Team Zach (Galifianakis)

I didn’t know who he was a few days ago. And then I watched Visioneers. Then I saw his stand – up comedy. Then I embarked on the Hangover adventure. Then I experienced Due Date. I’ve decided that Zach Galifanakis is a pretty special breed of actor/comedian. In that, he can and actually does act. … Continue reading

In Which Script Frenzy Approaches

Script Frenzy is drawing nearer each day, and I am terrified. At least with NaNoWriMo, my idea was plotted and ready to go, so the minute I sat down and began writing, it all just flowed out. I have decided on a Script Frenzy idea but I still need to go through and create a … Continue reading

My Nemesis the Squirrel

I spent a second weekend in a row working on the yard to get it ready for gardening. Two weeks ago it was in no shape to have anything planted anywhere. The yard was trashed, the bone-dry dirt full of old toys and broken glass and odd pieces of rusted metal. I even found several … Continue reading

In Which I Am Roped into Script Frenzy After All

A friend asked me the other day to partner with him for script frenzy, to provide one another with support and advice throughout April. Well, I need some advice now: what the heck am I supposed to write? I have a few ideas, but nothing solid. I know that I would like to go with … Continue reading

I Thought You Liked Me, or, the Spam Is Winning

For some strange reason, I have signed into WordPress every day the last two weeks to find at least two spam messages waiting for me. Last week, I had a wopping THIRTY spam messages hanging out in my spam folder, waiting like sheep for me to savagely destroy them. Which I did. It was fun. … Continue reading

A Boring Day and Some Great Advice

I don’t have a lot to say today. This weekend I did absolutely no writing because I spent both days tilling my yard so that it will be ready for planting. It has come along way from those days last summer when the house was half-renovated and the yard was full of trash from the … Continue reading

In Which I Fall Asleep at My Desk on a Friday

So, it’s Friday. I’m bored at work (as usual). I’m considering jumping into Script Frenzy, in April. I have a few ideas that I’ll need to plot if I’m going to do so, but I think it could be fun. NaNoWriMo was fun and just the sort of challenge I needed. I feel as if … Continue reading

In Which I Review “Dead Man”, a Jim Jarmusch Film

The boyfriend and I watched a great movie the other night. It’s an indie style western filmed in 1995 by director Jim Jarmusch and starring Benny and Joon-era Johnny Depp (my favorite Johnny decade). The film follows William Blake (Depp) as he travels from Cleveland to the rough West,  believing he he has a job … Continue reading

In Which I Question the Role of Women in Westerns

I’ve harped on this before, and I will do so again. I love Westerns. I really, really do. It’s  new found love but love nonetheless. But I have a problem, and it’s the same problem I’ve had with many other genres of film. Why are all the women in westerns prostitutes or fearful farm women? … Continue reading
