Stories around my fantasy trilogy - Breaking the Tranquillity of Solitude.Starting to Edit
Well, last week I said I’d be trying to come up with something a bit less ‘self-promotional’ so I have had my head down editing and re-writing, but it got me thinking of a time when I took some famous film clips and rehashed them to do a fun cross promotion of a company I was working for at the time.
So I’ve decided for next week at least if not a few more to do similar, where I’ll take a famous monologue and rewrite it to give a different version that relates to my writing content etc. I’m then for a bit of fun going to attempt a karaoke style rendition of said monologue to see how it fairs against the original.
Here’s the original for next week and I think most will recognise it.You all know me. Know how I earn a livin'.
I'll catch this bird for ya, but it ain't gonna be easy.
Bad fish! Not like goin' down the pond chasing bluegills or tommycods.
This shark, swallow you whole. Little Shakin'. Little Tenderizin'. Down you go.
And we got to do it quick. That'll bring back the tourists that’ll put all your businesses on a payin' basis.
But it's not gonna be pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, Chief.
I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him and kill him, for ten.
You got to make up your minds. You want to stay alive and ante up?
Or want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter.
I don't want no volunteers. I don't want no mates. There's too many captains on this island.
Ten thousand dollars for me by myself. For that, you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing.
Let’s see what I can come up with to compete against the master? Watch the original here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPi40lQetew
