While Moriarty often gets stuck with a bad wrap about his overcoat and bucket he takes to every screening of every film he's ever gone on... It's really part of his ongoing quest to conquer the world. Ya see. Every spare moment of his life must be spent... and I do mean SPENT. Ya see... He's cloning little Mini-Moriarty's... and they are the fruit of his loins. Well... In Moriarty's research of sinema, he has of course become a die hard fan and lover of all things PEE WEE. Hell, Pee Wee is so beloved that I know grown women that want his children. I'm serious. One of them was here tonight and when I told her that Pee Wee had a starring movie in the works... she was almost willing to let me impregnate her. And that's disgusting. So do not underestimate the sheer hysteria this news will cause in people around you. Be happy... be afraid... but be... I'm drunk, I don't know what I'm typing. But the screen seems to be filling up. That's good... I think, um... Oh yeah... Moriarty is below... You should probably read it... or not. I don't know. Did I tell you about the time my Mother hit me in the head with her purse after I nailed her with a yellow snowball?
Hey, Head Geek...
Just wanted to drop you a quick line, since I don't know if this story caught your attention yet or not. As far as I'm concerned, it's tremendous news. During the NY junket of MYSTERY MEN this last week, one of the questions that Paul Reubens was asked frequently was whether or not we'd ever see Pee Wee Herman again.
I'm sure most of us know the reason that Pee Wee was retired originally. I remember the summer before Paul's arrest, when I was working at a laserdisc store in the San Fernando Valley. Paul used to come in on occasion, and it was shocking to see him up close. He had the long hair, the full beard. I thought he looked very cool, but he wasn't Pee Wee in the slightest. Then, after the scandal, it seemed like we'd never see the beloved character again.
All that has just changed, and I couldn't be happier. There's a new Pee Wee Herman film in development now at Disney, and it sounds like it should give us all insight into Paul's version of what happened to him. He's described it as being about Pee Wee becoming very famous, and what happens to his life as a result of that fame.
Believe me, Harry... I'm on this project like white on rice. I will find out whatever there is to find out, and report back when I hear more. Until then...
