Just A Friend

Guy Says: How long have we been talking now?
Girl Says: 6 hours
Guy Says: No...I mean wow... but I meant how long have we known each other?
Girl Says: a few months
Guy Says: feels like years
Girl Says: I know right? you're probably one of the few people let alone guys that I feel comfortable talking to
Guy Says: same Akward silence
Girl and Guy Says: So.....oh
Girl Says: You first
Guy Says: Ok, Lets say hypothetically speaking we were together and...
Girl Laughs
Guy Says: Why you laughing?
Girl Says: Haha I dunno, Me and you together just sounds weird, you're like a brother to me

Echoes ring through the guys head: "a brother to me"...."a brother to me"...."a brother to me"

I can think of only two more instances where a girl could tell a guy something that pretty much shatters his world. Its a hard pill to swallow and an even harder zone to get out of. The moment a girl brings the terminology "brother" or "friend" in a situation where a guy's trying to be with her, he has to concede defeat whether he wants to believe it or not.

Imagine an olympic stadium represents the girl's thoughts, the girl is a gold medal and the guy is a 400metre hurdler who has reached the final; he has "trained" all his life for this moment and now he's up for the prize against other worthy opponents (random dudes after her). The race begins and he's off, jumping hurdle after hurdle with consumate ease. He jumps over the nerves hurdle, jumps over the sense of humour hurdle, jumps over the ambition hurdle, then it gets a little tense and it hits between the 200 & 300metre mark. At this point it's his perserverance thats pushing him as he knows the last 100 metres beckons; he jumps over the likes and dislikes hurdles, jumps over the ex hurdles, clatters the "how many" hurdles but still manages to stay on his feet. He now reaches the final stretch, he's in the lead and is on the verge of claiming everything he's worked hard for. All of a sudden as he gets to the last few hurdles and there's a change in logistics, he's losing abit of breath, has he trained too hard? Now he's relying on just his adrenalin as his opponents are catching up. He's still in the lead and believes he can do it but the next hurdle has a different look to it, it seems jumpable from afar but as he gets closer there is something more solidified about this hurdle...ah yes, this is the friendship/brother hurdle. He skips across the track towards the hurdle and jumps but his front leg gets caught in the hurdle and he falls to the ground. Time moves in slow motion as he sees his opponents run and jump OVER the friendship/brother past him towards the finish line. He gets up but he knows it's too late, for as much as he is the crowd favourite he cannot claim the prize....pissed!



No guy I know likes when someone they're after hits them with the "like a friend/brother" tag. It's a mental and physical drain to a guy's system as he has spent quality time getting to know the girl and vice-versa; the mental gap has already been bridged and the physical was there from the get go so he's now feenin for her. What happens now?

As any guy would do they try to retrace their steps as to where it all went wrong. Was it when he told her his weaknesses? Did he play one too many of her favourite slow jams in the background? Was he procrastinating in asking her out? Did he play the good samaritan and spend maybe one minute/hour too long talking about her ex? Who knows!! What he does know is that he now has to sit there with the shattered memories of what could have been....for what awaits him could be more devastating than ever; her calling him to speak about OTHER guys and asking for advice. And like a good friend he is and has been to her he gives her the advice she needs to hear knowing fully well he should be that guy.

She thanks him and even coins the phrase I love you but he knows its a "friend" thing. All that's left to do now is cry like a little school girl.

There is no moral or solution to this story because frankly it can happen to the best of us but at least it answers the question on whether girls and guys can be friends....yes, yes they can, hahaha.

Are We Nosy?


So we've got social networking sites, reality TV shows, advanced google mapping and that girl who stares across the road when you're leaving your house making you that much more paranoid about what she's planning...no? maybe thats just me.

Either way the first three modes of "entertainment" have got me wondering whether there's a sudden burst of subtle voyeurism in the minds of it's users. You take Facebook for instance and disect what it's used for...the benefits are obvious, catching up with friends, networking, contacting people when you havent got minutes/credit (good times), sharing files etc but then what happens in between that? Fortunately for Mark Zuckerberg however and unfortunately for us Facebook can become addictive and you find yourself roaming for friends out of bordeom checking up on their photos, relationship statuses, eavesdropping on their conversations with a mutual friend or with a randomer, or your on the receiving end of an unwanted add/message from someone who's seen a photo of you in their school friend's twice removed cousin's facebook rave...you know the one where you're in a photo with your three friends holding a champagne glass in those new sharp megapixel cameras.... or maybe you're that person who adds them lol.

Social networks have kinda taken two directions. The first direction is the original purpose and the second is straight voyeurism/nosiness/"inner" behaviour. Its not our faults I guess, these mediums are just designed to make us be the receiver or the trigger of such behaviour. Take Twitter for another example, it is again great for networking, communication and promotion but from another perspective it's just an ever updating list of statuses about what everybody's up to...nosy!! I have fallen for the trap a couple of times since being on twitter but it's hard not to since thats all it is, you have to "follow" each other to make sense of it all so essentially it's a networking stalker starter kit. It's the closest you'll get to speaking to certain celebs/superstars so I guess thats ok....yep nothing more fun than making friends with famous people who dont talk back.

Then there's the reality TV shows which are beginning to wipe out original programming (still kinda pissed about Trouble TV getting locked off, re-runs or not). I used to wonder why there wasn't any innovative programmes on TV til I realised that viewers just dont watch it. No ad revenue for TV networks means bankruptcy and so they venture into the world of "reality" and make shows where viewers can participate. The public love eavesdropping, its what the word "public" is based on, trust me. As for the google map innovation, well it doesnt take a genius to know what that may lead to. All in all I cant help but think media mediums have helped illustrate a fact that we all have known at the back of our minds, we are nosy!!!

Mish-Mash #5

So for the first time in a while I get to chill on a sunday with no commitments whatsoever. I got my food set on continuous, my laptop for my notes and my sky remote firmly in my hand as I chill watching TV. I flick to Trouble and catch up with some sitcom re-runs only to hear the channel announce that on April 1st there'll be no more Trouble TV. What!?! Where am I gonna go to when Im bored? The one channel that allowed decent sitcom imports some airtime is getting replaced by more Living TV...booo! One on One Gone, Martin Gone, Girlfriends Gone, All Of Us Gone, Fresh Prince Gone, How I Met Your Mother Gone, My Wife & Kids Gone. Now I gotta watch size zeros screaming at my screen; I just wanna throw a cheeseburger at them.

