AARON SORKIN TO PIONEER THE WALK AND SCRABULOUS →
I saw this on /Film earlier and they blew chunks all over the idea. And after thinking about it, I actually agree with CHUD’s take more. And it was awesome reading Sorkin’s answer to fan questions in the F-Book group he made. [Also, Josh Malina, Jeremy Goodwin/Will Bailey himself, makes a few quick digital appearances in the thread.]
Wow this is great. livejamie: This is what it’s like to lose to Michael Phelps.
There's Something about Whiteheads.
Today I woke up with a whitehead on my left eyelid. Its awesome and painful at the same time.
I like the idea of freezing a moment in time in a place like a journal or a tumblr post. I spent a part of last week going through some old papers and journals and I always love seeing the moments in time that are frozen on those sheets of paper. The same can be said for browsing through my tumblr archive. Each post is a moment frozen in time. Its a main part of why I started this beast in the...

Spielberg Out of 'Chicago 7'...is 'Bourne'... →
I just read this article about The Trial of the Chicago 7. While the writer points out that Greengrass is a great pick to fill Spielberg’s seat and the cast is maybe the best ensemble this side of Ocean’s 11 or Magnolia, he fails to mention the real key to the perfect movie—Aaron “West Wing” Sorkin. Good god, what are they waiting for? Make this thing happen!
