I am combining my two blogs into this one, The Clydesdale Project.
From the beginning, my focus here was to see if a big guy could lose weight via cycling. I then learned a bit about nutrition and started to lose weight. Then, I started running. I have really treated all of these things more like hobbies than permanent lifestyle changes. That doesn't work for me. My old habits continue to creep in unless I am very focused. So, the Clydesdale Project and my effort must continue on.
I certainly intend to keep the focus here on exercise, health, races, etc. That is what most of you are focused on as well. But I will also add in a few random stories and ideas that interest me and maybe some of you.
I play a game with my kids that we call "Made-Up Movie". Actually, I stole it from Adam Carolla's radio show that he used to do.
The idea is that you basically create an idea for a movie that could potentially be pitched to Hollywood. I am not in the business and not interested in being a writer for a living, so the ideas go nowhere outside of our family...until now. From time to time, I will blog about one of our many made-up movie ideas.
Some of these ideas will include casting suggestions. Some will be prequels or sequels. They all are formulaic, meaning that I am not reinventing story structure here. They may seem to be cliche or similar to typical movie genres. That's the point.
But I bet you would want to see these movies, if they were at your local theater!
We see so many tired movie plots getting greenlit in Hollywood that we started thinking that we could come up with equal or better plotlines. It's just an updated version of the cavemen sitting around the fire.
(P.S. Does anyone know how I can transport the old blog posts into this blog without dumping them all into our current date? I'd rather just somehow insert them into the historic dates as they were written. ???)
