my personal inspirations are orville redenbacker, mickey mantle and john berryman---today. ask me again tomorrow. chris carter wrote the sunflower seeds into the pilot. i don't like them so much because they are very messy. i prefer popcorn. as for music, i've been listening to a lot of steely dan --- mulder could've been a steely dan guy---and i'm also listening to technotrance and gorecki.
memorable guest stars on the show were lily tomlin, who never yelled at me and ed asner, who forgot my name. jack black and giovanni ribisi were on the same episode. shia labeouf was a guest star too.
in regards to current world issues, everything is political.
some of my favorite episodes of x-files are ice, piper maru, the post-modern prometheus, small potatoes, and bad blood. patrick stewart was the first internet sex symbol with hair but pileggi always thought it was him.
