GUYS MY FRIEND MENTIONED ME
At Frontback, we have the pleasure of getting to know some of our fantastic community members!
Today, we introduce writer, performer, and marketer, Willie Myers (@theresawillie on Frontback). By day, he runs marketing for a tech startup. By night, he does improv and sketch comedy at the Second…
After seeing Her the other day I realized that it felt a lot like Lost in Translation and dealt with the same themes: isolation, loneliness, and finding solace in someone (or something) else.
Yep. Thought the same things.
Update: Another interesting little twist to this: remember that Spike Jonze and Sofia Coppola were married from 1999 - 2003. Then there’s the rumor that Giovanni Ribisi’s photographer character in Lost in Translation was based on Jonze. And, of course, there’s the voice of Samantha…
Was Her Jonze’s direct response to Lost in Translation? Maybe that’s reading way too much into it. But maybe not. It’s certainly a compelling notion that sort of works beautifully.

I saw one of your pie charts showing that you don't always wear pants while working, so I'm assuming you work from home a lot. How does a freelance writer stay on task at home instead of taking pictures of their cat constantly? Thank you for your help (I'm definitely, totally not procrastinating right now)
I don’t have a cat. And I have never once felt the urge to photograph someone else’s cat. So I’m starting from a very privileged position.
