On Riding the Staten Island Ferry for the Sake of Riding of the Staten Island Ferry on a Wednesday Afternoon
Let me tell you about the Staten Island Shuffle, which me and my friends often partake in:
1. Get on Staten Island ferry in Manhattan. Board and immediately get a oil can of Fosters. (It's $4!!!) Stand outside and drink the oil can. You MUST drink it all before you get to Staten Island or the boat will sink.
2. Get off at Staten Island. Immediately turn around and get on the next boat. Board and order Fosters. Go outside. Drink it all before you get to Manhattan.
@leonstj 9 has gotten me laid on multiple occasions (including this past weekend), so no shame.
@jengetsaround My friends and I call it "Shawshanking," which I prefer.
"Everything’s going to be okay. That’s what you wanted to hear, isn’t it, Cancer?"
...it sure is.
Yeah, why ISN'T it in black and white? I always thought a film version should be in b&w and colors are gradually added as Jonah seems them more (the apple flashing, Fiona's hair). Kind of a bummer :/
@Lucienne She wrote an autobiography if that's of interest to you! I haven't read any of the others on Maud listed here (though I've done a LOT of Yeats reading). Women of the Golden Dawn looks very interesting; I may look into that one myself.
@Michelle Markowitz I mean, are there A LOT of Irish dudes hanging around Sunnyside? Because I live in Astoria and could EASILY spend a lot more time there.
I could listen to the Irish accent all day long.
@Megasus Man, as soon as I saw the woman in the house I predicted that she was Errol's sister.
I kind of wish the show had ACTUALLY had a Southern Gothic ending. Marty gets shot and killed. ("He would've been a good man if there had been somebody there to shoot him every minute of his life.") Rust blinds himself with quicklime, ties barbed wire around his stomach, and starts preaching to everyone about the Yellow King.
@Lauren_O'Neal Right! With the dolls in the beginning, and then her acting out with the boys...
Plus the idea of this being a rape-murder ritualistic CULT with A LOT of members. What drew them to the cult? Was Billy Childress that charismatic? Was it really the elder Tuttle behind the whole thing? Who STARTED it?
It's just...if you're going to incorporate all this mythology, I expect at least a little bit of a explanation. Otherwise it reminds me of the ending of Lost and makes me sad and angry.
