Hreinn Fridfinnsson - Attending, 1973
What the fresh fucking hell did I just look at
“I’m afraid. I’m afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I’m a… fraid. Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you’d like to hear it I can sing it for you.”
[Joel, on filmmaking] I can almost set my watch by how I’m going to feel at different stages of the process. It’s always identical, whether the movie ends up working or not. When you watch the dailies, the film that you shoot every day, you’re very excited by it and very optimistic about how it’s going to work. Then when you see it for the first time you put the film together, the roughest cut, you want to go home and open up your veins and get in a warm tub and just go away. Then it gradually, maybe, works its way back, somewhere toward that optimism you were at before.
