I can't relate to 99% of humanity.
So sayeth Steve Buscemi as Seymour, hero extraordinaire of Ghost World. Well, I can certain relate to this news from Coming Soon: Steve Buscemi will be making an uncredited cameo in Art School Confidential. What's Art School Confidential, you ask? Well, Johnny, it's only the next Terry Zwigoff movie adapted from a Dan Clowes graphic novel.
Terry Zwigoff. Dan Clowes. Steve Buscemi. Last time they all got together, they made a little movie called Ghost World, which, as well all know, was the finest adaptation of a "comic book" ever put onto the big screen. Yeah, you heard me Judge Dredd. Wouldn't it be supercool if Buscemi was actually playing Seymour in this new flick? I can only keep my fingers crossed.

What are we, in slow motion here?! What are ya, hypnotized? Have some more kids, why don't you? For Christ's sake, would you move!?
Yeah, well it's simple for everybody else - give 'em a Big Mac and a pair of Nikes and they're happy! I just can't relate to 99.9% of humanity.
Let the machine get it. I have no desire to talk to anyone who would be calling me...
Ghost World's Seymour, the philosopher king.
