The last book I read was Bride Stripped Bare by Anonymous

Currently re-reading Clockwork Orange because I haven't got anything else, but its still cool to read.

What was Bride Stripped Bare like?

I read the foreword by the girl's mother one day while I was in a bookstore, but not the whole thing [for obvious reasons].

Hal Hartley's screenplay The Unbelievable Truth.  Next up: Trust.
more than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. one path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. the other, to total extinction. let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
woody allen (side effects - 1980)

Whoa...  ouch...

um... all I heard was him mention that he was in Austin and another where he said to ignore Entertainment Weekly and to take it easy (what was that about?)

Now I feel like I really missed something... does he want to be a chick or something?



I really don't feel I can say now since it's been removed to protect Chuck. Never mind, just read Survivor, it'll still be great.

""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Very good. 'Part 1 -The Character Driven Approach' was very informative and helpful in looking at different approaches to starting/writing. The last two parts were good, but didn't really relate to the screenplay I'm working on now and were kinda redundant for me (stuff I already know and have read in other books), but it would still be a great book to read and refresh one self before starting a new screenplay.

yeah I know what you mean...but if nothing else it at least gives you some good points to consider while writing.  But more along the lines of just sparking ideas.  Never the less, it's a pretty good read, as well as not to long.  I don't know if I really have an opinon on Ryan, but I would reccomend it to anyone writing...as it made me think about some things that I probably wouldn't have otherwise.  Mac, do you belong to that that book club (or anyone for that matter)?

Not anymore since it went out of business.

wow...I didn't know that, but might explain why I haven't gotten anything from them in a while.  Oh well, I got a lot of pretty cool books from them, even some of the shitty monthly selections I got stuck with, cause I never returned the order card were good.

This book is a fun read so far, I've only finished the interview with the Coens. It's great to hear the experience put into anecdotal form, making it more accessible.
