There’s quite a bit going on in the world of Noah’s Ark this morning, and I predict that there will be even more as the premiere of Aronofsky’s film approaches. I thought I would try to make it a regular thing on the Thimblerigs’s Ark blog to collect the stories that I find the most interesting, and link them here. Enjoy!
When I saw this, I laughed, because I’ve been trying to get Russell Crowe or Darren Aronofsky to notice Thimblerig’s Ark for the past couple of months, to no avail. And now, it seems he and Aronofsky are hoping the Pope will notice their film. I wonder who the Pope tweets, asking for favors?
Here’s my response tweet to Mr. Crowe:
I’m hoping that Mr. Crowe will be a believer in paying it forward, and will at least give the first three chapters of Thimblerig’s Ark a read. Wouldn’t it be cool if he read it, liked it, and helped promote it? And maybe the Pope would watch Noah, like it, and help promote it, too.
This game, made by the folks at PaperBigfoot, looks like it could be fun. And it’s a free download for your mobile phone, so why not?
I’ll bet they wish they could get a RT from the Noah film guys, too.
I have to admit, this trailer gets me more excited about the film. I’m starting to see the structure of the film, and it does seem to show that Aronofsky intends to show humanity’s overall wickedness and not just his violence against the earth. This should please the religious audience, and if the story is well told, it should also please the audience that isn’t interested in religion.
I had a similar goal with Thimblerig’s Ark, too. To help with that, I told my beta readers to be on the lookout for the “Four P’s”.
That’s all that I saw in the news this morning about Noah and the flood. I’m glad to NOT report on the ongoing stories where people are deciding not to see Aronofsky’s film because of what it may or may not contain, when most people haven’t seen it to know what it contains.
And remember, watch out for groundhogs playing con games! They’ll grift you every time.
