More power! *grunt grunt*
Please read the caption before the commentary lest I give out a spoiler or two.
This is one of my favorites of the last few months. From the picture, to the story, to the gradient background I tried to somewhat make look like wood, I am pretty pleased with this creation.
The moment I saw the picture, those three magic words (not quality, freshness, and flavor) popped into my head, and I just KNEW what it was going to be about. The "hard part" was getting the advertising copy to flow well, and not give away the punchline too quickly. It also wasn't a straight line to draw comparisons from woodworking / house flipping to TG tricks of the trade.
There have been manly shows like these for MANY years, from Yankee Workshop to American Restoration .. and female relationship programs from Phil Donahue to Dr. Phil, but I don't THINK they've ever been combined .. UNTIL NOW! Who knows, there could be an actual audience for it! I seem to recall a TG story where characters from Home Improvement ended up swapping bodies, and I can't remember how it ended, though I think it was written in a style like the mind swapping episode of Gilligan's Island.
As I was writing this, Elise posted a comment at Rachel's Haven. It made me squee!
Dee, you should be quite proud of yourself about this caption! It is so creative and funny and just perfect!! And I really really loved the shiny hose she's wearing. Ciao! EliseI'm really glad that I don't put titles IN my captions, as I most likely would've had to use my zinger as the name of the caption, and once you've seen it, WHY BOTHER making the caption?
Overall, its making captions like this one that keeps me interested in making more. There are always times where you look at something you made and wonder if you are just going through the motions, because what you had in your mind wasn't executed the way you wanted. Then you make something that just picks up your spirits and turns out better than you expected and all is well with the world!
