    I’ll take three. Oh, and throw in a few vats of that milk blood stuff and a Verizon 20-year contract while you’re at it.

    Super. Thanks.

    The “David site” goes into such detail about how capable he is of recognizing the emotions of others…I’m awaiting a tedious response from the Asperger’s lobby.

    I am awaiting David Bowie to show up and ask Fox to pay him some likeness rights! Also, seriously, if androids are ever part of fucking TWO YEAR CONTRACTS, then I will settle on the pay as you go Androids. Sure they won’t be as flashy but if they try to kill me or mine, or decide to chase people around town in the nude. I can just sell it used on Amazon and get a slightly newer model without being beholden to freaking Verizon or ATT and their damn flashy Androids and GOD DAMN TWO YEAR CONTRACTS!

“The middle-range movies that I was doing have largely either stopped being made, or they’ve moved to television, now that television is a go-to medium for directors who can’t get work in theatricals, because there are so few theatricals being made. But also with the new miniseries concept, you can tell a long story in detail without having to cram it all into 90 minutes. You don’t have to cut the characters and take out the secondary people. You can actually put them all on a big canvas. And it is a big canvas, because people have bigger screens now, so there’s no aesthetic difference between the way you shoot a movie and the way you shoot a TV show.

“Which is all for the good. But what’s happened in the interim is that theatrical movies being a spectacle business are now either giant blockbuster movies that run three hours—even superhero movies run three hours, they used to run like 58 minutes!—and the others, which are dysfunctional family independent movies or the slob comedy or the kiddie movie, and those are all low-budget. So the middle ground of movies that were about things, they’re just gone. Or else they’re on HBO. Like the Bryan Cranston LBJ movie, which years ago would’ve been made for theaters.

“You’ve got people like Paul Schrader and Walter Hill who can’t get their movies theatrically distributed because there’s no market for it. So they end up going to VOD, and VOD is a model from which no one makes any money, because most of the time, as soon as they get on the site, they’re pirated. So the whole model of the system right now is completely broken. And whether or not anybody’s going to try to fix, or if it even can be fixed, I don’t know. But it’s certainly not the same business that I got into in the ’70s.”

“Lars. He’s done a lot of drugs. Over the hill. The last time I saw Lars, he was telling my wife he wants to have sex with her. I told him to fuck off. So he found another slut.”
