(a la the Conan O'brien segment...)

In The Year 2000...

"The Saga of Tuck" will become standard reading material for highschoolers, published under the title "Tucker". Utilizing permanent marker, many a young, aspiring artist will modify their text to read, "F#$%er".

And, like Kibo (mayhisnamebepraised), said young aspiring artists will later have the $#!+ scared out of them when they receive an email, from me (or my subordinate mailbots), saying "I know what you did, punk, and I don't think it's funny."

You are not the only one... I can remember BBSing back in the '80s. Back when multi-user boards were just starting to appear. Heck I was even a Sub-op on one... way back when a 300 baud external modem was still ok. I think I still have that laying around somewhere.

Kibo is the username of an internet super-user from WAY back.

Usenet is his universe. Those of us who have been around a while will recognize the name.

I sent my first e-mail over the internet in 1985. There were lots of ! characters in that address. That was WAY before the WWW! I guess I qualify as having been around a while Wink

Enjoy!


AAAAH! good old bangpath *basking in the glow of old memories* AOLers would never be able to figure them out.

Well I could see Tuck going into print, but why stop there. There could be a series of movies like Harry Potter. I bet there is a following out there that keeps growing with this story. It does have a good hook to start and keeps going.

The problem with that, is that I would be a complete prima donna about it, and demand absolute and total production control of such a movie. Which a studio is not going to let happen. And without that control, I will NOT let Hollywood dissect and gut Tuck for the mass market, no matter how much money they give me.

There's also the problem of casting. =) But that belongs in another topic-area...

There's no doubt about that. There are independent film makers who. if they liked the story, would be more willing to accept that sort of creative control.

As I understand it, J. K. Rowling refused to grant her permission for the Harry Potter stories unless she had creative control. The first Potter movie (I haven't seen the second, yet) was remarkably like the book, a rarity in Hollywood.

So, it IS possible, but not likely.

*grins* Yes, one that could be quite interesting.

I think a better thing to do with tuck than a live action movie would be an anime style OVA series. Yeah! Smile
