Vampires suck the blood of Hudson crocodiles Wolfmen takes their mummies out to gaze upon the Nile Swamp things swoon to zydeco Frankenstein will be fine - just another ounce of blow... It came from outer space to bullshit with the Blob Freddy's getting manicured and looking for a job Norman Bates went out to Kiki & Herb tonight Bigfoot climbed down into town for soft-serve at the Dairy De-Lite...

Mark David Chapman is on 20/20. So is Jay Leno, he's not very funny. Mark David's locked up in Attica prison. Jay's going to miss making fun of Bill Clinton. Mark David tells Yoko Ono he's sorry and statewide recounts must begin in a hurry. Barbara Walters looks tense but not worried. Jay doesn't seem to care if it's Bush or Gore, he'd prefer Clinton again -- Clinton's the funny and cool guy, he says. Barbara chuckles and shakes her head. When Mark David shot John Lennon he was assisted by Satan. Now he's a born-again Christian. He thought that John had become superficial and phony, that he'd been ruined by all of his comfort and money. Barbara's narration fills up the gaps in the story, and statewide recounts must begin in a hurry. Barbara looks tense but not worried. "John Lennon would be 40 years old if he were alive today," Barbara says, her head cocked to the side, "imagine." "John Lennon would be 40 years old if he were alive today," Barbara says, her head cocked to the side, "imagine." Credits roll, 20/20 it ends.

I saw your mom at the party after Esther Kahn she was just sort of standing around I met your sister Summer well actually, I just kind of said hi I told her she was great in the film she said thanks and smiled (she seemed really nice) River Phoenix forget the metaphors I wonder what you would have thought of your brother Joaquin in Gladiator I thought that he was really good and that the movie was okay you know, I felt the same way about you and Little Nikita, in 1988 Your mom looked so much like you like you both had the same eyes I wanted to give her a hug and ask for girlfriend advice Michael Stipe was at the party and so was Gus Van Sant someone said that Summer was dating Casey Affleck I said "at least she's not with Ben" River Phoenix if you were still alive would you hang out with them-- Casey Matt Damon Gwyneth and Ben? Would you still be with Samantha Mathis? like Johnny Depp, with kids and wife? Would you always be superfamous? or maybe someday could you be a regular guy? River Phoenix I used to like drugs too in fact, I kind of still do but I couldn't afford the ones that you used The fansite talks like you are an angel at times even like you are Jesus why don't you come on down and see us? show us that you still need us fans.
