    I’ll take three. Oh, and throw in a few vats of that milk blood stuff and a Verizon 20-year contract while you’re at it.

    Super. Thanks.

    The “David site” goes into such detail about how capable he is of recognizing the emotions of others…I’m awaiting a tedious response from the Asperger’s lobby.

    I am awaiting David Bowie to show up and ask Fox to pay him some likeness rights! Also, seriously, if androids are ever part of fucking TWO YEAR CONTRACTS, then I will settle on the pay as you go Androids. Sure they won’t be as flashy but if they try to kill me or mine, or decide to chase people around town in the nude. I can just sell it used on Amazon and get a slightly newer model without being beholden to freaking Verizon or ATT and their damn flashy Androids and GOD DAMN TWO YEAR CONTRACTS!

The next thing that really changed my world and thoroughly influenced my writing were the films of Robert Bresson. When I discovered them in the late seventies, I felt I had found the final ingredient I needed to write the fiction I wanted to write.

What was the final ingredient?

DENNIS COOPER

Recognizing that the films were entirely about emotion and, to me, ­ profoundly moving while, at the same time, stylistically inexpressive and monotonic. On the surface, they were nothing but style, and the style was extremely rigorous to boot, but they seemed almost transparent and purely content driven. Bresson’s use of untrained nonactors influenced my concentration on characters who are amateurs or noncharacters or characters who are ill equipped to handle the job of manning a story line or holding the reader’s attention in a conventional way. Altogether, I think Bresson’s films had the greatest influence on my work of any art I’ve ever encountered. In fact, the first fiction of mine that was ever published was a chapbook called “Antoine Monnier,” which was a god-awful, incompetent attempt to rewrite Bresson’s film Le diable ­probablement as a pornographic novella. So I came to writing novels through a channel that included experimental fiction, poetry, and nonliterary influences pretty much exclusively. I never read normal novels with any real interest or close attention.
