Southland Tales (2006) (part 8 of 10)

Starla calls out “Jericho Cain!” Boxer turns to see her standing before him.

She yells, “The information I’ve uncovered could get me killed, but, it’s a risk I’m willing to take!” Does that risk include having your bra poking out of your sundress like that? I know this is supposed to be an alternate future and all, but still—Boxer looks her up and down as if even he can’t believe what she’s wearing. I so know, girlfriend!

Starla tells him, “The fate of the world depends on you, Jericho!” He just agrees, not at all fazed by the fact that she’s calling him by a different name.

Starla then goes into full-RPG mode: “You must board the MegaZeppelin! The secret you are looking for is hidden in the Baron’s private chamber!” But you must not wake the sleeping Moloch on the third level, or you’ll lose half your hit points and that kickass armor you slew five million orcs just to get! Boxer asks her with deadly seriousness, “What is the secret?” Why risk going on a dangerous quest, when you can simply get all the answers from the schizo lady?

When not burying her face in a book or wiping snot off her preschooler, LaShawn can often be found hunched over her laptop, churning out short stories and cackling madly. She likens bad movies to fried twinkies--greasy, fattening, full of empty calories, and very, very addictive.
