It’s taken me far too long to get around to this. With all that extra time, you’d think I could come up with something that looked a little better, but, alas, I have not.

Took you long enough, hoser.

I’ve got to admit, I’m slightly disappointed you fell into the inevitable 42 trap so early on. I had hoped that perhaps we could, exerting a massive amount of self control, skirt that reference throughout the dsnlg.

Ah well, time to get moving. With nothing to do all day, I should have my response up soon. Maybe you’ll be inspired enough to respond in a timely manner, but knowing your busy life of reading and ruining lives, that might be too much to ask.

Cheers!

I had 42 in mind from the very beginning. It would have been near impossible to not include the number.

For the people!

the first image strikes me as terribly cliche and bad.

therabidbanana

Thanks.

Tough luck, Banana.

I’m expecting a real kicking this next one, though, and I’m sure you’ll deliver one.

For future reference, what was so cliche about his image? I’ll admit the text was ultimately predictable, considering the theme, but is that what you were referring to?

it looks like a really bad print piece.. something you might see in the waiting room at the local planned parenthood office..

the layout / cmposition is very simple and boring.. centered photographs.. bottom bar footer type of a thing.. faded background text.. i dunno, its just sort bla.

hope thats clear enough.

IMG 1- stock photos and overly saturated colors are not your friends

So image One: Life is about love? cheating on your woman? typing on the computer? creating big cities? getting money? and taking stills of grandma’s classic moments?

heh godda love that 42.. Donn’t worry i c your faded out words, i interprited from the images though. Number 3 better Rock! Number 2 is great, TriviaL just like the face…

Try add in spontaneity and Trivial features on the nxt set.
