Cover story: The Good Life, Tim Kasher and Help Wanted Nights; Team Love still allows downloading; Wilco tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 5:29 pm October 11, 2007

Just posted, a rather long interview with Tim Kasher of The Good Life, where Tim talks about his screenplay called Help Wanted Nights, the script that the CD of the same name is sort of based on. In fact, most of the story is about the script (if you want to read a review of the album, go here) as well as life in Los Angeles, the movie industry, the Good Life and Cursive. Read the story/interview here.

Will this script ever be produced? After this interview, I’m convinced it will be, eventually. But it could take a long time, maybe even years. By then, Kasher already may have had a different script produced — he wrote three before he wrote Help Wanted Nights, and finished a new one over the summer. Anyway, go read the story, then come back and read the rest of this blog entry… we’ll wait.

Dum-de-dum-de-dum *looks down at his watch*….

Ah, you’re done. Thanks for coming back. In my opinion, Kasher should shoot some exteriors in California and then come back to Omaha and shoot the entire film in O’Leaver’s — that’s the lounge that was in my mind’s eye while reading the script.

Moving on…

You might have noticed that I added a strikethrough in yesterday’s column. It was pointed out to me by a reader and by Team Love executive Matt Maginn that I erred in saying that you can’t download Tilly and the Wall’s Wild Like Children in its entirety at anymore. You can, just like you can download some of the other Team Love releases — not all, but most. Well, a few, anyway. I screwed up by going to the site, looking at the releases pages and not finding any links to download the tracks. They’re there, you just have to search for them (and don’t bother going to the “downloads” page). Apologies to Team Love for my screw-up, and thanks to those who pointed it out. Now go to and start downloading!

Tonight at The Orpheum Theater — Wilco. Unbelievably, as of noon, the show was still not sold out (according to the One Percent Productions website). Get your tickets now ($29). Andrew Bird opens the show at 8 p.m.
