|<mypalmike> I couldn't do meta today for some reason.|
|<Axolotl> Yay! It's the snub nosed langurs! |
|<Lauren> Mort, I just love your caption today. |
|<guyPaulo> Those are some ugly monkies.|
|<Carol> They are like nightmare skull babies. And ha ha, Mort; but nobody carves on me unless they are, like, trying to save my life.|
|<obtuse> BUT WHAT IF BREAST ENLARGEMENT WAS THE ONLY WAY TO SAVE YOUR LIFE!!!!!?|
|<guyPaulo> Hey, I got an idea for next Thursday. Each monkie gets to pick his own theme (Crass, sexist, meta, Pun, etc), and the other monkies get to try and guess what theme is being used. You could restrict it to previously used themes or just allow any wild theme idea to flow. |
|<ajiav> mort, what is the current formula for choosing pictures; you mentioned a few weeks back that you were fine-tuning this method or something?|
|<ajiav> Is there any particular way of choosing pictures that inspires better captioning?|
|<Mort> Currently I try and pick the top three photos that I haven't used before. |
It's almost impossible to predict how inspiring a set of images will be, you would almost have to work out every possible caption in advance.
All I know is that interesting people and animals are good because you can give them voices. Also images with lots of details in.
|<Jellyloo> I have found this to be true with my puppets as well.|
|<Mort> Your "puppets" are 3Suns and Obtuse?|
|<Jellyloo> Oh how they squirm when I try to employ them as real puppets. They must learn not to resist.|
|<Mort> Ok, I need to go take a cold shower now.|
