80 pages refers to the page count we're at in the screenplay. Ze Frank once said that his favorite part of the creative process was when he was about 2/3rds of the way through a project. The older I get the more I realize I'm different from Ze in this regard. When I get to the 2/3rds point I'm usually about ready to be done with whatever I'm working on. Except I'm not quite sure what the next thing is going to be at this point. There will be a next thing but right now I don't know what it's going to be.
Just came across this Facebook group called "When Fred Phelps dies I'm going to picket his funeral." It's weird, because it's something I've thought about before. Whenever I read an article about a protest going on at a soldier's funeral, I always wonder if the same thing is going to happen when Phelps dies. And then I feel a little uncomfortable, because the thought of a person doing something like that strikes me as a little hypocritical.
So here's my two cents worth. When Fred Pheps dies, and if you're among the many who decide they want to picket at his funeral, I ask that you do this: instead of succumbing to the hate and hostility that Phelps and company express on a regular basis, be silent. Hold a sign that says "GOD LOVES ALL."
There is enough hate in this world. When Phelps dies it would be nice if there was some way we could let the world know there's a little less of it.
But all in all I think it would be a damn shame for a person who detested Phelps to inadvertently continue preaching his gospel.
