Here's to the vagaries of memory

Beavis and Butthead are NOT real. They’re stupid cartoon people completely made up by this Texas guy who we hardly even know.

Beavis and Butthead are dumb, crude, thoughtless, ugly, sexist, self destructive fools.

But for some reason, the little weinerheads make us laugh.

Yes, that’s word for word, Is is Live or is it Memory(ex)? from the disclaimer that aired before every episode of Beavis and Butthead, back when MTV actually paid attention to the Music and the Video part. Why do I remember that word for word, and can replay even the pacing and timbre of the speech in my head?

I do not know.

I do know that the little weinerheads still make me laugh.

On the subject of memory… I posted updates to my ongoing script, Deaf Boy, which continues to be a struggle of determining how I can dramatize my own memories honestly.  I think it’s about 65% bogus right now, and if you’ve known me at all, you’ll know the parts that are the most real are probably the parts that sound the most ridiculous. However, I don’t know how anyone could possibly write an accurate biography because you’re always viewing your own past through the Coke Bottle glasses of time. There may be some distortion of reality in there. In any cases, click on the link above or click on mcspoo Creative under the Blogroll links. Drop me a line and let me know what you think so far.
