Julia Child, Black Flag, Iggy Pop, Omlette Party
As part of my ongoing emnity between my & my brain; when I woke up saturday morning I treated myself to a leisurely linger in bed. As I lingered languidly, leisurely & laconic (no more alitteration I promise) there was a marathon of Julia Child episodes on public television, & since I hadn;t seen it in years I was giving it a shot.
As I was enjoying the 3rd consecutive episode which happened to be dedicated to the humble omlette, “which should not take more than 20 seconds to make…” I was hypnotized by the almost slight of hand technique that produced them, but as the episode went on Julia began repeatedly mentioning “omlette parties” & their logistics. By the time she said “omlette party” for the upteenth time I suddenly imagined a very early “Black Flag” singing about omlettes to the tune of “TV Party”, one of their less impressive songs.

At one point, much to my own shame, I found myself briefly considering promoting a “Punk Rock Omlette Party!!!” at Area 7 where the “Opera Mash Up” used to be thinking that it wasn’t really a signifigantly more absurd concept. Then I remembered how much I hate doing dishes so I decided to focus on the posibilities of a “Power Metal” concept album about a viking squirrel… but first I have to finish shooting the movie.
