JOSS WHEDON: I find that when you read a script, or rewrite something, or look at something that’s been gone over, you can tell, like rings on a tree, by how bad it is, how long it’s been in development.
NEIL GAIMAN: Yes. It really is this thing of executives loving the smell of their own urine and urinating on things. And then more execs come in, and they urinate. And then the next round. By the end, they have this thing which just smells like pee, and nobody likes it.
i am become stillness,
the violent silence and hushed tones,
the pollen of heavily scented flowers
on polished wood.
i am the faded wallpaper,
the scent of carpet cleaner.
i am aching anguish and self loathing,
painful questions that time will eventually,
i am mundane, and everyday, and not special.
