Title: Taglines?
Post by: RottingCorpse on March 06, 2006, 04:22:14 PM
All right, folks I'm looking for taglines for the Women's Studies poster. Here's what I have so far. Let me know what you like and what you hate. I'm also open to new ones.

Class begins soon
Get ready to learn a thing or two
Prepare to be schooled
Cut to the head of the class.
There’s no cutting class.
Anything boys can do . . .
History. Anatomy. Dissection.
Reading. Writing. Revenge.
Equality cuts to the bone.
Cut through the prejudice. Once and for all.
Taking the kindness out of womankind.

You don't actually get any of them into a classroom setting, do you?  It's a troubled weekend in WVA, no?  Not to be one of those people who takes everything literally, but I think the taglines with that sort of bent should be tossed out right away.  However, I don't object to "Get ready to learn a thing or two."  I don't know, I get more from the script than the whole "school of death" thing. 

A lot of those are strong avoids, in my book, for various reasons.

It's a college setting. It deals with Academic ideas. It's called Women's Studies. The whole school motif figures pretty largely.

Maybe something playing with the "women's" part of it?

Yeah, I know... But it's not a movie about the setting.  It's not like suspira:  Girl goes to witch school and is indoctrinated and can't leave.  It has a very different and complex character-driven thrust.  I'm not blind to the setting, but I think you underestimate your own script if you cater to the setting in any way.  The textbook is fine, and cool, but you don't want the story to be about the school.  You've created good characters, good plot, and a fucking political conspiracy!  It's so much larger than Cut to the head on the class!

How about:

"Unravel the Feminine Mystique"

Never mind. That's gay.

i'm hot for teacher
horror goes on double secret probation
there is no big man on campus at this school
if you don't have an open mind, they'll open it for you

and my favorite:

they're closing down the burrito place in the student center?  that is straight bullshit! we should get together a petition or something.  yeah, definitely.  or, i got a buddy on student senate.  i'll talk to him.  no, it's cool.  we pledged together.  god, those burritos are so good.  dammit.  well, we better at least stock up now.

bear in mind that:

1.) it's 2:30 and I'm "buzzed"

2.) I have no idea what the plot of this movie is.

----

A stab in the chest is worth three in the bush

Suffrage has a new meaning (Suffrage redefined; Unadulterated Suffrage... that word has lots of angles to work with)

Sufferage for the new mellinium (see, Sufferage instead of Suffrage?  Rad)

Oh, I always thought he was saying 'Secret Asian Man'

Pronouncing 'Hrothgar' has never been this deadly

Put this in your beer bong and funnel it, frat boy.

And you thought differential equations was scary

No amount of jello shots in the mini-fridge of your soul can handle this

Dormed to death

Shit... I thought this was O-Chem

Not in my vagina!

Part of your eye-catching poster project.  This is a tagline even the half-asleep soccer mom will remember to her grave.  I approve -- wildly.

Nice work guys. Three I like (that I've switched up):

Where class cuts you.
Open your mind, before they open it for you.
And you thought math was scary.

I heartily approve of all of them.  Actually I prefer the two that aren't my own.

and you thought your vegan roommate was scary
and you thought student loans were scary
and you thought coke-fiend RAs were scary
and you thought your Creative Lit classmate's poem about divorce was scary
and you thought diesel punch was scary
and you thought creepy hoodrat townies were scary

wait...creepy hoodrat townies ARE scary! almost as scary as math!

Cass is about to win the race though we've altered his suggestion again to, "Open your mind, before it's opened for you."

And Cass won!  It's on the book on the website as "Open your mind before it gets opened for you."  WS is looking very slick.

How much do you think this will eat into Cass' 15 minutes of fame?
Title: Re: Taglines?

At least you aren't publishing books that won't sell.  Let's see:  Genre rock novel, a slim novella, and a collection of non-fiction essays about underground Americana with illustrations.  Those are my first three.

It's hard to give out cameos to dudes. It's a very female centric story.

But don't they kill a bunch?  I wouldn't mind being killed by any of them.  Well, except I'd probably run away from that hat before the Art Director could close in on me.

yeah, couldn't i die in the strip club massacre?

The promise you made while trapped with us in Tower 2:  If you get out of this alive, you'll stop eating fried pork knuckles.

Give up fried pork knuckles?!?

You say crazy shit in those situations.
