Title: You might be obsessed with Paul Thomas Anderson if....
Post by: boombanglarrabee on October 21, 2003, 08:04:40 PM
You enrolled at NYU Film School and dropped out 2 days later just so you could have something in common with Paul.

You bought both Fiona Apple CD’s and you hate her music

You bought a DVD player just so you could watch the behind the scenes stuff in Magnolia

You are seriously considering moving from your hometown to the San Fernando Valley

You know what a 484 is

You hang out at Art’s Deli

You now smoke Camels and drink Diet Cokes by the boatload

You have rented most of the recommendations mentioned on ptanderson.com

You know who Greg Marriotti is

Not only do you know who Greg Mariotti is, you frequently correspond with him via email.

You break out in a cold sweat when you imagine what you’d do if he shut down his site

You know who Bumble Ward, Joanne Sellar, Dan Lupi and John Lesher are

You will only refer to Hard Eight as “Sydney” and correct other people when they make the mistake

You own the shooting script for Hard Eight.

You know that the above was a trick- the Hard Eight shooting script was never released.

You started shopping at the 99 cent Store after Punch Drunk Love came out

Every other word out of your mouth is “Fuck”

You can list every scene the number 82 is hidden in in Magnolia

You can list more than 5 of the movies he has mentioned in various interviews

You know the box office tally for each of his movies

You hate Burt Reynolds

You hate Rysher and are glad they went out of business

You eat Healthy Choice Chicken Teriyaki for dinner

You knew all along who “Atticus Jones” was

You know what the X4 Project was.

You are anxiously awaiting the “X5” Project

You hounded all your friends to see Punch Drunk Love and wouldn’t talk to them until they did.

When people complain that Magnolia was too long, you’re quick to point out that Boogie Nights was only 30 minutes shorter.

You now stalk Philip Seymour Hoffman because you’ve noticed he’s the only actor to have appeared in all 4 of PTA’s films.

You will only refer to Paul as “PTA” and roll your eyes in disgust when people ask, “Who?”

You almost socked a person for getting Paul’s name confused with Wes Anderson.

You’re about to get fired because all you do at work is play the “Pudding Dash”

You own a blue suit.

Jeremy Blake is your favorite artist.

You know what a “Scopitone” is.

Your favorite shows right now are “Luis” and “Threat Matrix”

When PTA didn’t get the Oscar, you wrote a nasty letter to the Academy

You saw Camp and can’t wait until the DVD comes out

On vacation in LA, you decided to go to Largo

You have read “A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius” and “A Conspiracy of Paper”- just in case.

You’d rather go to Reno than Vegas.

You rented “While the Cat’s Away” just so you could see what the actress in it looked like

You have a running count of how many reporters have asked Paul about frogs in Magnolia

You’re getting nervous because you know that right after Boogie Nights, he was told, “Your next 3 movies are green lit,” and he’s about to make #3.

You were Rollergirl for Halloween.

You were Rollergirl for Halloween and you’re a guy.

You’re kind of sad there won’t be a Boogie Nights 2

You frequently send hate mail to Kevin Smith

Even so, you are dying to know who his doctor is

You bought The Dirk Diggler Story and Cigarettes & Coffee off eBay.

You threw it away because you felt guilty

You expected Clementine’s Loop to be in Punch Drunk Love and were shocked when it wasn’t.

You read all 72 pages of Jessica Redenbach’s paper and since you took issue with some of her points, you decided to write your own paper in response

You preferred the title “The Rose” and wonder why Paul changed it

You have called the Seduce and Destroy hotline

You slowed down that shot in Magnolia because you HAD to  know what books Stanley was reading in the library

You then checked them out and read them

You bought doughnuts last December and realized you asked the person behind the counter if they were decorated “for the Christmas”

You know what game show Paul was a PA on

You know the correct pronunciation of “Rajskub”

You cried when Greg shut down the message board

You can’t stop wondering if “Flagpole Special” will ever be released

You keep asking your friend in Vermont which cabin is Bill Macy’s so you can see where most of Magnolia was written

When people ask you how you are, you tell them you’re very food.

You own 2 copies of every soundtrack- one for your house, one for your car

You can't remember what color your walls are painted since every movie poster he's made is plastered all over your walls.

You borrowed money so you could fly to the closest  Q & A session with Paul since you live in a small town that you know he’ll never come to

When things are slow, Greg calls YOU for news on Paul

You drove by an elementary school and pulled over when you saw a sign that said “PTA meeting,” and had to remind yourself that it’s not the same thing.  You stuck around a while just to make sure.

You and your friends play a drinking game to all of Paul’s movies and take shots whenever the John C. Reilly or Philip Seymour Hoffman are onscreen.

You watch his movies while holding the shooting script in your hand, noting all discrepancies.

You applied for an internship at New Line.

When you got your cell phone, you insisted on getting a number in the 818-area code- and you live in Florida.

You’ve sent your headshots to his casting director but you’re not even an actor.

