I don't know what to write about America

I am listening to an interview with Bret Easton Ellis.
He is American.
I haven't read anything by him.
I mostly read American literature.
I mostly listen to American music.
I mostly watch American television and films.
I mostly talk to Americans.

I live in New Zealand.
I made a chapbook.
I sent copies of it to America.
More Americans read my writing than New Zealanders.
What the fuck is going on?
Who am I?
Where am I?
Why am I here instead of there?
My rap name used to be Patriot.
That seems horrible to me now.
This is the first result for a google image search for patriot:

I watched Transformers 3 the other day.
It seemed very patriotic.
I laughed a lot watching it.
At least it was better than the second one.
What am I doing?
I don't know what I'm trying to say.
I spent a day and a half in New York.
I went to that island with the Statue of Liberty on it.
I went up the Empire State Building.
I went to some art gallery.
Bret Easton Ellis is talking about American Psycho.
I've seen that in bookstores in plastic wrapping because it's R18.
That's the only book I've ever seen like that.
I haven't even seen the movie.

I just found out there is a sequel to the movie.
I'm pretty sure there isn't a sequel to the book.
The interview with Bret Easton Ellis finished.
Another interview with him started playing.
I really like that movie American Beauty.
I don't really have anything to say about it though.
I just remembered that Sam Mendes isn't American.
I think that's right.
I didn't enjoy Jarhead much.
But I liked Away We Go a lot.
I think that's what it was called.
I haven't seen Revolutionary Road.
Even though I like Leonardo Dicaprio a lot.
I haven't read the book either.
I've read the Easter Parade.
At first I misspelt Easter and Eater.
This is probably going to be really boring for people to read.
Just a list of things that I have or haven't read or seen.
It's about time for another picture.

That was the first google image search result for picture.
I'm sorry for wasting your time


  1. Oh I forgot to say: USA USA USA USA USA USA

  2. I was born in AUS and I live in AUS but I have lived in America for 17 of my 40 years. Oh, I kinda forgot, I am American too. I have dual USA/AUS citizenship. Am I gonna get kicked out of the antipobros now?

    I have never seen or watched American Psycho but I used to love 21 Jump Street.
