This is a drawing of actor Stephen Geoffreys from the 1985 movie Fright Night. I watched this last night, and there are some great performances in it. Geoffreys plays a character named Evil Ed, and I'm not sure that his performance is "great," but it's certainly unforgettable. Mrs. Plop Blop found this tidbit about him in his imdb bio: " In a startling and unexpected career move, Geoffreys wound up acting in numerous gay hardcore porno pictures under the pseudonyms Sam Ritter and Stephan Bordeaux." Seems like an interesting guy.
I used to have a recurring dream, many nights, that involved a plane crashing near me. I was never on the plane, just always close to the crash, sometimes running toward it and sometimes running away from it. Sometimes, I was even helping pull out the victims. It was usually in a field or in a residential area with lots of suburban houses. I don't have the dream anymore. I'm going to take that as a good sign.
I finished reading The Plague and started reading the last book in Cormac McCarthy's Border Trilogy, Cities on the Plain. I really liked the previous two books, All the Pretty Horses and The Crossing. I drew this here jack rabbit after reading this passage:
"The Oldsmobile had this big ovalshaped grille in the front of it was like a big scoop and when I got around to the front of the car it was just packed completely full of jackrabbit heads. I mean there was a hundred of em jammed in there and the front of the car the bumper and all just covered with blood and rabbit guts and them rabbits I reckon they'd sort of turned their heads away just at the impact cause they was all lookin out, eyes all crazy lookin. Teeth sideways. Grinnin. I cant tell you what it looked like. I come damn near hollerin myself."
Here's my quick, weirdo portrait of Albert Camus. I've been reading his novel The Plague and really enjoying it. Last year, I read The Fall and it's become one of my favorite books, for now, I think. Anyway, if you haven't read him, I would recommend both of those books.
