A Farewell to Pellets
A Farewell to Pellets
A short story I wrote when I was 21: The boardroom was full of noise. The beehive-hum of voices and rustling paper ended when the Chief opened the door and took his seat. “What’s on the menu?” he boomed from the head of the table. “Just came in on the horn, boss.” The small assistant hockey-pucked a stack of photographs across the table “Looks like the four of them busted out of the big-house just a few minutes ago.” “Jesus, Callahan! We collared those jokers this morning!” “They’re professionals, you know that as well as anyone here.” Peeped the assistant. “I know how long I’ve been here, Callahan! Gimme a break!” The Chief flopped his great yellow bottom into his chair, threw an elbow on the table, and nestled his gigantic chin onto the palm of his hand. He lit a cigarette. “I’m supposed to retire tomorrow! God!” One of the higher ups, a great sphere adorned with various medals and accolades, pulled his eyes away from the photographs to address the chief. “Look Man, we appreciate all the work you’ve put in around here these last few years. But you know these four psychos have always been our number one threat, and by some cruel twist of fate, you are the only one who can catch them.” “No way, not this time.” Puffed the chief. “You bring them in, I turned in my badge this morning.” “Please, Man.” “And miss my own retirement party?! Tapper RSVP’d, The Paddles RSVP’d. You think I’m going to miss them? With all due respect, go fuck yourself, sir.” He snubbed the cigarette into his ashtray and floated towards the door. His exit was interrupted: “They’ve got a hostage, Man.” “A what?” “You heard me.” “Who’ve they got?” “It’s the bananas.” “Jesus! I’ve told those bananas to stay outta that neighborhood a million times! It serves them right!” “Please, Man.” Pleaded the higher-up “Just one last time?” The room was still and silent. The chief pulled a second cigarette to his massive yellow lips and spun around. “If I miss this party tonight … ” he struck a match. “Jesus.” He left his final thought incomplete, hanging in the office like the trails of smoke that poured from his bowling ball body. He sped down the highway throwing curse after curse into the stale air that filled his El Camino. He was aware of his own stink, of the sweat that bon voyaged out of his armpits as he filled with anticipation. He could not believe that on this night, the day before his retirement, he was still excited to go after the same four villains that he brought down on his first major case. His mind poured over all of their previous encounters, over all of the hostages; the cherries, the oranges, the strawberries, that they had taken as their victims. He looked at the frayed Polaroid of the Misses that blanketed the speedometer, the photograph looked back at him with the same look he’d seen time and time again. This time, he thought, this time they’re not getting away. He mouthed the word “Retri-fucking-bution.” Arriving in the Blue Light district, he parked his El Camino and stood at the entrance of the city’s fearsome ghetto. The streets twisted wildly into a maze, littered with drugs. In the distance, he could hear the hostage scream. “They’re peeling me! Help!” “I’m coming for you! Hold on!” he screamed. As he made his way into the disgusting flotsam that covered the alleyways, he went to work. With each step he shoveled the drugs and garbage into his eager mouth, chewing it into a glorious pulp of wrongdoings redeemed. With each step he devoured more and more of the crime that permeated from the ghetto. A maniacal laugh broke his stride. “Well well, Man. Looks like this is it?” “Blinky.” Sneered the Chief. Blinky and his right hand man Clyde floated out of the shadows at the end of the alleyway. “Don’t forget me, Chief. What with you retiring and all, I wouldn’t miss this for the world!” “Pinky,” began the Chief “looks like you’re just in time . . . for your funeral!” Just then, a slice of banana peel smacked Chief Man directly between his vacuous black eyeballs. The slap of the peel was accompanied by a hideous cackle that echoed throughout the streets. Man vomited at the sight of the hostages absent flesh. “Let the banana go! This just between you and me. He doesn’t belong out here!” “You don’t get it, do you, Man?” began the cackling voice “He’s already dead.” The leader of the gang, Inky, made his way towards the rest of his cohorts. “We killed him, Man.” Inky eyed the rest of his gang as they sneered viciously at the officer. “Killed him just like we’re kill that pretty little wife of yours.” “YOU SON OF A BITCH!” Man sprinted towards the gang, chomping and chewing the wreckage that covered the avenues of the twisted district. “After him!” Called out Inky, sparking the gang to zip into action. Pac Man had danced this dance a million times before, he
Heath Ledger The Dark Knight (Christopher Nolan,2008)
Heath Ledger The Dark Knight (Christopher Nolan,2008)
Heath Ledger obituary: An actor of promise Heath Ledger, who has died aged 28, was one of the most promising actors of his generation, best known for his sensitive performance as one of two cowboys who embark on a homosexual relationship in Ang Lee’s film Brokeback Mountain (2005). Ledger was Ennis Del Mar to Jake Gyllenhaal’s Jack Twist, two ranch-hands who meet in Wyoming in the early 1960s. They are thrown together looking after sheep in a remote mountain range, and fall in love. When the job comes to an end, they resume life in the outside world, both marrying and having children. Four years later they meet again, and the relationship is rekindled. Given the theme, making the film at all was considered a commercial risk, but Ang Lee had no doubts. And he had no doubts about Ledger’s suitablility for the part of the taciturn Del Mar: "He’s the person that’s the best to carry that western brooding mood - elegiac and fearful and violent, all the complexities, all the poetic qualities." Ledger himself was unsure if he should take the role, but concluded: "I didn’t feel like I had a career to risk." In the event, critics and audiences alike were delighted, particularly by Ledger’s performance. Even E Annie Proulx - on whose short story the film was based - remarked: "How did this actor get inside my head so well? He understood more about the character than I did." The picture won four Golden Globes (including for best dramatic film and best director) and was nominated for eight Oscars, of which it won three (best director, best adapted screenplay and best score). Ledger, nominated for best actor, lost out to Philip Seymour Hoffman for Capote. A young man of considerable charm and refreshing modesty, Ledger thought deeply about his craft and set himself high standards which he sometimes feared he was incapable of achieving. "I don’t really like to do the same thing twice," he said in 2005. "I like to do something I fear. I like to set up obstacles and defeat them." Heathcliff Andrew Ledger was born in Australia on April 4 1979, the son of Kim Ledger, a mining engineer, and his wife Sally, who taught French. His first name was a tribute to Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, as was that of his older sister, Katherine. He was educated privately at Guildford Grammar School, in Perth, Western Australia. His parents divorced when he was 11. While still a boy Heath joined a local theatre club and was soon appearing in children’s television shows. In 1992 he was cast in a film, Clowning Around, and the next year was seen in a television series, Ship to Shore. At the same time he showed promise in other areas, as a junior go-kart racing champion and, aged only 10, as Western Australia’s junior chess champion; he also represented Western Australia at hockey. Acting, however, was the course he chose to follow. When he was 16, Heath made his way to Sydney, where he was cast as a gay cyclist in a television series called Sweat. He also appeared briefly in the soap opera Home and Away. After another TV series, in which he played a Celtic warrior, he resolved to try his luck in Hollywood. "I went over there," he later recalled, "with no expectations and all the confidence of youth." He was soon back in Australia, however, to play a strip-joint bouncer in a film called Two Hands, for which the Australian Film Institute nominated him for a best actor award. In 1999 Ledger appeared in 10 Things I Hate About You, with Julia Stiles. Although essentially a lightweight, teen romance, critics were impressed by his performance, and Ledger found himself offered a succession of similar parts, a development that he did not welcome. For a year he accepted no work, and was reduced to borrowing money from his agent to survive; for much of the time, he claimed, he lived on "noodles and water". "I’m happy without money," he told one interviewer. "I never did have it, so that was no big deal. And it was fun saying No - because they really don’t like to hear that word in Hollywood." In 2000, however, Ledger’s career suddenly prospered again when he was offered in a part in The Patriot, the film about the American Revolution starring Mel Gibson. Ledger, cast as Gibson’s son, delighted the critics, one of whom described him as "smouldering on screen". In A Knight’s Tale (2001) he played a squire who disguises himself as a nobleman in order to participate in jousting tournaments. If the film itself was somewhat inconsequential, Ledger again won praise - and now he began to have misgivings about his increasing celebrity, misgivings which were never entirely erased. After another TV series, in which he played a Celtic warrior, he resolved to try his luck in Hollywood. "I went over there," he later recalled, "with no expectations and all the confidence of youth." He was soon back in Australia, how
