self portrait (escher)

As I work on one thing, seeds of the next are planted.

Yes, I know. I'm way behind on the big update about all those projects I can't seem to finish. Which is almost poetic, don't you think?

For all those continuity hounds out there, this post takes place after that one.

Random story ideas in the back of my head have started to take form and make a certain amount of sense. What started as a simple word association has turned into fleshed out characters with conflicting worldviews. And, they actually serve a greater metaphor, which is real handy when you're trying to impose structure on something abstract.

Anyway, I'm anxious to see where that all's going. But I don't look forward to trying to sell it.

This is me at the pitch meeting:
    It's like the Odd Couple meets... well, it doesn't meet anything. But Jack Klugman's character is a robot now, and Tony Randall's a talking snail!
I kid you not.

...yeah, maybe I'll abandon this one.

Radio Plays!!

If I wasn't going to buy an iPod the moment I could afford one before, I certainly am now.

Sadly, that could take a while.

Man... This guy's selection would have kept my Dad busy for *whips out calculator* about two years. Though, maybe less - I assume these are monophonic, so he might conceivably have listened to one in each ear while reading a novel, cleaning his glasses, and driving the Autobahn.

Intelligence Failure

Why did no one tell me the A-Teens released a third album*?

That Alice Cooper makes a guest appearance on there, reprising his 1972 hit "Schools Out"**?

That one of the import versions includes a cover of "One Night in Bangkok" (from the musical "Chess")***?

I demand an inquery.

Current Mood:

*don't judge me. i also listen to good music.

**we can laugh, but a similar move revived aerosmith's career back in 1986.

***that's actually not as random as it may seem.
