New All that Atari fame means he's now a major celebrity :)
I'm sure one of his entourage will be in touch to acknowledge the greetings :)

Happy Birthday Darrell!
Two out of three people wonder where the other one is.
New Heh... Who linked this site? (Our other Aussie, right?)
Big ol' hard disks from Wade, wasn't it?

Anyway, for some reason I'm reminded of this page: [link|http://www.eatliver.com/i.php?n=2290|Best graffiti].

Can anyone say why?

Yes, 'twas me. I read eatliver from time-to-time.

Is it enough to breathe
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
 
Is it enough to die
Somebody save my life
I'd rather be Anything but Ordinary
Please

New What, no takers? Are you all that blind?
Isn't there a single one of you that sees the link between Meerkat's post and the [link|http://www.eatliver.com/i.php?n=2290|Best graffiti] page? Come on!

Smile,

New Is that the sound they made? Sorry, I can't remember.
New Have you been drinking again?
:-)

It was Wade who posted the [link|http://eatliver.com/i.php?n=2542|hard drive] link, not Meerkat. Are you talking about Meerkat's [link|http://z.iwethey.org/forums/render/content/show?contentid=295834|Atari Fame] post? There are no linkies there.

No, I don't see the link between the graffiti and the HD ad. You're being too obscure for me. Watchoo you talkin' 'bout, Willis?

Bring out the dissection tools!

Cheers,
Scott.
(Who wonders how long this thread can be drawn out. :-)
New The link is between Meerkat's "Atari" post and the graffiti.
New The 8th Graffiti picture?
New Yup.
Scroll down for answer.

























































An elevator button (Otis, I think -- our elevator has similar buttons) doing service as the spaceship in arcade game classic, "Atari Asteroids".

(Now it only remains to find out if the game used to go "chirp", or if Amy is thinking of something else altogether -- tweetybirds, crickets, other Critters...? :-)

New Now I get to be snarky with you, Christian :0)
And give you a big, fat WHOOSH!

The sound of crickets chirping is a diss. Like when a stand-up comic is bombing big time.

But you know I only diss with love :-)
Smile,
Amy
New Is it? Interesting, I didn't know that. Wonder why?
As in,
  1. Why does it mean that?, and
  2. Why would you do that?

New Answer # 2: It. was. a. joke.
/methinks I hear crickets now :-(

Oh well, sometimes they stick to the wall, sometimes they don't. :-)


Answer to question 1: In American pop-culture, the comic device of crickets chirping is used to show when a person performing on stage before an audience is "bombing"/"flopping"/ failing miserably. It means that there is no laughter, no response, the audience is dead, the allusion is that the person is in an empty parking lot, usually at night. If memory serves me, (which it usually spills soup in my lap, and shall get no tip...) this device is/was used in cartoons.


Google-fu to the rescue!
Daffy Duck's trained pigeon act and complicated tap dance number is answered by nothing but crickets chirping in the audience, while Bugs' simple song-and-dance numbers brings wild applause.
[link|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daffy_Duck"|(See paragraph entitled Jones' Daffy)]


Anyway, after that whole "spoof" thread debacle and the "whoosh", I kinda figgered turnabout was fair play.

<shrug>

Takes all the fun out of it.

Still....












neener, neener, neeeeeeeener! :-)
Smile,
Amy
New Ah, OK, now I get it. Great, thanks!
New And here's your hint, over there (in red). HTH! -->
New NT? <blank look> <Whoosh!>
New Yup - it's the only graffito without any text.
