"Hiya Tony. Two or three?" "Two, two, gimme two, that’s good."

Pizza in the movies. (Via Metafilter.)

It's too early for a slice (night fever?). But pizza movies are good!

Maybe you'll get a good slice on your your San Francisco photo walk. Sourdough pizza?

Left out 'Goldfinger'....

Oddjob...

He could toss a pizza pie, that guy.

Joyce Davenport: You know it's just a term of endearment, not an ethnic slur..... pizza man.
Furillo: Sometimes it doesn't seem that way.
Joyce Davenport: Well how can I make it up to you?
Furillo: Just talk into the calzone.

They missed "pizza as setting and central moving element of plot", as in Mystic Pizza and "pizza as object of sexual fetish", as in Dodgeball.

If you cannot come hear Annie at Stanford, here are the notes for her talk!

Good afternoon. (Try to look humble. Stutter a little and remember to move hair around as if vlogging.)

I am not a really a law blogger! What I do has much more meaning. (Note to self: say that with emotion! Then blog later about being emotional.) I have lots of critics. (Remember to look hurt. Very hurt. But don't cry!!)

They do not understand what I do! If you like me, you understand. But I am not a law blogger. I hope you understand that. (Say understand with deep emotion!) I don't even know why I am on this panel of law bloggers. Did I mention that I am not a law blogger. I am a perfromance artist. But the art critics do not understand me.

Project blog on screen. Humbly, mention site meter. Consider using the word humble.

I asked my uncle Nunzio why so many Italians are named Tony. He told me that "When they got offa the boat from Italia, they all had TO. NY. written on their foreheads so they wouldn't getta lost." Go figure.

You got that wrong, Art. I'm a pertomance artist.

Fred said...

Pertomancy? Is that, like, influencing the world through a deep understanding of cuteness? Does it involve and Hello Kitty?

"and" -> "any"

How can you talk about pizza in the movies and not have "I Love You to Death" with Tracy Ullman and Kevin Kline.
