And that seems to be the case. But, if someone wanted to post in a way that pleases others, they could just pick a way, and it would. If they want to please all others though, they should change up the style, so they aren't pleasing the same people each time. Or, they could post any way they please, that works too.

Being pleased is a self induced state of the pleasee not an effect created by the pleaser.

However, since pizza has been introduced to the OTT, I have decided to contribute, for I often make pizza at home from scratch. So for all you tribal members here on the OTT, please help yourself to some of my blue pizza. If you're not fond of fungi, one half is without mushrooms (these are not the kind Ugg had. Or Bob). Enjoy.

Hmm, maybe I tangented too far. It was supposed to be a yappo card. I thought with his enjoyment of being anti-pope of the page of the beast, he'd like one of the darker cards. The animal on the left is an otter. The moon is from an album cover of a band he recommended. The wolf and crayfish are elements of the usual tarot, but this specific wolf is from another metal album cover, and the cray is a rock lobster. The shadowy towers are from his molpy-grapevine video.

Too obscure? Should I try again?

Just about obscure enough. Stick with it.

The major point of feedback I'd like is with the Latin name. I don't know Latin, help is appreciated.
Next, general feedback, suggestions. The TBD's actually have content, but I'm attempting to spark interest with mystery (and I'm not done completely). Feel free to suggest for these too.

Thanks.

I would suggest: Apocrita elongata, Apocrypha elongata, Lineavolucris apiserpens

I don't actually know Latin, but from long experience with binomial names, exact conformation to real latin isn't entirely necessary...and these names wouldn't make anyone in the field blink.

Seconded. Being someone in the field, I didn't blink at trolleypup's suggestions. The endings match, and the species name (=second word) is lower-case. That's all it needs.
Wait on.

Trope, cliché, stereotype, archetype, pattern. If people start adding "just a" to trope, then it will be indistinguishable from cliché ("oh, that's just a trope").

Well, we gotta have standards!

There are good arguments either way, and (IMHO) neither method is inherently worse. Similarly the question of whether a post should be editable could also easily go either way. However, once one method is chosen, this creates expectations in the reader, and reading is smoother if the agreed-upon standard is mostly adhered to. (I will also note that there are good arguments for not choosing, but that is not a choice we got to make.)

Posts here come with quite a bit of overhead: the header, the icons, the signature, the sidebar statistics, and they occupy space and slow down the reading. So, consider it a form of organic data compression. :)
Jose

I find sigs slow down reading about five thousand times more than the thread framework stuff; the avatar and user stats are over on the side where one is accustomed to ignore adverts.
The double post rule is telling us to ensure someone else posts something before we post something. This is a recipe for Tread paralysis and checking it is a massive spoiler for blitzgirlies.
*glances over at Valarya*


On the User Control Panel, Board Preferences tab, you can use the Edit Display Options selection to turn avatars and signatures on or off as you choose. Also, the Index page lists who posted last, so it can be checked safely without spoilers. Not that I think any of us, Blitzers or not, need to stress too much over the occasional double post.

If you think that's bad, just wait until some OtherPersonInThe OTC explains to them how the giant canyons in the Western USA were pretty much carved in a couple days after a humungous ice-dam broke and spilled a great-lake-sized volume of water all at once.

Re: 1190: "Time" Rising and Falling Action

Postby ttscp » Sun Jun 09, 2013 12:47 pm UTC

Dear Teach,

My paper was eaten by a molpyraptor and dropped over a wowterfall, can I have an extension?

Sincerely ttscp

I predicted in my first literary analysisR post that the OTC would end between 3500 and 4000 newpix. In my previous post I claimed the wowterfall (newpix 1933-1936) is the midpoint so I'm right on target. I have the kind of mind that presents itself with solutions without really explaining why, so I have to pretend to be some kind of (in this case) literature professor, to figure out what I'm talking about.I

I talked about filler material - the stuff that extends and convolutes the plot in order to keep our interest beyond a few secondsV. I differentiated between atmospheric filler and plot extending fillerE. The filler around the wowterfall seems to me to be more plot extending, than atmospheric, really. So that's one reason to believe we've reached the midpoint.

A second reason is a feeling that corresponds to what the theater types call rising and falling action. Think of a triangle with a horizontal base. In a five act ShakespeareS play, the point of the triangle is generally in the third act, the action rising toward that point and then falling afterwards.M

Movies skew the triangle toward the right, speeding down the slope toward the conclusion. That might distort my analysis a little. If this really were a term paper, I'd analyze a representative sample of movies, plays and books to determine more exactly how much skew and how it afffected the prediction.A

My feeling may simply come from Cuegan climbing into the hills and so they could be at the highest point of their journey. There are some novels and plays that literally chart the rising/falling action (Charlie's IQ in Flowers for Algernon). I don't think any author consciously intends that, but the symbolic value may be too strong for the subconscious to resist.L

At the midpoint you expect a more definite turning point, but since we have only two characters who speak, and there's not much conflict between them, I"m going with the visual.

Question: does any one else believe we will get answers about LaPetite and/or Cueball's dream?

Next post, I descend into heresy and try to read the GLR's mind. Ready the foam maiden.

|< first < previous > next WARNING for first time readers and blitzers: the link takes you farther along in the thread and may reveal information you don't want to know...yet.


