Looks like Quentin Tarantino is having some rich man's problems. Yesterday he filed a lawsuit against"True Blood" and "Six Feet Under" creator Alan Ball.

It turns out that they are next door neighbors, and Ball's pet birds are too loud for Quentin to concentrate. Which is weird because Quentin always seems to have laser-like focus. Tarantino claims in the lawsuit that the "obnoxious pteradactyl-like screams" coming from Ball's "exotic bird menagerie" have "seriously disrupted [his] ability to work as a writer in his home."

He's tried to settle with Ball in the past but to no avail. Seriously though, shut those birds up. They're standing in the way of Quentin's process. He can't drink absinthe out of ladies shoes while wearing a gimp mask with all that racket going on. And how are forgotten stars of the 70's and 80's supposed to deliver Oscar-winning monologues if he is too distracted to write them? Treat Williams has waited long enough, dammit. (THR)
