This is some meta insanity.

I don’t know who buys a book like this. I would love to see one that assembles the ‘great ideas’ people have for their book, briefly summarizes the story (in 140 characters or less) and then shows how far they got before they abandoned it.

the robits tell you lies about god and you disprove them using bits of scripture you collect as you explore.
it’s kind of the best game ever

This kid is dancing to me bobbing my head to this song.

Reddit told me, and lo, it’s great. Try ‘The Point.’

Where do you get your ideas?

Tone. Tone, man. If you were determined to capture the tone of something, or to pay homage to it, your work would have a life that most creative storytelling lacks.

Arthur C. Clarke: best friend of anime

Today I was reminded that anime frequently borrows from Western science-fiction.

I’ve known about the Neon Genesis Evangelion - Childhood’s End connection. Today I was researching Logan’s Run and came across The City and the Stars, which I have never read.

I just watched Gurren Lagann, and multiple plot elements overlap. I suspect TCatS lacks Gurren Lagann’s enthusiasm and insanity. It probably also doesn’t have face-mecha.

I’m surprised it’s taken me this long to listen to Improv4Humans, considering my background as a UCB fan and long form improv performer/enthusiast. This scene is a personal favorite - the presence of the lousy British accents is alleviated by the presence of one authentic one. I must have listened to this a dozen times yesterday.

EDGE OF TOMORROW (2014) directed by Doug Liman. 5 out of 5 MIMICS!
I can’t think of one negative thing to say about this film. I’m appalled at how good it was. This might be a perfect summer blockbuster flick. I really loved it. Is this the best popcorn movie Tom Cruise has done since Minority Report? (Tropic Thunder is TOO GOOD to be considered merely a popcorn movie.)

IT’S SO GOOD
