Hmmmm.  If this A.I. can write scripts AND pitch, then I’m making the investment.

Today’s Yes/No…

This one earns a resounding MEH.

Pitched Project DW today, that Epic (note the capital E) space opera.  Temporal anomalies, slingshot maneuvers, compromised shields, tethered missiles, spider silk-laced ultra graphene spikes and all.  This one is definitely wild.

Generating a short list of K-pop bands we’re going to go out to for Project F.  I, of course, have opinions.

Was struck by inspiration at 2:00 a.m. the night before last and dashed off a revised take of that classic sci-fi series.  Talked things through with my partner in interstellar crime on this one, author Paul Cornell, and the creative ball is now in his court.  We’ll toss it back and forth, then aim to pitch within the next couple of weeks.  Decades later, this show still gets so much love from science fiction aficionados.

Meanwhile, hearing rumors of that presumably deceased project may be resurrected.  I’ll believe it when I see it and, while I do hope it’s true for all involved, this one is no longer my jam and I’ll be cheering them on from the sidelines.

Hey, have you ever been in on one of those meetings where the person you’re speaking to makes several points and you politely ask them to clarify because they’re not really making sense.  Then, they do attempt to do so but really fail to shed much light on things, so you go through their concerns, point by point, seeking clarification – and they just repeat themselves.  And you grow weary and leave the meeting, assuming it’s just you and everything will become clear when you sit down to address the issues – only to ultimately realize it wasn’t just you?  Yeah, that’s where I’m at.

I’ve seen this movie…

  1. Some days I feel like my whole life is one of those meetings. Is Project DW the comic adaptation? Trying to decrypt the clues.

  2. “Hey, have you ever been in on one of those meetings where the person you’re speaking to makes several points and you politely ask them to clarify because they’re not really making sense.

    At my house, that happens at least once a week.

  3. I think if you replaced studio/network executives with A.I. that would be much more productive. I expect you would even get responses to your emails.

    For the apple waffles, wouldn’t it be easier just to put some cooked apples on top of an Eggo and call it a day? That video seems like a lot of work for little return.

    You know, I would LOVE to see that classic sci-fi series get a new perspective. If it’s the one I’m thinking of, the main spaceship used is one of my favourite designs of all time.

  4. AI is getting close to being able to write a coherent story but it doesn’t understand about plot, or emotion, or character motivation. It would be a laugh, though!

    That classic sci-fi with the memorable theme tune? I can’t wait!

    Just another day in Australia. If it’s not on fire then the plagues of spiders and mice will get you. It has been bloody wet here recently! Plus some damaging storms that took out power to some areas over a week ago. Some households are still without power. My sister lives in Gippsland where the spiders are. I haven’t heard from her for a while . . .

  5. “Whale of a tail?” 🙄😂

    Spiders?! I don’t mind one or two but when they gather in large numbers…NO. Just no.

    I don’t have many zoom meetings but I hear my Hubby on his. I’ve noticed in his meetings there’s only one or two with anything new, and the rest have to talk, just to talk. Plus, they assign a high priority task, everyone drops what their doing to get that task done and before it’s done, one of the other bigwigs does the same thing. It seems very inefficient.

    What kind of culinary adventure do you have planned this weekend?
