    I expect a full, detailed diagram of Tyler’s phases at some point.

    Tyler, if you don’t mind my asking, what type of program are you enrolling in as you return to school?

    I hear you on the issue surrounding free speech, Tyler. I’ve just finished a 3 year university degree and have found that this depends on three things, location, establishment, and type of programme. I’m not sure in which ways London would differ from LA on this, but can say that, during my first year, I studied on a very practical course at an art college. At this university, free speech was accepted, as long as it didn’t offend anyone (in other words, free speech wasn’t accepted). However, after this, I moved to a more academic university and joined a more critical and analytical programme. After moving, I noticed no problem at all with limiting student free speech; there was a wide mix of people with a wide mix of political views, but best of all, most people seemed to enjoy engaging in debates rather than shutting them down due to sensitivity. So, I think it depends; being a modern student, this is something that gets to me, but I have to say that, in my experience, sometimes the universities that seem more creative and open are the places in which ‘free speech’ feels more limited, sadly. … I’m just saying.

    Wonderful episode as always, but you guys do need to watch Reservoir Dogs again. I love Tarantino’s recent stately master period, but he’s never topped the vibrant swagger and rollicking storytelling of RD and PF.

    Smoke is terrific, I literally just watched that today before listening to this episode on my way to work (which is part of my daily routine) and, since it was next in line I decided to watch Blue in the Face immediately after Smoke and yes, it is a strange movie that is a bit scattershot.

    Having said that the final product of Blue in the Face is very charming, with a cast that is equally compelling as Smoke. It was quite the coincidence that the day I decided to watch both films this morning.

    Your discussion of Gone With The Wind reminded me of Dave Kehr’s capsule review:

    “A critic-proof movie if there ever was one: it isn’t all that good, but somehow it’s great.”

    I’ve always disliked the terms over and underrated. It just sounds so arrogant. It’s a comment other people’s opinions rather than a comment on the movie itself. You’re basically saying “everyone but me is wrong”.
