ugh. where’s all the GOOD music these days. it’s all just rapping and beibers and directions. i miss the days where i could go into the local tavern and hoist a mighty flagon of mead to a jaunty tune on the lute of a young bard

"You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain." - The Dark Knight (2008)
Simon Pegg: Just as a measure of talking about your maturity… when we were doing the scene in The Mermaid and Nick, Eddie and I were dancing with the Marmalade Sandwich… When I was making out with Rose Reynolds, every time we’d do a snog, Edgar goes “EUGH!!!” behind the camera, and it was so distracting! “EEEUGH!!!”
Edgar Wright: I think it’s, weirdly, the heaviest sex scene I’ve ever done.
Edgar: … And I have no aspirations to be an actor…
Simon: I feel the same way about directing. I would like to direct at some point, but Edgar almost keeps me from it, because I think, what’s the point of doing it unless I have an understanding on the par with Edgar’s? And Edgar’s understanding of the medium has always been something that impressed me on such a level that I’m like “If I can’t do that, what’s the point in doing it at all?” Hopefully eventually I will try to do it, but I don’t think I’ll ever be as good as he was when he was 20.
Edgar: I’ll just stand behind Simon, going “… meh”… Or your film will be… you’ll be starring in it, and every single scene will be a kissing scene, and I’ll be like “EURGHHH!!! Simon’s kissing a girl!”
Interviewer: Could you ever direct Simon in a sex scene?
Edgar: Oh, I don’t know […] I don’t think I could do that. I’d say no.
Simon: But, weirdly enough, after we’ve done The World’s End, I did another film with Rosamund, and we had quite a graphic sex scene in that movie, and I just remember thinking “Thank god Edgar’s not here”
Edgar: *muffled scream of terror*
