The fucking river
anyway. They need to shorten that fucker up. But tis a long and winding
water way that needs a long convoluted name, and so be it then.
So anyway, I know
a guy on the river, he has a personal relationship with every rock that
threatens to take off the prop on his outboard motor and every island
from St. Cloud down to the Coon rapids dam. There is a special "neighborhood"
just down stream of where the river flows past Anoka (where the Rum
River comes in). The common area, "the back yard," is the
river, where the people are crazy wierdos and dull prudes and nothing
much in the middle. My pal is a hermit, but goes around being gregarious
with these people. He's a river rat. I don't know what your film will
be looking for, but an interlude in this place might be of interest.
I hope the film can encompass the Minnesota end of it in a thorough
manner, because it is clear that this is a great place to start, and
of course the reason why the river flows south in spite of the elevation
being higher down in Louisiana, is because Iowa Sucks!
