Hmm. So Geoff Latulippe just said
“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.

I really love this photo — despite the fact, looking at it now, it is clear I need to burn those pants.
That is me and Pumpkin walking through Austin to the Bat Bridge.

I am bringing back The Moon Fairy Tale just because I really like it. Also it’s a really good break from trying to feng shui the fridge and closet, ahhh!
A king asked his young daughter what she would like for a present. And she said she loved the moon, she would like that.
And the king asked, How big do you think the moon is?
And she said, It is just the size of my thumbnail when I hold it up to the sky.
And the king asked, What do you think the moon is made of?
And she said, It is silver, that is why it shines in the night.
So the king had a silver smith make a silver moon the size of his daughter’s thumbnail and the king placed it on a silver chain and gave it to his daughter and she wore it around her neck and was happy.
But the king was afraid. What if she saw the moon in the sky?
So the king closed up all the palace windows and no one was allowed to see the night sky.
But the people grew unhappy. And his daughter grew unhappy. And she began wasting away because she could not see the night sky any more.
So one day the king allowed the windows to be opened again at night, but he was very afraid of his daughter seeing the moon.
And of course she did. But she did not seem unhappy.
And the king asked his daughter, Do you see the moon in the sky?
And she said, Of course.
And he said, Don’t you worry about how it got there when you have the moon on a chain?
And she said, No, it is like a new tooth. You can take the moon away, but another will grow back
That is the moon fairy tale. I heard the moon fairy tale when I was very young. It is probably in a book I was too little to remember. But I always remembered the story.
Also that photo was taken by my friend Mercedes. It reminded me of the moon fairy tale which is why you get to hear the moon fairy tale today.
