Continuation from yesterday’s post:
Do you remember the game we all played as teenagers, Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon? In this game you try to link yourself to Kevin Bacon using no more than 6 connections. The connections could be almost anything but eventually it was via someone who worked in a film or dated Kevin Bacon. In honor of today’s Weekly Writing Challenge: Cliffhanger! Because I prefer to take a lighthearted approach to things, my cliffhanger post is in the theme of the Kevin Bacon game except I am connecting myself to Sylvester Stallone. Trust me, you don’t want me to try to write a fiction novel, poetry or even limerick, they would be TERRIBLE! So here goes nothing, if I counted right I’ve got it within 5 connections.
Starting place: Me! Well duh, you knew this was where it would start!
Connection #1: Stephanie. Steph left home a few years ago to try to make it in a job that she hoped would be more interesting than anything WI could offer. She went to New York for a brief while but then ultimately landed in L.A. For a few years she did post-production work as a visual effects coordinator. One of the films she worked on in a few years ago was ….. A-Team which starred Liam Neeson.
Connection #2: Liam Neeson dated Helen Mirren in the 1980’s.
Connection #3: Helen Mirren starred in Red and Red 2 with Bruce Willis. Did you see these movies? I think these flew under the radar. I actually liked Red. I have yet to watch Red 2.
connection #4: Bruce Willis worked with Sylvester Stallone in…come on, you can name this file…The Expendables 2, which came out in 2012.
That’s it for me! I connected myself to Sylvester Stallone. I may never meet him in person but at least I can say that I am within 6 degrees of him! Thanks for playing along. Can you link yourself to Sylvester in fewer connections? Please share!
