trivia: the picture's head-on, obscuring the back that spans for miles, weaving in and out of underground diamond and sugar mines.

Deep undergound, beneath the kiddie pool in the backyard, is a secret lab filled with technicians in yellow jumpsuits, who pour over Aimee Mann lyrics with Cray supercomputers so fast they need to be cooled in baths of liquid nitrogen, doggedly deciphering irrefutable emotional truths in preparation for his next screenplay.

The initials on the front gate are 'DB'. Don't try to fool me. That's Danny Boyle's estate.

Okay, it's time to fess up: How did you find this place?

I kinda like it.  A bit desolate, perhaps, but necessary from a writer's standpoint.

Can you please go back and take a picture from a different perspective to prove Picolas' theory?

Why are there stairs going to the roof?

And is anybody else getting a surreal picture of PTA sitting on the top of his house?

now the joke is dead of course, it was good while it lasted, and in a way i'm thankful to u for making it worthwhile.. the point of these things is to fool gullible ppl.

Let me tell you something, coffeebeetle.. chainsmoking insomniac.... Punchdrunk23... whatever you want to be called this week: you're nothing but an ignorant fool. Maybe some people can tolerate this sort of thing, but I'm sure as hell NOT one of them.

This isn't P being a nazi. This was just P stating the obvious: that you were really fucking gullible. And now you're being a crybaby because you're embarrassed for being exposed as an complete idiot. Just accept it, kid. Yeah, Bethie didn't seem to get it either but at least she suspected the joke, and as you can see from the lack of her angry posts, she's not losing sleep over this like you seem to be.

After the several months you've been around, missing for a few, changing identities because you fail miserably with your attitude each time you try, you still haven't figured it out. And it's sad. So either go away for good this time or grow the fuck up/ get over yourself.

Oh, and I don't think there's any reason to lock this thread, except for the fact that you ruined it entirely.

I don't see what changing my name has to do with anything, cinephile.    It also seems that nearly every time I'm on this site, P is contributing a snide remark or pointing out somebody else's flaws.  This bothers me alot, though I'll admit I don't always handle it the way I should (as this thread shows).  

That being said, I've always respected you cinephile.  I'll also admit that I have a bit of a temper and don't always conduct myself in the best manner possible, and for this I apologize.  I've also come to the conclusion that I need to stay away from P's posts.  Things will run much more smoothly.  So yes, I behaved childishly on this thread.  Forgive me.  Thanks.  :)

Hey, remember back when someone was saying that during the filming of PDL that PTA would keep a relaxed set?
And that sometimes he would show in his PJs?
And then they made a typing mistake and said something like
"He would sleep on his trailer"  as opposed to "sleep IN his trailer"?
Like SNOOPY?
Remember that?

Well now I'm thinking the 'on' thing might not be so far from the truth

Cool Pics
Wonder where PTA was when they were taken
Maybe on the set of a movie so secretive that they made X-5 project signs to post around and then actually made them invisible but you can only see them if you wearing a certain kind of sunglasses designed by Robert Rodriguez for the Top Secret Spy Kids 4-D: Please Continue to pay me to make Crap.

The name changing has to do with the fact that you seem to be living in the Punchdrunk days. Everyone has changed but you seem to be the only old user that has not changed with Xixax. If you read what Pubrick actually says on the board, you'll see he's changed too. And let me tell you, if HE didn't didn't tell you flat out that you're gullible, then I sure would have. Because it was obvious from the start.

It's good you can admit that you're being an idiot and an asshole about this but I think from here on in you have to accept that you're living in the past and Pubrick isn't what you say he is. You claim you need to stay away from his posts but it seems you already have... otherwise you'd understand the reality of what's going on around here. So the way I see it, if somebody like him calls you out on something -- don't blow up childishly. THEN things will run smoother. Thanks.  :)