R I guess you'd call it that. It's definitely not short term - what's going to happen next newpix or so - and it's concerned at least initially with the overall length of the OTC and how to predict that length from the use of literary devices.
I Doing detective work on my own mind to figure out how I came to a conclusion is my style. Everybody else just says, "what was he thinking?"
V Well, my interest, maybe you have a longer attention span. Mine is pretty shor-Squirlpie!!!
E Atmospheric: "Chirp." Plot extending: "Our rope isn't strong enough."R
R Cueball's dream. Next line, "Hold this or you'll fall."
S As promised, Shakespeare. Hemingway was quoted in the previous post.
M Here's an analysis of Lear.
A I'm not going to. My brain hasn't been eaten away by the brain amoeba that much.L
L Yet.
L Did I really write that sentence? No wonder people's eyes glaze over when I talk.

Edit: spelling, grammar

What's most interesting is that the only reference gives me for bronzifyong is your post referencing Google, not the original ong.

A second reason is a feeling that corresponds to what the theater types call rising and falling action. Think of a triangle with a horizontal base. In a five act ShakespeareS play, the point of the triangle is generally in the third act, the action riseing toward that point and then falling afterwards.M

Movies skew the triangle toward the right, speeding down the slope toward the conclusion. That might distort my analysis a little. If this really were a term paper, I'd analyze a representative sample of movies, plays and books to determine more exactly how much skew and how it afffected the prediction.A

My feeling may simply be come from Cuegan climbing into the hills mountain and could be at the highest point of their journey. There are some novels and plays that literally chart the rising/falling action (Charlie's IQ in Flowers for Algernon). I don't think any author consciously intends that, but the symbolic value may be too strong for the subconscious to resist.L

At the midpoint you expect a more definite turning point, but since we have only two characters who speak, and there's not much conflict between them, I"m going with the visual.

Question: does any one else believe we will get answers about LaPetite and/or Cueball's dream?

Next post, I descend into heresy and try to read the GLR's mind. Ready the foam maiden.

R I guess you'd call it that. It's definitely not short term - what's going to happen next newpix or so - and it's concerned at least initially with the overall length of the OTC and how to predict that length from the use of literary devices.
I Doing detective work on my own mind to figure out how I came to a conclusion is my style. Everybody else just says, "what was he thinking?"
V Well, my interest, maybe you have a longer attention span. Mine is pretty shor-Squirlpie!!!
E Atmospheric: "Chirp." Plot extending: "Our rope isn't strong enough."R
R Cueball's dream. Next line, "Hold this or you'll fall."
S As promised, Shakespeare. Hemingway was quoted in the previous post.
M Here's an analysis of Lear.
A I'm not going to. My brain hasn't been eaten away by the brain amoeba that much.L
L Yet.
L Did I really write that sentence? No wonder people's eyes glaze over when I talk.

Hmmm. Keep it up and it will be a master's thesis.

Yeah, I pushed that and got one other reference, with the "...it probably does now..." language from the later posts, so no reference to the original ONG.

Well, ok but for the eggplant. About the only veggie I can't abide. Ok, though, if disguised with enough red sauce and mozzarella and evoo and parmesan. Do I have to draw you a picture?

I'm liking the new Last Time Waiter. This business of creating self-repairing systems can go wrong in very entertaining ways - no wonder it "may take a few years".

It might be fun for BlitzGirl to turn out to be the villain. What do you say BlitzGirl - up for some world domination? Could BuffyGirl hold her back?

Minor spelling/grammar note: "The Archduchess and the Engineer leaded the way" should be "... led the way".

Awesome Moon card! Regarding swords, I would not change the name, but simply replace the imagery of swords with imagery of pens. Let the joke be understated.

@BlitzGirl: Nice C.O.M.A. filk! I wonder what it is that makes a song more (or less) likely to be filked. I'm sure the distribution of filk versions is decidedly non-uniform over originals.

ttscp wrote:Question: does any one else believe we will get answers about LaPetite and/or Cueball's dream?
Yes. I think both are foreshadowing - LaPetite especially. Not resolving the dream would be almost "meh", but not resolving LaPetite would be deeply unsatisfying.

As to filler, some time ago I read "Lucifer's Hammer", an SF book about the aftermath of a large (enough) meteor impact in modern times. It had a rather long middle section where a lot of (perhaps unnecessary) detail was used, and the plot wasn't moving all that fast. However, the actuality of reading through that section very much contributed to the emotional impact of having gone through the turmoil that the characters had, and was very much necessary to the full enjoyment of the last part of the book. It's kind of like the "waiting for it" here contributes to the enjoyment of the One True Comic.

== Blindposting from NP 800 ==

Blitzing took me half of my afternoon, and I'm still 10 NP behind. :( And I have my internship report to write.

I never have much to say, so there's only one Response and one NewScript.

Ha! I used to program a computer by moving beads from left to right and vice versa.

And I used to program a computer with a bunch of rocks! But that was very Time-consuming...


And now for the NewScript.

I've read the discussion about parens, and I had the idea to automate some paren-checking for the OTT. And so I did.

I considered parenthesis work beyond posts and even newpages, so whole portions of the OTT might be inside parenthesis., which is kind of sad. A future version will be able to tell how much.
Note that it ignores quoted text and code blocks. The script is available here.

Here are the results.

And dropping the rock.

Rats.


I notice that the rock has a trail behind it. Like the beesnake. Does that mean that the trail/train/tail of the beesnake is just a graphic by Randall showing its loopy zigzag path, and not an actual trail, but an afterimage-of-movement, so to speak?

I think the beesnake isn't a beesnake at all; just a moving bug.

(Also "facebug" is faster to say in shock than "oh-my-ghod-there's-a-bug-on-my-face!")
