read about Charlie Kaufman. a lot.

this is suuuuuper long, but if you love him like i do you'll be all "whatevs".

i saw it on PopCandy.

Fans of Being John Malkovich, Adaptation and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind will definitely want to check out Wired's "profile of a profile of Charlie Kaufman."
Confused? The magazine is letting readers peek behind the curtain at how a story about the screenwriter came together. On the blog, you'll see internal e-mails, video clips, drafts, audio and more.
"Kaufman's work is all about the search for meaning in the process itself," says Wired creative director Scott Dadich. Quoting an editor, he says, "'What if we showed how we produced this story?' 'What would happen if we broke the rules, we put the whole thing online as we produced it?' 'What if we posted the edit -- hell, the rough draft.' ... 'What if Charlie sees it?' 'What if he hates the draft and refuses to cooperate for the rest of the reporting?' 'What then?' 'What if there was more story about the story than in the story itself?'"
The final version appears in the November issue. Until then, stay tuned for chunks about what we might expect.

Kaufman's directorial debut, Synecdoche, New York, opens Oct. 24.

here's the genius accepting his Oscar with Michel Gondry and Pierre Bismuth. Bravo to Sam Jackson for saying "Michael" instead of Michel. Way to go.
