Archive for April, 2016

April 24, 2016-April 25, 2016 – I was listening to a podcast hosted by Kevin Corrigan. My brother was about to come on and discuss “Cool Stuff” – a radio show that he hosted with his friend when they were about 10 or 11. So it turned out that “Cool Stuff” was a segment of Kevin’s podcast. So this was in the 90’s. I wondered if my brother was still going to declare Batman & Robin the movie of the year. I was walking from 20th to 30th Street in Manhattan while listening. I was watching Batman Returns. The beginning took place right after the first one ended. Batman was in the hospital. The scene was in the waiting room. Catwoman (played by Anne Hathaway) arrived. She was in costume. Batman’s girlfriend (played by Lena Dunaham), who was dressed like Batman, had just checked on him and told Catwoman what was going on. There was a couple sitting down who were also wearing Batman-style outfits. Daredevil (played by Ben Affleck) was also in the movie. It cut to a scene in which he was on top of a skyscraper at night. He jumped down and landed on a thin structure jutting out from the side of a building, which somehow did not hurt his legs. The girl sitting next to me in the theater (who kind of looked like one one my grad school friends) said, “Whoa.”

The Extra Big Short

April 23, 2016-April 24, 2015 – People were making deals having to do with the markets from The Big Short. Some older woman had just finished a deal. Her financial advisor told her over the phone that her deal had just gone through. Ryan Gosling’s character was on the phone with someone to clarify that he was betting against the market. Once that was cleared up, he pumped his hand and yelled, “Yes!” Someone was telling Elliott from Mr. Robot that this wasn’t what his dad would have wanted. But Elliott knew what he was doing. He was looking at his info on a Word document. He had 38 Word docs open. They were open on only half of his monitor.

April 14, 2016-April 15, 2016 – I was downstairs by myself at a party. The TV had been left on NBC. A new anthology series was on. I thought it was a rerun at first (it was about 10:30 on a Saturday), but it was actually new – episode 3 or thereabouts. It featured Joel McHale and Alison Brie. Their characters seemed like Jeff and Annie. Then I realized that they were, in fact, Jeff and Annie. They were swimming together on a board in the ocean. Jeff seemed unwilling to admit how he felt. Annie stood up on the board and flipped him over on his back. He had a huge erection, so it was pretty clear how he felt. I was going to tell everyone on the Milady-Milord LiveJournal about this new show.

December 12, 2015-December 13, 2015 – I went to a bar, or I was watching a group of people hang out at a bar. Michael Che was with some guy. Che wasn’t really feeling the place, even though they were on a rollercoaster, there were a lot of fluffy candy-coated decorations, and other fun and games. It turned out that he had had an awkward experience with a girl here, and there was a chance he would run into her tonight.

April 4, 2016-April 5, 2016 – I was watching an alternate ending of the UNC-Villanova championship game. Nova got an offensive rebound and put in a layup. All the shots at the end were down low, no 3’s. The score was never tied; it was just one team holding on to an at least 1-point lead (North Carolina, I believe).

March 31, 2016-April 1, 2016 – I was walking through a store (that kind of felt like a museum) with my aunt, sister, and Dad. Our attention was caught by a TV playing Radiohead’s SNL performance of “National Anthem.” I leaned over to my aunt and told her that this was my second or third favorite SNL musical performance of all time. We got a female employee to rewind the clip back to the beginning. (We didn’t get to see the introduction.) It started with Keith Urban singing on stage, while Radiohead waited their turn (a few of the Radiohead members helped him with the music). I had forgotten (or never really known) that he also did the music on this episode. We still weren’t getting to Radiohead’s performance, and I was wondering if we were ever going to. My family had left by this point. I sat on a bench with Kanye West in the mall hallway outside the store. A woman came out and updated Kanye on what was going on. He was upset that we still weren’t able to see his performance (because it was somehow his performance, or he was Radiohead, or something like that).
