people who are bad people
There are people running around this big world were borrowing who are just mean. Just bad and mean and no good. Or annoying. Offensively annoying. And yes, these are people who have redeeming qualities, Im sure. No doubt. People who probably have hopes and aspirations and fears and look for bargains at the supermarket and laugh when they hear a funny joke and do not like certain things about the way they look and are willing to eat sushi even though it looks kinda weird who like rollercoasters and the smell of salt coming off the ocean and love to melt into a hug and be asked How Are You and smile when they see a ladybug and agree that Abbey Road is just a goddamn perfect album.
However, on balance, these same people do very bad things and deserve unhappiness and to never be hugged again, at least until they amend their ways. These people, I would like to line up against a wall, and throw eggs at. These people I would like to make cry, to watch tears roll down their faces and see them genuinely unhappy and then make the connection I have been bad. I should stop. Here are some of those people:

You should all be ashamed of yourselves.
Im having drinks with The Shark tomorrow. We shall talk about the script. Im nervous for some reason. The two things we have to discuss are two things on which we could come to a head 1) the direction she suggests taking the script in to make it more "sellable" and 2) the terms of the contract. Must put Game Face on tomorrow night.
Had dinner with Bill last night. Depressing. Glad we did it, but as our other friend Chet came along, I had to hear the whole thing again and during got a little frustrated. I had to remind myself that this is brain chemistry and not within his control. Went home and good neighbor Jack was having a party 4 people showed up so plenty of beer was available.
Beth got me surfing humane society websites all day looking at gorgeous puppies and dogs for adoption. Then I came across San Franciscos SPCA site and discovered something that confirms how much I fucking love that wacky place from which I hail: they are the first city to implement a no kill policy (with a few exceptions) from Animal Control to the SPCA.

Ive been reading this guy for a while. I like his 12/10 entry quite a bit.
This time of year in the trade papers (I just started subscribing to The Hollywood Reporter) studios run For Your Consideration Ads pushing for various films in various categories they think might have a chance. Well, poor Sally Kirkland got her mid-level agency to take out this shit little ad pushing her for Best Supporting Actress for EdTV. This kind of home campaign worked years ago for Diane Ladd, but I doubt this is gonna work. They pull quotes from various reviews of her performance in the crappy movie, but eventually scrape the bottom, "Kirkland has her moments as well ". I smell Oscar!!!
