Uch, I hate not having my phone to hand; drank too much last night and didn’t eat properly so ended up either leaving my phone in the pub or at Dave’s house or in the back of the cab. Too fogged by hangover to do anything about it today. But I’m delighed to see that ‘Westworld’ is on the telly tonight. Apart from having a secret and shameful liking for Michael Crichton novels/adaptations, I’ve wanted to see it for years. Ever since I heard the commendably crazy ‘Jo Jo’s Jacket’ on Steve Malkmus’s first solo LP, where he sings…
“I’m not what you think I am. I’m the king of Siam.
I’ve got a bald head, my name is Yul Brynner
And I am a famous movie star.
Perhaps you saw me in Westworld?
I acted like a robotic cowboy.
It was my best role, I can not deny I felt right home deep inside that electronic carcass”
…which I think would intrigue anyone.
