Berry’s Movie Poster Challenge – PAWS

“We’re gonna need a bigger mouse trap.” ~ Anon.

I am not much of a joiner. It’s not that I think I’m too cool for the crowd — I’m just bad at it. I’m either too sarcastic or too lazy or just not into the things others seem to be into. I’m also not a share type. And most challenges/memes that float around the SL blogs seem to center on the “share about yourself” variety…which…ewwws me out. So, when Strawberry Singh started her Memes / Challenges a while back, I thought the concept was clever, but never really felt the urge to participate in any of them.

Back when the grid used to go down once a week for maintenance, those handful of us that blogged realized it was a perfect day to invite discussion and give readers something to do. These “Grid Down” days where when we asked readers to weigh in and rabble rabble rabble (although the rabble rabble rabble back then was gentle compared to the plurk wars of today). They were always the most popular entries because people, by and large, love to give their own opinions.

Any good blog or outlet will employ the use of this sparingly. Berry does it on a weekly basis in a fairly structured schedule so readers know what to expect. I think that’s clever for her response numbers as well as a good way of keeping her quality content away from the gimmick. I get weary of the way many lazy bloggers end entries with “tell me what you think” after a brief paragraph of introduced controversy while keeping their own opinions half-shielded.

All that said, I couldn’t resist participating in this week’s Berry blog challenge which involved taking inspiration from a movie poster. To me, the ultimate iconic movie poster is JAWS and, since I’ve been loving my Sugar Glider avatar from Wilds of Organica (Arcade Gatcha item, I know, I hate them, too) this was a no-brainer.

    I wonder how the theme to Jaws would sound if it had been a sugar glider and not a shark?

    This is so well done! Jaws is a movie that I remember having nightmares about when I saw it as a child and I believe you have probably managed to reverse that with this cuteness, lol, so thank you! Also thank you for participating. I’m happy to see that I got you intrigued enough to join us this time, will see if I can manage it again in the future.
