MA'KAI and other stuff...

I am back with my second consecutive daily post.. which is already a new record for me. I'm mostly doing this for the ONE PERSON who I am certain will read this-- shout out to Rob Levin! Anyways, my day was pretty uneventful. I worked on color stuff and rewrote a couple scenes of the spec pilot I am doing with Doug. I also managed to fit in a game of hide and seek with Paris.

In the evening I went to this bar/restaurant in Santa Monica with members of Top Cow (Chaz, Phil, Rob, Blond... and all of their associates). I chatted for a couple hours about things ranging from my screenwriting crap to whether or not it was a good idea to throw a drink on someone (who will remain nameless) who didn't deserve it. It was good seeing them folks, although I didn't talk very much to Rob or Chaz. I mostly talked to Church, Phil and Taysha's friend Monica.

Okay then... if you're not asleep yet, I will now reveal the mystery friend who is going to be taking the TV class with me...


I'm excited that he and I are gonna be hooking up for ten weeks, since we rarely see each other. I miss the days of wine and Wohlses. Hopefully this will help us get started on the much talked about (by us) writing collaboration we've been looking to do for the last couple years.

That's it for tonight... it's back to work for me, with season five of The Shield to keep me company. I've already seen it, but The Shield is like an old friend that I just don't get sick of.

...but I am going to try and be one. And by that I just mean I am going to TRY to blog more frequently than once a year. I might even start blogging daily.

Yeah right.

I'm a creature of habit and my main habit is to compulsively do stuff for like a week then drop it and move on to something else. But I probably shoudn't be giving away the ending to this blog, so forget I said anything. Anyway, I've been busy as fuck with coloring (beyond my normal busy). One anscillary benefit to coloring so much is that I get to catch up on my TV shows. And this being a really busy time, I've had the opportunity to catch up on Smallville, Lost and The Black Donnellys. Oh and for all you strange people who are reading this without actually knowing me... I put movies and TV shows on while I color-- it helps pass the time. TV shows are better because of the volume and the fact that I don't have to actually look at the show that much. Listening is the big thing in TV shows.

Back to getting caught up on my shows...

LOST- It's amazing to me how this show can continue to give me new information and reveal new stuff while simultaneously confusing the crap out of me. It's like the more information I get the more questions pop up! Yet I am still very much interested in what the hell is going on. I don't think the answers can ever live up to the hype, but I am enjoying the ride. Me still likes.

SMALLVILLE- Six years in and just when I was getting apathetic, they pulled me back into the story. For me the show has always been first and foremost about the moments between Clark and Lana. I'm not a fan of Lois, and I hate seeing Lana with Lex... even though I still feel bad for Lex, knowing he is going to be an arch criminal (if he isnt already). Anyway, after so much water under the Clark/Lana bridge you'd think that they had no more tricks up their sleeves. But alas, the Lex/Lana marriage episode really GOT ME. The writers managed to give me everything I wanted YET AGAIN and then STEAL IT AWAY from me AGAIN. Just like in the Jonathan Kent dies episode, when Clark tells Lana, only to have to undo it. Me still likes this too.

THE BLACK DONNELLYS- This is a new show that is only a handful of episodes in. But I already like it. Maybe it's the romantic sap/sucker in me, but I'm digging the main love story between Tommy and Jenny. Plus, you throw around all the mob/crime stuff and the NYC location and I'm in. It's the kind of show that I wish I could write for. I mean, hell... who wouldn't want to be in a writer's room run by Paul Haggis. I can dream...

Okay... that's a lot of stuff for one blog. Tommorrow I will be talking about the UCLA Extension class I am taking AND the mystery friend who is going to be taking the class with me!

sweet dreams bitches,
