Cookie Monster

MrBlond (5k image)My friend Bill asked me to go with him to a press conference that was being held at "Video Archives", his local neighborhood video store. Bill knew I was a film buff. He told me there was a guy that used to work in the video store that had made a film. I had never heard of Quentin Tarantino but figured it was good for a laugh so I went.

Couldn't see very well. Had some eye infection so no contact lens and I didn't have glasses. I could see good enough to think "hey, isn't that Sean Penn's brother up there with him?"

Can't remember a damn thing they talked about. I do remember that it was really well catered. They had cookies baked in the shape of an ear with red frosting. I had not seen "Resevoir Dogs" yet so I didn't get the ear reference (in fact, when I did see it I turned it off in disgust when Mister Blond cuts the cop's ear off.) These cookies were literally the best cookies I have ever had. Couldn't get enough of them. As everybody listened to Tarantino I jacked the cookie tray. Stuffed my pockets with about 30 ear cookies. Man, they were great.

Bill told me a few stories about Tarantino working in the video store:

  1. Bill's wife would avoid Tarantino when she went to return videos. I guess he was so enthusiastic about film that it was hard to get him to stop talking. She would duck down behind the video racks, sneak in and then rush out. After Tarantino hit the big time she would tell Bill: "I can't believe that loser made it!"

  2. Bill would be in the store renting videos and these guys in suits would be there talking to Tarantino about financing a film.

  3. A guy brought in a tape that had been under the seat of his car. It was a couple months late. When he refused to pay and walked out Tarantino followed him out into the parking lot where they argued some more. Tarantino slammed the guy's head into a pole giving the guy a bloody nose.


The Chinese Way

killbill (3k image)After looking at a couple articles Anthony sent me I'm predicting that Tarantino's film "Kill Bill" is going to be hugely successful (well, anyway--I will go see it):

"...Tarantino has made his task all the harder because he's resolved to make Kill Bill in what he calls "the Chinese Way"... Digital effects are out. "That shit looks good, but it looks like a computer did it," he shrugs. "I'd rather have it look good and look like a cool '70s thing..."

"...I'm really particular about the blood, so we're using a mixture depending on the scenes. I say, 'I don't want horror movie blood, all right? I want Samurai blood.' You can't pour this raspberry pancake syrup on a sword and have it look good. You have to have this special kind of blood that you only see in Samurai movies..."

Tarantino is quite a director! Its quite likely that his film will rake in big $$.
