Nintendo creates better humans than the real thing?
In Japan, apprently so in Kanagawa. Nintendo means so much to culture it creates it. Its content is more relevant to everyone than on a recognition level than they might be. Kinda scary but thats what can happen when media brands are a lifestyle.

So everywhere i go i hear about the social virtues of media and how cool it is to do viral work. Personally i hate the term viral. Its beyond contrived, its just a bad misnomer. Its not some replication bit we cant control, its something humans pass onto each other. Sort like being social....Humans are social, media isnt.
Lesson done. I saw this funny social experiment on Buzzfeed. It states a rather humorous and interesting method to create a new band name and create an album cover.
Go to “Wikipedia.” Hit “random” and the first article you get is the name of your band. Then go to “Random Quotations” and the last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album. Then, go to Flickr and click on “Explore the Last Seven Days” and the third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
Gwyther Irwin was my name, pretty badass no doubt. Ive always had a thing for the origin of band names, and while this takes the symbolics out of it, it adds some much needed hilarity.
