Yeah, I don’t think sober people would want to be witnesses either.
So they guy the Jakes trampled over ended up dead. Can’t say I’m very surprised.
He was pretty skillful in how he brought that right back around to his feud with Tuesday.
I like how smoothly the entertainment/media/etc is worked into the story. There’s good excuses for shows to come up a couple of times, and you get a real feeling for what each show is generally about. And, again, the shows serve a plot or character reason, every time they come up.
Hope that works.
Not to mention that they make you (well, me) absolutely terrified of this future history…
Cutting away to the TV show seems like a really good choice. There’s also some suspense now in wondering about what happened after the last scene at the dock/boardwalk/whatever-that-was.
Whenever nicki speaks I hear him in the voice of Ruby Rhod from fifth element http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSFg3pAprdg
If both of those guys are equally annoying, it would make for an even clearer characterization for Nicki.
It’s probably not that the police didn’t have any witnesses. It’s that when they heard the description of a whistling gang of bald, half-dressed, knife-wielding cultists like the Jakes they couldn’t tell whether it was a credible statement or a bad drug trip.
More likely, EJ was the only guy in that building who didn’t know not to mess with Jakes.
That seems more credible to me. EJ has seemed like a self-absorbed idiot.
