Well-written passages

I know i haven't posted here in a while and I thought I'd do so with something I think we can all appreciate. The written word. There are just passages that hit us, either their lyrical nature or their voice, style or whatever. They're just cool. I was inspired by the following passage, which I read...

Re: ESports

I agree, poker is no more a sport than Monopoly or dominoes. Let's have the World Series of Yahtzee! We can air it live on ESPN. Who's with me?

How to perform shows that aren't boring.

I think a lot of people who have to perform think it's as simple as getting on stage and puking out the material and that everyone will love it. No. If I wanted to do that, I'd buy the CD. This applies to any kind of performance. Musicians have an easier time of it than say authors or poets, but sti...

Re: Who are your favorite artists?

And this didn't include film, video effects, graphic design, etc. That's only for obvious stuff, too. Don't get me started on how much artistry can be incorporated into shit like hair and makeup. Can anyone say Hollywood special effects makeup? Interior design? Fashion? Set design? Props? Landscapin...

Re: Who are your favorite artists?

I don't really have a favorite artist specifically but I really think tattoo artists and game artists go underappreciated in terms of being left out of "best of" listings. Dave Navarro, who hosted that show Inkmaster, said he believes there are people with tattoos just as good as any "...

Re: Let's talk about characterization

In any sense, a lot of protags and antags are designed with some kind of tortured past because no one wants to see a character who has a boring, nothing-happened-at-all, unremarkable past.
