anyway, as i was saying, i had that idea of the guy obsessed with porn. it's one of those ideas i instantly like mainly because it's not something one generally hands in for class, but if i could pull it off well enough she could hardly complain (much like in my world lit class in 12th grade when we had to write a paper on what books we'd take with us if we lived alone on a desert island, and one of mine was a playboy compilation. i forget exactly what i said there, but it was something to the effect of "even hermits have lonely nights"). the others were "weaveworld" (clive barker), "jurassic park" and.. um.. somethign else. i forget. [goes to check] ah, "dave barry talks back" and "stranger in a strange land". i'd probably alter that list if i had to do it again, but i don't want to invest the thought into it right now). sadly, i wasnt able to do that much with the idea. it became a crippled bitter voyeur story, and promptly died. such is inspiration.
now i'm starting one with a guy buying an acoustic guitar a few years after someone dies in a pit at a concert from when he was in a band. he stopped playing after that happened from guilt. it seems interesting so far, we'll see. if i dont hate it, i'll put it in verbalkint.. hey, i havent updated there in a long time! i should do that..
