Rian's doing an AMA (ask me anything) today at 4:00pm Pacific.

I dunno, I'm working on a few things now. They've both vaguely sci-fi, but very different from Looper. I'm a pretty slow writer. It's sort of a problem.

There's gold here, people. Gold!

Q: I was wondering: what does it feels like to hug JGL? I like to think it's like hugging a gentle rain shower with a beautiful rainbow above.
A: It's like hugging a rainbow made out of sincere kittens.

This is great. Except that the Boss has now posted more on Reddit in the last two hours than he has here in years bitterbittergrumblerumblecomebacktous

Cause this board lacks the excitement it did post-brick. Not to mention that the idea of a bbs board is somewhat dated insofar as web 2.0 is concerned. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy it, but I understand why this place has gone slightly dry. (This being said the movie reactions thread is my reference of what I should watch next.)

Forums without a central focus point--like, say, a general gaming forum or something, where there's a new release of some sort every week--tend to devolve slowly into clubby little corners of the Internet where a small group of dedicated people keep coming back to share inside jokes and be clever at each other. What new people do register at this late stage have a tough time getting into the game, as we've all "known" each other for years at this point.

I hope that doesn't sound bitter or grumpy, it's just the life cycle of these things. The first few months are a fun, crackling, intense time where we're all feeling each other out and talking about everything under the sun. We're in the second phase, where we all know each other well enough that it's like a local hangout.

So, lurkers, my advice to you is to be interesting and funny and join in the damn discussions. There will be enough to talk about at the end of the week, you may as well start by saying hi now.

That was well written and I enjoyed that. I do think of this as my local hang out.

On directing TV other than Breaking Bad:

But what I'd really kill to try, although it would be terrifying because I'm such a big fan of it? Doctor Who.


Allons-y.

I like to think of the forum as my local diner. Without as much heartburn.

Rian directing an episode of Doctor Who. I can't even process how awesome that would be.

Would you call me cynical if I said you could apply this metaphor to any relationship in life, either romantic or friendships?
It's a good point though and one I've seen happen on many other forums, once there's a select group of die hard users and discussion dies down, usually the original point is lost a little and it just becomes a "club house" like you said. I say this as a previous lurker who joined late in the game.
Still, I think spoilery discussions about Looper now the film is out will revitalise things a bit.
Personally, the site still has pride of place in my bookmarks bar in the "Networks" drop down menu with Facebook and Twitter.
