Novel concepts.

I've been musing on book titles. I think they're all begging to be greenlit.

'The dos and dos of sexual frisson.' Tagline: Just do it!

'A brief history of history, abridged version.'

'Hey you, behind the bushes.'

'What the blind man saw.'

'Copy and paste.' Tagline: My story.

'Take off your clothes and sing me a song.' Tagline: The story of Ireland's third most prominent burlesque performer.

'Bite me.' Tagline: The truth behind cherries.

'Dennis.' Tagline: The untold story of a very specific otter.

'Why I never rhyme.'

'Withering Frights.'

'The fool and the duck.'

Where were you when I whined about my title disability? I like 'Withering Frights'. Know a few too.

Think 'Dennis' has untold possibilities. It practically writes itself.

Then start writing :-)

I like "What the Blind Man Saw". In my head I heard the tag line "when politicians speak, he sees their true colors".

Yeah, the election here is getting on my nerves. :)

Getting on all our nerves Hope! Currently watching the debate. McCain has taken out the boxing gloves.

I like the sound of 'Hey you, behind the bushes', would make a good photobook, or a candid camera show. Go to a park and shout 'hey you, behind the bushes' and see what happens... would be funny, only not in ranelagh gardens because the bushes are usually full of drunks... hmmm...

Radge said...

You're thinking of going to Ranelagh Gardens, aren't you?

See you there.

8ish.

tina said...

errr, that's ranelagh gardens in dublin, ohio...

Radge said...

Hmmm... Problematic. Better make it closer to 9.

tina said...

crap... ok then... i think...

O to be 15 again. Used to love the knacker drinking, me. Back then finishing work at 11pm was for barmen and bus drivers.

Cut to the present day, and I'll be copying and pasting until midnight. The moral of all this? Don't go to the Gardens alone! Peril! Those bush-dwellers bite!

I need a lie down.
