If you live in or around New Jersey and you are interested in screen writing, Sam Hamm, author of Batman, Never Cry Wolf, Monkeybone, etc. will be speaking about the screen writing at Brookdale Community College's Student Center tomorrow night, Wednesday, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. It's free. Drop by and check it out if you've got the inclination.

I detect an "animal" theme in the screenplays of this so-called Mr. Hamm. I look forward to seeing him finally tackle the untapped hamster market.

Tapped hamsters being notoriously groggy.

Jeff, you should post it on Gothamlit newsgroup that I moderate.

In fact, I've posted it since I'm assuming you're at work today.

Marc: I told Sam about your revelation of all the animal related titles, and he said he'd never realized this before.

Ellen: Thanks so much for putting the info out on the Gothamlit.

Damn! Wish I could be there. I'd like to meet the guy who heckles Irvine so well.

Hey, that Jeff Ford turns out to be a hell of a nice guy. I know of at least a half-dozen so-called "film critics" who'll think twice before they buy another ticket for the Brookdale Artists & Writers Program (thanks, Slugger!)

Ellen -- thank you for the plug. We asked around afterward and it turned out that almost half of our (remaining) audience had found out about the lecture through Gothamlit. They were both very nice.

Oh, and Jeff -- when you see Marc, would you ask him why he omitted MANTIS from his exegesis? And tell him I'm hard at work on my script for the animated project HAMSTERLET, which is Shakespeare, only with conflicted rodents. (We're going after the Brian Jacques crowd.)

Fuckin' Irvine.

Alex: I'm with you. Sam needs some rough justice. A bare knuckle match in the Thunderdome.

In Sam's case, it should be "Ruff Justice."

John: Sam is wiley, but I've seen Young Irvine go ten with the Anole King without wilting. Irvine in 6 with a tko.

Here's another title for your animal theme series, Sam: Anole Rape.

You're welcome.

Yeah, Jeff , you might be right. But I think Irvine's got some academic papers up his sleeve that would reduce Sam to his knees. It'll be a battle.

No Anole King is going to have seen the Baudrillard I'll drop on Sam. I'm a baaaad man.

Don't forget, Sam's the reason they coined the phrase "Hamm-fisted."

See your Baudillard and raise you two Kristevas.

This is one Hamm that Irvine cannot slam.

"Consider yourself canned, Hamm!"
- Attributed to whoever

I wish I could think of some good Irvine puns, but they're all too topical to Orange County, CA. "I don't enjoy your Company, Irvine."

AND he's a sycophant. He named his son "Cal" so he could get a nice blurb from Gregory Benford.

For a guy who had product-placement deals lined up while Honey Baked and Spiral Sliced were still in utero, ol' Sammy sure is lippy about other folks' offspring.

When he feels the one-two sting of Deleuze and Guattari, he'll be sorry he ever flapped his gums.

Young Irvine,

Out of respect for J. Derrida, who just made the conceptual leap from deconstruction to decomposition, I am going to forgo the pleasure of doing the Sabre Dance on your methodologically-unsound kiester for a couple of days.

Once a decent interval has passed, look out.

Is decomposition the ultimate form of deconstruction? Our two combatants each have fifty words to respond...

When these two finally rumble, I'll be standing ring side with a big sign that reads:

From what I hear, anybody over the age of thirty falls into that category.

P.S. -- When you were at the printer's, did you happen to bump into Harlan?

That's a pre-bought knock down by Sammy. To be applied to whatever points he can ammass while wielding the ham fist during the real fight.
