Jason Pargin’s thought’s about social media, the algorithm and it’s impact and how bizarre it all feels to him. He talks about the thinking behind some of his most famous Cracked articles. His ability to conceptualize what might not be obvious to the rest of us and asking tough but honest questions in list form.
He answers the question if there will be another movie.
Jason talks his writing process and how outlining the book takes as much time as the writing process. He talks his being amazed by Stephen King process, Breaking Bad, Sherlock Holmes and the breadth of George. R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones and how anxiety inducing it being incomplete, is.
His thoughts on sex in stories, his approach and why. Quentin Tarantino comes up lol. There will be more books, find out how many more and why he’s not really a serial writer? There will be no book before he publishes a bad one.
We talk about filmmaking and what a pain it can be. His experience with set work for Cracked’s youtube channel and how much effort it took.
Books mentioned: This Is How You Lose The Time War, Game of Thrones
