Paste Magazine CD: December 05/January 06

Fiona Apple is on the cover of the new Paste, which includes interviews with Apple, Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, and Nellie McKay. Also in this issue, Paste gets in on the listmaking craze, naming "The Paste Arthouse Powerhouse 100", a list of "actors, directors, screenwriters, cinematographers and composers along with those who grease the wheels to bring us the best arthouse films." Paste's top arthouse actor is Bill Murray. Their top director pick is David Cronenberg, and screenwriter Charlie Kaufman ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", "Adaptation") gets the nod in the "Other Creatives" category. That's how much respect writers get; they're filed under "miscellaneous". Netflix is named the #1 "Wheel Greaser"; the Cannes Film Festival is #2. Those two will be exchanging some dirty looks at this season's holiday parties!

As always, Paste includes a CD (subscribers get a DVD as well).

Hey, we're writers too, you know. But we know pretty well how the film biz works. Get your name "On A Screen / Five Feet Long / And Luminous"* all you want, but the director, producer and studio still have more of a say in the finished product that you do.

Unless, of course, you're Charlie Kaufman.
