I discuss how I've learned as a writer that a good romance story between Loree McBride and the real Brent Spiner would never work, due to their utter incompatibility.

A video entirely too long in the making about an anime I don't even remember at this point. I remember I liked it though, so there's that. There's basically nothing about this video I would do the same way now, but I feel like I couldn't just leave it half edited and un-uploaded...

Maurizio Zanfanti was a man who gained a reputation in Italy as the Romeo of Rimini. He was the type of man who normal women loved, men respected, some even wanting to be like him, and feminists hated. The life he lead is interesting and I thought we’d take a look at the man and his life.
God's Little Acre is a 1958 American film of Erskine Caldwell's 1933 novel of the same name. It was directed by Anthony Mann and shot in black and white by cinematographer Ernest Haller. Although the film was not released until August 1958, its production schedule is indicated as September 11 to late October 1957.
The film was as controversial as the novel, although unlike its source material there was no prosecution for obscenity. Though both book and film were laced throughout with racy innuendo calling into question the issue of marital fidelity, it was the film adaptation that may have been the more alarming because it portrayed a popular uprising, or workers' insurrection, in the Southern United States by laid-off millworkers trying to gain control of the factory equipment on which their jobs depended.
Philip Yordan was officially given credit for the screenplay, but it was actually by Ben Maddow. Since Maddow was blacklisted for his radical, and suspected, but unproven, Communist activities during the 1950s Red Scare, working without credit was the only way he could successfully submit screenplays. When it was first released, audiences under eighteen years of age were prohibited from viewing what were perceived to be numerous sexy scenes throughout, though in recent decades the film's scandalous reputation has diminished. After decades of neglect, the film was restored by the UCLA Film and Television Archive under the supervision of master restorer Robert Gitt. As part of Gitt's restoration, Yordan's name was replaced by Maddow's in the main title roll.
Cyrano de Bergerac is a 1950 drama romance film based on the 1897 French Alexandrine verse drama Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand.

The film was the first motion picture version in English of Rostand's play, though there were several earlier adaptations in different languages.
The 1950 film was produced by Stanley Kramer and directed by Michael Gordon. José Ferrer received the Academy Award for Best Actor for his starring performance as Cyrano de Bergerac. Mala Powers played Roxane, and William Prince portrayed Christian de Neuvillette.
