Think PTA was actively trolling Elswit and that's why it's so sedate? lol

Maybe Elswit was saying "Paul, maybe we should move the fucking camera and have some establishing shots!".

Ew. A take can be compelling in so many ways. For Paul, clearly he's in love with performances and actors off the jump. Why IV'z detractors insist it should have been the sort of PTA/Elswit collaboration we've already seen before, I'll never understand.

Ugh...I've long suspected this, but to hear it more or less confirmed hurts. This hits me like when Blixa Bargeld or, more pointedly, Mick Harvey left the Bad Seeds...  :(

Listening to the podcast itself, it seems to me that Elswit is definitely at least 50% tongue-in-cheek/sardonic here. After this tidbit, he tells a 5 minute story about how brilliant and talented PTA is.

This clip of him from last year moved me when I saw it. More so now.
