Let go of your idols...
Let go of your idols...
3And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
4And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
5And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the LORD.
6And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
7And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:
8They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
9And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

INT: UPSCALE-HI-RISE APARTMENT OF ADULT KEITH’S TWO FAVORITE EXOTIC DANCERS-BEDROOM- CENTER-CITY -PHILADELPHIA PA
MUSIC-BRAND NUBIAN’S- “SLOW DOWN”
DISSOLVE into a huge cloud of crack smoke that slowly disapates to reveal adult Keith who is sitting up in a bed smoking a humongous crack pipe while the two strippers are giving him oral sex.
Yeah (beat) that’s right that’s the way my man
“Big Willie” like it!
We MONTAGE as Keith takes another hit of crack; he closes his eyes in a drug, alcohol, and sexually induced nirvana. This is complete decadence; the two dancers are also lesbian lovers. Keith and the two women proceed to drink from a large bottle of Crystal that is sitting in a cooler filled with ice. They smoke crack, snort coke, smoke marijuana, and have sex with each other in a non-stop frenzy that goes on until about 8:00 am in the morning.
MUSIC FADES OUT: DISSOLVE:
FADE IN: KEITH LEAVING STRIPPERS
INT. -EARLY MORNING- NEW YEARS DAY
DISSOLVE into Keith and the dancers in the doorway of the women’s apartment giving each other Happy New Year hugs and kisses. The women have only thong panties on. Nikki is a gorgeous black woman and Denise is a beautiful, blonde, white woman.
Don’t leave Boo-Boo I miss you already.
(reaches down and grabs Keith’s crotch)
I don’t care if you leave Keith, but you gotta leave “Big
Willie” here with us.
Keith, and the two women laugh as Keith exits for home. CUT-TO: Keith heading for a parking garage.
EXT: FRONT OF PARKING GARAGE
Just before entering the garage he is solicited by a “crack head” female.
Hey baby I’ll give you head for five dollars.
Get the hell outta’ here, crack head scank!
We CONTINUE to TRACK as Keith exits parking lot in his late model candy apple red Corvette, he is nodding his head to the beat of the HIP-HOP classic “SLOW DOWN” by the BRAND NUBIANS. The angry “crack head” female is waiting for him……
SCREW YOU! YOU BASTARD! YOU’RE GONNA GET YOURS ONE
DAY! CAUSE GOD DON’T LIKE UGLY!
Keith slows down his car in front of the “crack head” female and mockingly raps the refrain from “SLOW DOWN”….
“THESE CRACKHEADS, THESE CRACKHEADS,KEEP
KNOCKIN AT MY DOOR, I DON’T SMOKE JUMPS
SO WHAT THEY KNOCKIN FOR!”WITH YOUR STANK BEHIND!
HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!
Keith speeds off laughing and heads for home. Keith arrives about a half hour later to his beautiful West Mt. Airy home in a pristine neighborhood.
INT. KEITH AND BONNIE BLACKWELL’S BEDROOM
A MID SHOT reveals an exhausted Keith lying on his bed still fully clothed as he gives his wife, and eight and five-year-old daughters a phone call in New York City. Keith now transforms into the role of family man.
MATTIE (eight) (VO)
(with as much energy that he can muster up.)
HAPPY NEW YEAR DADDY’S BIG GIRL! How is
my “Smookie Bear”?
(screaming with joy)
IT ‘S DADDY, SEE I TOLD YOU IT WAS DADDY!
HAPPY NEW YEAR DADDY, I MISS YOU! I LOVE
I love you too, I miss you---
Keith cannot finish speaking because five-year-old Mia has run into her grand-parents bedroom, and has picked up the other line, and is yelling into the phone.
DADDY WHEN ARE YOU COMING TO GET US! I
MISS YOU SO MUCH!
Daddy is going to be there at five o’clock on the dot. I
miss both of my sweet little babies and I miss my big
baby too! Where is that Mommy Girl?
SHE’S DOWNSTAIRS COOKING. MOMMY! DADDY
IS ON THE PHONE! I LOVE YOU DADDY!
I love you too, daddy’s babies. I will see you at five o’
clock on the dot!
INT. BONNIE’S PARENTS HOME-BROOKLYN, NEW YORK: WELL-KEPT THREE BEDROOM TWIN-WORKING CLASSNEIGHBORHOOD
Hey baby Happy New Year! Did you guys win your
tournament? You better say yes. (begins whispering)
Because if I had to do without my “Big Willie” for four
days and you guys lost...
We TRACK as Bonnie begins to almost unconsciously walk downstairs into the recreation room bathroom as if drawn by a magnet. She locks the door.
And Happy New Year to you too Babe, and of
course we won it all Mommy. You know my boys
are beasts; USA DAILY has us ranked Number One
in the nation. You know how I roll, only the best of
everything will do. That’s why I have you with that
sweet Cuban bootie of yours.
Bonnie has opened her robe and has placed her hands between her legs; she begins to pleasure herself to the sound of her husband’s voice. Bonnie was a virgin when she and Keith met during their freshmen year at Philly State. She has never been with another man. Keith is Bonnie’s addiction.
Ooo Papi forget basketball, you’re my beast, tell me
what you are gonna do to me tonight.
First I am going to give you a tongue massage from
head to toe and everywhere in between and then I’m
going to let you take a wild ride on “Big Willie”
because I know you gotta’ thing for “Big Willie”.
Bonnie is now beside herself and begins whispering sexual obscenities to her husband in Spanish. Keith returns the sexual whispers to his wife in Spanish. Bonnie has an orgasm to the sound of her husband’s voice.
Baby, I have to get some sleep for the drive up, I was
hanging with M.J. and the other coaches after the game
last night, we had a few drinks, nothing major, but I’m
still beat from coaching.
INT. KEITH AND BONNIE’S BEDROOM
So where was Mr. Jake last night, didn’t he hang with
You know he had to run home to hismommy Sarah,
he’s such a little punk.
Keith you just don’t get it, do you? (beat))Well we’re
not going there on New Years Day, so what time are
you going to get here, you bigknucklehead?
Keith knows he just caught a reprieve from a Bonnie speech because of the holiday; he is grateful, and is ready for his powernap.
Five on the dot Babe, I love you, see you soon.
I love you too, I can’t wait to see you.
They hang up the phone at the same time. It is now approximately 9:30AM. Keith sets his alarm for 2:30PM and begins to drift off to sleep while reflecting on the past week: THE NORTHWEST HIGH SCHOOL/GAMETIME BASKETBALL GEAR, BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT. A CLOSE UP reveals a big smile forming on his face. Keith is as addicted to winning as he is to drugs, alcohol, and sex.
