Miscellanea and Ephemeron
05/03/2004 Archived Entry: "Wasted Minds"
Forced pretentious dribble thrown together in mock effort.
The title is appropriate in as much as the characters are just that; wasted minds.
I’m far too old and educated to voluntarily read through empty words, and self-serving expressions of “woe is me”.
We are greeted with David, an angry-depressed-semi-closeted artist with a crutch. The crutch is obviously the literal as well as expressive representation of the term.
David attacks his father for breaking into the house. Dad doesn't have a key now, since he and mom are getting divorced. David has a friend/girlfriend who then breaks in unannounced. But she succinctly kicks his ass with a chain. How nice.
Daddy questions his sons sexuality, the girlfriend challenges his manhood, and the sister seems pretty much done with the whole scene. She is for all intensive purposes a mere add on character salt and peppering the scene with weak one liners of no apparent value. In the closing scene mom enters accusing the almost divorced husband of allowing assasines into the house while putting him in a headlock and screaming "Bullshit!" as a retorte to his "explanations".
Degrading, debasing, violent, harsh, crass, and classless.
After reading this I should file assault charges against the author.
