and while you’re at it, get me Michael Lewis’ phone number

No, I’m serious: Get me Michael Lewis‘ phone number!

If you ask me (and I don’t believe you did, but you might and I’m servicey like that, so here’s your answer in advance) not enough writers are the object of gratuitous sexual objectification, and here I speak, of course, not only of myself but of others as well.

Harold Bloom, for instance.

But one man, it seems, has achieved this dream, and it couldn’t have happened to a nicer sci-fi-er: Ray Bradbury is the subject of this lusty, Silvermanesque ditty, unambiguously entitled “Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury.”

And the lyrics of the tune every high school book club is going to want to perform at the Assembly:

Steve called me up and said: “Wanna hang out tonight?”

We could see an indie film or just grab a bite

I said: “Oh, Steve, YOU’RE cute, but a MOVIE’S not what I need. No offense, BUT I’d rather stay home and read.”

F-ck Me, Ray Bradbury

The greatest Sci-Fi writer in history

Oh F-ck Me, Ray Bradbury

Since I was twelve I’ve been your number one fan

“Kiss me, you ILLUSTRATED MAN.”

I’ll feed you grapes and Dandelion Wine

And we’ll read a little Fahrenheit 69

You’re a Prolific Author, Ray Bradbury

Come on baby, I’m down on one knee

I carved our names on a Halloween tree

You write about earthlings going to Mars

And I write about blowin you in my car

You won an Emmy AWARD for the screen play adaptation of Halloween Tree

F-ck Me, Ray Bradbury

The Screenwriter’s Challenge 2010

Screenwriter, action hero

Screenwriter, hero of action

This one came from the handy Mandy mailing list, a very useful little list for anyone in the film industry who may be looking for work, which is a set which generally includes everyone in the film industry. Here are the deets:

How it Works

● Anyone may compete from anywhere in the world.

● There are 2 rounds.

● 1st Round (April 16 – 24, 2010) : Writers are placed randomly in heats. Each heat is assigned a genre and a subject (ex. comedy : competing lemonade stands or horror : a family reunion).

● Writers have 8 days to write an original short screenplay (15 pages max) based on their genre and subject assignment.

● Winners are chosen from the 1st Round to advance to the 2nd round and compete for over $20,000 in cash and prizes.

● 2nd Round (June 4 – 5, 2010) : All of the writers receive the same genre and subject at midnight (EST time) and have just 24 hours to write an original short screenplay (15 pages max.).

● A panel of judges review the final round screenplays and winners are chosen!

To enter, first check out the Fine Print and then register via this link and pay your $49 (no, not cheap, but quite a BIT cheaper than a professional critique, which you’re getting with the entry anyway).
