Caine's Arcade


Guest A/D

Recommended Posts

 

Basically a 9-year-old kid in LA made a bunch of sweet (ok, they're kind of shit, but kind of amazing) arcade games out of cardboard boxes, some indie filmmaker put it online, and now he gets to go to college. Pretty awesome if you ask me.

 

This ties in to my hope that news media will eventually be forced to give positive events the same coverage as shitty ones.

yeah I saw that. I thought it was some viral michel gondry video at first, then not. It's pretty cool I guess. Seems like a great kid.

Yuck. I came across this video casually a few months ago or maybe last year on VICE tv and it was awkward then but ten times as awkward now that its festering like a viral internet boil. The only thing more awkward than videotaping a kids autistic imaginative adventure with cardboard is flashmobs.

He makes the kind of stuff I made as a kid when friends came round, though the difference being that whereas he has a hip indie short made about him I used to get bollocked and told to "clean up that blaahdy mess"

Right, very few people win this kind of lottery. But I think it's cool that it's somewhat merit-based, unlike the lotteries won by many others

 

Carry on

god damn you people are cynical.

 

i used to make my own tv's out of cardboard boxes, i loved it. yes, all kids do creative stuff like this. the fact that we can all relate to whimsical childhood creativity seems like a good enough reason to celebrate it, no?

It comes down to that everyone in this thread is jealous that this kid got recognition and they didn't.

      could be a song from your childhood; maybe just words and no music or it could be the whole song. it could be from anywhere really. this is a good example:

      So I was going to start a cute animal pictures thread but saw that the "Cute Pictures Thread" already covers that. So I got to thinking and decided to look up "cute gun" on google images. Probably one of the best ideas I have had recently. Behold, cute guns:
       

       

       

       
       
      Please feel free to post more cute guns/weapons pics and expand this thread, this is a fascinating subject.
