Texts From M Night

If you don't know what Texts From Last Night is, then you were probably born before 1980 or are without internet access, but just in case you don't, here's the wikipedia summary:
Texts From Last Night (TFLN) is a regularly updated blog that re-posts short text messages sent in by people who wake in the morning "to find regrettable messages sent to or from their mobile phones". Since the texts are often similar to late night drunk dials, they're often graphic and sexual in nature.
So, Texts From Last Night is wildly popular... and rightly so. Here are a few of the less-risque examples I could find:
(401): Renamed my iPod as 'the titantic' so when I plug it in it's says 'the titantic is syncing.'

(219): rather than putting your name in guys phones, you just texted 90999 to donate $10 to Haiti and then gave it back to them

(305): i made the cop pinkie-promise not to arrest me if i failed the breathalizer.
Good stuff... and it got me thinking... the "texts from" market is far from cornered. There's gotta be something besides "last night" that people would enjoy some "texts from." Enter M Night Shyamalan:

Texts From M Night: a regularly updated blog that re-posts short text messages... with a twist! They're all from M Night Shyamalan, director of the Sixth Sense and Signs. 
(401):Party in the Village! This thing show no Signs of stopping!

(219): bout to finally get this fine Lady in the Waterbed... can't believe this is Happening!

(305): i could TOTALLY be a rapper. MC Night Shyamalan. "writer, director, my style is unmistakable... my flow and my movies are both Unbreakable"
Who doesn't love text puns from fading Indian-American directors? Probably some people... which is why there are also Texts From Dark Knight for super hero fans:
(815): some joker crashed my party. he actually seemed cool at first, but is quickly becoming the bane of my existence. i hate it when people are two-faced. i am batman.
And if that's no good, then there's some for sports fans... Texts From Bobby Knight:
(328): Much harder to throw recliner across living room than I thought
And even some for the older folks... Texts From Gladys Knight:
(414): SO hungry... gonna run a Midnight Train on these chicken & waffles.
