I watched the preview for Ruby Sparks last night. Could be ok, or could be a steaming pile, hard to tell with this kind of movie. Movies about writers are catnip to me, but the catnip usually turns out to be poison ivy. Paul Dano, though.
The website for the movie wants you to type like you’re Paul Dano, and whatever you type floats across the screen in a magical HTML5 swirly-thing, while someone asks “Have you tried writing more?” over and over and over and eventually you get to create your own poster for the Tumblr, which brings us back to doing promotional work for the people getting paid to do it, like this.
I submitted the picture of Romney dressed like Bane, with the caption “He’s out of his mind.” I give my effort two stars out of five and fully expect it to never see the light of day, but if it gets approved and I win the contest (what do I win? I have no idea) I’ll take all of you to see the movie. Void where prohibited.
