Sorry I'm such a link-a-holic today, but this is too good not to pass along. World of Wonder has what it claims is a transcript of a telephone conversation between Michael "Party Monster" Alig and his old pal James St. James. Alig is currently in prison for murdering a fellow NYC party scenester named "Angel" (see earlier post with my review of "Party Monster: The Shockumentary" for more details). I don't know or care if this transcript is real or not; it's hysterically funny and totally interesting. If it IS fake, the author(s) did an excellent job of recreating the nuances and cadence of Alig/ St. James' speech patterns. On the one hand it seems like an awful lot of trouble to go to for a joke; on the other hand, Alig compares the prison weight-room to The Roxy and The Palladium, where he says there are "like, all these topless, shirtless, muscled, tattooed, Puerto Ricans…All sweaty and glistening…And then they’re listening to Sylvester!" Who knows?
