Convoluted plots have always been something of an obsession of mine. The idea of keeping people interested, regardless of whatever tangential whim you decide to follow, sounds like a lot of fun to me. I grew up surrounded by insane plot twists and slingshots full of storytelling tropes being thrown at the media I consumed.

I like it.

Anyway, here's a video where some guy tries to explain a story and this kinda set me down the path of going "oh yeah, bonkers stories can just be a lot of fun." I mean, the guy's explanation made me chuckle and I wanted to put a link to it somewhere and rambling about plot was something that I used to do so... that.

In this increasingly litigious world could we ask you to be more specific about what you desire, rather than a generic and easily misunderstood 'some'?

The correct response is, "You want some, come get some!"

Just sayin'.

As a non-theist who knows a fair bit about wrestling, they seem like a natural fit. Well, religions take kayfabe more seriously than most wrestling companies but apart from that it's almost uncanny.

Just looking through the current films listings, there doesn't seem to be much scope for a plagiarized film in the fantasy section. The only two films out right now that your friend could believe are based on her work are Alita: Battle Angel which is based off a 29 year old manga or The Kid Who Would Be King which is a modern day Arthur story an idea too generic to be considered plagiarism.

Is that an actual instrument on the page front, Ollie?

I have no idea, I think it's just a funky model though.

Soup and pasta, as well as several Mexican dishes, the taste is always better the next day.



My husband, Dakota (our eldest son) and I are in a Monty Python roll. We just finished, Monty Python and the Holy Grail and are now onto, The Life of Brian. Absolutely slap-stick humor and you must be in the mood for it or it can be grating on the nerves. Tonight, it's getting the laughs.

I do love Monty Python. I think they are brilliant!

While I enjoy the films, I prefer the tv series.

2018 was a horrible year, so I need something with a little attitude to kick off the new year.
