Do you ever just get a random burst of motivation to clean your room, write a novel, paint a masterpiece or read a book at like 3am
My school had a community booksale and I may have bought all the Agatha Christie books. I kept telling myself not to buy all the books, but.
Would the creators of the following movies please stand up
The Golden Compass
City of Bones
The City of Ember
AND THE FIFTH HARRY POTTER MOVIE
now please sit down and listen to this talk on how good books can be made into good movies if you remember the plot of the book and actually put all of it in the movie, presented by the creators of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
"good books can be made into good movies"
so why is Twilight on the list
cause it wasn’t a good book
in any way
THOU = “YOU” WHEN YOU’RE FUCKING DOING SOMETHING.
THEE = “YOU” WHEN YOU’RE HAVING SOMETHING FUCKING DONE TO YOU.
THY = “YOUR” AND “YOURS” WHEN THE THING YOU OWN BEGINS WITH A FUCKING VOWEL.

I wrote an article for The Toast on the phonological constraints that allow you to identify Bandicoot Cumbersnatch, Bendandsnap Candycrush, and even Wimbledon Tennismatch as synonyms for the same long-faced British actor, by analyzing all of the names from the Benedict Cumberbatch name generator.
You should go read it there first to see what the constraints are and how I got them, and then come back here for a bonus in-depth investigation into how we can model them using constraint rankings loosely inspired by Harmonic Grammar (don’t worry if you don’t know what that is).

Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy
Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.
