Pulp -pourri

To Rock Shaink and Steve Peterson - enjoyed meeting the both of you this week. Rock, welcome to LA. Steve, be careful on the drive back to San Antonio.

The Sound - received the notes back from Velvet Steamroller and they love the direction we are going in. It's not that "I want to have your babies right now" type of love (yet), but more along the lines of "Thank god, the first date's over with. When are we going out again?"

I'm happy even though they gave me a lot of notes to incorporate into the next draft. Mostly detail work, which I was expecting, but some structural changes as well.

I wrote out all the notes and emailed them out so that we were again on the same page as to the direction of the new draft. This is basically the same procedure I use when I go into a new draft for one of my specs. New draft = new outline with changes/notes.

In other news...



So, I saw this image online at Buzzscape, and this thought kept running around in my head. So now I put it out there for the Pulperverse :

Wouldn't you rather have seen this onscreen with Jennifer Garner's voice, than that very crappy movie she was in?

Bruce Timm and the rest of those guys need funding right now, so that they can go off and do D2DVD animated features of MANY different characters...

I'm just sayin...

Great to meet you too, Bill!

But I wouldn't feel safe on the roads in Texas unless I was driving an M1 Abrams, and even then...

Where can I send my check Bill? Have you caught any of JLU this year? Fantastic!

Good meeting man. Still yet to grab my sixer and watch Scarecrow. Ended up getting nailed with a deadline. But looking forward to it!

Bruce Timm and Co. know more about how to make comic book movies that the suits at WB could ever imagine. All anyone has to do is compare Batman and Robin (excuse me while I heave for just thinking about it) to Batman: Subzero. What these guys could do with Elektra...

I went to see Batman: Mask of the Phantasm at the theater. I was totally blown away by that movie. I was equally appalled by Batman & Robin and the "live action" movies.

I am glad to see that Bruce Timm and Dwayne McDuffie and the rest of the guys and gals at WB have a regular job that they love and do so well.

I just wish they were free enough to be able to do:

CONAN
SOME ORIGINAL STUFF
SOME MARVEL STUFF
DOC SAVAGE
