Mr. Pink’s Tipping Aversion Explained

An interesting theory about character duplication in Tarantino’s films in the comments at io9 by Spangarang

I’ve always imagined that Jimmy (QT’s character) from Pulp Fiction is the same guy as Mr. Brown in Reservoir Dogs. Also, I think Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) is the same character as the Buddy Holly waiter in Pulp Fiction. He’s so paranoid about people knowing who he really is, he vehemently objects to tipping in the diner lest anyone find out he’s actually a waiter himself.

Quentin Tarantino | Gawker | Stolen Script | Copyright

A legal analysis of Tarantino’s lawsuit against a Gawker.

I read the Complaint. All Gawker did was promote the fact that it had links to others on the internet who had the script. That seems like a tough claim of copyright liability, but hey, presumably the plaintiffs’ lawyers did the reasearch and think they have a legal claim. But still, just linking to others creates a copyright liability? Yikes, if that’s true.

Doubtful that claim will hold up.
