A little entertainment to inspire us along on our way, I give you:

THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE!

Well, okay with the "Brain that Wouldn't Die" thing. I'm more irritated by the relative who will not leave. I mean, how long can he keep flipping channels? And if he buys the beer it's that light stuff with lime in it. And come on, guy, nobody wears shoes with tassels anymore.
I've been trying to work on an idea for the story. I was talking to my wife about it, you know, have an intelligent conversation, and I said I had a question about structure. She said, "Well, my question is when you're going to take out the garbage." That sure helped.

"TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE"

Light Beer Lime Productions presents...


a new thriller, an honest film about expectations, will it or won't it happen, and an exciting action scene where the trash bin is raided by animals, and will we be concerned if the Xmas turkey remains are not doubled bagged or at the bottom of the bin, attracting fearsome predators: cats, mice, a bear!

Christmas guests who overstay their welcome, a foot sticking out of the garbage, a foot with tassels on the shoe!

If everyone put the same energy into writing scripts, I'd have several in my inbox right now!

I have two ideas down, just thinking them over, going for two this time out.

Au contraire, it is positively encouraged. All masterpieces welcome.

Here is last year's Valentine's Day discussion thread, with links to previous V.D. contests. Alas the contest failed, not enough entries. Hopefully we shall attract more players this year.

How are we doing? I've finished a draft, and I also received an entry in my inbox, woot.

I wrote one about three weeks ago, but I haven't taken a look at it since I finished it -- so I don't know how totally crappy it is and whether I want to embarrass myself with it or not. I've been mulling one idea in my head for about two weeks, but it's a little tricky and I don't know if I can make it work. And I just came up with another idea this morning while in the shower, but it's too early to see if there's anything there yet. So ... maybe (probably?) one, maybe (probably not?) two and a very outside chance of (could be?) three. Or maybe none at all.

Don't you like it when we're so precise?
