telling minor stories to avoid a major one

Linkdown: 7/15/09 by Barbecue Bros

Interview with Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter, whose show “Michael And Michael Have Issues” debuts tonight on Comedy Central (I’m pretty pumped)

AVC: But Michael And Michael is all done?
MS: Yes, this will be 100 percent in the can.
MIB: When people don’t want to watch this show, it won’t hurt our motivation for shooting it, because it will already be done.
MS: Right. We can just hide. We won’t have to go to work the next day on a sinking ship.
MIB: We will have already fled this ship.
MS: We’ll already be on dinghies rowing to shore.
MIB: Clinging precariously to driftwood.

– John Krasinski’s directorial debut Brief Interviews With Hideous Men has been picked up by IFC Studios

– Interesting story on how Back to the Future almost nuked the fridge 25 years ago
