Post some lines from a short story & see if anyone can guess their origin W/O using Google

"New York. Early Seventies, maybe '73 or'74. I was in the city on business. Business taken care of, I got together with a friend, a writer from Texas who loves movies as much and as indiscriminately as I do.
The ritual: The movie crawl. Load up on junk food, start at the first movie theater on the downtown side of 42nd Street, and just work our way from Times Square to 8th Avenue, cross the street, and work our way back to Times Square.
Days. Endless days. 24, 36, 48 hours straight time in the dark.
We eat in there, sleep in there, piss and daydream in there.
Hot dogs, popcorn, slabs of cheese, munchies, French bread, any damn thing,
And we see them all, the good flicks, the bad flicks, the kung-fu-operas, the porn jobs, the superfly stomp the paddy flicks - all of them.
One after the other 'til our eyes turn to poached eggs, staggering from theater to theater like refugees from a Macao opium den."
