Blocktronics WTF4: Art Release Information S, estamos de vuelta, chicos! and we hope some chicas too. The other day we were just talking, like... What about we release a new artpack? So we were, like, OK.... but we were, like, but what else can we do? So we were, like, new ANSi megajoint? ENZO Like, 4,635 lines? So we were, like, no, like, we must make it 4,636, and we were, like, ALRIGHT!
So we quit our jobs, got dirvoced and gave up our lives for 45 days without sleeping, eating and visiting porn sites well, thats not true...we actually kept visiting porn sites.
The thing is...., like, 24 artists from 10 countries worked on it...
...and you know what? It was actually better than sex and when
we finished it we were, like, 24 artists dancing naked
simultaneously in 10 different countries.
Our neighbors were, like, Whaaaat the fuuuuuck?.
So we, like, lets call it BLOCKTRONICS WTF4 ANSi MEGAJOINT,
and submit it to the ANSi competition at EVOKE 2014, in Cologne,
Germany...and WE WON! WHOOOOOOOOOOTFFF444444!
The aftermath: 16 of the artists were arrested,
14 returned to live with their parents,
12 moved to Colombia Colombia, not Columbia,
10 were hired by Google and fired 5 minutes later,
9 succesfully robbed a bank in Pennsylvania,
7 became astronauts, 5 won in the lottery and later bought Norway,
3 raped a hamster named Kuko in 3 consecutive days in a
Pet Shop in Califnornia, 2 of them masturbate together on
Skype 15 times watching Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball video
we are not revealing their names, just their initials:
A.A.R.O.N. F.R.I.C.K. and I.V.A.N. S.E.G.A.R.I.C.
and 1 couldnt do the math.
Weve managed to create the worlds biggest ANSi and
and destroy our lives at the same time....fucking EPIC, amigo. Whats next? We cant tell right now, because its secret,
but it includes the wrestling cats, novel writing an friends
that fake Tourretes syndrome to be cooler.
Random comments on Facebook by Blocktronics Mariachis
I was told the megajoint was a project to raise
funds to locate a missing trophy.
actually.. that looks like fist the trophy
at a glance. Nevermind.
So.. whos fisting the trophy right now,
and where?
I have it.
I have asked where it should go a couple times.
Da fuq did I just read?
Enzo I have a profound love for you.
Not in the We-Are-The-World-And-Live-As-One-Way,
but in a deeper, more sexual way.
The key word here is deep.
I would like to own this Fist Trophy you guys
are talking about.
I want to referee the wrestling cats.
Im qualified.
Attention to area: My Balls
Is it really going to Radman ?
Cuz I need to go by His place to take a
picture of it

How to join Blocktronics.

amount of scene and art related activity posted on a regular basis.
They also discuss other interesting topics such as koala bears and twerking. The only two requirements of membership are an interest in low resolution art and dont be a shitty person.
