Shaken, Stirred and Whining


Daniel Craig should not read this blog. In fact, he shouldn't go online at all. He's too sensitive.

Craig was named the new James Bond when talks with Pierce Brosnan fell through. Shooting is complete on "Casino Royale" which up to now, was the only of Ian Fleming's novels never officially filmed (not counting the 50's television version and that weird parody with Peter Sellers and Woody Allen). Sounds like it should go back to basics and showcase a leaner, tougher Bond.

But the actor playing Bond is complaining. He's hurt by the fan response. He thinks people won't accept a new Bond. Dude, it's been 40 years. We've accepted FIVE new Bonds. And one of them was George Lazenby. What we won't accept is a crybaby in the role. Shut up and shoot people.

Speaking of movies, I see they've stolen our idea about women hikers who are stalked by monsters (the one we came up with in San Fran). They named it descent and put it in a cave, but there's no doubt our idea was overheard at one of the Haight Street bars by a visiting Englishman.

Damn that sucks! That was such an original idea to!!! I mean, hikers that get lost and attacked by monsters. Thats going to change the face of film.

There was also a subplot about how the monsters run to Maine and eat an overly sarcastic Interactive art director, so watch your ass, W!

i wrote a script that mysteriously found it's way to hollywood as well guys.

it was this really unique action/drama about a terrifying event featuring a plot never heard of before in the history of modern film.

the working title of my script was called "a commercial airplane in flight, and some snakes get loose on it and go crazy".

hi brian kunath

Maybe all of hollywood is reading your blogs! Maybe that is where they are getting the next Oscar-worthy films from....maybe you should all get Oscars for the "Sorry Suckers, you just did not have the contract, but we stole your idea" category....

We should!

I could recount the theft of my screenplay, the one about a red-headed dwarf who uses his powers of mental telepathy to channel the dead Gabor sisters everytime an IRS agent shows up at this underwater treehouse to audit him for claiming Mount Rushmore as four dependents on his tax return. The Gabor sisters slap the auditor until he turns into a giant block of cheddar cheese, which is then eaten by the ghost of Fatty Arbuckle.

Of course, you probably know the movie by its new title: The Godfather.
