Why is there a dude breakdancing in the bottom right corner?

I'm still wondering why someone went to a lot of trouble to photoshop in that white van.

Maybe the kids are in a break crew.

And someone watching who looks like they have an oxygen tank on their back.

Not to mention the older woman in pink who is either doing leg squats or desperately constipated.

This is why I love renderings. Recently saw one for a new Miami science museum that featured a businesswoman strolling purposefully through a reflecting pool.

Snipers on the elevated walkways too.

People--you're missing the FERN-covered tree right in the middle.

Is that the Michelin Man on the one walkway?

Note how some (like squatting woman and oxygen tank lady) cast shadows, while others don't. Clearly, those are the walking (or breakdancing) dead.

What exactly are they all walking on? A cement/grass lattice walkway??

Hard and crunchey on the outside, soft and chewey in the middle.

Is the van parked or is the breakdancer balancing it on his foot mid-windmill?

best thread in a long time

BTW i think that girl in the right hand corner may be applying the world's largest Mitchum deodorant stick?

Based on the evidence, I have ascertained that M.C. Escher's architect did some of the topographical detail here.

Well played, "Mr. Impossible Angles."

I thought she was doing the Pete Townsend 'windmill' but considering the oxygen tank woman (presumably with gas mask) I'm going with extreme body odor as more likely.

Good catch!

Agreed. Does anyone even play that anymore? Or that whole Second Life malarkey? Methinks they went the way of MySpace.

my parents brought a friend of theirs to thanksgiving this year. he plays "shows" in "cafes" in second life. apparently people will actually pay fake money to watch a video stream of him playing guitar in his kitchen. he then auctions off the fake money on ebay for real money. he says he can make $10 a show, sometimes.

DUDE. Dolls scare the crap out of me. I think Kat's avatar is the one @ plume. I have to be very careful not to look at it when I'm there.

The last time I played the Sims (this was at LEAST five years ago, so lay off me) I grew bored and put them all in the pool. Then I removed the ladder and waited for them to yell frantically for help before finally succumbing.

Look, if they're too stupid and/or weak to figure out how to get out of a FULL pool without a ladder then I'm not going to lament their demise.

I have heard of people who make/made a killing selling real estate in Second Life.
I can't even manage First Life.

actually, that's a good point. maybe it's just hiding behind the tree.

Really bad rendering, they took the time to airbrush a van, get a kid to breakdance, put a constipated woman on the lattice/grass walk area, put in a female with a breathing problem and put in snipers on the el but forgot to clean up the buildings! They didn't even put up new windows on it.

Are they trying to sell real estate or what?

BTW, that grass isn't going to hold up so well if the van keeps driving over it.

I was waiting for someone to comment on my avatar! Austen I was facing my fears at Plume a few weeks back. I hate hate hate dolls. In fact my cousin who is a writer out in LA makes horror films/screenplays now and again. A few years back he made this really creepy film (it was great when he wrote it then the directors killed it and it went straight to DVD). Worst acting ever. Should have been on MST3000. It was called Asylum or The Asylum (the one NOT in theatres) Anyway, he actually put a scene in there with a bunch of dolls just to freak me out. He sent me the film and he told me that I only had to watch it up to that scene...lol
