A revealing New Yorker article on Larry David the, by the sound of it, interminably grumpy, co-creator of Seinfeld. Thanks to ILX’s maura for the link. I was particularly tickled to read that George’s “See, this should be a show. This is the show.” moment from The Pitch episode is based on an actual incident in a Korean deli when David and Seinfeld were just smart alecking about some of the products on the counter.

Meanwhile I feel that the societal norms regarding the coinage of familiar forms for a TV show’s name have been overstepped with “Curb Your Enthusiasm”. I constantly hear it being called “Curb” ‘ which is way too abrupt, too informal, practically rude ‘ it shows a lack of proper respect. I need a drink.
