    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Xeriscaping." He pronounced it zero-scaping, and gave me a sardonic look. "What's that, is that like, uh, landscaping for nihilists or something? No scape at all? Hey, I can see that, you just cover everything with cement, and paint it green. Punk gardening. I like it."

    "No, xeriscaping is—it's like—when you live in a dry climate. Desert. People who end up in the desert—usually, they try to have a normal garden, a lawn, 'cause that's what they know. It looks normal to them. But what they don't understand, they don't get it that once you're in the desert you don't get to have that anymore. I mean, you can, but it's—the minute you stop dumping water on it, it dies. Because it doesn't belong there. But if you just go with what you have, if all that'll grow there is cactus and buffalo grass, then that's what you plant, you deal with it, that's the kind of garden you get to have. That's xeriscaping. It's just—" I could see him tuning out, I knew I needed to shut off the words. I couldn't let myself get nervous. "It's just playing the hand you're dealt. That's all. "

    Bookmarker's Notes

    But when Joe starts calling Billy a whore, it's a bad word, a mean word, twisted in his mouth. Sellout, slut, it's just a matter of slurring. Billy laughs it off, and when he can't laugh it off he fights it, and when he can't fight it anymore he says, "Well, fuck me then, if I'm such a whore, isn't that what you like?"

    Summary

    Despite the music, despite the obvious patchwork lie that makes up the final cut, there is something raw and honest about this damn film, something -- something Geoffrey overused and abused, applied with indiscriminate disaster to his own life, something Shakespearean.
