Yesterday I sat down to watch this speech/lecture/talk by Charlie Kaufman. I was hoping to pick up some tips on screenwriting. I should actually explain who this guy is. Charlie Kaufman is a writer/screenwriter in Hollywood. Sidenote, something about the word Hollywood just makes me shudder in a bad way.
Anyway, unfortunately I did not pick up any decent tips. Instead, I ended up watching one of the most inspirational speeches/lectures/talks or whatever you want to call it. There was just so much crammed into that short slot on the arts channel that I didn’t have time to process it all. I plan to sit down tomorrow with a pen & paper to re-watch it, perhaps take some notes.
I can tell you this one thing I’ve taken away from listening to that man. Never again will I wish to be anyone but myself. Even though I may be weird, different, & crammed full of idiosyncrasies someone else who happens to be feeling pretty miserable about their lot may stumble across me & realize that I’m just as crazy, weird, & messed up as them but I learned to embrace these oddities & love myself (ok, maybe love is too strong a word but just go with it for now). That person will hopefully learn to love themselves & their quirks just as much as I’m learning to embrace my own.
Anyway, notes will be taken & a proper post with what I consider to be the most inspiring ideas. Also, I hope this post made sense. It’s 2:30am & I’m just home from work.
I can see Moon Boy becoming one of my favorite shows for numerous reasons. Firstly, it brings back lots of childhood memories. Secondly, it’s just hilarious, & thirdly, Chris O’Dowd. It’s just brilliantly hilarious!
Officially registered for college & reason number one as to why I am perpetually broke but college yay!
And remember, nobody brings the party like the what? Ly-di-a
