Tarantino Talks About Uma Thurman’s NY Times Story

Hard feelings from Uma after a car crash during the making of Kill Bill got aired out this week in the NY Times, and in the process, the story is a bit botched.

TARANTINO: We’ve been okay. Uma was in turmoil about the uprising against me this whole weekend. She blames me for not talking to Maureen Dowd, saying it’s your own damn fault. She never meant this to roll over onto me. We’ve been talking about it ad nauseum and I feel bad because she has been doing a Broadway play, at the same time. The whole weekend, we’ve been talking. The uproar that happened against me, she was not prepared for. We have a long complicated history. We have been dealing with it for 22 years. We’re both one of the closest people in each other’s lives. So it was rather shocking to read this article, where the headline is about Uma’s anger, and lumping me into her anger about Harvey. As much detail as they went into, no one seemed to care about the Harvey stuff.

Kaboom Cereal from Kill Bill

Remember the box of Kaboom cereal that Vernita Green used to hide a gun in Kill Bill?

Well, Ace has put together a post with everything you could ever want to know about Kaboom cereal. My favorite tidbit:

Kaboom was for people — children, I mean — who had decided to give up on life. And it’s a sad thing for a six year old to have already thrown in the towel and said, “Ah well. The hopes and dreams of kindergarten are ultimately exposed as so much folly. Give me the Kaboom, Ma. I’m ready to settle.”
