[color=#000000ost_uid0]Perhaps it could be grafted onto another block? It doesn't really work all that well with the Doctor Who block, but I was too lazy to come up with another one to stick on the end of.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]The BSoD seems agreed upon... should we graft the Fledermaus?

[quoteost_uid0][bost_uid0]Neo:[/bost_uid0] Hey, isn't that the cat that was here a minute ago?
[bost_uid0]Trinity:[/bost_uid0] Uh-oh. The cat's taking to long to load. There's a glitch in Matrix.
[bost_uid0]Neo:[/bost_uid0] What's that mea-- Hey, why'd everything turn blue?

[bost_uid0]Mouse:[/bost_uid0] Not the opera puns...! GAK![/quoteost_uid0]
This is what I'd favor. There's also my Mouse scene (quoted by Scooter above, featuring "I repeat, [iost_uid0]two cats[/iost_uid0]"), or else maybe we should try coming up with more jokes for this scene.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Oh, also, we seemed to liked Gatac's, which doesn't overlap either the BSoD or the Mouse scene:
[quoteost_uid0]Agent Smith: It is a day so long in coming I am uncertain how to celebrate it.
Agent Brown: Perhaps...a quiet chuckle.
Agent Smith: Very well. Let us...chuckle.[/quoteost_uid0]
But I'm not certain where in the sequence this is supposed to fit in exactly. Gatac?[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Hm. Difficult really. I usually try to do a block for every major scene, and this was "Agents walk in and look up the staircase". (Yeah, yeah, I'm longwinded.)

I'm not certain we can fit this here. Maybe we should save it for the interrogation of Morpheus.

[color=#000000ost_uid0]OK, here's a couple of thoughts on Mouse's death scene. Two variations on the same joke. Zeke, stop me if you want to hold fast to the three-day-blockwriting limit, but we seem to be at a standstill regarding this particular young rodent.

[quoteost_uid0][bost_uid0]Cypher:[/bost_uid0] So, hypothetically, if I were to kill off all the minor characters one by one - anyone in particular you'd like to see dead?
[bost_uid0]All:[/bost_uid0] [iost_uid0]Mouse.[/iost_uid0]
[bost_uid0]Mouse:[/bost_uid0] GAK![/quoteost_uid0]

or:

[quoteost_uid0][bost_uid0]Cypher:[/bost_uid0] So, hypothetically, if I were to kill off all the minor characters one by one - anybody wanna go first?
[bost_uid0]Apoc:[/bost_uid0] Not me.
[bost_uid0]Switch:[/bost_uid0] Not me.
[bost_uid0]Dozer:[/bost_uid0] Nu-uh.
[bost_uid0]Mouse:[/bost_uid0] GAK![/quoteost_uid0][/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I believe that [iost_uid0]was[/iost_uid0] his vote.

I dunno, I'm not too sure....oo :bigsmile:....*gets distracted*...anyway, I've not voted because I really don't know which one to vote for. There are a lot of good blocks so far, that's for sure [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I'm going to let this block go until I get back from my trip, which will be Sunday afternoon. (I know I said I'd stop it over a week ago, but it just hasn't seemed to be dying down.) At that point I'll definitely be calling a vote unless one has already been called.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]We've got BSoD for the cat/deja vu scene. We need to vote on an independant Mouse block. None of the existing ones have enjoyed overwhelming support. Any forthcoming overwhelming support would be extremely welcome.

Go ahead. Any time you're ready.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]All right, heck with this. Anyone object to the following?

[bost_uid0]Trinity:[/bost_uid0] Uh-oh. The cat's taking to long to load. There's a glitch in Matrix.

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Looks good to me. Except I don't know how (or if) they spelled it in the movie, but in the Bible it's "Nebuchadnezz[bost_uid0]a[/bost_uid0]r". [/colorost_uid0]
