someone on tripod took gothic prophet so now my site is named belledragones (still unpublished) but I managed to add a paypal tip jar and the new point of the website is to track my small business progress and get a little financial help on the way. I want to post my business plan. I value a dollar, it's 100th of a hundred dollar bill.( sorry for my sloppy writing, I feel dizzy and confused in the evenings. For the first time in my life I am keeping track of my symtoms which reminds me: bloody nose today:minimal, last tuesday: sudden, frequency is increasing. Get the blood vessels burned?) Fell like the ground is moving, similar to being on a boat.
quentin tarantino is no angel, defintely not. When I first saw him, it was in Desperado as a cameo. I really didn't like him, I found him loud and annoying and I was waiting for him to get shot. I was around 8 years old. Yes, a bigeyed girl in a poofy pink dress was waiting for blood and gore. Any way Q.T isolated himself from his earlier friends when he made it big. He refused to give co-writers credit to his "blood brother" for Pulp Fiction. He was alienated from is mom who he blames for his unstable childhood. Speaking of which he didn't finish school. somewhere around 6th grade he dropped out and just watched.
Maybe I'm a bit jealous.
Q.T wrote awesome screenplays with worse writing ability then I, he had other people make it flow smoothly. But it was his style, his mood, his dialog he just used other's talents where he was weak. He used other people's ideas but gave them his point of view. It makes me think maybe my writing will be more popular if I took a time worn story and retold it from a different point of view (not his, I don't understand his). My world is too different to be liked. Grindhouse makes me think of "Lola La Trilera" and "Juana". I love those two mexican films, "Juana" had a sexy leading lady who wore a showgirl outfit, seduced the evil corprate badguy into giving her his secrets, and blew up his empire with him in it. "Lola" was a gun toting woman who drove a trailer and was actually a mercenary for hire, she is hired to save a little girl from kidnappers. She killed them all and saved the little girl. I was 5 around the time I saw these so I don't remember the details well. I remember they had sequels and I thought they were awesome and cheesy. I digress.
He took credit for everything to make sure no one took credit for even an inch of what was his. He had a gaint ego and huge a.d.d-like energy to back it up. He wasn't afraid to drop out of school because to him film was more real then school. He studied fanaticly but it wasn't for school, it was for his success ten years later.
The question in my heade is, Do I take the classes My counselor advises me to take, or the classes I want to take? Should I apply to MCTC or just take the year off to plan my next 7 years and focus on my small kiosk until I learn how to turn everything I touch into gold. Doesn't Hollywood need a girl with a golden touch. Creativity and business? or are they stupid?
I'm beginning to like horror films again. I loved them so much as a little girl until I became scared of the dark. My first paid film was a horror flick after all (best editing in the class, 11 minutes long, cheesy as hell and I never want to see to again). I should do another one. The one about the girl with the red eye. Cast all my school peeps in the roles.
P.S: I want to see Day Watch! I just saw the trailer, vampire flick, cool.