If you havent seen ""Diary of A Tired Black Man" yet watch it, not for the acting but for the comments in between scenes. Hilarious. I finally got to watch it last night on DVD and it was interesting. quite thought provoking too, definitely an argument starter. I'll be raising a question from it as part of my debate week on my blog this week. Check the original youtube clip that got the director a movie deal by clicking here. Might watch the movie below too..



You wanna release an album with no hype then do it like Mos Def. Rather than get involved in some kinda beef track or try something innovative Def kept it simple and let his "words" do the talking. He joins an elite group of artists whose albums Im looking forward to this year including Eminem, Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West, Ginuwine, Chipmunk, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Teedra Moses even. Anyway check a preview for his album The Ecstatic This Spring





May 30th will be the first part to my new script for the blog. This one is likely to be done in advance so there's more chance of it actually being on time (maybe). So gear up, 8 weeks to go! Gonna start a whole new blog also with a couple friends soon called "Real Talk" so stay tuned for that one, controversial yet conditioned for the average reader..you'll see.

Swagger (Thought Of The Day)


Swagger: "A dashing or confident air or way of doing something"

Gonna keep this one relatively short since it's a topic that has been questioned, elaborated and overall done to death. I've seen a few blogs (Necole Bitchie, Butterz, etc) on how swagger is the most annoying term and topic in the world today and I find it hard to disagree. However in an industry where violence and hate is often the number 1 antidote for a hit tune or record I somewhat don't have a huge problem with swagger being introduced to an artist's forte. Warranted the tediousness derived from it's repetitive use in EVERY track is a common cause of frustration but you do have some sense of positivity in thinking "wow maybe they can diversify their content". Only problem is that the diversification just stops there and as lovers of music the public are now hung on the word too.



I see so many people obsessed with the word that it's created it's own culture but as much they may like the word it doesnt actually mean they have swagger. The definition in the dictionary is just the basics so dont think because you say you have swagger "confidently" that you can go around tarnishing it's name. Stay true to yourself and stop following fashion because swagger is somewhat a follow fashion phenomenon that has reversed the positive notion of standing out to now just fitting in. Swagger is like Sugar in a sense that too much of it is too bad for you. Where swagger was entertaining before it has unfortunately resurfaced as a virus spreading across the world and it wont stop until everyone is colour co-ordinating their eye colour with their belts. Like my swaggajacking friend (lol) Eileen said, the new "swagger" is just being yourself...being normal. and I'm as normal as they get haha *brushes shoulders off.

Friday Means Throwback!

Right now if someone was gonna ask me who have been the top female solo voices of R'n'B in my era the list in no order would include Faith Evans, Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott, Toni Braxton & Lauryn Hill, Brandy, Aaliyah, India Arie, Erykah Badu, Mariah Carey & Ledisi. (Yes there's no Beyonce, shock horror). I couldnt say who's the best because I'd be twiddling my thumbs for hours, days, weeks but what I will say is that out of all the above Mary J Blige has probably had in my opinion the most amount of stand out classic tracks (sorry Jill). She envokes alot of passion into her songs and you can feel it every time she performs, hear it in every album and see it in every video. I dunno what it is but "There's something about Mary".

Eric Benet - Chocolate Legs

Despite his mental illness (you gotta be crazy to cheat on Halle Berry) you cant deny he knows how to make good music. I will definitely be picking up his new album, the tune below is big.


Gone For A Minute Now Im Back Again

"It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you". Let me just quickly shake off this blog rust.........aight Lets Go!! Now technically this break in blogs and internet use was not my decision since my router decided to heat up and just reject my attempts at logging on but it's opened my eyes to how pervasive the net is; and it's kinda scary. I realised how much it is incorporated in our everyday routine; the average person I know will use the net 60 hours a week which I guess isnt too bad when you consider the 168 hours in a week. HOWEVER, ask yourselves how many of those hours are spent doing something productive?

I imagine it's the same..ish scenario for you....You switch on your PC or Laptop, get frustrated for a moment having to wait for all your programs and downloads to load up, your screen is filled with so many folders and software that you can barely see your background image, you click on Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer or Safari and your on. You get the tabs ready for multiple windows and your life begins..or ends. First it's the Email (hotmail, yahoo, gmail etc) then the social networking sites (facebook, twitter, myspace) maybe a couple of blogs (Perez Hilton, YBF, Bossip......Pbleepd Blog, The Wider Perspective..ahem) and then your preferences (Sky Sports, Asos, The Times etc). Or with alot of people these days it's straight to facebook..Haha You know Im right! It's a continuous cycle and under my frustrations of not being able to come online I was quietly happy to be away at the same time.

When one technological habit fails (the internet) another one begins (TV) and so I spent a week in front of my Sky Box watching sitcoms, dramas, sports, documentaries and the news. Random questions: Why have Channel U changed their name to Channel AKA? Where's Trouble + 1? Why do BET have no UK programmes? Who the hell are all these new people on Eastenders? (I havent seen it since Grant left again) Why does everyone love Hollyoaks? it has the worse acting ever. Why does Paris Hilton UK TV deals before me? Why are Fox News allowed to broadcast politics when they are clearly against Obama?......

Under those TV frustrations I found pleasure in watching some random programmes. I remember Ondo Lady blogging a while back about some show called Stylista; and while Im not into fashion/modelling reality shows it's actually a decent show (I can watch it and still retain my masculinity right?) Soccer AM is still the best morning show created (pssh Live and Kicking). 24 destroys anything else on TV and Top Gear is the shining light in the darkness that is Emmerdale. But above all of this I was glad to see Angie Le Mar's "The Brothers" stage show on MTV Base last night; warranted the change from Richard Blackwood to Harvey was weird but its good to see something creative and different on TV as well as a modern show with a predominantly black cast. The acting was abit "meh" in parts but the plot seems good enough. Lets hope it opens doors to more possibilities because there is a big hole in the TV World that needs to be filled.

