Will Oldham: There was a great woman in Texas who was making a movie last year, and who wanted me to play a dentist who’s part of some weird sadomasochistic pagan sex cult.
Gerhard: If she was busy with housework, all she had to do was give me a piece of paper and a pencil or some crayons and I was quiet for hours.
Oldham: (Laughs) I love the distribution of labor.
Gerhard: I majored in drugs, mostly.
Oldham: Which was huge.
Gerhard: We did a lot of stuff with photocopying.
Oldham: Yeah, I would. Do you know this movie?
Gerhard: Oh, shit. Yes. Yeah. Thank God.
Oldham: It’s everything. That doesn’t really worry me because next year more people will see it.
Gerhard: Are you talking about the streams of light?
Oldham: I’m not even communicating with myself—I don’t know what’s going on.
Gerhard: My one pottery thing that I built blew up in the kiln and wrecked everybody else’s stuff that was in there.
Oldham: That was one of the most crucial experiences.
Gerhard: I loved all the dream sequences.
Oldham: But otherwise, no.
