Cradle Will Rock is one of my favorite films. Great story. Phenomenal cast. 

I’m going to dig up my copy and watch it for what must be the 10th+ time this weekend. 

It ties together historical figures Diego Rivera, Nelson Rockefeller, Orson Welles, John Houseman, Frida Kahlo, William Randolph Hearst and Margherita Sarfatti and stars heavy hitters including Hank Azaria, Rueben Blades, John Cusack, Joan Cusack, Cherry Jones, Carey Elwes, Phillip Baker Hall, Bill Murray, Vanessa Redgrave, Susan Sarrandon, John Tuturro, Emily Watson, Bob Balaban, Jack Black, Kyle Gass, Paul Giamatti and Gretchen Moll.

Sadly, it cannot be streamed online, even though Amazon mistakenly claims to offer it.

It’s totally worth buying.

The Complete ‘Get a Mac’ Series.

Watch a few, laugh, then listen to this oral history (or read it). The two stars are still thoroughly invested in their characters, and everyone involved has fond memories of the project, even if Steve Jobs didn’t make it easy. It sounds like there’s a wealth of ads that were made but never approved, including some with notable guest spots. I suspect we’ll never see them.

An example of one of those “lost” episodes:

John Hodgman (PC): Zach Galifianakis was in on the same day that the comedian Paul F. Tompkins was there, and both are comedic heroes of mine. Both were playing Santa Claus in two separate bits, and they obviously knew that they couldn’t both be Santa Claus, so it was a little bit tense.

Mike Refuerzo (Executive Producer): We were trying to do a holiday version. I think tonally it wasn’t right.

John Hodgman: Zach has a very distinct energy. He was a very cranky Santa. I’m not sure that they knew exactly what to do with his very cranky, weird energy, which we now understand as Galifianakis at his best.

Justin Long (Mac): It was so fucking funny. He played a drunken Santa Claus, and it was before Zach was a big thing. I was a huge fan of his.

John Hodgman: I remember they were trying to figure out what to do about Zach’s beard. They tried putting white coloring onto the beard to make him look like Santa. At one point, a suggestion started going around that maybe he needed to shave his beard, and I said, “Gentlemen, I must step in. You are talking about one of the most important beards in comedy. I cannot allow that to happen.”

Danielle Kays (Wardrobe Stylist): I can’t believe that one didn’t air.

Jason Sperling (Creative Director): It was crazy. If Steve didn’t like the spot, he didn’t care if it was a big star. The only thing that mattered was that the spots were great. Some of them, you go, “Yeah, I could see why that never aired.” Others you’re like, “Oh, that was pretty good. That easily could’ve been part of the campaign.”

These ads are still super funny and charming. Great writing and perfect casting.

Isn’t it humbling to write hundreds and hundreds of words about sexism and gender and entitlement and then remember that “Flight of the Conchords” nailed the whole displacement-of-responsibility and nice-guy rage things in, like, four sentences?

26 seconds of Paul F Tompkins singing about his tiny masonic trowel. 

This has been stuck in my head for days. I keep singing it to myself and cracking up.