Anyway briefly back to the initial topic, put down the mouse or take your fingers off the touchpad and pick up another habit. Take some time off the net and do something else....anything, you'll be surprised to find how much we're consumed by it.

V.I.P MJ Tickets

Michael Jackson tickets were sold out quickly!! but if anyone's willing to buy a V.I.P ticket for any of the tour dates this summer at the O2 Arena which includes a backstage pass, food and what not than I have a link to one available.

Anyone want this ticket or of if you know someone who does then let me know. Email: preacher2@hotmail.com

Its Hard To Get Why We Still Play Hard To Get


"Life is a game, I just play it to play it" - Jay-Z

Contradictory behaviour never ceases to amaze me when it comes to us and our behaviours. In the very same aspects of life where games are considered negative (love, relationship) we continue to play those very same games in an attempt to get or get the better of one another....fuuny. Im gonna try very briefly to understand the "hard to get" theory via the female contingent. The 21st century has unleashed the most docile yet independent species on the planet...women! Women generally know what and who they want and can usually have which they want sometimes when they want; but the concern turns to "How" they want it.

This post far from refers to all women, generalising would be boring...and untrue of course, but a substantial amount of women are flip-siding the definition of dolicty which in result causes them to "play" hard to get. But why? Well the initial why is easy. Some women dont want to come across easy, they dont want the man to lose interest after he gets them, they want to know how interested the guy is and whether he is willing to work hard for her. I get that part and they're all good reasons but isnt using the "hard to get" method to acquire such knowledge playing games? and we know how women "hate" games.

I was under the impression that games and love dont mix, and while that stage of the relationship isnt love it is initially a platform for love which is supposed to be a no game zone. Some men love the chase no question (I do on occasion) but some of us dont (I dont on many the occasion) and when games are introduced a women has turned (effectively on purpose) a yes or no situation into a variety of thoughts from the male perspective. He is now wondering not only whether he should continue or not but whether the woman is gonna leave him chopped and skrewed, whether the she is worthy of a relationship or a Hit & Run, etc etc. While women see this is as a test to seperate the men from the boys they are failing to recognise that after a man has proclaimed his interest in a woman and laid the cards on the table he has delivered an ultimatum, games should rarely be played at this point. Playing games can easily result in the Boomerang theory (watch the movie).

Hard to get should be at most a natural trait and not a tested theory. Say What's Real: If you aren't sure whether you wanna give a guy your number because of previous troubles or you aint feeling him, just say it! dont encourage hope. Dont cancel dates just to see if he'll crack, tell him you need to trust him first. It aint that hard is it? That being said "hard to get" does create a fun challenge when both are aware and willing to partake in such activity. But when they aint, its time consuming and only begs the question whether relationships are founded on trust, love and GAMES!

"Face"book Drama

"Mehhh I hate the new home page?" "Waaah what happened to my old facebook?" "Argh! why do they keep changing it?" I've been hearing these statements all day in a failed attempt by friends to cheer me up through conversation (ARGH MAN UTD!!). Seems as though everyone hates the new face of facebook and it's kinda funny because no matter how much y'all complain about it you will STILL go on it everyday and it will NEVER change. Just embrace the annoyance yet benefit that is facebook and expect the unexpected because unfortunately for multi-million to billion dollar businesses they mistake growth for change and dont understand the term "if it aint broke dont fix it". Im 4 months into my facebook hiatus but have decided to make a comeback in the near future when business is running...maybe. I say maybe because it's such a potent and popular site but man it's annoying as Julian Smith has pointed out below.



I Think It Would Be Fair To Say Im "Pbleepd"

It's a double entendre but Im definitely not refering to the company Im co-running; believe Im literally Pissed!! Constant superlatives have been coming out my mouth for the last 2 hours. Im just gonna give myself time to vent frustrations because I just witnessed an absolute shambles. The scoreline:

MANCHESTER UNITED 1 - 4 LIVERPOOL

WHAT!?!?! Im a passionate football fan and when I see my team perform in such a shambolic way I dont know whether to break something or beat someone, but they both seem pretty reasonable right now. Argh!!! Shout out to Elijah, Ikes and Mas who have doubled my anger in the last hour or so by letting me know how they feel about today's result. It's probably one of the worst feelings in the world to have someone who is always reliable to mess up on such an important occasion, Nemandja Vidic (in the pic) is that reliable person who shegged today. I cant stay mad at him but it's gonna take a while for me to forgive a performance which rivals George Bush's presidency and London Transport...utter s***!

Thats my mood done for the day. Im off to listen to Speedy's Comedy Corner & The Foxxhole to cheer myself up. They say you should never go to sleep angry but I always watch Match of the Day so mark Saturday 14th March as my first negative day in 2009. Im so pissed!!

Friday Means Throwback

In order to be the best in Hip-Hop some say you have to have a high pedigree in these fields : Flow, Lyrical ability, freestyle ability, versatility and content. There are a few yet substantial amount of rappers who have applied to the fields successfully regardless of record sales (I'll be posting a blog about it next week) but being a fan of content alone I still believe there was/is none greater than 2Pac. Some....well many may argue that he doesnt necessarily excel in all categories but like I said Im a man of content and when it comes to that I cant think of any better. There's a long list of 2Pac videos but Im gonna put up a tune that is rumoured to have been ghost produced by J Dilla. I will indeed get slack from a couple people for my "opinion" but it's my blog and I run this, ya hear? (Hip-Hop debate blog next week, stay tuned)

Jay-Z's Lyrics

Undoubtedly one of the best (maybe thee best) lyricists to ever touch a mic, Jay-Z has been a man on a mission ever since he first broke on to the scene commercially with the album Reasonable Doubt. Now an entrepreneur, Sean Carter's growth + maturity = experience has given him awareness and wisdom and he is now able to translate that learnt knowledge into great lyrics off the mic too.

While browsing BET's website I came across Lowkey's blog; he had a post on Jay-Z's feature in American magazine BEST LIFE. It strayed away from Hip-Hop for a second and focused on the man himself, I was inspired and equally respectful of his "6 Principles To Living The Best Life". Not that I needed the encouragement to think positive but I will definitely use them as a constant reminder for me to carry on what Im doing. These are essentially principles and guides that every single person should use especially in this current climate. What do you think?...

