me: just bought ongbak2
dvd or vidisc
lemme know when it arrives
me: reports say it might not actually have subs even though it said it did
Ian: but whatever
i don't own any tony jaa movies with subs
it almost ruins it
Ian: subs''ll probably be atrocious anyway
me: which can be a good and bad thing

just watcht sicko
Ian: any good?
me: uh, yes
it's still a michael moore movie
Ian: his hammy fists beating at your irritation nerves
me: so he fudges certain things to make them seem one way, not lies perse, but it's frustrating, cause he really doesn't need to do that and it just discredits otherwise good work
how longs is it?
me: he got 911 rescue workers free healthcare in cuba
Ian: wait, what about 911 workers
me: he took them to cuba and cuba hooked 'em up with free meds and all sorts of procedures
because our gov wouldn't help volunteers
me: so off duty emts that helped and got sick weren't covered
Ian: that's pretty cool -- maybe not an argument, but still pretty cool
it's a michael moore flick, so it makes more emotions points than intellectual ones
I should probably watch it at some point.
me: it's free online
me: streams fast, low res
Ian: I just have trouble thinking: this is the next hour and a half of my life.
while I'm online
me: yeah, i watched it periodically over my last two shifts
Sent at 12:41 PM on Wednesday
me: that's me for you
Ian: no thanks
my problem is, the gorilla never seems to be acting natural.
It's like he's all "I'm an asshole," but I can't believe it.
Just seems like a nice guy I guess.
Ian: Oh, sorry, got convos mixed up
forget I wrote that
Ian: just kidding.
me: i figured
Ian: just bein' weird
me: it was so "i got convos mixt up"-suspicious
I would never earnestly write "convos"
me: is that important to you
me: i accept your statement then
Ian: I'd write it ironically, as above
me: or with "quotes"
Ian: like a sucker
quotes are nature's cop-outs
Ian: quotes are "nature's cop"-outs
me: i'm trying to figure out what's going on with that
Ian: nothing particularly useful
me: i'm thinking:
Ian: just playing around with em
me: cops in the forest (forest=nature) trying to find a way out
the cop is made of trees
Ian: that the natural (speech world) is policed by quotations; speech without ramifications = coercive control over linguistic expression
oh yes, copse. I like that too
Sent at 12:48 PM on Wednesday
me: natural is speech-world?
Ian: yep. I went there
me: you sure didi
me: that buddy
i mean thanks buddy
Ian: which buddy
me: you with the ali oop
Ian: got it
me: how the fuck do you spell ali oop
though that's more like allies in arms,
not really allie-oop ish
me: alley oop
Ian: maybe there are different kinds of ali oops for different occasions.
me: derived from the french allez-oop
Ian: I've your bud helps you out it's an ally-oop
if you are in the middle east it's an ali oop
if you are in, um, an alley, it's an alley oop
and so on
me: i accept
"the cry of a circus acrobat about to leap"
Ian: aieee! oop
or were you thinking of something else?
me: also that
no, that straightup where the term comes from
Sent at 12:55 PM on Wednesday
me: "In the 2008 film Semi-Pro, protagonist Jackie Moon invents the alley-oop after being knocked unconscious and speaking with his deceased mother in a depiction of Heaven. The crowd and announcers are left nearly speechless, unable to comprehend what happened, and the referee thinks that the maneuver is two fouls."
Ian: that sounds good.
w/ will ferrel
me: i like that it says "depiction of Heaven"
Ian: In case anyone was worried
me: like, there's an in-movie assumption that it's not real?
yeah, don't worry people, not really heaven
Ian: it's cool guys
we didn't actually film heaven
you won't go to hell for watching it
me: that is good,
i haven't seen the movie
but now i at least know i can
Ian: see it?
Ian: I heard it was completely "ok".
me: oh, of course
it'd too "post-anchorman"
like, just trying to do that same style over and over
me: i mean, it's cool for a while but movie on
Ian: he did like 5 sports movies. It's like geeeeez

Ian: why is that?
me: your words: APPROPRIATED
it's because i was writing a poem capturing the "response artifact" of watching sicko
whatever the fuck that means
Ian: oh, just the way you're always like "response artifact" and then follow it up like you don't mean it.
It'll be on the internet so it's not "serious"
its just ephemera
Ian: you're just a goof with a pretentious streak then?
i don't think i'm pretentious
Ian: I'm joking
in a sense
me: so you're "joking"
Ian: different shade of meaning
me: we need more ways to differentiate the planes on which various forms of meaning happens
I mean "lol"
finally talking in a "language' I can understand
me: i first thought it was double quotes on both sides, then though of doing double quote then single, then I saw that that was in fact what you'd done
that was the play-by-play of my reaction
Ian: I like it when brain processes are trackable
me: perhaps I had the idea only because part of my brain noticed what it really was
Ian: What a novel idea! I should consider mixing it up with... oh, yes.
Sent at 2:12 PM on Wednesday
me: i talked to gretchen on the phone about the movie, but didn't record it
so i could try to write it down, but it would just be the capture artifact of the response
which is cheetin'

me: well, cheating, sort of, mostly just not what the poem's about
