Synopsis

  • Mock intellectual presentations: Rockwell and Keen as visionaries, comparing Cristo with the Exxon Valdez oil spill, comparing Pol Pot and Charles Manson, Freud and Reich and Barry Manilow.
  • People call Joe, praise him, and then poison the scene. A dog barks and is shot. Joe coaches his parents in making a similar call.
  • Second person address to Alicia: eating meat, a misunderstood attack, adding reverb to a radio voice, an eloquent suicide note
  • Jimmy Swaggart
