1987 was a general dud, but at
least our critics could name ten good

1987 came and went like a rank
zephyr from the garbage barge. Bon
Jovi and Tiffany? Harmonic
indulgence and moronic convergence?
Elvis necrophilia and Summer of
Scum nostalgia? Giorgio Armani tie-
dyed linen leisure suits and MTV
game shows? Mall music and the
Grateful Dead in the Top 10?
Any year in which the (Cocteau)
Twins win the World Series is one to
forget and forget quickly. At least the
new Aztec armageddon prediction is
for April 29, 1988; not soon enough
to miss finals, but before summer re-
runs. Get it over with already.

should live and what I should think.
And if he didn't like it...
"Hey! Hey!" I yelled at the top of
my lungs ,to anyone who might
hear. "This man is trying to take
away my rights! This man is trying
give me a set of values!"
Some woman walked by; I
grabbed her arm.
"Listen to what this man is
trying to do! He's trying to make
the University a totalitarian state!
We must join forces and stop him!"
"Rape! Rape!" she cried.
"Oh, God, never mind. Hey,
you!" I yelled across the street.
"Help me, please. There's big
trouble here. Our freedom of speech
is at stake here!"
The stranger took off his
earphones. "Sorry, man, I gotta read
Beowulf tonight."
I heard Fleming laugh.
"I don't like this one bit, Mister,"
I told him.
"So sue me," he said.
I sighed. "I don't have the time to
"Listen," the man interrupted.
"All I ask is that you be good."
"Well, what does 'be good'
mean?"
"It means to stay out of trouble."
"But -"
I tried to ask him what he meant,
but he just walked away.
I looked at the ball and the
instruction booklet.
"Do I get a bat with this," I
yelled after him.
"Oh, that comes later," he said.*

INTERVIEW
Continued from Page 8
L: He was actually involved before
me, but I don't know anyone who
could do what he does in this film.
D: Is the film just a Robin Williams
vehicle or is it a story?
L: Put it this way, a lot of people
are going to call it a vehicle. If
someone succeeds really well, you
say it's a vehicle. You never see an
actor who doesn't do well and you
say, "Oh, that was a vehicle for
him." So in other words, because he

w
performs so well, I think we can refer'
to it as a vehicle. But if you say, "Is
there a movie that's really there?" I'd
say yes. Is what Robin's doing
supportive of the film? Yes. He has a
responsibility to be a funny deejay
because that's what is set up. That is
an obligation he had to fulfill. It's a
dramatic piece.
D: So you're saying a lot of Robin's
portrayal in the film was ad-libbed,
that it couldn't be scripted?
L: I think you probably could script
it if you did it out of an improv
situation. There's two ways to do it.

We did improvisation because we're
working on our feet and I think we
understand how it goes... You can't
just run back to the editing room and
throw everything together. You've
got to know where you're going and
then you can refine it in the editing
room. But you can't just make it all
up. We could probably have sat down
for a week with transcripts and turned
