From the Los Angeles Review of Books (5:49):

Caleb Powell: Why did you get so angry about the letter?
David Shields:
Good question…I mean, all you’re doing is fucking me over. (Riding Lawn Mower video)
Caleb Powell: …I have a license to antagonize, ’cause anything I do wrong to you will end up helping us.

Our book launch for I Thing You’re Totally Wrong: A Quarrel at University Bookstore coincides with Charlie Hebdo massacre (52:03):

Caleb Powell: We should bomb the world with images that offend these terrorists
David Shields: That’s a typical sort of Caleb move, which is ostensibly about politics but is really meant to reflect a sort of moral glory on himself.
