My title is an Aboriginal word, Kanyini and I think the title works perfectly but just discovered it's the title of a documentary!


I absolutely wouldn't worry about it.  A) the doc is probably obscure and b) this isn't being produced (yet).  Worry about copyright then.  

Good luck!

I am not you, nor am I telling you what to do, but this is unacceptable. This is a contest and a spec script that should be a compelling, fantastic, grab-you-by-the-ankles-and-yank story. 
Geez, that comment is terrible.
Oh, I wrote and voiced my complaints... I wasn't going to let that one slide by. :)
You got Matlock to turn into Madlock. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE???

What!?

Your relating that comment from the judges made mister Matlock, here, mad. Hence, Madlock.

But I guess if I have to explain it, it's not all that funny.

I just made me sad, now.

Well, it made me laugh. A short, forced, almost unpleasant laugh. But you got it.

I got the joke, but it didn't feel like a joke, so I started getting paranoid... I made Stephen Matlock mad... and then I started wondering, or fearing, what the implications of that might be... and then my brain just went crazy with it, like "What have I done? I made Stephen Matlock mad!" Then I started thinking, "Uh oh, all of the people on the NYCM Forum are going to hate me!" And, well, you see where this is going, and where my thoughts went... Don't do that to me again Z, okay? Lol. Big smile

I wouldn't worry about making me mad. I am an enjoyable person. Unless someone provokes me.

Then I get mad.

You know, when I finally had black pudding in a big ol' Irish Breakfast...I kinda liked it. 

Wait, what were we talking about?

Lissen.

I love Ireland.

I love the Irish people.

I love a toast of Murphy's.

I love shopping in Irish shops and interacting with Irish clerks.

I love the walkability of its cities, and the generosity and friendliness of the people I meet whenever I visit, whether business or personal travel. If I could have a 2nd home anywhere, it would be in Cork, even in February.

But.

I am not going to stand for black pudding.

There. I said it.
