Topic: What Are You Doing, Movie? :: Glossary

Hey folks, something we've been working on is now available on the blog, and will later be added to and edited, as well as potentially made easily accessible from the home page if it becomes a thing.

That is the WAYDM glossary.

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on what's there, and any terms you'd like us to add to the pile.

Re: What Are You Doing, Movie? :: Glossary

Hee hee...it's there often, maybe half and half. The ones doing most of the drinking are myself and Dorkman, although Ryan will occasionally have a drink, and once or twice Trey has as well.

Although I'm not quite sure what cynicism tastes like...or how you would bottle it hmm It's a prospect worth looking into though.

Re: What Are You Doing, Movie? :: Glossary

About to addend the glossary with whatever new ones we've been talking about since the original posting, remind me of what should go in there.

I have "go the the mansion," help a brother out.

EDIT: Oh, and a Yoda's Saber moment, where something is apparently added just to make people cheer at midnight and loses value after opening night exponentially.

Re: What Are You Doing, Movie? :: Glossary

There was another one talked about during The Core. Did you save the chat log? I remember typing it in while you were talking about it so it was in the log, but it escapes me now.

Re: What Are You Doing, Movie? :: Glossary

Well the ones I remember, was from the core...Going Tucci.

And also having a Wonderland movie, as opposed to a one piece of magic.

There was something that was mentioned near the beginning of the Truman Show... I can't for the life of me remember it now.

I looked it up and even the almighty Google didn't know.

I looked for this thread for a long time before noticing it was a sticky. I'm retarded.

Anyway, Dorkman went through and added/clarified a bunch of entries in the glossary.

Re: What Are You Doing, Movie? :: Glossary

What is the history and/or meaning of the "day of six" thing in reference to a surprise reveal. You guys have made that reference a lot recently and I can't find it in your glossary. You usually say it so fast that I can't clearly make out what you are saying...
Day of six makena?
Day of sex macana?

I think you're hearing deus ex machina.

Everybody, get up. It's time to slam now. We got a real jam going down. Welcome to the Space Jam. Here's your chance. Do your dance. At the Space Jam. Alright?

Inside baseball was entirely inside baseball to me until I realized it was a metaphor and not a reference to some movie I'd never heard of.

Re: What Are You Doing, Movie? :: Glossary

Yeah, the DiF glossary is just for stuff WE made up, either some expression we coined in a commentary and then kept using (magic bean, Goldblums), or an expression that is SO *ahem* inside baseball that the average listener probably hasn't ever heard it before (footprint in the snow).

Phrases like deus ex machina or inside baseball, we didn't invent 'em, we're just usin' em.

But I don't think we've invented any DiF-centric phrases in quite a while.   At least I can't think of any... anyone else?

Re: What Are You Doing, Movie? :: Glossary

Yeah, deus ex machine predates us by a couple thousand years, so I don't think we can take much credit on that one.

"Coffee and bagels" doesn't have an entry yet, I'll write one up.

I feel like I want "It was so cold that night..." to be a thing, too.

Re: What Are You Doing, Movie? :: Glossary

Just, "you can only remove or re-arrange." Basically. But we refer to Phantom Editing as a potential fix often, and folks might not know what that shit is.

You're forgetting "Teague-interesting", although I'm pretty sure that only showed up in one or two commentaries.
