Overheard at Table 3: Notes for Movie Idea

Movie idea

While listening to the song, "Killed Myself When I Was Young."

- man goes looking for the Christ child.

- picks up Squiggly


    what's your name?

    Just call me Squiggly

    Squiggly?  That's a name?

    It's more like who I am.  I was taking a college class one time and the prof was all like about sexual identity and everyone was saying that they were straight or gay or bi or curious and I just said I'm squiggly and everyone was like 'oh yeah I feel that way sometimes too' ... you know, squiggly?

    So I guess I'm just calling you Squiggly.

    And what are you?


    Simian.  Like an ape.  Or a "MANLY MAN!"






Johnny Cash "Delia's Gone"

Sufjan Stevens "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing"

Traveling Wilburys "Tweeter and the Monkey Man"

the soundtrack is the Sound of the American Highway


Selene ... Simeon with binoculars, watching the horizon, the Star comes out on the horizon.

The genesis of the story The Advent Calendar of T Harold Hark.

I don't know if I ever used these notes in the draft of that novel, but I should review them and see if they fit and can be used in next draft.
