Michael G. Harrop in the Hizzouse! When I saw Bert call you out I went back and read your latest posts. I knew it was you! I also knew you wouldn't turn down a challenge. Despite what you think of me, I do not run around these boards challenging other writers to a showdown. Just you, buddy.

I don't know if Don will let you stay, but I'm all for it.  And I will not make things difficult for you as long as you don't bang people over their heads with your religious point of view. Leave the mods alone. If you put a script up, leave it up!

I've been really good here of late... sticking to reviews and responses to people who read my stuff. Nothing more. I sleep better at night.

I know we've tried this a few times before without success. I have a one hour window to write when I get home and before the Browns kickoff for their yearly thrashing by the Ravens. I know my story and will try to get it in. I suggest we do it the old way as my grainy pdfs are a dead give away. I may try to create an html like Bert suggested.  Then PM them to Michael.

All the mooshy welcome back shit aside, I plan on this being nothing short of an epic-level ass whoopin. Just you and me, buddy! Mano a mano!

Okay, James, now that you're done beating your chest, good to see you, too.  Yeah, hopefully Don will alow this to happpen, but truth be told I'm not gonna hold my breath.  I'm expecting this account to get nixed at any moment.  But until then I'll just keep writing my script as if...

As far as it being anonymous?  Peeps can spot your style of writing as well as mine a mile away.   So I see no point in even trying to fool the masses.

Just submit it, name it and claim it, IMO.


Code

FADE IN:

INT. WALMART - NIGHT

SCREENRIDER, (50ís) grabs a box of Wheaties, drops it in his basket.

He turns a corner sees JWENT, 40's, dressed like a pirate, with a
box of Tampons.

Awkward beat. 
                                             
                           JWENT
                  Uh...I was gonna use these to plug the holes
                  after I shoot ya full of lead. 

                    
                           SCREENRIDER
                  I see. 

 Another beat.  Nothin' left to say. 

They go oppoasite directions.  
                             
                       
       



Bert's idea is good aside from the fact that this code is kind of a pain.  Basically have to copy and paste script then format it again.   It'd really be best tio do dropbox, IMO.

Holy crap!  I've never read a thread with plot points and twists before!  I'm dying to see the ending and resolution!

Welcome back, Michael, if you were ever gone.  Lol.  I had no idea or clue.

Hey Jeff.  James is from Cleveland.  I'm from Youngstown.  It has all the same drugs, sex, and guns as Cleveland does, but half the price.

Anyway, I'm not too sure which script for the 1840's New Orleans challenge your referring to, but Michael didn't post mine up with the 2 that were officially in the challenge.  He posted it after with a couple of other ones.


Yo Marc, the Niners are staying in Youngstown now, before we head to NY to smash the Jets.

Any sightings?

Am writing now. Will try that HTML thing after I'm done, but if it's a boat load of work, hell with it. I'm a sucker for tradition and this is the way it's been ran since its inception... A simple PM to Cornetto and he posts them anonymously.

I think that is the way to go and even you've done it before. Less work for mods and if you like the script you've written, submit to Don after the challenge in proper pdf format.

That's the way I'm going. Hope to have mine done tonight!

Keep it anonymous.  I won't post it if your name is on it.  And it has to be a pdf. Thanks.

Okay, so two big things made me decide to "un-lurk" and post - the return of Screenrider (welcome back Mike, for however long or short it is), and the fact that Pia has Lionsgate distributing her film (Congratulations! Outstanding work and very happy for you!).

James, worth learning Drop. I'm no software guy, and it only took me a few minutes.

With Drop, if you post a script in the future, you can make changes without bothering Don.

Also, I have to say, I prefer reading the PDF than the posts in the thread.

Ok, go get 'em! I'll read and vote.

Okay, I will probably take you up on that Michael, I already have a site for hosting scripts, but it's a dead giveaway. And I know you love dealing with me and SR!

On page 3 and digging it. I will take full use of my 48hrs though and post tomorrow. By 7pm eastern time. That's when I started talking smack.

And yes, I agree both scripts should be anonymous for now. I won't put my name on mine.

And then! The three people who give a shit can vote. Ha ha.

People are gonna know whose script is whose anyway.  But if you want anonymous, then anonymous it'll be.  Thanks.

Yeah.  YSU's stands are only on one side of the field, the other half is open to the street.  It was a bitch to get the kids to the dentist today.

And lol.  I just realized.  Now there's two teams in Youngstown that can beat the Browns.

Sent my script to Cornetto, so I'm in under the wire. I don't know what time it is in Oz. I did ask him to do the dropbox thingy for me, but I will try it out later.

I always used yolasite to host my scripts, but I was continually pissed off as I was making changes to my feature when readers were bringing up mistakes. And then the next reader would bring up the same stuff that I already fixed.

everyone here seems to dig it so I will give it a look soon. Off to watch some locale high school football. Best of luck, SR!

And you know I don't mean that!
