a to the z

Jay-Z and Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, photographed performing together at the Live 8 benefit concert, held in Philadelphia on July 2, 2005.

The Live 8 concerts were part of a campaign to get the world’s richest nations to cancel debt, increase aid to developing countries and promote fair trade. That day Hov joined Linkin Park on-stage, appearing to “Public Service Announcement.” He and the band then ran through tracks from their 2004 collaborative project Collision Course, including “Numb/Encore,” “Jigga What/Faint,” “Dirt Off Your Shoulder/Lying From You” and “Big Pimpin’/Papercut.”

    • dj: scenes with the kid; the dog hates them
    • russell: airshaft scene; saving 10k in insane asylum
  • On the dog:
    • The dog hates them, isnt trained, and is pretty disobedient
    • one time DJ put peanut butter in pants to get the dog to come to him and he still refused; the kid is able to be reasoned with
    • Jellybean takes are for the kid (1 for an easy scene, 2 for a hard one) 
  • On the Murphy loving Warren thing

  • Murphy is the character that everyone loves to hate 
    • “you hate him and then he goes and does something really great and youre like….”
  • Keith directs episode 4.04!!!!!
  • apparently david michael latt’s wife was on the show at some point
  • they talked about the fact that all of the z’s have some bits of humanity in them, and thats what the show is really about; how much humanity remains in everyone
  • at the end after they left the stage keith came over to the ropes and was high fiving everyone and shaking hands and he was so happy to meet us!!! but the guard dude was like “time to go” and was pulling him away so he waved goodbye and was all smiley and it was awesome
