burial

On a day of burial there is no perspective -- for space itself is annihilated. Your dead friend is still a fragmentary being. The day you bury him is a day of chores and crowds, of hands false or true to be shaken, of the immediate cares of mourning. The dead friend will not really die until tomorrow, when silence is round you again. Then he will show himself complete, as he was -- to tear himself away, as he was, from the substantial you. Only then will you cry out because of him who is leaving and whom you cannot detain.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

[first lines]


[opening monologue]



Ash:
My name is Ash and I am a slave. As far as I can figure, the year is thirteen hundred A.D and I'm being dragged to my death. It wasn't always like this, I had a real life, once. A job



Ash:
[now Ash is in a flashback] Umm... Hardware aisle twelve, shop smart, shop S-Mart!



Ash:
[back to monologue] I had a wonderful girlfriend Linda. Together we drove to a small cabin in the mountains. t seems an archeologist had come to this remote place to translate and study his latest find: Necronomiconexmortis. The Book of the Dead. Bound in human flesh and inked in blood, this ancient Samarian text contained bizarre burial rights, funeral incantations, and demon resurrection passages, it was never meant for the world of the living. The book awoke something dark in the woods, something evil.


[something crashes through the window of the cabin and Linda screams]



Ash:
It took Linda. Then it came after me, it got into my hand and it went bad, so I lopped it off at the wrist.


[Ash is seen cutting off his hand]



Ash:
But that didn't stop it, it came back big time.



Ash:
[Ash gets pulled into the vortex holding onto the doorway] For God's sake how do you stop it?

Brodie:
You have my Punisher War Journal #6, my copy of "Fletch" and the remote control to my TV. Now, I know it's going to be hard to give this stuff up because of it's sentimental attachment...



Rene:
Sentimental attachment? Look, if I have any of that crap it's because you brought it over my house and left it there.



Brodie:
Okay, then let's talk about coming up with a schedule for visitation rights.



Rene:
For what?



Brodie:
For the mall. I figure you can take the odd days, I'll take the even days and weekends. When there's any special feature like a sidewalk sale...



Rene:
[interrupting] Brodie, Brodie...



Brodie:
...or a boat show...



Rene:
[interrupting] Brodie! I've always taken you with a grain of salt. On your birthday, when you told me to do a striptease to the theme of "Mighty Mouse", I said okay. On prom night at the hotel when you told me to sleep under the bed in case your mother burst in, I did it. And even during my grandmother's funeral when you told my relatives that you could see her nipples through her burial dress, I let that slide.



Rene:
[Grabs Brodie by the ear] But if you think I'm gonna suffer any of your shit with a smile now that we're broken up, you're in for some serious fucking disappointment!

June Mulcahey:
No.



Joe Nast:
Well, you know, it was kind of a deal, the whole thing. The clean-up alone took days. You'd be amazed at what a mess a high-caliber weapon can make, an in a restaurant, all those little pieces of - all of - well anyway, let's just say it was pretty time-consuming. Then you got the whole burial to deal with. This whole coffin business - much more complicated than people think. Standard sizes? Dream on! Had to custom-fit the whole deal. Had a tailor come out, do her size right then and there. Do you know how hard it is to have a tailor come out to do house calls? And on a school night? I mean


[laughs]



Joe Nast:
this is pulling teeth, you know what I'm saying? And then, you know, of course you got the house to deal with, and that's a whole other ordeal, you know? Cause who wants her stuff around, right? I mean, that's a valuable room, why waste it? So, you slog through that and, yeah, next thing you know a couple of weeks have gone by and your thinking to yourself "man oh man, am I still tied up with all this? Where did the time go?"
