W MAGAZINE: According to writer-director Noah Baumbach, Debbie Harry is Queen of New York! (So put her in your next movie.)
From the piece, by Jenny Comita:
Blondie, and Harry in particular, seemed to epitomize a gritty downtown glamour that, for a kid in 1980s Brooklyn, was so close yet felt so far away. Baumbach and his friends would take the subway into Manhattan, flip through the bins at Tower Records, and walk by CBGB, but, well aware of their status as awkward adolescents, never went in. “It felt like an entirely different place, Manhattan from Brooklyn,” he says. “I could identify with it on one hand, but it also was not my life. It just felt like all this amazing stuff was happening over there that I wasn’t a part of. And that was true of New York bands and the photos of Debbie that I was thinking about when we were planning this shoot.”

You know, it’s hard when you, I don’t know, consider somebody a friend and they’ve said so many things, so many negative things. And it’s — that’s been a little hurtful ... Hunter has done nothing wrong. Why would Hunter be called? Donald Trump should be before that committee.
