"Purple pills
cure all ills.
Keep them close

Fractured temple,
Cursed mind,
Not unstable,
Not unkind,
Not instructive.
Understood,
Purple pills
for greater good.

Take them first,
Take them last,
Take them always,
Take them fast.

The 3 most important things for a movie are; story, story and story! No the book doesn't say that but everyone who understands film making does. Unfortunately that does not include the majority of the people within the industry.

Deceive not me with soul flattering words for these bind me fast and tether me to my perennial past,
Un-changing,

Ike Khan wrote I See: 1
"You stand with apt repose, perchance
To stray the eye with side-long glance
Yet such applied with innocence
Not to affect nor to entrance
I see.

The subtle gesture of the prow
The tacit promise to endow
Not grasping what nor knowing how
Yet countenance sh..." Read more of this chapter »

"Lucidity, my once fine friend
Will storm ne’er end or skies be fair?
Will thoughts no longer follow me,
Will notions not return my stare?

Demon weavers loom against
The cambric of my reason;
Drape it o’er with heavy baize
To veil the breeze of final sea..." Read more of this chapter »

Oscar Wilde
“Yet each man kills the thing he loves
By each let this be heard
Some do it with a bitter look
Some with a flattering word
The coward does it with a kiss
The brave man with a sword”
Oscar Wilde, The Ballad Of Reading Gaol

“Baldrick, we are about as similar as two...dis-similar things in a pod!”
Richard Curtis

Description: I got a phone call late one night from a friend of mine. He was in a state of panic and asked if I could help him. He needed a speech to deliver to a conference of the "Islamic Chamber of Commerce" to held in Chesham, UK. He was to support a prominent Member of European Parliament and he needed it to be good. Unfortunately he was too drunk to do it himself. Oh yes, and could I have it ready for the morning. Well, bleary eyed, I gave it my best shot.
