Mmmff Activities Workshop 2006

Thanks to your intellectual charity, the Mmmff Activities Workshop has been a success in its inaugural year. See here the result of community in action: twenty-three documented Activities that you and yours can complete in five seconds, sometimes fewer.

I tried to use ideas from as many contributors as I could. I may have overlooked some here, ran out of time there, but all donated ideas have been fully appreciated. If this post leaves you thirsty for more Activities, please do look back through the comments for the call for entries.
Featured in this year's Activities Workshop video (in order of appearance):

Extra big thanks to 1970s legendary garage punkers MC5 for letting me record their song "Kick Out The Jams" off of my roommate's stereo with my cell phone for the video's soundtrack.

Mario 3 Modules

These here are two modules I made with help from my roommate's Nintendo. Thanks to webgenius Matt, you can get both of them playing at once simply by clicking the above image. One'll pop up on top of the other, but y'know, move 'em and stuff. If for some reason you have problems with this, you can click on the two links below, and try to synch them yourself.

These were designed with the pictured arrangement in mind, but feel free to mess around with them: Reverse their left-right orientation! Make them diagonal to each other! Place them on opposite sides of the screen! Put them anywhere you want! Holy shit! YOU call the shots! Choose-Your-Own-Aesthetic! Sort of! But yeah, I'm still amassing ideas for the Activities Workshop 2006; hopefully that'll be ready for next week.

Mmmff Activities Workshop 2006: Call for entries

With our free time suffering from the constraints of Modernity, how will we find time for Activities? You can make a difference.

Cell Phone's First Steps

Retroactive cell phone video teaser; a few of the first clips I took while my newly acquired cell phone was still hot in my hand. In maybe chronological order.

Hanging Around

or, "From the Land of Sky Blue Waters pt. 2." My first video project using my cell phone, done for guided vlog post assignment #3, exploration of a space. Better without the sound.
