MONDAY MONDAY, BEAUTIFUL DAY...

I have added quite a few of you finally to my links! So if you're on there, on the left side as you scroll down my blogroll, and you see your blog on there, it means you are special! If for any reason I missed ya and feel you should be on there, please do let me know and I will be more than happy to add you! I tried adding those people who regularly come here to visit and comment; my most loyal fans/fellow bloggers. It's hard to keep this thing going, with the time constraints we all face, but you must keep on blogging!

Lord knows my life is never DULL and I always have something interesting/scintillating to discuss! Right? Uh huh. You know what? I am seriously considering writing a screenplay/script! I mean, Juno was a cute movie and all, but I didn't think it was that extraordinary you know? And yet, Diablo Cody got an Oscar for it, and she's not even in the business! It was her first attempt, and she had a major hit! I mean, I have enough interesting things going on in my life, that I think I could actually write an interesting screenplay out of it! My hilariously dysfunctional Hispanic background, my eternal gay angst, the "love" of my job, my dealings with the weirdos at the bar, and my hedonistic sex life would make for one really fascinating movie damnit! Who's gonna play me though? Wes Bentley? Tobey Maguire? Jim Sturgess? Steve Buscemi? Oh God. Buscemi is a great actor, but he's so butt ugly and too old to play me. And I just don't think I'm that hideous. I'll stick with Bentley or Maguire I suppose, but I'm not a casting director so what do I know? I just gotta get this thing written first and foremost; insert witty dialogue and dramatic scenes here and there.

I watched my first ever Judy Garland/Mickey Rooney movie called Babes in Arms. It was entertaining, and I could not believe the high energy Rooney had back in his youth. There was a bit of a racist blackface minstrel show they put on, but those were the times back in 1939 right? Ironically, the British film Beautiful Thing has an English black girl in whiteface singing along to her musical idol Mama Cass! LOLOL! Yeah, this movie about working class Brits and two young men who discover their sexuality, was quite insightful into the daily life of regular people in England. I had a hard time understanding their heavy accents, but enjoyed the movie overall. Funny how one thinks that living somewhere like England will be glamorous, and yet normal people face the same daily struggles that we can all universally identify with.

I've watched/studied enough movies thanks to Netflix, that I honestly think I oughtta give writing my own screenplay a shot.

I'd say you could write a screen play. You always have interesting things to say.

You sure you don't want Jesse Metcalfe to play you?

Steve Buscemi is old enough to play me but, oh please, I'm not nearly that ugly. Good luck with your screenplay. And thanks for the link. We seem to share some fans.

Holy cow Wes Bentley! I would pay 11.50 to see him act out your life!

You definitely have some screenplays in you--best get started!

Todd said...

Good luck on the writing. It's a bit of a challenge, but you shouldn't have too much trouble. I wouldn't look at American actors to play you. Try looking into Spanish ones.

Speaking of Judy Garland, this week over at The Judy Garland Experience on Yahoo, they are featuring a recording of the 1998 Carnegie Hall salute to Judy. Lorna Luft sings and co-hosts the event with Robert Stack. other performers include Gogi Grant, Jerry Herman, Vicki Carr, Wesla Whitfield, Nancy Dussault, Jerry Maren, Bebe Neuwirth, Robert Morse, and others.
Everyone performs and offers up their memories or feelings about Judy.
Next week the second night of the concert will be posted (with a whole new all star line up).
And of course, the experience features all sorts of other aural rarities and treats.
The Judy Garland Experience is one of the largest and most exciting Judy Garland groups on the web. There is always an interesting discussion and game going on (some of the games even have good prizes). Our photo section features some of the rarest and most candid pictures of Judy anywhere, many of the taken by group members.
Please stop by and check out The Judy Garland Experience.
