Phone Interview With
PA: I didn't know
she was an intern, I thought she was Hillary. That's all I have to say.
I thought she was Hillary. It was dark and I thought she was Hillary.
That's all I've got to say. It was very dark and her hair is a lot like
FZ: She looks like
Paula Jones too...
PA: No, Paula Jones is so
ugly she makes Celine Dion look
attractive. Paula Jones is a dog no matter what they do to her teeth. I
mean it's frightening, Paula Jones. I mean if this is what he was
reduced to as the governor of Arkansas, we all feel sorry for him.
FZ: Well he turned her
down, that's what the deal was. That's why she's pissed off.
PA: Oh OK, that's what it
FZ: He must have said
something like what you did when they brought her in.
PA: Something to the effect
like, "Whoof, that woman is ugly! Yikes!"
FZ: You're all meeting with
PA: Yes. There's about 30
pages of script done. We're in kind of a typical period of insane
assessment about the project so it will be interesting to hear what
everybody thinks it's about. Ha, ha, ha. That's been one of the things.
Right now the discussion that's ongoing now is whether the title of the
album should be "Unconscious Village". That's the latest controversy
swirling. And I have a feeling it will probably all be resolved
FZ: "The Mark Of Bozo" is
PA: "The Mark Of Bozo" is
long gone. That's months old. Ha. That's old, old, old news. Things come
and things go. They come, they go. It's really true. It's part of the
process of doing this. It's like sometimes the title of anything is a
long process. At a certain point it sort of appears. We're late in the
game now and all the various choices like that have not survived. The
current one is "Unconscious Village". And whether it will survive the
weekend, I'm not real sure. But right now I think it will because we are
officially dealing with the record company as of today. But what do I
know, everything could change over night.
FZ: We read another title
in Planet Proctor, "Give Me Immortality or Give Me Death".
PA: Yes, that's what was
just bypassed. That's like slowly fading over the horizon. Although I
believe Proctor is still hanging on for dear life.
FZ: From what you were
telling me before, it seems you never really liked "Mark Of Bozo"
PA: No, I never really
FZ: It seems like in the
beginning you guys started out with a title and then had to come up with
PA: Well, it all depends on
who you talk to. That's the thing, you are reaching out and wondering
which part of the elephant you're feeling, when you talk to any one of
us, even probably especially this conversation.
FZ: I usually get the bad
part of the elephant when I put my hand out.
PA: Anal elephant parts.
Yeah, the album certainly begins and is sort of surrounded by
Unconscious Village. So right now that's beginning to be, ah, right now
it's the title but you know, let's see what happens. Saturday would be
interesting to see what everybody's saying.
FZ: I don't mean to pry,
but are you going to be using the commercials that you made before?
PA: Maybe one of them and
only one. We might wind up using the voice tracks from the original
"Unconscious Village". We'll probably wind up using the voice tracks
from the USPlus ad, but we're going to have to do new backgrounds,
instead of everything else. Even then I can't really say. All I know, as
pieces of writing, those two pieces have now gone on and expanded way
beyond their original selves. USPlus actually exists and is an actual
thing and Unconscious Village is now broadened out into something where
it is much deeper than what it started out to be.
FZ: Does any of the
"Sonoran Desert Doings" material kind of tie in with the album.
PA: Well.... Ray and Hal,
Ray Amberjer and Hal Hiphugger show up and are inhabiting the album now
for sure. There's not been an appearance of anyone else from there,
although the fact that we're dealing with the millennium and the end of
the world and the last day of the 20th century is what this album, where
it takes place, means that we're slowly approaching... well all I can
say is, "Watch out for the guys in the eyeball hats!" That's all I have
to say about that subject. Watch out for the guys in the eyeball
