In this week’s issue of the paper, Chris Heller talked to Claude Jackal (also known as Chris Lowell of Private Practice and Veronica Mars fame) about his plans for Homecoming Weekend 2009.
After throwing an impromptu block party outside Tombs during last year’s Homecoming weekend, Jackal and friends have high hopes for this year (and have even set up a blog devoted to the cause). Unfortunately, we didn’t have space for all of the Jackal’s bon mots in the article, so here are some of his other entertaining declarations:
On Homecoming Weekend 2009:
“Tell everyone you know: friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, friends of friends. Call people in different cities and get them to come. Invite people who you know will have a good time, because I guarantee you it’s going to be something special. And if they seem indifferent, just start lying! Just make up shit. Tell them Shia LaBeouf is gonna be there or something. Who cares? All’s fair in Love and Jackal.”
“Remember that rant Christian Bale had when he was shooting the Terminator movie? It’s time to get that intense. If we play our cards right, this is gonna be like losing your virginity all over again. Except it won’t suck.”
“There’s no exclusivity—we’re like the fucking Musketeers. So just show up, if you want to dress fancy, that’s how we’ll be dressed. I can tell you this: we’ll all be dressed like Frank Sinatra’s wet dream.”
