I'm as colorful as the story I'm telling.
This one's filmed in glorious Technicolor.
Full-color pinup to film legend to murdered.
Oh, don't believe what they say about an accidental overdose.
Last thing I saw from the floor of my Brentwood bungalow was a CIA spook jabbing a needle into my eyeball, lest I tell Kennedy tales unwanted.
Isn't that delicious?


I'm all sorts, Shadow.
The screen is the altar. I'm the one they sacrifice to.
Then till now. Golden Age to Golden Age.
They sit side by side, ignore each other, and give it up to me.
Now they hold a smaller screen on their lap or in the palm of their hand so they don't get bored watching the big one.
Time and attention, better than lamb's blood.


Why, you pretty thing, you.
You have an image problem.
You need to think about your brand, how you want the world to see you.
How you want Mr. World to see you.
Tasked with asking a few questions.
You hang a black man from a tree.
You've got your transmission and your live wire, but your circuit's dead.
Take a look at you, beating up the wrong guy.
You're a good kid, just not good with people you don't know.

~ Media to Technical Boy


Candy cream eggs, cellophane grass, bunnies and duckies, we popularized the pagan.
We practically invented brunch.
We built this holiday.
You and me.
We're a couple of swells.
