Don't get me wrong, I love Mark, but I can't make out what he's saying between his accent and his not-so-great phone connection. Any chance for a transcript or at least a synopsis of what he's saying?

I appreciate the frustration Joshua, but we tried very hard to get the best phone connection possible. Obviously Mark can't do anything about his accent.

It is what it is, and no transcription will be provided.

Yours is the only "complaint" I've received.

I gave it some time and got used to it and then it wasn't so bad. Maybe I need to get my ears checked. I appreciate the response. =)

Also, I was on the Marvel press call with you today and I liked Cloud Atlas. Good but not brilliant. It didn't amount to more than the sum of its parts, but I liked the parts. Plus, gotta love Tom Hanks doing anything.
