I'm in love.

My $130 Stanley Kubrick Archives coffee table book has finally arrived, conveniently placed "bahind" my bushes by my friendly FedEx representative. I'm in love with it. All copies in the first printing come with a genuine strip of film from a copy of 2001: A Space Odyssey that was actually owned by Kubrick himself. My particular strip is from the trippy "Beyond the Infinite" portion of the film. Not the most exciting image, but coulda been a lot worse, I guess:

Being kind of a film nerd, it's one of the coolest things I've ever owned. I took a picture of it on my bed as an attempted visual indicator of the book's substantial size, but then I realized that the comparison won't help anyone who doesn't know how big my bed is. Oh well. I also put it on my bed because I'm going to have to make love to it later. I love you, Stanley Kubrick Archives coffee table book.

"Bahind" is the best of the worst misspellings I have ever seen. I want to believe that the FedEx guy was just being funny, cause they are generally a lot more edumacated than those dopey UPS people.

How was it again that a book listing on amazon for $200 was $130 for you?

Hey Dan, Sonny Crockett called. He wants his bed back.

I would imagine Crockett's bed to have more of a leopard or tiger print vibe, but I get the joke.

Ha ha! Stapler is my new best friend.

Time for a new "bed in a bag."

Um, do I have to remind you that you bought me that bedding for Christmas Brent? Nice try jackass.

By Blogger dan, at 11:23 AM  

He said "BED" not "bedding" and I tried to talk you out of the "bed" since I said it looked 80's. Besides, that was like two years should've changed that by now.

It's funny how one Sonny Crockett joke can turn two people against each other. Ha ha ha

By Blogger stapler, at 1:48 PM  

Um, no you said Bed in a Bad which is obviously referring to bedding, so nice try again jackass.

wow - what hostility - I was about to comment on the fact that Dan has nice taste. I like the bedding and the bed. I'd sleep over!

I was going to comment that I like your bed and bedding. Guess that means you have similar tastes as a Jersey girl. Hmm.

I like the bed too. It reminds me of a park bench. Have you ever been homeless, Dan?

Ha ha, 80's park bench from Jersey bed. Your new nickname is The Nanny...

By Blogger stapler, at 9:52 AM  

hehe. planetfran.

By Blogger dan, at 9:56 AM  

Wow, I'm so jealous - that is so cool. The book not the bed. The bed I'm undecided on..

By Blogger fishboy, at 9:53 AM

Give it back!!!

You can keep the bed.
