Curlicued

Friday, May 15, 2009

Whenever I open my blog, that big round thing up there never fails to catch my attention. It looks like an eyeball, doesn’t it? A sleepy yet ever watchful Sauron, that’s what it reminds me of. Or can it be Big Brother? Or the invisible omniscience that holds supreme in the Panopticon? Or a one-eyed being from outer space? And the pink circles, don’t they look like fish eggs clinging to a stick? The small arrow in the footer area, why does it point down?

All these curlicues and geometric shapes, they must mean something. Or do they? Does everything have to have meaning? Or perhaps, like Rorschach inkblots, it’s not what is there but how it appears to us and why it appears to us that way.

My mind must be as curlicued as this template’s design to be thinking about all these things.

It looks like a Patapon (PSP game) soldier. :)

Maybe they all represent something. a reality? a desire? chaos? order? or maybe, they're like those inkblots. :)

order and chaos. that's a nice way of looking at it.

desire? hmmm.. they must be phallic or fertility symbols? LOL

nakakahiyang aminin but i've never played any PSP game. what is a Patapon soldier? bida ba sya o kontrabida, o in between? :)

ang liwanag sa mata! :)

Jac, you sound just like D. He's been complaining and complaining that my blog is hurting his eyes. He told me not to use a dark template anymore.

for mordsith, it's a patapon soldier. and you, cali shandy.. what great interpretations! nakakaaliw. :)

Kayni said...

i'd say the eye is "sauron"...lol. are you wearing the "one ring"? just kidding. i like the new template.

Amelia said...

geometrical representation of something. this is a nice choice ;)

Agnes said...

I love your new template, Angeli :-)))

Angeli said...

Kayni, I wouldn't go near that ring. yikes. :) Last weekend, my younger brother and sister and I watched the Lord of the Rings Trilogy nonstop! and it was the Director's cut, too. sobrang haba but it was fun. hahaha

Thanks, everyone. :)
