Wes,

Good job and a really fast 40 pages.  I think you were able to go a little more in-depth with the limited number of characters, and the laughs were there throughout.

Casey is a genius.

That was fun. Had some good laughs, a decent story, and some really clever stuff as well as some amazing insight into a lot of the people around here. Took quite a few liberties as we all did, but it worked really well. I figured if anyone would be able to do a site parody script, it would be you.

Good job.

I wouldn't try to find every reference in here because it would take awhile, some are hidden, some only me and that person would ever know and others are obvious like Don watching Starbuck Starr.

You wouldn't believe how tame that piece was compared to the character in the series, also writing that scene gave me the idea to make it In Don We Trust instead of Heretic The Avenger.

Maybe I shot myself in the foot by changing the title so late in the game.

Quoted from Old Time Wesley


NiXon - Dj Fresh Boots is going to have his own series, in fact I came up with a great premise and all I need is for someone with experience in the radio business to give me a few pointers on the ins and outs of what it's like. (I could do research but a living breathing person is much better for specific questions)


Let me know when you start this, I would like to help out. Maybe write a episode.

The series would be easy and original but would almost be a spin-off of my better known series.

I guess you could call it Fraiser - The Derty Version, anyone know if Fraiser is at all accurate of how a radio personality would be shown? Him sitting in a chair talking endlessly and a producer behind a glass booth watching on.

If so I've watched Fraiser forever (Not that I like him, he's kind of like chalk.)

Hey Steven,

Just wanted to say well done for a very fun script!! I have to say, I rather enjoyed my one liners in this too, lol! Really well written and I enjoyed getting to know some of the characters a bit more and in different ways than had already been done before. Loved Don and Heretic in particular. Good stuff!

Also enjoyed the new bits that I hadn't read yet too. Funny, quick and easy to read, good length too. Loved the twist btw!!!!

Well done and it was so nice to read something else by you!!!! I wouldn't mind re-reading this again at another time, cos I enjoyed it that much  

Andy xxx


PS - Andrew and Higgs, I will be reading both your scripts next and will review as soon as I can.

I just wish I knew Impulse was in fact a woman at the time because Heretic's character needed a love interest. I also hinted towards a love interest between you and Don but it may make you seem... easy for lack of a better term with Corey Feldman earlier in the script.

Did it come across that I wasn't a big fan of Corey Feldman? After the Surreal Life I lost a lot of respect for the guy.

I hinted towards a sequel or continuation with Balt, Breanne and myself wearing a bathrobe robbing a bank to get Balt back into SimplyScripts Mental Institution but I'm not actually going to write that.

I'll let someone else write that, if you want to write it please feel free to do it.

Yeah, the surreal life wasn't his greatest move.... I'll give you that, lol!! Still, I LOVED my fictional relationship with him ... good stuff!!! LOL!!! Actually, I was surprised you chose him and though you did pick on him a bit, it didn't strike me as hatred for him or anything... just think back to Lost Boys to help you forget about SL.

I think it's fine as it is personally.

I remember you getting defensive in a past post of mine where I bashed Corey, you don't remember that? That was probably way back when I thought you were a guy as well ha-ha.

The Surreal Life has done about as much for the people on it as it did for the viewers... Especially Bronson Pinchot and Mini Me. That show shows the ugly side of being famous and it's not pretty.

The one Corey Feldman film I'll always remember is "Stand By Me" because it was such a good movie for the time it was made (Now that I bring it up somebody will remake it... Do you hear that? Uwe Boll is coming.)

Impulse... Wow, I'm shocked I honestly have thought you as being a male. I have that problem with people; if they don't say it I will never know (Magic of the internet) I thought Andy was a guy until she said something.

Seriously though that was a character judgment on my behalf (I feel a bit stupid) Thinking of it maybe I did know that but forgot along the way and somehow you became a guy.


That's the internet for you. No problem.

No kidding!  I thought I might get Andy off the start but then I lost to Corey "Sarah's Gynecologist" Feldman...sheesh.  

I'm glad you wrote this, Wes, although you really threw me for a loop with that name change.  Anyway, I thought this was really enjoyable, with that particular odd style of yours.  Great idea throwing celebrities in there...surprised no-one else thought of that.

I don't know if I missed in-jokes because I haven't been around lately but ah well that's how things go.

I hope I don't catch crap for this... But during this script, for some reason the song "Let's Talk About Sex" was playing over and over again in my mind as I read.


No longer around.

The song "I Like Big Butts" by Right Said Fred is always playing in my head so... the fact that I know the artist is sad and proves I am a product child of the 90's.

Heretic the opening shot with the cigarette was actually a nod to your avatar but I am not sure how to do an over the shoulder shot without using the WE crap that everybody hates.

I took that profile you wrote and used a lot of the things you liked and didn't in here, yes a lot of my references to people are somewhat obscure, maybe cloaked in darkness.

You actually would have if not for the Corey angle, I was talking to Andy leading up to this and I was telling her it was going to be the two of you locked in the forbidden tango but ultimately I felt compelled to add The Feld.

Frankly my favorite scene was Shaman, I even told him about it before I sent it in. More people need to read In Purgatory, film noir will never be the same.

......Wasn't "I like big butts" by Sir Mixalot??????? I thought Right Said Fred did - I'm too sexy! I have both those tunes and they ROCK!!!!!!!!

Anyhow, sorry, noticed that and had to query it....

I know Chris, I thought we were 'hooking up' in this script too, lol!!!

You see all the music is blending together and I forget things but I meant I'm Too Sexy. Both of those guys are dead (To the public) so I don't think they'll mind if I screw up their names collectively.

But thanks for that.

You've always got the sequel Andy.
