Sitting on a fountain at Madison and 56th.

Just killing time before going to do Charlie Rose. I had to get a dress shirt since all my clothes are dirty and wrinkled. Had a little bit of a Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman" situation in Barneys. I walked in in a stanky t-shirt and all sweaty and it took me quite a while before I could find anyone to help me.

Amazing "Ali G" show on HBO last night... That guy is my hero.

Now I have to find somewhere to iron this new shirt. Madison avenue's not exactly dry cleaning central. Maybe Charlie's got an iron I can borrow. Hmmm.

Wednesday is the big opening in New York and LA, so if you're there please go this weekend. Sorry for the shameless plug, but the movie opens the same weekend as some Massive blockbusters that shall remain nameless.

Kudos on your success. Hope you found an iron. I happen to find the "just rolled out of bed look" quite sexy. Is Garden State opening this weekend in Miami?

Posted by: maria | Jul 26, 2004 2:04:05 PM

So you bought a wrinkled dress shirt? Well, I suppose that is the "in" look these days with those kids and their video games and their rock and/or roll.
But good luck on tv!

Xoxo back at you Zach! (Its uber-cute that you do that, by the way!)

Posted by: Tammy D | Jul 26, 2004 2:05:40 PM

Can't wait for the Toronto opening on the 30th! I'll be there with bells on.

Those massive blockbusters don't know who they're messing with...

Good luck in NY and LA!

ALI G!! no way.. he kills me, do you know he actually went to Cambridge? He's a genius.

Posted by: Katie | Jul 26, 2004 2:12:46 PM

that was you taking the change out of the fountain?

Posted by: jp | Jul 26, 2004 2:23:26 PM

Hi Zach- I just wanted to let you know Garden State looks like such a beautiful, brilliant, inspiring, moving movie. I'm an aspiring actress living in a New Jersey suburb, and watching your trailer made me realize how much acting and movies mean to me, and it motivated me to keep on working towards my dream despite lack of support from anyone. I know that you're a very busy man, but if you get a chance could you please email me with some advice? I hope that someday I can have the oppurtunity to work with you in one of your movies! I wish you the best of luck and success with all of your projects!

Posted by: Julie | Jul 26, 2004 2:28:58 PM

Have fun doing promo for the next few weeks. You've always got the F.O.G.S to support you. Geez, I feel like one of those obsessed Star Wars fans or a Trekkie...oh well.

Posted by: Patrick | Jul 26, 2004 2:49:32 PM

Two more days. Wooooo hooooo! I can't wait. Let us know when your Charlie Rose interview is going to air.

Posted by: Iko | Jul 26, 2004 2:51:23 PM

Where will you be when the film opens on Wednesday? Will you don a disguise and attend a screening?
Heading to New York for a long weekend this Wednesday...looking forward to catching GARDEN STATE in Manhattan.

Posted by: Daytonfilmguy | Jul 26, 2004 3:00:59 PM

Hey Zach,
i saw Garden State earlier this month at a film festival in maine and i just wanted to thank you for making such an amazing and beautiful movie.
i have been hyping it up to everyone i see.
thanks once again, it was probably one of the best movies i have ever seen

Goodluck with the opening this weekend.

Posted by: Marty McMorrow | Jul 26, 2004 3:04:41 PM

Charlie Rose? Pfft. I say just wear something solid black. You'll look like a floating head and hands.

I dont know how many years it's been, and Rose's show is still just a freaking table and a couple chairs that seem to be somehow HOVERING IN THE VOID.

come to think of it, that sounds like a blast. I think I'M gonna go do Rose's show.

By the way, I'm excited about Garden State, just from the trailers, in a way I NEVER have been about any other movie before. The trailers are fantastic, but it just looks like my kind of movie.

In fact, as a wannabe-filmmaker myself, I definitely wish that I could timetravel several years in the past, so I could steal it from you.
If it makes you feel any better, I might feel a little bit bad if I went through with it though. Maybe half-regret it even.



Posted by: Thom | Jul 26, 2004 3:09:19 PM

hi, we don't really know what to say, since we don't know you and all that, but we think that you're really hilarious from what we have read. And seen. And whatnot. And we definitely want to see the movie. And that skymall seriously does sell some weird crap. One time I saw something telling me how I could get rid of my hideous sock tan. Hm, useful. Anyway, can't wait to see Garden State, and neither can our friends. Doesn't P Diddly live on Madison Avenue? I bet he'd let you use his iron.

