Paneling in a secret room made almost entirely of maroon velvet.
“In his entourage, everybody smokes weed from the beginning of the day to the end,” explained Korine. “So we’re inside this house in St. Petersburg, and the fucking weed smoke was so insane and Gucci was basically catatonic. I was like, ‘Gucci, you’ve got to have sex with this chick now!’” How did he receive the news? “He wanted her to ride him so he wouldn’t have to do any physical labor.”
For a while, that worked. “So we’re shooting the sequence, and as he is getting fucked, I start to hear snores,” said Korine. “He had literally passed out! And she was riding his dick the whole time. I’d never in my life filmed a sex scene where the dude was sleeping … and she was on top of him for a good 45 minutes.”
And yes, that’s the take that made it into the film. Laughed Korine: “At the end, he woke up and was like, ‘I feel real nice. I feel like Mozart’s on my dick.’ And that was it, and he went back to sleep.”
Tipping my 40 to your memory. RIP.
Anonymous asked: Just got laid off. Any advice?
Man, I’m very sorry to hear that. That is terrible, and I wish you the best.
There are about a million different ways to answer this question, depending on one’s circumstances, but here’s what I did immediately after getting fired last year:
1. Called my mom and told her not to freak out and that I was going to be fine - Because my mom is a worrier, I waited about 45 minutes after hanging up with her the first time and called her again to reassure her I was going to be OK. She said, “I’m so glad you called again. I was trying to lie down for a nap but I’m just so on edge now.”
2. Deposited my severance check - Hopefully you got a severance check. If not, to hell with that company.
3. Got a haircut - Try this. It feels good. I turned off my phone, sat down in the barber’s chair, and closed my eyes. When the lady asked how my day was going, I said, “It’s really great,” and I 90 percent meant it.
4. Showered - Take a hot-ass shower and just soak in there for a bit. Bring a beer if you’d like.
5. Emailed people about jobs - Depending on what you do, this might not be possible, but I emailed back and forth with some people about new job opportunities just a few hours after I was fired. It was a Friday and I wanted to get some new things going by Monday so I’d have a valid reason to get up at a reasonable hour instead of sulking in bed.
6. Told my friends to meet me at the bar - This is an obvious last step (unless you don’t drink; in which case go get pizza or something). Like 25 of us—some of whom had been fired with me—got together on a big back patio and just goofed off until we got kicked out. It was a mostly pleasant night and I only felt sad like three times.
After all that, probably the best advice I got was when my dad called me and said, “When the tornado hits, you can either shake your fist at the tornado, or you can start to rebuild your fucking house.” I took that to heart. You might be really tempted to sit around, drink wine, and resent your former employer (sometimes I still want to do that), but screw that. I found that the best I felt after getting fired was when I was doing new work and new projects with new people, which was a great way to prevent myself from dwelling on and feeling bad about old stuff. Free yourself of that bitterness, move forward, and make those fucking guys regret the day they ever thought it prudent to let you go. I am in your corner.

A Greyhound bus bound for New York City had to pull over and evacuate Friday because it was infested with roaches that dropped from the ceiling and skittered across seats and the floor, terrorizing riders.
Mothers tried to shield their children and riders jumped into the aisle of the bus as roaches bolted out of cracks and crevices, seemingly all at once, about 15 minutes after the 10 a.m. bus left Atlantic City, passengers told NBC 4 New York.
“All of a sudden the roaches came out of nowhere, they were on the floor, they were falling form the ceiling,” said Andy Rodriguez, a passenger.
Tracy Harmon told NBC 4 New York that “people were shrieking and shaking roaches off.”
“It was terrible,” she said.
Also, this line: “The bus was carrying 48 people and an unknown number of roaches, according to Greyhound.”
On the list of Things It Is Shitty to Find Out About on Twitter, that you’re facing a federal indictment comes somewhere between “your mother/father has died” and “you’ve been fired.”
