New year, new blog.Posted: January 20, 2011
I started writing about my movie Interplanetary (and other stuff) at “Everybody on Mars is Dead” in 2007. I never intended for that to be my permanent blog, but as production and post-production on Interplanetary went on about three years longer than originally expected… well, it basically became my permanent blog.
Welcome to “Tacos and Beer.”
I’ll continue to write about Interplanetary, of course, but as that movie makes its way into the world, I expect the bulk of my posts here will be about other projects–some movie-related, some non-movie-related (for example, my band Delicate Cutters has a new album coming out later this year on Skybucket). And I’ll be writing about my pop culture obsessions (movies I didn’t make, TV, and gadgets, to name a few).
In case anybody is curious, I’m calling the blog “Tacos and Beer” because…
- Interplanetary producer John White’s post-wrap rallying cry was often “Tacos and beer!” (We showed up at Rojo many times with fake blood on our hands.)
- This will be a blog about things I like, and I like tacos and beer.
To ease the transition from “Everybody on Mars is Dead,” and to front-load the new blog with some content, I went ahead and copied all of the 2011 “Everybody…” posts to “Tacos and Beer.”
One more note: many thanks to Chris Hilleke for taking the photo of me that I used for the “Tacos and Beer” header banner.

Take a relatively obscure story about England’s King George VI, tell it with first-class actors and bold, exciting cinematography, and you get The King’s Speech. You also get a movie that’s a “crowd-pleaser” in the best sense of the phrase.
And here’s a KillerReviews.com podcast that features a very in-depth (and positive) Interplanetary review. The Interplanetary stuff starts around the 24:50 mark.
And you can now “like” Interplanetary on Facebook.
