I don't even know how I would explain it to a search engine....
Shocked
And as far as I know its never been the plot of a
movie, video-game, or TV series.

This is the plot I want for the book...
Very Happy

A Story set in a world where everyone is happy to talk to everyone, strangers will talk to you out the blue, in the same way they would, if they had been friends with you for life.
Everywhere where people congregate with each other people will stop and talk, if they want to, or just(maybe) carry on walking if they don't.
(body language?...??)
Everyone is friendly and will talk to everyone, everywhere, and at ANY random time.
A far as I see it, Cinema would be Psycho-culturally INCAPABLE of EVER making a movie with that premise.
ESPECIALLY HOLLYWOOD.
I mean, imagine a Tom Cruise movie where he ACTUALLY talks to LOTS of random strangers. I can just hear the Starbucks Lattes get spat from NORMIE directors mouths onto Hollister Sweaters, at the enterprising, derring-do idea.

Because as far as Hollywood is concerned we all have to be distant from people we have not already been fond of, established "rapour" and other such things.

I think that's the wrong kind of help, Zanzer. Very Happy

Aren't there movies about guy hitting on/talking to a lot of stranger girls ? Hitch to name one.

Unless you mean the gay type (talking to guys) then i have no idea.

I am now really curious what you're looking after

Surprised

Rather than try and explain it in concepts to you STN (because that's never worked before) I'll try and be a fiction "coder" and "program" some "Fiction code" for you, using the code tags.

Please don't steal my "Code", I might want to work it into a "program"....or "Book" as its been called...

*edit*_Although, TBH I just knocked this up real quick to try and explain, and I recognise my "Code" is a little bit slap-dash_*edit*

Here's some Fiction "Code" to help you understand what I am trying to say:

Code:


"Some Fancy Book Title"

Chapter One:
Page One:

Steve got up as happy as a 'pea in a pod' in his alabaster white dome, in sunny.../// SOME_WHERE?_I_DUNNO ///

The sun was shining outside, and it was time for him to go to work. He gazed knowingly through the semi-circular windows at the blue skies. The air tasted sweet like aniseed and vanilla, and his data-bank watch which could be described aesthetically as being reminiscent of a vintage 80's model was, apart from this aesthetic, deceptively advanced.

Just then, someone whom he had never even met before, came up out the blue, and started talking to him.
She greeted Steve at his house, neither of them had ever met each other before. She told him her name was anatalyia, and that she was visiting from the Maldives (8000 miles away) for work at a clients request.
He asks(in conversation) how long the journey takes, she says about 10 minutes.
He asks(in conversation) how busy it was, she said the train was very busy, and that it would be busy shuttling people all day.

//Lots of people, travelling lots of places, very fast, with the same frequency as a Subway train

Steve contemplates the glorious day, a ponders how many conversations he might have...there was one day he had(by his reckoning)  about 200 conversations with people he'd never met, from all parts of the world, who had just stopped and said hello, and started a conversation with him..


BUT BACK IN THE REALL WORLD...NOONE TALKS TO ANYONE EVER...AND I'M LONELY..

Its like I'm trying to get some kind of escape from fiction....what would you call that I wonder esca.p.is... something....escapeis....hmm Rolling Eyes

Escapism maybe???....

I always find it beautiful when games, books, and movies transcend beyond language barriers.

When people can just understand one another through their shared experiences.

The posts above are not an example of that. Someone please translate! Wink

From your first post, Pleasantville sounds similar.

Well to a mindless, un-enlightened, basic-bro; such as yourself, a mere tourist to actually having actually lived like you, I can imagine why you would think that.

I can attest to METHOS being a basic-bro Laughing

I think my post here is inaccurate...
I have been making unsupported claims about someone, and being inaccurate, I've shown the importance of accuracy when you want to insult someone. Smile
For example I use the word mindless, which is were I have made a claim without evidence, and made a gross assumption about ++METHOS.
Mindless should be replaced with creatively-feckless..
Also I would replace "a mere tourist to actually having actually lived" to
"possibly a mere tourist to actually having actually lived...."
So if I were to revise it for accuracy, it would now read:
Well to a creatively-feckless, un-enlightened, basic-bro, such as yourself; possibly a mere tourist to actually having actually lived like you, I can imagine why you would think that.
