Re: Bears Dancing


To me, nothing is more psychodelic than colorful bears dancing.

What? They're dancing bears! Dancing bears and Grateful Dead go hand-in-hand.

I thought dancing bears and grateful dead and psychodelia went hand in hand. I guess the style is not psychodelic enough. Maybe I will resubmit with them wearing 3D glasses and maybe it will fog!

Off topic? Huh? Maybe this derby was a little over the woot judge's heads.

Apparently just using the colors in the rainbow isn't enough.
The theme description said, "Give us your take on the swirling patterns, kaleidoscopic colors, and fractal designs of psychedelic art." Try making each bear out of multiple colors in some kind of psychedelic pattern.

I would like to agree with you. However, by those guidelines, half of the entries would be rejected...but they are not. I just wish I knew why mine was singled out. If each bear was a psychodelic pattern it would be hard to distinguish each individual bear.

I think the woot judges don't understand the subtle Jerry Bear reference. It was wrong to reject it -- I agree.

I wouldn't personally have voted for this one but the woot staff were definitely wrong to reject this as off topic. If it breaks a rule then quote a rule it actually breaks when rejecting it not off-topic since it's as on-topic as any other entry.

I don't get it, I can't think of anything more on topic. Maybe, the woot people are too young to get it?