Sean Carter's 6 Principles To Living The Best Life


1. Be Your Own Biggest Fan…


“Believe in whatever it is you’re doing. If you don’t believe it, no one else will.”


2. Take Control, Then Let It Go…


“Work really hard and apply yourself in a way that when the job is done, you can look in the mirror and say, ‘I’ve exhausted all possibilities. I’ve done everything to make this right’. After that, let it go: It’s out of your control.”


3. Focus On The Process, Not The Result…..


“People get consumed by the trappings of success. They forget the reason they wanted to do what they wanted to do in the first place. Whether you have zero money or a million dollars, it doesn’t change who you are. Keep yourself inspired.”


4. Never Act On Your Fears…


“Card players have a saying: ‘Play the cards, not the money’. If your hand is good, it doesn’t matter if there’s $2 on the table or $2,000. You determine your outcome. Don’t make decisions based on the fear. People can be jealous of you and bait you, but you can be mature and handle the situation.”


5. Use Money The Right Way
...


“For some people money can be a burden and lead to bad decisions. But money should make you comfortable so that you don’t have to compromise yourself or do anything just for money. It should give you the freedom to do what you love.”


6.Don’t Stop Growing…..


“Growth doesn’t stop when you’ve become successful. That’s when it starts.”


Well said Sean....well said

"Needs are great, but your possibilities are greater"

Poetry Throwback

Did this right at the beginning of 2007 when I came back from my holiday in Ghana. I think I was inspired by the "stares" from certain people because me and my family were in first class boarding. It all just got me thinking about racism and hating, sad story. First and only time I was close to doing a Chris Brown (sorry had to use him as a verb at least once) on some lady. I accidentally tripped her afterwards at Heathrow Airport....accidentally.

The Plight Of A Black Man

The Innocence bestowed in a newborn is overshadowed by the guilty pleads of it's emerging haters,
The child of colour is ironically simplified as a figure of darkness by a few the day it is born,
Not their fault, they are catapaulted into a world where obstacles are made harder because of the colour of their skin,
The joy and equality evident in the primary and junior years become secondary in secondary...school that is

For the elements of teenagehood and education become intertwined in a sea of choices,
Academics become only a fragment of education as the observations of the "streets" become the major learning experience,
Libraries deemed kryptonite to his kind on the news, so which path should he choose?
Influenced by vision he is at a stage where peer pressure is the percentage winner

Will he aspire for a salary figure that has five 0's or will he turn to a war battling daily with 5 . 0?
Doesn't matter what trail he goes, he'll find it hard to gain support from his own,
For the screwfaces await him, no subject reason, just the narrow-mind of the human being.
Unfortunately for him he will always be judged, from the hoodies to the suit, haters cant get enough

It seems like danger follows wherever he goes, the devil tryna take what's rightfully the lord's child,
Parties barely safe, for the pops aren't from a bottle of champagne, no my friend that isn't red wine....
Nevertheless his instincts and beliefs manufacture his journey in life,
Good friends and abiding family the driving force behind his forward movement

The Plight of the Black Man is blatantly evident, The Success of a Black Man is what's relevant

Keri Nice

Now Im not saying I love her or anything but Keri Hilson is DEFINITELY doing it for me right now. She's got that www.girlnextdoor.com/sexyashell thing about her with the writing talent to boot thats capturing my eye. She's not in my Top 10 just yet (which has had some readjustment in the last couple months) but she aint far off it. She's definitely marketable and has good songwriting credits with The Clutch, hopefully her solo career kicks off when her album drops. Here's a teaser of her new vid featuring Kanye (Last time you get to see his mullet, I can live with that).

Scriptwriter Chronicles: MEN ON THE ROAD (Part 25)

Part 25 - Til' Death Do Us Part

Jane sits in the hospital room, tears rolling down her slightly bruised face, her scratched hands form a headrest as she looks out the window. She turns around to have another look at Julian on the hospital bed. He has a host of bruises and bandaging as well as tubing on his body. He has been staring at her for the last few minutes after regaining consciousness...

Jane
You're awake?

Julian
Been awake for a long time, just trying to, you know, muster everything I heard before the crash Silence

Jane
Listen......she sighs

Julian
Where is everyone?

Jane
That's totally another story in itself

Julian
Where's my sister?

Jane
She's in another room with Gerald, Listen I...Julian interrupts

Julian
Gerald, is he alright? I remember us laying upside down in the car....

2 Hours Earlier.....David's car screams to a halt as other cars pile up in front of him. Nadine and Ritchie rush towards Julian's car with David not far behind. There are already bystanders in their droves looking on, the motorwat is at a halt. They look into the car and see that Julian, Gerald and Sebastian are all unconscious....

Nadine
Oh My God!! there's blood everywhere

Ritchie
Alright don't panic let's just get them out of here. Nadine try and open the door David goes round the other side to try and pull Gerald out, Nadine opens the door on the driver's side. Ritchie stares mencingly at Sebastian in the backseat who begins to gain consciousness, he proceeds to pull out Julian slowly It's ok Jules, it's Ritchie we're gonna get you outta here Nadine is in tears Ok here we go. You got Gerald David?

David
Yeah David pulls Gerald clear of the car while Ritchie pulls Julian someone call the Ambulance, Nadine

Nadine
One of the bystanders did it

Ritchie
Well call again!!

Nadine
What about Sebastian? Ritchie looks over at the car

Ritchie
What about him? Nadine cant believe her ears. Two bystanders pull Sebastian out the car as Nadine calls the ambulance. Wake up Julian, come on. Ritchie takes off his top to apply pressure to the blood. Sebastian meanwhile hobbles over to them suffering minor injuries.

Sebastian
Are they ok?

Nadine
I dont know, the ambulance are on their way. What happened? Sebastian ignores the question

Sebastian
How's Julian doing Ritchie? Ritchie ignores him Ritchie!? Im talking to you!! Ritchie gets up and punches Sebastian square in the nose, he begins to bleed

Ritchie
What gives you the f***** right to ask any questions ay?

Nadine
Ritchie! Nadine takes tissue out of her bag for Sebastian

Sebastian
What the f***!! Are you crazy! what the hell you playing at?

