Consider what people think of you, but don’t be afraid of what people think of you.
Beastie Boys and David Bowie are two of my favorite artists.
On ‘Workaholics,’ I feel like I’m just hanging out with my buddies being filmed, but on ‘Mindy,’ I’m around professional funny people who act. Guys like Chris Messina, who are the real deal. I watch what they do and put my own spin on it.
I watch so much TV, it’s sad. I watch ‘Happy Endings’, ’30 Rock’, ‘Parks and Rec’, ‘The Office’, ‘Eagleheart’, ‘Children’s Hospital’. ‘Modern Family’ I guess I’m still kinda watching.
It was actually the movie ‘Rushmore’ that made me first realize that I could try writing, but ‘Cheers’ is the best show ever. The writers on that show created a relationship that writers today still fail to rip off successfully: the Sam and Diane.
Whenever I watch a show and twentysomethings have a lot of ‘Star Wars’ references, I know it’s written by a 40-year-old dude.
To get what you want out of life, all you can really do is find out who you are, and do that.
I’m un-smiteable. That’s something I realized very young.
Resume? I wish I had a resume. And if I did, I wouldn’t scrub anything from it. Who cares?
Practice being curious; want to know things; ask questions.
I’m not a highly outgoing person. I’m pretty guarded when you first meet me. But being in a Speedo for my entire life growing up, because I was a swimmer, and being naked in front of people now, doesn’t really bother me.
Back in college, I remember shooting stupid videos with my friends. It would be us going around town in capes pretending we were superheroes.
I’m not patient at all. I avoid writer’s block by writing. I power through with a bad version, so I can move on, and usually once I’ve gotten to the next scene, I’ll discover what was missing from the bad version scene. Then I can easily rewrite it to get back on the right path.
The worst thing you can do to a Juggalo is not know about their weird subculture.
Portishead’s production is just insane beats you would expect to be on a KRS-One album. But then there’s this little white girl with an angel voice singing over it. It was a cool juxtaposition. I like ‘It’s A Fire.’ That’s a chill song with kind of a military drum thing going on, like a drummer boy.
