It's time for the Friday Five!!!
1. If your life were a movie, what would the title be?
How to be a Weirdo Without Even Trying
OR... "Anything but a love story!" Actually I think it might be "Adventures of a Cartoonist."
2. What songs would be on the soundtrack?
Well, I'd first insist that John Williams or Jerry Goldsmith did the score though I really liked Randy Newmans stuff on Monsters Inc. Maybe that would be a better choice. My life isn't really epic enough I think for a JW score...though I REALLY liked his jazz on Catch Me If You Can. Not sure my life warrants a jazz soundtrack either.
If it had to have SONGS, I'd put on possibly "Crazy World," "It's Getting Better" and "Make Your Own Kind of Music." OH, and some stuff from the Pier Gynt suite. Just cuz' I LIKE it.
3. Would it be a live-action film or animated? Why?
I think I would do a combination. You see the real life stuff happening in Real Life, but whenever you go into a thought process or a bit of day dreaming (usually in class) then it would go animated.
4. Casting: who would play you, members of your family, friends, etc?
Well, I think maybe a really young Janine Garafalo. She does the weirdo pretty well...except I think I'm more funny than weird. Okay I AM weird, but I'm ALSO funny. I think anyway. She's definitely got the sarcasm down pat.
My mom would be Sally Field. She does the neurotic mom really well. Dad would be Harrison Ford or a younger Andy Griffith. wyckhurst would be Jennifer Garner. For fallenpegasus, for some odd reason I keep thinking John Cuzack. Weird.
I'll have to think on him and Brent and phoenix_jade a bit more.
Actually I think I would make xenologue Winona Ryder. Physically they've got a lot in common and Winona does `worried, soulful writer' really well.
5. Describe the movie preview/trailer.
Coming soon to a theater near you...
You see a hand drawing a horrible looking old woman.
"Jeanette!" you hear a voice call.
"Jeanette!" it calls again, more insistently.
"JEANETTE!!!" it roars.
You see an old hand enter the screen and grab the cartoon. The camera quickly pulls out to reveal ME sitting in a desk with a slightly scared face as the teacher...who is a spitting image of the cartoon looks at the cartoon.
Cut to me walking down the halls of the school, heading to the office.
Narration: Have to remember that trick the next time I want to get thrown out of math.
I don't know. I'll have to think about it a bit more.
