Share this with your friends on FaceBook

THIS IS MR Z AT 'ELIT TV'......WE INTRODUCE YOU FOLKS TO THE FOLKS WHO ARE THE WRITERS.......

MR Z:  FOLKS TODAY WE HAVE AN INTERVIEW THAT I WOULD HAVE TO CALL A 'FIRST' IN THE HISTORY OF LITERARY FICTION, AN INTERVIEW WITH AN AUTHOR AND HIS OR HER MAIN CHARACTER....LADIES AND GENTLEMAN......LET'S GIVE A CLAP TO THE AUTHOR MARCUS DINO AND THE MAIN CHARACTER IN HIS HOLLYWOOD NOVEL FIFI.......MARCUS DINO AND FIFI LAROUCHE.............

(AUDIENCE CLAPS)

MARCUS: (SITTING ON THE LEFT SIDE OF MR Z): THANK YOU MR Z.......

FIFI: I AM SO TRULYTRULTRULYTRULYTRULY HAPPY TO BE HERE.  MARCUS IT'S NICE SEEING YOU AGAIN   MR Z  THANK YOU FOR INVITING MARUS AND I.......THIS MAY BE A FIRST BUT I FEEL YOU'LL SEE A TREND OF AUTHORS BEING INTERVIEWED WITH THEIR CHARACTERS.......FOLKS AND  FOLKSESSES I'M JUST SO HAPPY TO MEET ALL OF YOU........

MR Z:  (SMILING) THANK YOU FIFI FOR YOUR LOVELY INTRODUCTION.  SO...... MARCUS.........TELL ME WHAT MADE YOU.....A MAN..........WRITE A HUMOROUS NOVEL ABOUT A YOUNG WOMAN?  PERHAPS FIFI REMINDED YOU ABOUT SOME SOME GIRL YOU KNEW WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER?

MARCUS: WELL...............

FIFI: ..................WAIT A MINUTE.........MARCUS I DIDIN'T MEAN TO INTERRUPT..............ARE YOU SAYING IT'S WRONG THAT A MAN WRITE A NOVEL WHERE THE MAIN CHARACTER IS A WOMAN?

MR Z: ABSOLUTLEY NOT...........I'M NOT EVEN SURE IF I WILL CALL YOUR STORY CHICKLIT GENDRE................I'M ONLY ASKING IF YOU REMIND HIM OF SOME WOMAN OR GIRL IN HIS LIFE HE KNEW OR CURRENTLY KNOWS....................NOW I DO WANT TO ADD THAT IT IS A VERY RARE THING TO SEE A MALE TODAY WHOSE MAIN CHARACTER IS  A HEROINE EVEN THOUGH I SEE NOTHING WRONG WITH IT............

FIFI: (SMIRKING, MARCUS IS SITTING BACK SMILING AS THE DIALOGUE BETWEEN FIFI AND MR Z CONTINUE) OH PLEASE YOU KNOW MR Z I DON'T MEAN TO BE FORWARD BUT I WOULD HAVE TO CONSIDER YOU A BIT SEXIST OR A BIT OF A MALE CHAUVINIST.......LOOK AT ALL THE FAMOUS FEMALE LITERARY CHARACTERS IN THE PAST...........CINDERELLA, SLEEPING BEAUTY, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, SNOW WHITE, GIDGET, ................SUPERGIRL........HECK..........EVEN ...LOLITA.........AND THAT...............LADY CHATTERLY OR WHATEVER HER NAME WAS WERE ALL WRITTEN BY MEN.  SO MARCUS MR Z FEELS YOU SHOULD WRITE A NOVEL ABOUT SOME TOUGH YOUNG SKATER WHO PARTIES ALL DAY AND HAS ALL KINDS OF GIRLFRIENDS AND NEVER WORKS OR SOME MACHO PRIVATE EYE TYPE WHO BEATS ALL THE GUYS UP AND GETS ALL THE GIRLS AND DOESN'T REALLY HAVE A BRAIN IN HIS HEAD..............

MR Z: (LAUGHING AND PUTTING HIS HANDS UP): FIFI........PLEASE.......I'M NOT SAYING THAT AT ALL.......I LOVE THE IDEA THAT A MAN SUCH AS MARCUS CAN POTRAY A WOMAN LIKE YOU SO WELL.............

