Sam Beam on his music, his movies, and M and M’s

by Josh Kimball

I like many things about Sam Beam, including 1) his movies, 2) his beard, and 3) his music. He recently did an interview with the A.V. Club wherein he makes clear that his attitude toward films that license his music is extraordinarily nonchalant (re: Garden State: “I hear it was good.”).

He also talks about my favorite song of his, “The Trapeze Swinger,” and how it was used in the awful movie In Good Company with equal shruggery.

In addition to Garden State, some other media in which Beam’s music has appeared that he’s has never seen:
*Friday Night Lights
*The L Word
*Gray’s Anatomy

He has seen the M&M’s commercial, and promises that he likes M&Ms.
