Default The Mechanics of a Gimmick...

Okay...I've been here a couple of years thusfar...and never have I had a gimmick. Not that I haven't thought about having one, or secretly wanted one, I just haven't come up with one that I think would work.

A couple of times, ideas for gimmicks that I thought were anywhere from "great" to "genius" have come to me, but indecision as to how to do it usually stops me.

So I ask the few masters of the gimmick here at PWF...what do you take into consideration when contemplating a gimmick??

Thanks in advance for your input.

Late.

If you or someone you know has been caused grief by an "Internet Bully" then you and/or that person is nothing but a little punk ass bitch, and the world would be a better, more manly place if you'd just jump off a fucking bridge already.

Ah suppose that I am the Mastah of the PWF gimmick...at least currahntly...Frahm Hunah S Thompson to Walken to Sahjant Hahtman....so many, so much time spent...

Ah suppose the top few rules Ah Could give you would be...

1. Follow ya Heaht...what makes you happy, joyful, and aroused? Is it a movie stah or a Tv charactah such as HST or is it moah like an attitude...such as ASSHOLE?

2. Make shure...that its easy for you to do. The Hahd paht here...is it has to be easy for you to do...but not so easy anyone could do it...such as Hahtman...I knew enough about Hahtman and Drill Sahjants, in general, to do it pretty easy, but theah came a time when I had to go beyond the quotable Saje...had to make it up on my own...that was easy, yet req-eye-ad....a certain duhgree of creativity...

3. Make shuah...its enjoyable...to you and the postahs here...

4. Use an innah filtah....forinstance...gimmicks that MAC nevah tried...
-Pacino
-De Niro
-Da Pope
-Captain Planet
-Ric Flair

These would have all been funny...but only for a little while...who knows...maybe I'll use them in time...ya nevah know with me...

definately has to be something you are comfortable doing.....in cases such as Walken and Slash's Tony Montana....it requires great effort to post in character....

It was dead on...i'm not saying it wasn't good. But sometimes I had a hard time reading what the hell he was saying.
