I've been keeping this under my hat, but for anyone who's interested in checking out the script/novella, I've decided to post it online.

Not only that, but it includes some original illustrations from our very own Naeim Khavari, which are totally freakin awesome.

Let me know what you think!

...

Thank you thank you thank you.

*clears diary for the rest of forever to give this the time it deserves*

*coughs*

Getting abck to reality, I wish I'd caught this before I left work this afternoon - my printer at home's just run out of ink and I have a long hot commute into London tomorrow which would have been fabulously filled by this...

Ah well, another time maybe. Instead I shall simply have to take my usual fallback of a notepad and pen and tap into my brain.

WOOHOO! Thank you, Rian! :D

Although, now I'm not going to get anything done today.

I'm just a few pages into it and I'm already appreciating my trip a few weeks ago to San Clemente even more. Being able to picture everything in detail really adds to the reading experience.

*goes back to reading*

Haven't read it yet but you seem to have been paying attention to the minute-a-page rule...

Splendid.

Let me be another to add my thanks. I can't wait to get the DVD tomorrow and this is really icing on the cake. I've been itching to read it ever since pieces showed up on the movie site.

Loved the footnotes to the script! The one about Frisco especially made me and mine laugh.

big ups people!

This Novella is the sweetest thing there is. Free man Free!!

now if it was up to me i think there are some definate debunking bits on Brain in this novella. If its up to me again i would safely like to say that Brain is his own person

Brain lives his own life damnit!!!!

Rian it's been a huge pleasure working with you on this. Big ups to the Brickophiles!

Free on the Internet

byyyyyahhhhhhh!

You, my friend, are every type of amazing.

Drove an hour to see it in the theatre. Bought it on the day the DVD came out. Now, I'm billing jobs at work so I can print all 186 pages there since my printer broke.

I still have to go back and check, but I'm leaning towards saying that this was the best first feature film for a director ever created. Seriously.

I'm going to go ahead and say that I read the screenplay before I saw the movie. I don't even remember it being screened in Toronto, and even if it was, it's not like I could have gone, Toronto is too far. So I believe that reading the script made understanding the movie so much better. Now, I don't know how that affected my opinion of the film after seeing it once, but it was amazing. For instance, I didn't have to wonder "what did Laura whisper?" because I assumed she said mother f---er. I was also able to re-read scenes I didn't quite understand and was able to put my own view as to how I think the final product would turn out. Like reading the book before the movie. And I'm pretty sure your descriptions were amazing in that I would say well over 90% of what I thought something was going to look like looked like it did. The major one not being what I thought it would be was the house that the Halloween in January party was held at, I thought it would be more of a typical high-school party, but then again, this isn't a typical high-school movie... in fact, looking back, I liked the movie version better than my imagination version. Well done, and I guess I should stop talking since this is a thread about the script. Oops.
