You're twisting my melon, man  
If you've never heard me wax fantastic about 24 Hour Party People, I suppose you can consider yourself fortunate. I have a tendency to go on and on about a film I happened to love. This was true for Donnie Darko, as well as Ghost in the Shell, and the list goes on and on.

One day, I'd like the see the actual documentary about Factory Records--which will probably server only as fuel for my fire about the aforementioned movie. No doubt, I will never find the documentary anywhere--though BBC America has surprised me with a couple of showing of Withnail and I. Ride sampled some dialogue from that film for their Going Blank Again. The quote was, "Even a stopped clock gives the right time twice a day."

That, and the Beloved's "Everything starts with an E" lyric used to be part of my profile for a long while.

So, a long cut to get to my Happy Mondays reference in my subject line. This is how my mind associates things, and people often wonder how I can leap from one topic of conversation to a completely unrelated one within moments.

You're twisting my melon, man, indeed.

P.S. A nice surprise, I don't have to work this Saturday, only this Sunday. I've had two weekends in a row off from the hospital, and it's going to be extremely difficult to get through my shift on Sunday, I'm sure.
