The Nitpicker’s Guide to Perfect Lives

August 26, 2011

I would like to start a forum for certain problems I have with this text and story. Let’s be clear, if these little details had been fixed, I know the final product would have been more successful.

1) The drive from Peoria, IL to the Indiana border is less than 3 hours away. Even the most remote point in Indiana takes less than 6 hours. If the quartet left at 5am, how did it take them 12 hours to find a Justice of the Peace in Indiana.

Even if this story had taken place before the Eisenhower Interstate plan of ’56 (and I’m sure it does not, since catfood in easy-to-open cans is a product of the 70s) it’s less than 8 hours to the most remote parts of the state.

    Sources tell me now that since this is all based on Robert Ashley’s teenage years, that the twelve hour drive was in fact a full twelve hours and in a car with a backseat full of holes.

    2) The Bar’s Boogie Woogie sequence is in the key of C, though the episode’s key is D minor.

    I’m sure no one will notice if the chorus changes its chant to: DDFF DDAA DDCsharpCsharp DDAA.
