Hi Quinn good luck on this one. It sounds very promising.

I liked the idea brought up here in this thread about printing something around one of the rings. I would write something long the lines:

Ask me to amaze you!! ----- This is impossible

It should go all the way around the card. Any more ideas? I like this idea of the writing.
Yours,

Ivan

Thanks Niva. The booklet contains a section dealing with various options for what can be on the card -- where the text can be placed, and what it might say. Of course I encourage everyone to come up with ideas of their own.
Every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. Unfortunately every problem also contains the seeds of an infinite number of non-solutions, so that first part really isn't super helpful.

In celebration of its release, I'd like to put on a little contest for a free copy of Conjunction. If you're interested, read on...

The video trailer contains an element of subliminal content; something I did purposely to make people think about it longer than they otherwise would (because that's the kind of dastardly, underhanded, evil marketing genius I am). The thing is, I didn't intend for it to be subliminal. Subtle, yes, but not subliminal. However, based on the fact that I expected people here to notice and mention it, and so far no one has; and even friends who I expected to spot it immediately didn't do so until I pointed it out to them, and said they never would have otherwise; based on all that, it would appear that this particular element is, in fact, below the immediate conscious radar. (Of course I'm deliberately ignoring the distinct possibility that everyone apart from my halfwit friends finds it perfectly obvious, but simply not clever enough to warrant comment...)

So here's the object: be the first one to correctly identify the subliminal content I'm talking about, and win a free copy of Conjunction. There is exactly one rule (unless I think up more later): DON'T email or PM me your guesses. Post them here in this thread. I'll be checking back frequently, and will shower the winner with effusive praise for their extreme mental acuity.

Ready... go!

I'm not sure, but I think after the first couple of tears, the video rewinds and then starts over again from the first tear.

Ok, so I bellieve it is so subtle I would be probably guessing. I´ve seen a lot of times and this is what I think.

When you wrote :“That´s what they WANT you to think“ we don´t know who, and WANT in caps makes a suggestion. However, what I noticed the most, and I think it is in fact what you want us to spot, although I don´t understand, is at the end of the video, when your site is announced, the black background starts changing and looks like a bad signal thing. Like The Ring or something like that.

Was I even close?

Quinn,

You show the finished linked pieces upfront before going into any of the tearing.

Quinn,
I have been thinking about it, and the only thing that really comes to mind is a slight discrepancy. This is what I am wondering about . . . it seems the inner frame is almost the exact same size as the outer frame it is conjoined with. Of course; it should be quite a bit smaller (or am I crazy?) from being ripped out of its center.

We all know the CENTER of me should not be as large as the WHOLE of me. Does this have anything to do with it?

Anyhow as I've told you before; tremendous work! You know I'm getting this either way . . . cannot wait!

Peace,
Jerome.

Quinn,

The finished linked pieces are opened/revealed and the writing appears exactly in the same position as when the untorn card is displayed. That could be subliminal but probably just insignificant.

There is an obvious cut in the video half way through the tearing process (as if you switched cards or something)

Still no correct guesses, although the things people are noticing is making for a fascinating study in and of itself. (For example, there is no edit in the tearing process; it's a single, continuous take from start to finish, I promise.) Keep at it...

Is it just that you have very healthy nails? Or are you wearing pink nail polish...to perhaps subliminally send a message..."hey chicks will really enjoy me performing this?" Smile

Shouldn't one of the rings have 4 ripped sides? I may be wrong, but it looks like each ring has a sharp side...

No one's got it yet. Rich, those are my natural healthy nails, thanks for noticing. MagicMan, I'm shipping from New Orleans.
