原来台北

彩虹会馆黑房区的走廊边,在一处较黑暗的角落里坐着一位连行动都不是很方便的老头子,大概钓鱼钓了老半天都没成绩,闷得呼呼大睡起来。时光在他身上早已流失,在一抬头一叹气之间,他努力争取人生的最后一场高潮。华丽的偶像剧和娱乐节目背后,原来台北也有彷徨。

在西门町的一间小戏院里与林林和丽嘉观看了一出热门的同志电影《盛夏光年》。开戏五分钟前来了位二十多岁的女生,一个人拿着爆米花汽水坐了在我旁边的座位上,在最感人的那一幕也只是静静地拿着手巾往眼里擦。260多万人口的大都市里,原来台北也有寂寞。

公司会馆里讶异地发现了中年人士们的天堂。贱肉横生的身躯乘着暖暖运作的电梯,从黑漆漆的电影间到灯火光明的餐厅,从播着过气台语歌的karaoke房里到热烘烘的洗澡间。我们立时变成了小孩子。全世界可以崇拜青春洋溢的乳牛群和帅哥族,可是原来在台北这,小熊们才是上等的好货色。

有一晚闯进了228和平公园,想象自己去到了《孽子》里五十年前精彩缤纷的黑暗天地里。原来除了厕所里的几只赏鸟族和随着行人道默默兜圈的那零零碎碎的影子们,曾经热闹过的莲花池早已在最后一根莲花拔起后失去光辉。

Funky 同志吧那夜被挤到了舞池边的巨型波音机旁弯着腰观看了一场还算精彩的签唱会,然后疯狂地随着强劲的中文音乐起舞。原来徐若瑄真的会唱歌。

旅程的最后一晚在西门町买了一串香喷喷的烤鱿鱼一个人坐了在行人道旁的梯级慢慢地一口一口将它吃完。不远处陪着我的有一位低着头猛按手机的女学生,一位闭着眼听着ipod摇着头的男生,一位在歇着息捡空瓶子为生的阿嘛,还有一位大概神志不清在街边便跳舞便唱歌的中年男人。在人潮不断的周六欢乐时光里,原来台北也有孤独。

筹备了五个月的台湾旅程,原来一转眼间就过去了。

max: yes i did, wasn't as much fun as I expected, the place i mean, not hezt haha.

hcpen: now i'm sure the taiwanese newspaper made the appearance as grand as the Olympics grand opening, when it fact, it was only as exciting as those regular dance sessions in LQ (not that I've been lately, but I can imagine).

原来我们同一天到访Funky。我们到达的时候,vivian已经走了。
我隔天在西门町看见张孝全小小的签名会。
