Danny Elfman Interview

Via Mike Russell: a two-part, one-hour-long interview with composer Danny Elfman, touching on such stuff as:

* his recent score for Notorious, a movie about the life of The Notorious B.I.G.
* writing songs for films
* his influences
* his working relationship with Tim Burton
* fans who were incensed that he wouldn't reference Jerry Goldsmith's Planet of the Apes music when he scored the remake
* His reaction to an animated version of himself getting his head cut off on Family Guy's Star Wars episode
* And how he was moved to get political during this election by creating a "We can't risk a President Palin" commercial. (He also founded the website Our Greatest Fear.)

He swears. So you know.
