My only problem with the assignment here would be, and I hope I'm wrong, that we end up with a lot of similar stories. Other than that I agree with you James.

I think it's hideous!  The theme is so much more than a theme, as it actually sets our characters even and tells us exactly what the characters have to do even.

WEAK!!!!


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

Loads of sheep and cows round here. And shite. Oh well. There's worse things I can get on me boots. They're not kinky by the way. More kinda "feck off I'm building" type things.

Cement can do terrible things to leather. And my lovely hair. The grey powdery git. Black snot ain't pretty. Why do I lookat it? Like a car crash from the nostrils. Where is my hanky.
Ah. It's not white anymore.

Ahum. Bloody bees. And Cs. Aye.

Now dare.

I like a bet. Cos I like to win. Losing hurts. Mind you, been a while.

So den.

I was in a hotel once. Not so long ago. High class too. I wasn't paying. I'm not daft.

A card beside da bell on reception desk in front of receptionist who must work as a model as male tongues in the queue behind me lolled and dribbled said

"Our Philosophy is to treat you, our guest, with the utmost courtesy at absolutely all times."

I'm happy to report they did.

Howover, my philosophy is that extra terra aliens exist. Somewhere. If God exists he ain't too keen to intervene in the manners of man and that when we die we ain't coming back. And there ain't no clouds and long white beards in heaven. Despite what some say. If it exists.

And all that cack about hell being hot and red hot pokers up juxies is toss. Of the highest order. As for limbo and purgatory I giggle. What a load of auld wonk.

Point been that philosphies are things that deal with what this world is, what life is, if there's a god and the like.

They have bugger all to with eating.

Phil, dear boy. Please choose your words more carefully. Or maybe you did. Ahoo.

Either way. I'll be sticking to my philosophy. No matter what.

Now dat dun it's time to get the bacon and the lamb chops on. Aw, da poor pig and sheep. Nicer than some people you know. They taste better too.

Where is my fridge?

Love and hisses,

R x

Pulling a Palin? I know a lotta fellas who'd lvoe to pull a Palin. In fact they have. I'm not sure she was there though. At least, not in the flesh.

Now I'm pulling a Palin before the bacon burns. Yeah.

Where is Phil?

Might shed a bit more on this if you please.

I am all for it. Hell I already have a concept but there seems to be mixed reviews combined with some confusion here.

Phil, Any more details?

You're not supposed to tell if you're taking part or not...  

I will definitely not write anything for this one! And I never lie...unless it's something important or semi important...

If its meant to be a drama, then we should write our scripts as a drama. Ok, the theme lends itself to be comedic but if you make it too funny(unless its a deliberate pisstake...ahem) then it ain't fulfilling the requirements.

Sure, people mighn't be happy with the themem and genre but, hey, that's what makes it a challenge.
A drama to me shouldn't be horror or action(though it could have some action if necessary).

Keep it in the page guidelines, give it the "theme" required and make it a drama.   You have all the information required you just need to write the script.

There are an infinite different number of characters who may be vegan. It impacts on religion, ethics, medicine, animal rights, philosophy, human evolution, anthropology etc and as a writer you are free to create an infinite number of other reasons as well.

And a carnivore can be anything from a vampire, or a cannibal to someone who is deliberately trying to kill himself through rabbit starvation.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabbit_starvation

A simple Google or Wikipedia search will reveal all sorts of links to philosophies, historical figures, controversies, conflicts of opinion all of which could be used to create an interesting drama.

There are people like Peter Singer dubbed by some "the world's most dangerous man" who could be central to a story like this.

http://www.animalliberationfront.com/Saints/Authors/Interviews/Peter%20Singer--summary.htm

For those struggling to think of serious stories for a topic like this...it's a great opportunity to really evaluate your creative development process. Developing interesting and intense stories can just be a question of research.

I could come up with hundreds of different stories based on this theme, from intense hostage dramas featuring enviromental terrorists, to supernatural dramas featuring mythical creatures and Buddhist Monks, to low budget dramas about two people in an eating disorder clinic, to stories about Inuit Eskimoes, to intense survival stories about the Greely Arctic Expedition in 1881.

Now, funnily enough there's no way I'm going to have time to write a script this week...maybe that's even worse  ...,but come on guys, there's enough in the theme to write even Oscar quality work.

Primates? I met a primate once. He said he was the Primate of all Ireland. We had had a few drinkies tho. He talked the talk. Sadly his walk lacked some co-ordination.

I met a sock puppet once. It was rude. So I ripped it off and threw it across the room.

Then it was quiet.

The dog chewed the arse outta it.

Holiday or not. Manners maketh man. Evidently not puppets. Apologise or else I shall rip one of your numerous scripts apart.

Line by line. Puppet. Boy.

Love and pisses,

That's Phil's cue to start quoting Robert De Niro.
