about matches?

It's Iris!

Taxi Driver?

Don't tell me

you've never seen it.

Classic Scorsese.

It's about a mentally

imbalanced Vietnam vet

and a teenage

prostitute. That's me.

It's a good character,

shows my range.

Yeah, well, directors don't want

to see 9-year-old prostitutes

when they're casting

for Toasty O's.

Come on, mister.

You're starting

to be a real drag.


Are you an Aries?


Pisces make the best lovers,

you know.


Where's Dad?



Dad, I need

to talk to you.


How many times

have I told you

that when I'm

here working,

I am surrounded by

a creative membrane?

And nothing

comes in.

Nothing escapes

creative membrane.


membranes are permeable.

What you want is a wall.

I don't ask for much

from this family,

a simple respect

for my process.


Where were you at 3:30?

Where was I at 3:30?

In some fantastically

transcended zone.

My body was like the conduit

for a higher energy.

I am completing

what might be

the most important piece

of my entire career.

No, no. No.

Not yet. Don't...

Don't touch it.

I just wanted to see what was so

important that you couldn't...

It's not ready

for judgment.

Okay, that's great,

but where should you

have been at 3:

You sound

like your mother,

consumed with time

and a schedule.

Do not tread

that path.

Remember. Remember,

it's what we do,

not when we do it.

It's the what

that's important.

This is important.


this was important, too.

What's this?

You didn't even read it.

What is this, a note?


Where were you at 3:30?!


Yeah, 3:

It usually it occurs

between 3:
00 and 4:00.

Oh! I was editing

this new piece.

Check it out!

Hello. Welcome. Bawwk!

May I take your order?

Chicken nuggets!
