Pubrick

I think he made the whole thing up.

If his story resembles Freddie's as closely as people are saying then we may have just witnessed an acute psychotic episode. 72teef just "left the building", mentally speaking .

Does anyone have the kid on fb to verify?
under the paving stones.

I think what happened is that 72 punched an old lady in the mouth and now he's in jail for month. He wrote that post out on toilet paper and gave it to Pete, who transcribed it through his account in an attempt to preserve some of the guys dignity. Now when his script's out it'll seem like this grand gesture when it's really just the product of a despicable man trying to pass the time. I mean, anyone could write a good script in jail.

pete

fuck you guys just made me stalk him on FB.
I'll tell you what. When Matt was in town for The Master's hush hush screening, we all went out to this little Korean place afterwards for foods and drinks, and 72 mentioned then (and perhaps before too) that he planned on taking off to write his feature with his bro (blood or sworn?).

His sisters were babes.

I fuckin' love you, teef.  :oops: 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.
Falling in love is the greatest joy in life. Followed closely by sneaking into a gated community late at night and firing a gun into the air.

I don't mean to derail this thread, but I would love to hear more about this.
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

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 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...

love yoo too dood  :kiss: 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 :)

So... What do you guys think the title is referring to?
The Moon
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 and Moon is the opposite of Sun which has the same pronunciation as Son, hence, Blue Moon." 

but really, it's just the beer i love :yabbse-grin:

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...

I hope that's all it'll take, but you might wanna do a 3rd, 4th, 5th etc...

If it helps, what i do is usually give a draft to 2-3 people, get the feedback (sift through the subjective feedback, as tastes differ, to find objective solid points) then revise. from that point I give it to 2-3 more and do the same. see, if you unload your 2nd draft onto everyone willing to read it and you get back 8-10 opinions all saying the same thing, then you've essentially wasted all those eyes willing to lend their time. yet if you get the feedback from 2-3 people, change the issues, you still got all those other people to reflect on the screenplay with the major issues resolved. Then when you get to the end of the line, you can go back to those really special and awesome guys/gals that will give it a second go. the second go, though few are willing to do it, is just as important because you get the before and after feedback.

oh so many levels of feedback...

Everyone works differently, and I'm sure you got your method but I think revision should be seen as chipping away delicately, as to not gut it.

I'm so happy for you man! you said you were gonna do it, and you delivered. If we lived in the same city I'd buy you a pint in celebration.

one love.

Blue Moon update:


one of my favorite UCB bits has gotten so much funnier:

Doctor, Always Do the Right Thing.

Yowza Yowza Yowza

PinkTeeth

^heh, this is still funny.

Hiya. It's me 72. Couldn't remember my password to the old profile. So this is a new me, more or less.
Missed this place. Missed a lot of you! but I've never been too far, and even pissed in the kiddy-pool under a different handle for a couple of posts... I think I was kinda coming off shitty and started doing "drunken" posts again. Not cool.
Little afraid to ask, but where's Pubrick gone to? Stefen still around?



Writing is fucking hard. My favorite comparisons from I-can't-remember-who are that it's like pushing a penny across a dirty floor with your nose, or that all it takes is staring at a blank page until blood starts dripping off your forehead. And yeah, just getting it to the computer is harder. I'm not a disciplined typist. I don't hit the keys every day and I hunt&peck.
But I scribble like bastard, constantly, and I waste ink and blast through journals. And it's saved my life. I'm sick when I don't write. I can proudly say that I am a writer.

So Blue Moon and I carried each other for quite a while before taking our collective spots on the shelf. It was my first real whack and it taught me a lot. Mostly a lot of what not to do and the importance of plowing forward.
Then I stopped plowing for a couple of years... got back into habits but never jail again. Identity-crisi and Ego-trips. Heartbreaks and Highnotes, panic and joy... All that good/bad life stuff that's out there to get you if you let it...

Got into the live entertainment industry through ticketing and stage work. Found my muse; A singer/songwriter/sound engineer extraordinaire who taught me how to tap into anger and use it for good. Taught me that if you're going to work hard on something, have something to say. Taught me how to weaponize an idea to use it for change. And I taught her the importance of the opposite. We make a good team. Have some big ideas together and see Disney as the competition. We're shooting for the stars.

I came back because I've finally taken that first step and made a short film, and I didn't want to not share it with a community that I trusted for so long. It's not Blue Moon, nor the angry 2019 homeless-horror film I spent a couple years dedicated to making, nor the PFunk sci-fi love letter, but it's a start... And so far a great start! We got accepted into a shelter-in-place film festival! It's only a 3 minute thing, but I'm proud of it and all the truly hard work we put into it. Special thanks to our beloved Pete for not only getting me and Maya in the same room together for the first time, but for also teaching us both that you have to be dedicated 25/8 until it's done. I'll share the whole thing after the festival take place on July 23rd, but for now here's a goofy teaser.



I love you Xixax, and I'm proud to see so many familiar handles thriving! I could always disappear again, tends to be my m.o. (sorry Pete), but I hope I don't, and I hope keep going, and I hope you reading this are doing okay.

World's gone crazy, and the time is still now, so here we go as always.
