Letters! We Get Letters!

Dear Representatives of, I visited you site as was interested in film "Black Book's riotous Inside the Actor Love/Hate Studio session..." by Screenwriter Paul Thomas Anderson. I was very surprised and disillusioned to find out the link to the cigarettes web-store ptanderson.com on the page as I'm a non-smoker.

This whole situation is disappointing because the subject of this film is against smoking.

That's why I kindly ask you to remove this link from your site! With
hope for your cooperation and understanding to this matter!
Best regards,

Sure enough, the URL for what I once called "the blow-away best 'unofficial' filmmaker fansite around", Cigarettes & Coffee, [after his first short], has been taken over by a cigarette retailer.

Perhaps there was a trademark dispute with Mr Anderson, or perhaps the bigtime studio lawyers behind Jim Jarmusch's Coffee & Cigarettes muscled them into changing it. You know what a Hollywood monkey Jarmusch is.

In any case, the fansite is now called Cigarettes & Red Vines, and can be found at cigarettesandredvines.com. Can't imagine any trademark problems with that one.

PTAnderson.com is now Cigarettesandredvines.com. Please adjust your links accordingly. Thank you.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
