Oh thanks a LOT. After I finished looking at it a little girl called me and said "Seven Days".

Strange, lovely and a little bit scary. Thanks.

Owls are the Devil's eyes and ears.

You know that, don't you?

Great. With the USB driven copy of TorPark I use to walk around the filtering at work, I get no Flash....

Anyone know any more about these folks with the slightly different last names? Maybe it's student work?

I love these sort of 'useless' thingys.

not a huge fan of the "find the hotspot"-ness of it, but the animations were neat.

I hope this isn't some sort of viral campaign. That would spoil it utterly.

I first read the post as "...very strange and very lonely." I wonder if that influenced my experience of it. Anyway, good find, thanks for posting.

Sleevener, I read the same, but corrected myself before clicking. And am now reluctant to. Perhaps I should.

infected, homage to Max Ernst, I think. Neato.

Avoid figurative or obscure language. Since the point of a definition is to explain the meaning of a term to someone who is unfamiliar with its proper application, the use of language that doesn't help such a person learn how to apply the term is pointless. Thus, "happiness is a warm puppy" may be a lovely thought, but it is a lousy definition.

I find it not lovely.

Exquisite! Enjoyed that so much.

..what the hell was that all about? Why'd I just have to click on monochromatic lobsters two dozen times to finish the stupid thing? Monty Python's Complete Waste of Time didn't make me click so much... well come to think of it, it did, but I had a hell of a lot more fun back then.

Public domain images... see this is what i mean. If we actually had more stuff in the public domain, we could make more useless crap like this.

I liked it, very evocative. Thanks.

I got bored, but I looked at it in the morning with my caffeine quota filled.

Interesting. Very similar to the stuff on the White Stripes web site circa their last album, Get Behind Me Satan.

(yeah, I like the Stripes - you kids with your hipster art and hipster music can piss off).

Heck, I thought the Stripes was hipster stuff. God, I'm out of touch with the kids...

Oh, and it would seem that MetaFilter is abandoning its legendary knee-jerk Flash-hating ways: I would've expected more snarkyness in the comments here. (Maybe the 'Flash-is-beneath-me' crowd just doesn't have time/energy for the hate anymore?)

I kid. I like it bunches.

Well, for art's sake!
posted by pracowity at 5:44 AM on February 20, 2007


I really love stuff like this - visually compelling breaks from reality. I'm going to post an AskMe asking for more.

I don't hate it at all, nor do I find it useless. That's probably connected to how I think art in general is not useless.

Thanks!
