Their time is not worth your time

What I do when writing a letter to someone like a busy Hollywood agent is, I spend several times more writing it than usual.

So, if this agent earns 10 times what I do, and it normally takes 15 minutes to write an email, I spend 2 and a half hours on the email to this agent.

Does this sound crazy? Well, did I get results? Yes! The agent replied and asked me to send in a script.

Option me, option me!

I've published a compilation of short stories, with 50 stories to option. This is the second coming of Philip K.Dick, so don't delay, buy or option today!

I'm trying to get them to reduce the shipping cost.

Geffen = spaceballs?

The animated Geffen Pictures logo (seen on Last Boy Scout, Interview with the Vampire, etc) looks just like the ship in Mel Brooks' film Spaceballs.

That is all.

CIA Glasses

In the film Spy Game, everyone has these little 1991 mini-spectacles that are oval.

Then in walks the Head of the CIA, an authority figure, and he has HUGE glasses.

The moral of this story? Try and wear big glasses for management jobs. And, Hollywood, get your chronology right.
