I didn't know female horse–flies can bite and draw blood. Phobia of sleeping with flies lately?
I keep repeating to myself that the script I'm working on will piece together itself once I introduce the concept of the same scene being viewed from different perspectives. I guess that means different sequences too. But gawd, yesterday's battle with the flies from hell has given me insight to what a fly's POV might be like because as I was trying to enjoy my dinner, watch TV, do a little writing for the blog, I kept being interrupted by flies.

Now, I should clarify that my house isn't infested with flies. In fact, it's very rare that a fly would make it's way inside my house at any other time of the year. Personally, I think flies have a way of communicating with each other and they are constantly communicating with each other about my deadly ways towards them. "Hey, watch out for that guy. He's very skilled in killing flies for his pitcher plant."

The pattern seems to be during summer heat waves when nothing wants to be outdoors during the day, especially high noon. So what happens is these enormous horse–flies (Tabanidae) — which I just discovered that are known to bite. At least the females bite as they have a lust for blood — these insects find their way down vents on my rooftop and somehow enter the house from the attic. My attic is not large enough to be traipsing around in, but it's there for electrical piping, and whatever other reasons carpenters decide to build it.

When I came home from work that day, I didn't expect I would encounter 5 horse–flies as they came to my attention one at a time. After killing the first one, and another large horse–fly appears, that's when I begin to wonder whether this isn't natures way of getting retribution for all the fly killing I do in my life. The last one I killed is where I want to take this narrative.

It sits on one of the blades of a window screen. I was already exhausted from killing a few flies earlier in the week. It's exhausting work following it around, or scheming traps to coax it into a small room. I didn't want to damage the screen by flicking the t-shirt I was using that day for the previous flies I had found, so I used a technique that I hadn't used in awhile. All it took was raising the window screen so that the fly gets trapped in between the blades. While I'm doing this, I'm moving my hand in close proximity so that it might think to watch me instead of concerning itself with the slight vibration of the rising window screen. It doesn't get smashed the way a flyswatter might do, but it's trapped in between the blades and doesn't have the strength to squeeze itself out. The clean death is what I like about this method.

So I was thinking about the way I was waving my hand in front of it so as to get its attention… and it dawned on me that a newspaper in my hand might've been a good prop. Then I think of what the fly is seeing in its final seconds of liveliness. If I had a newspaper, it might've seen the headlines of the silliest presidential race of all time. And that's what I want to use in my screenplay.

Evan Lindquist, Old Ink Recipes

Standard for Government Writing Ink
(Federal Specification, TT-I-563, Ink; Writing)

This formula was written originally to provide ink for use in post-office lobbies, where the conditions are devastating to pens. This standard ink is similar to some of the commercial writing inks. ...

The formula for the standard writing ink is:

Tannic acid, 11.7 grams
Gallic acid crystals, 3.8 grams
Ferrous sulphate crystals, 15.0 grams
Hydrochloric acid, "dilute", S.S.P., 12.5 grams
Carbolic acid (phenol), 12.5 grams
Dye (C.I. 707; Sch. 539), 1.0 gram -- (NOTE: Explanation of this dye is in Appendix, the last page).
Water (distilled is best) to make a volume of 1 liter at 20 degrees C (68 degrees F).
From Circular of the National Bureau of Standards C413, "INKS"
U.S. Department of Commerce, Issued December 28, 1936
By C. E. Waters

Standard for Government Writing Ink Powder
Ferrous Sulphate Ink Powder, Iron Gallate Inks
Many formulas exist for making ink powder to produce writing fluid of good keeping quality, low acidity, and satisfactory permanence. Ink will keep longer without depositing sediment if it is made without tannic acid, but with an increased amount of gallic acid. It is possible to replace the usual hydrochloric or sulphuric acid by less than an equivalent quantity of a solid organic acid. ... The weight of ferrous sulphate called for, 15.0 grams, contains 3 grams of iron.

Gallic acid crystals, 10.0 grams
Ferrous sulphate crystals, 15.0 grams
Tartaric acid, 1.0 gram
Soluble blue (C.I. 707; Sch. 539), 3.5 grams -- (NOTE: Explanation of this dye is in Appendix, the last page).

Dissolve ingredients in enough water (distilled is best) to make total volume of 1 liter. Variations in the type of dye and the amount of air in the bottle may cause formation of sediment. ...
From Circular of the National Bureau of Standards C413, "INKS"

Tannin ink for writing on celluloid

Ferric chloride, 10 parts
Tannin, 15 parts
Acetone, 100 parts
Dissolve the ferric chloride in a portion of the acetone and the tannin in the residue, and mix the solutions.

Walnut ink notes

On the scenes at the KFC between MOLLY and drive thru window CLERK

No conflict in setup for MOLLY's breakdown. This could mean that BIER'S demise happens between the encounter with ELLE and the tantrum at the drive thru.

On the LOONEY TUNES parody/computer saver

I think what you're trying to say is the process of production of e-zines using silk screen printing.

-USED- See animation of EVIL OTTO sequence in ACT ONE.

On the sequence where AARON smokes in the break room because he's expecting MOLLY to bring KFC which can mask the smell of anything.

NOTE: find index card for this sequence. Reposition to ACT THREE.

On the dialog revealing BLYTHE INDIAN INTAGLIO as setup for rooftop jungles and smiley faces

July 18, 2016 Needs more conflict. Setup for smiley faces in blood scene and it's connection to rooftop jungles needs stronger links. As a matter of fact, I cannot see how or where the setup for painting addresses on rooftops is going to come in. Hint: typing the stalking HS scenes w/ computer technology might be worth researching instead of showing MC infatuation w/ an average looking girl.

On the gross effects killing flies has on BIER's friends

Why? was it-- is it as to function as some sort of reminder to do something significant with the Arnold de Torroja character.~


On sequence introducing ELLE's character to BIER at the e-zine publishing firm where he works

Basically you have to ask yourself why these scenes aren't already in the rewrite TMTWNGM (page 5ish). Find index card. Reposition.
BIER looks up to see that the group of women have wandered off.
BIER tenses up at the sound of her name. He begins to use every opportunity he can to sneak a glancer at her-- FLASHBACK High school, etc. END FLASHBACK … measuring her. But now he can't find her. He discreetly looks up in between the paper shuffling, makes a thorough scan about his locale, then gives up. He has a customer. Shocked, he puts on his glasses.

ELLE's POV would be that the slight tint in the lenses made it look as if BIER was trying to disguise himself

BIER makes observations without leading on to the fact that he recognizes ELLE. He analyzes her nose, her hands, her fingers, her hair, her eyes, her height. All the while, looking as natural and robotic as he can.

On the scenarios of DEIRDRE being the editor who selected ELLE as the "spotlight" sorta researcher

I think this whole sequence should be done in silence to reflect BIER/PETE's POV. I mean, it doesn't matter that a line of dialog transpires, but no sound. (i.e. As if the only thing missing is the music PETE/BIER is known to have in his head. Emphasize this to reflect growth.)

In ELLE's mind, PETE always was fond of METAL but in BIER's mind, it wasn't until this chink in fate, their lives crossing after 30-some years, that caused BIER to appreciate METAL so much more.
