So since I might be getting on something of a roll with this blog, I was wondering if anyone had any questions that they wanted answered. The post title is a link to my ask box, so if you have questions, put them there. Thanks!
You have to be a tumblr user to ask me questions, so firstname.lastname@example.org works too. Or my facebook if you’re actually friends with me.
“We decided to go to Amsterdam for ten days, and we just went there and wrote this show, the three of us, and we got inspired through herbal substances and just being in a new country, and we wrote a pilot and never thought anything would happen, and then HBO really liked it.”—
-Alia Shawkat (Maeby Funke), on the genisis of a pilot she is working on with Ellen Page and Har Mar Superstar, about hipsters.
Sometimes I feel like the only person who was obsessed with Harry Potter that did not have overly-visceral reactions to the books.
Like, in my heyday I could talk Potter with the best of them, could tell you all the latest theories about the plots and recite spells and all of that, but every time I talk to someone who is like “Oh my god I was sobbing for hours when Dumbledore died,” I’m kind of like “that seems a disproportionate reaction to the death of a fictional character.” I dunno. I enjoyed them. I thought they were fun to read and think that it was good that kids were reading. But, the end of the series wasn’t the worst day of my life or anything.
