It's really not worth it. I tried it twice and no responses. In his book, you'll be just another fan.

slice is saying the letter said nothing but the usual pep-talk sentence., keep on ___, ____. u know, "keep on trucking, man!" or "keep on fuckin, dirk!". verbing, noun, is just filling in the space for the type of word that would go in there. verb is an action, noun is a name.

thats why you need to write him a letter that you will be his assistant for free and you will clean his house for free and shit so he can let you work with him.

although I love PTA's movies, and I know you guys hate the man I'm about to mention, but Kevin Smith is super cool about keeping in contact with his fans.  That is why he will probably always remain my favorite director.

i don't think that should be a reason to make a director good...  just a good and funny public personality. same (kinda) with Roger Avary.  they keep in touch with their fans and constantly update their respective websites but they're not delivering too many goods.

i've heard some mean stories that ocurred on the set of Jay and Silent Bob, tho..

maybe it's propaganda, i don't care, but it's  on www.jayandsilentbobstrikeback.com
context, context, context.

haha, classic (and so true)


At any rate, I wrote Paul a letter after Magnolia. It was kinda gushy and almost fanboy, and of course I called Hard Eight "Sydney"... whadda ya gonna do, I was in film school, depressed as hell, and the only thing that made me consistently happy was Paul's movies. At any rate, I told him that one day I hoped to make a film that he would enjoy as much as I enjoyed his. And blah, blah, blah. I didn't expect a response, and didn't get one. But it made me feel good to write it...
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.
