Holy burning bandwidth, Batman!

They don't use scaled down versions of the images to display them in their gallery, they just hotlink and let browsers resize the originals which are up to 5MB a piece. And there are 30+ images on each page

So don't be surprised if your browser takes a bit to download the 30-150 MB per gallery page.
/if this were to go to the main page instead of FarkUs, they'll have to cancel next year's contest to pay this year's AmazonAWS bill
 
2013-11-01 10:55:59 PM
Nice! +5
 
2013-11-01 10:58:49 PM
Thanks guys!  I'm really impressed by the other entries, too.  I will step up my game next year. :)

Also, I had a lot of fun with this, I'd recommend it to anyone.
 
2013-11-02 02:13:07 AM
My Webroot didn't like that page at all.
 
2013-11-02 09:49:58 AM
Will vote for BIE.

/just kidding, gave it 5 stars already
//EIP anyway
///you know, so you can express your gratitude
 
2013-11-02 06:19:46 PM
I was gonna vote for it just cause you had the audacity to whore yourself on Fark and had the dumb luck to get it greenlit, but I actually kinda like it, so here's my 5/5 for you.
 
2013-11-02 06:20:40 PM
FIVE :) That was way cool
 
2013-11-02 06:21:38 PM
Done.
Although #201 isn't Dali's Kings.
It's Batman.
 
2013-11-02 06:24:12 PM

tuna fingers: Done.
Although #201 isn't Dali's Kings.

All the mercury in the tuna is farking with your eyesight.
 
2013-11-02 06:30:23 PM
I voted.

I hope you get disqualified for getting so many Fark votes!
 
2013-11-02 06:30:52 PM
5 stars.  It's creepy but I got that fark loyalty thing going on today
 
2013-11-02 06:35:14 PM
It's got a good beat and you can dance to it. I give it an 87.
 
2013-11-02 06:41:29 PM
I have to admit to being lowbrow enough to also like the hens playing poker.
 
2013-11-02 06:41:40 PM
5 from me! Best of luck!

GOOD JOERB, SGD!!
 
2013-11-02 06:51:30 PM
What if the admins trolled OP and altered the headline to pitch a different entry?
 
2013-11-02 06:51:47 PM
"The persistence of eggs" was better
 
2013-11-02 06:51:56 PM
I want to vote but the page keeps crashing my browser. I even tried just pulling up your entry. I'll try on my pc later though.
 
2013-11-02 06:55:20 PM
Some of the others were so bad they almost made me laugh. Almost.
I suppose the same as everyone is a photographer now, everyone is an artist.
Subbette's piece wasn't funny. It was quite good. As a result I stopped laughing and considered voting.
Then I remembered that it doesn't matter who you vote for, the government always gets in.
So I didn't.
 
2013-11-02 06:59:46 PM
5. As a chess fan I enjoyed the piece. Grats, hope you win. :)
 
2013-11-02 07:02:08 PM
Are all these entries a joke or something?
 
2013-11-02 07:02:25 PM
Multiple voters are not permitted to share the same IP address

Good luck, I voted hundreds of times from the same 7 proxies.
 
2013-11-02 07:04:45 PM
Voted. And awesome!

2013-11-02 07:12:04 PM
Gave it an honest 5 because it was the best on that page and the others i looked at.
 
2013-11-02 07:18:27 PM
5 stars, SGD! Great job getting those long legs to stand up.

Dude, Dali is my favourite and I had "Les Elephants" hanging on my wall for years.
Definitely voted you 5 stars just for execution of the elephants. Well done.
Though I do agree with some of the others that some of the other entries on the page look amateur.
 
2013-11-02 07:31:50 PM
if you're going to vote fro someone who bites another artist's work vote for "Calvin and Hobbes rolling in the cypress wheat field"

So homage is now "biting another artist's work"?

5 stars - EIP

just teasing. sorta :)  excellent imagery.  Brought back memories of Key West and seeing Vladimir Kush's work in a local gallery.
 
2013-11-02 08:01:57 PM
Voted. Some other nice stuff on that page as well. bol .
 
2013-11-02 08:07:34 PM
Looks like Star Wars shot in Bolywood. Not being an art critic I would  highly recommend this be auctioned at Christies for an exorbitant sum of money. You may thank me by adding  a photo of yourself ( indecently clad ) to your profile. Another five votes to be added tomorrow after your profile change.
 
2013-11-02 08:10:37 PM
I just love AT-ATs.

sorry, but I prefer TA-TAs
 
2013-11-02 08:16:02 PM
Wanted to vote for Starry Night and American Gothic, as well, but voted 5 for Dali's Kings.

/now to go look at the original pic
 
2013-11-02 08:19:42 PM
5* nice piece

This cracked me up.  Thanks so much everyone!

FTA: Participants were given identical building materials and the challenge of creating a work of art around the theme "Re-Invent a Work of Art" using only the materials provided in their kits. Entries are judged on creative use of the materials, use of the theme, and general craftsmanship and presentation.

Reading is fundamental.
 
2013-11-02 08:47:54 PM
Voted +5.

Good luck!

OK... here's the deal:

When I was in art school, the only recurring element we discussed from Dali were his elephants. Many feminist writers believed that they stood for a domination over the female of the species. A very intelligent (and very pro-feminist) instructor pointed out to me that the spindly legs of the elephants represented the patriarchal, yet unstable tenets of the male-dominated hierarchy.

So... I'm not one of those folks that points out the feminist imagery in everything, but thank you, Mrs. Ellen Diem. You showed me that you could point out those symbologies in art without going on some feminist diatribe. Each sex has its opportunity to show the world how important it is without diminishing the importance of the other.

Sex is a crucial part of our function as humans... if you think that is untrue, you are doing a disservice to those you pursue sexually. Your sexual "conquests" are not truly validated if you do not consider your "conquests" equals.

Long story short.... as an engineer... 5 stars. Artistically and in an engineering context. The skill it took to get the skinny-legged elephants to stand under their own power is impressive.

/I hope this old man was able to impart a lesson on how older people think about the interaction between the sexes.
