What happed to the kid/man at the jakes?
« on: February 19, 2017, 09:40:31 PM »
Should he have pulled the trigger when he had the chance?

Why did he hesitate then?

After everything he had been through?

I would say account hack, but based on earlier posts, this isn't anything new.  Not to worry, I don't know what's going on either.  ;)

I didn't know Billy Kidman ever had a chance to shoot Jake the Snake Roberts, but if you say so.

You've never read the book?

He has a chance to kill the judge,
as kid,
but doesn't

And then he meets the judge again by "chance" as a man,
and is unafraid

And then he makes love to a woman,
before he has to take a pee

And the judge embraces him in the Jakes
And then the judge dances in nude glory

I didn't actually read the actual book,
but the audiobook is really good!
The one that I "read" he does really good voices and fleshes it out

So the book is called "Kid/Man at the Jakes"?  I am completely lost.  You are providing such little context, I assumed this was supposed to be in one of the child boards for a rifftrax movie.

After some googling I think it might be the book Blood Meridian he is talking about.  ?

First of all, there's a difference between being well-read and knowing the VERY specific content of a specific book.  If you wanted to talk about Blood Meridian, you probably should have titled the thread as such.

It seems very arrogant to claim that one isn't well-read if they HAVEN'T read Blood Meridian (which you also admitted to not doing).  It's sort of like saying:

"So why did he leave his cane behind?  Doesn't he want it back?"
"What are you talking about?"
"Oh, a movie.  Don't you like that movie?  I thought everyone did."
"What movie."
"Miracle on 34th Street.  I guess I expected you to be a cinephile."

I love this thread for how poorly written the original post is.  The complete and utter lack of any context is funny.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

If you had read Blood Meridian, the style of this thread might make a little more sense.  Then again it might not, actually.

Either way, I can say without feeling that I'm exaggerating that it's one of the best novels ever written.  Belongs on the same shelf with Dostoevsky, Faulkner, Joyce, etc....


PS And it happens to be the book my name comes from.
