It was fair. Nothing amazing.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very Symbolic

Elephant tusk- Nature and natural man being destroyed in order to create more people Elephant Logo- Corporate system/status quo, ironic because it is destroying the tusk, a representation of itself Slide- Fallopian tube, also initiation into society Yellow liquid flowing to balls- Sperm going to ova, also society beginning to mark people into its system Billiards- People, all essentially the same but separated into different groups at the whims of society Billiard boxes- Social, economic and ethnic classes Marks- Designations for purpose in life Truck going to factory- People being shipped off to society and also to be inspected for any dissent Biohazard sign- Danger of surveillance, monitoring, and artifical societal constraints Inspecting robots- "Big Brother" surveillance Billiard balls- They are released in order of importance. The first are angels or other celestial being, very greatly revered. The second are house pets. The third are worms; they are mostly left to themselves and help humans in agriculture. The fourth are livestock animals, cows etc. They are sometimes kept as pets, but are more often kept as food to be grown. The next are fish; occassionally they are kept as pets, but most often are hunted. The next are bees, sometimes livestock, but are also exterminated. The next, squid, are entirely hunted. The last are rats, always exterminated. The last eight ball is a human trying to evade the class structure; thus it must be destroyed. The stripes are society and machinery, non-natural, mundane human constructs, esp. military, trying to suppress the other eight. The solids are man's natural side and nature trying to help him break free of the constraints of man's constructions.

That was pretty f*cked up.

Great animation, though. It's probably symbolic or something, but I never pick up on symbolic stuff.
