Mr. Ian M. Belcurry

My name is Brian McElmurry. I like literature and skateboarding. My novella Rocket Man was recently published as an Ebook by Thought Catalog

James Franco, will you adapt my novella into a play while I skate to the cave

I saw ppl dressed up in cos play on the Internet and thought reality is horrible.

The metaphorical cave in the forest is not looking at the Internet.

James Franco will you please make a play of my noir/druggy novella?

I saw a picture of James Franco and Lana Del Rey at Cooney Island on the James Franco’s Facebook and I thought they looked really cool.

My whole Facebook feed is skateboarding now because I want to skate to the cave.

Mountain meadows seem nice, also.

But my novella-play adaption, James, I think it could be sort of A Long Days Journey Into Night, but with weed and heroin and codependence.

The play when I originally read it ten plus years ago didn’t resonate, but visiting my family I feel the echo.

My book takes place in an apartment in a Victorian mansion too, like…

I’m already bored of that thought.

Though its good, James: are you a fan of Somerset Maugham and James Cain, both dialogue and adaptive friendly influences.

Most of life seems more acts done in the cause of maintaining life.

I like Buddhism because it sees we all suffer and need some empathy and compassion.

This is a horrible poem.

I think the cos players are cool, just to clarify.

Evening walk with dogs. Barked at by chihuahua at first shot, who had escaped yard and I took a left at street to draw dog back in front of house instead of pushing away from house. Neighborhood of Jefferson Park in Denver between Spear and Federal and Colfax, a corner no one would go unless you live there, but near downtown, across the freeway and river. Tiny weird houses being torn down and 5 town homes being put up on the lots. No backyards. I live in a quadplex, 1-bedroom with my wife. We have an area for the dogs, we put on a cord because no full fence. It is a rapidly changing neighborhood.

Fat Bill kills it as always, so much radness in this edit.

Tyshawn and Sage footage is incred!

Candy bars cost more than a dollar

I hadn’t enough money for a coffee or a candy bar
Dollar something in cash and on my card
The dog chewed my new book and the Tuperwear container of weed (weed still intact)
There’s not enough hours in the day or money
Pay day tomorrow and drunkenness to follow
My memory forgets pain but when you are ‘damaged goods’—
All are I guess

"This is a picture that i’d like to have shown at my funeral you know you have photos of the person that died. This shows me in one of the happiest times of my life. Just young stoked on surfing and about as happy as a kid could be. Pop pier was a perfect place to start surfing at. We had plenty of surf and Pop had a few different spots to surf at." - Jay adams
