    happy Brexit Day everyone, I hope that we can reflect on what it is we want to be as a nation, and perhaps build better structures once we get over the inevitable disappointment on realising that in nineteen ninety eight the undertaker threw mankind off hеll in a cell, and plummeted sixteen feet through an announcer's table.

    Tues your adventure

    Got a neat little acting gig last night. In a fortnight there’s a playwriting competition and they’ve asked acting volunteers (about 20 of us) to step forward and perform the first five minutes of 10 plays. Each play will be judged and 4 plays will be selected to made in to proper full plays. I’m doing the first five minutes of two plays. I have to play a 70 year old man called Frank with a big heart and sad eyes. It’s great because we’re not getting judged as actors, it’s the writing that is being judged. Basically pressure free acting, which again to me is a bonus.

    You give me road rage

    Morning Ace bit of clown shoes driving this morning. Long queue of traffic up past the station. White van man decides that "fuck that!" and drives down the wrong side of the road to try to take an up-coming right hand turn. Only trouble is completely mistimes it and meets an artic coming the other way. "No problem" as he decides to mount the kerb to squeeze past the lorry - 90% of his vehicle on the pavement and looks like he might make it only he forgets that his right hand side of the vehicle is higher than then left, so wedges himself and the artic together. tried going forward, no dice, tried reversing, no dice. No idea what they are going to do but it looked expensive and very, very funny.

    The students used to look like they were enjoying themselves. Well at least at the start of it. Not so much at the end when they’re lying in a pool of their own piss and vomit.

    Monday morning blowie

    Today has been awful. Was on the train home when Mrs GUBE called. Her dad killed himself in the early hours of the morning. I dived off the train and headed back and we went up to the house in Preston. Just so brutal. Her 15 year old brother, uncomprehending and devastated. Waves of relatives coming in. People veering between practicality and grief in a second. I'd expired my usefulness so got out. Mrs GUBE is the strongest one there, her dad's 8 middle aged siblings included. Not really got much else. No need for commiserations as I only met him a handful of times.

    I turned 50 on Sunday, she asked me in the build up what do you want, it's so hard to know what to get you knowing as I do that you like running/LFC/ Beethoven but what do you want, what is it you want, and i would reply 'I want a cat, either a british shorthair or ragdoll, i've done the research., i want a cat. don't get me anything from amazon, i want a cat. In summary: cat' and she got me a £85 Virgin Experience voucher for a 30min flying lesson and I have never in my life expressed any interest in air travel used flight simulator software couldn't even tell you the difference between an airbus and Boeing actually have stated on some occasions that flying is shit and airplanes are shit I told her to return it. kids got me a jumper

    I've got a wretched cold, which was exacerbated by my exertions and late night last night. Loads of shit on at work too, and I have move house so there's literally no let up might as well just curl up in the corner and let the world carry on. We did manage to get on telly for real last night though.

    Tues your adventure

    These are wannabe playwrights learning their trade you understand trying to break on to the scene and get stuff performed. Which informs what happened next. After we did our run through another play by another bunch of actors was read out. According to the introduction and stage directions it was about a family living in Liverpool, partly of Irish descent, that were planning a move to America, (during the famine I think, but it wasn’t clear). It started out with a pregnant woman up a ladder. And the husband turns to her and says; ‘Eee what’s tha doing up t’ladder in your condition?’ I’m ashamed to say but I cracked up. To make matters worse the lass playing the part of the pregnant woman was French with quite a strong accent and all her lines were written as though they were spoken by someone from Barnsley. It was an absolute abomination.

    Films

    I think Clerks is good. I know it's dated terribly and the B&W doesn't cover for some amateurish acting and filmmaking (Miramax really helped clean it up in actually fundamental ways, losing the grain, adding music, and changing the ending - sadly Dante is still alive and we have to keep enduring him). It feels authentic to the maker and, from the little I recall, true to the generation. Mallrats is one I haven't seen in a while. I like the idea. What to do in capitalist America but endlessly chill until it becomes depressing and stale. The forced plot aspects are bad, but the frank sexuality curdles into grimness. Like one of the plot points is about a guy who nails a teenager in the ass. Come on guy. Chasing Amy is the one I'm most conflicted about. Its sexual politics are unforgivable, some of the dialogue is really stilted (apparently Smith hates when people go even slightly off-script, which is why a lot of his actors sound like they're struggling to catch breath), and the ending is mindbendingly stupid. And yet I think there is some emotional sincerity in there and his attempts at navigating emotional difficulties are the best he'd ever manage. Also the line "what's a Nubian?" is delivered perfectly. Dogma, for me, was the beginning of the serious slide. He cannot direct on scale. The first 3 films were pretty much defined by a limited geography of familiarity. Now he thinks he's Mr Proper Director that we've got to do a road trip meeting all kinds of wacky characters. The main problem is that the film leans too much on the concept of Catholic dogma. Watch it again. Every scene begins with a Wikipedia entry on who this guy is and why he is important. He can't, I don't know, SHOW US RATHER THAN TELL US. Clue: if you have to do this, you're doing it wrong. It isn't funny and not even Alan Rickman or Linda Fiorentino or Damon & Affleck's chemistry can save it. The original Jay & Silent Bob is just a stupid compendium of drugs and sex jokes by two guys who can't act and it doesn't even have the ambition of anything done before. Fan service before the term was properly invented. Jersey Girl was the pits. A mis-step in every way. I haven't seen a full one between that and the new one, but what I saw of Zack & Miri and Cop Out made me realise: he can't even do Hollywood genre movies well. Tusk, Red State, and Yoga Hosers are films I have no interest in whatsoever. But this new one makes all the above look fine. It is so badly written, acted, and executed. The joke is that they're satirising Hollywood's penchant for reboots ie. making the same film all over again for a loyal fanbase (I torrented), but really it's just a lot of bad drugs and lolgay humour (seriously, to the point where I was like "this guy has a problem"). It is meant to build to this climactic finish...but honestly who fucking wants to see Kevin Smith as a non-copyright Iron Man smashing some Russians? It was just amazing to me that 95 years previously, with none of the technological advantages available to him that Kevin Smith has, Buster Keaton made a film that was better on every conceivable level - even visual and technical ones. One of the fundamental building blocks of their film is the same thing: the reaction shot after the thing has gone wrong. Keaton's face is so subtle and expressive, everything coming out of the eyes while the rest of his face remains stoic and in control. It's funny and weirdly melancholic. Kevin Smith looks like he's about to burn out all the muscles in his face for the sum total of...no emotion at all. Sorry, went on a bit there. Needed to exorcise. TLDR won't be watching this shit anymore.
