ALL MY 5 R BELONG TO THIS!
I'm making "C" now because of you.
10/10 the animation is so futuristic
the storyline is brillant
i love it
People are definitely reading too far into this.
While this is an incredibly amusing Flash, not just because of the minimalism but because of the fact that it somehow bypassed the blamming process, this is definitely not an artistic movement.
I've seen a lot of people doing this.
I don't think this is what the author intended it to be.
Although it may be; I'm not StrawberryClock, so I wouldn't know.
What B represents is the desire for fame without the effort involved.
Strawberryclock has created something that defies the very laws of the portal; something that despite its lacking nature has become iconic as a symbol, enjoying extraordinary renown. In a way B epitomises the dying creative drive of the internet, the obsession that "Crap is good". Whilst many will strive to replicate B, to create something of unjustified popularity, no-one can hope to match Strawberryclocks anarchic creation.
Where then, does its appeal lie? Why is B revered so? Surely, it is no more than a red B on a white page? Consider for a second that Strawberryclock made B with the intention of showing us something about ourselves. The B is the only object on a fully white canvas, the only object tainting an otherwise unmarred view. The B becomes the focal point, tearing us away from the white surroundings with its slightly off-centre alignment. this shows Strawberryclock not to be a perfectionist: his B does not need to be in the centre of the screen, does not need to dominate the entire view of the canvas. Indeed, it is our own choosing to focus on the letter, when there's an entire canvas to be explored, blank or not.
Secondly, the B is a red, serif letter. The colour red holds obvious denotations such as blood and mortality, whilst the spiky protrusions of its serif nature gives it a majestic, almost demonic look. This dominating letter is the only obscurity in a white expanse, the only object preventing a pure, white existence. This represents the evil in all of us, the problems that stop us being virtuous, faithful entities. Indeed, we all have our own B's preventing us being pure and good.
Thirdly, B's appeal lies in its status and indeed, the fact of its mere existence. Here we observe something that simply shouldn't be, something that should have been voted out of existence soon after its creation. But it didn't, and even B's most harsh critics must admire and respect that immortal tenaciousness.
It is this immortality that is both B's appeal and its scariest feature. Yes, B shall last forever in the expanse of cyberspace, and by watching it and commenting on it we can all share in that immortality, that certainty that B shall last forever in the coding of the internet. However, B's existence is like a stone thrown in a perfectly still lake, and the ripples are still being felt. Still people live off of Strawberryclock, try to leech some of that inexplicable fame. And why? Because B shows us our own mortality. B shall always exist in some form on the internet long after we watching it have died. B has succeeded where we have failed. It shall live forever.
Therefore, perhaps if we could drag the letter B out of the way and see what was behind it, we would see a mass of eager flash animators, anxious to be noticed behind the dominating B.
We are, all of us, living in the shadow of B.
Alright...no offence, but what the hell is this? I'm staring at a letter B for like 2 minutes straight...I don't know about the rest of you, but I found this pretty pointless.
Sorry for this negative, but I did not like this flash at all...I fail to see the interest in the second letter of the English Alphabet...
