Sandwiches should be allowed one - two at the very most - more items of filling than those advertised in the name. And they should be as innocuous as possible.

The other day @mortenbrunbjerg@twitter.com said "Spanish is a markup language" (referring to the fact that it has opening and closing question and exclamation marks like ¿? and ¡!, as well as a few other things like how we use em dashes for dialogue) and my brain is still thinking about it

That Braille input method. I love it.

I just started a new discord server which I'm calling "Trans Game Dev" - it's an invite only server exclusively a safe space for trans game developers.

Send me a DM for invite. It's literally just me on there for now but hey could become a nice little space!

That's as much as I have to say about it. I love the idea of playing with a format like that. Seeing how each movie puts its own twist on the central segment, that "has" to be the same to "qualify." Guessing what each clue might mean this time. The familiarity AND novelty of it.

Show thread

All of these moments happen around the time the murder takes place. Once the "shared segment" ends, each movie is free to produce completely different clues, explain the things that happened in completely different ways, and so on.

Show thread

For example: character A ALWAYS flees over the roof and knocks some roof tiles down. B and C fight, and B is injured on the shoulder (whether they fight with magic, swords or guns). D sees E surreptitiously slipping into a room, and D immediately follows.

Show thread

The central conflict, the way that the murder is committed / the chaos surrounding the time of murder, is always the same. For those ten-twenty minutes of movie, you know EXACTLY what you're expecting. After that, each movie diverges and shakes things up.

Show thread

Over time, the plot of the film becomes well-known enough that it becomes its own beast, in people's minds separate from the original one who spawned it. All of the versions are recognizable as being "Dark and Stormy" because they all share the same thing:

Show thread

Now imagine there was a crime / whodunnit film that reached a certain level of cult status. We'll call it "Dark and Stormy." Movies are made "copying" the film, i.e. adaptations. Original is live-action, an anime version is made. Set in the 1800s, set in modern times, and so on.

Show thread

Take Romeo and Juliet. It's been adapted into film many times. Some of the films stick more closely to the original script, some less. Some introduce twists that they hope you don't expect.

Show thread

I just dreamed about a concept that's never gonna happen, so I might as well just put it on Twitter. I don't mean "never gonna happen" as in "idea I'll never make", more like "EXTREMELY improbable in the current state of film." I'm calling it "Dark and Stormy."
