  2. If I'm completely honest, I feel like I've lost my ability to write. I haven't been able to flow at the level I used to be able to in a very long time.

      I've noticed my writing has changed since I quit smoking. All my characters are really angry and cynical.

  4. Oh man, MR. ROBOT officially has jumped the shark. Increasingly uneven and increasingly disappointing.

      Are you kidding, Reader? I realize we all have our own opinions, but this is... nonsense.

      12 minutes in and out I went. All three shows (the two new ones) were pretty crappy. But it is what it is. Hannibal got cancelled. So there's that too.

  8. Scooped. Sigh. http://forum.tracking-board.com/index.php?/topic/12816-rubber-tank-squad-by-david-boito/?hl=+rubber++tank++squad They secured the rights to the documentary film that aired on PBS called "The Ghost Army." I have been working on this script for years and did my research before the documentary came out.

      I've been working on a similar idea about Juan Pujol Garcia who was the only person in world history to receive both the Iron Cross and the OBE due to his work as a double agent who came up with the idea to fool the Abwher and Hitler himself regarding Normandy. The 23rd Special Troops were a part of his con.

      Rewriting is where the real work is. But I try to get at least 3 pages every day.

      Chopin, Rachmaninov, a plethora of unsigned indie bands, Nine Inch Nails, Bowie (early stuff), Mott the Hoople, VH, Cocteau Twins, Roxy Music, The Killers, and all usually in a good day.

  13. I'm freaking out. I know this happens all the time, but I am about 1 or 2 months away from finishing a script that has the EXACT SAME CONCEPT as another project that was announced in the trades. I am very proud of this script and feel it is the best thing I have written. But I can already hear the rebuttals, and I don't want to waste my time working on something that seems to be dead out of the gate. What would you guys do?

      I saw them at their absolute best... it was a rainy Wednesday night in 1974 at the Whiskey. It turned out that was the night they got signed. EVH had already mastered the hammer-ons and Dave was a showman of undeniable quality. Saw them a few more times since, but nothing topped that time.

      I wasn't so much speaking about the talent level or the descending aspect of it (DLR) but more about the event, the closing of Hollywood Boulevard.

      Would that be a comedy? Dramedy at the least. Right?

      Slower than snail gunk. I couldn't get past the first half hour. It almost seems to me that Paul is trying to out-weird Wes. It's not working. At least wes has a story to tell.
