Out of the closets and into the museums, libraries, architectural monuments, concert halls, bookstores, recording studios and film studios of the world.

Bill: As you know, l'm quite keen on comic books. Especially the ones about superheroes. I find the whole mythology surrounding superheroes fascinating. Take my favorite superhero, Superman. Not a great comic book. Not particularly well-drawn. But the mythology... The mythology is not only great, it's unique. Now, a staple of the superhero mythology is, there's the superhero and there's the alter ego. Batman is actually Bruce Wayne, Spider-Man is actually Peter Parker. When that character wakes up in the morning, he's Peter Parker. He has to put on a costume to become Spider-Man. And it is in that characteristic Superman stands alone. Superman didn't become Superman. Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he's Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red "S", that's the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears - the glasses, the business suit - that's the costume. That's the costume Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent. He's weak... he's unsure of himself... he's a coward. Clark Kent is Superman's critique on the whole human race. Sorta like Beatrix Kiddo and Mrs. Tommy Plimpton.
The Bride: Aso. The point Emerges.
Bill: You would've worn the costume of Arlene Plimpton. But you were born Beatrix Kiddo. And every morning when you woke up, you'd still be Beatrix Kiddo. Oh, you can take the needle out.
The Bride: Are you calling me a superhero?
Bill: I'm calling you a killer. A natural born killer. You always have been, and you always will be. Moving to El Paso, working in a used record store, goin' to the movies with Tommy, clipping coupons. That's you, trying to disguise yourself as a worker bee That's you tryin' to blend in with the hive. But you're not a worker bee. You're a renegade killer bee. And no matter how much beer you drank or barbecue you ate or how fat your ass got, nothing in the world would ever change that.More [05/29/2008 12:05:00]

Narrator:
He, the Geshe, carried out the Lossum Chossum meditation, which lasts for three years, three months, and three days. During this time noone spoke to him or even saw him close up. - This severe asceticism is necessary in order to destoy the ego, because our consciousness identifies with the needs of the body. And it is the ego which is behind these bodily needs. It traps consciousness in a fixation on one's own isolated individuality. Asceticism, however, makes it possible for consciousness to free itself from these material chaines and thereby liberate the ego, just as in death.

Narrator:
Buddha says that man's original essence and goal is awakened through the spiritual life, therefore - despite the pain that everyone feels at the loss of a loved one - death is not something to be repressed and forgotten. Our material, bodily presence on Earth is to be used to become aware of this spiritual world and be one with it, therby destroying the power of the ego and the fear of death. The Black-Hat-Dancer performs in order to defend these teachings.

Bob Chinn:
By 1979, it was difficult for John to maintain an erection when he done so much cocaine. To require him to get erect would take a lot of time and a lot of patience. But I didn't have the time, the patience, or the budget to deal with that. One day during the filming of Taxi Girls, I caught John snorting cocaine on the set after I told him again and again, "do not bring drugs onto the set." I took the stash away from him and flushed it down a toilet. John exclaimed at why I just did that for that for he just bought that stash and he paid $1,500 for it. For the first time ever, I yelled at John saying, "John, you can't keep doing this!" Immediately, John became very petulant. He wouldn't work, costing me a lot of time and money. When I persuaded him to return to work, John's ego took over and he began copping an attitude to me saying things like, "you don't tell me that to do! I'm the star! You need me! You can't make this movie without me!" A little later when John calmed down a bit, he asked me if he could borrow some money, saying he was broke and that he'll pay me back as soon as he could. In my opinion, it was to buy more drugs for himself. Incredulous, I yelled, "John I haven't even paid you yet! Why don't you just finish the movie, get your paycheck, and do whatever you want!" My outburst seemed to work as John managed to return to filming, finished the movie, got his paycheck and left. But after that, I just couldn't work with John anymore. It got too difficult.
