So check out these videos of Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West performing for an audience of 50,000 at BBC Radio 1′s massive Hackney Festival in London on Saturday. My husband, Bill Haddad (aka: “Mr. Weenie”), was the Technical Designer on the design/production team for this performance. The festivities continue on Sunday when rapper Tinie Tempah takes the stage.
And here we have the lowest common denominator in the game of Draw Something. Using words as part of the drawing is generally considered cheating—especially when a player actually spells out the word you’re trying to guess. (Yes, that has happened.) However, in the example below, the words weren’t so much about cheating as they were my sophomoric attempt at Beavis & Buttheadian humor.
Patriotic Chicken Nugget
Sometimes I use words I think a specific player might understand and appreciate. For example, Stephen Colbert might enjoy my patriotic reference to Team America. I’d probably be chastised for my poorly illustrated eagle, but he’d appreciate the thought. On the other hand, if I were playing this game with Sarah Palin, I’d have to rethink the entire drawing since she doesn’t seem to have a strong grasp of pop culture, irony or geography. (Along with advanced arrow-drawing skills, a Draw Something expert must have the ability to quickly produce a chicken-shaped representation of the United States.)
Draw Something isn’t for everybody, but as you can see by my example above (along with this one, this one, this one and this one), you don’t have to be an artist to participate. In fact, it’s probably better for your sanity and self esteem if you’re not.
For those of you who don’t get the reference: (NSFW)
I am not insinuating that you are like Sarah Palin. On the contrary; no one is like Sarah Palin.
Be nice. Be respectful. Tolerance for foul language is very high, but don’t
use it against anyone else, or you’ll be bound, gagged and forced to watch Fox News. I reserve the right to delete comments as I see fit because I’m the head boss lady in charge. So there.
