comedian? Genius

Whatcha mean Toledo?

i dunno – Elmore Leonard steppin’ inside the skin of Raylan Givens
Gord Downie looking out through the eyes of Bill Murray
or, Murray looking down at himself and at
a Canadian rock crowd.

Doppelgänger’s you mean Toledo?

personality traits, i think more Jim
such as a Mac computer sharing screen time
with a Lennox

Oh – so binary genetics with a twist. That what you mean, Toledo?

perhaps. just certain people or things that when you see ’em
you think – they could be the same as the other feller
that just crossed yer mind



Think maybe we’ve been in this bar long enough?

like how Kilmer has been inside Mark Twain’s suit all this time?

Yeah Toledo – winter is coming on
and even though it’s colder n’ hell out there

a direct opposite of what i’m trying to explain to you

What’s that Toledo?

cold vs hell

Ok – yea sure Toledo, but what I’m sayin’ is
it may be gettin’ cold
we gotta go home back to our wives
your philosophizn’, is beyond what this normal
bar crowd can handle

how’s that old friend?

Well – in this bar we talk hockey
Leafs V Bruins and
what not.
Poetry and music and novels
just don’t fly

even in this context?

Especially in this context ….
