I am deeply involved in trying to solve the discrepancy between being interested in zen and trying to acquire all the things I've been accumulating

By the time I finally decided to break down and buy a copy of the first issue of Sylvester Stallone's fitness magazine, Sly, I couldn't find a copy anywhere. The reason for my change of heart was Stallone's first editorial which reached one really simple yet profound conclusion. Stallone came to the rather startling realization that based upon his remaining life expectancy he had only 800 odd weekends left. A sobering thought for all of us and a message to spend our time wisely. In Stallone's case it was readily apparent that he wouldn't be spending much of that time writing more editorials.

Now comes word of a Stallone movie project even more unlikely than the prospect of another Rocky (can the news of a new Rocky really be true?). The new project in question is reported in the September/October 2005 issue of creative screenwriting. Get a load of this:

"Nu Image/Millenium Films has made a deal to produce Sylvester Stallone's Poe, based on the life of Edgar Allan Poe. Stallone will also direct. Stallone has always been fascinated by Poe and finished the script several years ago."

We can only hope that he doesn't decide to play Poe himself. Nevermore!
