Watching the new Hulu series Catch 22

Notability collab

I like the simplicity of using Sketches app on my iphone. I still need to grasp the concept of transparencies. I never understood it in PhotoShop, so even though the concept seems the same, I'm in the dark about it.

Then there's the issue of exporting. I wasn't able to export my image from Sketches and into a workable format for blogging. I had to copy my image and paste it into Notability. I don't usually pay the $3.00-9.00 for apps.‡ So… I guess you can say I'm taking a break from trying to figure out the two space rule after a period when using fixed width fonts like Courier. Monaco, Andale Mono. From Notability, the only way to export is thru .pdf (see sample). The problem with this is the gaps of blank space which frames the original Sketches composition.
Things to think about:
  • Familiarize yourself with transparencies within the #Sketches app

  • Get used to exporting pdf files from #Notability
and once the pdf is exported to the cloud, it's easy to open it in Preview on my MacBook. Preview allows exporting to .png and so far the .png format is working for me. #pilcrow_news has me doing updates to the #Sandbox I've created for screenwriters to explore their desire to learn how to code. It's simple really, so head on down there and don't be shy. Why, in my day #Sandbox wikis were the classroom for computer science hobbyists. And look at me now! Anonymously posting trash about public figures I don't like and hiding in my mama's garage.

One of these days I'll fund the means to make the movie that will never be made ( #tmtwngm ) and it won't be one of those boring American Greetings productions. It will be so BIG, that it will take all the major studios, with the expection of Dreamworks and it's affiliated members, namely: Steven Spielberg. Paramount, Columbia, Sony, etc.

‡The reason I try to delay upgrading as much as possible.

Running a livejournal community
slavezombie

The thing about maintaining a community of writers is — I don't know what I'm doing.  I keep telling myself it'll run itself.  The asymmetrical structure of blogging (writing stuff onto a computer display screen) and screenwriting seemingly outweighs the similarities of both forms using QWERTY keyboards.  The more I think about it, the more I want to grab somebody from the lapels and shake them silly until they register the words 'screenwriting' and 'blogging' as synonymous.

So why does the worldwide web consortium (w3c) make it so difficult to format a page with screenplay tablatures?  QWERTY isn't a keyboard when keystrokes in combination with the COMMAND key, or the ALT/Option key, produce characters that are impossible to duplicate on a manual typewriter.  It must undoubtedly be a conspiracy of movie critics.  Gone are the days when fascination of pressing the shift key first, and holding it down while another letter key is pressed, magically produces the letter in majuscule.

Are you a real blogger writer?
slavezombie

I guess I could come out with a better name for the screenwriters' community.  The stylesheet could also be replaced to convey a writer's thought process.  When I was browsing thru the collection of lj stylesheets, I found a few good ones with typewriter graphic images, fountain pens, dip pens & ink wells.  All of these are great, but frustrated at the way html limits 

They're all great stylesheets, but they leave me in the dark about tweaking css/html to cater to my formatting requirements.  I'm not making excuses for the current stylesheet.  I like it too because screenwriting is kinda similar to cartooning in that storyboarding is still utilized in the film making process.  And storyboards are a crude form of cartooning; not that they have to be as I'm sure a comic strip panel in the style of the Blondie comic strip, or Hagar the Horrible, can function as storyboards just as the formal style of storyboarding.

unboxing/breaking-in the Zebra fountain pen

The Zebra V-301 fountain pen

Zebra V301

Maybe I should say ‘I’m breaking in a Zebra fountain pen.’ Ink is not flowing and it’s difficult to get the ink flowing because tapping the bib onto the paper is going to destroy the tip. So I’ve been capping the pen when it dries out and shaking it vigorously. Sometimes I shake it as though I’m packing down the tobacco from a pack of cigarettes. That seems to be the safest method without causing damage, but it’s more time consuming. My theory is to just expend the entire cartridge of ink, but if that doesn’t get the ink to flow smoothly (by the time I waste all the ink), then I’m going to refill the cartridge with some Parker ink. I heard the ink cartridge for these Zebras are unique and the fountain pen won’t take the universal converter most pens work with, so I’ll be using a syringe to refill the despicable cartridge.

1 year ago, give or take a week
slavezombie
It was one year ago approximately when a crooked cop thought he could pull a fast one by writing out a traffic citation in his chicken scratch penmanship. Below is a picture commemorating the rip in my pants after he tried to get at my penis with his mouth. I was not resisting being detained until he dropped on his knees to try an rip a hole in my pants using his teeth. When that didn’t work, he pulled out his service gun a let out a round which grazed my jeans causing the denim to rip.

These jeans were in pristine condition, and they are not your mainstream brand of Levi’s or equivalent brand which has begun the practice of combining spandex with denim to reduce productivity costs.

One would think it horrible that a crooked cop took liberty to rip my clothes only to look at my dick, but the bullet I took seems to have affected coordination of my right leg, which I now have to numb the pain in with drugs. I’m not surprised that law enforcement has become so hard up as to attempt to sexually harass law abiding citizens.

If you think that wasn’t stressful enough, when I filed my intent to fight the ticket, I was told to submit payment of bail in the amount of $300sum. Note, this all happened in April 2018, and I’m just now receiving the refund for the snafu which this corrupt officer started. On my court date, Officer Gonzales was a no-show — an obvious admission of guilt and avoidance of the ridicule he undoubtedly would’ve received of his fetish to need to suck cock.

Tonight’s the nite
slavezombie

I requested a day off. Sometimes working 5 days a week is too much and a break somewhere in the middle, like hump day, goes a long way for catching up on chores and cleaning. I’ve been living off homemade hamburgers lately, and prep time still seems to wedge into the free time I need to brainstorm dumb ideas for composing typewritten pages on my typewriter.

Tomorrow’s day off comes to you by the kind folks of SLAYER! whom touring dates revealed a show in Arizona. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like I’ll be attending this performance in their farewell tour. Because I saw their concert at the forum in L.A. a couple years back when Hanneman’s replacement was already touring with the ban, I figure I won’t be missing anything I haven’t already seen. (Without Hanneman, there isn’t going to be much in the area of new material.)

Although I miss hanging out with friends at bars, as soon as I complete at least 3 tasks tomorrow, I’m calling for a free day to explore new watering holes in the vicinity. I have errands to run around town anyway.

subplot

Law-enforcement, subject to rumor, innuendo, etc.
have a slight advantage when they're native to the city where they work. In other words, a crime of passion for two young lovers who've moved on with their lives may be involved in a homicide against each other (and a detective who grew up with them might have some insight.)



The teenage lovers go their separate ways but they're still in love with each other; and while there might be a mutual agreement between them if they're both involved in their own relationship, how might the death of one of them bring the two together again?



When the detective on the case realizes the victim was somebody he/she knew in high school.



What easier way to gain insight into a person's state of mind than by using the modus operandi made available from work, and for a detective it might seem appealing to follow a suspect until a traffic violation allows him to pull the him over for a quick character evaluation.



What all is entailed in being a detective is a mystery to me, but one thing is certain, their social skills would definitely suck if he had to lower his rank and status just to impersonate a regular law enforcement officer. Courtesy has gone out the door. What ever happened to the old west code of honor, wherein, if a cop is proven incorrect at doing his job stopping somebody and instilling fear into them, that that cop should be obligated to forfeit his firearm as a peace offering.
