Toms River Steve (1:02:12 PM): oh, i know this is gonna sound like beating a dead horse, but do you remember that "defer" conversation that started the steveisms sight
theophilosophos (1:02:24 PM): yeah
Toms River Steve (1:02:41 PM): i found out i was right, and i can prove it.
Toms River Steve (1:02:47 PM): let me find the link i was looking for
Toms River Steve (1:03:12 PM): now i said that i defered everyone to my other screen name's away message........
Toms River Steve (1:03:41 PM): Dictionary.com/defer if you scroll down one of the definitions of defer is to submit to the opinion or wish of another, such as my other screen name
Toms River Steve (1:04:12 PM): i know i probably sound stupid bringing it back up, but i always had this feeling that i knew what i was typing
theophilosophos (1:04:38 PM): I feel like I'm part of a sequel or something.
Toms River Steve (1:04:45 PM): lol
Toms River Steve (1:05:34 PM): i decided a few days ago that if i ever make it big in hollywood or own my own film studio, i'm gonna fly you and craig out to california and we're going to remake GRADS for a nationwide release
theophilosophos (1:06:09 PM): that's cool. they usually use twenty-somethings to play high schoolers anyway
Toms River Steve (1:06:24 PM): so we'll fit right in
Toms River Steve (1:06:24 PM):
Toms River Steve (1:07:46 PM): this summer, i don't know if you and craig have any plans as far as staying in toms river or not, but me and my friend jeff are starting a movie script that we are gonna try and shoot this summer. there really aren't that many lead male roles, but there will be plenty of one or two scene characters. i want you and craig to appear in a scene with me, like a hidden tribute to GRADS
theophilosophos (1:08:09 PM): Steve, c'mon man
theophilosophos (1:08:38 PM): I put you as a star in a movie and all you can do is give a nod to us in "extra" roles?
Toms River Steve (1:09:31 PM): i'm not the sole writer, besides, there are only 3 leading males and they are taken by the three writing it. we had a third early in writing, we learned he's not as creative so me and jeff took over writing. but he still gets credit cause he's gonna fund a thrid of the movie
theophilosophos (1:09:47 PM): I understand. It seems only right to give you a fair shot at making a film.
Toms River Steve (1:11:03 PM): that movie i tried last summer is about 98% likely not to come out. cause there was a lot about it i wanted in it that i couldn't get in due to various time restraints and stuff
Toms River Steve (1:11:16 PM): like for example, i wanted you to play the smart austrailian gardener
theophilosophos (1:11:29 PM): yeah, I'm known for that role
Toms River Steve (1:11:39 PM): lol
Toms River Steve (1:12:02 PM): and there were about 5 other scenes. the movie could still have made sense with what i had, but it was not what i envisioned, so i didn't want to attach my name to that project
Toms River Steve (1:12:32 PM): so i've learned i always need at least an outline in place if i'm gonna be the one running something.
theophilosophos (1:13:02 PM): ...
theophilosophos (1:13:15 PM): you know, even if defer could be used in that way, you have to admit that "refer" is by far a better word choice
Toms River Steve (1:13:25 PM): it would be better
Toms River Steve (1:13:33 PM): but technically, no one was wrong with their word selection
theophilosophos (1:13:55 PM): I'll ask my English teacher
Toms River Steve (1:14:09 PM): all right
