Jason Nelson made me insane
June 12, 2006 11:11 AM   Subscribe

For those who never have seen anything by Jason Nelson. Check out these... uh.... things he made. For instance, there is Uncontrollable Semantics, which is a program that has something to do with words and music and shapes and mice. And then there is the Hermeticon, which apparently is a thing that utilizes letters and 80's kid commerical videos. Or the slot machine that tells you how you will die.

Here is his homepage. And, no, I don't understand it either.

The Death Spin is fun. "A vagrant mistakes you for a 'parking lot god' and worships you with knives"...that's how I'm going to die. Thanks for spoiling the surprise, Jason!

I like the Hermeticon, even though it gave me a headache.

Great, looks like I'm going to die ages and ages and ages from now, after being electrocuted multiple times by people I love, blood disease, getting parts of me erased, and doing multiple things within the next 72 hours that'll wind up killing me. Whenever that is. I'm up to like 347 points right now. I'm gonna be one of those goddamn heads on Futurama. Can't I just die in my sleep next week?

Excellent site. Many thanks. This seems more like a home page.

in Hermeticon, e = which is esteemed by childish minds. Does that mean me?

The slot machine lost credibility when it assumed that I donated sperm in college - I thought it knew me! So I will just continue styling my hair, adjusting my clothes etc.
Does anyone know how long it took the artist to assemble these sites?

"Someone you have yet to meet but will grow to love will electrocute you in your sleep."

Good for me, and a bonus spin as well! Sweet!

Sooo bogus. I've never been to college.

I've never donated sperm, either; I'm all about bartering.

Fun stuff, btw. :D
