Word is [via Slate] Getty images just dropped the pay wall and is trying something new, embeds that link back to the original source. I see that news and think, cool, I can go link some of my Getty photos without the watermark. [See for even me to use Getty photos of me without the watermark, there was some sort of pay scheme going --- which seems wrong but there you have it.]

I do a search. They come up, but not on Getty. On Zimio. Whut?

Here’s a Getty photo from the 25th Nicholl Fellowships Awards ceremony. Look how spiff we all look yay!

I love that photo but that’s not my favorite photo from that night. My favorite photo is not even a Getty photo it is an iPhone photo shot on the way to the awards when I hadn’t put my heels on yet and was stopping for a Diet Coke on the way. Yay!

[I had been off sugar, chocolate, sodas, coffee, bread and booze for two freaking weeks before the awards ceremony. Your face looks pretty for the camera if you knock all that crud off for a couple weeks --- but you are crying hard for a soda. Cry baby cry!]

A friend was reading the recent Max interview and said, That’s great, but when are you doing something live so I can see your face?

No live interviews any time soon but here is the face.

This is so awesome! My friend James Patrick Joyce was mocking up old movie posters and he did a totally cool one for me but since I am difficult [or so I have been told] I say, Oh that so rocks thank you for Gable and Powell — but can I have Some Like It Hot?

And he did it!

Yay! Yay! Yay!

This is totally going in my obituary file.

 


*Oh like you guys have not written your obituary in advance with fabulous lies in it too.

 

maxmas, yay!

black_hat_and_backless_dress 3 weeks till MaxMas!

 

Yay!

Where?  Austin Texas
When?  February 12
What Time?  12:01 AM until closing [we use the term "closing" loosely]

How should you celebrate MaxMas?  Oh let us count the ways… wait, we do not want to overwhelm you, let’s do a top five:

 

TOP FIVE WAYS TO CELEBRATE MAXMAS:

1.  Buy Max incredibly expensive shoes.  This is always a favorite, and also Dolce is a serious fave, but you might require a shoe size to pull it off and only very special people know Max’s shoe size.  Moving on —

2.  Give Max a spiff Victoria’s Secret gift card.  Of course, you probably won’t want to do that unless you are counting on actually seeing what Max uses that gift card for.  Feeling lucky? Maybe not. Moving on —

3.  Shower Max with Grand Marnier!  Okay we are using the word “shower” metaphorically, do not under any circumstances actually douse Max with Grand Marnier.  She is vengeful and also violent when it comes to cleaning bills.

4.  Drop some cash on the save the wolves fund in Max’s name.  Or anyone’s name.  We’re good with Godzilla. Just do it. You will feel good. Max will feel good. Wolves will feel good. Even Godzilla will feel good. Yay!

5.  Attend the MaxMas super super secret MaxMas underground party.  [There is only one way to do this.  Get the secret secret super secret party details.  Be creative.]

 

That’s it sports fans.

 

Love and Kisses,

 

Your MaxMas Adams Girl

At the risk of being grossly commercial here [hey it is Christmas, never say I do not understand the Christmas spirit o' commerce] if you are still running about and have not found that perfect gift for the screenwriter on your list [well diamonds would work too but let's say you are thrifty and want to keep it under thirty bucks] The New Screenwriter’s Survival Guide is available at these retail stores:

 

:::BOOK PEOPLE::: [Austin, TX]
:::BOOK SOUP::: [Hollywood, CA]
:::CINEMA BOOKS::: [Seattle, WA]
:::SAMUEL FRENCH::: [Hollywood, CA]
:::TRIDENT BOOKSELLERS & CAFE::: [Boston, MA]

 

That only works if you are in Austin, Hollywood, Seattle, or Boston, but hey, we are doing our best here and you ARE the one who waited until Christmas Eve to shop, jeez.

 


*The book is also available on :::AMAZON.COM:::.  In case you get any pesky gift certificates and do not know what to do with them.