You’ve joined fan clubs for Aimee Mann, Beck, Quentin Tarantino and Michael Penn just because you know they are some of his friends.  You constantly email their fans asking if they have any stories about Paul.

You taught yourself the choreography to the dance scene in Boogie Nights.

You’re taking voice lessons to prepare if he ever does that musical.

Your child’s first word was “Ghoulardi”

You are eager to spot someone’s cheek leak.

You can’t say yes to every one of these items, and it’s pissing you off.

You tried to pitch “What Do Kids Know” to CBS.

When staying in hotels, you either give the name “Dirk Diggler” or “Amber Waves,” depending on your gender.

You thought about getting a pair of lovebirds and named them Barry and Lena, but changed your mind when you heard Paul hates birds.

You’ve watched Magnolia so many times, you were actually able to finally understand what Dixon said in his rap (without the words in front of you!!!)

Pink Dot will no longer deliver to your house because you called them to ask for peanut butter, Camel Lights, white bread, Swank and Barely Legal over 20 times.

You might transfer to Boston University next semester just so you can take that class being taught on Paul and 3 other directors.  You decide to get the syllabus way ahead of time so you'll only be in class on the days they talk about Paul.

You carry a digital camera with you in case it ever rains frogs.

You’re still paying off the credit card bill from the impromptu trip to Cannes you took a year and a half ago.

You told your boy/ girlfriend you wanted to smash her face in.  You wondered why s/he called the police.

You watched Minority Report enough times that you finally found PTA in it.  While it was still in the theaters.  (They thought they could slip it by you?  You’d know the back of that head ANY day!)  And you still bought the DVD.

You keep calling the cable company and telling them you’re going to move if they don’t add FX to their lineup so you can see the TV edit of Boogie Nights.  You’re tired of having to borrow it from your cousin who lives across town.

You check ptanderson.com more than you check your email.

You’ve looked in the phone book to see if there are any “Paul T. Anderson’s” in your town.  You’ve called them.  

You’ve got a co-worker named Denise who is about to slap a sexual harassment charge on you if you call her “Denise the Piece” ONE more time.

You are a man who refers to your package as your “big, fat sausage-a!”

You don’t know why Avi and Solomon were so freaked out when Donnie wanted to get braces.  Anything for your idol, right?  

You’re taking harmonium lessons. You get pissed when people ask you if it’s a small piano.  

You went to a casino and wouldn’t play until you got a rate card.

This thread should be permanently sticky-ed near the top of the PTA board, because I can think of nothing better that defines our mind-set.  :-D

Here's another sign you might be obsessed: You write for a newspaper and sneak subtle PTA references into your stories.

Before the high school football season, I wrote a tongue-in-cheek column in which I came up with a psych-up song for each local team, something to get them fired up before the game.

Two of the entries were are follows:

DELONE CATHOLIC — Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now, by McFadden & Whitehead: There hasn’t been much stopping the Squires during Denny Frew’s 26-year tenure as head coach. This long-lost sports anthem came out in 1979, when Frew was in his second season. Now, Frew is closing in on his 300th career victory.

EASTERN YORK — The Touch, by Stan Bush: It may seem a bit goofy to include a song from the soundtrack of “Transformers: The Movie.” But if lyrics like “And you never get hit when your back’s to the wall/Gonna fight to the end and you’re takin’ it all” don’t make you want to go pummel the quarterback (or some evil robot), then you shouldn’t have a helmet on.

Your eyes light up whenever you see Philip Baker Hall in a non-PTA movie.

You excessively use the phrases, "this is bullshit, mothafucka," "shut the fuck up," and "now you must really shut the fuck up."

You know who Michael Penn is.

You always bet on the hard eight at the craps table.

You refer to Hard Eight as Sydney.

You're not here for the fucking nachos.

Read the list, I guess I'm not obsessed. But I knew that already. I'm a pathetic PTA fan that fits into the "Well....I taped his 3 most popular movies off TV" category. Though I did dress up as rollergirl for Halloween. Twice.

Post by: boombanglarrabee on November 03, 2003, 10:39:41 AM
If you were rollergirl not once but twice (with a screenname like "Derek," I can only imagine), you've taped 3 out of his 4 movies, and you're on xixax.  I hate to break it to you, but you've got a bad case of denial.  It's ok, you know, there's lots of us.  Consider this forum a kind of support group, if you will.  The first step is admitting you have a problem.  Chin up, kiddo.   :wink:

How about:

You join PETA, purely because it has the initials PTA in them

You make your girlfriend/wife call you Paul or Dirk in bed

You're trying to persuade your wife into becoming a solo musician while you pursue your career in filmmaking

You have a web page dedicated to him

You watch the "Magnolia" Diary all the time just to try and mimic the way he incessantly talks with his hands

Whenever you're in the movie store, you tell anybody near you, whether you know them or not, that Punch-Drunk Love is the best movie in the new release section (which is what I do at my job)

You rent "Popeye" just to see and hear the original version of "He Needs Me"

You sing "He Needs Me" in the shower, whether you're a girl or not.

