June 19, 1998-June 19, 2010

12 years ago today the first ever post went up on this website.  It simply read:

Paul Makes EW's It List
Age 27 Why him? After the porno-poetic thrill of Boogie Nights, which this San Fernando Valley wunderkind wrote and directed, actors are clamoring to work with him as they did for Altman. Like the trailblazing '70s auteurs, Anderson gives his films emotional texture that comes from the gut: "The scenes that truly affect people are the ones based in personal shit." 
Work habits "I write early, like 6 a.m., and I can only really write for three hours," he says. "That's because I smoke myself into a sickness. The best stuff comes in the first blast ... the idea behind writing very early is that your subconscious is still kicking ass. You're not paying attention to what you should be writing." 
Creative crutch "The biggest thing for me when I'm writing is the music. Now it's Aimee Mann and Michael Penn." And filmmakers? "Blake Edwards ... 10 is a fucking masterpiece." 
Weirdest career moment "Burt Reynolds." 
Next? Another L.A. story: "It centers around an odd occurrence in nature."

As you may or may not know, this website was originally called Cigarettes and Coffee when it started in 1999. (Remember this?) It was run and maintained by Greg Mariotti and myself. In 2005, Greg moved onto working with Cameron Crowe on his official website and I took over and re-branded it Cigarettes & Red Vines, after the Aimee Mann song which is, in part, apparently about Paul.

I thought it would be interesting to keep the previous sites posts archived on the new site as there are endless amounts of additional information and random things hidden within each. I have tried to tag them all as accurately as possible for ease of reference.

It's a miracle that I am alive today. I encountered HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV1/2) for good four (4) years, before I met the great Herbalist Valchy. I am  from New Jersey, United State of America and I was infected with the herpes virus. Herpes is a viral infection caused by the Herpes simplex virus, marked by painful, watery blisters in the skin or mucous membrane or on the genitals. This was what I suffered for good four years. I have visited CVS Pharmacy in Fresno for treatment but no improvement. I met Herbalist Valchy online while I was searching for herpes cure. I read a testimony about his work.

I was positive to the deadly Virus called herpes and I lost hope completely because I was rejected even by my closest friends. I searched online to know and inquire about a cure for herpes and I saw testimony online on how Herbalist Valchy cured so many people from Herpes virus and other similar diseases. I decided to contact the great herbalist because I know that nature has the power to heal everything. I contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural roots and herbs. After 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure is ready and he sent it to me via UPS and it got to me after 4 days. I used the medicine as he instructed (morning and evening ) and I got cured. it's really like a dream but I'm so happy that's the reason i decided to also add more comment of Him so that more people can be saved just like me and if you need his help, contact him via Email: or WhatsApp:+2347036769718 reachout to his website
