Q:How do I stop myself from procrastinating?
New season in 2016!
The new segs will be set in the present day and continue storylines established in the second season. Lynch will direct each episode, and he and Frost are currently writing scripts. It will “not be a remake or reboot,” Frost told Variety, which noted that ”the passage of 25 years will be an important element in the plot.” (Variety)
It’s here: Paul Thomas Anderson’s 'Inherent Vice' Official Trailer
Anderson also gave the first interview about this film, a Thomas Pynchon adaptation:
Along with The Long Goodbye, PTA was also inspired by Kiss Me Deadly and The Big Sleep, film noirs whose “plausibility rarely mattered as much as the pleasure of the filmmaking.”“ ‘North by Northwest’?” he said. “Tell me again how he gets to the middle of the field with a plane after him? I can’t. How does he get to Mount Rushmore? I don’t know, but it’s great.”Mr. Anderson said his adaptation came into focus when he recalled an old quote from “Chandler or Hammett or one of those guys who said the point of a plot in a detective movie is to get your hero to the next girl to flirt with.” After that, he said, his approach became, “When’s the next girl or funny bit going to happen?”On top of those more formal influences, PTA turned to the sight gags and physical comedy of Zucker Bros. films as a filmic equivalent for the humor in the book.“I thought,” Mr. Anderson explained, “What’s something I’ve seen that can get close to that amount of great visual information and all these things going on in the frame?”The piece goes on to verify that (…) PTA also wrote a new ending for the movie, its biggest difference from the book.“ ‘Police Squad!’ and ‘Top Secret!’ are what I clued into,” he said, referring to collaborations by the slapstick maestros David and Jerry Zucker. “We tried hard to imitate or rip off the Zucker brothers’ style of gags so the film can feel like the book feels: just packed with stuff. And fun.”

This is both so unexpected and awesome! I’m a very happy person to know that one of my childhood heroes has seen and liked my “updated version” of a beautiful piece of prose of his (Who Could That Be At This Hour?, p.71, by the way).
(The reason I just wrote “updated version,” though, is because that’s literally all I had the time to write before I had to run to catch a bus, as I knew I’d return to my computer after the deadline. But I guess it fits as a title all the same.)
I’m excited to see the other winning entries, as there are indeed many to choose from.

Photo 2 (August 18, 2014): “Okay, fuck it, I got the haircut, now I gotta find ‘em trousers. Then I’ll get all the hula girls.” —Probably Jack White
