  1. Whilst I was in DMV today, I was reminded, in a freakish, chilling way, of the Terry Gillian movie Brazil.

    You know, the 1985 dystopian black comedy with Robert De Niro as a rogue air conditioner repair guy who pops up from time to time. One of his less celebrated roles, certainly.

    I started humming the song "Watercolor of Brazil" which they use in that movie. With the bassoon lines and all.

    I'm glad that the world we live isn't like that. I'd be tempted to do like Les Claypool suggest...

    Anyone else have similar feeling about either (DMV, the movie, or the song DMV by Primus?)

    I just got back from the DMV for the second time this week...I've never been able to walk in there get everything done right and walk out...I always either have to leave and come back later, or get charged extra, or am missing 75 forms of ID...and the people that work there are miserable and broken and live to make you feel similar

    I've been to hell. I spell it...
    I spell it DMV
    Anyone that's been there
    knows precisely what I mean
    Stood there and I've waited
    and choked back the urge to scream
    And if I had my druthers
    I'd screw a chimpanzee

    call it pointless

    When I need relief I spell it THC
    Perhaps you may know vaguely what I mean
    I sit back and smoke away
    huge chunks of memory
    As I slowly inflict upon
    myself a full lobotomy

    call it pointless

    Barbecues, tea kettles, gobs of axle grease
    There comes a time for every man
    To sail the seas of cheese
    Now, life's a bowl of bagel dogs,
    but there are unpleasantries
    Cold toilet seats, dentist chairs
    and trips to DMV

    call it pointless

    I've been to hell. I spell it...
    I spell it DMV
    Anyone that's been there knows
    precisely what I mean
    I've stood in line and waited
    near an hour and fifteen
    And if I had my druthers
    I'd screw that chimpanzee

    call it pointless

    Yep, sums it up.
  7. Brazil's a great flick. If you get the chance to see it in the theater on the big screen rather than from a DVD, I suggest you do so.

    I was able to renew my drivers license online recently, so I haven't been to the DMV in 10 or so years.

    BTW, Thanks for the Movie suggestion. I like Gilliam a lot (12 Monkeys, Fear and Loathing..., Monty Python of course). That movie just made it to the top of my must see list.

    This thread also reminded me of the Primus song.
