Writers Wanted! MovieBytes is looking for articles. Call for Submissions
I've never seen a more upbeat and polite bunch of losers in my life. Afraid of offending Greg or just good sports? Neither in my case. I'm pissed. My failure to advance is a travesty of justice. A testament to the incompetance and poor taste of the fellowship judges. Next year I'm going to take my $30 straight to the blackjack tables where someone like me at least has a shot. What are they looking for anyway? Finding Forrester? White bread fluff! Arlington road? White bread toasted! Don't forget, these are the same people that gave the Oscar to Ordinary People over Raging Bull. Shakespear in Love over Saving Private Ryan. They just don't know what they're doing!... There. Now, isn't that what you really wanted to say? I feel so much better.
Melvin, you're a riot. Better luck next year, at Nicholl or the blackjack table!
Thank you very much!
Actually, Melvin, I'm not angry at anyone involved in the judging. I'm just disappointed with all the jerks, who have ever treated me like a piece of crap and turned my mind into the sort of mush that has caused me to be less than the gifted writer that I had the potential of being.
Guess some "Mr. Wonderful" won't ever have his feet washed by me again.
But, that's another story.
Have we dated?... In all seriousness, you usually spare no expense when taking pot shots at me, but today you definitely seem off your game. I don't know what you're working on, but you might want to try something "light" until you're out of your funk. Or nail me with a couple good zingers. I can take it, and I won't even retort. Feel better, Ashley.
I've known some real Adam Henrys too, but you can't LET them keep you from your talent. If you HAD the potential, you STILL have it.
I think (wouldn't swear to it but I'm pretty sure) that Ashley had tongue pretty firmly planted in cheek when she wrote the above!
Perhaps. But then again, she may be off somewhere boiling a rabbit.
Melvin's right, in a way.
I've been sharpening my machete.
you should all write novels. 99% of the material in american mainstream film is sub-standard and as such expectations for scripts and film-writing is sub-standard. let me tell you something, both saving private ryan and shakespeare in love were pretty banal.
Ashley has written a novel. It's about a woman who is forced to endure mind control experiments by a pre-psychiatry doctor until she is rescued by her true love Melvin. Right, Ash?
You, my dear, have too much time on your hands. Go get a job.
What are you talking about? I counsel troubled teens about substance abuse.
Got both my letters today, no luck. I write those dark, edgy, non-Hollywood ending types. That's just the way I do it.
Keep the faith, Fellow Nicholl Loser!
Do people really call you that, or is this just what you're going to call yourself here (since you've changed your name a couple of times)?
Melvin's a womanizer, BTW. Don't get all jealous.
I love this! The Melvin and Ashley Show. I'm going to be sure to keep tuning in. Great stuff. Thanks for the laugh!!