MARCUS: CAN I FINALLY SAY SOMETHING.........I WANT TO ADD AND EVEN YOU PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED MR Z  THAT FIFI IS NOT CHICLIT.........FIFI HERE IS THE MAIN CHARACTER BUT THERE ARE MANY MANY STRONG MALE CHARACTERS IN FIFI......JERRY HER AGENT, CHARLES HER FATHER, BIFF HER BOYFRIEND........FIFI , DESPITE  THE FEMININE SOUNDING NAME OF THE TITLE, IS A BOOK I WROTE THAT ANY MALE WOULD ENJOY READING AS MUCH AS ANY FEMALE.......AND THAT'S INCLUDING YOUNG BOYS WHO COULD EMULATE CHARACTERS SUCH AS BIFF AND CAN RELATE TO FIFI'S AMBITIOUS GOALS TO BE A FAMOUS ACTRESS.........I MEAN WHAT YOUNG MAN DOESN'T ASPIRE TO BE A FAMOUS ACTOR OR ATHLETE.......I KNOW I ONCE WANTED TO BE A FAMOUS ACTOR.............NOW WHILE IT IS RARE TODAY SEE A MAN WRITE A NOVEL WHERE THE LEAD CHARACTER IS FEMALE I AM WRITING FIFI BECAUSE EVERY SUCCESFUL WRITER SHOULD BE COMFORTABLE WITH THEIR CHARACTER'S................PERSONA...........AND I'M SO USED TO FIFI'S...............PERSONA..............THAT I MAKE HER THE MAIN CHARACTER IN MY BOOK AND STORIES.........IN OTHER WORDS I'M JUST SO COMFORTABLE WITH HER CHARACTER AND SHE JUST HAPPENS TO BE A YOUNG WOMAN.........

FIFI: ACTUALLY MR Z MARCUS IS MOST COMFORTABLE ABOUT WRITING ABOUT ME BECAUSE I'M HIS GUIDE AND I TALK TO HIM THRU HIS RIGHT BRAIN SO HE GETS ALL HIS STORIES FROM ME.......HE'S REALLY A GLORIFIED TYPIST.......RIGHT MARCUS?

MR Z: (LAUGHING) MOST ENTERTAINING...........MARCUS I ALSO WANT TO ADD ANOTHER GREAT NOVEL WRITTEN BY A MALE AUTHOR  WHOSE CENTRAL CHARACTER WAS  FEMALE.  OF COURSE I'M TALKING ABOUT THE FAMED NOVELIST  STEPHEN KING AND HIS HORROR CLASSIC CARRIE ........

FIFI: THERE YOU GO Z..............ALL THESE MEN WHO HAVE WRITTEN BOOKS AND STORIES ABOUT GIRLS OR WOMEN AND THEY'RE JUST AS GOOD AS ANY FEMALE OR 'CHICLIT' LITERATURE WRITTEN BY ANY WOMAN........I ALSO THINK WE SHOULD LOOK AT A GREAT EXAMPLE ON OTHER END OF THE SPECTRUM...........HOW ABOUT PERHAPS THE GREATEST FICTION STORIES EVER WRITTEN ABOUT A BOY...............ALL THE HARRY POTTER BOOKS.........AND WASN'T THAT WRITTEN BY A WOMAN?  WOULD YOU CALL THE POTTER SERIES BOOKS FOR BOYS JUST BECAUSE THE MAIN CHARACTER IS A MALE?

MR Z: (SHAKING HIS HEAD AND SMILING AT FIFI) ABSOLUTELY NOT. 

FIFI: WELL THERE YOU GO.......

MR Z: (LOOKS AT FIFI AND THEN LOOKS AT MARCUS AND SMILES) MARCUS YOU'RE AWFULLY QUIET.............(AUDIENCE LAUGHS)

FIFI: (STARES AT MR Z): OHHHHHHHHH I KINDA GET THE DRIFT......YOU THINK I TALK TOO MUCH......ALLRIGHT MARCUS I'LL JUST KEEP QUIET AND LET YOU AND MR Z TALK.......

MR Z: BACK TO MY ORIGINAL QUESTION MARCUS.  WAS THERE ANY ONE WOMAN OR GIRL IN YOUR LIFE WHOM YOU WOULD CALL A 'MODEL' WHEN YOU CREATED FIFI.

