Episode #2: “There’s An Effing Boulder In This Town That Gets More Attention Than I Do”

INT. LACMA – DAY

 

PANTS among small crowd viewing the museum’s newest exhibit.

WOMAN #1
(reading from guide book)
“Levitating Mass”, Michael Heizer’s latest creation, is a 340-ton boulder positioned to appear as though it’s floating in midair.
WOMAN #2
I read in the newspaper it took dozens of people and a specially built trailer to haul it over the surface streets of 22 cities.
WOMAN #1
I saw on TV the trip took two weeks and that it travelled only at night.
WOMAN #1 (CONT’D)
I saw a video on YouTube of it
going 5mph on the freeway.
WOMAN #2
And the blogosphere is buzzing how the boulder’s story is being made into a movie and that Steven Soderbergh is directing it.
WOMAN #1
Oh, well, if anyone can tell a slow moving story it’s Steven
Soderbergh.

The WOMEN move on. PANTS stares at the boulder.

PANTS (V.O.)
I’m not saying that living in Los Angeles makes you feel small…but there’s an effing boulder in this town that gets more attention than I do.
