A collection of ideas #1

Think Fast...

New Improv Game:Sit, Stand, Heart Attack
Essentially after Sit/Stand/Lean or Sit/Stand/Lie Down, but one person must always be having a heart attack. Haven't tried it out yet, but it should be hilarious.

Optimus Prime with no legs...Pessimus Prime

A biker gang made out of mathematicians...Hell's Angles

A special wish

After a few months of limping along with a degrading phone, I finally replaced my loyal LG 6070 with a ass-kicking Blackberry Pearl. I mean, just look at that wicked flash website! Anyway, the main point of interface with the Blackberry Pearl is the beautiful, backlit trackball (my friends have affectionately called it the Blackberry Clit - it just demands to be touched). I love it - it makes moving through menus so fast.

However, I got an idea the other day when stumbling on the fact that I can use Bluetooth to connect my Pearl random laptops nearby. Could someone PLEASE write some code so that I can connect by Bluetooth to a laptop, then take my Pearl and turn it UPSIDE DOWN so that it effectively becomes a wireless mouse? Left-clicking would be equivalent to pushing the Pearl down so the trackball "clicks" in, and right-clicking could be automatically assigned to one of the three buttons adorning the side of the pearl. Or, if you're a Human-Computer Interaction snob then you have a Mac and don't need right-clicking.

Please, someone make my day!

What's on your mind?

Earlier today, I recorded for an art project with a student in the Queen's film department. I'm not going to give up too much, since it's going to be on display in mid-February. For the project, I had to sit in a room by myself and a camera recorded me for fifteen straight minutes, and I was directed to speak about whatever I wanted.

Well, it turned out that I spent most of my time talking about house cleaning. Yes, despite the oodles of creativity I'm supposed to have, I had an imaginary conversation about cleaning my house. I guess this really shows what's on my mind.

Realtime Art Manifesto

I just read the Realtime Art Manifesto. It is one of those documents I'll obviously have to read again, preferably out loud, with lots of Guinness running through my bloodstream.
