An Actual Conversation with My Cats, Oscar & Murmur

This is a dialog between me and my cats. I am trying to figure out why neither of them like anything other than me and food. They have been pretty nonchalant lately, and it’s worrying me. I mean, they get excited about birds and stuff, but they absolutely despise being like, closer than 5 feet away from each other, and they can never decide if they’d rather be sleeping inside on my black dress or outside spraying shit that they claim as theirs, even though they don’t really want that shit. They just can’t stand the thought of anyone else having the thing. The italicized comments are their unanimous responses to my inquiries about their feelings on daily experiences around the catio.

What about that tree? Hate it. But you like chasing those birds…? No, we want to murder them. How they taunt and tweet constantly. Sigh. What about cars? Do you like those? You kidding me? Nope. The other cat you live with? Most definitely not. <Hisss/Attack.> The carpet? We will destroy it. With our teeth. …And claws. The new toy I made you by hand? What are you talking about? That? Pfft. What about the window seat in the sunlight? Over it. There’s perfectly good sunlight on the floor.

This line of inquiry went on and on. We figured out there were a few other things they liked other than me (Sometimes.) We ruled out sardines, Cheez Whizz, and drinking out of other people’s water glasses, as that all falls under the “food” category. So basically, other than food, they also like: cardboard (includes cardboard boxes), Q-tips (though they get old quickly), and music. 

Both of them do really dig music. Oscar even loves to dance and wail.

I love when cats decide they love something.

That is a very patient bunny.

I wish my cats liked anything other than me and food. See next post for a transcript of a little conversation I just had with my cats.

… And that wherever they might be they always remember that the past was a lie, that memory has no return, that every spring gone by could never be recovered, and that the wildest and most tenacious love was an ephemeral truth in the end.

One Hundred Years of Solitude, Gabriel García Márquez (via fuckyeahexistentialism)

His soul is missed among our mourning, drifting material frames.

  • The original title of the film was “The Loners”.
  • For the famous soliloquy that Fonda does in the cemetery while heavily tripping on acid, Dennis asked Peter to talk to the statue as if he were talking to his mother, who had committed suicide when Peter was 10 years old. Peter didn’t want to do it, as he had never confronted his feelings about his mother but Hopper insisted, which is why you hear Peter call the statue “Mother”, as he states that he both loves her and hates her, which expressed his conflicted emotions. This scene persuaded Bob Dylan to allow the use of his song “It’s Alright Ma” in one of the final scenes, which contains lyrics referencing suicide. Peter told Dylan, “I need to hear those words”, and he agreed to its use.
  • During Jack’s ”UFO” speech, Dennis was intent on getting him very stoned. The laughing that eventually broke up his speech was not planned, and when Jack repeats the line “it … it … would be devastating … ” was the next take.
  • Peter’s chopper was so wobbly to ride that at one point Jack  squeezed his knees on Fonda’s side to balance himself and broke one of Fonda’s ribs.
  • Dennis and Peter did not write a full script for the movie and made most of it up as they went along. They didn’t hire a crew but instead picked up hippies at communes across the country, and used friends and passersby to hold the cameras who were drunk and stoned most of the time.
  • The rednecks in the Louisiana coffee shop who taunt the boys, and the two in the pickup truck at the end of the movie, were all local residents recruited by the filmmakers. In the case of the coffee shop denizens, the filmmakers were preparing to audition a group of local theater people when Dennis saw Buddy Causey Jr., Duffy Lafontand several others watching them and making wisecracks and decided to use them instead.
