Spring in the Air!

I love spring. BUT there is one major thing that really irks me when the snow starts melting. This happens especially in Duluth, because people are dirtier here. People walk there dogs and because it's winter they just cover up the dog poop with snow. So now that the snow is melting there is dog poop EVERYWHERE! And it STINKS! So these dogs pooped months ago and their poop is being resurrected like new, because it's warm and moist again. It's absolutely disgusting. Why can't people be responsible and bring baggies with for their dogs?! It's not that hard.

Farting at work

Should you ever become so comfortable with your workplace that you fart out loud in front of your coworkers.


It feels so good to finish things.
I have finished a 5-page screenplay for my writer's group contract.
We all make contracts for ourselves and if we don't complete them we have punishments. :( So sad. My punishment is having to give plasma and then donating that money to the writer's group. Suck!
Well, I finished my contract... and right in time for my vacation.

My screenplay shows the life cycle of a Pabst Blue Ribbon can. Riveting... yesssss... It's not great, but I'm glad it's done. My supple arms couldn't handle the prick of a needle.

Help me bRaInStOrM....

I have this idea for a screenplay. Just a 5 minute piece. I want to do really tight closeups of people's faces while they are talking about something. It will cut back and forth from person to person never showing the scenery. Then at the very end the shot will pull out and reveal a scene that is totally different from what you'd think from the conversation. I want to leave people with a, "What the HECK was that?!" feeling. So the parts I'm having slight issues with are coming up with the content of the conversation and coming up with an end scene and ending action that will boggle people's minds.

Here are some of the ideas I've had for ending scenes:
-Coroners or EMT's zipping up a body bag
-the characters are actually people in a painting, like a Botticelli or something
-people are floating in the ocean after a shipwreck or plane wreck
-prisoners on a chain gang
-the characters are at the crucfiction of christ

Suggest, suggest...

One of the small local television stations in my market has been basically closed down. All but 6 or 7 employees have been laid off. KDLH and KBJR's owners have a shared services agreement. That means that KDLH's local news aspect is being produced by Granite broadcasting (KBJR). This is legal according to the FCC. Trajic loss of a talented news station bringing a different voice to the Northland. Now we just get to hear KBJR's voice on two different stations.

oh my bosh


We just learned about this crazy renaissance artist names Bosch. He does wicked fantasy looking depictions of biblical things. They question his religion and whether he was on something because his work is so bizarre and nutso.
Check out his stuff. I love it. It's all gobliny.

Who decided to nickname male genitalia the "family jewels"???
It's weird and icky!

In past times the family jewels were the inheritance or symbol of wealth for the whole family. I do not believe that one's testicles are an adequate symbol of one's family wealth.
It's just silliness!
