Watch it now
Nerdy Walter Paisley (Dick Miller), a maladroit busboy at a beatnik café who doesn't fit in with the cool scene around him, attempts to woo his beautiful co-worker, Carla (Barboura Morris), by making a bust of her. When his klutziness results in the death of his landlady's cat, he panics and hides its body under a layer of plaster. But when Carla and her friends enthuse over the resulting artwork, Walter decides to create some bigger and more elaborate pieces using the same artistic process.


The cavernous CLUB is packed with a cross section of ARTISTS, POETS,


assorted characters, standing at the bar and seated at tables -

bizarre PAINTINGS and SCULPTURES adorn the walls -

CLOSE on a BOOM BOX on a stage - the tape rolls, and soon strange

industrial music begins to blare from the box -

MAXWELL, an eccentric - looking man with a goatee and various

PIERCINGS on his face, stands on the stage in front of a microphone

- an abstract PORTRAIT hangs on the wall behind him -


I will talk to you of art, for

there is nothing else to talk

about, for there is nothing

else...life is nothing but

homeless traveler on the RTD

of art...

We pull back to see PATRONS sitting at tables amid various

sculptures, paintings, and displays of questionable artistic promise



Burn gas on the freeways, and whip your

sour cream of circumstance...flip at

your channels and plod at your monitors...

Soon we see WALTER PAISLEY, a meek, unassuming bus boy, work his way

around the tables, taking empty drinks, emptying ashtrays, all the

time listening to the performer on

stage -


Creation is, all else is not...

what is not creation is meatless

sausage, and rice cake, let it

all crumble to feed the artist -

Walter passes a table where an upscale ART DEALER with a ponytail

interrupts his prospective client to answer his

cellular phone -


The artist is, all others are not, a

canvas is a canvas or a painting, a

rock is a rock or a statue, a sound

is a sound or it is music, a preacher

is a preacher or an artist -

Walter passes ART, seated with two attractive women - he rolls

himself a cigarette, nodding in approval to Maxwell -
