About Me

Nixon was a fucking crook. As a teenager I marched on the UN in 1982 with a million other people demanding we get rid of the threat of nuclear weapons hanging over our heads. Since then I've worked to get Democrats elected like John Aristotle Phillips, known as the A-Bomb Kid when he ran for Congress against Stuart McKinney in CT in the 80's (we lost twice) through the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012. I want to legalize cannabis, reform our prison for profit system, cut our military budget, get out of Afghanistan and push solar energy panels into every building in the USA.

The very first screenwriting book (written in 1913) is free on Amazon this weekend.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UMSC33M/secretsofactions

Screenwriting books did not begin with Syd Field, in 1913 there were four screenwriting how to books published, with at least one more in the following year. There have been screenwriting books for as long as there have been films! So let's take a look at one of the most popular books from this era, "How To Write Photoplays" by the #2 screenwriter at the time, Anita Loos.

In addition to the full text of the original book and a complete screenplay by Loos, we'll look at Ms. Loos' career, the role of women in Hollywood at the time (over half of all copyrighted films in this period were written by women), and the reason why there were so many women screenwriters, producers, directors and studio executives. Hint: the 19th Amendment.

We will also look at how the lessons from this 1920 book apply to screenwriting today.

60,000 words total, including the original 40,000 word book *plus* 20,000 words which are brand new for this edition! Also includes vintage photos, a real screenplay page from 1920, and some wonderful historical photos of the women's movement (including the "Silent Sentinels" chained to the White House gate!). This book is where history and screenwriting intersect, and the first in a series of *two dozen* vintage screenwriting books with added screenwriting information and historical information.

Summing up the Mayor's press conference from Ferguson MO:

Same old same old.
Business as usual.
That is all.

Suspending Brian Williams doesn't fix NBC News REAL Problem....

Chuck Todd is still hosting Meet The Press.
This is the guy who says he has no duty to tell the truth or challenge liars on his show.
That's much worse than the fib Williams told but NBC is cool with Chuck Todd so NBC News has NO credibility.

It's not too late west coast. At 11:30 SNL is re-running it's very first episode with

host, George Carlin.
Set dvr now.

I went to a trade show for 3D printing today....

It was on the news last night and today was the last day.
What interesting technology, with a variety of applications in art and industry.
It was simply fascinating.

Summing up the State Of The Union:

Prez; "Do something to help the country and our citizens."
GOP Congress: "No"

The Republicans biggest priority in Obama's first term was to prevent his getting a second term...

so we know how effective they are at achieving their goals.
Bring it GOP Congress, start looking like fools in 3...2...1....

2015: The Confederate States of America are in charge of the US Congress.

Rep Scalise, the David Duke without the baggage, is representative of the Congress we have now.
Did we lose the Civil War?
it sure looks like it in the Congress.
The Confederate South is running this government.

RE: A Third Bush running for President - Fool us Once shame on you, Fool us Twice, shame on us, fool

us a third time and the country is going to hell in a hand-basket.

"You're a racist, now pass the stuffing."

Every holiday dinner conversation at my family's house summed up in one sentence.
