Did you catch the Pale Fire references (and quoted lines) in Blade Runner 2049?

Cells interlinked within cells interlinked
Within one stem. And, dreadfully distinct
Against the dark, a tall white fountain played.

Haven't seen it. Waiting for the traditional eighth Director's Cut.

Somewhere a while back (Salon maybe) I saw a piece comparing Ryan Gosling character in 2049 to John Shade,  will post if I find.

Time to reread Pale Fire, the unofficial Book Mascot of the old NYT Meander.

I have no real ada to reread Pale Fire.

California Dreaming....

I found a boat that I am going to buy after I make my movie "Echo, A Rock and Roll Tragedy."

It is a 100 foot Benetti which was designed by Versace.

Link...

And I am going to build a stage on my boat for my friends who have bands, my friend Jon and his girlfriend Susan will have a luxury suite on my boat, and Jon can decide where he wants the stage, etc. And they will be able to record their music, and plus we can shoot video, etc.

And I am going to set it up so that we can eat good. I want to be able to barbecue filet mignon, and I want to be able to make fish tacos, etc, we need to be able to eat good.

And I want all young hot women to be my captain and crew, my whole crew is going to be young hot chicks.

We could park it here in California in a million places, or we can go down and cruise it down the Amazon River, we could go check out Colombia and stuff, or we could cruise it around the Mediterranean Sea, we could go to Cannes, Monaco, Capri, Greece, Cyprus, etc, we could go a lot of places.

And I could make my boat pay for itself by shooting video for PBS, or for some channel on television, we could cruise down the Amazon and shoot video of the experience, etc.

And plus I will have a vineyard and winery in Italy, a night club in Rome, a movie production company at Cinecitta, etc, which will all help me to make money. And I will have a recording studio for my friends.

And I will date Mahlagha Jaberi, she is a 30 year old model from Iran who lives in San Diego, California.

Here is her Instagram page...

https://www.instagram.com/MAHLAGHAJABERI/

Plus, I want to buy a helicopter to fly from the winery to the movie studio in Italy.

And I want to buy the house where I lived in Malibu.

And I want to have at least one child. If it is a boy I want to name him Aldo Augustus Verley, and if it is a girl I want to name her Grace Nicole Verley.

And I want to publish my poetry book. I might also write some more books. And my future wife might want to write books too, so I can help her to publish her books. I could help my wife to produce her own television show, or whatever she wants, she can make her own films, etc. She could have her own brand of perfume, whatever.

There is a lot of cool stuff that can happen if I get my movie made and if it is a success.

Salute,

Tony V.
