Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle…
Might be one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time.
Kris and I, after a long WMG meeting, headed into the valley to get me a Mac keyboard for my large iPad Plus. Then I went picking while she did some reading, then a nice dinner and then a late movie.
After the movie Kris sat and read while I tore apart two standees for decoration at our north store.
So a really fun evening and night, capped by the movie. We saw the original Robin Williams movie and remembered not being that impressed by it. But trust me folks, this one is a stunner and great fun, especially for writers. The script is taking a cliche and great actors and playing against the cliche while using the cliche. And it has wonderful heart and message.
Did I say it was funny? Couple times I thought I was going to roll out of my chair laughing. Not kidding. These four actors chewed up the scenery. Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillam, and The Rock.
I deleted yesterday’s post. Wasn’t much, but ah well… First time I have done that. Very weird. Wrote right over the top of it.

If you have credits from the Kickstarter, you need to write me to sign up. You can also sign up through me and use Paypal just like normal. Or you can go directly to Teachable and sign up there for any workshop using either Paypal or a credit card.
