colors look great…. The guy is the background seems a little dirty to go along with the clean text and lines in the front. But nice contrast so it work. Love the what looks like clip art in the bottom right… Great use.

And I finally like how all I can read is starring

=)

Front typography looks okay, but the background looks dirty and rushed which takes it away from the quality of the image. Also not sure what the desired effect was on the bottom left hand corner, (the yellow bit) but it looks totally out of wack with everything else.

Not quite sure what wax wrote, but here is the translation i got from www.freetranslation.com:

That entirely schwul bagasch moon enuff opened fired away and netemer nunner gelasse, muiverbabbtes pack, babbisches! HOMOAMI BAGASCH OPENED MOON ENUFF AND NEMMER RUNNER GELASSE, MUIVERBABBTES BABBISCHES PACK, SPECIAL ISCH YOU!!

I dont really think that was the proper translation for some reason…

Beerad

There is so much happening! What was brought over from the last one? I would of least used the little clip art…

Hey ‘kids,’ enough with the f-bomb. If you’re going to speak English say something intelligent, if not cuss in your own tongue. Your design is nice enough but without context or intelligible discourse I’m going to start pulling strikes.

inman

Oh and kindly keep ‘fuck’ out of all thumbs going forward. It’s not going to be tolerated on the homepage. I made some modifications to your last two thumbs…

RevDrLuv

Am I missing something? The “F-bomb” is not even in number four so that wasn’t really a thumbnail of the image. What was the purpose (other than the emulation of hollywood americana)?

inman

I’m glad somebody else saw it Rev since I didn’t keep the originals. Wait, no I’m not—that’s the reason they were replaced.

Beerad

You guys are going crazy with this one… slow down =) It seems all over the place.

I am not digging the lines

inman

I’m feeling the lines. Wish I could get a better feel for what is actually going on in this DSNLG though. Any friendly German’s care to inform an ignorant American swine?

Show me the Liberty Cabbage!

I gave some of these low ratings but as a set i really like them. I don’t understand them at all. my favorite is image 4. I don’t understand it at all. I’m gonna tell you what I’m getting from it though…

We’ve got an american flag, with pink instead of red. and a circle, which I want to be a woman’s egg (because of the pink) but its probably earth. and its going to the moon, which may or may not be communist because its being eclipsed by a star (not phsyically possible) and then there are some other stars (red…commies) that are coming down to earth (or maybe fertilizing an egg).

am i right on?

chickenafro

i like the crudeness of these, especially 7. Some of the earlier ones are not as strong…this last one is good because of the space that was left white. Chaos down below vibe.

so dudes…. go and check the green channel of image 8 !! bring the battlefield to the next level ….

creighton

I’ve been away from the computer for a couple of days, and I come back and an entire 8-image DSNLG is completed. I think this is all quite refreshing and edgy — feels like two people chatty on speed. My favs are #2 (for its sense of space and movement — and isn’t the bright red stuff part of the gold plaque that we sent out into space hoping to communicate with aliens? ), #3 (for its bold composition and overal weight), and #7 (for its composition, simplicity, play on scale and groung/figure relationships).

Image #8: That is some crazy subliminal technological image engineering. Never thought of really playing with channels like that.

These weren’t all incredible, but definitely some of the better stuff that’s been on here for some time. Just feels fresh.

RevDrLuv

Even though it has a few compositional issues, number 3 was my favorite.

inman

That’s hot. I’m on a crappy monitor, did anyone else have to up the contrast to see what was there? Oh and Marc, what language are you speaking in your posts (when not slinging the F-bomb)?

RevDrLuv

Yeah I had to up the contrast as well to see anything.

Beerad

thats messed up!

inman

There was a nice little “Fuck Y’all” in the thumb too. Note the ‘was’ in the previous sentence. Shame Marc is such a dull boy…

RevDrLuv

I think he is callin you a nazi Inman… Thems fightin werds!

inman

Rather, those would be fightin’ words if I was a nazi.

Or is the hidden swastika a jab at our President and his blind medieval crusade sentimentality? We’ll never know if he keeps jibber-jabbering at his mates and ignoring this accompanying dialogue. Boo.

wax

don’t take this personal inman! just thought it was a slick idea to protest against censorship. of course it’s totally exaggerated. never ment to call anyone a nazi. actually we’re the ones that used broken typefaces and shit. the jibber-jabbering as you call it is some frankfurt slang that we use when we don’t want to be understood in public. so don’t try to translate it with some online tool, no use. don’t be mad at me, i’ve been a bad boy.

inman

Nah, I wasn’t taking it personally, the Rev was trying to get me to take it personally. As for the jibber-jabbering, I figured it was either slang or you were just omitting spaces between words and adding double letters to throw off the automated translators.

RevDrLuv

Actually, I thought he was calling you a Nazi. Well maybe not directly, but saying that censorship (like yours for example) leads to facism.

Of course it is not that simple of an argument, but it is a very interesting idea. If I had seen the hidden image before I voted I may have given a better score. Oh well that’s what you get for being so cryptic! :P

inman

Pipe down, you hate monger ;D

And fascist? Pft, you all read the agreement. I pwn you.
