I've got the basics of a routine based upon the surrealist thinking behind the Exquisite Corpse, it's technically fairly easy to do...

just wondering if you guys think it's a worthwhile revelation to have a 4 line poem in a picture frame, facing away on a table throughout - and then ask 4 different people to say a line they've made up, and your 4 line poem matches...

been done to death? I like the overall framing I must admit...

DO IT!!! Because you must! then Submit it to Oracle so we can enjoy it!

Everything has been done to death - but this is the SPOOKY land - death is good - and things rise from the dead - are undead - or reborn in new forms...

there's two methods to do it, dead simple either way...one's a bit more "realistic"...

cheers!

You had me at Surrealist ! Yes Larry would be thrilled to be offered such a gem for the Oracle if you will share it. Everything old is new again eventually.

I like the idea. I was already looking for some good effects to incorporate in a lesson about art history. This could be good.

I would be most interested in seeing what you're up to.

Ringo, I hate to get all parental and all but. . . it's polite to ask permission first. Smile

It sure is. I just thought it was something that would be offered for sale one of these days. You never know ! And even when I buy something I still ask for permission to perform it. So, you're preaching to the choir, oh, Raven ! Smile I try to play nice Smile (but don't get parental on me... Smile

Oh, as a little extra, you could of course, omit the frame, and have a wax-sealed letter, nice aged parchment..the last poem written by a dying surrealist...

see! I think about you charmingly dark bizarrists sometimes!

I've just put out one ebook with a friend, but we are working on a new one soon - pendulums, ink blots, table and glass tilting, all that fun stuff...might put a few different versions of this that you can do with paintings and photos in it...

we'll see!

anyway - thanks for the support guys...

cheers - iain
