operaoutontheturnpike:

AVC: What are some books or movies that have had an influence on the show and its world?

MS: Well, there are many. There’s a little bit of Rushmore, I think, in terms of a character who likes to be involved in everything and do a million things. Part of our creation myth of Leslie [Knope] is that she sleeps three and a half hours a night, and she’s always taking community-center classes and rec-center classes and also teaching them. In “Road Trip” there’s a line that we cut where, when Ann has found out that she was dumped by Chris a week earlier and is really freaking out, they go to the Snakehole Lounge and get drunk. We had this line that we really liked we just had to cut for time where Ann’s leaving and she goes, “All right, I’m gonna go home and go to sleep and not leave my house for two days,” or something, and Leslie said, “I’ll be at your house tomorrow at 7 a.m. to play tennis.” She probably can’t play tennis; she can’t do everything expertly, but she is always doing whatever it is. There’s a lot of Jason Schwartzman’s Rushmore character, I think, in her. 

I didn’t think I could love this show any more.

[Impossible Soul] is sort of the centrepiece in the album. It definitely had a lot of challenges, because it’s sort of structured like a symphony or a concerto. It’s one piece but it has multiple movements. Even though it’s a pop song and it’s very dance-y, it still has an old world classical aesthetic. In some ways it requires the micromanagement a composer would have for a piece with an orchestra. […] It’s everything you know. I still have that desire to do what Wagner called the “complete work”. I want the song to contain the universe, and the universe to be contained in the song. It’s an impossible task, an impossible goal, but I’ll die trying.

I went up to him and said, “You look a lot like Jared Leto. Do you know who Jared Leto is?” He said, “I am Jared Leto.” I wasn’t ready for that. So all I could manage to say was, “Your beauty in Requiem for a Dream detracted from the narrative.”
He thanked me and walked away.

Stephen: I don’t know how to break this deadlock. I just, I just don’t know what to do. Ezra, do you have any ideas?
Ezra: You know what? I don’t think music should be a competition. The Black Keys album is great. You should vote for them.
Stephen: Wow, that is very gracious of you. Black Keys, do you have anything to say?
Dan: You know, we agree. You should vote for us.
Ezra: What the fuck?! I thought we were being nice?
Patrick: You thought wrong, sucker!
Ezra: I’m gonna bash those ironic glasses right through your skull.
Dan: Bring it on, Cape Cod!
Stephen: Gentlemen! Gentlemen! Gentlemen! Leave some for daddy.

Liz Lemon…

That reminds me, I still haven’t seen his latest episode of Buzzcocks.  Must do that immediately.
