#195 I Love Rock’n'Roll


Jeria has a recurring guest villain role on a series called “Shakespeare 2230.” She plays Calpurnia, who, as it turns out, was the mastermind behind the brutal slaying of Julius Cyborg. She is slightly better known for this role than for Theology Girl. Actually, the movie that’s put her most on the map is her first film, the Arctic Circle survival melodrama Northern Lights, but only because co-star Vèn Glowelhyn subsequently became famous while Jeria–most critics would agree–faded into obscurity.

Revisionist history! I changed the title of yesterday’s post. I decided that the theme for post-title page installments of “Lance and Eskimo Fall In Love” will be love songs. It shouldn’t be too hard to keep up, right? If I had even a little bit of a backlog, I could have made the change before the episode went up, but I don’t! I’m living hand to web!

JERIA: Are you two going to be OK while I’m in Vancouver?
(Caryn gives a thumbs-up as Robbie admires herself in Caryn’s jacket.)
JERIA: I’m serious. No staying up till midnight, no ice cream for dinner…
ROBBIE: I do that when you’re here.
CARYN: Robbie’s going to help me audition band members. Right?
ROBBIE AND CARYN (singing): I love rock ‘n roll! Put another dime in the jukebox baby! I said “Can I take you home to where we can be aloooooone”
JERIA (spying Lance and Eskimo walking by the window): Lance! Eskimo! How would you like to babysit this week?

    I hope Jeria comes into my place of business. What kind of music does she like? I know she has all those classic rock records but they were inherited, right?

    Jeria likes anything fast paced with a beat you can dance to..

    You did notice the title of this storyline, right?

    It’s going to be a lot of INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS for the foreseeable future. I guess I misled everyone by starting with PIRATE ACTION! (But that was very relationshippy, too, really.) Um… let’s see… Eskimo will perform some feats of derring-do in this storyline. Krys might punch someone. At some point, a vehicle will go rather fast. That’s… that’s really all I got.

    I’ll have to resort to drastic measures then. It won’t be as good as the story involving flying tanks, but I can only try.
