Not sure where in my dark and perverse mind this came from, but:
I was thinking it could be fun (and funny) to develop a character so insecure with his manhood and masculinity that he tries (and fails) to compensate for it with his gun and how he talks about it.
For example: this guy is in situations — shooting range, hunting lodge, wherever — everything seems somewhat normal, when unprompted and out of nowhere, he interjects with an outburst about his "stiff, long, piece..." Everone around him is put-off and looks and him like a weirdo...
I think this kind of character could work as a few 30-second sketches throughout the episode. Or, maybe longer...? Or, maybe not-at-all! :P
In Sky Marshal training we had a class on "How to Disarm a Gunman". Students had to take turns being the bad guy...aka, "the dummy."
Instructor: "Mangum...your turn to be the dummy."
Another student, the Good Guy, walks up to me. I stick the gun in his stomach and say:
"I'm gonna blow your brains out!"
All the other instructors...and all the other students...break out in hysterical laughter.
Instructor: "Mangum, if you're gonna blow a guy's brains out, you might want to put the gun up to his head."
Me: "You said for me to be the dummy."
Instructor: "Good job, Mangum...you're the best dummy so far."
You tried the whole running-your-hands-through-my-hair-in-a-sexy-manner thing.
Too bad my hair got in the way.
EVERYONE WITH A CAMERA: RECord your thoughts on the theme RE: SCHOOL. You can tell a story or discuss various angles on the theme.
Here are some Q&As you can answer (the more specific you are, the better):
so i was looking at the etymology of different words and stumbled upon this gem..
secretary (n.) late 14c., "person entrusted with secrets," from Medieval Latin secretarius "clerk, notary, confidential officer, confidant," a title applied to various confidential officers
i had no idea! i thought it was just a coincidence that "secret" was inside that word ^_^
so! wouldn't it be cool to make a secretary character? the person whose purpose is to keep all the secrets!
what secrets do modern secretaries keep?
what secrets did old-timey secretaries keep?!
does a secretary have to be a person?!
what does the secretary do with all the secrets?!!?
i have so many questions!
i don't know, maybe im over-excited about this, but i just thought it was an interesting starting point/angle.. :D