Ritchie
I cant find the right words for you now but once we get these into the hospital, believe you're gonna have to deal with me. He continues to apply pressure to Julian's side. David shakes his head at Sebastian

Back to present....Julian holds his side. Jane attempts to tend to him but he gently pulls her hand away. She turns away which is when Julian notices her bruises and scratches

Jane
I just wanted to help

Julian
Too late for that, I've heard what I needed to hear

Jane
What happened before the crash?

Julian
What happened to your head?....What happened to your face?

Jane
Let's just say you wasnt the only one involved in a crash collision

Just under 2 hours earlier....The women stand in different parts of the room shocked, confused and irate

Evelyn
No No No...what!?

Jane
It's the truth. I've been sleep with Sebastian Kim breathes heavily as Natalie and Michelle exchange contrasting looks

Evelyn
But I though Julian was cheating on you

Jane

Evelyn
Yeah Joshua saw him dropping these reveals condoms as he went to his car

Kim
Those are mine! Kim snatches the condoms So he was gonna use them with you!?!

Evelyn
Huh? Wait what colour is Sebastian's car?

Kim
Red Evelyn begins to process her conversation with Joshua

Evelyn
Oh My God it makes sense. Jane you are...

Michelle
A F***** slut!! All this time you lead to me believe my brother was in the wrong when you've been spreading your legs for this cunt all along. Bitch!! Michelle tackles Jane to the ground and they exchange brutal slaps and punches. Natalie pulls Michelle off causing Kim to intervene. Kim pulls Natalie back allowing Michelle to take a swipe at Jane's hand. Natalie throws Kim to the ground and pulls Michelle off. The two stand side by side.

Kim
Why are you defending her?

Natalie
She's still my friend

Michelle
Bullshit you knew!!

Kim
You knew?

Natalie
How was I supposed to know he was seeing you?

Jane
Exactly he didnt mention it once!!!

Kim
I dont even wanna hear your voice right now Jane so if you know what's best for you you'll shut up

Michelle
So you think him not mentioning anything justifies your actions!?!? silence Yeah didnt think so. Im so angry right now, you made a prick of me, Evelyn and my brother

Kim
How long have you two been doing this for?

Jane
Oh so I should speak

Kim
I deserve to know this and dont get smart with me

Jane
...6 Months. Michelle looks disgusted I dont expect you to understand...but we loved each other

Evelyn
Oh My God Kim fumes

Michelle
What the hell do you know about love? You commit to marriage and move on for a fling as a result of love? You are a certified slut!

Kim
Where's my purse? Kim storms around looking for her purse, she takes a detour to the kitchen

Michelle
Why am I not on the other side of the room smashing your face in?

Jane
F*** you Michelle you don't know the issues me and him were through

Michelle
Oh please shut your dirty mouth. Issues my ass! You are a slut, a whore, a tart everything under the sun and when Jules gets back I hope he knows how to deal with you

Kim bursts through the kitchen door welding a knife. Michelle picks up a vodka bottle

Evelyn
Whoa! Whoa!

Kim
You wanna sleep with my man? Then pay the consequences. Jane backpedals and falls back into the sofa. Natalie puts her hands out and uges them to stop. Michelle chucks the bottle at Natalie but misses, and it smashes against the wall. Kim walks towards Jane but Evelyn stands in her way

Evelyn
Its not worth it Kim, put the knife down please Evelyn's phone rings, she picks up still attempting to block Kim. David now is not the right time...I'll call yo....an accident?

Back to present....Julian is still holding his side his breathing patterns are a little slower. He laughs a little...

Julian
So Evelyn thought I was cheating? that's funny

Jane
...yeah, I guess

Julian
Kim sounds really passionate. Willing to do anything for her partner Jane's guilt is clearly shown Oww Oww Oww Julian holds his side once more

An hour and a half earlier....Gerald and Julian lay on strecther beds in the hospital van. Sebastian has been treated for his minor injuries. The Police and Fire Brigade are present also..

Medic
You guys getting on?

Ritchie
No just me

Nadine
I wanna be on too

Ritchie
You dont even know us

Nadine
I dont wanna be anywhere near Sebastian

Sebastian
Im sick and tired of this bullshit. I have every right to be on that van too. I dont give a shit what you two think

Medic
Listen we need to get to the hospital now so either everyone get on or everyone get off; your friends need to be treated


David
Sebastian just come with me to the hospital

Policeman
Lady and Gents we'll be coming to the hospital to question you all shortly

Ritchie and Nadine get in the van while Sebastian gets in the car with David. Meanwhile Cameron receives a knock on the door. He opens the door to see Kim, Evelyn and Michelle...

Kim
We need to go to the hospital

Across the road Jane and Natalie go into Natalie's car...

Jane
I'm scared

Natalie
You knew what you were getting into...

Jane
No, No I didnt. I don't know Sebastian was seeing Kim, I didn't know Julian would be in an accident, a robbery or any of this. This is a mess. I hope he's alright.

Natalie
He'll be fine, Julian's strong

Jane
yeah...why do I feel like I made a mistake?

Natalie
Maybe you did. I mean Sebastian loves you but how can you trust him if he's able to cheat on Kim?

Jane
Turn the car around....

Natalie
What?

Jane
I want my wedding rings They turn around and drive past Cameron's car

Evelyn
Where are they going?

Michelle
Who gives a f***?

Evelyn
Michelle language

Joshua
It's ok I've heard worse from my brother Cameron and Kim are whispering to each other in the front seats

Cameron
They got arrested

Kim
Shit! What does that mean?

Cameron
Well Im gathering they are gonna get done for it, we just have to pray they dont snitch on the three of us. You gonna be alright though? today must of felt like a kick in the teeth!

Kim
You dont know the half of it. I didnt even get to slap the bitch. But you just wait what I do to her and that prick when we get to the hospital

Cameron
Just make sure you stay calm. The three of us dont need too much attention right now.

Back to present..

Julian
Why so quiet now?

Jane
I'm thinking; the doctor says you need to rest

Julian
It's not easy to rest witnessing what's going on around me

Jane
You didnt see anything Jules you were unconscious

Julian
Then tell me everything, I know there's more...

