The Mask (Laughing)

Up To Old Tricks

OK, long-time readers and old friends may remember the bullshit a couple years ago that happened between me and my (then) friend Alice. For those that don't, Collapse )

This morning, I get an e-mail that made me fall apart with helpless laughter. Apparently, Alice is up to the same old shit. According to my friend, who spoke with Scott last night, she left a note on his computer telling him she's moving out. They were supposed to be moving, this weekend, into a 3 bedroom apartment, and he has already put $300 down for the security deposit. Sure sounds like something she did a long time ago......when this was said to him, his response? "Yeah, she fucked over Frank, I guess I should have known."

Thought it was funny, and thought you might like to know. And to she who got me this info (no names): love ya, girl!

Friday Five - Life As A Movie

1. If your life were a movie, what would the title be?
I think this question has gone around more than once, but title? Hmm...well, "COnfessions of a Dangerous Mind" is already taken, sadly. Maybe I'll just call it "Twisted Genius".

2. What songs would be on the soundtrack?
Oh man...well, White Zombie's "I Am Legend", Bionic Jive's "Break The Chains", Sophie B. Hawkins "My Home Is In Your Jungle", Iron Maiden's "Run To The Hills", Rush's "Subdivisions", Curve's "Ice That Melts The Tips", The Pretenders' "Middle Of The Road", I'd like to work some Thickets into it if possible...and hell, there's a good chance I'd have to release a second soundtrack, since that's just the tip of the iceberg.

3. Would it be a live-action film or animated? Why?
It better be live, since it it's animated, I'll want to make it even weirder than the truth...and that's strange enough. Besides, I've been asking for MONTHS to have people do cartoon style drawings of me, and only one person went with it, so how am I gonna get a whole animated flick?

4. Casting: who would play you, members of your family, friends, etc?
Me: Bruce Campbell or Brad Dourif
Di: ...hmmm, no idea yet
Dad: Robin Williams
Mom: Kathy Bates
John (brother): Jamie Maddrox of Twizted
...have to give some more thought for the rest...

5. Describe the movie preview/trailer.
It would have to be at the point in my life where I questioned everything, and narrowed down my life's goal...I can see me sitting around with friends, somewhat dark, camera panning slowly around the group, as they are asking me for clarification, but you cannot see me yet, just their confuised faces as I try to explain to them the lack of anyone's need to believe in races, creeds, sexual orientation, or higher powers...at which point, someone stops me, not believeing that I could say that. I begin to say something about enlightenment, and how we could all be together as a species and work towards raising our minds enough to maybe get off this rock of a planet, and as the camera finally comes around, and slowly zooms in on me, fading to black as it does, I continue saying that if we can't, then we all need to die, and I'll be happy to be the one to pull the switch. The black screen flashes quickly throgh several still shots of me in various angry rants, emotional moments (happy and sad), etc., and finishes with one last picture of me, head lowered, looking right into the camera, hair down, grinning in away that could be good or not, fading slowly back to black, leaving only the words 'Twisted Genius'.

ner0sputnik, you're the movie guy, what do you think? Any chance? ;)

Weekend, and So Forth

Went and snagged a 10-DVD set of old 70's Italian and American horror films...hey, no one but me likes them! ALso picked up the DVD of 'Standing In The Shadows Of Motown'...if you haven't seen this, you really shoud, it was excellent.

Speaking of movie related stuff, AP is reporting that director John Schlesinger has passed away at Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, California. Mr. Schlesinger was 77. Schlesinger was born in 1926 and spent the early part of his career as a bit actor. He then made a successful move behind the lens, becoming one of the "angry young men" associated with the Kitchen Sink school of British filmmaking, along with Karel Reisz and Tony Richardson. Schlesinger crafted the well-received 'Billy Liar', 'Darling', and 'Far from the Madding Crowd' before making the film that brought him to prominence in America, 'Midnight Cowboy'. 'Cowboy', which was nominated for seven Academy Awards, remains the only X-rated film to win the Oscar for Best Picture; it also garnered Schlesinger the Best Director Nod, as well as Best Adapted Screenplay for Waldo Salt. Schlesinger never equaled the critical and popular success of 'Cowboy' though he continued to make quality films over the years such as the violent thriller 'Marathon Man', the creepy suspense/horror film 'The Believers' and the sublime satire 'Cold Comfort Farm'. Schlesinger had suffered a debilitating heart attack in 2000 which led to declining health. He was removed from life support yesterday.

Heading to the Beer Festival later on, to meet up with polarbear, delilahbowie, and karzon. SHoudl be interesting. Looks like I'll be spending the weekend with dravengodvamp, which is always interesting, so if ya don't see me much, that's why.
