    I've taken quite a bit of your time, and so will try a quick summation here. First, Nate, your little pacing exercise is freaking great. I will absolutely do this, after a full draft is in place. Anytime I can make a spreadsheet and a graph I get enthused. Again, this is just great, one of the...

    Thanks, CR, for taking the time to read and comment, and I'm sorry to have ruined your evening--I'm kidding. In all seriousness, I take it as a real compliment that you don't think you have to patronize. As with Mara, this gives me a lot to think about. This sequence kind of grinds through...

    Thanks Nate, and please don't feel in any way obligated--I promise I take no offense. God knows you seem to have enough on your plate. :) And thanks again, Mara, for taking the time and making the effort to respond so honestly. Your reaction was, for me, really great, sparking ideas, making...

    streaming What are you watching rn?

    I haven't thought about it for a while, but Werner Herzog's documentary about the bear guy is worth seeing. The guy saw himself as the bear-whisperer, the bear protector, ending up on things like Letterman, telling his bear stories. The film is a complex, sympathetic (and ultimately...

    streaming What are you watching rn?

    Me too. I liked the invisible boy, who could only turn invisible when no one was watching, lol. Also the guy (Hank Azaria) whose power is throwing silverware. And WH Macy, who shovels stuff, but shovels it--really well. :)

    critique WORK IN PROGRESS scripts

    Yea, I read the posts too. Humorous, but still, a little, demoralizing. I would love to bump into, on the Netflix, a thing about Bob of Bob's Burgers somehow joining the Fantastic Four. I would be genuinely happy for the guy.

    I do enjoy you all's discussion about this stuff (and sorry to clog it up trying to be humorous, lol). I get some real insight into these processes, and it is fascinating. In this world, and in, I believe, all worlds, everything is physics.

    Yup. I've said before that I think there are two types of people (beyond people who think there are two types of people and those who dont): People who are on TV and people who watch TV. The first are mostly ass holes, the second, mostly dumb asses. Anyway, now I think there is another two...

    Links don't work :( crap, just noticed this was years ago. Not sure why it popped up on my thing. Oh well.

    Wait. Are you saying this movie was made, like, inside a computer? Not with wires and trick photography?

    Sorry, this is a little long, 14 pages. The thing, this piece included, is now 40 pages or so, and I am finally almost ready for the meat of the story, which should be twice as long--hopefully longer, so I can trim much of this first part. I fear that, by now, after 40 minutes of not much...

    Happy birthday

    Happy birthday to Debby Boone, Scott Baio, and Anne of Cleves. Why do i know? Why do I care? In what universe do you imagine that that's any of your business. anyway :)

    And, by the way, I like the yellow rectangle on my page. It's kind of Rothkoesque :)

    critique The next bit.

    My intention was just to find out if anyone thought the project worth perusing; I couldn't tell if there would be an audience for something like this, or if I could get into it at all, or if so, if it wouldn't just be junk. Anyway, these questions are now generously answered, for me, from a few...
