Good Day, Mr. Kubrick
Prerequisite: Familiarize yourself with the works of Brian Atene, act-tor.
Good Day, Mr. Kubrick. My name is Mark Wynkoop, Act-tor. It is my great privilege to be addressing the greatest director of our time, although perhaps not as great as genre stalwart Walter Hill, the second unit director of Up Yours - A Rockin' Comedy, and director of Crossroads--although the one with Ralph Macchio--not the Brittany Spears opus.
Now that you have passed on, you are doubtless spending a great deal of time with former act-tors. Some dead longer than you, others shorter, but none more similar to my manner of beautiful affectation than that of the great Roddy McDowell, although I like to think of myself as a young Alec Guinness.
I say this not as vain rodomontade, but strictly as a matter of course. My favorite composer is Erich Wolfgang Korngold, when I was 12 years old I won a spaniel puppy for 50 cents, and my favorite color is green.
And speaking of Ralph Macchio, in a moment I shall be presenting a scene, first from S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders, and then from the premature aging telemovie The Three Wishes of Billy Grier.
But first, your phony band names of the day:
- Gnarly One-Legged Cousin
- The Chewables
- Spirit Tone
- The Push Processors
