I've been Memed, oh the Irony of it All
Well okay, there is no irony, but I had to think damnit!
Ahem, ahem, cough, cough....
Is this thing on? Tap tap…
Memememememememmememmmememememe, okay I’m ready to sing this meme.
Ras at Procastinatey tagged me, she got me….(insert big fake, poorly acted dying scene)
ONE (1) earliest film-related memory:
Watching Bambi, and the scene where mummy deerest is no more. I remembered that scene while watching Narnia at the movies on holidays recently. There were plenty of kids there, and whilst the Lion is being sacrificed I am thinking…..cooool, deep psychological scars galore here!
TWO (2) favorite lines from movies:
Not very exciting or enlightening I'm afraid.
”Houston, we have a problem.”
I love the movie.
Because I love behind the scenes stuff, and getting to have even a glimpse at NASA and it's workings, like that movie gave, was fantastic. Going to get the latest DVD with extras on it very soon I think.
”Go ahead, make my day.”
You know who.
Why? Not because it is part of an action movie, but rather because I would love to write a line that is recognized internationally, and becomes part of the culture.
THREE (3) jobs you'd do if you could not work in the "biz":
Hotel General Manager
Front Office Manager
IT Salesperson / Hitman (relatively interchangeable.)
FOUR (4) jobs you actually have held outside the industry:
These last three are from a long time ago!
Kitchenhand at Big Rooster (even dressed in the Chicken suit one year, at Xmas, oh yeah, that’s nice where you might be, where there is snow, but at a beachside town hitting 38 Celsius, not so much )
Operator on old style plug and cord phone exchange, this was in 1986. Very funky and retro, and yes, you could listen in on calls!
THREE (3) book authors I like:
Bill Bryson – funny guy, if you like Ken Levine’s travelogues, read this guys book, Bill Bryson: Down Under for the funniest journey around Oz)
Pamela Anderson – I haven’t read her book, but I just thinks she brings so much to the literary world(she might get the nod for underrated screenwriter as well)
TWO (2) movies you'd like to remake or properties you'd like to adapt:
Novel: Hungry as the Sea: Wilbur Smith – could be some great scenes in this one, just a tweak to make it more modern, cut down the age difference between characters….and I think it would make a great movie.
I have never been a huge follower of fantasy type books, but I think David Eddings the Mallorean (spelling?) and Belgarion series of books, would make a great TV series, long running, long character arcs, etc. if I could not do that, then remake Omega Man….love that end of the world, only man left alive type scenario's.
ONE (1) screenwriter you think is underrated:
All the ones that get movies made (that or Pamela Anderson),, sorry, we all know they are underrated, so picking one is not fair.
Well you could pick George Lucas, I mean was I the only one that recognised that George wrote Jar Jar Binks as a self-expository character, that reflected his desire to just be a normal quirky person?????
THREE (3) people I'm tagging to answer this meme next:
Steve at do cats eat bats?
Richard at Scriptweaver cause I think he is going to want to remake Deep Throat, and call it Fun with Dick and Jane 2. Let's see!

Thanks Ras, I'll get you back! :)
Hope you enjoyed!
