        l went with zombie outbreak. l think it was used previously but l wasn't involved then, and l have a gritty, splashy little idea that l'm hungry to write.

          The way things are going, we may just go with all the themes that get at least one vote.

          Everything is so distributed, even if something should get say 3 votes, more than that will have chosen something else.

                  I think i have at least.... an idea for below the surface. Creature feature is amoung my all time favorite genre for films ( i may have suggested it as a genre), and eco horror is something ive always wanted to dabble in ( garbage man is great for that sort of inspiration). Anyway you put it im pumped for this write off

                    I'm in....

                    This will be as good an excuse as any to find and register the word processing program on my laptop. I tried to use it when I first bought the laptop, but microsoft wants this stupid 25 digit code and I'll be damned if I can find it in any of the laptop's onscreen manuals. You would think that the manufacturer would just put it on actual ink and paper and put it in plain sight so a person wouldn't have to beat the e-bushes for hours at a time trying to find the damned thing. You would think the manufacturer would provide an actual ink and paper manual. You could think that until the cows come home and your brain turned to overheated paste....but you'd be wrong. Dead Wrong!

                      Reading this I started thinking about the movie "In The Mouth Of Madness".

                      There's prolly a story in there somewhere where a person looking at multiple sources for obscure and arcane information to validate the user key on some program drives themselves mad with forbidden knowledge...

                        So far it looks like Creature Feature is winning. I've got a couple of ideas in mind.

                          Writing starts Monday for 6 weeks and... once again I'll be on a trip, to Oregon this time for Mother's Day.

                          The deadline would be the 6th to turn in, but I'm leaving the 8th, so I wouldn't really be able to post them, but I get back the Monday after that, so if we just extend things and make the turn in deadline any time on the 14th, the Tuesday after, then I can start posting on that Wednesday (the 15th) and no more worries.

                          I'll be gone those last 6 days for any questions or to confirm receipt of the stories, but if they're any problems due to that, then it'll be on me and anyone will get any time needed to get a usable copy to me, just so long as I got at least a garbled one as proof of a timely submission.

                          That all sound okay to everyone?

                            I can't make heads or tails out of what you just wrote. Writing starts Monday, which Monday? Deadline on the 6th...or the 14th....is this April or May? Okay six weeks from some Monday or other with a due date on possibly the first or maybe the second week of some month that is probably May. Gotcha. So we're doing Creature Features? I mean nothing was said, but I looked at the poll and it appears that Creature Features received the most votes. I could be wrong. God knows I've been wrong a few times. What's the minimum/maximum length for submissions? Can I make racist remarks and kill babies? Can I make disparaging remarks about homosexuals and kill babies? Can I make fun of the disabled, particularly as it involves itself with baby killing? How about sex? is there a limit as to how much sex can be packed into a given story between, say, making fun of the Hebs and the feebs and those flannel-wearing lezbo toddler crushers and just your plain old average run of the mill good old American baby killing? Is pedo sex allowed at all? What about bestiality? how can you have a good Creature Features story without a little bestial pedo sex to spice things up? And what about France? Can the story be set in France? Nothing supernatural ever happens in France. How strange is that? maybe it has something to do with Jean d'Arc. Let's blame it on her.

                              Whats the theme? Earlier it was stated that we might go with any theme that got a vote. On that note, l would like to change my vote to Below the Surface, which ties it with Creature Feature. Also, l'm with Jack on the whole killing babies thing. Need to know if that's kewl.
