I spent most of my day in the mountains with a new friend. I love the stage in new friendships when you are able to talk for hours on end. Politics. Old romances. The role of creativity. Philosophy. I’ve always been fascinated with the way that conversations evolve from one topic to the next. When a conversation goes on for hours, you can usually track it back like an organic, living thing.
I spent most of my evening working on a script for Elance. With every passing day, I am becoming more and more interesting in screenwriting. Instead of aiming for writing another novel in the second half of 2012, I think I’m going to try for a movie-length script. All I have to decide now is what story I should write about. I have plenty of stories in mind. I just don’t know which one would translate best into film.
Today, instead of a memory update, here in an influence update and a music video.
I liked the song, “We Are Young”. Fun didn’t hit my radar, however, until the some “Some Nights” hit the radio. I am in love with it. My inner history nerd loves the video that goes along with the song. The lead singer is so emotional. Plus, the romance that they push in the video is so beautiful. Make sure to watch the video.
