PostSubject: Saturday Symposium Chat 12PM Eastern   Mon Nov 25, 2013 7:06 pm

Because this is a site devoted to the writing of Alias Smith and Jones Fiction, chat on Saturdays will be a course of study that will consist of informative topic discussions related to the influence of the episodes on fan fiction writing.

The format will be similar to a never-ending symposium utilizing the Socratic method of questions, encouraging each participant to develop an awareness. Not of anything in particular, just an awareness.

The course of study is open to all. Many of the subjects are of general interest, not merely of interest to writers.


November 30

Long Johns, Henleys

The focus will be on who wears them, and in which episodes. How they wear them.
Not to exclude characters other than the boys.
This will include the additional informative topic: The behinds that face us: walking away from the camera. The influence of this action on the written word.

For preparatory study it is recommended that participants  watch one or more of the following:

The Pilot = HH in saloon

The Fifth Victim = HH recuperating in bed

Smiler with a Gun = HH and KC at mine entrance

The Posse That Wouldn't Quit= HH and KC in bunkhouse

Night of the Red Dog = HH and KC panning in river

Everything Else You Can Steal = HH in bed

The Man Who Broke the Bank at Red Gap = Kid in bed



December 14

Oh BJ thank you.

At last I feel this site is fulfilling its true purpose and has risen to the intellectual heights I had long hoped for.

A symposium!

We are leaders in the creative literary arts. At last we can share our experience of the keyboard. The commas we have struggled with. The change of tense that so long taunted us. The error of the misplaced speech mark. After all was it not Tolstoy who first wrote “ain’t no oneavitch that fast.”

An in depth look at the themes so relevant to the show is also a rare boon. On many occasions I have studied the Henley and long johns wondering if I was the only one to notice the slight nuance of a crumpled leg or rumpled rear. When writing a scene involving items of clothing is it always wise to show them from the back or would a forward strut be more appreciated by the audience? Now at last these precarious themes can be aired and resolved.

I look forward to the discussion on Eating and Manners. As a scholar of the boys’ habits I have struggled with the need to provide a second cup of coffee and whether the right terminology is a forkful of pie or a spoonful. I will put aside all trivial pursuits such as paying the bills and buying food and shall endeavour to be there on Saturday.

WAHHHH...  I have to do my annual cleaning today and may miss it!
 
Wine, Heyes' coffee, chocolate, beer, eating patterns... what a great topic.
 
I'll leave early and hurry back... maybe I can get in at the end.  It's utilizing a man and a jeep in the removal of apple trees.  
 
By the way, chocolate with NO nuts.  Partial to milk chocolate.
And I'm preferring red wines lately.
 
Hope to see you sooner than later...  bal