Just over an hour earlier...Julian and Gerald are pushed through the hospital by medics and doctors. Nadine, Ritchie, Sebastian and David are advised to stay in reception until further notice. There is major tension as they wait. Ritchie clicks his knuckles while Sebastian stares at him.

Sebastian
You have a problem Ritchie?

Ritchie
I dont think me having a problem has ever been in doubt, what you wanna ask me is "What is your problem Ritchie?" so ask again....

Sebastian
So Im guessing Nadine told you

Nadine
Told him what? David was actually the one to find out, I just confirmed it

David
It made sense in the end Seb, but this should be the least of our worries, you have two friends who are in vital conditions, sort out your beef later

Sebastian
You're right David but if I've learnt anything today its that things shouldnt be left unsaid til the last minute or you get bad results

Ritchie
No sleeping with someone you''re not supposed to leads to bad results. e.g a bloody nose

Sebastian
Dont be proud of your sucker punches Ritchie. It wont happen again. Ritchie squares up to Sebastian. Why dont you get over it? You were never gonna have her

David & Nadine
Huh?

Sebastian
She didnt ever want you, its just unfortunate she ended up sleeping with me

Ritchie
What the hell are you talking about? I didnt want Jane

Sebastian
Jane? Im talking about Nadine Nadine turns away

David
What the hell? Kim and Cameron walk in

Ritchie
You slept with Nadine too!!?!

Kim
Whaaaat?

Sebastian
Kim

Kim
Dont even call my name!! the receptionist is startled

Cameron
Kim, calm it down

Kim
No!! he slept with Jane AND my sister!! Evelyn, Michelle and Joshua walk in

Evelyn
You have got to be joking. Michelle storms towards Sebastian and slaps him hard across the face

Michelle
Bastard! Where's my brother and Gerald!?! Michelle walks over to the receptionist. The receptionist explains the situation until Michelle cant take no more. She storms off looking for one of their rooms. The receptionist follows after her.

Kim
Ok let me get this straight

Nadine
Kim wait

Kim
What is it with everyone interrupting each other when they wanna finish a sentence? Shut up and let me speak. Now laughs you points at Sebastian lied to me, stole from me and cheated on me with the wife of your friend laughs And then! to top it off you sleep with my sister Correct?

Sebastian
You dont need to do this

Kim
Correct!?

Sebastian
...yeah

Kim
So we were in a 9 month relationship and you were with Jane for 6 months? Ok Ok, so how long have you been seeing my sister?

Sebastian
I was never seeing your sister

Kim
Oh right. That makes it better, you just sleep with her

Nadine
It was one time and I regret it

Kim
When?.......WHEN!!?

Nadine
Today

Ritchie
What!?!

David
What!?!

Evelyn
Oh My god

Kim
Today?

Sebastian
It was an accident, I wasnt in the right frame of mind

Kim
Spare me please Seb, it's pathetic, just..just shut up. You're a cunt and you Nadine, much like Jane you are a slut

Nadine
Dont call me a slut

Kim
or what Nadine?

Sebastian
Thats enough. You're making a scene

Nurse
Excuse me if you guys continue we're going to have to ask you to leave Jane and Natalie walk in

Sebastian
Jane

Jane
Where's my husband? she looks over at everyone ...where is he!?! the nurse goes over to reception to call security

Nadine
Dont play the victim Kim, because it was you who nearly got Julian killed

Jane
What did you just say?

Cameron
Nadine shut up. To Jane she doesnt know what she's talking about

Nadine
Cameron give it up. Kim called Cameron's friends to kidnap Sebastian and rough him up but it was a case of mistaken identity and they got Julian

Jane
How do you know this?

David, Ritchie, Evelyn & Natalie
Yeah!!

Nadine
Because I know them too

Ritchie
You knew and you watched them just take him?

Jane pounces on Nadine and slaps her. Kim slaps Jane and Jane grabs a piece of Kim's hair and rams her knee into her stomach. Natalie gets involved and once again there's a melee in the middle of the hospital. David, Sebastian, Ritchie and Cameron break it up.

Jane
My husband could have been killed!!

Kim
Dont act like you care, you've been cheating for 6 months!!

Sebastian
You tried to kill me Kim?

Cameron
No she wanted you roughed up a bit, well deserved I say

Kim
No I wanted you shot in the end, I just knew my intuitions were right she spits out some blood

Sebastian
You are sick!

Jane
When I get my hands on you, you are dead! both of you!!

David
Cameron what kind of friends do you have? You let this happen to your own neighbours?

Cameron
I never knew

David
I cant believe Im hearing this

Nurse
Right thats it, all of you have to leave. Security come walking in, Kim smirks

Sebastian
Im gonna have you arrested, you're a mess security attempt to escort everyone

Jane
Let go of me she shrugs off Cameron and pushes security Where is my husband!?!


Security
Miss would you please follow me to the exit?

Jane
piss off!
Another melee erupts involving the group and security, slapping, kicking, pushing and shoving commence. The nurses call the police as doctors come through to try and help. Kim reaches into her purse and pulls out a gun

Kim
I'm not one for games, I am so not one for games!! she points her gun at everyone, they move back. The option is endless, I can kill each and everyone of you for different reasons. From the cheating scum to the slut and her best friend to my so called sister she cries. Sebastian, answer me this, truthfully, do you love me? silence well?

Security man
Say yes fool!!

Sebastian
Yes

Joshua
He's lying!!

David
Joshua step back

Kim
Let him speak! go on!

Joshua
I saw him go into Jane's house today and they were kissing like they were together. The same thing happened with my mum and now she's gone, thats not love
Sebastian's heart beats fast

Kim
This just keeps getting better and better, you just cant stop lying can you Sebastian? Tell me who you love and mean it and I'll put the gun down Jane, Natalie and Evelyn begin to cry.

Security Man
Dont fall for it Kim shoots him in the leg, everyone jumps in shock! Sirens are heard in the background

Kim
Shut up! Tell me!

Sebastian
....I love Jane alright.

