Today featured sleepless night followed by awake morning anticipation of the exterminator. The apartment building contracted a company to spray for roaches. We haven't had any, but I've seen a couple dead ones in the elevator.
The stuff they used should be non-toxic. Being a cigarette smoker, I have no right to object.
Jim and I went to see The Big Bounce. Owen Wilson entertained us well, however, the story is a more simplistic version than I believe Elmore Leonard probably intended. The ending had holes. Those who've seen it may feel free to discuss.
It's a good DVD rental however . . . I'd rent it.
After that, we went to Amoeba Records, which is right next door to the Arclight.
Amoeba Records puts Record Time back home to shame.
They had everything.
Carl Craig's The Detroit Experiment, Derrick May, Hawtin, Squarepusher, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Air, Buck 65, Blue Oyster Cult, James Brown, Aesop Rock, every major and minor label, 60s-70s music posters, signed Rage Against the Machine posters, DVDs, hard-to-find DVDs, out-of-print CDs, vinyl, the kitchen sink, countless new and used offerings, all in ample supply.
And it was all very affordable and very sexy.
Not that I wanted those things . . . I only bought I-F's Fucking Consumer, and I bought my own copies of Boards of Canada, In a Beautiful Place in the Country, and a limited edition used Geogaddi.
They were all out of Ellen Allien, just like Record Time. I so wanted the weiss.mix album, but damned if they had only vinyl, which doesn't do me any good.
Then Jim and I went across the street to Jack in the Box so I could grab a 15-minute carry-out order off their combo-meal standard menu. Taking a roll of the Mad Cow dice.
It's all fun and good until the bills arrive.
Soon the income shall begin to flow.
