Ever kissed a girl who smokes? Its NASTY! They taste like rust. While I think smoking looks cool in films sometimes, I dont think its good for anyone in the long run.
Just about every character I’ve ever written in a screenplay or short story has been a smoker. (But then again, they are often alcoholics and junkies; and perverts are another favourite topic of mine) I think it can look really cool in film and it gives something for my characters to do in writing. But I personally don’t smoke. Addiction is actually a recurring theme in my writing. So that has something to do with it.
Don’t know about Tarantino jerking off to that video, but whatever…
