The prunes - the plot

    There are a handful of basic fruit tree shapes . The shape that works best for cherry, apricot, and pluot trees is the Modified Central Leader . The filled in shape and leaves offer more protection from sunscald—in fact, in the sunny Southwest this is an ideal shape for any fruit tree. Modified Central Leader can also be used for walnut, pomegranate, persimmon, apple, and pear trees.

    From one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century, Terry Southern (Screenwriter on Dr. Strangelove, Easy Rider, The Cincinnati Kid and the author of such novels as The Magic Christian and Blue Movie) comes a hard-hitting short script combining the author's satiric eye with his surrealist impulse first published in PLAYBOY Magazine in 1967. TERRY SOUTHERN'S PLUMS AND PRUNES was originally intended as part of an anthology of Risque Cinema entitled "Pardon me Sir, But is my Eye Hurting your Elbow", but wasn't made due to its "questionable taste". That is, until now. Forty years later TERRY SOUTHERN'S PLUMS AND PRUNES is a reality in all its twisted and perverted glory. Set in 1950's picturesque America, TERRY SOUTHERN'S PLUMS AND PRUNES is the story of Brad, or more generally, about the male fear of growing old. Featuring a marvelous Free Jazz Soundtrack and flawless photography, TERRY SOUTHEN'S PLUMS AND PRUNES is a thought-provoking expose on the male psyche with a Grand Guignol finish. A sexual fantasy rooted in reality--a nightmare reality of aging in a youth-centered world.

    First you have to work with me.  Prune juice is something we all only drink unless we need it, if you know what I mean.  Not once you pick up a bottle at Trader Joe’s.  This isn’t an ad (though Trader Joe’s if you want to work with me, I am all ears).  Trader Joe’s organic prune juice is cravable.  It’s thick and creamy and sweet and smooth and wonderful.  I want to drink it.  It’s so good it’s often out of stock at our local TJ’s.
