DAY 2 of Lazy Eye Theatre's 2nd Birthday Weeklong Blowout Extravaganza


PIPER:
Excuse me, Wes?



WES ANDERSON:
Yeah?



PIPER:
Having a good time?



WES ANDERSON:
Sure.



PIPER:
Did you try a Piper-Tini? It's got Kumquat in it.



WES ANDERSON:
I didn't.



PIPER:
Seriously, before you leave you have to try one of those.



WES ANDERSON:
Great. Is that why you called me over here?



PIPER:
Not really. I had a question about the dailies from the video you shot yesterday of my birthday party.



WES ANDERSON:
Great stuff, right?



PIPER:
Yeah, but I think I'm missing some videos though.



WES ANDERSON:
Really?



PIPER:
Yeah, all I saw was a shot of the birthday cake.



WES ANDERSON:
Did it look great?



PIPER:
It did. But that's all I saw. Just the cake with a the invitation beside it and a mouse in the shot.



WES ANDERSON:
Yep.



PIPER:
So... that was it?



WES ANDERSON:
What do you mean, that was it?



PIPER:
I mean, it was beautiful.



WES ANDERSON:
And you liked the music track? I got Mothersbaugh to whip up a little something.



PIPER:
Excellent.



WES ANDERSON:
Beautifully framed.



PIPER:
Of course.



WES ANDERSON:
And the slo-motion.



PIPER:
It was in slo-motion? How could you tell?



WES ANDERSON:
The mice moved very slowly.



PIPER:
That's great. But here's the thing. I was really hoping for a lot more. You know, shots of friends walking in to the party. Toasts being given. Laughing. Drinking. Hugging.



WES ANDERSON:
I don't think so.



PIPER:
So the cake is it?



WES ANDERSON:
I stand by the cake.



PIPER:
I knew I should have gotten Scorsese.

Eh. Scorsese probably would have ended up being too swoopy.

Happy Blog-Birthday, Piper! *honks annoying birthday horn*

JA said...

Plus the party would really head downhill fast when Scorsese made one of your children shoot you in the face.



PRIMALL is my word verification. The extra L is for extra lesbian tendencies!

PIPER said...

Thanks Burbanked,

Scorsese would have made someone cut an ear off and place it in a big jar. Man, that's a weenie-shrinker.

Fox said...

Hey... is this a veiled swipe at Wes Anderson for not being anything other than a visual stylist?!?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PIPER!!

PIPER said...

Fox,

No that's a blatant swipe at a brilliant filmmaker who makes a really lousy video birthday documenter.

elgringo said...

Happy birthday! Sounds like a beautiful cake!

PIPER said...

It isn't really, but Wes made it look beautiful.

Adam Ross said...

Anderson would make a lousy birthday videographer, but I think he could craft one hell of a birthday invitation card. I'm getting chills just thinking about it.

Joseph B. said...

You nailed, Wes Anderson. I hear he's EXACTLY like that.

Happy-bday Piper. Cheers.

PIPER said...

I'm sure my understanding of Wes has nothing to do with the 4 weeks I spent with him while traveling the Nile.

Thanks for the note Joseph.

How to choose a suitable target in cable and the cabal online alz? You should compensate him by giving him some cabal alz. Normal monsters; you have to lure a handful of monsters with cabal gold so that switching between them can be easier. There are many benefits to guild in cabal money. When you buy cabal alz, it is not still deal high amounts of damage.
