Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

What If The Dead’s Amazon Show Was Written By The Creators Of HBO’s Vinyl?

EXT: “WINTERLAND” – NIGHT

OPEN with a DISTRACTINGLY SHOW-OFFY ESTABLISHING SHOT. There are EXTRAS IN COSTUME everywhere.

People are taking DRUGS, which the camera FETISHIZES.

We find our hero, a MACHO GUY WHO LIVES BY HIS OWN CODE WHOM MARTIN SCORSESE WANTS TO FUCK, doing COCAINE out in open, because he is SO MACHO.

He walks up to TWO STONE-COLD TEEN FOXES with BIG TITS and gives them his business card.

C/U on the CARD. It reads “MACHO SCUNGILLI, PASTICHE RECORDS.”

The foxes are IMPRESSED and show him their TITS because we are on PAY CABLE.

MACHO
Ooh. I do like them titties, girls. But not as much as I love
rock and roll music. And cocaine. And leather blazers. Also, I’m
married, which will be a boring sub-plot.

Macho ENTERS “Winterland” (which is not referred to by name due to rights issues).

INT: “WINTERLAND”

We FOLLOW Macho on the SIGNATURE SCORSESE TRACKING SHOT through “Winterland.”

MUSIC CUE: STUDIO GUYS HALF-ASSING THROUGH A GRATEFUL DEAD SOUND-A-LIKE SONG

On the STAGE is the GRATEFUL DEAD, all of whom are played by MICK JAGGER’S SON.

MACHO
Dig that crazy sound! What these guys need is a
little push from Pastiche Records! They’re jamming
so hard that the place might collapse!

EXT: “WINTERLAND”

The building COLLAPSES.

Macho RISES from the rubble like AMERICAN JESUS and SNORTS ALL THE COCAINE.

MUSIC CUE: SOMETHING BY THE ROLLING STONES.
