Stephen King had ghost writers write his story that is why it's hard to have a deep conversation about character development with him. Sorry Y'all....
I loved the running man
Faux Elvis is super annoying ... nobody cares about anything you have to say, Faux Elvis!
Good god but the introduction lady, will she just sit down and shut up ...i want to hear the legend
Gotta love that condescending bitch who introduced him.
"Rip her hair off" basically, in stan twitter language, "she was gon snatch her wig"
I hate this guy. He's a total dick bag and anti-trump, so he's def anti-american, and pro-liberalism... but his advice is solid. However, his books suck, anything after carrie is garbage. He has too many friends in the NYT and USAtoday, this is the only thing that helps him get his books out. but they always tank in sales. Over the years he has some 20 or 30mill, but all his books combined suck.
hello organizers, you always provide a floating mic for the audience for a fucking Q&A...LMAO wtf
I looooooove King.
Mediocrity critiquing mediocrity. Good times. 🙄
Why doesn't the dude on the left sit down?
50:20 I like this opinion so much. If I was a member of this audience I so would've asked King what his opinion on CreepyPastas are or if he's read any of them (Pretty sure End of Watch was influenced by Lavender Town Syndrome) for that's another sub-genre of writing I feel isn't payed much attention too.Allot of them are trash but stuff like Candle Cove & No End House I feel are story's he'd love.
Youre right King, youre not that smart, or, it seems the people that reads that drivel.
did lawrence krause walk through a portal
Disagree on one major point: Judge Judy rules!And the fawning, giddy intro for Mr. King was painful to hear.Andre, whoever he is (college professor?) is beyond annoying, especially with his stereotypical New England accent caricature.He says the human soul needs stories.More important is that the human brain needs facts, which is why it’s even more important to read good history books and biographies.
I wonder what Stephen King is worth? Y'know...by the pound.
I knew some people who once said in a conversation that if they became president, they’d put horror writers in jail because their minds are so weird and twisted. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’m glad Donald Trump is president
Skip to 48:30 to hear King's views on "Twilight," "50 Shades of Grey," Lovecraft, etc.
"...not necessarily literature". Literature means writin that has letters in it, literally. He meant to tell to us that letters were not used in those books?
The most important thing for a writer to achieve is for the reader to remember while readin to be devoted and subordinate to "God" (Wr-Alda).
He's a bad influence. He's possibly also my cousin. My family has Kings from colonial Maine. I would never read one, of his books. Read a few chapters and that was enough to realize what a reject he is for decent folks. Would never see one of his movin pictures neither.
why do so many people care about what a thief has to say? it's been proven so many times how he steals people's stories so i'd rather hear from those people.
36:20 what a weird answer. The question was if he would write something under a pseudonym and not as his real name Stephen King. He answers basically saying no. What he doesn't say is "I did that. I used the name Richard Backman. So yeah - I did that."Weird weird answer given that he's actually done this before.
Stephen King needs to get on Joe Rogan's podcast.
Tom Sawyer is better then Huckleberry Finn. You cannot change my mind.
The prolific novelist Stephen King says “spoiler alerts” are for wussies!! LOL, LOL. 😂🤣😂
MIC the audience so their questions can be heard!
Why does he look like hellboy?
48:27 50 shades51:25 Lovecraft
48:25 is what you're looking for...
Such a self-indulgent, wordy, awkward intro. Can it already and let him speak. Gosh. Annoying, idle blather. King starts at 3:11.
48:20 is actually what the title says.
Stephen King looks like an animated character. (in a good way)
I heard that he disliked Kubrick's The Shining so I guess his novel must have been through a few unwanted changes...
I remember having to read his books in full sunlight because I was so scared.
29:29 did Stephen just shit on my childhood?
Stephen King at 2:55
Doesn't seem more likable than the average person.
This is so awesome! He's amazing, and I wish I could see him speak live!
I saw and heard him speak at Kulba Khan in Nashville1980, back when he had dark hair and wore a beard. He's a great speaker.He and Andrew J Offutt (R.I.P)were seated together both had gotten awards so they spent time between speaking picking on each other using their awards. Yes, he sounded and acted like someone you would love to sit with and swap stories with.
my favorite author , i was a kid but my mom let me read the dragons eyes when i was really young.. while its a fantasy story it is how i became a fan of mr king. i was 5 when i started reading it.. i just loved his stories.. love the journeys you took me on.. i was happy to go on these trips. you are the reason i dream and hope to be writer just thank you... your pages on pages just fueled me.. thank you for the joy of every letter and of every word... thank you for giving me something to push for something to believe in ...
Scott Mizzi-Gili Hang about. You read Eyes of the Dragon when you were FIVE ???!! Most children have just learned to read See Spot Run at that age.
He looks like a cat.
A cool one.
I'll tell you what's scary: that hastily rigged curtain backdrop. What unspeakable horror is it hiding?
Being paralyzed by terror is not a good thing. Cmon ppl
If it has over 300 adverbs it is Stephen King or J K Rowling.
The Running Man is a great movie. If it had followed the book exactly it would have been shit. And Arnold is one of the biggest stars and most successful people in modern history.
