wow. this community is certainly banging along nicely. as in, not doing bloody much at all. so, in the interest of community preservation, i pronounce the start of a new era. the OT era.
i know this community is for creative writing and feedback etc. but, well, that's not happening much. so....
let's go OT
Off Topic Topics:
Ideas for poems or stories
Books, Music, Movies, Art. Anything that you've found interesting and would like to discuss
Challenges (ie. everyone must write a character introduction, or a haiku.etc.etc.)

Any other suggestions for OT topics are welcome.

Okay, so OT the first

Have either of you seen Mulholland Dr. ? if so, what did you make of it?

Mulholland

of course i've seen mulholland drive, you showed it to me. very bizare film but interesting non the less. i was never bored and constantly perplexed, which i really enjoyed.
by the way, i'm still thinking about that epic novel i've been talking with you about for the last couple of years. i've started the first chapter (its in a different style to the ending of the second book which you slamed until it was slander :P) and i've tied in a few loose ends. i still have a few loops so i think i'll have a chat with you about the plot next time.
yeah for OT's

Re: Mulholland

i thought i'd shown it to you, but couldn't remember. i've just been reading a 65 page interpretation of it, so i'm rather desperate for someone to talk about it with...

glad to hear you're back on The Epic. Sorry about the slamming.....but, well.....I had to be honest. Starting at the start and maybe loosening up the writing a bit (the main prob with the ending I read was the slow and depressing style (y'know "we're gonna die"..."we will die"... btw they were all gonna die and then they walked a few more steps "we're all gonna die...") though I was very impressed by your vision. I'm sure the scene/ending could still work. Just needs major culling and revision. as all work generally does. ) will surely lead to a better appreciation of the story on my part if you can still follow this sentence after those parentheses.

I'll be lost in the wilderness for the next few days, so wish me luck. Though I think Matt may be somewhat lost too, so who knows...
