Fox News: What's the strangest or most unusual encounter you ever had with a fan?Campbell: You know what, guys just want to smoke a doobie with me. I used to tour. When I'd tour, my wife would go, "Have fun with your guy fans."... I don't have weird encounters because it's all weird, you know? The thing that is different though is people connect me, they assume I have a great love of horror. I had a woman come up and she says, "I've got some poetry that you'll really like," and I started to read it, and it was the most terrifying material I've ever read in my life.

In my more dyspeptic moments, I wonder what Hudson Yards portends for New York’s future. Today it feels like the last spasm of the Bloomberg era, seductive and smooth and substantial, the home of some finely provocative art but fundamentally a grand gift of urban space to the global elite. Will it become a bastion of a Gilded Age that has already started to wane or the unavoidable model for the next megadevelopment and the one after that? Already the city keeps ratcheting up its scale. Today’s supertall towers are being overtaken by even bigger ones. Lessons learned at Hudson Yards, if any, will be applied at Sunnyside Yard, which is seven times the size. These thoughts lead to darker questions: Is New York ballooning into oblivion?

These musings seem almost reasonable when the new skyline glowers overhead. But then my mind drifts back to the … [Read more...] about I Have a Feeling We’re Not in New York Anymore

There are, of course, flickers of humanity, feats of ordinary heroism, and extreme courage. You watch as a hardened top Soviet official is sent to the site in complete denial, intent on maintaining party discipline and control, and over the following weeks he begins slowly to crumble inside. Not of radiation (although he had probably cut his lifespan to another five years at most); but out of a realization of how foul, incompetent, and monstrous the entire system was. One critical moment comes late in the series when he is asked a question by one of the miners about to sacrifice his life to prevent an even greater catastrophe than the original explosion. And for the first time, he tells the truth. And for the first time, the miner believes him. … [Read more...] about Good-bye, Theresa. Hello, Boris?
Oh, I can’t give you nothing! Let me tell you, I really honestly watch the show as a fan. I do my scenes and I fucking leave. Because I don’t want see it. I barely read the outline. I only read the outline just to figure out what I’m supposed to do. Because I really love to be surprised by what happens. I don’t know what happens. I don’t know shit. And I like that. I’m telling you, I was a really big Curb fan before I got on the show. And me getting on that show was an absolute blessing, man. To be able to be on my favorite show and still be on my favorite show? I really watch it as a true fan of the show. I like to watch it for the first time and laugh my ass off like the true fan I’ve always been. … [Read more...] about ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’s’ JB Smoove Teases a Leon Spin-Off: ‘We’ve Only Scratched the Surface’
