so today i learned that in the late 1800s-early 1900s, the navy became concerned about possible homosexual activity among their sailors
so they sent in decoys, whose job was to pretend to want to engage in homosexual activity in order to find gay sailors
except then the job of the decoy got popular
like, really popular
like… worryingly popular?
reports said that the decoys were performing their jobs with “much enthusiasm and zeal”
eventually the navy decided. to. just stop.
Friendly reminder that the Duckbill Platypus is not beaver sized but the tiniest most cutest patootie being in existence
i thought these things were the size of like, large cats or something. ITS FUCKING TINY JESUS
you can’t be sad looking at this
some lil part of you feels it’s belly rub joy
it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same
I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life
For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
The movie is done! After months of intense research, hours upon hours of writing and brainstorming sessions, etc. it is done.
Including the title page, the final project is 147 pages and a whopping 28,037 words!
As of last night, the movie, named after it’s main character, Bradley, has been registered as my own creative property with the Writers Guild of America - West. Very fun stuff.
This has been one of the most intense, inspiring, and entertaining writing projects I have ever worked on… out of two writing projects. Pictured is the final storyboard used in the creation of this project. That’s a lot of paper.
All in all, I’d like to thank the few of you who follow this side blog that cared, my friends and confidants that have let me ramble about this twisted and complex screenplay to them, my father who worked with me in the development of the story, and my mother for having a name that inspired an alcoholic beverage and who always acted like she was keeping up with my father and I as we talked about something impossible to understand from the outside.
It’s crazy to think that at 17 years old I have now written two 126 page and 146 page coherent screenplays that are both registered as my creative property with the WGA, but it’s always a blast. I’m excited to see what the future holds.
It wasn’t easy writing and developing a screenplay about an orphaned 13 year old schizophrenic psychopath living in 1940s NYC and his ragtag crew that would follow him to the ends of the Earth and back. It all started as a thought in my head months ago when I couldn’t sleep and now it’s done.
Posting will likely become more rare as there are no journals to add for a bit until I begin school in NYC. Thanks again everyone, and I’ll be seeing you around!
