Tales of a Post-Grad Nothing

Thursday, September 14, 2006

A few weeks ago, the oh-so-appropriately-named Battery Park had some flooding due to Hurricane/Tropical Storm/Tropical Depression/General Bitch Ernesto. As a result, people lost their homes, property was severely damaged, and animals that typically don't show themselves became displaced and, you know, showed themselves. Today I saw a news report about a woman who had both snakes and rats trapped in the walls of her house and that at night she would lay awake listening to the sounds of the snakes hunting the rats. Add in a big-chested actress, a deadly virus of some sort, and at least one scene involving an unlikely weapon (like a blowtorch or tricked out paper shredder) and you've got a summer blockbuster.

if the house suddenly became mobile, it could easily inspire a 'snakes on an rv' movie. good thing hollywood isn't so derivative.

actually i read an article that says hollywood types who are too busy to write scripts just watch foreign films with the aim of adapting them for american audiences, exploiting the idea that americans don't watch them. script writer too busy to write script? eh, watch a movie and call it a day... telecommuting is alive and kicking.

have you seen Crank yet? yes, i said "yet". i like the actors, but have already seen speed. albeit, speed involved a bus/boat not a motorcycle/blonde....
