Screenwriting differs from screen writing

Weird or (quizzical)
slavezombie
It’s disconcertingly bothersome when:

  • I update my blog on one device, then access my blog on a different device (and different Internet connection) to see my update but nothing appears when I refresh the screen

  • When I google ‘where’s SLAYER performing today,’ the only results I get are up and coming concert dates (for ticket sales) and today’s event, wherever it may be in the world, is totally ignored.

  • when I uncover the few websites on the subject of screenwriting which are not outdated by a few years, the feature most relevant to participating members of the site is the vast amount of users that one’s inquire/post reaches. I’m just saying. It has nothing to do with how old and dilapidated lj blogging servers have become, but how do people know it isn’t an AI that is replying to their query?


It is what it is, I guess. I am updating my blog with e-mail these days. Also, I’m turning off twitter feed; rather, I’m reversing the way lj syncs with twitter. From now on my lj updates will appear as a tweet instead of my tweets appearing as an lj update.


FWIW, please spread the word that I have a community for typewriter enthusiasts whom also lend their skill at screenwriting. It could make for the final straw that breaks the hypothetical camel’s back stacked with the declining formality of scripted TV.

Auslander (lyrics & translation)
slavezombie
Ich reise viel, ich reise gern

Fern und nah und nah und fern

Ich bin zuhause überall

Meine Sprache: International

Ich mache es gern jedem recht

Ja, mein Sprachschatz ist nicht schlecht

Ein scharfes Schwert im Wortgefecht

Mit dem anderen Geschlecht



Ich bin kein Mann für eine Nacht

Ich bleibe höchstens ein, zwei Stunden

Bevor die Sonne wieder lacht

Bin ich doch schon längst verschwunden

Und ziehe weiter meine Runden



Ich bin Ausländer (Ausländer)

Mi amore, mon chéri

Ausländer (Ausländer)

Ciao, ragazza, take a chance on me

Ich bin Ausländer (Ausländer)

Mon amour, Я люблю тебя

Ein Ausländer (Ausländer)

Come on, baby, c'est, c'est, c'est la vie



Andere Länder, andere Zungen

So hab' ich mich schon früh gezwungen

Dem Missverständnis zum Verdruss

Dass man Sprachen lernen muss

Und wenn die Sonne untergeht

Und man vor Ausländerinnen steht

Ist es von Vorteil, wenn man dann

Sich verständlich machen kann



Ich bin kein Mann für eine Nacht

Ich bleibe höchstens ein, zwei Stunden

Bevor die Sonne wieder lacht

Bin ich doch schon längst verschwunden

Und ziehe weiter meine Runden

Hahahahahaha



Ich bin Ausländer (Ausländer)

Mi amore, mon chéri

Ausländer (Ausländer)

Ciao, ragazza, take a chance on me

Ich bin Ausländer (Ausländer)

Mon amour, Я люблю тебя

Ein Ausländer (Ausländer)

Come on, baby, c'est, c'est, c'est la vie



Du kommen mit, iche machen gut

Du kommen mit, iche machen gut

Du kommen mit, iche machen gut

Lyric © Rammstein
I travel a lot, I like to traveling

Far and near and near and far

I'm everywhere at home

My Language: international

I like to please everyone

Yeah my vocabulary is not bad

A sharp sword in the battle of words

With the other gender



I'm no man for a night

I stay maximum for one, two hours

Before the sun is laughing again

Am I already gone

And continue my rounds



I'm a stranger (stranger)

Mi amore, mon chéri

Stranger (stranger)

Ciao, ragazza, take a chance on me

I'm a stranger (stranger)

Mon amour Я люблю тебя

A stranger (stranger)

Come on, baby, c'est, c'est, c'est la vie



Other Countries, other tongues

So I do forced myself in the past

In the missunderstanding of frustration

That you have to learn Languages

And when the sun sets down

And you stand in front of strangers

Is it beneficial if you then

Being able to communicate



I'm no man for a night

I stay maximum for one, two hours

Before the sun is laughing again

Am I already gone

And continue my rounds

Hahahahahaha



I'm a stranger (stranger)

Mi amore, mon chéri

Stranger (stranger)

Ciao, ragazza, take a chance on me

I'm a stranger (stranger)

Mon amour Я люблю тебя

A stranger (stranger)

Come on, baby, c'est, c'est, c'est la vie



You come with me, I make you good

You come with me, I make you good

You come with me, I make you good

Watching the new Hulu series Catch 22

Sketches doodles

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.
