“Always get to the dialogue as soon as possible. I always feel the thing to go for is speed. Nothing puts the reader off more than a big slab of prose at the start." ― P.G. Wodehouse “The idea that you have to be protected from any kind of uncomfortable emotion is what I absolutely do not subscribe to.” ― John Cleese --- I was replaying Deus Ex : Human Revolution and something struck me. There is no exposition in the game. Every single line of dialogue builds into a narrative from just general conversation. You learn about EVERY aspect of the future society, characters, and their relationships, and ironically unlike the iconic trailers for the game in which Jensen talks directly to the 'audience' about his feelings and mission, but does not do this in the game itself. Consider the first scene. A bunch of people talking about a complicated scheme of media manipulation and power seizure. Presumably these Illuminati type guys are well versed in their statecraft so it would make no

"You sly dog, you got me MONOLOGUING!" - The Incredibles "A thousand poets dreamed a thousand years. Then you were born." - Unfaithfully Yours -- My muse was running on fumes thanks to a combination of inactivity and chronic depression, but thankfully some opportunities have opened up and allowed me to work again!

And few can spark my imagination and desire to talk about writing other than collative learning professor Rob Ager who inspired me to look deeper into the film works of directors like Kubrick, Spielberg, even Tarantino. Normally I dislike deconstructionism for the sake of

“If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.” ― Albert Einstein “Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.” ― Lloyd Alexander --- I recently saw an eloquent and intriguing break down of one of my favorite games: Planescape: Torment. I go on record for saying that I am NOT a fan of superfluous deconstructionism, having endured plenty of that in high school and college and nearly perishing from severe eye-rolling (my least favorite example being the suggestion that Christian Bale was chosen to play the 'Christian Male' in the movie The New World on purpose). BUT if there is precedent, if there is meat to be bit into then deconstructionism is one of my favorite hobbies. It's less like taking apart a story with a hammer to watch it squirm but more like meticulously brushing away the dust of obscurantism and metaphor that obscures the beautiful INTENTIONAL meanings hidden