Everyone flinches expecting the worse only for Kim to break down and cry. Ritchie walks away looking for Gerald or Julian's room, he shakes his head. At this point police swarm in warranting the arrest of Kim and Cameron. Everyone's at a standstill, Kim gives herself up and they are handcuffed and taken away; Evelyn and David plead with the police to no avail and the tears of Joshua and Nadine. The group follow them out the hospital while Jane cries in Natalie's arms. Security allow the two women and Sebastian to stay while police question the others. The doctor treating Gerald and Julian approaches them.

Doctor
Good news is that Gerald is stable, I believe your sister in law is with him. Julian is still in critical condition but for now he is doing alright. He needs rest.

Jane
I need to see him, I want to see him

Doctor
very well

Jane walks off with the doctor. Natalie and Sebastian sit in the waiting room opposite each other. No words spoken. The police come into question them.

Back to present...

Jane
And uh, thats what happened up until now...

Julian
Eastenders havent got nothing on this. I dont know who to hate more; Sebastian, Kim, Nadine, Evelyn, Cameron, Natalie...or you. Jane drops her head, Ritchie walks past the door and seeS Jane talking to Julian, he decides to leave them and goes to where Gerald is resting Do you love him?

Jane
No

Julian
Let me rephrase my question holds his side once more before you found out he had someone else did you love him?.........yeah

Jane
It was a sign to let me know what I was giving up

Julian
But you wouldnt of thought the same thing if it didnt happen

Jane
But it did

Julian
But what if it didnt?

Jane
But it did! Julian please. I do love you. Thats what these rings signify she pulls out their wedding rings from her pokcet Remember these?

Julian
Yeah I remember, I paid for 'em

Jane
We've said or done things we didnt mean and I want to start over

Julian
Its not as simple as that. he speaks slower to ease the pain You were.....willing to......willing to...holds his side break a marriage and a family...for a wild affair....for your own personal gain.....It's something that I cant forgive....or forget overnight

Jane
I understand that, but I need you, and I miss you, I miss us, the way we were

Julian
Yeah right, kinda like that text you sent, I gathered it wasnt for me in the end Jane puts her ring on her finger

Jane
Take this ring tries to put the ring in his hand

Julian
I dont want to

Jane (desperately)
please?

Julian
I cant

Jane
Julian just take the ring she cries harder and Julian takes the ring, his heart feeling weaker Thank you. Do you need the doctor?

Julian
Nope, everything is eaxctly how it's supposed to be. For the first time in this "relationship" Jane sinks in her chair I've been humbled....maybe it took you to cheat...for me to understand....I've learnt my lesson

Jane
Dont say that, I was a fool and I dont wanna ever lose you. The most important thing is that we stay together for the sake of us and our children Julian squints his eyes, he's silent for a moment and looks around the room, then speaks...

Julian
Could you go and get me the doctor please?

Jane
Push that button

Julian
It doesnt work, I tried a second ago. Ask specifically for Dr Kcabyap

Jane
strange name she gets up

Julian (mumbles so she cant hear)
You should hear it spelt backwards


Jane walks towards the door, Julian begins pulling vital tubes out of his body, his heart beat fading faster, Jane sees what he's doing in the reflection and turns around. Julian pulls out tube after tube and grimaces in pain. Before she can get to him his heart rate is too low, his head falls back and his arms swings down, his wedding ring falling to the ground. Jane presses the button to call doctors in. They come rushing in and try to bring Julian back to life. Gerald, Michelle and Ritchie come running in. Screams and loud cries fill the room as doctor's continue in an effort to bring him back. Natalie and Sebastian rush in, Jane is sitting in a chair rocking back and forth. Julian's eyes remain closed.

Too Little, Too Late.....

NEW SCRIPT TO COME IN MAY......


Sunday, March 8, 2009

Script Q&Answers Part 2

11. Will you write any other scripts for the blog?

Broadband: Yeah most definitely, I had plans to do so from January but decided to wait until I finished this one. It'll be different but with the same entertainment, I'll probably start it in May.
12. The dialogue is very true to life, do you take mental notes of dialogue between your friends to help fuel the character interaction

Broadband: I do take notes but on dialogue in general, I think sometimes writers are so focused on their work being fictional that they tend not to use the "little" things that make up conversation. Its not always about amazing one-liners and drama-ridden conversations that make it enjoyable. It's also the general banter between friends and the "uhm" and "erm" and "I see" and any other short pieces of dialogue. They are important parts of conversations because they give you a level of understanding of how a character works and it is definitely something a reader/viewer can relate to.

13. Which character do you relate to the most? which is your favourite and why?

Broadband: Maybe Julian due to his strong will and sarcasm but he still has alot to learn, that could sum up one side of me. I think he's my favourite character because his conversations with various characters aren't one dimensional, he clashes with Gerald and Ritchie which in turn creates entertaining dialogue.

14. If you did develop the script into a movie/tv show, who would you like to play the characters?

Broadband: If it becomes a youtube series i'd get friends (who can act) and actors to do the parts. I'll leave it up to the readers to decide what they think everyone should look like. Im guessing from comments that so far Sebastian is the easiest one to describe.

15. If it were a movie or TV show what would you call it?

Broadband: It used to be called MEN ON THE ROAD but because I was writing from pure energy it took different directions so I'd have to change the name. Each part has it's own message or mini-episode so it would be difficult to name it. Hmm...that's a tough one, I'll get back to you on that. In fact what do you guys think? (responsibility officially diverted)

16. How old are the characters?

Broadband: Josh (8) Nadine and Cameron (21) are the youngest while David (40) is the oldest. The rest of the characters range between mid (Jane, Kim, Natalie Sebastian, Gerald) and late (Julian, Michelle, Ritchie, Evelyn) 20s.

17. How do you focus when writing a script, do you need silence, music, female distraction? what allows you to get into the zone?

Broadband: Highlarious! Unless I know exactly what Im doing I usually start off writing in silence (warranted the TV is on in the background and everyone is hitting me up on MSN), when Im pretty much in the zone I slip on some music. Food gives me a lot of energy to write too (just thought I'd add that in there. But generally if I have a good idea I can write with or without anything.

18. Tell me more about Sebastian's character, does he love any of these woman he's manipulating?

Broadband: Sebastian's character literally came out of nowhere (like most of these characters) I just started writing his character into the script and it all began to click and make sense. As much as there is a huge amount of dissappointing human beings in the world (adeptly named wasteman and/or clowns) everyone has some sense of "good" in them; that being said even though he did what he did to his close friend and his girlfriend he did do it out of love. There's no excuse really but I can say does he actually love Jane. Love will make you do crazy things depending on your character.

