For original creative work. For the love of Zach, read Rule 30.

That's exactly what I thought it meant. Are you therefore saying my product is unfit for filming?

Can you honestly say that anything you've watched on TV in the last seven days hasn't been immediately superseded in your mind by Klankon, the Lovable Robot?

I drew a robot yesterday, and it had a speech bubble saying "Hello!".

And I think about that more often than any show.

Actually I thought about "We are Klang" because I posted that link.

Have you seen "We are Klang"?

I tried to. We were buzzing about the newfangled BBC iPlayer, and tried it. I watched roughly twenty seconds of people shouting, then decided to give it a miss, as I was really in the mood for comedy.

The first half is not much, however the second half is gold.

Does it necessitate watching the first half?

Might indulge later then. Probably not.

You know what? I'm totally never going to do this. Kill me now, but it's something I came to realise. I like the idea more than the effort. :(

Did I get your hopes up? I got mine up to... sorry.

That reminds me, I'm probably not going to get much done on the SMBC playlist any time soon. :wink: But I don't feel too bad about it, because I'm going to be busy with school and I really didn't expect to be working so much in August. What happened to my goddamn vacation! I hate being grown-up.

Maybe you could just change the form of what you initially planned. Throw an introductory paragraph and some rules/guidelines as to what you want done with it. Make us take it in turns to add to what you've begun.

Maybe I will... maybe I will...

Seriously I would like to. I think it'd be an interesting effort, just pressed for time. Tomorrow I have to call the doctor and get myself a certificate of insanity in a desperate bid to complete University before it crushs my soul.

You know, I was thinking of this last night when I was in bed desperately trying to convince my body that it was daytime and ergo time for sleep. Thank you for the closure that is more akin to 'The End...?'

Kimra, with your blessing, I'd like to give this a shot myself. I have a few ideas for a collaborative* story that, inspired by a really good Omegle conversation last night**, I'm itching to try out.

*I checked I'd spelled that right with my spullchucker, and it rejected it. Oddly, the interwebz disagree, and say, "It is so a word". This is why Skynet can't ever really come about. Machines argue just as much as people, it's just we don't notice it so much.
**The story I want to begin has nothing to do with the conversation, it's a new idea independant of this. But the conversation I had was a collaborative story, so I'm hooked on the idea of them now.
