Taking the show on the road (i.e., from AIM to the Forum). Last night on AIM, I was asking HAL if he thought his robot brain could come up with a better way of measuring time (as an aside, HAL expressed utter disdain, nee, contempt for the antiquated "rules"/traditions/circumstances which force English-speaking, God-fearing, 'Mericans to end our names for the days of the week with the word "day" ---- HAL's brain fart got me thinking about biger things....existential things). At any rate, I told HAL that we could probably get Osama....err, Obama and the other Socialists up in D.C. to at least give us a half billion or so of the proposed $800 billion in new stimlulus. Personally, I would like to set up a system like in the movie "In Time." Time as currency would lead to a system where nobody would thresten to go all Thelma & Louise with a cliff. (Don't get me started on use of the term "Fiscal Cliff." Same principle of propaganda used in the "Tort Reform" arguments. Reform is a good thing so there must be a problem with the tort system. It is bad to go over a cliff...you get it.) But alas, I digress. Of course, the conversation soon turned to more important things (Hal and I have come up with a basic framework for the movie about HK...our PRELIMINARY working title is "A Video Game League of Their Own"....we are brainstorming on casting and who we want to do the screenplay. Strangely enough, KnightNoles was popping in and out of chat during this conversation singing that gay-ass Who Rides the Bus NFL Play 60 song from the commercial amd mumbling non-sense about bringing Gus Malzhan to the Steel City. Anyway, expect a big post updating the progress of getting the film made within a week or so. Main sticking point now is agreeing on the screenwriter. I want Haggis, but Hal thinks he is too faggy; Hal wants Sorkin, but I do not think that dude can grasp the politics of HK, and I think he will just create something to suit his agenda and pass it off on the world as real (can you say West Wing). Strangely enough, Hal and I agreed when Noles stopped mumbling incoherent fragments about Fig Newtons and some sort of option to spread a scheme with Mahlzan long enough to suggest Gus Van Sant --- guaranteed fag slant there. And, I am not homophobic. I think my postings here support that --- but HK deserves a super hero type script with J.J Abrams directing. Gonna need some input from the league on this one at the right time in the creative process. I think we have cast it perfectly though and I will be releasing that information ina soon to come post beofre the advent of HK Season 3. I am sure there will be debate, and I ask you to contain you excitement/opinions for now. Anyway, what was I talking about....oh yeah, measuring time by means other than that handed down by the Holy See a couple of thousand years ago. I think we are already off the Roman Calendar in HK. Our "day" is an advance, and we call our days cool names like Week 3, Wildcard Round and FA 1. Problem solved, Hal. At this point, I was off into my own head pretty fucking deep....I am not talking Sartre deep...I mean fucking Heidegger "Being and Time" deep. German deep. All that saved me was when I began to think about the joyous time of year we are entering, and I started to ponder the real reason for this joyous season. If you think that I am talking about Christmas, snap out of it. I am on HK time dude. I am talking about the most joyous day of the HK Calendar year....the Day of Days in HK....Draft Day. And on this Draft Day Eve, I have a special posting planned for all of my HK bros real meaning of the HK Draft and the important things to remember amd celebrate on this most joyous of days.
