Robert Nideffer: Ummm, well I'm not sure I would dare claim it as such, but gee, thanks! The theme of Schleiner's show was the game "hack," "patch," or "crack." In that context the crack became a means to reflect on gaming culture from another angle, and to attempt to contribute to the formation of new configurations of game characters, game space, and gameplay. At the time of the show, the real Tomb Raider (published by Eidos Interactive), and its main heroine Lara Croft, was an extremely popular video game franchise. So popular in fact, it had become the target of one of the most famous underground game patches called "Nude Raider," which stripped the title character of what little clothes she had. I decided I wanted to "patch the patch" for my project. In that interest, Tomb Raider consisted of three-parts: 1) an appropriated website where I repurposed the existing commercial site; 2) a spoofed mail-server that re-routed messages submit to her fan club website to the Director of development at Eidos UK as if it were coming from the Director of Marketing in the US branch; and 3) a patched version of the Nude Raider patch, which placed police blotter style bar codes across Lara's private parts (and gave her a goatee as a Duchampian homage), thwarting the game player's expectation of seeing her polygonal private parts.
I'm Donna & I'm 55 yrs old & I have been dealing with reccuring outbreaks of shingles for the past 12 years or so.... I have it in the same location each time (top of my butt crack) and the breakout is not really all that bad but the pain that is within the nerves and the way I feel (tired, irritable, sad ... and much pain)....nerve pain in my hip and legs.... unreal.. 2b1af7f3a8
