Soon, soon, you're a balloon
Juno to be released December 14. (Big ups to Cinematical for the ongoing support.)
Other fun announcements to come. You know what? December 14 is not a messin'-around release date. It's kind of a scary release date. It's a we-believe-in-you release date. I believe in me, but I also believe in Crystal Light, so it seems my trust is easily won.
The title of this post is a reference to a Mr. Show sketch. I couldn't find it on YouTube (after an admittedly half-assed search), so you can watch this genius instead: Monks vs. Fat Kids.
Here are some questions I keep getting asked. My answers are in bold. Imagine a deep, authoritative voice.
1.) Have you seen the movie? Yes.
2.) What did you think? My eyes were rolled back in my head most of the time. PLEAZHURE. Seriously, it's hard to be objective about something you squeezed out of your own pores, but I will say that Jason Reitman should have SYLVANIA tattooed on his ass because he's so fucking brilliant.
3.) Michael Cera is going to be famous now. I knowz. He and Jonah Hill are on about a zillion billboards here in L.A. with their cutie-cute faces that I wish to seize and kiss. It's fortuitous that the rest of us slobs get to hitch a ride on this swelling wave of Cera-mania. I remember Mr. Cera talking about Superbad on our first day of shooting. But I didn't really think about it at the time, because my head had recently exploded and I was blindly plucking skull fragments off the ground.
4.) Where's Jonny? Right now? Somewhere in New Mexico, watching James Bond and eating PBJ on a Comfort Inn quilt.
