i interview myself about the interview:
Q: Does the interviewer ask him about tv?
Q: Does the interviewer use his own mentioning of the tv topic to express his personal opinion about tv?
A: Yes, BEE is the interviewer.
Q: So really this interview isn't so much about QT's vision as about BEE's vision of his vision?
A: Yeah, somehow BEE thinks his obsessions with art as a cultural force is more important than art itself, which is ridiculous.
Q: Does he even bring up the Oscars?
A: He does.
Q: Why read this interview?
A: Because QT isn't BEE: "If people don’t like my movies, they don’t like my movies, and if they don’t get it, it doesn’t matter."
Q: The 2006 Mustang GT from Death Proof?
Q: Is it common for hipsters to smoke outside the New Bev?
A: BEE saw a few people standing outside smoking because it's the goddamn law to smoke outside. The vast majority of hipsters practice their yoga and/or meditation. The problem with BEE's culture chats is you can't read from the inside a culture you only see from the outside.
Q: Relative to the number of smokers, is the common New Bev audience a "young audience" of "kids"?
A: What BEE thinks he notices are forces of the present that affect the future. I suspect he's mentioning the "kids" for the article to appeal to kids and to demonstrate concerns about the future of the movie medium, but there's no way in hell two Chaplin movies played in LA without elderly people in attendance. What should make a person worry less about BEE's worries is he has the problem of noticing something then expanding in his head its size and importance, and culture isn't controlled by BEE's head though we know he tries his best.
Q: Does QT have friendly chats with anyone who approaches him?
A: Never have I seen QT not engage in a friendly chat with a person who approached him for whatever reason.
