Get Shorty TV Show

Here’s a link to the IMDB for the 2017-2019 show:

I may have to track this down and torture myself. I am running out of other things to watch…

Chili Palmer Credit

A small correction, Ernest ‘Chili’ Palmer is credited as “Bones’ Buddy #2”. It is the last acting credit shown.

Ghost World – The Graphic Novel

Ghost World is based on a graphic novel of the same name released in 1997 by Daniel Clowes. The graphic novel was a collection of 8 comic books originally released as issues 11-18 of Clowes’ comic series Eightball.

You Do it to Yourself

If you didn’t know the Radiohead song I was refering to was “Just” that was part of their album The Bends released in 1995. I was a few years off. Also, the song and video, still AWESOME.

Art School Confidential

Art School Confidential was a film released in 2006 starring Max Minghella, John Malkovich, and Anjelica Huston and a few other face you would recognize. It was based on another creation by Daniel Clowes but this time it was a 4-page comic that was part of issue #7 of Eightball.
