"I was feeling all lousy on a Sunday morning, having stayed up all night cos my dumb upstairs neighbor had decided to listen to his entire record collection at full volume, thus keeping me awake. I was having daydreams about running upstairs to puke into his mailbox, but then my housemate knocked on my door and asked to come in. He said he'd downloaded the Basquiat documentary and that I'd be most welcome to his side of the house to watch it while sharing some excellent pot. How could I decline "
