p.s. Hey. ** David Ehrenstein, Hi. At least one of the major candidates for sure. That ‘TOSotW’ trailer is really exciting. Can not wait. ** Sypha, I still haven’t cracked Season 3. I’m still waiting for something that’s currently overcrowding my brain to move out so there’ll be room. I’ve heard of Shenmue. Unless memory fails me, I don’t think I ever spent any time on a Dreamcast console. It sounds extremely up my alley, I must say. And I have a computer, god knows. Oh, man, now I want it, and I’m trying not to slip into something time-consuming (see: Season 3). I’ll go tiptoe around it and see if I trip and fall. Thanks, James. ** Steve Erickson, Hi. Glad you dipped in and liked your dip. Well, I can only speak from my experience, but making films with relatively quite small budgets — 125k for PGL and teeny-tiny in LCTG’s case — like Zac and I have, we’ve had no interference whatsoever in the work from our two producers. So, theoretically, unless your film is going to cost a lot-ish or something, it seems pretty plausible that you could make the film you want as you want. Yeah, zero or less than zero interest in that Cher thing. Either reinvent ABBA songs or accept that the originals are definitive. ** Quinn R, Hi, Quinn. Welcome, and it’s very good to meet you. Ah, you’re a fellow Joy Williams fan. She’s just the best. Thank you very much for your kind words about my work and the LHotB books! That’s really heartening. I’m obviously really interested to read your conversation with Kevin. I’ll go do that as soon as I’ve launched this post. I’d really like to read your own work. Is there any available online or anywhere? How are you liking Berlin? Yeah, the next time I get there, it would be really nice to meet. Also, if you get over here to Paris, let me know, and we can hit a cafe or something. Again thank you a lot for coming in here and talking with me. For sure feel more than free to come in and comment whenever you feel like it. It would be a pleasure for me. Take care. ** Amphibiouspeter, Hey! I’m happy you liked the VanDerBeek work. No, Paris is really into itself, understandably since it’s as beautiful as a city can be, and they have strict laws about tearing down buildings or doing extensive revisions on their facades. Coming from LA where tearing down/replacing is a constant — which I also love, actually — it’s quite interesting. I used to get back to LA fairly often. I have an apartment there. But in recent years I only seem to go ‘home’ once or twice a year, almost always at Halloween because that’s when LA is at its best, well, if you’re me. Do you get to LA? How do you like where you’re situated? ** Misanthrope, Hi, G. Who, me? Oops, sorry about the DJ sameness. I think you were probably supposed to dance your way through it and prioritise muscle movement over brain food. I’m not surprised New Order pulled in the frat set. Those ‘revisiting past glories’ shows tend to do that for whatever reason. And, as a fellow tall guy, yeah, things have bounced off my back and head in those situations too many times to count. Sorry, shorties. Dude, you’re acing the tests left and right. I can feel your shoulders relaxing from way over here. Mine too in their own way. Yeah, not sure how busy or not I’ll be. Might be on the busy side, but text me, and let’s see what we can do. Cool, you can be the frat guy at the PGL events. My stuff doesn’t tend to pull in the beered-up frat set, so that should be quite novel. ** Okay. Someone here suggested I do a lunchbox post a short while back. I went in search, and, based on what was available and interesting, I wound up deciding that lunchboxes speaking for themselves was the best way to go. So there are a ton of them up there. Do what you will in their regards. And see you tomorrow.
