Chris D.'s "Johnny Cool"

The film has a priceless cast, even though half of them were already dead in real life when this nocturnal dream thriller went into production. Fred Clark and another similar, unidentified character actor — maybe Frank Faylen? — play hucksters promoting rock concerts. I talk to them in between takes, sitting in the bleachers in a badly constructed approximation of the Inglewood Forum. Fred harrumphs, “Yeah, I’m great for the part. But this movie is a piece of shit!”

"Johnny Cool" - a vintage dream fragment from New Texture's forthcoming anthology by Chris D., A Minute to Pray, A Second to Die.
