Re: Indiana


Someone went and flew across Indiana. These are the motion lines they left during their adventures.

The joke, while it may not be obvious or funny, is that I am using the red lines as they used in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark that showed his travel from one location to the next to show a trip across the state of Indiana.

This isn't meant to sound rude, but every post you have has your name to the left, an image with your name in the "signature", and yet you still sign your posts as Andy. What gives?

I think I might be dense..

Raiders of the Lost Ark happened in Indiana? Where did the Germans come from?

OK. From that idiotic question, I think I get it. It didnt happen in Indiana. But the red lines would be from the movie... and Indiana = Indiana Jones.

Or Im stupid. Im cool with stupid.

Yeah, the idea started as making counterfeit Indiana Jones merch about either Raiders or new movie coming next month, but I've done enough bad things in my life I thought that one might tip the scales. So, I settled for a poorly done parody.

I guess to annoy you! That didn't sound rude did it?
By the way, why do you always use that Joel image for your comps. Kind of repetitive eh?

I'm glad I'm not the only snark that thinks about those things. Every time I see it, the flashing "duh" sign goes off in my head.

Nah, it doesn't annoy me. Just a curiosity. Yeah, I'm tired of that particular model as well. I actually do try to use different models, I think more then most, but for some reason I just can't get this guy out of my head.

I am O.K. with the Joel pic. I was just giving you a hard time.

Yeah, but I really am kinda embarrassed to use him for 4 derbies in a row. By the way, this might be the highest comment-to-vote ratio ever, by this point.

Re: Indiana


I adore the concept, but even a huge Indy fan as myself had to take a moment to see what you were doing. It's clever, and I can see where you're coming from, but it just seems to take away being in such a small space. Also, am I crazy, or wasn't there like, a plane or something that trailed the line? It might have been in the video games. llo

In the movie, they had the video of the plane with a translucent map over it so you saw both. This one really was supposed to have a plane in it, but other things got in my way (sleep & laziness, primarily). I knew this version would be a stretch for people to get, but felt like entering it anyways. Thanks for the comment.
