wtf is this dsnlg about?

nerdartist

i think it’s about candy. i don’t think there’s anything deeper to it than that…

alexk

i think it’s suposed to be about how candy feels about being munched on

xavi

I feel it just as candy related situations/landscapes. The only common is “candy” and the rest is in the air. Isn’t it nerd? So that can be so deep as we want… that could be just a few deep or really deep. That’s the mission of this conversation, to explore candy sides…

nerdartist

I don’t know if you get reruns of “That 70s Show” in Barcelona, xavi, but there’s one character — the foreign exchange student from a generic Spanish speaking South American country — who is obsessed with candy.

So every time I think about this dsnlg, I hear Fez saying “Mmmm, candy.”

And then the “I Taste Just Like Candy” song gets stuck in my head…

Though we can definitely move into the candy-coated views of life aspect…

The best designlogues are both visually cohesive and conceptually provocative.

If a person chooses to create a response that is more os a visual exercise (like this one) then I think the aesthetic cohesiveness between the initiator’s and conspirator’s images should be greater. So while the dialogue in this latest entry is really funny, I think the image loses something in throwing the style of the previous design out with the bath-water. (Or whatever kind of liquid those M&M’s are falling into… that one does look rather horrified)

nerdartist

Rev, you’re so right.

I guess the way I was relating this to the last piece in my head is from how xavi annotated it - what does a candy think as it’s about to be eaten? Maybe there’s a whole philosophical and religious anarchy in the world of sweets.

But depicting “i’m going to be eaten some day” doesn’t seem like a topic that’ll last for a whole dsnlg.

I can’t wait to see how xavi reframes it…

xavi

Sorry for time delay I’ts coming soon nerdartis!

xavi

Nerd & people, I’m really, really really really really sorry for time delay. I’ve been really (teally really really) busy lastly and I’d no time enough to do everything. But here we have an answer.

m&m’s growing from a windows XP candy-like landsacape.

I hope we will take a fun direction! :-p

that’s funny. but the legs are a bit stumpy…I know you were trying to make them look like they were buried in the tongue…uh…papillae? right?

Lincoln

am I wrong on the tongue? are we not in someone’s mouth? is this just some tripped out field? what am I doing here?

inman

I know you’re all eager with anticipation, but I’m moving, so I won’t be getting to this for a few weeks. Sorry xavi :(
