-- Jack Handey
This is beautiful and what's most important to me:
And giving my cat an occasional Saltine.
I love Don Delillo and George Saunders -- basically anybody who's bright, funny, has a big heart and can write a dazzling sentence.
I watch, re-watch and re-re-watch movies all the time. I really like Robert Altman, Adam Curtis, Melville, Herzog, and Terence Malick. The Jerk is perfect. The Long Goodbye is perfect. Airplane! is perfect. I usually like Charles Bronson for some reason. He's like a vengeful old-testament god who's on our side. Everybody needs one of those sometimes.
I think Albert Brooks is the funniest person alive.
And i love cop shows from the 70s--what a golden age for exotic pets and streetwise sidekicks.
And if you're a beach bum private investigator living on a houseboat you won in a card game. I'd definitely probably get along with you.
Or just if you can help me spell words like restaurant and liaison.
