mogigraphia (moj-i-GRAF-ee-uh) noun: Writer’s cramp. [From Greek mogis (with difficulty) + graph (writing).]
Tennis players have their elbows, athletes have their feet, so what do writers get? They get their cramps. Mogigraphia is a fancy name for a writer’s cramp. Advanced writers go for a block. For the ultimate, we recommend carpal tunnel syndrome. A synonym of mogigraphia is graphospasm. -Anu Garg (gargATwordsmith.org)
Received two DVDs in the mail, just in time for Christmas: Serenity and Sin City: Recut & Extended. Both are wonderful, absolutely fantastic, though with Serenity, I found Joss Whedon’s commentary just a bit slow – a cast commentary would have been great, even better. But the outtakes and deleted scenes are delicious, and there’s already talk about a sequel on the Sci-Fi channel. Oh, if only. Serenity kicks the @$$ of Star Wars I, II, and III any old day. And Sin City? I actually expected to be grossed out more. Of course, I’m a repeat offender when it comes to the books, so maybe I was already desensitized.
The bunnies strike back! Star Wars in 30 seconds! With outtakes!
