Sometimes, inspiration is easier than Paris Hilton. It’s not really that easy to come by, but sometimes you get lucky. Of course, luck is usually a byproduct of busting it on a daily basis. So when I found inspiration by literally just sitting on my ass this afternoon, I was digging the irony.
Went to see Mockingjay with my lovely daughter. She turned me on to the Suzanne Collins books a few years ago and we have been feasting on the cinematic versions ever since. I was initially miffed (pissed) when they halved the final chapter, but after seeing it, I do believe they made the right choice.
I’m gonna throw in a spoiler alert, so if you don’t want to know what happens, scroll down a tad.
Mockingjay Spoiler Alert:
It was near the end of the movie that an idea hit me over the head and asked me to take it home. I like my ideas the way I like my women .. strong, decisive and ready for anything. This one checked all my boxes, and so I ran it by Christy and she approved. Which is why we will be considering how to maneuver it into our story moving forward.
And speaking of our Editor in Chief, she came up with the truly brilliant idea of creating a space for Sam and Dave in the blogosphere, so there will be more news on that front in the weeks to come.
Anyways, I’m dealing up another installment of Sam and Dave’s Inconvenient Truths this Sunday. It’s gonna be Dave and his lonesome song journey to the love of his life. No spoilers, not even a hint of what comes next . . sooooo, you’ll just have to catch it on Sunday.
If you want to know what inspires us to imagine a world full of flesh eating zombies? Welp, that’s easy.
