    I am envisioning a JRPG whose combat mechanics revolve completely around urban hand gestures.

    Huh. I thought that this was something that was invented for “Men on Film” on In Living Color. (I even remember the Z-snap from a sketch.) Life< ->art?

    I could be wrong, but I believe this is from a Marlon Riggs film, or is at least featured in one.

    I’m pretty sure it’s from a documentary called ‘Tongues Untied’, about being black and gay.

    it’s from Marlon Riggs’ film “Tongues Untied” about homophobia and racism, originally aired on PBS in the early ’90s. highly recommended.

    Rich from FourFour posted this a while back, and cites the source as a 1990s documentary called Tongues Untied (http://fourfour.typepad.com/fourfour/2009/11/dont-mess-with-a-snap-diva.html) Brilliant isn’t it?

    As soon as I saw “Don’t mess with the snap diva” I knew which movie this was. “Tongues Untied”, by Marlon Riggs. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tongues_Untied — once seen, never forgotten.

    Great movie.

    Also if in the process of snapping you smack yourself in the face; consider yourself a complete fool.

    My cheek hurts.
