What are your thoughts on making a movie out of WOMEN? Why hasn't it been done? Could it be done well?
Easy, because you're a type, and likely not a person of any depth or substance. It's not your fault, those are just the cards you were dealt. Easy cards. And you'll play them to some moderate wealth somehow, grinding out more shit for idiots to consume and dispose of. Maybe an episode or two of Entourage or Californication, if you're particularly lucky. And you'll feel good, for the most part. But a tiny part of you will always crave the credibility you can never have. That little unfulfilled spark will drive you to continue to try and create something great. But you will always fall short. Again, not your fault.How do you know me so well, MJP?
No offense, but you're full of shit, baby.
We're talking about adapting a novel that has existed in the public domain for 30+ years. If there was a lawsuit to be brought, it would be against Bukowski for writing about these women in the first place, and it would have been done already. That's WHY there is that disclaimer at the beginning of the book. That's WHY the names in the story have been changed. There is no danger of a lawsuit in adapting this novel.
Exactly, yes. So you do understand.Had I come in and said, "I'm thinking of writing a screenplay for Women," I may have received an entirely different barrage of accusations of being a dipshit screenwriter who should never go near a work of Bukowski's.
Speaking of Women, if you guys were women carrying on like this, now is about the time where a guy would come along and interject cat noises. This has always pissed me off that when men get into stupid tiffs there's nobody there to make a cat noise, while us women ALWAYS have to hear some stupid guy make that cat noise pretty much every time we get into some kind of argument. So, I hereby begin the promotion of the "ding-dong" noise for men.
