If you’re present at the time that something is being created than what you’re seeing is always going to look like a mistake. The definition of making something means that it wasn’t there before. That means that you’re doing something new. Of course, you’re creating something. In the end if what you get looks like just another TV show, good for us. It’s a derivative medium. Every TV show shouldn’t ask the question, “What is TV?” Like we wanna turn off our brains and watch TV. I think the inherit problem with big business television and movies is the executives. I think the problem is that they shouldn’t be anywhere near where things are being made because to them it’s always going to feel dangerous. They’re always going to say “sorry, wait you can’t do that. That doesn’t look like Mickey Mouse what you’re drawing.” Yeah cause I’m not done, dipshit. Of course what does it look like? Looks like 3 circles right now. It’s gonna look like Mickey Mouse in a little bit just shut the fuck up. Go eat a chicken or something.

I put an unhealthy amount of stock in the opinions of strangers, that’s exactly what makes me do stupid things, and, poetically, that’s what makes the punishment so effective. Thirty people a day calling me an asshole makes me know and feel, in my heart, that I am an asshole. I’m a real ‘customer is always right’ kind of guy in that regard.

Does a hundred people telling you you’re awesome make you realize how awesome you are then?

There were 30 million people watching the Oscars. With ratings like ours, if one-tenth of a percentage of them decided to Google “Jim Rash” out of curiosity, it could double our ratings. Also, if someone’s cat jumps on the remote, you know that could set things in a whole different direction, too.
