BUSY BUSY BUSY

Many apologies for being so infrequent with my blog entries.
The reason is simply that I've been extremely busy with the film-- on both creative and business levels.

As a quick overview: The script is in great shape and we're putting finishing touches on a premilinary budget and schedule now. We're enjoying a ton of interest in the project, and I'm accordingly in lots of conversations throughout the film and music industires...

I'm sincerely hoping that I can stop being so cagey and reveal more/real details soon, but it's always been my nature to not talk about developments until things are truly settled, negotiated, etc.

So please continue to stay tuned, and thanks for all your support and interest! ...and I hope to be better about this blog in the future :)

Brian goofing around with Ringo at the Starkey weddingMr Tiwary has also made another comment in the forum section of the Fifth Beatle site, as follows:
Thanks! And the smallest trivia like that is also
so key in properly portraying Brian in my script!!
Everyone, please post away

I also glom onto whatever little tidbits I can about Brian...
On that note, what WAS his favorite brand of champagne?

*sigh* The eppylover is regretfully obliged to reply that she also does not know his favorite brand of champagne.
One of Brian Epstein's favorite drinks, next to champagne and teaHowever, he was extremely fond of Courvoisier cognac!
In Brian's day, this drink was looked upon much differently than it is today. Per the Wikipedia entry for Courvoisier:
Popular culture
This brand in particular has become part of African-American popular culture, modifying its image as a drink for upper class Britons.

The American rapper Busta Rhymes wrote a song "Pass The Courvoisier" in which he declares his preference for Courvoisier over Hennessy and Rémy Martin Cognacs and Cristal Champagne: "Give me the Henny, you can give me the Cris \ You can pass me the Remi, but the pass the Courvoisier."

Courvoisier is also known as being the favorite drink of Leon Phelps (a.k.a. The Ladies Man), an African-American character from a popular Saturday Night Live skit.

In the film Love and Death (1975), when told of Napoleon invading Russia, Boris (Woody Allen) queried, "What, did he run out of Courvoisier?"
