Is This Real?

I don't even know what the hell this is.

Steely Dan -- the band, yeah, they've got a blog -- write an open letter to Luke Wilson, accusing his brother, Owen "The Butterscotch Stallion" Wilson, of stealing the idea for the new movie You Me and Dupree from their song "Cousin Dupree."

It is written in the chattiest, long-windiest, bong-resin-smelliest sort of rambling way it takes forever to get to the accusation. I'm not even sure, exactly, what the accusation is, or if they're serious.

Weird, wild stuff.

Thanks to yls.

Viral Marketing? When the Morgellon's Disease hallucination was going around the Internet, Steven den Beste suggested it was viral marketing for A Scanner Darkly. I didn't buy that, because too many people seemed in on the conspiracy, and I had trouble believing that Hollywood would stoop so low as to create a public-health scare to pimp a movie.

And I saw the movie (which is an advantage den Beste didn't have at the time) and it's not about Morgellon's Disease, or anything faintly resembling Morgellon's Disease. In fact, it's not about anything at all. I can't even bring myself to write a review, except to maybe say: Shit sandwich.

Anyway, it seems Steely Dan and Luke Wilson know each other, so perhaps the brothers Wilson and Dan and Walt cooked up this goofy scheme while getting really, really, really fucking high.

Because they'd have to be. It's too stupid to possibly be anything but genuinely, stupidly on the level.

But... still. There is that question. Have I been chumped as badly as one of Glenn Greenwald's cultists?
