I have this really idealized version of Anticon meetings, where they all sit in the boardroom from Richie Rich and attempt, but fail, to converse in linear discourse.
::Ironic Wayne’s World Transition::
Sole: So you’re all here to talk about the digital spring sampler we’re going to throw on iTunes to preview...
Doseone: GEORGE WASHINGTON! HUGER PAINS! SPOON! SPOON! TREE TRUNKS! SPOON!
Sole: Not again… we can’t do anything right. Humanity no longer fills my fancy…
Alex: Okay this is NOT working… writing dialogue is actually quite difficult, especially when one is attempting to recreate a ridiculously esoteric style of delivery and word choice.
Why?: Where did the omnipresent author functioning as a character come from... I feel like I’m in a Vonnegut.
Alex 2 (wearing a moustache and thus villainous and the story’s new antagonist): Or the new Coheed and Cambria comic.
Doseone: This seems relatively normal to me.
SJ Esau: Why am I on Anticon? That makes less sense than the flow of this conversation.
Alex: No seriously, writing dialogue is way too difficult, and breaking the fourth wall is guaranteed humor.
Alex 2: Or dropping references like Pynchon.
All: hahaha! How metatextual!
