      Flipping through the script has me wanting to rewatch it. It's so raw, and my memory of the film is that it was too, and it's just kind of the beginning of it all. Maybe nostalgia, but I think it fucking rocks!

      Did you win the lottery?

      It's the coordinates of his 80 million dollars buried in the desert.

  3. And then that happened. Remember people, always, always, ALWAYS BACK-UP YOUR WORK. Computers have a tendency to die. Mine did. Writing is fun.

      Had a scare earlier this week, immediately backed up my entire HD.

      Did you lose something major? Sorry to hear this happen to you. I think we've all had this happen at some point in our lives and it's never a good feeling.

    4. craktactor


      The one thing I did lose, and am most depressed about, was a script I had just started and was going to post the first 10 here for feedback and whatnot. Now, that ain't happenin'. It is still fresh in my grey matter, so that'll help. Other than that, I only lost what i didn't back-up since January. Lessons are fun to learn. I'm going on a weekly back-up now, PLUS, I'm sending everything I write to my email for now on, on a daily basis. :)

      Hopefully they have an intern to handle the tweets because that's a lot of time to waste.

    3. Penelope


      Didn't they lose their assistant to a spec sale?

    4. sbbn


      They have some sort of partnership going on with Twitter so I'm guessing that this twitter thing is motivated more by financial incentives than "this is a fucking brilliant idea!"

  5. Boy oh boy, effing FOX... not only is their news division bullshit, so is their programming people. Really? Ben and Kate cancelled? Suck my what, Fox!

      So 4.5 episodes? That is weird ;)

    3. specwriter


      Yeah, they're idiots, I love Ben and Kate. The cast is hilarious and has so much room to grow. I've tried to watch Raising Hope and just can't get through five minutes.

    4. mikeyP_73


      Well, Nat Faxon has an oscar and just got $10mil for he and Rash's The way, way back at Sundance... it sucks for Ben and Kate ... but Faxon and company will not be crying over their wads of new cash


  6. Congrats to Andrew Parker for the "Worth the Read" today from Carson @ SS.

      Gratz ! I'd pay to see that... screw BJK!

    3. Elliott79


      Well done, Andrew. It sounds like a fun script. Will certainly be reading.

    4. twofingeredtypist


      Excellent! Just popped over and read the SS review now.

  7. Damn nice having Mike De Luca back!

    1. cardney


      Agreed! Saw it pop up in my newsfeed and it made my day.

  8. Damn shame if that's the last "On The Slate"... Mike, it's something I look forward to every week. What ever it is you're doing, or what ever is up, I'm sorry to see you go. Hopefully not though, right? Right. But thanks, man. It's been a rare and true honor to have been a reader. Here's to you Mike. :)

  9. For all you Irish today (that means all of you)... "Here’s to a long life and a merry one. A quick death and an easy one. A pretty girl and an honest one. A cold pint and another one!"

    1. benskelly2


      That's a great toast! Thank you. And I'm the real deal: Fitzsimmons on my Mother's side. Why am i not drunk yet?

      Keep your wits about you!


  10. Happy Holidays to all here at TB and to the TB staff. Here's to a new prolific and breakthrough year for all. Peace!

  11. Hey kiddies... here's a link to a site with 2012 Award stuff if'n you're interested. :)

  12. Hi folks... may I ask that for now on whenever you post a script in the File Exchange, even/and especially if it's an ISO fill, that you add a logline just like K. Ryans (and pretty much everyone else) does. It would be greatly appreciated, because I'm getting tired of downloading the script(s) only to find out it's a piece of crap unworthy of even using at the bottom of a bird cage. Like I said, I would greatly appreciate it (and I'm sure a lot of others too). Thank you. :)

      I judge movies by their titles. Much quicker.

    3. dietgreentea


      Then I assume COCKSUCKERS will be downloaded immediately upon upload when it goes out.

    4. Galleria.Pictures


      That's my kind of movie actually.

  13. I don't know about any of you, but THIS looks incredible. Definitely a MUST WATCH. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/13/awake-first-7-minutes_n_1274043.html?1329173922

    1. TheTypeBMBA


      The script for the pilot was incredible. I highly recommend giving this a watch when it debuts.

