i know me.

people i know.

rapidly aging human i know.

squirrel i know.

my mom has been feeding the squirrels in her yard pumpkins and apparently teaching them how to pose for photos. the reasons for this, so far, are unclear to me.

roshan posted an interview he did with me on his blog. it's sort of long but it's the exact length that if you read it, you'll probably never have to actually talk to me again. i disagree with some of what i said, but i stand by stanley lieber being the godfather of livejournal and chris ware being the mariah carey of comics.

i met roshan a year or two ago. aleks and i were coming back from a party in new jersey and were exhausted. it was the weekend so the subways were all fucked up and it was the summer so it was 700 degrees. after getting on and off the g train 200 times i heard some guy say something like 'are you pete?' i, of course, immediately thought it was some sort of con artist attempting to rob me/lure me into the lucrative world of adult films/sell me drugs, so the question was met with my 'brooklyn attitude'. i didn't realize i even had a 'brooklyn attitude' until i started doing it to my family members at my cousin's wedding. though some of those family members were probably attempting to cast me in porn. anyway, it was roshan on the train, and i think we talked about comics and he only vaguely hinted at hiring me to run drugs for him.

pete = michael corleone

aleks = kay

dzima = sonny

anglerfish = fredo

dean = tom hagen

nicepimmelkarl = one of the thugs

according to the scheme of things, i will be killed by machine gun yielding pro-blogspot/livejournal-foes soon.

this is pretty accurate casting. though the character in godfather i most identify with is the decapitated horse.
