Best, And By “Best” I Mean My Dreams Coming True: I Am Making A Movie
If you follow me on one of those social media things, chances are you’ve heard me mention that I’m making a movie. That process becomes a BUNCH OF FIREWORKS IN PUBLIC today with the launching of the Meet Me There teaser, IndieGogo page and happily urgent pleadings of yours truly.
I’ll let you read about it over there (because we need to hurry up and talk about Pancake Patterson), but Meet Me There is a horror/suspense film written by me, based on terrifying true stories of a childhood spent in small town Oklahoma from Destiny, and directed by Lex Lybrand, the guy who did Summer League. The fundraising page has a short video, and in the next few days we’ll add some footage of us talking about it, including me explaining my movie dreams and the reasons why we put everything together. I hope you’ll stop by and check it out.
And how is this relevant to readers of The Best And Worst Of WWE Raw, besides the fact that the guy who writes these columns wrote it? Because we’ve cast Dustin Runnels in a major supporting role. Yes, that Dustin Rhodes, aka Goldust, aka A Guy Who Was In The Royal Rumble This Year and legitimately one of my favorite pro wrestlers of all time. To make it have further Raw report relevancy, we’ve also cast comic book writer and illustrator Jill Thompson in a role, and she’s doing the art for our poster. If you don’t read comics, she’s the one who designs Daniel Bryan’s swank ring gear.
I’m not going to say anything melodramatic like IF YOU DON’T DONATE TO OUR THING I’M GOING TO STOP WRITING THESE REPORTS FOREVER or whatever, but we don’t ask you for money very often at With Leather, and you’d be doing something special for a guy who has watched and translated way, way too much bad wrestling for your enjoyment. Anything helps, but it helps more if you’re rich. Also, if you don’t contribute to this, I’m replacing the Best and Worst of Raw with a regular G.L.O.W. column and you won’t get ANY of the jokes.
I love you, and thank you for taking the time to peruse this page. Contribute early and often and we’ll be best friends. You’re getting a “thank you” in the credits, trust me.
