  1. Remember the Chat Room? Oh, the glory days of TB. 

  2. The chat room has not been properly setup by the administrator (the chat room account number has not been supplied).

      I'm not sure what happened to the mods and admins. It's disappointing how long everything takes to get fixed here. TB Red, TB Black, what's the deal? WE all want this to be an active resource. Communication and efficiency are key to making that happen.

      I send the admins a message on June 8 and never heard back. I just assumed that who ever was driving this thing had popped open the door and jumped out, leaving the rest of us in the back seat as the car continued to swerve along.

      Hey guys. New TB Red here. Sorry, we've had some personnel changes over the summer, and a few areas clearly went under the radar. I've asked our team to take a look at this issue this week. It seems from my predecessor's notes its a ridiculous issue with the forum theme (because bland blue was apparently a luxury pick - LOL). Will track back with updates as I get them. Apologies again for the hiccup here.

  3. Reading through the Black List Logline Game: Take a drink every time you read the words "based on a true story." See if you live til the end.

      y'all... I say we start a hashtag campaign #blacklistsotrue

  4. Football season is almost here! The Tracking Board league will continue in its 3rd yr under new leadership - Reader George is the new commish. We still have spots open. Here's the link http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/league/trackingboard

      Let's go, folks. We're aiming for 12 teams and extra payouts.

      Thanks, Sankofa. Definitely miss the chat crew. Might have to drop by to celebrate my TB Launch Pad results - oh, snap! Don't I wish lol

    3. CastorTroy16


      How you make the BL, CB. That would be sweet for Henchmen!

      Reader George

      Only a fool would underestimate the henchman! Been too busy to chat, too. Seems everyone in the office is cramming to get stuff done before the holidays and crazy busy.


  6. We opened the fantasy league to 12 teams due to overwhelming response. If you want to join, send my your email via PM.

  7. We had some fun with a TB member-only fantasy football league last year. Any interest in raising it from the dead?

      Can we get this league to 12? Expand the winnings?

    3. vincenzo


      I'm in if there's space left.

    4. CastorTroy16


      I expanded the league to 12 teams. Still waiting on two teams from last year to re-join.

  8. Wish it was good screenwriting news to report, but it is still exciting. Got word from Temple that I will be fully funded in my doctorate program this fall! Now I'll have plenty of time to hack out queries to managers lol

      Thank you all for the kind words. Hope to share some good screenwriting news in the future. :)

  9. Well, now I can finally read that True Detective treatment :)

      Static, I was surprised by how different the treatment was. There was a ton of material in the episode outline that didn't make the cut - I think for the better.

    3. rywold




      I was hoping it would have more detail about the last episode in the treatment, but I can see why the last two were lumped together. Gives him some wiggle room, there.

    4. Elliott79




      Absolutely loved the final episode. My only gripe would be the early scenes where we spend time with killer.


      Surely we should have only ever seen him from Cohle/Hart's perspective?

  10. Blithering Idiot is one potent beer.

  11. I think by the end of watching True Detective, I will have earned 3 credits for philosophy, 3 credits for theology, and may find out who killed this woman....

      Are there credits for alcoholic?

    3. Allen


      So, good then?

    4. CastorTroy16


      It's hard to tell neo45. I'm into it and will probably watch the entire season. i like where they're taking future seasons, as well.

  12. There's a great show I think you should check out - it's called Breaking Bad with the dad from Malcolm in Middle - yeah, I know right. But he's awesome in it. Two episodes into season 3. Looking forward to more… Yeah, I'm late to the party but this show is awesome!

      I'll have to save that one, WordSmith - no spoilers!

    3. CliveBarks


      Not a spoiler. It's a music video.

      humph. sounds to me like a WEEDS ripoff.

  13. Sometimes I lay awake at night and ask myself: What is the meaning of life? Then a voice answers me: "I before E except after C!" - Peanuts

      Is still $50 buy in or just for fun? Would prefer just for fun but might play either way.

    3. CastorTroy16


      Everybody wanted to make it competitive and make it $50... Join ...it's gonna be fun...up to 7 teams

    4. Reader George

      Reader George

      I don't mind playing for less if it gets us up to 10. I'd rather play with some $$$ on the line.


  16. Was thinking about starting a TB fantasy football league ... 50 a team. Message me if you're interested.

    1. aphid47


      English Premier?

    2. timorawe


      Will the league consist of only Tracking Board members? Snake or Auction draft and what site will it be on? Just curious. Thanks.


    3. CastorTroy16


      American football... TB only... Snake draft with 10 or 12 teams depending on interest

  17. K Ryans is the real Santa Claus

  18. Damn - two years in a row my little horror spec finished in the top 10-15% of Nicholl's but missed the quarterfinal cut. Guess it's time for another rewrite then onto the next one!

      It's a coming of age drama centered on a teenage car theft during Hurricane Katrina

    3. CastorTroy16


      Well done. Good luck with the next cut!

    4. Zmanx


      Thanks! Keeping my fingers crossed.

    4. CastorTroy16


      Dressed to Kill is coming up the next two Fridays on MGMHD

      Asshats! I mean them, not you guys.

    3. axalon


      I thought it was okay...


      I'm not much of a horror fan though.


      The shot composition was terrific though I have to say.

    4. ... who are those guys?

      ... who are those guys?

      Well said, Mike. I'm a comic fan... yet if I see one more blow 'em up beat 'em down spandex wearing blockbuster I'm going to turn into one of those curmudgeons who pines for movies "the way they used to make them."

  22. Watching the original Evil Dead in anticipation of the remake release on Tuesday. Anyone know if Unrated blu-ray is in the works?

    1. dsjones


      Pretty sure there's an Unrated cut. Though technically it was rated. NC-17

  23. Anyone care to share the Michael J. Straczynsky draft of WWZ? [email protected] - Take that ISO! lol

    1. Pompalompa


      amazing user name

    2. CastorTroy16
  24. You know it must be a good horror spec if it's (N/A) in the Specs of 2013 list

    1. Escapist


      to which spec are you referring?

    2. CastorTroy16


      There's about 10 I want to read - Haunt, Home Movies, House on the Borderland, The Unholy, Visions - all scripts I'd love to read!
