For this second assignment there were three objectives.
1. Get in a playful mood.
2. Create a mind map with the theme: Winter.
3. Come up with 10 silly ideas related to winter.
I played Taboo and a couple other similar games last weekend at a party for the first time, which I find to be a funny coincidence. To get in the right mindset when working on the assignment, thinking of all the improv from last week, what better to do than watch a few episodes of "Whose line is it anyway?". I watched the most recent season and was slightly caught off guard when I saw Drew Carey wasn't the host anymore. I enjoyed the episodes nevertheless, those guys never seize to amuse me :)
I created the following mind map. My initial sub-categories may have been a bit too broad, so I narrowed it down a bit more. I would be interested in diving further into snowboarding, snowball fights, and ski-clothing for future work.
Even though I already had a few ideas before really diving into this part, "Whose line is it anyway?" and a good steak with a bit of red wine really got me in the right mood to tackle this. Coming up with silly ideas also proved to be much more fun than I dared to anticipate. I was laughing pretty hard imagining some of those ideas of mine. I only hope that some of my drawings will convey the witty images I had in my head at the time and will make you giggle as well! (or perhaps it was all in the heat of the moment and my ideas aren't funny at all)
Idea 4: Helmet slipovers
Slide a figure of your choosing (a polar bear for example) onto your helmet to look awesome! A variety of choosing from the animal kingdom and mythical monsters such as the Abominable Snowman.
Idea 6: Snowball roulette
Want to spice up your traditional snow balling? Then the snowball roulette is just the thing for you! Load one or more of the chambers with snow, the wheel, and pull the trigger. Playing this game with other people is advised.
Idea 8: Snow distributing airplanes
Are you tired of living in a country where expectations are to have snow during Christmas, but remarkably often that's the exact time when there is no snow at all? (I know I am, Iceland is a deceptive name). Snow distributing airplanes will fix that issue in a jiffy!
Idea 9: Snow guns blowing colored snow
Even though skiing trips are a blast, to make them ever so slightly more entertaining, snow guns with colored snow will paint the slopes in all the colors of the rainbow (or at least some). Enjoy riding down the hills in a more colorful environment!
Idea 10: Singing gingerbread cookies
The last idea I'm posting on the blog (but not the least for sure) are the singing gingerbread cookies. Each cookie plays a Christmas song until you eat it. Everybody wins, enjoy the Christmas song until you get tired of it, at which time you're forced to eat a delicious cookie :)
