In the now archive-rich, seemingly endless treasure trove that was Manhattan Cable, the WOW-made series for Channel 4 in the UK, we again find a segment for the Basement Tapes that is as timely as time itself. Back when Bret Easton Ellis’s yuppie serial killer novel, American Psycho, was creeping people out while simultaneously boring them to death, Bill Judkins talked to Ellis at popular Wall Street pub Harry’s about the 10 most frequently mentioned brand names in the book. It’s timely because Ellis’s latest novel, Lunar Park, is about a bestselling writer named Bret Easton Ellis who is done in by a novel called American Psycho. Oh, and that’s WOW’s faithful Laurie Pike introducing the clip, which you can watch here.
