I was reminded by John Lurie discussing the unfortunate Tad Friend piece on Lurie in The New Yorker that at the time I was struck by it being drivel not up to the usual standard. I wish Lurie all the best.

There's a great Sponge Bob episode (Hooks) that uses a clip from Fishing With John, with Jim Jarmusch!
