Please Allow Me To Introduce Myself...

Greetings and welcome to DISContent - my corner of the mediamaking universe dedicated to movies that premiere on DVD, pulp magazines, comics, television and any other thing I think is cool and would be useful for a beginning screenwriter to know and utilize.

Many of you have come from a referral from Complications Ensue. Alex - the check is in the mail. Some of you have joined us from here. Craig - you don't need the money.

I hope you decide to stick around, and join me in this business we call show. We live in exciting times when the rules are being rewritten right in front of us. Before you can break the rules you have to learn them. It's my hope that you read, question and apply all the little tricks of the trade I've learned in my years in the business. Then come up with your own tricks and shae them. I've worked my way up from the very bottom to this point in my career which is...er, not the bottom.

The point of this blog is to pass along my kidney stones of wisdom allowing you to create your own cool stuff and break into the business. We all know a lot of screenwriters who have never had anything produced. I am here to help you overcome that hurdle. I want to be able to go to the video store or download a movie and say, "Wow, I know that guy/gal. They made a cool little movie." Trust me when I say "This business is all about cool movies." (or comics, tv, novels, etc...):

Because Cool doesn’t have a budget…
Because Cool sells (a lot)…
Because Cool sells itself, and you can’t stop Cool because, well it’s cool…
Because when you see or hear Cool, you know it right away…
Because Cool, when it’s done right, is cool…
Be cool..

--- Your Mad Pulp Bastard
