INT. JOB'S APARTMENT - DAY
JOB, (early 30's) sits at his computer, his head propped up
by his left hand.
He stares blankly at the screen.
He types everything you just read.
Then he types this.
Then he sighs.
I have an earache.
I've never had an earache before. I
mean, this is going on one week.
And the last two days it's been
It makes writing a blog especially
challenging, because the pain is
distracting me. Plus, pain is not
He squints in pain.
He cracks his neck.
He looks over at his black cat, FANGS, who is hunting a wild
housefly in the middle of the room.
He is listening to a mix he's made for his boyfriend.
Currently playing is a track from the Mirah remix album,
Joyride; an album he enjoys, though he maintains there's no
real room for improvement on her original recordings, his
favorites being her first two efforts, "You Think It's Like
This But Really It's Like This" and "Advisory Committee",
which included the neo-wall-of-sound wonder-working of Phil
Allow me to add, also, that I've
loved every one of Mirah's albums;
each one contains at least one
jewel of a song that absolutely
sends me. No small feat, I've I've
mentioned in previous blogs...
Uh... so I guess I was done speaking?
I'm sorry. Did I interrupt you?
Oh. Sorry. Go ahead.
Thank you. Eh-hem... Job stops speaking and waits for the
directive comments in the script to have their say...
Is that what they're called?
Is that what those parts of a film
script are called? 'Directive
You don't know, do you?
Hey! It's cool. I mean, I don't
care. I mean, I obviously don't
know myself, otherwise I'd have
typed that, right?
Don't be embarrassed! It's not your
I know, but I don't even know what I'm called!
Dude, chill out. I'm not stressing
about it and I'm the dumb-ass who's
Good. Now, go on with what you were
I don't remember.
You were talking about how much I
love Mirah, who's music can be
found in the rock/pop section at
I don't remember what else I was going to say.
Hm. Well, tell you what, I'm gonna
start getting ready for work, so
you can detail that. Okay?
Job scratches the side of his head and worries that LA has
given him dandruff.
He takes a sip of water.
He turns up the music, which is now playing a ridiculous
cover of "Tainted Love" as sung by Rupert Everett, which is
featured on the soundtrack for "Hearts of Fire", a
collector's item which can occasionally be found at Amoeba
Music and which features songs by one of its cast members,
Bob Dylan, making the kind of embarrassing music that was
made in the dark times of the 1980's.
If I could go back in time I'd pay
for John Hinckley to get target
That's not funny.
Neither were the 1980's.
Remember what happened when you time travelled to Tudor
England? Besides, you're interrupting me again.
Job cracks his knuckles and enters the restroom, where he
brushes his teeth for a ridiculously long time.
He puts on some clothes.
EXT. SUNSET BOULEVARD - DAY
He walks to Amoeba Music Hollywood.
He reminds himself to use both legs when walking.
Ah, yes... that's much easier.
INT. AMOEBA MUSIC HOLLYWOOD - MOMENTS LATER
Job clocks-in, hugs Karen, walks back to the soundtrack
What does a green price-tag mean?
You might as well stop here.
