I just squirted a little.

Think you can do it again if we need a close-up?

It's fun to read that interview from the perspective of the present--and then read it as if it was 1997 and we didn't know squat about this young, cocky filmmaker.   Thanks for the share!

Loved the part where he starts describing what will be What Do Kids Know in Magnolia and the interviewer thinks he never worked on the real life show.

And wow that was a hard deflect when the subject of his mother came up.

What was it about?

I think somebody was sworn to vengeance.

Maybe I should have alerted the Smithsonian.  Breaks my heart every time I think about how I could be chillin' on an authentic piece of cinema history. :yabbse-cry:

"Maurice t.t. Rodriguez"

His lower-case middle initials are such a specific choice.  What's the significance?

I'll put this here, cuz I'm not sure where else it should go.   

Very cool.

Auction of Ricky Jay's astounding collection of magic books, ephemera, and curiosities

Wonder if Paul would bid on something...

Just occurred to me:  I wonder if there is a Ricky/Reed connection?  Did Reed do magic in The Dirk Diggler Story??

I havent seen The Dirk Diggler story in awhile, but I think theres definitely a connection. Remember on the commentary how Paul found it so funny that one of the people Reed is showing his shitty magic tricks to at some point is a bemused Ricky Jay? Hes definitely the real life inspiration for why Paul has Reed do magic, but I wouldnt say it goes further than that.

So nice to see her acknowledge the anniversary.   And huge smiles on Reilly and Reynolds as they shake hands.   Wish I'd been there...