    2. treyselman


      @killen8 is a force in the making. Kid's on a roll. His voice will be one that people replicate in the next decade.

    3. elevenbulls


      Never been so emotionally invested in a TV pilot script.

  14. I just read The Fault in our Stars (the screenplay). And all I have to say is WOW. It's not often a script brings emotions out of me, but this one definitely did. A must read, if you haven't yet.

      Reading now and I agree.

      Reader George

      Yeah, really well done.

  15. I just want to say thank you to Ted and K.Ryan and the whole Color Squad from TB and each and every one of you here. You all make coming to this place on a daily basis a worthwhile affair. So thanks. That is all. Carry on. :)

      Merry christmas all :)

      yes thank you from me too! Thanks to everyone here. this place is a great little space on the internet to go to every day. :)

    4. LAscribe88


      Thanks for your efforts, guys! Happy holidays!

  16. I just want to wish everyone here the happiest, merriest, safest and sanest of holidays. So, Happy Festivus to all and to all an impressive feat of strength! :)

  17. I know this has been said umpteen million times, but... Kristen Ryans is the end all be all here at TB. MVP, baby, yeah! Thank you Kristen, for everything, always. :)

    1. reecejones


      My marriage proposal still stands

    2. Elliott79


      If only she could read them all for me too.

  18. I've come to the conclusion that attempting to find and DL evry script from every BL from '05 on is a GIANT WASTE OF TIME. Plus, I'm lazy. So there's that too.

    1. ThaVillain


      Don't most years have Zip files? I haven't downloaded them all but I remember them floating around.


      Or are you just missing a few here and there?

    2. craktactor


      Missing a few here and there. More there than here.

  19. If you haven't read "Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" yet, do yourself a favor and read it. It's a winner. My favorite by far out of both the Black and Hit lists. So there's that. :)

    2. ThaVillain


      So, which one am I supposed to be reading?!?!

    3. craktactor


      The one I have in my 2012 BL is the Pickering script. Perchance that's a mistake? If so, shite! Sorry. It's still a brilliant story well told. *shrug*

    4. craktactor


      Just checked... yeah, I read the Pickering, not the Hogan (didn't have it). Oh well. I stand by my original opinion (just for the wrong year). :P

  20. It's ovah! Cawt 'im! Wicked hodcaw!

    1. dsjones


      As a bostonian, all I have to say to you is...AHH YOU A CAWP?

    2. craktactor


      Nah. But I pockt my cah in the pokin lot. ;)

  21. Just an FYI, people... after I win the lottery toonight I'll be immediately going into film funding/producing mode. Just thought I'd get that out there.

      I had the same idea!


    3. Babzbitela


      me too, I would fund six of my favorite scripts that my clients have RIGHT NOW. In a heartbeat!


    4. Mike


      Babz, your heart's SO in the right place.

  22. Just want to wish everyone here a healthy, somewhat sane, but very safe New Years eve. And here's a toast and a wish for a prosperous and prolific year to all!

    1. sankofa


      Same to you!

    2. sangun


      Here's to not waking up in your car when it's being towed.

    3. Nic.Lishko


      Dude I had to scrape ice off of my morning. The cacti can't take it.

  23. Maybe it's just me, but, I think "George" is a perfect vehicle (and award possibility) for Jack Nicholson. Just a thought.

      I watched Cuckoo's Nest last night. What an amazing film. Why don't they make them like that any more?


      Compare it to this year's Best Picture winner.


      Leagues apart.

    3. axalon


      The bar keeps getting set lower?

    4. Reader George

      Reader George

      Caught Cuckoo's Nest a few weeks ago and wish I hadn't waited so long to see it again. So brilliant. Why don't they make them like that anymore? Risk aversion seems to be the persistent trend. I was joking with some friends the other night that somewhere right now there's an executive wondering aloud if the characters in The Fault in our Stars can be vampires.

  24. Much thanks to Kristen and Ted for the clickity-clicking. All the TB Colors for, well, being you. And a special congrats to Mr. Dollar for making both lists (equally of import). And to each and every member here, may the coming year find you all safe, sane-ish, and as near to your dreams as you can be. :)

      Very kind of you to say Crak. I love this community, the support shown here unparalleled.
