Hey, Jake!
  8:07pm jofirestone:

hello jake!

I'm kinda on his side with this scrap paper thing. Spend the scrap paper, then get the dry eraser. Just throwing usable stuff away is a no-no.
  8:09pm JakeGould:

Tall and thin? Is that like Sarah Plain and Tall?
  8:09pm JakeGould:

Dry erase is toxic. Scrap paper can be recycled to make more paper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Caryn:

Well, use the scrap paper and then get a notepad. The main point is, use up the scrap paper, don't just chuck it without using it.
  8:13pm harry:

every week when the magnets get mentioned its very suspenseful
  8:13pm beef:

does it cost to call in?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Caryn:

@beef: normal network rates will apply. No extra costs, though.
Avatar 8:21pm Mary Wing:

Greg gave the best answer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Caryn:

If the Ouija board comes up (since that was originally a Parker Bros. board game), the easiest answer would be "make it actually work".
  8:26pm JakeGould:

Women and children, PLEASE CALL THE SHOW!
  8:26pm UCBer:

Ha! So funny Jo!
  8:28pm JakeGould:

Ooo! Scrabble idea! You can play any letter of your name, but if you loose all the letters of your name you loose your identity and become the property of the game owner!
  8:30pm ?:

In fiction, a MacGuffin (sometimes McGuffin or maguffin) is a plot device in the form of some goal, desired object, or other motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Scrabble would include a spinner that tells you that your word must be a noun, verb, adjective, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Caryn:

The Ark of the Covenant is not a MacGuffin, because it is actually central to the plot, not something they supposedly hunt that ends up not being significant.
  8:33pm JakeGould:

Officer Krupke!
  8:36pm JakeGould:

“Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq” were a McGuffin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Caryn:

The money Marion Crane steals in "Psycho" was a MacGuffin.
  8:41pm Travis Love:

I already vote for Dr. Gumshoe I'm upset bc I really wanna play it!
  8:42pm JakeGould:

The stone in “Stone Soup” is a disgusting McGuffin.
  8:43pm harry:

The christmas in home alone is a macguffin
  8:44pm JakeGould:

Jesus in the bible is a McGuffin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Ken From Hyde Park:

How many McGuffins were in "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World"?
  8:46pm JakeGould:

@Ken: Just the main McGuffin. Also, I miss the McDLT.
  8:46pm harry:

Senor Boomerang de Amarillo -gimmick- has terrible knees but strong kicks
  8:47pm JakeGould:

Golden Retrieve: “Golden Showers” Signature move? Pins opponents to the floor and pees all over them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

How about this: George W. Bush as a McGuffin in American history?
  8:48pm JakeGould:

Corgi… Name: “Senor Stubby Stabber!” Signature move? The boots on it’s tiny legs all have switchblades in them so it hops in the air, all four blades come out and stab the opponent.
  8:49pm harry:

Must Love Dogs is a great movie
  8:49pm JakeGould:

@harry: What is “Must Love Dogs?” A cute, Nazi decree?
  8:50pm harry:

Do you guys think the reocurring theme of bluish hues against a fall setting in the film must love dogs represents a rebirth in gods great pool? Thoughts?
  8:50pm JakeGould:

Bassett Hound: “Shirley Basset Hound” Move? She pins you to the ring and starts howling so mournfully—and looking at you so mournfully—you cry and beat yourself to end the match.
  8:52pm JakeGould:

Vote: Ruin a Board Game!
  8:53pm harry:

Vote: poocha libre
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Caryn:

@harry: I see it more as a reference to Wagner's Ring Saga, especially Das Rheingold.
  8:54pm JakeGould:

Vote: Worst Game Ever! (Sorry for not getting the title right. :/)
  8:55pm harry:

@caryn: i so hear that. Evokes a specific tone lost after the initial marks of the french new wave
  8:57pm JakeGould:

Manolo sounded soooooooo creepy right now. Take a nap, dude!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Caryn:

@harry: I see some clear Yasujiro Ozu influences, especially in the initial meeting scenes.
Avatar 8:58pm Mary Wing:

I'm torn, they all had good bits. I'll vote for Poocha Libre
  8:58pm JakeGould:

@MaryWing: You should call in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Poocha Libre!
Avatar 8:59pm Mary Wing:

I suck at games!
  9:01pm harry:

@caryn: yes i so see that specifically at 1:14:03, 55:02:31, 7:41:09. Composition of frames is a mirror of that work.
