"I have recently completed a spec script, THE VIRGIN MISSILE CRISIS, a dramatic comedy about a sixteen-year old boy, the son of a high-ranking State Department intelligence official, who loses his virginity during the Cuban Missile Crisis. During the course of the film, the boy takes his first steps toward independence from his oppressively quirky family and faces the twin challenges of sex and nuclear annihilation. This script features strong, appealing roles for major actors and has real potential as both an independent or studio feature. I look forward to hearing from you about the script."

A fellow blog reader sent in this description of a TV series airing on Sahar TV in Iran. This scores on two points: One, the bizzaro factor. Two, pure propaganda. And for some reason, doesn't this sound like an episode of DARK ANGEL?

"The screenplay "ALL SCREWED UP" is designated for large groups of people who have been left out by the film industry. These people consists of: teenagers who are friends to the learning disabled as well as those that are leaning disabled, a teenager and parent who have wanted to go to the movies together but have had nothing to see, and adults who haven't lost the spirit of youth in them. "All Screwed Up" is the story of a seventeen year old woman Teenisha, who suffers from ADD who transfers into the body of Pete one of the most popular football players in her high school. Pete and Teenisha will learn more about true friendship, social climbing and themselves during this transformation then they have learned their entire life. I wanted to create this screenplay like me with a little rebel in it, just when you figured it out I add a little twist. There are more twists, turns and laughs in this ninety six page screenplay then the "Cyclone" at Coney Island but an ending that will leave the viewer fully satisfied."
"Eyna!" (South African for "Ouch!") is the comedic tale of a man, a manly-man, a sports-legend, national hero, nay a cricket god, who finds himself... pregnant? Ah, the fickle finger of fate and misguided storks."
I'm not sure why, but this is funny shit. I found it on a big press release website, meaning that someone is looking to capitalize on it.
Super Model Gisele Bundchen, Reneges on “Lost Dog” Reward Offer;
Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) December 10, 2004 -- Supermodel Gisele Bundchen’s “no questions asked” $5000.00 reward offer for her lost dog just before Thanksgiving, may have gotten her dog back, but, according to the young couple who responded to the offer and returned her seven year old Yorkshire terrier, Bundchen’s attitude now is “no questions answered”. Reminiscent of Bundchen’s former agency boss, John Casablanca's widely publicized description of Bundchen that she is “a monster of selfishness” and designer Roberto Cavalli’s claim that Bundchen “welshed" on a business deal with him, Janelle Olson (20) and Paul Douwenga (21) of San Bernardino County, California, (90 miles east of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Hollywood Hills Estate to which the dog was returned according to Los Angeles police), have had to retain an attorney to find out what happened to the “hefty” reward offer which Bundchen published when she was reportedly "depressed, devastated and frantic" over the disappearance of her seven year old Yorkshire terrier, Vida on November 17, which had no identifying information on its collar when found running in the public street.
“My friends and I found the dog running in the street where it was almost hit by a pickup truck” said Janelle, we picked it up and took it with us to keep it safe. As soon as she could get back to
"Even after they were cleared by police, Bundchen's people have wrongly maintained and implied Paul and Janelle deserved the humiliating treatment they received. " said the couples attorney, Frank Harrigan. “At this point, based upon everything we know, it appears Bundchen and others who conspired with her had no intention of paying the reward when they made the offer. For example, according to what the police told my clients, there was a video tape, apparently part of Dicaprio’s security system, of Janelle’s vehicle when her friends rescued Vida from the street. From the day the dog was missing the police may have known how to find Janelle and the dog, but they made no attempt contact her. Also, one press report initiated by Bundchen’s press operation, however, explicitly stated that Bundchen suspected “dognappers” in the disappearance of Vida. The “hefty” reward offer was a clearly trick, a ruse and a deception, from what we have read perhaps suggested by Ms. Hilton. Now that the police have verified Janelle and Paul acted innocently, Bundchen and her people still don’t want to honor the reward or even apologize to Paul and Janelle for what they went through, including a car chase in which someone apparently associated with Bundchen terrorized Janelle by chasing her car around the Hollywood Hills the day she learned of the reward. By going public the couple stated they hoped to begin to counter the false impressions created by the arrest, press reports and Bundchen's failure to honor her 'no questions asked" reward, according to the couple.