Whenever you're feeling blue, you thinking about Kevin Smith's attempts at downgrading a much superior filmmaker and it makes you laugh- Then you remember that you know more fans of Smith than you do fans of PTA, then you frown again.

You add to an already overwhelming list of PTA obsessions on a message board.

I'm done.......

I just read these PTA obsessive lists by boom. I really started digging BN about 2 months ago or less and am still captured by it. Now that I've seen Magnolia once and PDL 4 times, I have to say I have become fascinated with his work.

It's kind of weird how many of those PTA-isms I already know in such a short time. This has to be one of the best posts I have come across on here thanks to you.

One of the best lists ever!

I can't resist...

Your girlfriend will bail if you make her say "your cock is so beautiful" one more time.

She has also asked you repeatedly to stop calling it "that one special thing".

You've been told over and over by friends and family that you are indeed NOT a " big, bright shining star".

You walk around in a 70s cowboy getup... always with a coffee mug.

As soon as you bought the Magnolia dvd you skipped to the last scene and turned on the subtitles so you could find out exactly what John C. Riley said to Melora Walters.

You constantly ask your dying grandpa why "every word that comes out of his mouth is either cocksucker, shitballs, or fuck" even though he hasn't spoken in six months.

Your six year old little brother tells his kindergarten teacher to "respect the cock!"

(man this is fun)

No matter how much you offer, no one will pay you ten bucks to look at your dick (or twenty to see you jerk off).

You no longer simply tell people to shut up. It's always "shut, shut, shut, shut, shut up!

Anytime you complement someone you call it "waxing their car".

Want to keep going... must....stop...

If figured it'd go like this.....telling your girlfriend there's going to be some changes around here and it's time we respect the cock and tame the twat. Then she slaps the hell out of you and leaves your ass forever with bills and........stuff. yeah

I just read these PTA obsessive lists by boom. I really started digging BN about 2 months ago or less and am still captured by it. Now that I've seen Magnolia once and PDL 4 times, I have to say I have become fascinated with his work.

It's kind of weird how many of those PTA-isms I already know in such a short time. This has to be one of the best posts I have come across on here thanks to you.

One of the best lists ever!


Thank you!

All the contributions... I love them.  I'm so happy.

-you suddenly quit writing your action-adventure script, or musical script, or quirky script about a loner finding true love   and instead begin to adapt a fairly obscure novel.    

-The 'Baraka-Meets-Scorsese' style of the piece you are working on suddenly takes a backseat so that you can give it an early century look and somehow include a distinguished looking rich guy with a beard.

- you fell for the idea of that damn Chase movie last April Fools.

i saw Paul about two months ago driving down 2nd Avenue, while waiting online to watch Masculine Feminine. He was driving a mini-van and had his hand to his mouth like he was deciding where he wanted to go.

the same day, I saw Phil Hoffman walking up Seventh Avenue, talking on his cell, as they were shooting 'The Family Stone' across the street at the Riviera Cafe on Christopher Street.

We call it Chere Mill Be Blood.

Pubrick coined this based on the font on the original poster (see below). Basically no one is resisting it anymore.

What's Chere Mill? Google bears no fruit on the matter.

Tell me everything. I want to be well-versed in all of Xixax history.

Chere Mill is the first two words from the title of Paul Thomas Andersons fifth feature film Chere Mill Be Blood.

Oh, nevermind, I see it now. I guess the typographer side of me blocked out reading any other way than was already established.

I forget that i'm being silly when i say "Chere Mill" and have in fact used it during a serious conversation... and they didn't even question or correct me!

I had a dream last night that I saw 'The Master' -- it made perfect sense to me for a while, and the movie was actually incredible, until I realized it was a movie I had made up in my mind about railroad tycoons (???). I had only realize this after (in my dreams) I e-mailed PTA 25 times about me liking the movie and he responded 25 times (that's when I realized it wasn't actually 'The Master' but something I'd made up, so I knew I was in a dream). So then I went outside to my parking lot and saw an awkward handle near a dumpster which opened up to reveal (woah!) PTA was living in an underground vault! Baffled, and excited, we quickly became friends and frolicked like fuck around my neighborhood. In my actual life, there's a lady here who has a shitty car that always pollutes the air with smoke, that same woman manifested in my dreams. When PTA and I got near her, he started coughing, then a lot more, then eventually he coughed so hard he vomited some weird yellow stuff on my arm and told me to go the emergency room quickly or I could get a thing called "nucleus throat" (???) so I did, and I went to the hospital within 10 minutes and was quarantined in a room with only UV lights where my arm was wrapped in an air tight sheet and they pulled that nasty viscous material out of me and I woke up soon afterwards.

ya'll jelly? :finger:

Psh. No. Well, kind of. But not as much as some dudes here who would pull a Martha Marcy May Marlene to spend any amount of time with PTA.

Woah, hang on! Why does that emoticon exist then if not to be used alongside something ironic!
