MM: What's your relationship with Paul Thomas Anderson?If you haven't listened to the WTF podcast or Paul F. Tompkins own hilariously weird Pod F. Tompkast, you really should.
PFT: I haven't seen Paul in a while...
MM: ...the director of There Will Be Blood.
PFT: That's right. I have not seen him since then.
MM: Did you do another movie? You've sort of shown up in most of his movies.
PFT: Magnolia. I did what ended up being just a voice in Magnolia. And that was it. But he's a guy that I have known off and on through Largo, the old nightclub Largo. And he started coming to Largo around the time that comedy started happening at Largo. It had been open for about a year and it was just a music club and then they started doing comedy on Monday nights. And then all the comics and the musicians started to get to know each other and appear on each others shows.
In other news, did you know that Amazon recently put Blu-rays for "Magnolia" and "Boogie Nights" on sale for $9.49 and $12.99? It's true. So if you were looking to upgrade those old DVD's, now might be a good time for that. They are magnificent.
