25. Been gone for a while.

If you read my older posts you will see that initially I was quite freaked out over losing my tv.  But now it’s become just a part of life and to be honest, I don’t really think about it that often.  That’s why you haven’t heard from me.  It just didn’t seem that interesting to blog everyday with entries like “nothing new to say”, “haven’t thought about it” etc.  LOL

But the truth is, it’s not that hard to live without tv.  You just have to adjust.  Initially I was renting every frickin movie on the shelves at BB. But now it’s hard to find the time to watch them (Val Kilmer and Cuba Gooding, Jr must be really bored these days  LOL).  While I haven’t solved global warming, or even made any hugely dramatic changes in my own life, it is a different lifestyle.  I’m mostly gravitating towards playing card games  online now to fill the extra time, but even that, I can only do so much of.  And it’s still more intellectually challenging than watching “New York Goes To Work”.

I do find that I miss out on certain conversations lately, and I do so miss my three amigos.  Good times. Hopefully  I will continue to be more and  more productive as I adjust.  Happy Thanksgiving!

24. Back from my meeting.

Well things are really looking up!  I just optioned the script!  Yay!  It’s a “Shallow Hal/Wedding Planner” kind  of thing and I think it really has potential.  It’s a little too short (70pgs) and needs a little tweaking of the two main characters, but it’s a great concept and is well written.  If we can attract the right stars it could be a studio picture.

The writer seems to agree with my notes and is excited to take on the re-write well.  That’s always a good start.  He gave me a free short-term option in lieu of my notes and helping him re-craft the script.  A fair trade, I think.  I’m excited about it.

Also my other project, the Christmas script, just attracted a well known character actor as the lead and we’ll be taking him to lunch next week.  Sweet.

The strap on my rollerblades broke this morning half way into my route.  I had to walk two and a half miles back to the Santa Monica pier, wearing only socks.  Damn, my feet hurt and it took forever!

23. Week Three: Well, well, well…

I haven’t been blogging every day because, quite frankly, I haven’t been thinking about tv very much at all.  Yes, I’ve been renting an ass load of movies, but since movies are the business I’m in, it’s turned out to be very beneficial.  It cost me a bit too much, but my addiction demanded that SOMETHING come out of that little black box!  Anyway, it’s refueled my love of cinema and now I’m back in the saddle again with some of my feature film projects.

I’ve started reading scripts again and realize I have a few gems sitting in my inbox.  It’s been way too long, I really need to stay on top of things.  I had over 150 scripts waiting to be read.  Yikes!  That’s what I get for procrastinating.  One of them’s already been made.  Damn.  No more tv, a little less movie watching and more movie reading!  LOL  Also, I need to allot some time to get back to editing my documentary projects.  More on those later.

As  a matter of fact I have to go now because I have a 4:30p phone meeting with a writer in Florida who sent me the cutest little movie script.  I’ll tell you more about it later tonight.
