These Slippery People.



n. the awareness of the smallness of your perspective, by which you couldn’t possibly draw any meaningful conclusions at all, about the world or the past or the complexities of culture, because although your life is an epic and unrepeatable anecdote, it still only has a sample size of one, and may end up being the control for a much wilder experiment happening in the next room.

Popeye— he’s fucking great in it. That’s the weirdest movie of all time— why is Robert Altman directing a movie about Popeye? Who did I meet that said— they had stories about meeting Robin. He was like, we went to Malta to shoot that— Malta, an island in the middle of the Mediterranean. And he’s like, there’s no coke there— and that’s at a point in my life where I was fueled by cocaine, I had to have cocaine. And so, they couldn’t get cocaine there. So all of the sudden a bunch of Parisian models, like really sexy female Parisian models started showing up to the island of Malta. And all of the sudden, Robin Williams had coke. And it turns out that Popeye was made by vag-ed Parisian model coke. He had a bunch of sexy Parisian mules carrying the stuff. It’s a good movie.

I don’t want to live in a world where Robin Williams wasn’t getting Parisian pussy coke.
