Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. Â I talk about doing stuff much of the time, but rarely succeed in doing any of it. Â If I’m not mistaken that makes me a member in excellent standing (…go ahead, I’m waiting…)
Here’s another idea. Â I think some of our discussions are really interesting. Â I also think others might find them so, and the interchange thus generated might be fun. Â So here’s the proposal: give me a list of things you think would be fun for the LS to discuss/debate that you would be willing to discuss/debate with camera or audio recorder rolling. Â They need not follow any particular theme. Â Once we have a critical mass of sorts, if the idea still seems good, we can collectively select the first topic from the list of available candidates. Â We’ll schedule a gathering just for the purpose (including the disembodied heads of our Left Coast friends on monitors) and discuss away. Â I’ll commit to recording, editing, and posting. Â I’ll also check into posting a blog so folks will have a place to respond and perhaps even suggest themes of their own.
So have at it. Â Discuss the merits of the overall concept. Â Make suggestions as to topics. Â My only suggestion would be to suggest ideas for which everyone can provide some sort of contribution to the discussion. Â Feel free to provide prerequisites to the discussion. Â Here are a few ideas of varying merit:
The Best Worst Movies
Consequences of the Creative Urge
(after watching the film) Artistic Merit in Zardoz
