Rasterbator

 
I know polite girls don't talk about these things, but I just spent all afternoon Rasterbating, and MAN I can't wait to show this neat new trick to Davin when he gets home!

I know it sounds dirty, but really it's just a program that takes any image and blows it up as large as 20 meters (that's over 65 feet for us stupid Americans) and formats it so you can print it for yourself. To get an idea of how people Rasterbate in their own homes, check out their gallery.

I made a photo of my lovely Dementor girls from a Harry Potter party earlier this year:
R-Dementors 2
It took 16 sheets of paper, but I think it turned out well. Since it's made of a bunch of dots, it looks better from farther away. Up close it's hard to make out:

But, really Seurat CHOSE to paint this way, and his stuff hangs in galleries all over the world.

My verdict? This is very cool! It can be a little tough on your ink cartridges, but art is pain, baby. And a word of caution, after staring at all of the little dots while piecing this together and inhaling the rubber cement the whole time, I do think that if you rasterbate too much you could definitely go blind...

Is there NO safe pasttime anymore?
 
Now that is too cool...note to self: begin rasterbating ASAP
 
Oh that's neat.
 
Very, very cool program. Thanks for telling us about it. I see some fun christmas gifts makings in the future!
 
I rasterbate all the time...uh nevermind...too much info :-) Anyway, thanks for visiting my strange world on the web! Do you need a bunch of us to send you money for more ink cartridges? Come back and say hello anytime!
 
Thats so funny...
 
That looks so cool! I want to be a rasterbator!
 
Wow I have an empty spot on a wall just begging to be rasterbated. Thanks!
