Off Topic – Not about Tony. About Aimee - post author Don

I know that “SimplyScripts” is suppose to be about “Scripts” and “Screenwriting” and I try to stick to that. But, this has been going through my head for quite some time. So, before I post up the scripts from the 1+6 Week Challenge, I thought I’d get this down on paper. I’ve tried several times before and haven’t been successful. I’m going to get this down on paper and push it out and walk away.

Last December, one of the members of the SimplyScripts discussion board took his own life. I never met Tony Gangemi face to face. I’ve read his work that he and his writing partner and wife Aimee put out. I thought they were a great team and wrote some great stuff. Tony is my contemporary. Old people die. People you don’t know die. When someone I know, particularly someone very much like me, dies, it bothers me, tho I don’t choose to admit it to anyone.

Oddly enough, or perhaps not so oddly, I have found comfort in Amiee’s blog, SixWordsBlog. Her inaugural essay The Still Point is a frank and honest recounting of the events of December 21st. Amiee is very open about her feelings on what was, ironically, the longest night of the year. She has been posting regularly for the past few months. I admire her courage to put herself emotionally out there in writing.

Just got word that an online friend recently lost his father. I wrote to him, what I hope were encouraging words. I told him to talk about his feelings and get them down on paper. And, get someone to read it. Don’t worry if you got it right or not. I’m taking my own advice. Good luck, Jack.

Thank you for indulging me.

Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Star Wars Episode VII Treatment? Fan Fic? - post author Don

Thanks Albert for the heads up on this. I agree with Albert, “I have NO IDEA if its genuine or fan-fic, but thought it was interesting. ”

This treatment found here:, is entitled, “Episode VII – An Immortal Legacy” and has Michael Arndt’s name on it.

I’m more inclined to believe this is a piece of fan-fic that someone has put Arndt’s name to to see how far it goes. The characters from the original trilogy have far too large a role in this treatment. Also, it reads exactly how I and a million other Star Wars fans would want the story to play out.

Talk about it on the discussion board.

The Evil Dead vs Evil Dead – screenplay compare and contrast - post author Don
