Re: The Curse Of Expositional Dialogue

Yeah, it's tough. It's tough even for the best writers, I think, in part because it's inversely correlated with the depth of the world itself: the more you want to throw the audience into a fully...

Re: MoFo Fantasy Football 2019 - The Regular Season

Yeah, honestly, I'm happy with my play in general, but one of the reasons I had so much success in the first decade of this league was outworking most of the league on the wire. It didn't always...

I listed quite a few reasons, let me know which ones don't make sense to you, I guess.

I think the problem is thinking of these two things as more similar than they are, though. They're totally...

Re: How come podcasts are never edited, it seems?

A good thought experiment is to imagine one of your favorite things: book, video game, movie, album, whatever. You probably have a limitless appetite for it. You'd want whatever ridiculous Special...

I think there's probably something midway between "weak" and "strong" that we might entertain. That we're actually (mostly) already doing.

Re: The MoFo Westerns List

I'd say yes, barely. I was starting to write down why, but it occurs to me it might be helpful (or just interesting to others) if I sat down to expound on what I think makes a western a western, and...

Technically it means of low or poor quality, though I think in usage it usually ends up noting a general lack of polish. I hear it in gaming communities a lot. I think it gets a lot more use on the...

Re: The MoFo Westerns List

I'd say Blazing Saddles is a Western. Sorry in advance if we're being too freeform here. I'm cool with Holden basically just picking one for us to discuss at a time, to keep things focused/clear.

I'd vote against Midnight Cowboy, too. The presence of a cowboy hat (and the word cowboy) not withstanding. Though it is fun to think about what would have to change about the film in order for me to...
