LoL, well, my friend Bob used to be quite a drunk. He's changed his ways, but drunk people don't generally look for quality, they just want someone willing, you know?

But back to my original point: Well, Blurred, now that we're standing here in the middle, with Tent on one side and Anita on another, I'd like you to really get acquainted with these two fine individuals, study them, learn from them, and whenever you're in a crisis of conscience, reach out to them. As you can clearly see, these are serious people who choose not to take themselves too seriously (that's important). They are obviously of good humor, and very accommodating. I just wanted to really introduce them into your life (Rainey is a backup plan). Get acquainted.
As for xzc; he is a nice young man and I don't know if you ever got around to communicating with him. To be fair, he may get on your nerves by trying to take himself way too seriously. He's just trying to impress you. Just imagine yourself being a cat and he a ball of yarn. He's quite funny once he's comfortable and less defensive. And if you're too busy with your artisan pursuits to engage him, that's cool, just let him know.
xzc and I are in contact, I've enjoyed talking to him. A couple weeks ago we got into a heated little debate, it was quite fun. I find him to be an intelligent and altogether worthwhile person to converse with.
"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don't bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: 'It's not where you take things from - it's where you take them to.'" - Jim Jarmusch
