Miss me? [Jul. 25th, 2003|04:23 pm]

Yeah, another of my unexplained absences. I've been unable to talk about stuff going on in my life. I could have made things "Friends only," but for the most part, I prefer the all or nothing approach.

I have a feeling my inability to speak may change soon. If/when it does, you'll get a full update.

Anyways, I saw today's Friday Five, and I had to post on that one. And I know that when dragonpookie sees it, he will have to answer them too...

1. If your life were a movie, what would the title be? I think it would probably be Infidel. That's appropriate in a number of ways, I think.

2. What songs would be on the soundtrack? Oh, hell, what songs wouldn't be on the soundtrack? I've always said "If they made a movie of my life, it'd probably be boring as hell to watch, but the soundtrack would kick ass!" (or something to that effect...). Instead of buying a CD for my soundtrack, people would buy a 30GB iPod...

3. Would it be a live-action film or animated? Why? Traditional cel animation. That way the "so skinny you can see through him when he turns sideways" joke would actually be true. (Although, actually, I have a true story that demonstrates it's true in live-action as well...)

4. Casting: who would play you, members of your family, friends, etc? Hmmmm...
(Yes, I know most of these people are too old to play the appropriate parts. Just de-age them as necessary, or don't worry about it, since it's animation...)
Young Kurt: Haley Joel Osmont
Current age Kurt: Wil Wheaton
self: Edward Norton
technomonkey: Ben Stiller
Amy: Joey Lauren Adams
I think that's about all I should add, but if you want to know who you'd be played by, or have other specific requests, just add a comment at the end, and I'll respond.

5. Describe the movie preview/trailer. Screen starts black, dramatic music starts: Movie guy voice: "IN A WORLD..." Dramatic music comes screeching to a halt as I appear on screen. (All parenthetical comments cut to a different angle of me, ala Gollum in Two Towers) Kurt: "Yeah, the world's known as Earth, you may have heard of it...Look, my life's not big and dramatic enough for a trailer, let alone an entire movie. There's no great romance (romance a-plenty, but none of it's great...), no car chases (unless they include those couple of times in my junior year of high school), and nothing pops out of anyone's stomach (unless the movie goes all the way up to my sister giving birth...), but you know what? I still think you'll enjoy it. Why? Because I had fun living it, and I think that shows. Check it out. At the very least, it'll be good for a laugh or two, in that 'Thank God that isn't me' sort of way." Fade back to black. Big white letters: "Infidel. Coming this March." Kurt (VO): "March? Oh, crap. They really wanted to bury this sucker, didn't they?"

No kidding.

But, um, Wil Wheaton? What about this guy?

Aaron and I thought he WAS you in Deep Rising... :)

Oh yeah, what was I thinking?

He'd be perfect for live action. But, for animation, I think I'd still prefer Wil.

Re: Okay, I have to ask...

If you had to cast someone to play me, who would it be? Also I'm curious who you would cast for SeonSaint.

I guess that means I have to answer...

I'll be perfectly honest. I haven't spent enough time with you to really be able to have an opinion who should voice you in animation, or play you live-action...

As for seonsaint, I tend to think of him more as I knew him in high school. So, I'd say slap a blond wig on Josh Saviano, and you've got your man...Now, obviously, he's grown and changed since high school, but those are my strongest memories of him.

No problemo! Actually, it was kind of a relief. I was bracing myself who you would pick! Ha, ha!

As for SeonSaint, wait, Josh Saviano as in the Josh Saviano in "The Wonder Years"? The one who played Kevin Arnold's best friend? And I just clicked the link, and it is indeed the guy. Hm... let me picture this... :)

Re: I guess that means I have to answer...

Josh Saviano? I am seriously insulted by the notion! Charro could play me better than that idiot!

I'm pulling for Wil not to play you until you come up with something better. Until then I say Adult Kurt should be played by Billy and Little Dave should be done by Patty. Because they're roughly in the same likeness to being able to play you as Saviano is to playing me!

Haley Joel could probably play a young Matt Damon very well. You... not so much... although if you remember "AI"... the kid that picked on 'David' at the pool, that might work for ya...

Blond wig! Grrrr...
