The Bret Easton Ellis podcast. First up, Kanye West.
Well, The Canyons has pretty much lived down to most of the expectations that media people had for it. Its gotten pretty poor reviews, and only made about $30k at the box office (in VERY limited release).
It seemed to me that it was never meant to have much commercial success, so maybe thats OK. Maybe the spectacle of what happens when you cast a porn star and an off-her-rocker washed up starlet was part of the whole performance. The experience of The Canyons isn’t just what you saw on screen, it was all the gossip site news about the filming as well.
So the server went down – hard – and we are just now getting things back online. Most of the content is back up, still working on the layout. On with the show.
Can’t tell what to make of this project yet. This video and the previous trailer don’t appear to take itself too seriously, but the acting in these clips looks horrendous – and not in an ironic way. Maybe these aren’t real scenes? Maybe these are just put-ons for the ads?
Lindsay Lohan misses Canyons work date. Shock! Hey Bret, you hired Lindsay fucking Lohan – of course she is going to be unprofessional and miss work days.
Patrick Bateman has just headed over to Lindsay Lohan’s hotel to confront her as to why she missed her fucking ADR on “The Canyons” today…

I’d also do an inventory of any jewelry and clothing her character got to wear during filming.
