Quoted from Dreamscale
There could be a number of surprise mystery entries...  


Kinda takes the fun out of it, though  I'm a UFC fan.   Two fighters in one cage.  Throw a bunch of other peeps in, next thing you know it's a fake-ass WWF thing.

Should keep this one simple, IMO.  Just me and the pirate.

Well, bro...you can't be all bad then.  MMA rocks.  That we both agree on.

Hey, I think this is a great idea and I'm sorry I didn't jump in.

Maybe anyone who wants can enter a script and have it "held" to face the winner.  I don't know...I know it sucks when these mystery entries surface that you weren't counting on, but I think I'm definitely writing a fucking script for this.

Another thought - doesn't dropbox give the writer the ability to continually change his script whenever he wants to?  Could be an issue...

I say just post it on the thread like the old challenges...

Surprise entries do get voted on but as always the vote doesn't count toward the showdown.  That's between the two who are competing.

Wow.  What a strange coincidence this thread just got reopened again.

I was going through my PM's last week and came across the script I sent to Michael for a story I wrote for one of the challenges.

In 1840s New Orleans, debutantes search for the Fountain of Youth in a graveyard.

I never realized how much I liked the story I wrote and I was going to post it up officially as soon as Don starts taking submissions again.

Definately weird weird timing.

Marc, you old Cleveland mofo...I remember that script.  I think I liked it...think I loved the premise.

Strangely, I've been thinking about tuning up my challenge script, cuz I really liked it as well.  I may actually post it as a short soon.

Cornie, I didn't realize that only the votes for the 2 "real" entries counted.  Great idea..more than an idea, I guess since that's the way it has been..  

What about my dropbox comment?

Jump in! It's just between Michael and I, But if you win the votes I will tip my hat, sir. I've got a great one cooking! Starts with a pit bull humping-- Shit! giving too much away.

I agree that the entries should just be posted here,  raw. You have to space out your own writes, but I don't mind.

You guys should try out the CODE command for html.  It is done pretty much the same way as a quote.

Code

INT.  SIMPLYSCRIPTS - NIGHT

Bert types, then posts.

ON MONITOR

His words are in the code box.  It looks so pretty.

          JAMES (O.S)
     Crikes!  How did you do that?

James burps.  It rumbles like thunder.

          BERT (O.S.)
     Have another beer and figure
     it out yourself, Einstein.



Just sayin'.  Much nicer than posting them "raw", as you say.


Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

Y'know James, shit like that just takes all the fun out of it.


@bert - I'm fine with the code.  And yes, this is screenrider.   Good call.  Now this is the part where I either get booted or Don lets me stay.   I wont hold my breath on staying but at least I've got a clear conscience.  Do what you must.

That was my challenge. Ryan whooped me as usual!

I did have murderous lesbians, a monster in a coffin, and a future President as my hero(and this was before Abe was hunting zombies at the theaters!).

Murderous lesbians are automatic vote getters. One more lesbian and I might have had him!

Wait...WTF????  On 2 levels...

The Harrop returns without even letting his old buddy know...and challenges me to 1 of your old "challenges"?  Shame on you, Michael.  What up, bro?  Hope things are going well for you.

Kev, you wrote the script I'm thinking about...or Marc?  WTF?

Jeff, you didn't know M.Alexander was Screenrider?

I've thought, ever since I saw it, the Psalm 19 was a bit of a dead giveaway. Of course, his posting style is definitely very similar, anyway. =)
