In Flanders Field - posted by Don

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Spec Scout – new site - posted by Don

Here is a new site I ran across.

Spec Scout is a site that combines a script coverage library with a scoring system designed to highlight the highest quality screenplays circulating Hollywood. They prepare coverage on all the recent sales, all the recent scripts to hit the market by agents/managers, and are also leveling the playing field for writers by promoting the highest scoring unrepped material from screenwriting competitions and elsewhere.

If anyone has any experirences with the site, let me know.

How to bind a screenplay - posted by Don

I’m sunning myself at a secret, undisclosed location that some may call The French Riviera of New Jersey.

I have been unable to make any updates to the site, but I thought that this video may be of use to some of the more experienced screenwriters who visit the site.

You can purchase binding supplies mentioned in this video here and here.

Army Math: Bringing It All Back Home - posted by Don

Congrats to scriptwriter Sam Mills. His piece Army Math: Bringing It All Back Home was bought by University of Chicago’s euphony.

“ARMY MATH” is an eyewitness account of the bombing by the SDS Weather Underground of the University of Wisconsin’s Army Mathematics Research Center on Monday, August 24, 1970.

Sam adds, “[I]t’s an account of the effect that level of violence had on the antiwar movement downstream of the event. My piece treats the aftermath – the counterculture’s rejection of violence as a way of ending the Vietnam War – at some length.

At the time, I was a student living across University Avenue at the St. Francis House, the Episcopal Student Center, when the Madison cell of the terror group blew up the Department of Defense research facility (e.g., the Claymore mine was developed there), killing a young post-doc named Robert Fassnacht. (Though only 33, “Fass” was already one of the nation’s foremost authorities on superconductivity.)

As I write in my account – with only a modicum of poetic license – “I was blown out of bed and woke up in a carnal embrace with a stained-glass Virgin Mary.”

The 1750-pound ANFO (ammonium nitrate fuel oil) bomb devastated the campus, and for a year afterward, turned UW into “Old Plywood U.” (It was calculated that more than 38,000 square feet of plywood were required to cover all the broken windows.)

It was the most destructive act of domestic terror in American history until Tim McVeigh and Oklahoma City 25 years later. Ironically, left and right used identical munitions – though McVeigh’s bomb had an extra 100 pounds of fertilizer.”

Sam now lives in Pensacola, FL, and can be reached at sam @ sammills.com
