I want to be in a movie...

or perhaps a tv show. It's not what you're thinking, I swear. I don't want to be Brad Pitt or anything like that. What I mean is that I actually want to be put into a movie or a television show in the sense that my life would actually be interesting. I want to live within a prime time drama. I want that sort of life. Characters in movies and on television are interesting. They actually have lives. Crazy, unpredictable, sometimes unfathomable lives. Whatever the creator can think up, the character can live through.

Let's face it, life is boring as shit most of the time. But not on screen. Oh no, characters have lives. They have crazy relationships (which always comes with a mind-blowing sex life), tons of friends, the coolest careers, and when they get in trouble, even that is something wild enough to wonder what it would be like to live through. Hell, they even get a soundtrack. What do I have to do to get a soundtrack? I want music fully audible to those around me at all times, and I want it to change depending on my mood. When I'd, I want depressing music. When I'm skydiving, I want some ridiculous old school rock song with a thumping bass beat. When something bad happens, give me some ridiculous symphony.

Hell, I won't even be picky. I don't need some elaborate scenerio ala Lost or Heroes. Just give me lots of cool friends, a good career, and some of those television hotties to choose from when I feel like having a relationship or just a fling. Oh, and throw in some sort of ridiculous adversity that never happens so everyone worries about me and sympathizes and cares about the outcome and how I'm going to overcome it. Sure, I'm faced with adversity in real life, but no one ever seems to care, outside of parents. What I want is an audience. Yeah, that's right, an audience.
