I gotta quit smoking. And I need a nap. It's 6:47am and I'm watching DVRed Adult Swim. The inspiration from the Con still resonates. I need to make a plan.
Continue work on the pitches. The Flash with Phil, Strange Tales with Reilly, and Superman with Burnham.
Next wave Tales to Astonish. Hulk & Wasp. Ask Khoi after scripting.
Mercury University with Doug. Bart Allen becomes Zoom. The flipside to the Flash legacy, meant to balance out and help carve the future out of the formelss void.
Need an original third.
Mike Manchester: Mall Security (Oni Press)
Twentysix: Superhero romance (Slave Labor)
Pop Culture: Titanium (Dabel)
God I feel sick. Eyes dropping, drooping low, can't hold the skull.
Finish SSP's Novel, read Boston's Scripts. Talk with Tim about pitch. Dark Horse. Adventure Horror. Jung or Keruoac. On the Road meets Lovecraft.
Script short film Ex. Write outline for Bob Awesome. Plan ideas for Adult Swim pitch. Liquid Fury cartoon. More animated movie, but scripted three acts to break up for TV. Lil League.
Liquid Fury Animated.
Dark loner. Empty world. Flashbacks to childhood.
Start Tower of Brahma chapter 57. the Twelve. This is nearly the end. I'm re-writing my future. I rewind seconds back, and catapult forward, always lurching, rocking, swinging into the future. You should see me dance.
Get Valentine's Day gifts. She's yours. Make the first one special. Kiss her at midnight. No need to wear the Punisher shirt or go see Eternal Sunshine alone this year. An Awesome 80's Prom it is my dear.
See Dark Knight and Iron Man. Compare and contrast and explain why Iron Man is far superior.
Start project: Save DC Comics on the TenTon Forum. One sheet illustrations with four action panels and a series outline with four short stories describing the action.
Build up fan base among DC fans and together we can change DC comics to be what we want it to be rather than to be left in the hands of business men and raving fanboys.
At the rate of me inadvertantly (occasionally blatantly) insulting professionals I'm going to have to crazy talented and smart about this.
But fuck it, I'm doing it my way.
And as Boston always says: there's always film.
Let's do this thing.
Ps- Story ideas
Star Wars. Doctor's take on brain damage between trilogies as they took away personality and individuality.
Justice League as child gods.
Batman - spoiled rich kid
Superman - do-gooder poor kid
Wonder Woman - international brat
Green Lantern - military brooder
Flash - midwestern blue collar
Aquaman - new England dreamer
Atom - distracted scientist
Justice League High.
Kids re-enacting major DC history
Continuity sculpted to a simple mass of imaginary reality
Justice League as Lost/Heroes
Group coming together. Unsure of how they got powers. Wanting to do good. Deciding how to fix the world. Call it 2012.
Supervillain plot to strip heroes of powers. Orchestrated by the superheroes. Seeing the spread of powers and the damage that could be done, they began an endless cycle of moral combat that could slow the coming destruction.
The world has ended. We fight to slow it down. Lost in the moment, we don't think of the future, we linger in the past.
Heroes is such a bad show. Sigh.
