Screenwriting Software Of The Week
Mood:  chatty
Tonight, I downloaded "Great Dialogue Software" from the website at the bottom of this post.

I've always enjoyed great dialogue in screenplays or stageplays. Stuff like:

"I never met a dame that didn't understand a slap on the face or a slug from a forty-five." Play it Again Sam, by Woody Allen

"What we have here is a failure to communicate" Cool Hand Luke with Paul Newman.

"I can't beat him. I just want to go the distance."
Sly Stallone's Rocky.

"I could have of been somebody. I could have been a fighter." Marlon Brando's On the Waterfront.

The software is $19.95 US and I'm looking forward to using it.

Movie Review 102: Hoodwinked
Mood:  down
Animated retelling of the fairy tale starts as a dumb unfunny parody of the Red-Riding story told from different viewpoints.

Half-way through, the film turns into a crime mystery action flick which is entertaining, but doesn't save the movie.

About thirty minutes into it, I wanted to turn it off. Two stars.

At Hotel California death isn't the end. It's a new beginning.
Below is the new logline for Hotel California. It's like expressing what it's about in 25 words or less. It isn't easy to do.

"In an effort to recruit a young woman and her family, a new age religious group throws them into frightening paranormal mysteries and challenging cosmic puzzles."

The whole fascination with this subject lead to 22 megabits of preview webpages.

If you want to begin the journey to find the answers to these mysteries go to ZZ mountain top and discuss it with a holy man who has web access.

You can also take a trip with Canadian students to Katimavik.

TV Series Review: Ghost Whisperer
Mood:  a-ok
This is the first TV series since Star Trek: Voyager that I've become involved in.

Certainly, it's not "Spooks On The Loose" or "Things from the Grave."

The ghosts are sympathetic characters that are often hung up on incomplete communications with the living. That was true about tonight's show, "Pilot". He died before he could see or talk to his son.

The son, genuinely, missed his father and relied only on his late mother's experiences in order to know anything about his dad.

Jennifer Love Hewitt(the medium)brings them together, of course, for a meaningful family moment.

I am aware that there can be contact between spirits and human beings. Why shouldn't there be?

Maybe in the future, a computer interface will be built to establish a connection between the physical world and the spiritual one.

The TV show rates three and half stars with me. There could be more and better special effects, but the show is character driven.

Changes Should Improve Some Condition
If anything can be improved, it should be. That includes resumes, loglines, synopsises, webpage forwarding and your own personal life.

Changes, however, that makes a resume or logline, etc. worse should be quickly rejected. I've found that failed "experts" are the worse kind because they give advice that make an artist fail.

However, there was room for improvement in some areas and I'm going to check it out with knowledge dudes to see if they have positive suggestions that can really make these pieces of promotional writing sing.

I've changed the domain name, "www.davidbarron.biz" to forward to "My Fun Resume Page". No more does it forward to the one below.

It's hard to miss "David C. Barron's Top Ten Movies", because it's in the top ten Google search results for "David Barron".

Creative writers' resumes shouldn't be boring or mundane.
It should be entertaining and even a bit weird.

It's My Birthday Today
Mood:  lucky
I'm happy I was born. I'm happy that I'm married to my wife, Irene. We all have challenges that we have to face. For my wife, it's unemployment. For me, it's unfulfilled artistic(writing)ambitions.

There are others that are much worse off than us in the Greater Toronto Area. Some pay 75% of their wages for rent and they, also, have to go to the food bank to feed their kids. They need affordable housing that isn't there yet. So, when you go to church or pray to God, consider those that are less fortunate than yourself.

Crusade for what you believe in and leave the world a better place than you found it.

At the same time maintain a good sense of humor about yourself and others and always try to improve yourself.

If you want to know more about me, and where I'm coming from take a look at these websites:

The Loyal Order Of David Barrons
You probably know this by now, but I'm not the highest ranking "David Barron" in the top ten Google search list. I think I'm seventh on the list.

I'm also not the only David Barron who's in the movie business. There's also the "David Barron", who produced the "Harry Potter" films.

Do you remember Jerry Lewis, the rock and roll singer in the 50s? He added Lee to his name because he didn't want to be confused with Jerry Lewis, the comedian. I'm going to do something similar.

The David Barrons of world are in many diverse fields, but only one has the domain name www.barronblog.com. That's yours truly, David C. Barron. "C" stands for Charles or Chucky as in "Bride of Chucky."

Welcome to the top David Barrons on the internet:

David Barron of The Oxygengroup
David Barron, Sport's Guy

The Hotel California Mysteries
Mood:  spacey
So far, no one has penetrated the many mysteries of Hotel California. It's true, there are many red herrings in this story, but there is also much truth as well. It just isn't handed to you on a silver platter.

My own fascination with this subject has lead to "The Theme Park Websites of Hotel California". They are found at Mystery World, Area 53 World, The Indian Burial Grounds, Gehenna World, HC Vacation World Angel World Zen World, etc.

At Hotel California, death isn't the end. It's a new beginning.

In Memory Of Dagmar Romanowski
Mood:  sad
On Thursday, June 1st, we went to a memorial service in Arthur, Ontario for our dear friend, Dagmar Romanowski.

She died in Austria while visiting her daughter, Sandy Romanowski.

Dagmar was always a fun person to be with. She was talkative, but she also had a great sense of humor. Unfortunately, over the last few years, she suffered from different illnesses that impaired her quality of life.

As the minister said at the memorial, the "goodbye service" on earth is followed by a "hello service" in heaven: As one door closes, another opens.

Dagmar is survived by her husband, Hans and her daughers, Sandy and Jessica.

Dagmar Romanowski B-July/25/1950 D-May/16/2006



Wo du auch weilst, im Herzen bist du bei uns. Where you also stay, in the heart you are with us.

Life's Still A Struggle For Us
Mood:  hungry
My wife, Irene, is still looking for a steady job.
I'm still trying to sell my stories and we're both trying to pay down a large mortgage.

Basically, the "good old days" are still in the future for us. We look forward to paying off the mortgage and getting a few bucks ahead. Most of our friends have already done that.

I guess we're blessed in some ways because most people our age look back on "the good old days" in the past.

We feel our best days are yet to come.

There's no retreat or surrender. The only way, we're going down to defeat is when we quit and we're not going to do that. That sounds like the original "Rocky", eh?
