"wha cha doing, ray?""I'm writing a movie.""you mean a screenplay? I think that's what those things are called in the business.""maybe.'"so what's it about?""four guys in a van. a dude that sells merch, a drummer, a guitar player and a cool older yet still quite handsome songwriter. one guy drives and the other three sleep.""that's the movie? an hour and a half of that?""well they stop for gas and coffee every now and then. its not really a silent film but there's no dialog as nobody ever says anything except, 'hey, quit snoring, I'm trying to sleep.'""I don't understand. what's the plot? the character development? the incentive for people to go see this film? its just driving and guys sleeping?""uh huh. cool, right? we tape a iPhone to the interior mirror and just turn It on and leave it till the battery runs down.?""why not plug it in so it keeps running?""what a stupid idea. then I'd have to figure out how to do that editing thing. too much trouble. I just take the hour and a half to fox searchlight and get a couple million dollars for it.""if that's all it is, why are you writing it? doesn't sound like a real screenplay. lemme see what you've written.. all you've written is 'tape iPhone to mirror and turn on video'...well, at least is there music in it?""of course not. too much paperwork.""so and hour and a half of a guy driving and three guys sleeping with no sound track. what's the name of the movie?""star war.""you can't use that.""sure I can. war ain't plural. ain't been copy written yet. you'd think those big shots woulda thought of that. google it. no singular 'star war'. smart huh. people will think its a sequel to those space movies that came out a long time ago. once they buy the ticket and figure it out..too late. what they gonna do? sue? I'll be long gone. run a alias..hide out in Taos.""damn. how do I invest in this.""well I gonna have to launder the money so go to raywylie.com and buy something.""okie dokie. count me in. you gonna sign off here with 'yours truly?'""nope. just raywylie.com."raywylie.comvoice over: "..and once again evil awakens and raises its scraggly head." ...

"zzzzz..zzzzz..snore..zzzzz.""wake up, ray. open your eyes! wake up.""huh? wha..hey, who are you?""I'm a ploy for you to write something here on this thing. you haven't been here in a while so this is a way to insinuate that you just been asleep rather than neglecting your sworn duty to be witty yet snarly when need be on this format thing here.""aw man, once I mention the merch page on raywylie.com there's no reason to do any thing else. so see what I just did..just mentioned it so now I'm out of here. adios.""no, wait. what about the gigs? you should talk about those.""what ya wanna know? Lafayette's in Memphis was great. was a wonderful audience..I played the j45 with the k&k pickup into a Laney amp and the dearmond toaster top pickup into a 65 deluxe, Lucas played the walnut 335 into a early 60's da vinci amp and a Gibson frontier into a fisherman loud box and Kyle did his cajon on steroids thing with a snare and tamborine and shaker stuff. we used the same contraptions at Eric churches new venue in Nashville last night..tobin dale sat in as did Payton dale and then that rascal Aaron lee tasjin got up for 3 songs and we were hotter and dirtier than the floors in hell. we doing again tonight and then to little rock at..at..(see above. you got to participate some while you here).""see? that wasn't so hard. I'm sure at least 30% of the people who started reading this at the beginning are still here.""yeah and they are probably sorry they are. I mean the gear we use? really? I don't care about that tech stuff, just give me the tone. so what now?""nothing more. you done.""let me sign off. over and out."ray wylie ... See MoreSee Less

You did so well on the first survey I have another one. It looks like the Oxblood shirt was the first choice by a landslide. It’s a dark blackish maroon. Which logo do you like best?Thanks!Mother Hubbard ... See MoreSee Less