19. At the beginning you briefly accounted for the reasons Julian and Jane were having troubles. Early commitment...fire burnt out, poor stamina in love making lol At the moment I cant point the blame to either party because I do not know when the affair between Jane and Seb started. How long had Jane been cheating for?

Broadband: lol Jane has been cheating for 6 months which is 3 months after Sebastian started his relationship with Kim. Natalie picked up on it earlier when she had to pretend to be the one who was seeing Sebastian but it wasnt made obvious. This question will be answered in more detail in Part 25.

20. If you were to role out the credits for this script ,who would be the main characters? In my opinion they are Julian, Sebastian and possibly.....

Broadband: Good question. Yeah Julian and Sebastian would be the first names when the credits roll along with Jane. Jane has probably spoken a little less as the script went on but that's obviously to try and keep as far away from exposing the truth as possible; but all roads in the script leads to Jane, Julian and Sebastian's saga.

21. Finally is Kim a psycho b****? How far was she expecting them man to go (with Sebastian)?

Broadband: Hahaha! I'm glad you picked up on that. I think she wanted them to scare him a little, where the shooting motive came from you'll probably find out in Part 25. She is a little crazy for going to those lengths in the first place but again like I said, it's funny what people will do for "love". Lol @ Psycho Bitch!

Thanks for the questions!!

Good News: Part 25 will be looooong!! (hopefully all gaps and unanswered questions will be resolved)

Bad News: I will start it tonight but it will be completed tomorrow. I have to attend a Pbleepd meeting....sorry!!! So expect Part 25 to be on the screen tomorrow.

Be Easy!

Script Q&Answers Part 1

I know I know, this was supposed to be posted up yesterday but I didnt actually get to touch my computer yesterday because I was out (no excuses...but you know). thanks to Short'n'Sweet, Becks, Muffin, Anonymous, Alex, Leah Scott, Bethany Joye' and the lazy ones who asked me questions on MSN. Right lets go....

1. Where do you get inspiration from, for the characters? From people you actually know, TV or totally made up?

Broadband: Good question, I'd like to say that these characters were totally made up (and they were) but I guess when you're writing scripts you always have some sort of inspiration from something or someone you've seen before and it's kinda rested in your subconscious. Im still tryna figure out where mine came from; other than that I just made up these characters as I went along.

2. When did you start writing scripts and have you written any personal to your life?

Broadband: I wrote scripts when I did Drama for my A Levels but started taking it seriously at the end of 2006 when I thought of a good idea fo
r a TV show (still under works) since then I've written a few short films and have another project Im gonna work on later this year. No personal account scripts just yet but I think that may come with the project I do later this year.

3. Is Sebastian married to Kim or is that just his girlfriend?

Broadband: lol Becks you havent been reading properly have you? Nah Kim is just his girlfriend, double adultery would have been treacherous lol

4. Did Cameron and Nadine have a thing in the past?

Broadband: I wouldnt say a thing, they've known each other for a little while but nothing progressed in terms of a relationship but I would say that Cameron likes her. That could've been something I could of made more obvious in the script but Im sure there was already enough mini-storylines going on.

5. Are the characters based on people you know?

Broadband: No, however a lot of the characters are named after friends and people I know. E.g Julian is my brother's name, Gerald, Cameron, Natalie, Michelle, Evelyn & Kim are named after friends. Just to set the record straight before I get hounded by them, these characters are fictional and are nothing like my friends in real life....haha


6. The script is great so I would like to see it filmed. Have you thoguht about having it filmed and what format would you do it in? Would you do it as a one off feature length drama or would you do it as a series and divide it into episodes?

Broadband: Good question, I've been asked this one alot. I'd definitely like to film this mainly because of the feedback I've got and the fact that as readers you guys can already imagine the characters. I'm contemplating using an independent film company to help me film it and post it as a youtube series. I think it would be better off to film it as a series divided into mini-episodes as the "twists and turns" are a big element of the script and would keep viewers coming back. One Part 25 is posted up I'll start working on that.

7. I see the script as a drama with a comedic edge....what genre do you think this fits into and what would you say is your niche drama? If you didnt try your niche genre what other genres would you like to try your hand at?

Broadband: 7 good questions in a row lol. This script definitely fits into the comedy drama genre; I think depending on what message a writer is trying to bring across there has to be a balance. I can write one of either (comedy or drama) but I think it's more effective to combine the both so as a reader/viewer you have a rollercoaster of emotion; one moment you're laughing, the next minute you're shocked, angry or crying etc. It's kind of like a trick writer's do to stray the reader/viewer from knowing what happens next. Comedy Drama is definitely my niche genre but I have and will delve into everything from romance to action (not superhero type) especially with the project Im doing later this year, I think TV will be in for a treat.

8. Is there a piece of yourself in any of the characters, if so which ones?

Broadband: No comment lol..... I see myself in alot of the characters but I think they've been magnified so much as the script went along that I can only base myself on their characteristics rather than their actions. I have Julian's stubborness but not his naivety, Im very observant like Michelle but not nosey, I have Ritchie's confidence but not his arrogance etc

9. Is Sebastian a womaniser or does he have true feelings for any of the women, Jane for example?

Broadband: It's hard not to class Sebastian as a womaniser but he does indeed have feelings for Jane. Not many womanisers would ask a woman to divorce their husband even when they are still "getting theirs". Plus the text saga could have answered more questions...if only Michelle didnt interfere sigh lol

10. How difficult was it to write the script as you went along? Which part was the easiest/hardest to write?

Broadband: Nice question. Surprisingly it wasn't as difficult as expected, mainly because I was able to play around with the story with no direct knowledge of where or how it will end. Usually that could be a disastrous formula but fortunately I had enough creativity and focus to keep it from turning stupid. The hardest parts to write were 20-24 as I had to do five in a row within a day, they had to involve enough drama and comedy to keep the reader entertainted as well as hone in on the climax. It was still pretty easy to write but definitely had a little more thought involved.

Q&A PART 2 Next...
