Max Adams, Evil Script Sprite Incorporated

 

Hmm. So Geoff Latulippe just said

“Ugh, Max.

“Your reputation is well known to those in the film business. As a cautionary tale. I needn’t document it here, but suffice to say I can’t imagine a legit industry professional would vouch for you at this point.”

 

 

 

This is a response to a post in which I told Geoff lambasting anyone who is a teacher, mentor, or consultant, is wrong.

The post is “A RESPONSE TO JEANNE V. BOWERMAN AND SCRIPT MAGAZINE.”

He was attacking Jeanne in that post. Sigh. Now he’s attacking me for responding with credits.

It would actually be interesting if Geoff did “document” my alleged cautionary tale, since then I’d know what I’m getting hit for this time. The gossip internet tabloids about me are always interesting. But —

SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT THIS MISSION:

If I have ever impacted your writing career in a positive way, as writer, teacher, mentor, consultant, author —

Go tell Geoff about it.

Geoff seems to think I’m a terrible person and a horrible teacher and mentor.

According to him, everyone else in Hollywood thinks so too.

Fuck I had better call my agent. What if he has heard this Geoff news?  Jesus!

 


*Not to be bitchy about it, (okay actually I am being a total bitch about it, and on purpose too, fuck you!, whoops!). My biggest detractors in “the film biz” are usually men I wouldn’t have sex with.

Is that crude? Yes, yes it is. It is also accurate. I’m tired of being polite instead of accurate. [No worries, you can mention my trash mouth along with my weight in my obituary.]

On January 29th, Colleen McCullough, teacher, scientist, researcher, doctor and beloved author who touched million of lives, died at the age of 77. She was one of Australia’s most prestigious authors, she penned 25 novels and is best known for The Thorn Birds which sold 30 million copies worldwide, earning $1.9 million — a record for the time — and was adapted into a TV miniseries that came in second at the time in viewings only to Roots.

Her obituary in the Australian opens:

Colleen McCullough, Australia’s best selling author, was a charmer. Plain of feature, and certainly overweight, she was nevertheless a woman of wit and warmth.

So there you have it. She was fat and plain. Good to know. Because no matter how accomplished a woman is, you can sum her up by whether or not she’s fat and whether or not she is attractive to men. Good thing she was jolly, or that fat thing might have really counted against her….

 


 
I’m guessing Colleen did not have kids. I don’t know for a fact, maybe she did. But usually they don’t go straight for “fat and not enough make up to make me want to do her” if they can just call you a mom and relegate your important to whether or not a baby ever popped out of your vagina. They do it to astronauts. They do it to photographers. If Colleen had had kids, they probably would have done it to her.
 


 
Check out the hashtag on twitter, #myozobituary – that baby is going viral yay!
