You don't need to spend $1200 on specialized furniture to make someone talk,
all you need is a hammer.

I think that's my problem. I'm not ecstatic about any of them. I think it's
the lighting really. I'm wondering if all I'm doing is duplicating what's
been done before and not adding anything to it. Maybe this will pan out over
the next few months if I keep at it, maybe it'll just never work and I'll
end up dropping it like the cutter project I wasted so much time on a few
years ago.

The thing is, I realize that this can be beaten (no pun intended), and if I
stick with it, I can do something good. The question is the light ... The
light ... The light.....

Where's my light?

Thanks for your honest criticism,
