"About Me: Started filming weddings and bar mitzvahs when I was 18 and retitrd from that at 26 after I was burglarized by the Berkeley Asssistant City Managers daughters boyfriend. I was shocked to find out the Berkeley Police are really social idiots, that pretend to be smart, when there really just stupid people."
"They looked up to find Michael Moore shambling past with a small entourage. They caught up to him, told him they admired him and were looking for jobs and wondered when he knew what he wanted to do. He told them how he was unemployed, collecting $98 a week, saw the General Motors chairman on TV, and on and on."
We hunt foxes here, but it's more about feral pest control than sport for aristocrats.
A female friend of mine from the country made an interesting observation once, that was that many of her relatives who stayed on the farm but were repulsed by fox hunting had their view change the first time they saw a few lambs that had been grabbed and only had their tounge and eyes ripped out...
I really wish that sci-fi scriptwriters be punished for ripping off and recycling stories.
I think I have seen five times in different eries the plot line where they are being attacked by some giant creature/entity for seemingly no reason and it later tunrs out the lovable trickster/hustler on the crew had some precious item that tunrs out to have been it's eggs all along. Plenty of other stories badly rehashed form the classics, and not ina reinterretation, just ripped off badly.
No, he was saying that he has a lot of decent scripts to read as part of his profession, and that he objects to these terrible scipts being forced on him, and they do not even take his feedback onboard.
We know you've been working very hard on your screenplay, but before you go looking for some professional feedback, you might keep in mind the following piece by A History of Violence screenwriter Josh Olson.
I will not read your fucking script.
That's simple enough, isn't it? "I will not read your fucking script." What's not clear about that? There's nothing personal about it, nothing loaded, nothing complicated. I simply have no interest in reading your fucking screenplay. None whatsoever.
If that seems unfair, I'll make you a deal. In return for you not asking me to read your fucking script, I will not ask you to wash my fucking car, or take my fucking picture, or represent me in fucking court, or take out my fucking gall bladder, or whatever the fuck it is that you do for a living.
You're a lovely person. Whatever time we've spent together has, I'm sure, been pleasurable for both of us. I quite enjoyed that conversation we once had about structure and theme, and why Sergio Leone is the greatest director who ever lived. Yes, we bonded, and yes, I wish you luck in all your endeavors, and it would thrill me no end to hear that you had sold your screenplay, and that it had been made into the best movie since Godfather Part II.
But I will not read your fucking script.
At this point, you should walk away, firm in your conviction that I'm a dick. But if you're interested in growing as a human being and recognizing that it is, in fact, you who are the dick in this situation, please read on.
Yes. That's right. I called you a dick. Because you created this situation. You put me in this spot where my only option is to acquiesce to your demands or be the bad guy. That, my friend, is the very definition of a dick move.
I'm a well known right winger on these boards but I come from a country with socialised health care, and I have to tell you that the few weeks I was not covered (too lazy to fill out a fucking form to have it renewed for free) I finally realised how valuable it is.
That said though, your country will never be able to afford such a thing, especially while you have an open border to the south. Even if the Republicans didnt oppose it, it would never go through as "universal" as it is made out to be.
Where do you think European royalty comes from if you go back far enough? SUre, they always claim some link to Roman nobility but really they were just the generals and merchants fo their day who got very successful and struck when the time was right.
