in the tradition of the very successful joint and swaptM irc activities,
comes a third, ultimate idea. yes, if you can read ?! youve guessed by now
THE BLENDER!!!!!!!!!
p r o c e d u r e s
quickly! before time runs out, this how a blendertM event will be run:
1 - everyone will gather in blender on EFnet
if blender is not cooperating, try mist.
In a pinch, interact on Twitter through the blender hashtag or via e-mail
to cthulu at tabnet dot ca
2 - at precisely 7:30pm EST, cthulu, the host of this event will explain
how the blender works.
3 - each person will come up with ONE idea. it can be in one of three
categories: a subject i.e. a horse, an activity i.e. fishing, and
a location i.e. the White House.
4 - everyone will submit their idea to the organizer, who will make a
list. this organizer currently is cthulu. /msg your words to him.
writing down of the words might take up to 5 minutes, so please be patient.
5 - the organizer will pick THREE of the ideas one subject, one activity, and
one location. these three ideas will be announced, and put in the channel
topic. note: selection is not random at all historically, ideas had to
be rigorously curated to yield useful results.
6 - your mission is to create a masterpiece about the three picked ideas.
your masterpiece may be pretty much anything. ansi/ascii/music/lit/vga/etc.
everything is allowed.
7 - the funpo ends at 9:30pm EST, and thats when all the work is collected.
cthulu usually collects all of it, unless his dcc fucks up which happens
almost as much as it happened to warpus : you *may* submit early if you
wish. check the topic line to see who is collecting, just to be sure.
8 - a winner is picked, but that is usually not announced that night. the
group that the winner is representing receives a point, and the winners
is/are placed on the artists of the week list.
9 - the pack is then released so that it can be downloaded by hordes of eager
blendeners, blender supporters, fans, fanatics, dentists, and communists.

hopefully you get an idea of the fun involved here. but along with that,
blendertM has numerous advantages over the other irc events.
INFINITE PLAYERS - yes, this means never having to turn eager blendeners away.
PREFAB INSPIRATION - for those of you that cant think of anything to draw,
here other people will do most of the work for you!
ORIGINALITY - finally something other to draw than The Maxx just imagine a
pack with 20 different interpretations of a horse fishing!!
NO QUALITY CONTROL - it doesnt matter how well you do, how silly or serious
you are, because you wont be messing up anyones work
except your own
EASY TO RUN - no messy file exchanges + no hard-to-enforce rules a smooth-
running operation with no annoying delays.
COOL ORGANIZERS - yes, finally a compo that is ran by really cool people. :
w h o s b e h i n d w h a t ? ! ?
people seem to be confused as to who does what during these blenders. well...
cthulu - runs blender, does all the stuff that warpus used to do 8
warpus - ran blender, wrote nfo files, released packs, judged.
hennifer - invented the blender.
velkro - hosted the ftp and web sites.
poison - main coder.
we also had couriers spreading the packs all over the planet. consult
blender.sup.ans to find out who they were.
