Lancelot Link Thursday

Lancelot Link Thursday! For those of you who wonder if in the future, monkeys will be running all of the major studios... and doing a better job... here are some articles about screenwriting and the biz that may be of interest to you. Brought to you by that suave and sophisticated secret agent...

Here are four cool links plus this week's car chase...

1) Thursday is tweet "Harry Connolly GAME OF CAGES" day - if we all tweet it, maybe it will trend? That would be cool. It's an exciting book, let's see if *we* can add something to that twitter trending list!

"Harry Connolly GAME OF CAGES"

2) Your Spy Dictionary Has Arrived! - thanks to Jeff!

3) Offended By The Rank Objectification Of Writers - we are not sex objects! - um, you may not want to let any attractive members of the opposite sex read this.

4) Chuck Lorre Vanity Cards! - when you are creator/producer of a TV show, they give you a place at the end of the show for your company logo. Chuck Lorre (DHARMA & GREG, TWO AND A HALF MEN, BIG BANG THEORY) uses that space for rants... that you can not read because they're only up for a few seconds. But if you Tivo his shows, you can pause and read them... and they are funny! That link takes you to all of them, pre-paused for your reading pleasure!

5) And today's car chase...

Burt Reynolds in WHITE LIGHTNING! One of those moonshine movies... and Reynolds made 2 playing the same character (the other one, GATOR, features boat chases and ultra hot Lauren Hutton). Since most of the car chases have been urban, here's one in the country...

Corn fields and quarries and lots of dust.

TODAY'S SCRIPT TIP: Thick, Juicy Scenes - and Jack Black.
Dinner: Tortas burrito.
Pages: Awful writing day.
Bicycle: Yes, rode west for a medium ride.

So, did Burt and Ned Beatty make WHITE LIGHTNING as a comedic relief after DELIVERANCE?
Well, at least Ned's end wasn't as painful.

In the category of 'reversals', MY NEW PARTNER (1984, French) has an unusual chase (trailer has a few seconds of it).

While I was searching for that, I found this - some dangerous-looking stunts and bad dialogue.