Those kids are idiots. They will invite a professional liar to speak about fantasy and yet they would implode at the thought of listening to a conservative talk about reality.
@Matthew Newton you want to know what college lectures have to do with politics? Seriously? College's push their politics on everyone. They try to suppress freedom of speech. They show favoutism towards low IQ liberal activists. They ban non liberals from speaking. Today's college's are basically just brainwashing factories for political activists and gender study morons. As for king, he has a lot of skeletons in his closet and is part of the group of hollywood sell outs who has been rewarded for bashing trump and spreading lies.
Did somebody turn two pages at once? I’m completely lost here. Who is the liar and what relation does this lecture bear to politics?
A venerable writer is being driven home by his hypeman after a Q and A at a reputable university. Things don't go according to play. Hijinks ensue.
@LaraCroftEyes1 50 Shades of Gay, more like.
Awe are you a Twilight fan or 50 shade of Gray fan?
"This is Stevie King. He's wicked smart." He certainly is. How is it we have began to under appreciate the talent it takes to write and create when these are the people who entertain us, who cause us to think and lay the foundations for films, plays and novels that can live on for generations? There are few skills a person can obtain that are as lasting as this, or that bring as much.
54:07 is it just me, or does the audience clap because the annoying guy leaves?
The creepy guy that lives behind the fence out back....
Stephen King's transcendental ability to create a world out of thin air (paper?), and make you live in it to the extent that upon completion of one of his books, you feel a sense of loss and grief something akin to the death of a close relative, is incredible.
My favourite author. So often he's dismissed as a writer of pulp, mainstream horror (vampires, zombies etc etc), almost always from people who've never read one of his books, and only know him from the dozens of terrible, B-grade film adaptations of his books. With the exceptions of A Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, Stand By Me, Hearts In Atlantis, The Shining, Pet Cemetary, Room 1408, Rose Red, The Mist (average movie, brutal ending!) and perhaps the IT remake, they're all so bad. And he's outspoken as not giving a shit. Oh well. It's such a shame The Dark Tower wasn't treated with the respect that Game of Thrones was (for five seasons), because those books are genius, the movie is woeful, and there's material there for a world shattering series of movies or tv series. And many thanks go to a drug called cocaine, without which we would not have some of the more intense fiction of his, from the insanity of the IT conclusion, to many aspects of the long Dark Tower series, to so many in between. May the King reign forever
silent questions are kinda annoying with these kinda videos...
please buy my book www.amazon.com/dp/B07VKS11J9
Mr. King has made my life more wonderful since I was 9 years old. I was a kid who came from Nicaragua in 1978 and loved to read. I went to the library in the Bronx and there were several books written by Mr. King. There for the first time I picked up Carrie and Salem's Lot. The rest is history for me. I own almost all of Mr. King's books, and I am now 47 and still read like I am starving for books. When someone once asked me "Who are your favorite authors?" (God I hate that question) I said, Stephen King, Edith Wharton, W. Somerset Maughn, Henry James and HP Lovecraft. I was a weird young kid, carrying around all my books and other kids making fun of me, but I thank Mr. King for making me feel normal, from youth until this day. Mr. King, if you ever come to New York City we here in the Bronx will meet you at the Poe House and throw you a festival!!
I don't know who that other bloke is but he's a fucking idiot.
2:27 Christmasday 1987...my mother was calling me:"Come celebrate, have christmas dinner, have some misery on the table..."
Also: A little advice for writers who have found themselves here. Don’t aim to be like Steven King as a writer. Or any of your author faves. Be like You.
My writing is abstract and intellectual. I slap my penis against the keyboard and let autocorrect try to fix it. If you don't get it then use ate s fiol
@Matt Diazepam Hey! Don't tell me how to Eat/Pray/Love when I'm trying to Live/Laugh/Love! I heart my empty, brainless platitudes TO THE MOON AND BACK!! Seriously, I became nauseated just reading the original post. Namaste, Motherfucker!
How generic and trite.Any other meaningless tit-bits of advice you found stencilled on a single woman's kitchen wall?
HES A NUT! 😂
People go on about his horror stories but forget he wrote two amazing prison dramas that became popular Hollywood films.... the Shawshank redemption and the Green Mile.
@t has a FREE Art therapy course. I took it. Loved it! @t. FREE! Because part of minimalism to me is not to have to pay. To fill out forms, get money, get credit, get accepted at the school/university. All that is stress!
Stephen King is a genius!
It's a bit uncanny how Stephen King's voice sound similar to Donald Trump's is you listen closely.
He doesn't seem to have any concept of good and evil. Wow!
A great talk, the only improvement would be if the people asking questions were given a microphone....some of the questions were repeated for the viewers could hear, but not all. Other than that, very enjoyable. Thank you for sharing.
Love the man and his books. I've read most of his books and have read most more than twice. Great guy.
For 50 shades of grey and Lovecraft, skip to 48:00
49:41 so it's porn
Something tells me he's still a bit salty about the shining
20:58 he only watches AMC
Love it very interesting to hear Stephen King himself about writing and his take on current novels in the market. Thanks for sharing!
That other author is so annoying. He made this a tad awkward than it needs to be. He even said, "I'm gonna choose a woman." When choosing people to ask questions, that was just...
