More thangs.

Whoops, meant to reply to your post so much earlier. Sorry!
Anyway, more what ifs:

1. What if you left Singapore when you were young and came back when Singapore became all modern, and wanted to recreate that old, dingey feeling all the damn time?

2. What if, despite everyone's pressure to become a couple, two close friends decide to stay that way?

3. What if you were a kid, and started believing your dad was... secret aaagent man?

4. What if there was this rock band trying to make it locally, and they had no idea how much they sucked, but just kept rockin' on anyway?

Heh, not very good though. Like I said, ideas these days are trite... and half the time I think of something then forget it because I don't write it down. Damn this short attention span of mine.

Some conversation nuggets (if memory serves me right)

At Dhoby Ghaut, walking to PS from the underground

J: I love travelators.
D: They're kinda stupid. Tiny people all crammed up on a machine that moves you forwards, when it'd be faster to walk.
J: Travelators are cool. They're my favourite part of the airport. I love the airport. There are so many things I love about the airport.
D: Yeah especially the part where you GET OUT OF THIS COUNTRY.
J: Oh I love that part.
D: And cheap alcohol.
J: That too.

In the elevator...

J: You should make a film about the bird flu.
D: Whuh?
J: You know, the chickens are fighting back! They're spreading a disease to get back at us for years and years of eating them. Like Chicken Run.
D: Yeah, I could call it Chicken Running Nose!
J: ...
D: Chicken Running Nose!
J: ...


Waiting at the AXS station:

D: Please don't be buying Lost in Translation. Please don't be buying Lost in Translation.
J: There are 10 people staring at the tiny screen. Why would you need 10 people to stand there?
D: Must be some IRC channel outing.
J: I think they're buying Gothika.
D: Must be some IRC channel outing.


J: Hey, why are these people buying tickets for another theater from here? If they want to watch at Bishan shouldn't they BUY it at Bishan?
D: It's an AXS station. Maybe PS ticks all sold out.


J: Shit, all the tickets are sold out.
D: Damn those kids and their 10 hours deciding whether they wanted to watch Gothika
J: Wait, where's Simon?
D: He's at the arcade. I think he got too bored he went to go watch people play Dance Dance Revolution.

Needless to say the spontaneous attempt to watch LiT failed... but I think should be trying to watch it this weekend... join me and farah and her bunch?

chicken running nose is actually funny. :D

Ok comments, but purely based on what I think I'd be able to contribute when writing :) I like 1 & 3!
2 & 4 are a tad hard for me to relate... but lets not toss em'/variations of them out till we shortlist.

Is 1) a reversal of Goodbye Lenin of sorts? Possible.

I like 3) the best, it has comic potential! I think a child's pov is quite fun, because they say it as it is, that or they lie like mad. Hmmmm.

2)I'm not sure if I can contribute enough to sustain witty dialogue and development to bring a 1 hour film/series to fruit about 2 ppl choosing to stay friends.

4) I don't have much experience with rock bands! I'm sorry :| It might be hard for me to feel about, and for non-rock lovers/ people who have no idea what the local music scene to relate?

These what-ifs are seriously good, lets keep going.
speaking of which... are we going to meet up this week? I'm packed until Saturday early afternoon... Maybe can get together for a bit on Sunday? Watch Lost in Translation?
Sunday's fine for a short bit after lunch! I'm not sure if I can do the movie though, I'm due for editing on Sunday afternoon. See if you're meeting farah and co for LiT, I can catch you for a bit before then?
