The Word Wizard! Segue

Keep your Fridays funky and fresh…and nerd out with your word out. ;D

Connecting the dots ;D

Beloved by some and laughed at by all, Gob (pronounced like the Biblical ‘Job’) Bluth cemented The Segway into our cultural memories. So much so, in fact, that the common spelling of the verb has shifted. Google searchers ask, ‘Is it segway or segue?’ (And I started my search with ‘segueway.’ Eeeshk.)

For my college buds who studied Italian, check this out: ‘segue’ comes from the Italian seguire. But no matter how it’s spelled or where it comes from, the act of getting from one point to another is crucial to storytelling, and it isn’t as straightforward as it seems.

Today I’m trying to reach 10,000 total views to my blog. I’ll be re-sharing different posts on good ol’ Facebook, and I’m experimenting with different ways of segueing from post to post, connecting the train of dots that exist in my mind, but isn’t always clear to readers. Let’s see how this goes, and if you want to help out, explore some more Word Wizard cartoons by checking out the index. They’re good for a clink ‘n’ a smile 🙂

segue: v.  “to move seamlessly from one activity to another.” n. “an uninterrupted transition from one piece of music or film scene [or blog post ;D] to another.”

[Wordpress UI has changed. Serious photo uploading problems. But it’s Friday, so…@#!* it. For the real-real animation, visit Smurk’s Facebook page–and make sure to ‘Like’!]
