*UPDATE: Thought I'd put this bit up top, or no-one'll see it. I couldn't quite get the murderer/gravel driveway analogy to work. Something about the nice sound of walking across gravel, even when the person walking towards you is going to kill you. That was the best I could up with as well - other suggestions gratefully received. In Grammar Puss world it would be a murderer pulling a gun out of a really nice handbag, but that doesn't work so well in my world. Sometimes the Muse just passes by, avoiding eye contact altogether.
ANOTHER UPDATE. Some of those Arj and Poopy episodes now have ads in front of them. Gah. See also: 'Tch'.
Also, check the comments section below for a link to another animation using the same D&D script. Fat Roland, you are correct, that one's much better.
Wonder how long I could go on just updating/rewriting the same post? Hmm....
Adverts give me the screaming ab-dabs at the best of times. The only tv adverts I have ever liked:
1. That one for jeans, or classical music or something, where a man and a lady run through walls, then find a wood and run up trees into the sky, shouting at God.
2. That Transformer one.
Anyway, I was watching the television the other day, and something felt wrong. Adverts seemed even more moronic and appalling than usual, and whereas I usually have to shout 'Mnargh!' to myself a few times to block them out, this time I was having to mnargh on what was practically a constant basis, whilst at the same time hitting my head with a tablespoon to distract my brain. And then I realised - all the telly I have seen for ages has either been off DVD sets or dowloaded. I have managed to avoid televisual based adverts for at least three weeks now. The only 'live' television I watch is Life on Mars, and that's on BBC, so no adverts as such.
And then I saw episode seven of Arj and Poopy, and I realised - I may never have to watch television again. It feels good, but simultaneously worrying. Imagine hearing a murderer walking towards you across a sweeping gravel driveway*, and you will be some way towards feeling the mixture of my emotions.
In other news, I like to think of roleplaying games as a great undiscovered artistic medium, where the imagination can freely roam, and strange new worlds be discovered in an interesting, consensual way. But to honest, I don't think it'll shatter anyone's dreams to say that usually, it's more like this.
UPDATE: rest of the episodes of A+P not as good, to be honest. But same people also make the song with the sex-starved rabbit, which is funnier and sweeter than it sounds.
