I was very interested in that there were these kids I knew growing up and kids I was working with that are working class kids, they have these vivid lives, they come from tough neighborhoods and have in many ways, difficult challenging lives, but aren’t necessarily miserable people. So that’s the kids, for the most part—there were some others that were going through some deeper, deeper stuff—but there was a lot of kids that I knew that were just like that. So when the kids in Superbad steal booze it’s like, oh kids are kids, and they are and that’s great and that’s fun, or stealing a keg in Dazed and Confused, it’s the same thing. And I was like why do kids in Dazed and Confused and Superbad get to have all the fun when there are kids in New York that do have tough lives but they still have fun?
