I’m feeling very eclectic this week. I’m all over the place with thoughts, ideas, possible stories and a plethora of potential projects. I have recently been obsessed with my current script and possible novel. So for some reason, I wanted to pose a few what if questions and what I thought the if would be. I woul;d very much like to see what everyone else has to add, so comments are going to be a big part of this weeks fanfare. So, I present to you, my current list of “what ifs.” I know what your thinking, but odds are no two of us will have the same what ifs. In fact, if we did, the answers would be as varied as there are great racks on women in the world. (yes, I had to toss that in, besides, makes a nice visual. Like saying don’t think of a white elephant, but as expected, you picture a white elephant)
Wow, did I ever digress.
So. What if…..
What if: Hendrix had lived another 40 years?
A: I think he would have played through the 70’s making some of the greatest electric funk ever heard, skipped the 80’s and re invented the 90’s musically.
What if: James Dean had lived?
A: We remember him as much as we remember Montgomery Cliff.
What if: T.E Lawrence had never met Feisal?
A: Arabia would be even more divided into small little Bedouin city states without a central government, and occupied by both the British and the Turks, even the Germans maybe.
What if: The American Indians put up a better fight and won?
A: This article would be written by “Chief Who Makes the Moving Images Work”
What If: Annie Oakley was a little less of a great shot?
A: WWI prolly woulda never happened. (yeah, I’ll let you look that one up)
What if: WWII never happened?
A: You’d know who Eiji Sawamura was.
What if: Tim Wakefield had taken a break earlier.
A: Dare I say it and risk the potential furor of crying and boo-hooing?
What if: Lincoln and the North didn’t win:
A: Lee would have abolished slavery anyway, as he would have succeeded Jefferson Davis, and since he was an abolitionist and only fought for the other side because he was a Virginia loyalist.
So folks. Lets have it. Your “What ifs. The twists that coulda been, the futures that didn’t happen. Lets hear it.
