The Mindy Project

Last week, I finished reading Mindy Kaling’s book.  I read the pilot script for The Mindy Project and I’ve been rewatching all of the episodes.  I’ve started breaking down episodes.  I decided I’m going to write a Mindy Project spec for submitting to writers fellowships next year.  Going to really work my ass off and hope something happens. 

I’m continuing to learn a lot and am constantly bouncing between optimism and feeling like a moron and wanting to just give up on life.

I have my New Girl and Girls specs from the past couple of years to improve as well as a shitty pilot that has potential.  And then there are about 5 or 6 ideas I really like that are in various stages of preparation.

I wish I could just get the ideas out of my head as fully formed things.  But I think I’m getting better at outlines.

Utopia

We watched the first 3 episodes of FOX’s new reality show Utopia.  It’s really hard to watch.  It’s basically like Big Brother but with way more space and they are supposed to “build” their own society but they brought a lot of stuff with them, already have supplies, and have $5,000 to use to order food and more supplies once they are able to connect electricity to the barn they’re living in and can plug in the phone they were given.

It’s supposed to last a year but the ratings are getting worse and worse.  It’ll be airing twice a week.

The casting is terrible.  They have relied on throwing people in there who clearly have untreated mental illnesses for most of the conflict.

Mostly nothing happens besides showing annoying people arguing with each other.

I don’t think it’ll last much longer but FOX put $50 million into it.

That’s Paul Giamatti’s car. It wasn’t a vanity plate, they just gave it to him.

Went to the zoo today instead of work.

I took some crappy cellphone pictures.

The tortoises seemed like the happiest animals there.  They were super active and horny.

Barnes and Noble 50% off Fall sale started

We checked one of the locations near us but didn’t find anything we cared about.  We’re gonna check two other locations tomorrow.  One of those had X-Wing stuff on clearance during the summer sale.
