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 social media via that comps hashtag or via e-mail
to blender at lazarusblocks dot org ... we will strive to be available
over various branches of social media.
2 - at precisely 2:00pm EST, cthulu, the host of this event will explain
how the blender works.
3 - each person will come up with a set of ideas, including one from each 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. the organizers currently are cthulu and warpus. /msg your words to
if you really cant make it to the start of the show, send us words in the
week leading up to the compo and we will file them in advance.
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 - were at liberty to tinker with the conventions multiball play! if it
is calculated to yield more fun per pound.
8 - 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 whos collecting, just to be sure.
9 - winners are picked. the group that the winners are representing receives
points 3 points for 1st place, 2 for 2nd 1 for 3rd, and the winners
is/are placed on the artists of the year list.
10 - the pack is then released so that it can be downloaded by hordes of eager
blendeners, blender supporters, fans, fanatics, dentists, and communists.

the compo, or where to send your entry, visit
