My soundtrack question is: why "A Well-Respected Man" instead of "A Dedicated Follower of Fashion"?

Also, I loved Michael Cera in Arrested Development, and in Superbad, and in Juno, but I'm ready to see him do something different.


The soundtrack is awesome, bought and love it. It is the most played item on the iPhone right now.


The 70's, 80's and 90's weren't all that different. And since that's when almost all the screenwriters of today grew up, that's why these things look so similar. The teens of today seem a lot different than what this very very late twenty something remembers. It's when those kids start writing publishable stuff that things are going to change.

I think.

Lance, all I have to do is go to visit my family in Cape May County NJ, and I am in 1977. Leaving the city is like going into a time machine. You go back a year in time every ten miles you get outside of a major American city.

You and everyone else, apparently: the soundtrack was the top-selling record in the country last week.
