Movie News.



I've been watching a lot of movies lately. A lot. I've been trying to avoid the political campaign because it just depresses me, but that's not the big reason.

The big reason is, I'm back writing this screenplay for dough. The producers found a new money guy, someone who has loads of money and considers himself a film genius.

I have my doubts.

But I'm not looking at the money as just numbers going into my checking account. I'm looking at the money as our ticket to the long-delayed trip I've promised Jenny for years. No, I'm not writing for money. I'm writing to take my baby to Italy. Ciao.

That's the only thing that will make the next two months bearable. Just like basic training, I know it will end.

I'll write more about this later, after next week's first production meeting, but for now, let's move on to other news.

A producer wants to option Beneath A Panamanian Moon.

That's great, but I know better than to cash that check. Still, it's like getting a smile from a pretty young girl. You know she's just being nice, but it can still make an old man's day.

You have a nice day, too.

Tonight, Molly's band is playing the James Joyce pub in Durham. Show up and I'll buy you a Guiness. That's a promise.

If I were closer, I'd be there-break a leg Molly.

Fingers crossed on the movie, and on Italy.

If you get to the movies, I recommend Juno-great flick, you leave feeling good.

Even someone pretending to want to make your book into a movie is better than someone saying "your book would make a terrible movie," huh? You can have my Guinness as you toast yourself!

Whoo-hoo! That's great news, David!

And good luck to Molly!

Meant to ask-if your book makes it into a movie-will that lady be out front when it shows? Cause I'm only going if she is. I want to steal her sign.

norby,

That's no lady. That's my mom.

Yes, I learned everything I needed to know on my mother's knee.

Good news, David!
So when will you schedule your next party at Blue Bayou? Will Molly be playing there soon?

Can I come to your next family reunion?

Damn, wish I was within 3000 miles of Durham! Guinness...

I like it when pretty young women smile at me, even though I know they don't mean it.
