Do you guys ever block out your writing projects to try and figure out the scene structures? I was really skeptical of this before I wrote Last Call, but now I’m a true believer. I can’t express how helpful I find it to be able to block out scenes on index cards so you can physically restructure your book. For those curious (crickets), I’m just under 50,000 words on a new novel. It’s about dinosaurs (just kidding (not really)).
On July 9th, 1993 AD, humanity received its greatest gift: the theatrical release of the dopest film ever made: Weekend at Bernie’s II. Join me in honoring this cinematic masterpiece for its 20th anniversary.
This July 9th at 7pm eastern time, we will livetweet a national viewing of Weekend at Bernie’s II under the hasgtag #WAB2. DVDs can be purchased for only $6.99 through Amazon, and can you really put a price tag on a film Variety called “a mildly diverting farcical caper”?
Together, we will share thoughts, critiques, and memories of our favorite undead buddy comedy in real time. Together, we will become infinite.
In the great big Garden
There were two lonely banners
And a chubby Carmelo
And a video of
Earl going pipestrong on all
And Novak and Cope and Camby were sitting on pine
And the decapitated head of Tyson Chandler
And YA author Amar’e
And a ’95 Co-Rookie of the Year
And a rapper named Iman
And Pope Pablo and Woodson’s beard and an extra large burrito just for Ray Felton
And little old Spike who was screaming “Blue and Gold Skies Forever!”
Goodnight pipestrong Earl
Goodnight League Pass
And the two lonely banners dead in the rafters
Goodnight Novak, Cope, and Camby
Goodnight Tyson’s zombie corpse
And goodnight STAT and your bones made from glass
And goodnight Lala
Goodnight little blogs
And goodnight Stephen A. who knows everyone personally
And goodnight Woody
And goodnight to Spike whimpering “John Starks.”
Goodnight noises everywhere.
Last night, mere moments after the Knicks’ excruciating loss to Boston, I recorded a podcast about Last Call in the City of Bridges with the fine folks at Books and Booze. I want to thank Renee Pickup, Jessica Taylor, and Dakota Taylor for having me. I tried to keep it together and only devolved into a long tirade about Reggie Miller once. Topics include social media, Nintendo, Weekend at Bernie’s II, and the time David James Keaton bought me a Spider-Man fighting ring for our trip to Vegas.
