The four year old next door has offered "Thirteen thousand million dollars" for your Spiderman card collection. If his parents are good for it I'd say you've beaten Jeremy Coon.

Hilarious.
I was friend with a man in LA years ago ... and one night, while watching "Three's Company," we decided we could do better than that. We wrote a script, he found someone who played tennis with the producer's boyfriend, the script was read and tossed. But .... in the meantime, he'd gone to his 10th high school reunion and announced that he had a script out for "Three's Company," being considered, etc., was the center of attention.

Eventually, he tiptoed into the screen writing biz again (from social welfare and community planning) and wrote a script for "Trapper MD" (something like that). It sold in 2 minutes.

He quit his job, moved from Pasadena to Hollywood, and wrote full time. He didn't sell another script for 5 years.

Long story a bit shorter: he ended up writing feature films and was the story editor on "Moonlighting," the TV series. He wrote a book ("How to Sell Your Screenplay" -- now, very out of date), and he was up for an Emmy when he died, at 44.

And the second thing your post reminded me of was this:

There are few social assemblages of human beings that are worse than the 10th high school reunion, and your post is the classic reason why: everybody desperately trying to look hot, be cool, appear successful, etc.

Don't let the general posturing of the 10th keep you from going to others: by the time you hit the 40th (I've passed that mark), everyone will have fallen on his or her ass at least once, everyone will have a kid on drugs or in jail or dead, everyone will have been fired at least once, divorced or wanted to be or gay ... and no one cares anymore...you're just grateful to be alive, and to have people who seem to care that you are.

If I tell you my middle name is Rhys, will you tell me what your movie is about?

Greg N.

AC, you're a sucker. Everyone knows what the movie is about. Well, I do at least.

Take that, Austin, TX!
