A Brilliant Idea

During one of our long, rambling conversations that we have to pass the time on the desert highways, we came up with a great idea on the bus. It’s an idea for a movie.

The movie would star Robert Dinero and it would be about a man’s search for a relationship with his estranged, emotionally distant father. The thing is, Robert Dinero would play son. The role of the father would be played by Michael Cera. That might sound weird, but it actually makes a lot of sense when you consider that the film would be a sequel to Juno. Ellen Page would probably be more interested in doing other projects however, so her role would be filled by Andy Samberg (of Lonely Island fame). Or as she would be credited, “Andrea Samberg.”

The film will be called “Father and Son: Hopefully Reconnecting by the End of the Movie.” It’s a brilliant movie idea, and anyone who wants to fund it should not hesitate to do so.

Things in the works

Greetings from Albuquerque, NM, the hardest place in the country to spell!

This is just a quick update on a few going-ons with the tour. Yesterday we got a plug on the twitter feed, so a big thank you goes out to them. If any of you were directed here from there, welcome. Enjoy clicking around, and if you want the Juan Way Tour to stop by your place (and you’re in the south west or on the west coast), click on the “Help Us” link at the bottom right corner of the page.

We’ve also contacted BoingBoing and Child’s Play about what we’re doing, so hopefully they’ll be in touch with us soon. And who knows, maybe somebody who frequents one of those sites will know how we can get in touch with Gary Oldman.

Another thing that we’re going to be doing soon is driving the Desert Bus route from the Penn and Teller mini-game (that’s actually the main reason we’re getting in touch with Child’s Play). For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, you can go here, but it’s basically an eight hour drive from Tuscon, AZ to Las Vegas NV.

We’ll upload some more video and photos soon. Until then, take it easy.

Our Pot

So, we lost our pot.

It cost us a lot of money, and we’re afraid that we just left it in a parking lot somewhere. If it didn’t get thrown away, there’s probably someone else out there enjoying our pot right now. I guess we should be happy for them, but it’s still disappointing. We’d had that pot since Connecticut.

The really great thing about that pot was how it built community. When we’d pull into the dark corner of a Wal*Mart parking lot, one of us would grab the pot, and we’d all go lounge out in the cool shadows. We had quite a few conversations over that pot, and we were always excited to invite other people to come over and join us.

We loved that pot. Even when we’d go to a contacts house for the night, we’d still use our own pot. I mean, we can still enjoy our meals, but that pot made it so much better.

So, we got a new one.

PS. Stuff this good normally seems hard to come by, but we just brought it from a dude at Wal*Mart.
