Hey look, it’s another Paul F. Tompkins interview! That’s two in one week, what is he runnin’ for Pope?

Money Shot:

You know, I’ve never understood people that say, “I’m going to sit there and write comedy for an hour.” I just don’t understand how that’s going to happen, because for me, I’ve just been someone that when I’m inspired, that’s when I write. You know, when something occurs to me I write it down. I can’t imagine. I just don’t work very well under those sorts of conditions. Because then it becomes a job, it becomes a punishment in my mind. You know, I understand that other people don’t work that way, but to me it’s like I HAVE to write for an hour. That would make me not want to write and consequently I will not get anything done. Then I’ll just feel pressured.

Ahhh ED-209, only you can make me giddy while obliterating a mid-level employee of a none-too fictitious corporation. RoboCop is one of those movies that expertly blended action, violence and very dark humor; like this (unedited NSFW) scene.

Funniest line: “Somebody wanna call a goddamn paramedic!” Beautiful!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The rumors continue.

Money shot:

“It’s typically bent and twisted,” Bateman said of the story concocted by series mastermind Mitchell Hurwitz. “He’s got a really, really good idea for the movie version that would not be just simply the equivalent of four episodes back to back to back. It’s actually something that would be specific to the medium of film.”

I’d expect noting less from Hurwitz.

UPDATE: Jeffery Tambor adds fuel to the confirmation fire.

I am not sure why I chose a picture of birds either. I typed “remember” into Flickr and this is what came up, plus there are two birds and two viewpoints; in another universe it’s brilliant! Anywho…

This guy knew a side of George few others did, unless they were 4-year-olds.

This guy thinks Carlin was the 5th Horseman of the Apocalypse.

Both good reads!
