My run-in w/ Q (plus Vol. 2)

Why I missed the Pulp chat last night:
So last night, my roommate gets us into the 'green room' at Jimmy Kimmel show.  It's mentioned on the show often b/c the guests can't believe it-- the place is literally a club.  Open bar, tasty food, music, flat screen tv's, a pool table, arcade games, etc.  Seeing as how I'm not driving, I take over the role of designated drunk.  I alternate between Fosters and Chivas on the rocks.  Towards the end of the show, Q makes his way back and is mobbed.  Finally, I see an in and introduce myself (oh yeah, I'm blotto by this point).  I tell Quentin how the reason I'm out here in LA-LA land is b/c of his work and how his work and story inspired me (all true, and I'm sure came off very ass-kissy).  He was very nice.  I of course had to blurt out how I just closed my first deal and how hard I've worked and I owe it all to him blah blah blah.  Q asked what my movie was about and we talked 'shop' for a little while.  He made a point of remembering my name and what the movie was called (promised he would see it if/when it comes out) and then we got talking about the Coen Brothers (my movie is very Coen-ish).  My roommate watched this in awe and after it was over he said "I can't believe it.  Quentin loves you."  I stumbled over to a table and wrote a drunken 'thank you' note, which my roommate had to rewrite b/c my handwriting was illegible.  I slipped it to him a la Sharon Stone in 'Casino.'  At the time, it seemed like a good idea.  But still-- he was a cool, gracious, nice guy.  My respect for him only grows.  And to top it off, after the show, I walked outside and threw up in the alley outside the Kimmel theatre.  What a night.  Thankfully I managed to sober up to see KB today.

Seriously.  I'm frothing at the fucking mouth right now.  Congrats though, I'm actually happy for you too.
more than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. one path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. the other, to total extinction. let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.

Good story. Great timing on your part with the vomitting but I would've preferred if you ended up puking on QT. That would've made for a better story and maybe I wouldn't have been so jealous of you right about now.

The puking was like, 1/2 hour after the encounter.  The booze really hit me at that pount.  It could have happened.  I literally had to be helped out of the place.

Were you drunk enough that, had your friend been feeling devilish and told you the next morning that none of it had ever happened and that you must have been dreaming, you might have believed him for a second? I once convinced a friend that he'd had sex with some guy at a party while he was drunk, and he believed it for a long time. It was pretty funny.

Anyway, man...you make me feel like I should move out to LA just so I can have opportunities like that. Between meeting Q and getting a writing deal...sheeeeit. You go, bro!

Thankfully I do remember what happened, that's when I was still *with it*.  The ride home and what happened when we got there is a big haze (I had to scroll through my cell phone to see who I drunkenly called).  I have a serious problem calling people when I'm shitfaced.  I need to get a breathalizer attached to my phone or something.

Thanks.  The Manson quote was from an MTV new year's countdown one year.  He was being interviewed before performing and he blurted it out b/c she was onstage.  The goof VJ had no idea what to do/say.  Or do you mean the animation?  That's Michael Bolton damaging the fax machine in 'Office Space.'

I think at some point everyone has expressed their want to fist Mandy Moore.

But anyway, good story. Maybe it's just me but I find it so weird that one day you're talking to this guy and the very next you're watching a movie that he made. If everything works out for you, he'll be doing the same.  :wink:
