Seanman7 Is A Go!!!

People may recall my awful movie ideas I listed a month or two ago. Well, it looks like Seanman7 may be a go. My writing partner and I have completed the second draft on a sitcom pilot. But before we film it, we feel we should work on some smaller projects to minimize the mistakes on the pilot and gain some experience. Anyway, one of the three ideas we plan to film is a trailer for the horrendous movie idea Seanman7. Below is a quick description:

It's early 2004 and Google has just announced their Gmail service. On the day it's first available, Sean "Seanman" Shaffer waits patiently by his computer to ensure he can snap up the email address seanman. Unfortunately, the best he can do is seanman7. He proceeds to hack into Google to get the information on Seanman and Seanman0-Seanman6. He then systematically tracks each one down, starting with Seanman6, killing them and taking over their email identity. Until the final showdown with Seanman. Obviously this would be a generic horror movie, though we write comedy so the trailer would be a hopefully funny spoof on the genre.

So keep an eye out on Life Is Crap for either the trailer or a link to a website with the trailer. The best guess here is late July/early August.

Seanman7: When the name is the game

(1) Its BATED breath, not 'baited breath'.

(2) Exactly how little are you? The smallest person I ever met was just under 3 inches tall (that's lss than one fourth a standard 12 inch ruler). Yet this never daunted him - in fact, he dreamed of becoming an NBA superstar. This was pretty stupid of him, actually, I hope he hasn't invested too much time with that option. The tallest person I ever met was 19 feet tall - she had hands the size of manhole covers. She used to file down the soles of here sneajers to lose that extra coupla millimeters. She dreamed of being a jockey, the fool. But at least she followed her bliss. Last I heard, she was 37, and lliving with her Mom.

There's a major problem with the Seanman7 scenario, namely, that even if he kills Seanman 0 thru 6, there's no guarantee that he'd be able to snag 'Seanman'. Some ISPs put the name out of circulation after it's changed, some allow it to be used again after 6 months or more. In any case, even if he did get the moniker, it'd make him a suspect in the eyes of the police.

A better idea is one in which your protganist is being stalked by OTHER loonies on the net (namely seanman 8 thru 999999999). Or you can have all sorts of nuts going after various monikers, and they keep banging into each iother preparing for their various murders, which is always an occasion to catch up, talk shop, review murders, compare lists, and so forth. Oh, and if you use my ideas without proper compensation, I will sue your ass back to the stome age. For real, yo (note the 'street' lingo there - pretty cool huh? Kind of a 'hip hop flava', as they say.)

That's the point - the ridiculousness of it all. Why does Seanman7 have to kill anyone but Seanman if he would then be able to steal his email address? Because it's a movie. This is meant to be a comedic sketch and part of that is pointing out how convoluted and stupid the thought process is.

Yeah, I thought the criticism was serious but I wasn't upset. I was just trying to set the record straight on Seanman7, because when he arrives you're name is in danger. Plus, if I was there would have been a lot of exclamations, like such:

That's the point - the ridiculousness of it all!!!!!!!

Now that's one stressed out cat.

Multiple exclamation points are not a sign of acute distress or anger online; one (!) may indicate real anger, 3 or more and it might as well be an ameliorating winking smiley (;).

If one is truly angry (or else truly NUTS, they type in ALL CAPS ARE; it's like the cyber equiv of SCREAMING AHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!! ARGGH!!!!!!! etc.

I know that Tom and Mike are not american mother...

Seanman7 is hilarious, I hope you film it soon!

Why do you have so many damn proofreaders on your blog?

Angry folk?

I am confused simply because it's all so...anonymous.. I can't get a feel for people's tone in comments...are you joking? Can't tell. I can always tell when Mike and Tom da Bomb are being joking or serious.

I'm not really sure how you login in unanonymously - what, you make an eblogger account and then login using that name? Feh... I'm too ADDH for that. I'd rather just post away.
