I'm Not There
The whole time I was watching this movie all I could think about was how much I wished I was not there.

I hung out with my buddy Dan Schechter tonight and got inspired to listen to the podcast he had me on a while back. In retrospect, I wasn’t as awkward and inarticulate as I thought I was. If you’re a Dutch West fan I recommend having a listen; though dated, I spill the beans on some trivia I bet you didn’t know.
THE BEST "DARK KNIGHT" VIRAL MARKETING YET →
Something occurred to me just now. My sister played a concert with Pete Townshend last summer. While backstage, I was buzzed and asked one of the musicians, an older, blonde Brit named Kate if she had a boyfriend. She smiles and goes, “Oh, you’re too cute. Yes, I do. He’s right there.” And points to Pete Townshend. Tee hee! I should write a book.

The Movie Character Game
When I was upstate this week, Vince, Trav and I came up with a game where you have to match a movie character with his/her movie. We were pissing ourselves. Can you guess which characters are from which movie?

Viral Marketing for "The Dark Knight"
I’m amazed by the marketing campaign for TDK. The film is arguably the most anticipated Bat-flick of all time, what with the return of the Joker (Heath Ledger). Nolan set out to reinvent the Batman franchise applying to it a thorough degree of realism. This level of interactivity brings fans like us closer than ever before: www.whysoserious.com www.gothampolice.com ...

Kevin Smith asks Seth Rogen to be in "Zack and...
We met very briefly, about a year and a half ago, as I was leaving a meeting with Harvey Weinstein and you were entering a meeting with Harvey Weinstein. I don’t expect you to remember it, but I practically blew you over your “I throw your head at you. Fuck you!” moment in “The 40 Year Old Virgin”.
Anyway, I’m a fan, and that day, I started thinking about writing a script for you. But laze (and “Clerks II” promotional duties) got the best of me, so I never got around to writing it.
Until two weeks ago.
I know you’re probably buried in “Knocked Up” and “Super Bad” stuff at the moment, but if you’ve got an hour or two, I’d love you to read it. We’re not gonna be shooting ’til Jan/Feb ‘08, so there’s no immediate rush, I guess. I also know (or at least suspect) that you generate your own material, so I realize I’m doing you no favors, as you’re probably not hurting for work at the moment. Still, I’d love you to read it and, ultimately, be in it, so maybe we can hook up sooner or later.
This may sound like bullshit, but when I first moved to LA, I went out to meet with agencies, and one of them asked me what my goals were. I said “to be in a kevin smith movie.” That goal has not changed. I would be honored to read anything you wrote, and am truly flattered and amazed that you sent me this e-mail. I wouldn’t be a writer if it wasn’t for you and your movies. Its as simple as that. Thank you so much.

Bat for Lashes, “What’s A Girl To Do” Directed by Dougal Wilson. This isn’t particularly new but definitely a hot-stepper in the music video hustle of 2007. *Sidenote: Check out the electric blue starchild eye make up. Me gusta. — travissatten
My winter reading:
“9/11 Coin”, the latest from Dutch West. Props to Eddie Porter for visual FX, Vin and Matt to writing it, and Vin for lending his whiskey-parched American larynx.
“Norm’s Lazer Rifles”, shot by Vin, edited by Sam and written and directed by me for Dutch West on SuperDeluxe. Special effects by Eddie Porter.

My friend Dan Schechter who directed me in “Goodbye Baby” is the host of The Renart Films Podcast. It’s my favorite podcast, not only because he’s interviewed everyone from unknown actors like me to famous directors like Steve Barron (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, “Coneheads”, “Billie Jean” music video), but he asks his guests questions...
