-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
Took a cab home from Factory tonight. Get in, sit back. Suddenly, from the front seat:
"Stopped they must be; on this all depends. Only a fully-trained Jedi Knight, with the Force as his ally, will conquer Vader and his Emperor."
So without thinking, I exclaim "Dude?!" and lean forward to see a DVD player set up on the console. Cabbie asks if I said something, and I mention how unexpected Empire Strikes Back is in this context.
This city is so odd.
Just be glad he didn't decide to reenact the speeder thinger on Hoth on his way to your place.Posted by: solios at November 13, 2005 2:46 AM
