Tidings of Comfort (Part 2)

We are continuing our storyline that began this week with The Pillow meeting some new friends. As far as I know we might be doing mostly storylines from now on seeing as they are ten times easier to write than individual ones. Anyway I hope you guys like it, because Nathan worked very hard on this one seeing as he did almost all of the writing as well, so don’t make him angry. I don’t like him when he’s angry, he yells at me a lot to begin with and I don’t want any more incentive.

All that aside, Guy Ritchie, only my favorite director of all time is coming out with a new movie soon. If you don’t know, it’s the new Sherlock Holmes movie. The one thing unusual about this movie compared to his other works is that he didn’t write the script. The movies he is most famous for Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Revolver and RocknRolla were all written by him. Sherlock Homes is one of the few exceptions. The thing is I admire him just as much as a writer as a director so this movie should be interesting. I’m sure he can do a fine job directing a movie without being involved in the writing but it’s just such a different strategy then he used in his past movies.

Speaking of movies I’m trying to write one at the moment and I think the base is coming along nicely. However, I have a feeling that it may be too ambitious. It is a no budget film with amateur actors that have little to no experience and probably won’t take the movie seriously. Not that it’s a totally serious movie mind you, but its not a total joke either. I’m happy with some of the dialogue and think that it will be entertaining to watch if I can pull the filming off properly. It’s only a 10-15 min film so I don’t have much to work with but hopefully when it gets further along the line I hope it will turn out ok.

Even though I have some parts that I’m happy with, I have this constant feeling they could be better or that I can add in a better scene. It’s this weird feeling of accomplishment and incompletion at the same time. I’m sure that’s all just part of the process.

On the subject of the comic, yes The Pillow is being abused by three hobos and it’s not pretty. I just hope none of you have experienced the same fate as our poor friend. Its just  one of the many dangers of traveling along the railroad tracks, I mean that’s where the first hobos came from. You’ve got to watch yourself out there it’s a dangerous place. I hope everyone enjoyed the comic and has had a good week so far. I’m done with this for now, try not to become a “peein’ cushion.” Good day.
