The 'S' Factor, Illiteracy & The Pizza Philosophy

I'm writing a book.

Its not going well.

I have no writing style, it doesn't flow, the dialogue is clunky and unbelievable. Even so, I have the plot and characters so clearly in my head I have to write it down. Maybe by the time I'm done I'll be able to write. The only reason I say this, is because one of the characters said something to me this morning while I was still half-asleep (please don't have me sectioned, my imagination doesn't normally editorialize).

'This isn't a happy ending you know - its just happy punctuation in our shit lives'. I like that.

Last night I auditioned for the Lincoln Music Group (talent agency) and I think I passed. I have a card with a number I'm procrastinating from calling. It was a really good fun night though, and I think I made a good impression on everyone. If TV tells the truth, then I certainly don't have the X Factor - but maybe I have the S Factor instead - which is cooler and less commercial.

The best bit about last night? I DROVE THERE! Yes, I am back on the road, and loving it. I even have central locking and a sunroof, although even after my car was patched up after being vandalized (see earlier posts) there's a whole plethora of new problems to deal with. Chip in the windscreen, steering still not straight, something bumping underneath, and the left shock looks buggered. I've put so much money into this car, she better not let me down. By the way, I've called her Ziggy.

Breakfast Club also auditioned, and we've got some good vibes, but we're not sure if the agency would be interested in promoting an all originals band, as its tricky to market. Either way, the agency were awesome and I can't wait too see what's in store!

We got back and celebrated with a Topkapi Pizza (very yummy). Mike was astounded at how I only eat cheese and tomato pizzas. I came up with what I believe to be a perfect analysis of my culinary philosophy:
'You know how one person with a guitar can sound better than a symphony orchestra?'
'Yeh, what are you getting at?'
'Well, those ninety odd musicians in the symphony orchestra are all amazing musicians, but sometimes one amazing musician sounds better.'
'Well some times one topping tastes purer and more beautiful than all the toppings in the world'.
It was at this moment that I realized I'm completely full of shit.

Mike says he likes this video even better than the Bottle It Up one, so I thought I'd post it, see whatcha think :-)

cya soon,

Sam :-) x
