Subject: [Crime Fiction] name game

hi all, I just wanted to write in response to JEC's message
about my name. The Ullyot/Eliot thing does not fly, and I am
going to ditch it asap; my agent told me it is needlessly
confusing, and perhaps pretentious, and I am happy with all
Eliot all the time for all media and acting projects: though
in the law books, in the university, and to many of you, I
will always be JU.

so all Jonathan Eliot all the time, from hereon in, sorry for
the confusion; no Ullyot was ever involved in a film called
"Crime Fiction," and never will be

i am meeting with some lit agents here and also trying to make
contacts with some people who know the ins and outs of how to
get into festivals. toronto FF is v. democratic

CFPLLC branch office, 7:15p [Jul. 11th, 2005|07:11 pm]
Don Lee Boone's production diary

Ballou stopped by the 4620; we dragged over the wicker chairs on the veranda.

Cellphones go off, we get another investor, laptops come out, we start comparing notes on our first readings of what just may be our next project, and end up in a howling argument about TorontoMontreal-vs-L.A.-vs-Paris (Paris?...) for Crime Fiction's new office circa 2007, and all on our first round of cream sodas.

Is it that we are unable to separate business from pleasure, or that we just don't have anything else to talk about?

We are all being stalked [Jul. 9th, 2005|11:06 am]
Don Lee Boone's production diary

Will and I, and possibly our producers, are being stalked.

In the last twenty-four hours, Will has received several mysterious phone calls from an unidentified cell phone number determined to be from Arlington County, VA. When he asked repeatedly who in fact had called him, he did not receive a response although the other party knew HIS name.

I have also received two mysterious phone calls from an unidentified 312 area code number that when I pick up the phone results only in the playing of music in the background. It is not known at this time whether or not this person knows my name. Mr. Cowperthwait sent a cryptic text message to the number late last night in hopes of shedding some light, but there was no response.

And also quite mysteriously, a black Volkswagen Jetta pulled slowly past our veranda an uncountable number of times (at least six) where Will, Cowp, Ballou and myself were enjoying late-night mimosas yesterday evening. Perhaps, as Cowp observed, "the Kremlin has gone really low-profile, huh." Russian spies? Is there more to the Menses clan than James Cooper revealed? And why are they coming after us?

JON stands at an ironing board, shirtless, where he has been ironing a shirt. KIRSTEN, hair wrapped in a towel, sits at the dining room table before a bowl of children's cereal. They are both temporarily distracted by a news article displayed on a laptop at the end of the table.

               (reading from the screen)
     'Budgeted at $62,000, "Crime Fiction"
     has its creators rev--

     --reveling in the possibility of a hit.'

They laugh. Jon leans over the ironing board to slap a high-five.
