This January 2nd, I met with Rongo Rongo for an evening of no-holds-barred, nonstop tasking! The genesis of this meeting was when I mentioned in my Confuse A Mineral
praxis that I had wanted to go the MIT Museum. Rongo Rongo figured out that I was in town and invited me to do some tasking with her. And what could I do but accept?
First stop - a Chinese restaurant in central square for dinner. While we waited and then while we ate, we made our Exquisite Corpses. Exquisite Corpse is often done with three people but we only had two, so we divided the pages into fourths and had each of us start a page. We'd each complete a fourth of the pages, leaving a few lines spilling over the border and then passing it across the table to the other. We used paper that I brought and red, blue, and black pens from Rongo Rongo's office.
The waitress who was serving us thought our Exquisite Corpses were very beautiful, although I'm not sure if she entirely understood the process that went into making them. I especially liked the way the the red areas flowed through the first corpse and the FHP Tree that flowed through the first, second, and third parts of the second corpse.
Having been fed and completed our corpses, we headed out to MIT, for more tasking!
I'm always excited when any SF0 players come through Boston, and yesterday JJason had enough interregnum drive to brave the coldest night of the year. We quickly decided that indoor tasking would be a good idea and headed to Mary Chung's for some food and exquisite corpsing, since we qualified as not having previously met. JJason's segments have a pleasing buildings and architecture theme, and I worked in some sea monsters. We both used written words in some segments, though mine were a bit more random.
We got some Insatiability related fortunes after dinner. Mine is a reminder not to let elaborate plans for big tasking get in the way of short sessions of little tasking. JJason's is more of a commentary on his brains, I think. Stay tuned for parts two and three of the evening.
