The Scariest Show on Television!
Made this caption for no one in particular, so its a blog exclusive! Its not QUITE a body swap, officially, but more like a gender and social standing swap.
This was made a few weeks ago: the last time I really sat down with the purpose of making captions. I saw the picture (I think on the main screen of Yahoo) and thought it was a good photo for some sort of swap. I mean, the guy is holding a remote control, we can't see what is ON the screen BUT their reactions are somewhat extreme and a bit over-the-top. It really needed to be captioned by someone in my opinion! Might as well have been me right?
From there, it just needed to be fleshed out. Am I completely happy about it? Not really. I probably left some plot points out, and since it was towards the beginning of my medical crap, I definitely kept it PG rated. Why haven't I kept it in the archives and reworked it later on down the line? To be honest, once I figured out it wasn't going to be for someone else, I kind of lost the burning interest in seeing it come alive. Looking at it now, the caption seems like me sleepwalking through the whole creative process, and going through the motions. Sometimes that is good enough, but not this time, I must humbly say.
Health wise, I am doing much better, and I have a followup on Thursday that should give me a much better idea of how things are going to proceed henceforth. I am not jumping in full throttle back into the TG game quite yet, but I hope to ramp up my involvement very soon. Perhaps I'll fire up my programs soon and see if I can muster up some compelling captions in the next week or so!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: How would YOU have handled the picture in the caption above? I'm really interested in what sort of story/plot YOU would have made to go along with the photo.
