Wow is it that time of the year again
I was actually looking forward to seeing this hopeful annual posting from John and he has indeed answered that hope...always a pleasure to read JAL's Annual Seasons Greetings
Here's a salute of Merry Christmas to you and your family. And here's hoping it brings many good tidings to you all...from one devoted fan here in Aus.
Now...to the meat and bones
The movie is still secret since no production decision has been taken, but I see here that you have managed to uncover some details anyway. It´s going to be a majestic and heartbreaking thing.
If its the movie I'm thinking off then I like already
That's if its the one I'm thinking of that combines you with a certain talent who you've worked with before
Just a week ago I was in a meeting regarding the film from Handling the undead. A new production company has taken over and they have done more in four months than the previous one did in four years. This time I really think it´s going to happen. Shooting supposed to start in the summer of 2014.
This I really like
I'm really holding out hope for this as I'm so anxious to see this made into a film
Don´t know if I told you, but a film from Little Star is also in the works. This is only in the first stage, but if all goes as planned it´s going to be directed by the director I would name if I could choose anyone I wanted. I won´t write the script, but my faith in this person is huge. Would love to divulge his name, but I can´t. Keep your fingers crossed that this one comes through anyway
MY GOD IT'S THE XMAS THAT JUST KEEPS GIVING
That I may be even more excited for then the Handling the Undead
movie...not to jinx it, but heres to that ever continuing hope that this will indeed happen
I'd love for Little Star
to be made into a film...been saying that since I read it last year
Unfortunately all this movie and theater business has taken a lot of time from X. The first part is finished, though. 120 pages written. My wife says it´s going to be my best book so far, if I can keep up the quality of those pages all the way to the end. I will pick it up again in january. A dog named Benny is an important character. The lovers in this one is two 50-year old farmers who don´t really acknowledge the fact that they are gay. They just sleep together, are tender towards one another, need each other since their wives left them. They are quite lovely. They listen to Abba.
Sounds interesting so far... the gay lover part intrigues me in a good way...take your time with it Good Sir
Right now I am editing another original story for an anthology by Stephen Jones. A 50-page thing that deals with a creature from swedish folklore in an updated manner, in the vein of the story "Border" from Let the old dreams die, but much more violent.
Okay, I have to mention this and if you read this JAL then I hope you get a laugh out of it...Congrats to you sir, there is a certain scene in BORDER that almost made me yell "WTF" out loud on a train ride into Sydney Central..I was reading it whilst commuting to Work, I got to a certain scene between two certain characters engaging in intimacy...and then it happened, and then I double taked, re-read it and thought "did I just read that right??? WTF is going on"...and I came so close to saying that out loud whilst on the train.
Which is not a knock at BORDER, I very much liked BORDER and once I processed what happened in it and exactly what they were when it ended...then I liked it even more...but just an amusing side antedote for your day
You made me react in the best way possible to that said scene
So the thought of having another short in the vein of BORDER intrigues me
To be honest, quite a lot of time has also gone into playing "Vasebreaker endless" on Plants vs. Zombies. I managed to get to level 44. Anyone break that?
Would that be in the survival mode? (anyone) I haven't touched much of the survival mode...beaten the main quest and done most of the mini games but Survival mode I haven't really touched....oh no scratch that, Vasebreaker is a mini game isn't it??? (its been so long since I've played Plants vs. Zombies)
All the best to all of you. Have yourselves a merry little christmas and a happy new year.
Said it in the opener and I'll say it again in closing...Right back at you Good Sir
Cheers, Merry Christmas to yourself and your family...and a Happy New Year....here's hoping it's a good year for you all
