"[My relationships were] like I was in these movies where the script was only half-written. When I’d get to the end of this half-script, the other actors wanted me to ad lib. But I had never gotten the hang of that. That’s why these movies were always box-office failures. Six of them in the past twenty years. I always blew the lines." ~ from my horrible first novel "Learn How To Pretend." (unpublished)(obviously)

What I Wish

Sunset Boulevard, by Charlie Robison 

Well, I wish I had my picture on The Rolling Stone today I wish that The Enquirer spread a rumor that I was gay  

Well, I wish I had some buddies, some movie stars and such 'Cause I probably wouldn't worry about the two of us as much
 
And I'd spend all my money on caviar and cocaine And I would not remember how you broke my heart today
 

You know I, I wish I had a super model so skinny and so wild And a waitress in Nevada, she says she's carrying my child  

Well I'd drive down Sunset Boulevard, my hair blowin' in the wind And I'd stop at fancy restaurants and they'd finally let me in
 

And I'd spend all my money on caviar and cocaine And I would not remember how you broke my heart today
 

Yeah, I wish I had my picture with the Rolling Stones today And I wish The Enquirer would spread a rumor that I was gay I wish I knew a movie star, someone like Charlie Sheen 'Cause if he'd hang out with Kato Kaelin well I guess he'd hang out with me
 

And I'd spend all my money on caviar and Rogaine And I would not remember how you broke my heart today
