Okay; finally sat down and started writing out the ideas I have for one of the movies I want to make. Not a script, just the general points that I want to come through, and the characters and plots and twists. What I wrote is an extended version of what you would read on the book cover if you were reading a novel. A few things I had to write in detail, the clues to the twists and turns that would take place. I don't want to make a movie and all of a sudden put in a twist that doesn't really make sense. I want the person to see the clues on a second or third viewing and realizing they were being told the entire time. Kind of like Sixth Sense or The Others. There were all those clues, but when you watched it the first time, you probably didn't pay attention. But when you saw it again, you could see that you were told the entire time what had happened. But, this isn't a ghost movie.

When I opened up my book to start writing, I came across another story idea that I had had during Burning Man last year. It would be cool as a movie, too... but I should wait until I know what the hell I'm doing before I attempt that one... too many special effects would be needed. Well, too many for me to do on my own with just this one computer. I'd need a real staff. But, I could write the idea out in novel form. Maybe a movie company would pick it up. You never know... it could happen. *smirk*

See that?

That's the time.
I would like to go to bed. But I'm not sleepy.
I'm awake, but not to the point where I'd sit to watch a movie... I don't want to have to pay attention to something for two hours.
I'm trying to go to bed.
Well, actually, I'm sitting here reading everyone else's LJ. But, you know what I mean.

Did you ever wake up in a strange place, a place that looks like the living-room, dining-room, bed-room, and bath-room were all combined into a space of about 10 feet by 10 feet with bars on the windows and for doors? When you woke up like that, did you also have one screaming headache and couldn't remember the events of the night before, and that you also smell like you puked on yourself, if not something else? And when this happened, you are told by some funny looking guy in a blue and grey uniform that your best friend is dead, your car is smashed up, and you have cuts all over your fingers, and bruises around your wrists that resemble matching bracelets.
Has this ever happened to you?
Me neither.

The first thing I don't understand is how come there aren't more car accidents during the day time than there are at night. Especially because there are so many more people driving around during the day than at night. And especially because a lot of those people who drive during the day time are complete idiots and drive like crazy motherfuckers. In a 35 mph lane, I'll get at least one driving 50 or more every mile. In a 50 zone, I'll have more than two scrambling around me like I'm a snail, and everyone who knows me knows that I also tend to be a speed demon. So what are these people doing? If I go out during the day, I can be sure to have several people run stop signs right in front or just behind me. I had one lady, talking on her cell phone, turn a corner from a non-turn lane right in my path. And she flipped me off for honking at her.
But now, the situation is beginning to get worse. With stores open 24 hours, fastfood restaurants open until midnight or 1AM, Tower open until midnight, etc., more and more day people are starting to drive at night. This is not good. They're taking their bad habits on the road with them during a time which they would normally be asleep. So, 1) they are not used to driving in the dark, 2) they're probably tired and should be in bed, and 3) they think that those of us who are nighthawks should make way for them.
Fucking idiots. Don't they understand there's a reason why there's just a few of us who are night people? We don't want to be around them, and we don't want them around us. At least, not driving on the roads.
Okay, most of you can actually ignore this. I just don't like the way most people drive, pulling in front of you at the last possible moment to make the turn, not even attempting to slow down at stop signs, or passing me up when I'm already doing speeds that should get me pulled over. Damnit!
Okay, you can return to your regularly scheduled LJ.
