: : Yeah, it's me again. I had let the whole situation from the other night
: go. It was gone. Then me and Mr. Jim Beam got to thinkin'. I still
: don't understand. I just don't. I guess the only way that I would, is if I
: were in the same business as you. I just don't understand how
: someone fortunate enough to get to act in movies for a living could
: get upset about some awards. But, then again, I guess it's not totally
: about these specific awards as much as it's about the fact that the
: film just didn't get quite as much recognition as you felt it deserved.
: (a point I happen to agree with you on, but THAT is neither here nor
: there) If I'm wrong about that then feel free to correct me. The only
: explanation I have for my actions is, that I felt you were taking your
: fortunate position of being a professional (successful) actor for
: granted. I see now that that's probably not the case at all. But damn
: it, when I first read your original post all I could think was, "This lucky
: bastard, is bitchin' about some fucking awards?!?!". I was just like,
: "There are children all over this country, homeless and starving and
: this guy's pissed about some awards!!!". "ARE YOU FUCKING
: KIDDING ME!!!". Man, you might as well had come over here and
: kicked my momma in the mouth. That's the best way I know how to
: explain why I did what I did. I do , however, appreciate you taking so
: much time to explain your stance on the matter to me. That I do
: appreciate, very much. Very much. I guess, in the end, we just have
: to agree to disagree on the matter. G'day Mr. Lee.

: Cool post, Arron. Yeah, you got it right this time. I just wanted the film
: to get the kind of recognition that I feel it deserves, that's why I was
: disappointed when it didn't get nominated for best picture by the
: Academy. In the end, it doesn't really matter, but I thought it would be
: nice. I just thought it would be another nice acknowledgment for the
: film. AF is still a great film and has inspired a lot of people, and that
: is all that really matters. And, no, this never, in anyway, had anything
: to do with my taking what I have for granted. I am the furthest thing
: from a spoiled actor you could imagine. I made myself a promise on
: the set of Mallrats almost 7 years ago that I would NEVER take this
: acting thing I was getting into for granted. I promised to never abuse it
: or get too used to it. And, besides, that's not the kind of person I am
: anyway. I'm sure you already know that about me, though. Well, it was
: good chatting with you. NEVER any hard feelings. You were right to
: speak up. There's nothing wrong with voicing one's opinions the way
: you did. Take care. I'll see you around!

: Jason.