Posted by: Rose and Lucy | Jul 26, 2004 3:16:12 PM

Go with the wrinkled shirt and you'll have a ready-made anecdote! And find a way to incorporate the cat stroller man. He could have trampled your shirt in a mad dash to make it to the Skymall magazine.

Hey, it's better than most talk show anecdotes...

Posted by: Aragorn | Jul 26, 2004 3:24:13 PM

Hey, I know you're really excited about the soundtrack album, but I'm a little disappointed in the fact that it's missing the version of "Three Times A Lady" that's in the film. You should try to get that added on real quick, like a bonus track or something.

Posted by: the guy | Jul 26, 2004 3:33:38 PM

well i don't know what to say about this shirt but i'm now determined to comment on every entry you ever make.

i'm really excited for the film, toronto better be a select city, i think you're great.

Posted by: carol | Jul 26, 2004 3:34:41 PM

Ah, "Ali G." I saw Sacha Baron on the Daily Show a couple of weeks ago and tried to re-enact the interview for my mom so she would know how hilarious he was. Unfortunately, my fingers aren't nearly long enough and he is far too male for my impression to have been that convincing.
Congratulations on the movie! I saw it at the Seattle Film Festival a couple of months ago and I left the theater smiling. A perfect combination of humor, heart & drama--we need more of these movies! I look forward to seeing it again and to things you do in the future.

Posted by: ms | Jul 26, 2004 3:47:56 PM

I have a feeling you are a really pretentious guy who made another chick/gay flick.

Posted by: NYC Guy | Jul 26, 2004 3:50:07 PM

Yeah that happens to me at Barneys from time to time (the snobbiness) but things seem to change when I bring up my shirts to the counter and whip out my AMEX. :)

Cannot wait to see the movie on Wed - I'll be first in line!

Posted by: Pat | Jul 26, 2004 3:50:08 PM

Oh my goodness. I can't believe I hadn't heard anything about this movie before the Scrubs-a-thon. I have always loved you and the rest of the cast on Scrubs. I find it to be intelligently ridiculous humor and there has been a void of such an aspect on television since they canceled Sports Night. When I watch Scrubs, I laugh so hard the people I'm with think that there is something seriously wrong with me. I kid you not. So when I saw your wonderful personage introducing the trailer during the Scrubs-a-thon and also you saying that you directed it, I knew right then and there that the movie would be beatiful and amazing. Thank you Zach Braff for birnging an intelligent humor to a world of media that is so desprately lacking.

Posted by: Chris B | Jul 26, 2004 3:51:02 PM

Zach! It's so cool that you're doing a blog to tell us about your adventures in the world of feature film press. I'm excited to see "Garden State," especially after the trailer that ran during the "Scrubs" marathon.

I still think you should've finished "Large's Ark" first. That sounded like such a cool movie.

And I've got a great script for your next film. You'd be perfect for the leading role. I don't mean to brag, but it's one of only 5,700 or so scripts to get rejected from the Nicholl's Fellowship this year, so you know it's quality.


Posted by: the fish | Jul 26, 2004 3:51:23 PM

P.S. By the way, I loved it, and I love you. Thanks.

Posted by: NYC Guy | Jul 26, 2004 3:51:56 PM

I really hope you're going to post on when you're on Letterman and the big talk shows, would like to see you there.


Posted by: Brandon Christensen | Jul 26, 2004 3:57:26 PM

Don't worry, Zach, your movie is on the top of the list of "Movies to See". I would go see your movie before I ever went to go see the nameless movie. :)

Hope you're doing well after your trip in Dallas. You actually left a few days before we got a break. It's about 83 degrees and feelin' mighty fine. Maybe next time, it will be more pleasant. I recommend visiting in April or October. Great months around here.

ZB: Hey you!!!!I cant wait to see GS in LatinAmerica (specially Costa Rica, where I live...)I can speak english but do you know that there are people from marketing that change movies names into spanish in a totally diferent way?...also I want to see GS in english, I couldnt see GS in Spanish...I cant image what voice would have Nat in spanish...JAJAJA.

Posted by: Wilbur C. Mesen | Jul 26, 2004 4:06:30 PM

No such thing as a shameless plug, especially if its about something you pour yourself into. I would def go see it, but im not in LA or NY, hopin it comes to Orlando so i can catch it, if not, itll be a road trip with a few buddies. Cant wait to see GS, and i plan on catchin you on Letterman when it airs......Best of luck
