There have been good films based on short stories, it’s not impossible in principle if the original’s reworked and expanded well.
The short story is adapted fairly faithfully as the first 10-15 minutes of the film; the rest of the film is “what happened next”.
I’ll do you one better. I didn’t read the article or the story before writing this reply. I’ll come back in an hour or a day and edit this post though, don’t worry!
I’ve heard too many fast tempo rock, funk and blues songs to think that the problem is the instrument. I mean, these are the kind of people that would slow down George Michael’s Faith, Dolly Parton’s Jolene, or Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car (ironically), and they’re already solo acoustic songs (mostly). Even something that…
Hey, you claimed it was a limit of instrumentation, not dedication. I’m saying it’s a limit of imagination.
Yeah, but what about one woman with a guitar?

This is one of those questions that answers itself.
The buttons were devised by Branaic and are subteam emblems. Superman’s not smug, he’s just glad to see you.
“Arguably”? Hey I know this site is a big socialist circle jerk but maybe at least be honest about the abject failure Venezuela has been.
I feel like I finally need to anonymously get this off my chest because it’s been eating away at me for months... despite being a morally repugnant sack of sentient, putrid smegma, I find myself incredibly attracted to Sean Hannity. I go now to the wilderness to die in shame.
Yes. “Let’s reboot ‘High Fidelity’, but throw out all the stuff that makes it funny and relate-able.”
In all its madness the least believable thing about Gotham is that no one gets the Riddler’s super basic riddles within seconds.
That said Bullock’s response to Tetch was great. Raging Barbarians are immune to charm effects after all.
