AReader: Fine work sir!
Also a very warm welcome back to seant for his superb contributions. Shame you're not sticking around - it's awful quiet here these days...
The Harris Mann Line
What do you mean you don’t like scallops?
Glad you dropped us a line seant! Cheers Goatboy!
Online toy. Inspiration for Mercedes Freeform. Designers imagine Bosh riding along design lines, and add more and more lines with hope of setting record ride time.
Whose line is it anyway?
Game for up to four designers, usually performed infront of live studio audience. Moderator decides direction, and designers take turn adding lines until the bell sounds. Points awarded for big laughs.
The Chorus Line
An over-dramatic and needlessly busy Line that cynically manipulates your emotions with maddeningly infuriating musical theatre stylings before performing a needlessly overcomplicated finale, leaving you horsewhipped into blubbering capitulation and the need of a stiff drink. (See also Party Line)
The Line of Fire
A line so foul that one look sets fire to your retina’s, resulting in irreversible ocular distress. Retching optional. A prime example being the Ferrari California. (See also Gag Line)
The What's My Line The line that everyone recognises as so obvious once they're in on the joke, but is otherwise strangely odd but familiar all at the same time. Typified by late 90's and early 00's Korean and latterly Chinese manufacturers. 'I'm sure I know this'
The Rock Isand Line The strangely influential line that many massively respected practitioners repeatedly cite as having been the reason they're in the business, even though the original has ended up being marginalised, perhaps even seen as a guilty sectret, and subsequently largely ignored by all but practioners and esoterica obsessed observers of other arts such as Kermode and The Dodge Brothers.
The Line in The Sand Typically traced in the orange corrugated flanks of and by the skinny tyres of a dusty Merhari at a beach side surf bar on the Atlantic coast of la belle France. Some how it's sheer wrongness makes it right again. Strange beauty.
Her butt looks like a couple of badly parked VW Beetles in those slacks
