Monkey magic

I've just watched Inherit the Wind, an account of the 1925 Scopes 'monkey' trial, courtesy of a gloriously scratchy old VHS cassette from Videon. The film actually seemed far more modern than it did on a rainy childhood afternoon back in the 80s. Depressingly relevant, even, when one considers reports like this. Methinks it's time for some militant materialism!

Can somebody provide me with Jack Ross's address? It is clearly fruitless to try to pursue the purification of his mind, not mention his other organs, when the owners of this blog are so intent on shifting subjects, dealing and redealing the same old packs of dogeared cards, smoking the cigarettes down to the stubs, and beyond: how elementary would an answer from Jack have to be, to break through this curtain of pseudo-silence? Richard Taylor I only repeat what you were saying.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
