Yeesh... what. a. month. But soooo fuckin good to be back...
Sadly, the pendulum does swing both ways, so as productive and "good-manic" as i was, i have currently been lazy and.. not "bad-manic" (i think ive made it clear how my "bad-manic" goes).. but not definitely not productive. To be fair though, i dont have a computer, and have had a lot of distraction with my best friends wedding (not the movie, but if it came on, id probably watch it), and Halloween (partied sober! wooo! it can be done!) and baseball (San Francisco exploded!).. but still! Excuses Excuses! But i just wanted to catch yall up and again thank you for all the encouragement and support...
good luck my man, remember finding forester and the advice given "the first draft is from your heart. the second is from your head."
This is so fuckin true.. it's a lovely heart draft if i might say so myself, but a head draft of this thing is where the real work begins..
i knew the story i wanted to make and had an idea of some of the characters but i had no idea "who" they were when i started this.. but the time i wrote "The End", i not only loved these people, but i knew every fuckin thing
about them, it really is very bizarre "magic".. but now comes the hard work of getting into all these peoples heads as i rewrite and personalize they're dialogue and motives..
I think he made the whole thing up.
...we may have just witnessed an acute psychotic episode. 72teef just "left the building", mentally speaking .
I didnt make it up! and in fact, the stuff i didnt even bother to mention makes it all the more clear that this was in fact "an episode" ... but, as i mentioned earlier, it was a "good-manic", thank god.
Your detective work never ceases to amaze me ol buddy.
I wont fuck this life, P.
72 mentioned that he planned on taking off to write his feature with his bro (blood or sworn?).
Yes! this did all start as an early childhood dream my brother (sworn) and i had as we were hitting puberty.. "One day, we will be Writing Partners!" and Two Little Indians & Co. Productions
will be our company.
With his wedding afoot and baby already on the way, it had lit the fire under our asses to get our lives started. But, with his wedding and baby on the way, it also left him with little time for us to really collaborate on this one like I'd hoped.. but he's the only one who has read this so far and his plan is make his own 1st draft with hopes of adding enough so that in the end, we can share this.. but it is more personal than i realized so this one just might be mine, I'm not sure yet. But the good news is we did talk of another story that already have a great opening scene and killer fuckin ending.. so i guess it's "in the canon"?
i kinda feel like a schmuck already saying that, but earning the right to use lingo like that is what were working toward and as long as we stick to it, then yes, i can say Two Little Indians & Co. have 2 projects in canon. It's gotta start somewhere...
His sisters were babes.
Ima slap you pete.
I fuckin' love you, teef. So glad your rock bottom has you doing something constructive. When I hit my rock bottom I just travelled the country to visit alleged UFO crash sites. True story.
I'll be praying for you. I'm not religious, but it seems like a nice gesture and it doesn't cost any money. Also it makes me feel a lot better.
love yoo too dood
and Yes, We Need to Hear More of This!
and your prayer must have worked, man, i mean, i said id do things important before but never have i stuck to it like this, and the day you wrote that was the day i need it most. That night i wrote for hours and hours until the words "the end", so i thank you Brother, very much, and I'm glad it made you feel good too
That's great to hear. Congratulations!!! Now...
Yes, thank you sir
So... What do you guys think the title is referring to?
the song prominently featured in 'American Werewolf In London',
or could it be...
well, the song is present, as is the moon, but quite honestly, ur right, it's the beer! Months ago when i wrote the first scene, i finished the bottle in my hand, looked down and realized how beautiful those two little words were.. Blue Moon.. i just love it.
Kind of like Reservoir Dogs
, i just think the title sounds good but i figured if someone wants a deeper explanation, it'll be this: "Well it would be too obvious to call it "Sad Son", so Blue
is a synonym of Sad
is the opposite of Sun which has the same pronunciation as Son
, hence, Blue Moon
but really, it's just the beer i love
I'll read that shit if you ever want some feedback.
So here's the plan: Ima write my 1st draft, my head-draft
, which ive finally started yesterday.. once the typed 1st draft is done, it goes out to all minds and friends and family i respect for feedback and input.. from there, a second draft, and from there, storyboards, and from there i guess we've got a movie on our hands that will take as many people that want to be involved to make.. yeesh, that sounds insane, but i guess thats it, thats how it goes...
im giving my self 6 months to get to final draft and storyboards, so March 28th is my deadline to have a complete definitive film in mind.
ok.. here i still go...
