The Dharma Bums and other bummers

December 1, 2009 at 11:13 am 1 comment

I know. I was supposed to be haggling for jeans but I ended up at the flea market’s bookstore, drooling over hard-to-finds while fishing my pockets for cash and crossing my fingers that I have enough.

After 12 minutes, I was hugging a bag of paperbacks with a ridiculous sneer across my face: Ariel by Sylvia Plath, Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk and The Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac (which was written for the unborn Bjorn three decades before her mother squeezed her out into the soul-stupefying, shit-for-brains world)

Sunday books

14 hours later, David Sedaris was indirectly speaking to me through the Helvetica typefaced manuscript on his life as a Crystal-meth consuming, popularly-supposed performance artist: The art world was our conceptual oyster, and we ate it raw.

23 fresh paperbacks yet to de-virginize. Geekery rocks.

Speaking of performance art, kohl guyliner enthusiast Adam Lambert french-kissed his keyboardist on national television and simulated oral sex with one  of the performance’s male dancers. Guylining Lambert vehemently protested on apologizing to ‘parental guidance’ obsessed America stating that he was on to ‘perform and not to babysit’ (by the way, spot the oxymoron which works perfectly coupled with the word ‘America’)

Lambert, apparently, carried out the still-taboo-act-no-thanks-to-the-rainbow-revolutionaries-of-the-21st-century as a political statement on the entire third sex issue.

Lambert is disappointed over the double standard in the entertainment community where women performers forge ahead with controversial performances and get away with it.

I personally think the kiss was spicy. But on national television? Nay. I’d appreciate the scenario better on a Sunday afternoon from an open window, and the entire discovery of the kiss purely accidental.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on Dharma Bums. Bringing Status Anxiety to our rendezvous at the bookstore and frozen yogurt store later this evening 😀

    Speaking of this shit-for-brains world, I have decided to remove my bookmark to the Inquirer. Headlines from the past few weeks may have been central to the development of my intestinal DISORDERS.

    “Spare him his life from this monstrosity!”
