The Write Stuff

Writing is boring. It really is. It’s pretty much the most boring profession out there. That’s why all the movies about writers spend lots and lots of time on affairs and suicides, and why all the biographies tend to slow down when their subjects actually get down to work. So I don’t know how the producers of “The Write Stuff”, the new, poorly named, reality TV show expect to make it interesting. My guess, however, is alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol.

    My guess is that the title “The Write Stuff” has been sitting on the shelf for a long time. There was probably a sitcom pilot at one point that was tried, maybe a screenplay treatment, and every generation someone tries to resurrect it. Half the appeal is the title, so it’s probably not that hard of a sell. Personally, I would have given a reality TV show about writers living together in a house a more sexually charged pun, like “Happy Endings”.

    I just found a receipt inside of a book, a happily dog-eared copy of ulysses annotated. on the back of the receipt, in what i believe is Bacasa’s handwriting, it says “write stuff” in a neat little row of caps.

    I guess its true that marginal notions ripen after the passing of years. I like to imagine they ripen and fall to the ground like soft little peaches. And then the producers come by with their picking tongs and put them into their million dollar ideas.

    1st and foremost, this is Jiwe, and I want to address these clowns who posted those negative comments about THE WRITE STUFF. Yall ain’t got nothin else better to do than to criticize. yall are really sad or weak. So while this new reality show is getting aired on the CW, I’m sure yall will be home hating which is good, it’ll keep the ratings going up. yall who leaving these comments ain’t worth noodles homee, ain’t contributed nothing to the world, infact don’t even matter as far as I’m concerned. So beat ya feet, grow a pair, and find some other show to hate on. That’s what’s wrong with the world, fools like yall. Always got something negative to say. Talking about writing is boring. lol! no wonder why our youth don’t read/write, aspire to read/write, or care to read/write, because look at the fools who they have to look up to, fools like Nick Sarno, Moshe Zvi Marvit, and Caroline. How the hell can we encourage reading/writing to the youth then turn around and call it boring? So I guess it’s safe to say we can see what kind of parents yall are. Probably teaching your children absolutely nothing. I can picture it now, “hey Billy, why you reading that book? Reading is boring, but here, here’s the new vibe magazine, won’t you look at the pictures.” lol, yall three who posted those comments are lames, with ignorant minds. So to leave yall with what my momma used to say to me, if you ain’t got nothing good to say, shut ya face. Stay off the cpu writing up garbage. Instead of typing that garbage, yall should be reading. lol. Ay Cyrus, its ya boy Jiwe, don’t trip off these no names. They mean nothing to a GIANT like you. Keep pushin ya line homee, and i’m right beside you full throttle.

    Jiwe signing out…Ha! How ya like me…
