Its important to keep things realistic. And I’ve learned throughout the years living here in New York that unless you keep realistic, there’s no way you can survive. You have to keep your nose to the ground. You have to keep things in perspective. Make sure that things make sense everyday. No matter what you do, who you see, make sure that it matters. New York is not a town for pussy footers. Its not a town for people with pussies for feet. That would be really gross, and exhilarating.

A brilliant video essay/documentary to mark the 10th anniversary of David Milch's landmark HBO series ‘Deadwood.’ “A stand-alone, nearly half-hour-long piece, co-produced with HitFix, that looks at the show's style and major themes, as well as its roots in different genres, including the Western and the gangster picture. The title comes from the two-part episode that opened season two of ‘Deadwood’—a slight rewording of a Napoleon quote: ‘History is a set of lies agreed upon.’” —Matt Zoller Seitz, A Lie Agreed Upon: David Milch’s Deadwood

"Travel to the underbelly of America. Louisiana. The Gulf Coast. Purgatory, USA. A sopping, poisoned wasteland where industry and old time religion meet somewhere in the sugarcane. This is a place haunted by people - good and bad and everything in between - fractured souls who cling to the edge of society and themselves, walking contradictions struggling to get by and simply be. It’s here that two detectives - a broken stranger and a slightly bent local - get wind of something sinister. Among the roach motels and refineries, a serial killer plies his terrible trade against the put-upon: Murder as ritual sacrifice. The cane is burning in the field. The fire eats it all away."
