I got a phone call... Not not ordinary, from an "unknown number".. Thought nothing of it, back to the rat race, being a punk, and earning my measly 70,000 a year...( peanuts)..
I listen, my heart gets still, fear, excitement, happiness, despair hits my heart.. All at once...
When a big time producer/ director calls you... You feel it. From your balls to your gut.. You feel it.
" Perkman, I heard good things about you l, ******* ja** is vouching for you, speaks highly of you, I got him his first network show, he was my intern 15 years ago... I'd love to have a meeting and discuss your script, and you working for our network.
I'm not gonna lie, I froze, a tear came to my eye.. I thought it was a prank. Surreal, called back, it's his rica the secretary, his real number... Wow..
I'm not going to lie,it would have behooved me to unequivocally leave ubersite, but won't.. I insist on staying. Thank you guys, for being harsh, for being encouraging, for being daring, for being you.. I learned to have balls here, follow my heart here, and write here. And though your harsh criticism heart me, it made me stronger, like a muscle being worked out, and beaten harshly, with max reps.. Uber ain't for the faint of heart,only a decade of writing, but from what I hear in Hollywood, " your way early", i guess so..
I have a fear of not posting here anymore, when I start getting the checks... But I don't know, you're a part of me, and a treasure all of you, even the ones that hate ol' perk.. Hope to one day win you over.. Since, as my professor at Cal told me, " anything can be negotiated, and anyone can be won over"... In getting their lassies and fella's.. In getting their. Now per our ritual like the " Native American, savages we are" ream and destroy me.. It's our ritual, and I''m a proud brother of our uber fraternity... Love yah, and hate you pricks.. Thanks.
