I am either proud or disgraced

Many years ago, back when I was first making films with any seriousness, I helped to make a short film entitled RRRR. I did not write it, nor did I direct it. The movie was—quite intentionally—relevant to nothing. The only comment it received on YouTube was “not funny.”

The central (only?) point of the movie was that you couldn’t play the word ‘RRRR’ in Scrabble.

…until this week, when Mattel announced a new version of Scrabble that allows the use of proper nouns. Since RRRR is the title of the film, it is a proper noun and therefore a playable Scrabble word!

I’m so, so sorry.
