You’ll be pleased or indifferent to hear that I finally completed a first draft of my horror script yesterday and sent off versions to Ivon, my writing partner Paul and, of course, my Toronto nemesis Tara who would make either a fantastic lunatic or an equally great hapless victim when it comes time to shoot the movie. I, of course, feel a terrific sense of accomplishment – that will inevitably fade over the next few days to be replaced by feelings of regret, uncertainty, and a general desire to switch gears and do something completely different like go to chef school or become a professional Warhammer player. More than likely, however, I’ll just end up writing something else – probably that damn pilot script I’ve been meaning to finish. Meanwhile, the more I research that historical mini-series, the more I think it will just be too damn expensive to produce and I should instead consider writing that feature about the crime-solving monkeys.
Today, Ivon, Patrick, Lawren and I reconvened to continue our Game of Thrones marathon.
I was hoping we could reconvene sometime this week to continue watching but Lawren ruined everything by getting a job.
So, everybody finished watching Condorman? I’m sure Cookie Monster, our Supermovie of the Week guest reviewer, will have plenty to say on the subject. Wonder if he enjoyed it more than Superman II?
Speaking of Cookie Monster, check these out –
Tara is apparently the nail art Queen of Toronto and given to posting pics of her latest creations over on her blog. The other day, I asked her if she took requests. What kind of requests? I suggested cartoon characters. She went one better.
In addition to posting pics of her nails, she also posts the occasional amusing story – like this one, for instance, detailing an awkward on-set experience with John McLean himelf, Bruce Willis: This is My Bruce Willis Story
My front and semi-regular blog reader, Kellie Rice, is trying to win her sister tickets to The Hunger Games premiere (which, I assume, is sort of like the Olympics for dieters). Anyway, Kellie’s video is a top 5 finalist and she needs YOUR support. Head on over to https://www.facebook.com/badassdigest?sk=wall and “like” the Badass: Katniss Everdeen vid. The gals, I’m sure, will be eternally grateful.
