Got History?

New story… old story?

We’ve Got History +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

WGA 1501760

In progress:

Three single women trapped in the present lament their dating lives and long for a time when men were men and women didn’t aspire to be on reality tv shows.

Deb, Whitney and Marcie live normal lives, working jobs where they feel dispensable. They’re bored of the dating scenes where they live. Their prospects are bleak, and looking back on people they have history with proves nauseating.

Deb’s in LA- men are more into their Blackberries and Porsches than courtship. Whitney’s in New York where she tells Deb it’s not much better, where men get their nails done. Marcie’s in the burbs where guys watch sports and play video games instead of wooing. Moving to another city for a fresh supply of men isn’t going to make a difference.

Not that these women want to be princesses or characters in romance novels; they just want to date during ages where romance was part of life and so was actual living-feeling alive instead of being attached to gadgets, machines and screens all the time.

The women find the site and imagine hooking up with bad boys from the past; not their past, but history’s past.  Their imagination becomes real. Will they like being lost in time in their searches to be lost in love, or will they long to return to the “now”?

Will anyone notice they’re missing? Will going back in time give them what they want for the future?

Anniversary #125 this year:


WGA 1498820

This is a historical drama based on the autobiography of Albert Parsons and other materials that retell the events of the Haymarket bombing of May 4, 1886, the subsequent trial and executions of anarchists in America who fought for the eight hour work day.

The story centers on Parsons, who at age 13 fought for the CSA and later denounced his indoctrination, and his wife Lucy, an outspoken free woman of color who published articles, spoke to the public and led marches.

The film also focuses on Louis Lingg, a young German carpenter unionist who emigrated to Chicago and German language newspaper publisher August Spies. Lingg committed suicide in prison. Spies met his wife as a result of the conspiracy trial.  Four men were hung and buried in Waldheim Cemetery in Chicago.

What’s going on now in America? Unionists, boycotting, plutocracy… so familiar because it’s from history.

Yep, people still make stuff up to put people behind bars who they feel threatened by for one reason or another.
