Tony talks about pretention and self-absorption, and how the impetus to create is hollow and void without the ablility to listen and learn and feel...or think about anything outside yourself for a second...

...but he says it in a way that doesn't sound so much like Parachuting Lobsters.

Wow...that's so...close to home.

I think 'Parachuting Lobsters' deserves to be added to the Turkey City Lexicon. What a great way of expressing the idea of self-indulgent artsiness and the way it can be detremental to a story.

You know, I realized after I commented last night that I recently wrote a scene in a story that actually features something very like a humanoid lobster parachuting.

There might be lobsters, and they might be parachuting...

but knowing your writing as I do, i doubt very much if they are parachuting lobsters...

...if you get my meaning...
