You're probably not going to do any work today as it is, what with all the visions of sugarplums and such and such. Know what would be a more advantageous use of your time than drafting that missed connection mad lib for the holiday office party, or pretending to get the weather machine online? Writing a song with elephant draw-play, which is the fruit of a collaboration between a local teacher and a second grader. And what a trippy fruit it is.
The gist: move the elephant around the screen by adjusting the speed, angle, and width controls; not only will this produce a cornucopia of colors heretofore glimpsed only by the gods and/or people with access to giant cranes that can dip elephants in Day-Glo paint; it will also change the pitch and tempo of the sounds produced by various movements on the canvas. Needless to say, the music video pretty much creates itself.
It's like you're a DJ with a mouse for a crossfader and a serious case of synesthesia!
• Try to spell the word "pachyderm"
• Reproduce the cover of Yellow Submarine
• Figure out how to play "Mary Had A Little Elephant" (to the tune of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star")
• Administer an epileptic seizure to a friend or colleague
• Reproduce the cover of The White Album
Extra points if you can couple it with a fresh beat from DJ Google Translate.
