Yes. Me worry.
I bet you’re all wondering why didn’t post on Wednesday. This is because Qwest is evil. And vengeful. I’ll leave it at that.
Preface: I am assuming that you all know what I am writing. I will explain the story as fully as possible for those ignorants out there in my next post.
A note from Andrew: In the meantime, I’ll just say that Parker’s script is essentially an adaptation of Dante’s Divine Comedy, and that it follows a character named Leo on his journey from Heaven down through Purgatory and Hell.
I am still working on the script (of course), but things are going as slowly as a nut that believes itself to be a hatching egg. That is very slow for those of you that do not speak poor metaphor. I have written almost all of Heaven, I just need to get some transitions between scenes written and down. Then it’s on to Purgatory! Hurrah! (P.S. Andrew, I have decided that I’m either going to do ‘your’ ending or both, depending on estimated running time at that point.) I am predicting that this will take me another two weeks or so to finish. I’ll probably work on it alot in Speech, which starts Monday. I need to organize a get together with primarily Andrew to discuss the film, but if others can contribute as well, they’d be more than welcome. Be warned though, I will claim any ideas that you offer and that I like as my own. *Insert evil laugh here*
A wonderful discussion about Jesus’s character in The Somber Tale of Leonard Noblac took place today at the Playwrighting/Fight/Screenwrighting Club. It has been determined that when Jesus was forced to take all of humanities sins upon himself and was condemned by the Father to die on the cross, it destroyed his mental state. He now has the mental age of nine or ten, and has some sort of dissociative disorder (right, Andrew?) (Andrew Sez: Close enough.) that causes him to have imaginary conversations with ‘the Father’. I hope that with both of these mental disorders, some empathy for his broken character will be created. I still need some explaination of his return from the dead though, and why he still seemed sane then. Did he seem sane then? TELL ME! His character is also split between Heaven and Hell, due to the fact that he died as both the son of God and as a mortal man with all the sins of the world on him. This provides for all sorts of fun. Heaven is infested with mental illness, steming from the creation of man by Satan. Yes, you read that right. I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to convey that on screen though. Problem.
Well, I’ve wasted enough of your life. I’ll leave you with this random quote supplied by our generous quote sponsor, Google:
