    I have it on good authority that the hadrosaur mentioned above had coconuts glued to its tail and those were what the T-rex was really after.

    Sharknado gives me hope that one day one of my scripts will get optioned! I mean seriously, have you all seen this thing?

    It’s either the brilliant work of genius marketing gurus, or was written in a basement “apartment” with no ventilation, Funions, microwave burritos, mountain dew, bongs chock full of DRO, and on an old smith corona typewriter that the basement tenet begged his landlord mom to use.

    I watched it. I’m not proud.

    If your ever wondering how something like Sharknado gets made, here is a great video with insights into how Hollywood works. Warning this is Kevin Smith, so it includes vulgarity. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgYhLIThTvk
