I don't even wanna talk about it

I hope everyone is having a great Monday. I am not, but as described on Saturday, not much I can say at this time.

I will say: If you live in a HOUSE, just be grateful that you do not have to deal with lunatics mere feet away from you. If you live in an apartment, you probably know exactly the sort of thing I refer to ... or close enough!

I have featured fabulous Helena Kallianiotes here before; I think it was last summer. It is time for a reprise!

This is series of clips from the film Five Easy Pieces (1970). Helena, Jack Nicholson's hitchhiker-from-hell, explains, well, what's wrong with everything.

I know exactly how she feels. Crap and more crap and more crap....

Thanks, Daisy. I love Helen and Five Easy Pieces.

I always said it would have to take something really bad for me to call the cops. Well, it was bad.

I had neighbors in German Village who liked to sit in their outdoor hot tub until 4 AM talking racist crap and fighting 10 feet from my bedroom window. I finally had it. When the cop came and told them to cool it, one of the dipshits unbelievably offered him a hit of coke. The cop thought he was joking and left.

That sucks Daisy! Hope it works out for you! I'd offer to switch for a week but I've got an elderly party babe next to me. I swear her voice can carry 50 miles. Sucks at 3am.

Eh. I think sharing a house with a lunatic is worse; you can't even close the door of your home on them, and sometimes can't even get out of earshot.

Here's hoping things improve for you soon.

My sympathies: Neighbors from Hell are, well, from Hell. Most of my worst neighbors have been sporadic and/or temporary. This does not make them less annoying when they're, ah, behaving. Particularly at 3 AM.

The one I'm able to laugh about (now) involved someone who was apparently taping dialog for a porn flick with the recorder at the other end of the apartment and with all her windows open...

Five Easy Pieces keeps being terrific scenes strung together by Jack Nicholson sulking. Yeah, I know, alienation. But I didn't like him (and I saw it in the '70s when I was predisposed to like him) and it was probably the misogyny.

I love your psychedelic Stealie! It's so pretty!!!

We used to have a neighbor from hell. We moved to Washington in part b/c we had to get away from her. I was seriously considering hiring a hit man to have her killed. We thought it prudent to move b/f I ended up in prison for assaulting her.

thanks for posting this video...it was great! What a super clip to see when it suits the mood. So sorry you're having a bad time...perhaps you could consider moving up here to the vastly unpopulated areas of the Cariboo, haha!

Hope it all works out, Daisy...I will be thinking of you over the next while..

I realize I am lucky to live in a house, but also realize that apartment neighbors are one of the things I am *not* looking forward to when I move away. Sorry you are dealing with them...

Good luck with the neighbors. Thanks for the reminder that I need to see that flick again, SOON.
