We got HBO when I was 7. My parents would be in bed, 'Children of the Corn' would be on at midnight, and I'd watch it on mute.
I think that, like the show 'Game of Thrones,' our fascination with power struggles is pretty unanimous.
I had a really hard time in Orange County. I was a nerd. I was watching foreign cinema when I was 13 and talking about how 'Hope and Glory' should be a foreign film.
When I was in middle school, we had moved from Texas to Orange County. I didn't fit in, and it was pretty lonely.
I never had an imaginary friend, just imaginary circumstances. I was so into the Indiana Jones movies, and I would constantly reenact circumstances. I broke my left arm three times, two of which were me trying to be Indiana Jones.
I just went to your typical public schools, and my dad would take us to the movies every week, or he'd buy scalped tickets to San Antonio Spurs games. I remember I was four or five years old and my parents, who were very young, took us to see The Police in Austin, and Iggy Pop opened.
