Defie this years theme

Post by theCryptofishist » Mon Jan 31, 2005 2:40 pm

Certainly it doesn't do much for me visually and it's too dependent on early 20th century psychiatry (i.e. we don't have good tech to know what's happening in the brain, so lets make up fairy tales about it) to really get my juices flowing. So it that's the theme--what's the counter theme? And how do you express it?

Or shall we all just be Ralph Wiggum and bring sheep's brains in brown paper bags.

I misread this thread as "Defile this year's theme."

Okey-dokey, I thought.

HA- You CAN'T defy the theme! Anything that you "think up" uses YOUR BRAIN, which is covered by The Theme. it's a lockdown, ladies and gentlemen. Sit back and enjoy the theme, and keep your hands inside the head at all times.

unfortunately, the above statement contains an incorrect assumption that persons with a brain actually use them.
