AN AFTERNOON DIALOGUE


The following is a Gchat transcript of a conversation between myself (me) and Chicago-based musician, actor, and cineaste Steve Gilpin (Steven).


Steven: personally I didn't like Brick a whole lot
it was ok
but I REALLY fuckin' liked The Brothers Bloom
(in William Hurt voice) A HELLUVA LOT!!
sorry that was my pathetic excuse for a history of violence reference

me: brick was awesome

Steven: i didn't like it that much

me: you have cooties if you don't like brick

Steven: heh
then i guess i have cooties
i didn't hate it
just felt so self-conscious and didn't add up to much for me

me: sigh

Steven: interesting style, sure.
what?
sorry!

me: no reaching the kids these days i see

Steven: see i WANTED to like Brick
but i would be lying if i said i really dug it
does that make sense?

me: NO
IF IT IS WAR YOU WANT THAN IT IS WAR YOU SHALL HAVE

Steven: the movie's charms just eluded me, dude.
sorry for not partying with brick

me: I SHALL BOMB YOUR DRESDEN
I SHALL SEND YOUR LEADERS INTO HIDING

Steven: sigh
i mean i guess i could watch it again

me: NO
YOU WILL NOT WATCH IT AGAIN
YOU WILL BE BOMBED

Steven: heh
ok

me: YOUR FIELDS SHALL BE PLOWED WITH SALT
AND YOU WILL NOT BE ALLWOED TO WATCH
BECAUSE YOU WILL BE DEAD
TOO DEAD TO BUST MY BALLS ABOUT TYPOS
anyway
taste is subjective

Steven: heh
nice
CLAM THE FUCK DOWN BITCH

me: i am clam
starring sean fuckin penn in a shell, motherfucker

Steven: bwahahahaha
i am clam
nice
so i have a confession

me: HEROES IN THE HALF-SHELL TURTLE POWER

Steven: i never thought i would say this ever

me: YES?
PROCEED

Steven: i actually wanna see the Footloose remake

me: WELL IT'S FUNNY YOU SHOULD MENTION THAT, STEVEN

Steven: you are punchy today

me: THE DIRECTOR OF THAT FILM HAS DEMONSTRATED, IN HIS OTHER WORK, AN AUTEURIST SENSITIVITY AND A GENUINE FEELING FOR THE MILIEU IN WHICH THE ORIGINAL FOOTLOOSE WAS SET
HIS INTERESTS IN MUSIC AND CINEMA ARE OFT-DEMONSTRATED AND THE ADDED MEDIUM OF DANCE COMPLETES THE TRIAD IN A KIND OF AESTHETIC SYMMETRY THAT COULD LEAD TO A HIGHLY INTRIGUING FILM
WHICH IS TO SAY, YOUR INTEREST IN THIS FILM IS WARRANTED, DEFENSIBLE, AND INDICATIVE NOT OF AN AESTHETIC FAILING, BUT INDEED OF THE RARIFIED LEVEL OF TASTE THAT YOU'VE FREQUENTLY DEMONSTRATED OVER THE DECADE AND CHANGE THAT WE'VE BEEN FRIENDS
how's that for punchy
