This week San Diego Momma’s PROMPTuesday #23: TV Pilot asks participants to write a TV pilot bit, in screenplay format. So here’s the part about how I’m a cheater. I wrote a very short, single episode, brief scene, small dialogue exchange (read: pilot-like) screenplay back in the days when Blog This Mom! had two readers and one of them was me. So I’m posting a link to my heretofore undiscovered screenplay. Deb says the title has to be either “The (Your Name Here) Chronicles” or “Crazy like (Your Name Here).” I have been hearing a lot about this Your Name Here fellow. Seems he’s all over blank forms these days, and he gets around the Internet as well. I’m not sure we should be giving this Your Name Here dude the title role in our TV pilots, but this is what Deb is asking of us. So, much like David Duchovny’s character had to endure in TV Set, my “Script for a Sunday Evening” has been renamed “Crazy Like Your Name Here.” Did I mention it was short? Really, the “Crazy Like Your Name Here” (previously titled “Script for a Sunday Evening”) screenplay is just the ten-second preview soundbite for the commercial for the TV Pilot. I know. Cheater.
Now for the part about how I’m dilettante. In all the free time that I had this morning while I was not writing a script, I got that Men at Work song, Land Down Under, totally and relentlessly stuck in my head. So I put hyperlinks to Land Down Under into this post because you know the rules: If I can get that song stuck in your head, it will leave mine. While Land Down Under was firing to and fro though the synapses of my brain, I got to wondering what exactly IS in Vegemite. So I Googled “Vegemite.”