MARCUS: WELL..............

FIFI: ( INTERRUPTING AGAIN, MR Z SHAKES HIS HEAD AND SMILES WHILE THE AUDIENCE CHUCKLES) WELL THERE MUST BE LIKE A 'HUNDRED' MODELS WHOM MARCUS WAS THINKING ABOUT WHEN HE CREATED ME, RIGHT MARCUS?  I'M LIKE A COMBINATION OF A NUMBER OF GIRLS AND WOMEN HE KNEW BUT AGAIN I NEED TO POINT OUT TO YOU ONCE HE CREATED ME THE SPIRIT WORLD SENT ME AN ENTITIY JUST LIKE HIS FIFI CHARACTER DOWN TO 'TALK 'TO HIS RIGHT CEREBRUM SO NOW HE DOESN'T HAVE TO MAKE ANY STORIES UP.........I JUST TELL HIM ALL THE STORIES......

MR Z JUST STARES AT FIFI: .........YOU SAY............YOU'RE........AN 'ENTITY'.............FROM THE 'SPIRIT WORLD'.................AND YOU GIVE MARCUS ALL HIS...........CREATIVITY.....................................................

FIFI: ABSOLUTELY...........I MEAN NOTHING AGAINST MARCUS HE'S A REALLY INTELLIGENT GUY BUT HE'S NOT TOO CREATIVE.............HE WOULD WRITE SOMETHING LIKE........'SEE JANE MEET JIM AT THE TRAIN STATION AND THEY GO OFF TO THE MOVIES TOGETHER'......BORING BORING..............THE OLD MAN SPENDS ALL OF HIS TIME SNORING.........BECAUSE OF ME MARCUS HAS DEVELOPED A CHARACTER WITH A LOT OF SPICE, A LOT OF PIZAZZ............

MR Z...............FASCINATING (LOOKS AT MARCUS) MARCUS.......(THEN LOOKS AT FIFI THEN QUICKLY LOOKS AT MARCUS AGAIN)........MARCUS.....(THE AUDIENCE BURSTS OUT LAUGHING)....DO YOU PLAN TO WRITE A SEQUEL TO FIFI.............

MARCUS: PERHAPS............

FIFI: I CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION: (MR Z STARES AT THE GROUND AND SHAKES HIS HEAD WHILE THE AUDIENCE AND MARCUS LAUGH HYSTERICALLY)......................OF COURSE MARCUS PLANS TO WRITE A SEQUEL..............IT MAY BE MORE GRAPHIC NOVEL LIKE THAN TRADITIONAL NOVEL LIKE BECAUSE THESE GEN Y KIDS INCLUDING THE GIRLS DON'T LIKE TO USE THEIR RIGHT CEREBRUMS AND THEIR IMAGINATIONS LIKE OLD GENERATIONS DID.......THEY LIKE SEEING MORE PICTURES.............BUT I HAVE NO DOUBT THERE WILL BE A SEQUEL.........THERE WILL BE SEVERAL SEQUELS.........I MEAN HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU FIND IN THE IMAGINARY OR EVEN THE REAL WORLD WHO ARE MORE INTERESTING THAN ME?...........NOT TOO MANY.........SO I HAVE A LOT OF MY STORIES TO TELL FOR THESE PEOPLE TO READ...................

MR Z JUST STARES AT FIFI A FEW SECONDS A SMILE..........FIFI...........I CAN'T THINK OF ANYBODY IN THE IMAGINARY OR REAL WORLD RIGHT NOW  WHO IS MORE ENTERTAINING THAN YOU...........(THE AUDIENCE CHUCKLES)

FIFI JUST SMILES AND WINKS AT MR Z WITH HER RIGHT EYE:......WELL..........THERE YOU GO AGAIN........

MR Z CLAPS HIS HANDS: ALLRIGHT QUESTIONS FROM THE AUDIENCE FOR EITHER MARCUS OR FIFI.................

ATTRACTIVE YOUNG BLONDE SITTING IN THE BACK OF THE AUDIENCE: I HAVE A QUESTION FOR FIFI..........HOW DID YOU OR MARCUS COME UP WITH THE NAME FIFI?  I MEAN THAT'S THE NICKNAME I GIVE TO MY CAT........ISN'T THAT A POPULAR NAME FOR PETS?  I DON'T KNOW ANY PERSON WHOSE NAME IS FIFI...........

