This is pretty and disturbing.

I'm reminded of a song lyric (mine) ...

my daddy looked at me funny, just before he turned into smoke
and the people along the riverbank scattered like mist

Regardless of which parallel MetaVerse I've wandered into today, I do think this is kind of a neat idea.

I just wish I could find the one with the unprofessional purple plaid background again.

[Yes, this was posted previously; it got nixed at the time, it's fine for it to be a new post. Carry on.]

Oh, how can I come in here and yell "double" when Cortex has already taken care it of it. Sigh.

Wait. The other post was deleted? Seems the longer I'm here, the less I know how it works.

Anyone who wanted to come in here and shout Double just got smoked.

Fuck, that is creepy. Very well executed but tends to be the kinda art I *don't* (i.e. actively do not) want to look at, which may well mean that it is quite successful. Very interesting.

This comment, this comment... is just SOOO much better than the much-much-more-common "this isn't art because I don't like it" sort of post that we usually get in art threads at Mefi. I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank you for it.
