The Circle Is Unbroken

I watched Thumbsucker tonight. In an apparent conspiracy, they also featured a couple artists for their soundtrack: The Polyphonic Spree and Elliot Smith. It relates to the rest of the world, though, when Elliot Smith covers Cat Stevens' "Trouble" which is also prominent in Harold and Maude. Harold and Maude brings us to Bud Cort, who cameoed in one of the last (hopefully just til someone else picks them up) episodes of Arrested Development. They had a tv show called Judge Reinhold, starring Judge Reinhold; when that fell through they tried a trial show called Bud Cort, starring Bud Cort. Any who have seen The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou might remember that the bond agent from the production company (the accountant who is taken hostage) is also Bud Cort. Bud Cort also does a fine job in a great ensemble performance in The Million Dollar Hotel, one of Klaralyn Gatz' favorites. Speaking of Steve Zissou, "Bill Murray" is a track on Gorillaz Feel Good Inc. EP.
