Braingirl

Braingirl - she's brainy, she's bizarre, she's curiously compelling and she has a sidekick named Bag Boy. See all 8 episodes. Flash & sound effects alert, and not safe for work unless you work at a pretty funkified place.

Compelling? P-sha!

I enjoyed it tremendously - it's surprising and unnerving, as these things should be. At least the first piece is. I'm saving the rest for later. Thanks, madamjujujive!

Gee Quonsar, I dunno about your workplace - it would certainly stir things up. But unless you can figure out a way to convert weirdness into cash at your zany Blort blog, I wouldn't do anything that might risk the day job ; )

What everybody said. Seemed pretty inconsistent in tone, which made it a little less impressive than it could have been -- but like Miguel said, suprising and unnerving. I like it, dammit.

Occured to me (especially while watching MeatGirl) that the BrainGirl universe could make for an excellent surreal adventure game.

Braingirl is alright, but Bag Boy is the real star.

"That's Mr. Hefner, my fourth grade teacher."

Yep it's weird goodness. Can I hang out with you Madam?

Hmm, where's Homestar Runner when you need him?

So an electric shock to the rear end, makes her come to life? Is this SFW?

...um, steve_at_Linwood, if you look again you will see that the link had a pretty clear caveat about being nsfw, as well a warning about flash and sounds. Maybe I should have stipulated potentially offensive too, but I kinda think that would apply to almost anything that has a nsfw flag.

I do my MetaTalk homework, honest!

I was just being a smart ass (as usual)... I found it quite amusing...

very strange and fun--I like Fishing and Braingirl's Brain the best...and great use of silhouettes and symbols!
