New Story and emails and Olympics

So I started writing a new story yesterday and realized it’s the first one that I don’t have a preset soundtrack for. It feels good though – just letting the imagination flow. It’s going to be a layered epic, that will include intrigue, second guessing, some religious stuff (not annoying bible thumping shit, but more a question of the duality of the soul and reincarnation), action, and of course, love. Fun stuff. And I found a couple songs that would go wickedly amazing with a couple of the last scenes.

Over the last week and a half I’ve sent a truckload of emails. Although because an email is only a few kbs the truck would have to be pretty small. The best response so far – “Thanks – but this is not for me – good luck!”. Short and to the point. I like that.

The Olympics are here…in Canada! Some people are saying we could finish with the highest medal count of any country. That would be uber-sweet. But it makes me think…if we do win the most medals why don’t we just compete in the Winter games and say a big F-U to the Summer Olympics. With all due respect to our summer athletes, why not focus everything on what we’re good at? That way we can clean up at the Olympics (Winter) that not everyone cares about (kinda like we do in hockey) but still be super snotty about it when people question our sense of surperiority (sp?).

The Countries that don’t compete in the Winter Games + The U.S.A – “Why do you care if you’re so good at the Olympics that not everyone is at. You think you’re better than us?”

Us (Canada) – “Yes, we clearly are better than you. We won the most medals. Why don’t you go and be good at not giving people the health care they need and bombing things.”

TCTDCITWG – “It’s only the States that bomb things.”

Us (Canada) – “I know. That sucks.”

TU.S.A – “What the hell?”

TCTDCITWG – “Booooooo.”

New York State + California – “Can we join you?”

Us (Canada) – “Only if we can have D.C. and Obama and you get Harper and Alberta.”

New York State + California – “Done deal if Washington State can come.”

Us (Canada) – “Sure, just leave Texas.”

NYS + CALI – “I’m sending the paperwork to the commissioner’s office as we speak.”

Us (Canada) – “Sweet.”


and of course…love.
