Kissing in the Rain, Episode 6: 3 weeks later

It’s been raining all week, and though he’s been dying to go outside, the familiar downpours only remind him of the one person that he doesn’t want to think about. He doesn’t want to admit that he misses her. He doesn’t want to admit that maybe his decision to forgo future films that have her name on the call sheet was a mistake.

He flops down on the couch and starts flipping channels when “Say Anything” comes on the screen—he’d been meaning to check it out, but he’d been trying to avoid anything that involved she who must not be named. And then there are the words, “Directed by Cameron Crowe.”

"John Hughes was a cool dude." But he didn’t direct a boom box scene. And Lily hadn’t called him on his lack of 80s movie knowledge, she’d just smiled. Before he knew what was happening, he tweeted,

"John Hughes was a cool dude, but Cameron Crowe went on tour with Led Zepplin. cc: @lilyeverett"

And then he was lost in the story of Diane Court and Lloyd Dobbler. He looked at his phone and realized that it was too late to delete the tweet. Maybe, just maybe, this was a good thing. He picked up his phone and opened twitter.

"@lilyeverett Lloyd Dobbler deserved better."

At that moment he looked out the window and realized that the rain had stopped. He pressed backspace until all evidence was gone. Like the rain, it had vanished.

Kissing in the Rain: Lighting Changes

yulinkuang:

It happens during a lighting change, between the fourth and fifth shots of the scene.

They’ve been sitting in silence against the set dressing for the past ten minutes, and she can’t get him to make eye contact with her. It’s cold – they’ve been colder, but she’s still shivering under her towel, and he’s still resolutely staring off in another direction. Like making a little small talk would kill him.

“Five minutes till we go again,” she hears the AD call out.

Lily drops her head onto his shoulder.

She can feel him stiffen instantly – like she’s a complete stranger who’s suddenly decided to take a nap on him, like they haven’t been aggressively making out for the past two hours, like they haven’t had six different lifetimes’ worth of falling in love with each other.

Perfect. Just perfect. All the applause for yulinkuang.

I’ve never had such a huge coffee…bloody hell.

I had a venti Italian roast from Starbucks once. I saw through time for a week.

Let me clear up a common misconception: Light roasts have more caffeine than dark roasts. If you really need the caffeine for energy, you’d have much more success with a light roast—add a couple of shots of espresso if you really think you need it.

So, maybe you’re just super sensitive to caffeine and you’re lucky that you didn’t have a blonde roast because then you’d have become an oracle.

Then again, there are a lot of people like me that could drink that and fall asleep.

Of Transmedia Storytelling Projects and Ice Cream Sundaes (or how everyone has their own favorite toppings)

yulinkuang:

spinstermoderne:

Yesterday, flutish wrote a fabulous treatise on transmedia web series projects and why the web series component is the most compelling piece. I wrote a reblog response explaining my thoughts on transmedia and multi-platform storytelling, whether…

Don’t forget Part 2: The Dickens Edition, shipwreckedcomedy! In the second installment, I put that ice cream shop where everyone waited for the next chapter of The Pickwick Papers!

My absolute favorite thing about transmedia storytelling is that there isn’t “one way to transmedia.” Read more

Incorrect quote attributed to the incorrect person and it’s got over 4 thousand notes, great job tumblr!!!

But I Didn’t Write This - Ep. 1: Ode by Arthur O’Shaughnessy currently has 5,258 views on YouTube, so you win! Yay!

Well, the quote is incorrect, but Willy Wonka did quote “Ode” in the film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. This is why attribution is important, kids!!

Dessert or transmedia storytelling metaphor? (There was also hot fudge, but it smothered the other toppings, and this was a pay by the pound place where hot fudge is free! After all of that hot fudge talk, there was no way I’d skip out on the hot fudge!) #transmedia
