I saw “There Will Be Blood” yesterday. Quite enjoyed it and have been walking around with four words going through my head ever since: I drink your milkshake. If you’ve seen it you probably know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t seen it, you really should. It’s still sinking into my head, which is praise enough, and of course Daniel Day-Lewis doing his thing on the big screen is worth the ticket price. Something else that struck me was the use of the movie’s score. I haven’t seen music used like that since…I don’t know when. It’s a character in its own right. Anyway, I drink your milkshake.
I’ve received a couple of e-mails from people asking for writing advice and I was planning on writing a post or two this week answering those questions. The most common of those questions has been, “Where do you get your ideas?” And, in a fantastic bout of irony, I’m having trouble coming up with anything to say on the subject. Hopefully I’ll get after this tomorrow. I’ve got the day off and by all rights should be able to come up with some coherent way of explaining what’s been going on in my head the past nine or so months.
For now, I’ve got absolutely nothing for story 17 and am just puttering along like it’s still the weekend.
I drink your milkshake.
