Even more, “THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN” on GTSC podcast 5/17/21

Paperwork. Movie detectives are busy people. They have to investigate crimes, hunt down clues, interrogate bad guys, and get into shootouts. But you know what they rarely do?…paperwork. I’m lucky to have a few friends who are cops and they tell me that often half their day (if not more) is taken up with writing reports, sitting in depositions, and filing forms. None of that sounds overly exciting, but it’s part of the job…just not in the movies. Well, I hope if you’re a police officer, the next time you see a big screen cop end the movie just walking away from the villain’s corpse, you scream, “That doesn’t happen!!”

Songs about yourself. We just watched Citizen Kane for the podcast and there’s a scene where Kane hires singers and dancers to sing a song about him. Shit, even Trump didn’t do that and he’s the biggest narcissist we’ve ever seen. I’ll hire dancers to shoot ping pong balls or singers to sing, “Whoomp, There It Is” but never a song about me. That’s a bridge too far for me.
