LL Cool J...

I was just listening to LL Cool J and was reminded of an interview i heard somewhere. This really beautiful woman was saying how sexy LL was because he was always licking his lips. Drove her crazy. And i remember thinking, "Hm... i wonder if i could pull that off...?"

...maybe not.

the five things i fell in love with today...

1) Writing. I know it's been awhile since i've written a blog, but i've been pretty busy these days with my first screenplay. I had the idea for it a long time back, and finally finished the first draft a year or so ago. And then i made the mistake of reading it... Yeah... pretty terrible. But!!! 12 months later, i think i've (almost) recovered from the shock and i am back in that saddle again.
2) Storytelling. It's just great to be able to make stuff up. To entertain a room. Even if/ especially if it's a room full of two-year-olds.
3) This particular story i'm telling is one that can't lose! I want to combine a blockbuster epic with a low budget academy award winner. I'm calling it "Crash of the Titans". It's a lot like the 1981 Harry Hamlin flick, except this time, Medusa and The Krakken hate each other, because they're racists.
4) "Save the Cat" by Blake Snyder.
5) Being sexier than LL Cool J. Although, more times than not, it's a burden.

Clash of the Titans...

Rather than go on and on about the way i felt after the 'clash of the titans' credits rolled this afternoon, i thought i'd give you a chance to pick your favorite review...

A) The gods must be crazy.
B) Here's one krakken that should not have been released.
C) This movie was so bad, i was poseidon myself.

the five things i fell in love with today...

1) A really good bad movie. Seriously, there's something so great about going to a really crap movie. A really cheeky flick with things that blow up and actors who can't act. But, there's a fine line between that type of movie and one that... well, doesn't know it's a crap movie. Guess which one 'clash of the titans' was?
2) Zues. Samuel L Jackson's character from the third "die hard" movie.
3) Quality movie fight scenes. The ENTIRE movie-- 'clash of the titans' --i had NO idea what was going on! It was the muddledist thing i'd ever seen on film! I was so damn confused!!! "Wait... he was INSIDE of the giant scorpion???" "Wait... I thought that guy already died..." "Wait... there are THREE giant scorpions now???"
4) Brand new words. Like muddledist.
5) God.