FIFI: (STARES AT THE GIRL FOR A FEW MINUTES WITH A SMIRK ON HER FACE WHILE THE AUDIENCE CHUCKLES) AND WHAT MY DEAR IS YOUR NAME?

YOUNG BLONDE: EMILY

FIFI: OHHHHHHHH EMILY EMILY SUCH A NICE NAME...........I HEAR IT'S A VERY POPULAR NAME FOR GIRLS JUST LIKE..........MATHEW IS A POPULAR NAME FOR BOYS...........MARCUS MAKE SURE YOUR NEXT NOVEL IS TITLED EMILY MEETS MATHEW........(THE AUDIENCE LAUGHS).....I'M SURE IT'LL BE A BIG HIT WITH SUCH CATCHY NAMES IN  THE TITLE.....

I'M SORRY EMILY BUT I THINK YOU'RE WRONG ABOUT FIFI BEING JUST A POPULAR NAME FOR PETS.......IT'S LIKE A NAME USED FOR ANYTHING......HURRICANES.......PERFUME CONTESTS...........FAMOUS WORLD WAR 2 AIRPLANES...........EVEN MEN......SOME TOUGH MAFIA GANGSTER WAS ACTUALLY NAMED FIFI...........AND YES EMILY.......THERE ARE A FEW FAMOUS WOMEN BESIDES ME NAMED FIFI.............A WELL KNOWN FRENCH CANADIAN BACK IN THE 30S WAS NAMED FIFI D'ORSAY..... FIFI IS ALSO A POPULAR PET NAME FOR JOSEPHINE..........

ANNNNNNNYWAYS......EMILY.......MY CHRISTIAN NAME IS CHERYL.....DO YOU THINK IF SAY THE TITLE OF THIS BOOK WAS CALLED CHERYL IT WOULD SOUND MORE CATCHIER THAN FIFI? DO YOU THINK CASTING DIRECTORS AND HOLLYWOOD PRODUCERS AND DIRECTORS REMEMBER THE NAME CHERYL LAROUCHE AS OPPOSED TO FIFI LAROUCHE.......WOULDN'T THEY THINK OF THAT GIRL WITH THE CORNY FRENCH POODLE SOUNDING NAME IF A ROLE CAME UP FASTER THAN WHAT'S HER NAME? CHERYL?.........

 EMILY EVEN IF NO OTHER WOMAN ON EARTH WAS NAMED FIFI I WOULD STILL USE IT BECAUSE IT'S THE NAME THAT MY CRAZY ECCENTRIC FATHER GAVE ME AS A CHILD AND IT'S A NAME THAT I LOVE......I NEED TO STAND OUT........I MEAN I JUST CAN'T BE A CHERYL OR AN EMILY OR..............A MARY...............MARY MARY QUITE DULL AND CONTRARY.............HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW?  I AM FIFI...........(AUDIENCE LAUGHS WHILE APPLAUDING)

MR Z: (LAUGHING) FIFI AND MARCUS IT WAS A PLEASURE HAVING YOU BOTH AND WE WOULD CERTAINLY LIKE TO HAVE YOU BOTH UP HERE IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE TO DISCUSS ANY UPCOMING PROJECTS OR EVENTS YOU ARE DOING RIGHT AUDIENCE.....(AUDIENCE CLAPS OUT LOUD).......

NOW MARCUS CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE MORE NEXT TIME AND FIFI.............(AUDIENCE LAUGHS)...........CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE LESS AND LET MARCUS HAVE HIS SAY NEXT TIME?

FIFI: YOU ARE JUST SO FUNNY MR Z......MARCUS YOU NEED TO SPEAK UP TO THESE PEOPLE MORE TIME LIKE THE MAN SAID.....NICE MEETING YOU MR Z AND ALL YOU PEOPLE...........................

MARCUS: THANK YOU FOR INVITING US TO YOUR SHOW AND IT WILL BE A PLEASURE FOR FIFI AND I TO COME BACK....(HE WAVES TO THE AUDIENCE........FIFI AND MARCUS TALK TO MR Z WHILE THE CREDITS ROLL)
