(Amazing view from the waiting area on the airport, it’s far away but the Empire State Building is so much higher than the rest)
Honestly what can you write after a post like the last one.
It’s far from as interesting, but this is the best I could come up with.
- I saw Bill Bailey on Thursday and he was hilarious. I had seen one of his shows on the telly a while ago, but seeing him live is even better. The Gielgud theatre is also a nice size for a gig like this, not too big and I had a front row seat which was great. The show was both fun but also taught me a thing or two about the Brits. And he is a genius musician too.
Here are some great Bill clips:
TV Tunes (And let’s face it the BBC News does have an awesome tune)
You can catch Bill in London until the 24th of January. Recommended.
- After a long period of crap films in the cinema, there seems better times ahead. Today I saw Defiance with Daniel Craig which was great. There is Slumdog millionaire, Frost/Nixon, Milk, Valkyrie, Underworld (yeah ok but Bill is in it) all coming out in January. Good stuff.
- And then there are the non-xmas-cards. I am starting to feel a tiny bit embarrassed and uncomfortable now because your cards are so much cooler and better and groovier than mine. And not only that, people have been sending me more than cards, ScraBill, DVDs, film cans, cups, sweet heart. I will take a photo when all cards is in and post it here. But Thank You seems a too simple a word.
- After that letter I – I have decided to hand my feature film script to the BBC. BBC Writersroom is on tour and visiting London next Thursday, they encourage new writers to hand in their scripts so that’s what I am going to do. I might just do some final editing the coming days, but I will give it a go. Here is what they do: their script readers read the first 10 pages of your script. If they like it, it gets read completely and you will get feedback on your script. If they don’t like the first 10 pages nothing happens and you won’t hear anything. It’s free to send your script, I am not counting on anything, so let’s see what happens. I just feel that this script deserves a chance, and I have nothing to lose.
