auteur in television
"The auteur in television is like the Great Clock-winder theory of God. He dreams up an idea, creates a concept, sketches it out, then lets others fill it in: producers, directors, story editors, staff writers-a creative extended family that keeps the concept going in the direction he wants it to go."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
