Today was learning about staff. Music note staff. Extension with staff. The small line you use in order to be able to extend the staff of already line-staff. Lower pitched notes go on the bottom of the staff; and higher-pitched notes go on the top off the staff. Five lines and four spaces prior to line extension with the staff. I found a lot of resource information to study learning more how to read music notes. Groovy. This helps me with the full length play I’m in the process of writing. So it’s treble clef action and bass clef. I tell you, if you learn to read music, you can learn many things artistically: design, shape, expression–and, of course, music, even learn to play an instrument if you haven’t played one before when you’ve just been writing music, per se. At least for me, I think, if I know the notes, it’ll be easier–like anyone else–to play an instrument. I just don’t know what instrument would be easier to play. Probably just pick up an instrument and try it. But learning to read music is somewhat like learning a formula. Like math. Math has formula. Music’s kind of like algebra. The older I get…math is pretty cool. That’s if you can be patient with it. This is going to be kewl…learning reading music. I’ve got some printed blank staff sheets–and access to music symbols, some music dictionaries, and more inclusive music theory. But what’s cool, too, is you don’t have to be extremely skilled in music theory to play music well. This is just me and wanting to learn reading music, writing it for my creative work; and it doesn’t hurt either to learn how to play an instrument. I need to tell myself that. It’s fun writing music. I mentioned earlier that writing music is like writing poetry, as the process is somewhat similar. So we’ll see what happens. 🙂
Vacillating with titles for the first screenplay–and have a somewhat of a title for a second screenplay in which I’m starting to also gather information on the second screenplay dealing with the military, as mentioned in an earlier posting with military strategies. A trip back to the cemetery for one late grandfather and trying to find out where he was specifically listed during his four year listing time in the Army. He spent much of his life, I’m finding in California and personal living time in Placer County. I’ll be contacting Fort Sill soon. I have a late uncle who spent time as a Master Sergeant in the Army, and I’m also wondering how much time he spent in the Navy and Marines. So I’ll also be contacting Fort Sill Cemetery, probably the City of Lawton, etc. Another late grandfather spent time in the service, the Marines; and I’m still researching how much involvement, if any, he had in either the Navy and/or Marines. I have about 245 years of military history to work with. The family backdrop is a potential guide to seeing more of the direction I would like for the script. I have notes on locations, local and historical, diverse strategy emphasis, defense mechanisms, military law/lawyers. I’m not sure how much I really want to touch on with law–as much about law is in my first screenplay. I’m wanting to interview commanders, generals, university professors; and with the recent findings of what I am–sixty percent American Indian (thirty percent Apache and thirty percent Navajo), ten percent English, ten percent Spanish and twenty percent with five percent each French, German, Italian, and African American with letters to sift through, papers, etc., it’ll be a fulfilling and obviously new creative project for me. I had a feeling there would be, perhaps, some Italian within the French name of Vinez. Vinez comes from the paternal side of my family–not too far down the line. Any how, this brings me to several potential inclusive locations to think about outside of the local areas like McClellan AFB, an important base during its prime and looking into the area of it where one of my late grandfather’s worked. P.S. I’ve just had on 4/17/17, per Federal and The Pentagon, et al, people changing my changing my nationality, literally on my blog, which is…wouldn’t you think illegal to do?, especially with “she’s a fraud!” (Computer Terminals 3 and 4 of “Y” in my court-purchased property with Federal government.) My line: Good luck.
Cyberstalkive and in-person body piercings still continue to also avoid what the guilty owe me monetarily, etc.–the Obama, Brown, Gates, Manson, Cocoran, San Quentin, all illegal endorsed prisons, et al, with involved guiltyville group.
The good thing is I have so much room to explore, not really knowing everything I want to put into the script yet; but the good thing is what I want to focus on a blend of both historical military and current military strategy, not just defense. I hope this experience finds me touring some military bases, military universities, learning a bit more about military life–varieties of it–the focus and dedication of military strategy and what those strategies encompass—maybe additional links to them. So for now, it’s the beginning…asking questions in infancy, researching, and trying to gain some ground on it. 🙂
Got permission for questions and more research-based inquiries for first screenplay. More note-taking: History configured. Got some good links about female sportswriters during the WWII. I’m diagramming. And I was thinking of synthesizing, perhaps, something to do with textiles–animal textiles, maybe criminal related–recalling that manmade and natural are of textile. Plant equals cotton. Silk and wool equal animal. The cotton interests me as well, thinking back to Goodyear, Arizona and Levelland, Texas. I lived in back of a cotton field in Texas. There’s a family background of cotton pickers who worked cotton fields in Goodyear, Arizona. Interesting…I’m thinking. More to explore about this. The judicial system, probably higher court, meaning researching more the Superior Appellate Court interests me. So much to consider–which makes it easier, actually, to narrow the focus, and, at the same time, work in an organized yet multi-dimensional way. A lot to consider rural and urban ethics, landscape, sports organizations/associations, women’s and men’s writing during that time, not competition-wise. Historics vs. contemporary pursuits with the type of writing, additional obstacles, and the learning environment is interesting. Not so much a section-focus on masculine/feminine writing, more like the interest of why they write and why they like to write what they do and where their writing takes them, especially unexpectedly. This is just some brainstorming questioning/researching. What interests me, too, is people within the Associations/Organizations running it and what Hall of Fame means for some individually and collectively and as a society. Decade, time frame issues also interest me. I’m not just limiting to textiles.So I’m looking at, perhaps, in draft, the history of each integrated subject–sports, landscape, courthouses, judicial figures, sportswriters, sports journalism, textiles, the type of crime–and there will be more, I’m sure, to consider. So cheers to… Insofar. 🙂
