Six Degrees Of Stephen King

    The Six Degrees of Stephen King game applies the "Six Degrees of Separation" concept to sK. In the old Social Group we limited it to movies, TV, and radio, so maybe that's how we should start it this time since that worked well. The idea is someone posts a recognizable name, and the next poster connects that name to sK in terms of movies, TV, or radio only. An example of how the game works: Bonnie Bedelia (an easy one)

    Bonnie Bedelia > Needful Things > sK


    Bonnie Bedelia > Salem's Lot > sK (I apologize for the missing apostrophe, which was Hollywood's idea)

    Rules: Please, no vague connections (such as: Bela Lugosi > Dracula > horror story > sK, or Bram Stoker > scary author > sK). Also, connections are not limited to a total of only six. I'll start…Jack Nicholson (sorry, just kidding)

    Natalie Wood

    I forgot to include in the rules that it's okay to use online and other resources to help with responses. And while I'm here, I'd like to apologize for not realizing I could Edit my original post once I'd submitted a new Thread. o_O

    Yep! Good job! Only, now include a name of yer own. (On my keyboard the forward and back arrows are located above and on the same keys with the period and the comma.)

    Garey Busey - The Simpsons - The Simpsons episode where SK needs a new book idea so he picks up a lamp and calls it a killer lamp and the agent says "You're not even trying anymore, are you?"

    I love that. Does it count?

    Okay, good! But use this format, thusly: Garey Busey > The Simpsons (Gary Busy-[name the ep]) > The Simpsons (sK-[name the ep]) > sK.
