Hm, I don't know why that's so cool, but it is.

Okay, I'm the soldier-type hanging out by the giant stone head on the far left.

It made me a girl, with a girly dress. Suddenly, certain things seem to make sense.

I don't get it. Where do I get paid to dance?

Where is everybody?

Can someone teleport me to the Paris thread?
posted by lazymonster at 8:26 PM on June 8, 2007


I can't make myself 300 pounds. Where's my Bible & cigarette? I can't dance without them. This blows.

Actually, I think it's really pretty.

I'm not a woman, but I play one on the internet. This is fun.

Heh, that's actually quite clever.

A most diverting amusement!
Good show, sir!

I got invited to fisticuffs a few times, someone attempted to separate me from my moneybags, and someone else asked me where to score some snuff. It's like being on a street corner in Philadelphia.

Man. I must impersonate a woman on the internet more often. That was highly educational.

For some reason, the setting of the place kind of leaves me at a loss for words... I feel that everything I should say must be cryptic.

The Blue runs at midnight....

I can't punch. Maybe because I'm a chef?

Fun, like playing dolls with history buffs. A good waste of five minutes. :)

That was excellent until firefox had a seizure. Thanks for the pugilistic exploits though.

Me and Citrus Freak are in there totally rocking out.

Or not. But we're there.

I just like saying "GOING TO MOON BRB" and flying straight up.

It is awesome.
But ads that are not selling anything I can identify... make me nervous.

So "Nay nay give me some hay" makes you a horse and "jiminy cricket!" makes you a cricket...are there any others?

Okay, now that I actually flew... that's so fucking awesome.

I imagine plants were there feeding the codes to the users.

I just found this list, now that we know them all....
posted by iconomy at 10:27 PM on June 8, 2007


It made me a woman when I logged in.

And then I spent 10 minutes trying to figure out how to play while dodging skeevy come-ons from weirdos.
posted by darkstar at 11:27 PM on June 8, 2007


So this site... it raises consciousness?
posted by Methylviolet at 11:53 PM on June 8, 2007


OK this is definitely the weirdest chat room ever. I got hit on by a camel, two guys got in a fistfight over who was going to rip my dress off first, and some other guy wanted me to touch his "moobs."

On second thought, this sounds like a normal chat room.

I'm going back to my normal life now...

I saw a horse running around and I noticed there was no username over it, and I thought "I just know there's a joke in here somewhere..."
posted by Uther Bentrazor at 1:00 AM on June 9, 2007


It's funny, you know, no matter how pretty and different you make a chat room, it's still a chat room.

I was flying around while people asked each other a/s/l.

It is strangely beautiful. Designer/artsy types: what would you call the style of the whole thing? It seems familiar. Sort of like Edward Gorey stuff.
posted by Mid at 6:37 AM on June 9, 2007


Mid, I think the term "Victorian" comes closest, but that falls woefully short. I love the art direction though, it's all gorgeous.

Nice use of parallax scrolling, but they really need to add more interesting things to find in the sky.

I don't know which of you Mefites was just trying to chop at me with a sword, but I'm the one who turned into a horse & kicked your sorry Victorian fat ass.

I'm not fat, it was the dress.

Heh, I formed a band of soldiers who did Village People style dances. The Macarena, Everybody dance now, In the navy.
We mobbed gatherings and turned them into dance gigs.
Loads of fun.
