On That Hipster Shit, And Yous A Hipster, Bitch


I went and did some writing at the bar last night. It was the first time I’ve done that in a few weeks and I’d forgotten how much I not only enjoy it but how I feel more creatively productive.

I finished outlining a story I’ve had an idea for and am going to start working on it as a script. I’ve had a few different ideas for things and most of them lend themselves better to prose; novels or short stories. This one though from the outset felt like more of a screenplay than anything else so that’s what I’m going to do.

I put the question out on twitter earlier today for anyone who might have a response; what are some of your favourite movie scripts regardless of how the final product turned out?

I’ve not made a habit of reading screenplays since I was in college but I was sent some great ideas and I’m going to read a bunch as research. I’m really looking forward to checking out the ones I’ve not even seen the movie for.

There are definitely bad movies out there that could have been very good if not for a few creative choices along the way so I’m curious for some good examples of a good script but poor movie. If you have any suggestions, send them my way!

This whole post is reminding me of a Childish Gambino lyric and making me feel like a douchebag. Thats also where todays title comes from

Childish Gambino - L.E.S.

“Yo, but not in a lame way

You ain’t living out in BK

You ain’t working on a screenplay

Your baby daddy ain’t a DJ”
