It might be sad to think about these two girls all alone on New Year's Eve, singing their little song and dancing around an empty living room, but I have a feeling that things are going to change for these two after this video starts making the rounds at their junior high. I'm sure that as soon as their peers hear their clever lyrics (not to mention their lovely singing voices) and see their amazing choreography the party invitations are going to come rolling in. Soon they'll be at all the coolest parties, playing crazy games like Where In Time Is Carmen Sandiego? and "Carry The Rice Grains Across The Room On A Butter Knife" every weekend. Things will be more relaxed during the week, though: they might go over to one of the cool kids' houses after school and watch a popular afternoon sitcom like Saved By The Bell or Growing Pains. Then they'll head down to the mall to buy Hypercolor shirts and Paula Abdul CDs, grab some pizza at McDonalds and call it a day.
I'm pretty sure this video is going to make these two the most popular girls in their school. Trust me - I know what the kids are into these days.
I was going to say this weird website was cool for a minute. It's a toilet paper roll simulator - which is pretty much the most useless thing I can think of - but I thought its pointlessness was kind of awesome, a good representation of everything that's great about the internet. Then I found out that it's a "piece" by an artist named Rafael Rozendaal who makes all kinds of other weird internet art, like jellotime.com and flamingcursor.com.
Now I just feel like I got tricked into liking art.
I still like this toilet paper roll simulator, though. So much so that I unrolled the entire thing just to see what would happen. I'm not going to spoil it for you, but I will say that it's a little bit disappointing.
It IS art, though. Maybe I just don't "get it."
