Books with the same kind of story?
« on: March 21, 2009, 11:22:39 PM »
I heard that The Village was accused of copying a story elements from the book Running Out of Time (1995). Some say both the film and book have the same plots. I don't know if anyone stole the plot idea but it is interesting...

Also the book The Giver,written by Lois Lowry, is a little bit like The Village. It is about a child who lives in a village and finds out what is really taking place. The Giver is different because the story goes towards different paths, but there are some similarities.

Anyone else know about this?
Well do have him come forward.

I remember reading something about that, but just thought it was some disgruntled woman.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

you're so funny.  no.  she didn't like the book.

The Village does bear similiarities to The Giver.  The Giver bears similarities to The Clan of the Cave Bear.

The Giver-Mogur.

I wonder if he ever found the girl.  The girl who "ran" away.

now, let me think about society at large for a moment.


okay.  so if time is a line, then that means time must have the ability to "run" both ways.


how'd we get on nylons?

Well, we were looking at our system of beliefs, etc.

The things that make us feel safe, comfortable.

No it doesn't. Imagine you, sketching a line.
You start at one point and you move your pencil to another point (doesn't matter if it's left, right, up, down or diagonal). You are always going from one point to another. As soon as you're going back the other way, you are making a new line. If you make a turn, you're not sketching a line anymore, you're sketching an arc.

That's basically the same with time. It goes from start to the end. Only god knows where the start was, and I believe no one knows where the end will be. But it is always going somewhere new, not back.
We can breath in space,
they just don't want us to escape...

I agree.  Yes.  My back is hurting.  Bearable.  Then do you believe Time aware?

Never going back.  Possible.  Affecting the past as I affect the future.

multi-tasking.

walking, talking, and chewing bubblegum.

kind of thing.

I was just thinking about the rocking chair, David Dunn, and brittle bone disease.

I just wrote this.

Do you ever see the notes
the qualities

oh my
oh my

the grand supreme

the simple
simple
simple

take it together
take it apart

make it math
make it words
make it art

put it together

set it apart

look too close
look from a distance


Then I named it Swan.

Now I'm going to think about my usage of the word it.

two letters.

The name David means Private.

The reference to Dunn was in reference to the Dunn Mare from The Clan of the Cave Bear series.

The man I called Dummy yesterday didn't get it.

myrr  weird mermaids, mermen,

what becomes of moving forward and backwards
other than rocking?

movement comes within the moving

The name David means Beloved.

retirement plans in order
the young man calls me girl

Good morning.

almost feels like sewing

If I were to make a quilt.

every yesterday has touched today
and today has touched tommorrow

something like that

Good morning.

Dana, you're posts aren't even related to the subject.
