WHEEEE! Procrastination!!  
I SHOULD be doing homework and vacuuming. But I just paid all the bills, did the dishes and watered the plants, so that means I get to mess around for a little bit as a reward. Right? RIGHT??!?

Here, I am either doing you a big favor, boring you, or screwing you over hard time. Big Fish Games. They have free downloads that you can play for a full hour before deciding if you want the game. I enjoy that because most games (90-95%) I'm bored with in WAY under an hour. On the other hand, I just blew 40 bucks from my Fund That Does Not Exist Filled With Money I Do Not Have to buy two games.

One was Big Kahuna Reef II. It's sort of like Bejeweled (and I'm a sucker for puzzle games) but the higher you get the more fish you unlock. So you get to add whatever unlocked fish you like to a little underwater reef you can watch. It's like a puzzle game/virtual fish program, which is SO me. If you download it and try it, click on the little swarm of tiny fishes over and over and over. You can almost HEAR your processor scream as it tries to work out all the little fish vectors! Amusing!

The second is Snapshot Adventures - Secret of Bird Island. I'm ASSUMING it's like Pokemon Snap, but seeing as I've never played it it's just a guess. You go around trying to get nicely zoomed and centered wildlife shots, and the further you get, the better accessories you get to get better photos. The pics get harder to catch, too. Also, you can design your own bird! Share pics with friends! It's so not-like-every-other-game and I'm a mini-photography geek anyways, that I neeeeeeeded to own it.

If you download either, let me know what you think. But you might want to go and just try a bunch of games anyways, most are pretty basic, so you can kill an entire afternoon for free playing lots of different games.

Also, I created a crappy piece of High Art that no one likes and is filled with deep philosophical commentary, unless it isn't. It's stupid and you won't like it. So don't go there. (And no, I'm not being facetious or using reverse psychology, it's crap and no one likes it.)

I just started thinking of the TISM song "Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me" o.o

I am unclear on the connection between your comment and my post. Can you elaborate?

The TISM music video has rabbits in it.

Hey, I like that. If no one likes the original "message" of the artwork I'll change it to sex!
krystalemerges on October 4th, 2007 07:23 pm (UTC)
always a good choice as "Sex Sells"...remember that for titling the next piece...

It should be a picture of something totally unrelated to sex, too, because that would be funnier.

I'm playing it right now.

Now you understand the whole "I am either doing you a big favor... or screwing you over hard time" thing!

I don't think it is crap. I do think that it is kind of burnie on the eyes though. Kind of bright. Would not know where to hang it....
Fritters: Muttley Laugh - I have no idea who madefritters on October 4th, 2007 06:46 pm (UTC)
It's supposed to be bright because of the fact that the primary colors speak to the primitiveness of the basics of human communication. The brightness also ties into the underlying positiveness of the message.

I've been taking college art classes. Can you tell?

Very PeterMaxian!
(Not in my room, but I can think of good uses for that kind of thing...)

It has deep social commentary embedded within it, unless you count the fact I just had the image pop into my head and worked out the deep social commentary later. So it's dual purpose. It's both high art and crap all at the same time ^_^

So is this the non-melting pot of America due to people's desires to isolate themselves through self interests and technology?
Fritters: Art by Frittersfritters on October 4th, 2007 07:30 pm (UTC)
No, it's an allegory on the positive aspects of communication, the fact that nothing goes unheard, with an underlying negativity of the fading aspect of all information. I like yours, too, though! It's fun finding hoity-toity meaning that isn't necessarily there, isn't it?

Well I've been listening to This Week in Tech (TWiT) Podcasts, and a book they recommended was Freakonimcs; where the discussion went to the US as a great melting pot is becoming a collection of ala carte dishes and wondering why there is less harmony in stuff.

I connected that with "rabbit ears" (TV antennae) and people plugging in to tune out.

So obviously I have too much time on my hands........

The rabbit ears title is SUPPOSED to connect to the antennae, actually. It's almost impossible for me to create ANYTHING without humor or a visual pun sneaking in.
