TURKISH STAR WARS
What a weird movie! It really has nothing to do with Star Wars except that it steals footage from A NEW HOPE. It was basically just a campy Turkish Kung-Fu movie with "a lot of trampoline jumping" says Benny P. That was the main character's (not exactly sure who he was supposed to be... Luke? Han?) main move, the jump! We saw it with live music and there were people on stage making the sound effects and doing the voices. It was pretty hilarious. Especially when they randomly show up in Egypt.
It looks like the main actor in TURKISH STAR WARS is also RAMBO in TURKISH RAMBO. This also looks like it has nothing to do w/ FIRST BLOOD. I'd still see it.

I feel like shit. 2 weeks ago I went to the hospital and had some blind guy take a blade and cut out some glass or a rock or some shit directly out of the center of my right heel. I told him I didn't think it was fixed and he just handed me the blade and told me to be careful and that was it. Flash forward! 2 days ago I am still limping around on this heel and then I notice I have a splinter in the other foot just beneath my 2 toe. Good thing I have that fancy "gettin' shit outta your foot" blade! So I start shavin' off skin and sure enough that tiny stick pops right out... but whoops I think I went too far. I must have severed about 2 million nerves and every time I step on it it feels like all my toes are broken. Oh yea, and I tried to cut at that original spot on the heel for some time and now walking in general is a real drag. Running doesn't much bother me though, although I haven't run in almost a week because I got sick last Wednesday and the cold, damp air just isn't working with my lungs right now.
When I got home from work today around 5:15pm I started reading 3 articles and writing responses to them, as well as editing my final draft on my paper about DR. STRANGELOVE. What a great movie.
Last week I was listening to Rock 'n' Roll w/ Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers non-stop. What a comforting, fun, and beautiful record. I especially enjoy "South American Folk Song," "The Sweeping Wind," "Summer Morning," & of course "Egyptian Reggae." Listening to Jonathan Richman reminds me of cruisin' w/ Ange. I feel like I am heading up Mt. Rainier when I hear "You Can't Talk to the Dude." A while back Ben Kapp was talking about being Jonathan Richman for the Night of the Living Tribute Bands! Do it Ben! Give me a reason to go!
At the very top of this post is a movie poster for the early 80's Psych-Black Magic Kung Fu film BOXER'S OMEN. I just go it from Netflix. Thanks Joey Casio. I am currently listening to "Temptation" on the used copy of Susbstance 1987 that I bought on ebay last week. It sounds so good, and it's making me feel pretty nostalgic.
Also, Ness & I are in the middle of the 7th season of Seinfeld & it's blowing my mind! Best show ever? I really want to read this book from '93 called SEINLANGUAGE! HAHA Jerry. His real name was Jerome. Haha. What a funny guy.

This song rules, it's on Bo's Have Guitar, Will Travel record. I would recommend this record to anyone who likes Rock 'n' Roll. I had only heard "Cops & Robbers" & "Dancing Girl" off this album (which is his 3rd album) & I don' t know why I waited so long to get this one. Anyways, look how funny this record cover is:
