Life Gets An Act
Time for the question of the month again and I will probably have a peculiar answer this time, but then I am crazy so it is to be expected.
Who would play you in a movie of your life?
First thing is first, the movie of my life would probably bore. At best it would be one of those whiny drama things that may end up being a tad depressing for a lot of it. The rest of it would have me talking to cats. That would be rough as you can’t really train cats to obey commands on screen. So my life’s movie would be doomed from the get go.
Secondly, no way would I want some whiny, self absorbed, lazy, prima donna actor playing me. People validate these nitwits because they can do what any two year old can do, make believe. Wow, that is something. Hey, I enjoy lots of movies and TV shows, so I’m glad there are actors, but in the end they are the laziest bunch in the whole process. Some have assistants for their assistants and can’t even walk ten feet to get their own bottle of water. Some can’t work with another actor because the poor whiny baby doesn’t like them. Yet normal people suck it up and work with those they don’t like every day. Writers, directors, set designers, all put way more into any production than the actors do. Without them the actors would be in their parents basement playing make believe still. Don’t get me wrong, there are some talented ones, some very nice actors it seems by the way they conduct themselves, and not everyone can act, or rather act well, but it is still doing what any child does every day. Also some have to work at keeping in shape and all of that as the role calls for it. That sure as heck can’t always be easy.
So in the end there would be no movie of my life and no actor playing me. I wouldn’t feed into the BS that comes with them and the pedestal that people put them up onto. You can follow a script and sit in a trailer all day. Woweee, that is so impressive.
Was I too cynical? Who would play you?
Enjoy life, forget the strife.
