Topic: The Princess Bride
By S. Morgenstern, chapter one.
It's fair to say that this is one of those "lovey dovey" Down in Front episodes, and who's to blame you? We're all comfortable with this movie like we're comfortable with your mother, and I personally am so comfortable with this movie that I took it upon myself to get hammered and mix myself improperly. Sorry folks, neither of those things will happen again.
As Trey is quick to point out, this episode reveals our allegiance to the "fifth" Down in Fronter, William Goldman, who's myriad musings on the craft of storytelling brought all of us independently to where we are now (on a podcast, thanks, Goldman), and with good reason. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of any of his books - I prefer Which Lie Did I Tell?, but take your pick - and learn something from the source for once, instead of coming to this god damned website and hearing us screw up what we learned from him.
Or just watch the movie. Or read the book. Failing these things, listen to our commentary for The Princess Bride.
I have a tendency to fix your typos.
