Let’s Go to the Videotape

The very basic way of bending the adjectives is called positive, as it is the basic form, when one must bend it to an even greater degree, then it is called Comparative, whereas the very highest degree is called superlative.

One of the most important rules for the degree inflection of adjectives is that regular verbs are always inflected with -er / -est except if they have endings other than -y

-er, -ow or consonant + -le, if they have it, then they must degree bends with more or most. e.g., Regular adjectives on a syllable are always inflected with -er / -est: Low / Lower / Lowest

e.g., Regular adjectives on two syllables are inflected with -er / -est if they end in -y, -er, -ow or consonant + -le: Happy / Happier / Happiest

e.g., Regular adjectives on two syllables are usually inflected with more / must: Regular / more Regular / most Regular


“I am just lonely – that is the story of my life”. What is the worst life can offer? That you lose your dog, that you do not see your best friend again?

NO, losing your other half, your only one. The person who has been there for you in ups and downs, losing the person you have shared almost your entire life with, that is the worst thing life has to offer!

After such a BIG tragedy, there are many who go to support groups with disabilities, to help express feelings, exchange experiences and gain the recognition that has been lost.

Then there are others who are more skeptical of seeking help from others, and therefore choose to replace their grief, guilt, and loneliness with isolation from others, as some believe that the "Constructed relationships between people whose only common interest was grief".

Others choose to replace the lost recognition and find a new one through the social media platforms, to encourage themselves and communicate their feelings, without talking about them.

This is exactly what the short story “Let’s go the Videotape” by Fiona Maazel, 2016 is all about.

"Let's go the Videotape" is about Nick who loses his only one, his Wife, and Gus who loses his mother, where they are challenged on grief, loneliness, and isolation.

The father strives to find new ways to get around the grief and support groups, he finds this through social media, which the father finds as a therapeutic way to deal with his feelings of grief.

The story is set in the United States of America. Nick and Gus live in Rhode Island: “Sent in by Nick and Gus Slocomb from Providence, Rhode Island” (l. 61).
