It was probably nothing but it felt like the world.

Don Jon Theme (Midnight Acoustic Version)


So in honor of Don Jon opening tomorrow, here’s a little video that Joe shot in the REC room after a long day of recording the score. It was late at night and Jonny Rodgers had finished his guitar parts for the movie when we grabbed a couple acoustic guitars and recorded an impromptu version of my theme for the film. Joe caught it on tape and we present it now for your visual and auditory pleasure. The actual score sounds drastically different, but this piece ended up closing out the credits so you’ll hear it if you stay ‘til the end:)

Hope you enjoy the movie: Nationwide tomorrow!

Almost midnight here in NY.  Perfect.

The characters on ‘The League’ are bad people who just keep on being terrible without caring about the repercussions, and that’s what makes them the perfect heirs to George and Jerry.
There’s always that thing where somebody in the audience comes to me and says “I haven’t seen Shaun of the Dead,” and somebody else is like “Ugh.” I’m like, “Don’t ‘Ugh’ them; you should envy them. It’s never too late to see a movie for god’s sake.”

Edgar Wright

FOR GOD’S SAKE

I had a really solipsistic day the other day. Too bad none of you were there.

If you don’t like where you are, move on. You are not a tree.

It’s hard to explain puns to kleptomaniacs because they always take things literally.

A ceramics teacher announced on opening day that he was dividing the class into two groups. All those on the left side of the studio, he said, would be graded solely on the quantity of work they produced, all those on the right solely on its quality.

His procedure was simple: on the final day of class he would bring in his bathroom scales and weigh the work of the “quantity” group: fifty pound of pots rated an “A”, forty pounds a “B”, and so on. Those being graded on “quality”, however, needed to produce only one pot — albeit a perfect one — to get an “A”.

Well, came grading time and a curious fact emerged: the works of highest quality were all produced by the group being graded for quantity.

It seems that while the “quantity” group was busily churning out piles of work — and learning from their mistakes — the “quality” group had sat theorizing about perfection, and in the end had little more to show for their efforts than grandiose theories and a pile of dead clay.

I’ve heard this story before and it strikes me as so helpful in terms of how we think about making things. Make now and make often. Waiting for perfect is the death of creativity.
