Because talking is hard enough
without all those 'st's
You know, sometimes you make 'em and they don't work, other times you make 'em and they work, but you just keep truckin' along.

I do wish Woody would quit truckin'. He hasn't made a decent film since Purple Rose of Cairo.
I was carefully not saying anything about the movies. I just liked the doggedness.
I liked "Bullets Over Broadway." Which he was not in.
The odds of a Woody Allen film not being vomitous does go up if he's not in said movie. And yet they don't go up enough.
That's because he's still there in some form - his characters are just bits of Woody's psyche being moved around in a Jungian sand tray. Oops, I wasn't going to say anything about the movies.
i can't take woody allen's movies seriously. WHAT new york city are they set in? in what universe are stunning women attracted to HIM???
Exactly - it's so obviously his own (very small) personal universe, with the same not-very-interesting fantasy going on every time.

I write fiction. My latest novel is Sea Hearts, published by Allen & Unwin in Australia—this novel is published as The Brides of Rollrock Island by David Fickling Books and Jonathan Cape in the UK, and by Knopf in the US, and as Seeherzen from Rowohlt in Germany. I've also written Tender Morsels and five short story collections: White Time, Black Juice, Red Spikes, Yellowcake and Cracklescape.
