Aaron Green: This is the longest hallway of all time!

Aldous Snow: It’s Kubrickian! (at Harrah’s Hotel & Casino)

She was very nice

Looking back, this is one of the first times I shared an example of my social anxiety, although I didn’t recognize it as such. Ag

I went to Best Buy today.

Everything in bold was actually said out loud as I was at the register. Everything in italics was said in my head.


Her: Is this an old movie?

Me: Oh, God. Yes.

Her: Is it a scary movie?

Me: Is “A Clockwork Orange” a scary movie? Like what she means by a “scary movie?” Um, kinda. I like the director.

Her: Do you like scary movies?

Me: No. But I said this was kinda scary and I’m buying it. Ugh. Not necessarily. I like Stanley Kubrick.

Her: Who?

Me: Nevermind. Nevermind.

Her: So what’s the best movie you’ve seen?

Me: Really? Wow. Well, she’s trying. And this is a good opportunity to expand her horizons, a chance to get her to think about a great film she’s never seen. Um, I guess…

Her: Like a NEW movie.

Me: Oh, um… Can I still say “All About Eve”? No. Crap!

Her: Like what’s the last really good movie you saw?

Me:  Last good new movie? Oh! “Moon” was really excellent. Oh! “Moon” was really excellent. Oh, jeez…

Her: What?

Me: Moon. Abort! It was only here for a little while. Stop talking, you fool! It was an independent film with Sam Rockwe…nevermind.

Her: What film?

Me: OH!Up!” “Up” was excellent. Made me cry and was very funny too!

Her: "Up?" You mean the cartoon?

Me: Ugh! The Pixar film? The animated feature? Do I go ahead and sound like a pompous ass and correct her? No. …yes…the cartoon.

Her: Oh

Me:

Her 

Me: Oh, good Lord! So what’s the best movie you’ve seen recently?

Her: Um…The Madea movie was really funny.

Me:  Um…

Her: 

Me: Uh huh.

Her: Yeah.

Me: Yeah.

Her: 

Me: Well, you have a good day now.

Her: You too.

I don’t know who invented the “Coke Freestyle” machine but I feel confident they never stood behind the average American at a regular soda fountain. We can’t efficiently manage eight choices, much less 800. 

The customers who are confronted with the machines at most places I visit interact with them the way the proto-human hominids at the beginning of “2001: A Space Odyssey” interacted with the monolith. They’re scared and tentative at first, then have a moment of clarity, and finally club the manager with their cup before throwing it in the air accompanied with a mighty yawp!

Dr. Strangelove is on TCM

It cannot be turned off. It is “Godfather” like in that way.

I couldn’t decide if it felt like I was peeing into a ceramic Muppet’s mouth or if HAL 9000 was watching me piss.
