For some reason one of my addresses gets a load of spam related to screenwriting. Normally it's just plugging courses etc, but I got this very specific one the other day:
SQuid Brothers, INC. is looking for a completed, feature length dark drama or gritty thriller scripts which involve a hardened male character (24-28 preferred but not required) who interacts with a young, “quirky but bright” 11-13 year old female character,

i.e. Something in the vein of “The Professional,” “Sling Blade,” “Taxi Driver,” or “City of Lost Children.” The male character in the story should have enough moral sense to not hurt the child, and should learn something from the kid as the story unfolds, perhaps even becoming a mentor to, and then later becoming mentored by the child character. We especially favor stories where the communication between the main characters takes place more through body language than dialogue, such that the acting is more in the eyes and less in the conversation. And we’re especially interested in a hard, gritty, dark role for the female character. Budget for this project will not exceed $1.5 million. WGA and non-WGA writers may submit.
Sounds good eh? Or... does it? Anyone got any good ideas?

Sadly it looks from a quick search as though spam uses of this excellent term are outstripping "genuine" ones.

In other spams, hello to my new correspondents Hairstyles O. Electrocardiogram and Gamey H. Flanders, who have apparently sent me an e-card.

In boring house news meanwhile, we had a guy in to service our boiler today, and he's condemned it, as apparently it was venting CO into the bathroom. Good job we never breath in there eh? We were kind of expecting this as it's an old boiler which the previous owners had never had serviced at all, but we were hoping it would get us through the winter before having to lash out gosh knows how much replacing it. Ho hum.

More positively, I've repaired the stairs to the cellar (which were so rickety I managed to amusingly fall through them) and I've made a start on taking up the flooring in the conservatory, which has a nasty sag in one corner. It's not as if these are original Victorian components of the house -- that stuff is all still sturdy and fine. It's the more recent bodge jobs that are falling apart. And no doubt my own fixes will disintegrate just as quick, in a cycle of destruction that will only end when (a) the house falls down, or (b) it's bought by someone who actually has enough money to get things fixed properly.

Doesn't bode well for the grammar checker in the next edition of Word, if genuine:

I'm intrigued by "The choice occurred in the casual image". What on earth can this be intended to mean?

"The fire hydrant organizes the inferiority complex defined by the cheese wheel. Any cough syrup can sanitize a power drill, but it takes a real fairy to underhandedly play pinochle with the dreamlike submarine. A seldom smelly buzzard hesitates, and a tornado ruminates; however, an anomaly over the sandwich trades baseball cards with some wedge around the inferiority complex. A wedge toward a canyon caricatures the rattlesnake of a judge."
(and much more along similar lines, wrapped around a brief message about the virtues of a curious-looking plastic device of some sort).

I much prefer this to the type of spam that excerpts chunks from Jules Verne novels. If this text is actually generated, there's some pretty good language analysis stuff going on there. (Although maybe it's just substituted into predefined sentences, that wouldn't be so interesting...)

At least, I assume this is a spam, although it seems to serve no useful purpose -- there's no link, no attachment, etc. Any theories anyone? It's kind of intriguing... reads like a genuine message rather than the extracts from out-of-copyright literature that usually bulk these things up...


The spam )

I've got no idea what on earth the point of this is -- particularly the curious note at the end. Anyone else get one?
