awesome Yuba city Pool Party.
That was fun. I need to write more about my trip to chico.
I think it was good. It was good for me to get out of the house and
go somewhere else and realize that just changing my location wasn't
going to make my life feel more fulfilled. but yeah. (oh, I just
remembered I need to make the new diskwarrior CD...) so... um...
yeah, the chico experience was nice. it gave me a little more to play
So, I've talked a little bit about the idea for the play/movie/story
that I'm concocting. Basically, It's about three people who don't
have any challenge in their lifes, and then get really bored, and
yearn for some sort of external factors to come and make their lives
more interesting. but thoes external factors never come, but as they
flail about in frustration and bordem they accidentaly create events
that rock them out of their bordem. The themes are self-reliance,
existential questions, and the validity and worth of living through
other people's lives.
I think it will be interesting when I actually write it.
the problem is that since it's largely based on emo whineing I don't
know how to make it interesting. I think if I started writting now,
it would sound like a college student's live journal.
(ok, I would like to say that the new rocket summer CD has finally
grown on me, and I just can't stop listening to it. I would like to
say that it is at least as good as the first one.)
So I need a hook. My first inclanation was to have it be a musical.
where one of the characters dosen't actually have any lines, but she
is very expressive and almost comically devoted to spying on the two
boy chacters, and that is her means of expression. except she sings
Rilo Kiley songs as her only verbal communication to the audience. so
she is the main character, but the action and interest is on the two
boys - but the audience sees them through the distorted lense of the
female character's observation of them. yeah... So I need to figure
out things for the male characters to do, like venues for them to go
to where they can do intersting things, but still have a lot of
whiney diolouge. I think in my head there is too much emphasis on the
dialouge, and when I write it, I should really cut a lot of the
dialouge. Of course, the medium that I utilize impacts how much
talking and how the script is written. obviously..
I just went and rode the motorcycle. it is hard. and scarry.
Especially since I just got into an accident, and have little
confidence in my driving.
more updates to come later!
