Curious Clodfelter Rewrite Is Complete!

No Comments

Friends & Neighbors! I just finished my “Curious Clodfelter” script and have submitted it to Amazon Studios and my brother is going to shop it around. My goal for next year is to finish several projects including an action/bank heist screenplay I’ve been plotting for years. I need to buy a new laptop (my trusty Lenovo Thinkpad is dying–I’ve had it for 10 years) and I have other expenses. I’m trying to raise $2000 over the next 60 days. Please consider contributing to my Fundly campaign! Everyone who contributes will get a PDF of the finished screenplay and a thank you in the end credits if and when the film gets produced.

Songs for my TV pilot: XXX Web Site

No Comments

I’m working on a pilot for a TV series about my first job in NYC: working for an adult website in 1997-98 with a crew of young skateboard punk HTML-ers and a host of colorful characters including a boss who would ideally be played by Bobby Cannavale. I’m making a list of songs from that year that were played a lot in the coder room. I didn’t like some of these songs but they help me get back into the era and the mood:

  • “Block Rockin’ Beats” Chemical Brothers
  • “6 Underground” Sneaker Pimps
  • “Tubthumping” Chumbawamba (many people don’t know this was a very politically-involved band; I use this for the finale of the film)
  • “The Beautiful People” Marilyn Manson
  • “One Headlight” The Wallflowers
  • “Mo Money Mo Problems” The Notorious B.I.G.
  • “Lovefool” The Cardigans
  • “Karma Police” Radiohead
  • “Barbie Girl” Aqua (horrible song but one guy kept playing it and it was the #3 song of 1997)
  • “Candle in the Wind ’97” Elton John (not played in the room but the #1 song of 1997)
  • “Bittersweet Symphony” The Verve
  • “Wannabe” Spice Girls (I have this song playing as piped-in music at the Barnes and Noble I worked at before I got the website job)
  • “Brimful of Asha” Cornershop
  • and more to be added, especially a lot of death metal
