Tisher Price

Recommended Posts

​I had no idea where to put this topic so I put it under "general." If yr life up to this point was made into a film, what genre would it fall under?

 
Romantic Comedy
Sci Fi
Fantasy
Horror
Dark Comedy
Porn
Mystery
Drama
Musical
Film Noir
Historical Drama
 
I personally would find my life under the dark comedy section...is there a dark comedy session? Because if I took everything bad that happened to me, and took it too seriously, I would have lot the rest of my sanity.

Hmmmm...so which of these genres would a guy whose life might best be described as "A jack of all trades, but a master of none" fall under here?

 

Ya see Tisher, this would be the very reason IF they ever made a movie about MY life, nobody would go to see it, because I'm thinking in order to get a more realistic depiction of it AND depending upon the various times in my life, it would have to encompass almost every one of those genres you've just listed here.

 

(...and I think you probably know how people in general just can't get into and are often confused by movies which might fall into more than one or two of those various genres, now don't ya?!)

Okay AD, I get that you were an ex-waitress who met your ex-husband while in NYC and went through a nasty child custody battle, and now live in some kind of retirement facility where you wear WAY too much makeup for your age, but SURELY you're not old enough to have been a marathon dancer during The Great Depression, RIGHT?!!!

Hee. Well I was considering just saying "historical drama," and letting it go at that.

 

Maybe a bit more explanation is called for.  I had a great childhood sort of like the one in "A  Christmas Story," followed by the kind of early, carefree, impulsive flower child, marriage as seen in, "Barefoot in the Park."  That slid  into few years of  life as depressing as "They Shoot Horses Don't They," ending in a "Kramer vs Kramer," divorce and me living alone with my son like Alice did. Then a romantic comedy of a courtship followed by a new marriage and visits to meet our families in distant states.  They were uncannily like the visits Burt Reynolds and Goldie  Hawn made in "Best Friends,"  his eight sisters trying to make me over and my crazy mom coming in while we were in bed to give us more quilts.  The "Marigold Hotel," just gives a glimpse of our attempts to vacation in foreign lands, and "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane," is what I see approaching fast if I keep putting on red lipstick at home to cheer myself up.

LOL...some more here now.

 

And there's nothing wrong with older women wearing red lipstick, ya know AD. In fact, I think that's kind'a sexy!

 

(...just be sure to not apply the stuff out beyond your natural lip line too much, 'cause THAT'S when you ladies DO begin to look like Bette in that flick, ya know!)

Well, it's not on the list provided but my life would probably fall under Family Comedy.  I'm afraid my wife and I have had a pretty wonderful 35 years (next week!) together and while we and our kids have all had our myriad trials and tribulations we've managed to hold it all together with good humor.  If I were to cast the picture, ideally I would have wanted Dennis O'Keefe and Marjorie Reynolds to play me and my wife.  Billy Gray and Joan Carroll would be perfect as our kids.
