some days, I just don't even know.

Well I was going to get back into my blog routine with a post about last night’s new episode of House, which was good and fell somewhere between- it was all a dream! -and- he was dead the whole time! I look forward to new and creative torments for our hero throughout the rest of the season. I will point out something I thought was notable, the fact that NO ONE seems to acknowledge- that House continues to become MORE and MORE uncomfortable every time Dr. Cameron gets warm and fuzzy on him. Why is no one noticing that it seriously unnerves him? The smart money is on maybe he’s having an allergic reaction to her unconditional luuuub! Poor House, daddy never hugged him. So teh emo.

But that’s about all I’m going into, because my whole mental reality has been derailed upon reading the news that

Robbers Net $4M in Coin Convention Heist.

Seriously. I know I’m a slow ass writer, but goddammit.

noteworthy whims

Decided to take a swing at the ABC/Disney Fellowship last week, oh, about Wednesday. The deadline was Friday. Usually I’m all about ‘well in advance’ but this one is free, aside from the notarized, DNA stamped application packet. It was nice to find out that I know someone who can notarize on short notice. I should just start getting things notarized at random, or better yet, I could become a notary and then just notarize like a crazy person. I could notarize birthday cards and letters, my bills…*Cue HARP MUSIC and wavey dream-sequence transition* At a movie theater:
Concession Drone: “Are you sure you don’t want to upsize to a large popcorn?”
Me: “No thanks.”
Concession Drone: “It’s only 50 cents more!”
Me: “Seriously, dude, no thanks.”
Concession Drone: “That’ll be 11 dollars.”
Me: “Alright, I’m going to need you to sign and date here, *stamp*. If this popcorn sale comes up in court, you’ll be called as a material witness.”
Concession Drone: “…”
But don’t worry concession drones, because as most people know- I DO NOT EAT MOVIE THEATER POPCORN! Unless I’m there and I have made it myself. The scars.
Meanwhile I need to come up with a new title for “The Laugh Dance” As I rewrite I discover I have absolutely no clue what this script is about anymore. And I’ve renamed all the characters and locations. And maybe kinda thinking about making it neither romantic or comedic. Actually that last one wouldn’t really involve any work I could just leave it the way it is and accomplish that.I always feel like I forget how to start a script when I pass Go.

And for final mention, I repeat a post from several months back- Futurama has been picked up for 13 more episodes by Comedy Central. With all the “they were doinging it, they weren’t…” it can be confusing. Also confusing- Comedy Central being involved. But Fox is still on board all the voice cast is signed and we can hoping the writers/producers will be the same also. So if you’re counting 13 new episodes + the 4 DVD movies = 17 new adventures and I can’t imagine it won’t do well, so who knows what the future holds for Futurama! We love you Bender!

Keeping at it

Jeez, blog, you need to update yourself. So I’ve been plowing along on Nickel and Dime, it has to go in the mail Monday morning, and I’ve reached equilibrium on the draft that’ll be going out. Just a few tweaks on spelling etc tonight, and I’ll hit up Kinko’s tomorrow and that’ll be it. I’m going to throw in on Austin this year too, just to keep things increasing every year, as some sort of delusion toward progress, whatever.
So now what? Well I probably get started on implementing the ACTUAL rewrite that I had plotted out for N&D, maybe retackle that Laugh Dance rewrite, since it’s so nicely still on the sidebar here, and it’s similar genre for N&D so I have two of that in somewhat decent shape before I move on to something else. Brain though has been giving me some feedback, with a few ideeeas, not that I guess I’m ever at a shortage for that, it’s just being geared for one particular idea at any given moment. That’s about all I got going on in the profession front right now.
Other stuff wise, weather has been nice. The Cubs are killing me, the Canes are killing me, I don’t know what the hell is going on. Situation with the Cubs, man, got dire last was when superstar Lee goes out with a broken hand, and with Kerry Wood and Mark Prior still not healthy, I mean, hell, they slide to 4th in the Central. Coupla guys stepping up, and they’re 2 games behind, but April is ending, they need to shape up. Another baseball bit, I’m annoyed Griffey Jr. is STILL on the DL. If he was healthy I’d have another team to pull for. As it is, the METS, the NY METS are on FIRE. 6 wins up on Atlanta. BWAHAHAHA! I’m sorry Braves-fans, but Atlanta is like the bizarro-Yankees and I still can’t quite pull for them with a good conscious. (I still have playoff grudges from back a few years). So my team prospect of the year is the Mets, since Bonds have given cancer to the Giants. It’ll take a while before I can feel okay about calling the SF Giants one of my franchises. (But I’ll still totally say I’m a NY GIANTS fan. Coz I am! Which = like the Mets obviously.)
Canes, jeez they tie up the series 2-2 last night in a good game. Cam Ward is doing well, but he gets the kid treatment a little, not that that bothers me, starting in playoffs at 22 years old, that’s pretty heafty stuff. I’d like to see it finish in 6, but I expect 7, with a Canes win of course. Also- STAAL. We have a nice roster, and they SHOULD do well. But after the season ending losing streak, well go fig.
TV- House excellent, excellent, excellent. Doris Egan and crew just punch my buttons so effectively. House vs. God was well written, everyone was in top form, and they threw in some really nice Wilson-story. Almost feels like they’re priming something, and yeah, okay I read the spoilers, but I didn’t come across my theory, although given my insanity, it’s unlikely I would. Anyway, sweeps is going to kill me if nothing else. Advise fans to stay tuned in. Other favorite Tuesday shows: poor poor Scrubs gets ignored on broadcast night, but I d/l! JANITOR! Love! NCIS has been consistantly strong all season. Man, I think back to last year, and Kate gone, but they have done a GREAT job with Ziva’s character, the cast is fun, the really seem to enjoy working together, I love Sean Murray, hell all of them, but I’ll give Sean the shout cause he doesn’t seem to have the crazy fans in spades- so there you go, Sean, you’re very own insane fan! Pay no attention to that person in your garbage…
Okay done babbling for the now, need to hack back at it. Here are some fun YTMNDs for you courtesy IRC- Grand Prix Butt racing ( and Giraffes have one weakness… ( Enjoy!

fall tv and vancouver studios

It being season premiere week and all, it’s not a good time for my cable to go out. Being the resourceful individual I am, I managed to see most the shows I was hoping to by hopping from friends and family houses. Thanks guys, although now that I look at it, it’s sort of odd that I just turned up demanding control of the remote. Such is the nature of my television habit. Anyway, episode reviews…
