BramTV [flash] [possibly NSFW] Art + interaction = data-dandy behaviour. If you like to be in control you may well find this extremely annoying.

Warning: Fills Firefox's "back button history" with itself, making it difficult to get back to MeFi. Totally fucking annoying and worth deleting from the front page.

Interesting. With ad/flash/javascript blocked I get textual gibberish and a (not surprisingly) broken interface.

Based on surlycat's descrpition, I'm going to wait before I turn off the blockers and allow others to be my guinea pig.

It's pretty much the same thing with flash and JS, except there are random sounds and noises to go along with the random text. In other words...

That's not baby Jesus! That's surly, rebellious long-haired hippy-emo Teen Jesus!

I had a very different experience. I found this very engaging. After I got over the annoyance of windows resizing, multiple windows, random sounds and colours, unpredictable results of clicking on areas, I just went with the whatever. It's art. It's not malicious. It just goes deeper and deeper. I very much liked the randomness of it. Sorry that you weren't able to get into it.
[loquacious] Turn off your blockers and go with the flow.
[surlycat] What sort of browser are you using that depends on the 'back button' to navigate? I feel a call for deletion because it fills your 'back button' is a bit harsh.

I will. I didn't mean to come off as too negative, as I'm usually all over this kind of random art stuff.

I know that from your posts and comments, loquacious. You didn't come off as negative at all, just cautious. I was just encouraging you. Throw caution to the wind.

It goes to fast for me to read anything.

Some people are just not ready.

Sorry, I'd like to say I like this, but I'm really not getting anything out of it. Maybe it's just going too fast.

it's less confusing a bit if you click 'pause' underneath, then consciously choose a collage to watch.

Je n'ai que mon nom.
