Project FreezerCube – Part One

So here’s a little something I like to call, Project FreezerCube.

(aka: Project Oh Please Someone Help Me I’m Losing My Mind)

No seriously, what's wrong with meClick to see the true madness.

I’ve decided my freezer must become a Weighted Companion Cube. Why? What sort of question is Why? Because it’s white, almost cuboid, and I murdered my last one.

It begins with an ordinary freezer.

How could anyone leave it looking like that?

Too ordinary. And a slightly less than ordinary trip to the art supply shop for some acrylic paints.

Then tonight, friends departed and the new episode of Dexter watched, there I was making a quick sketch of a Weighted Companion Cube.

Surprisingly hard to draw

There was really no pause between this, and pulling the freezer out and drawing all over it with a pencil.

Pencil on freezer works nicely - take note toddlers

The paint doesn’t sit as easily on the surface as the lady in the art shop promised me it would. It’s going to take a couple of coats. And so this is as far as I reached this evening, constrained by ludicrous requirements like working during the day. However, I shall return to it very soon.

Here’s the current state.

Still coats to be added

    And yea, you need help.

    Well. Look who can draw, all of a sudden.

    All of a sudden I thought Brian’s Guide was really good.

    There should be a question mark between ‘All of a sudden’ and ‘I thought’. Rather like:

    All of a sudden? I thought Brian’s Guide was really good.

    Fine.

    Well. Look who can draw.

    John’s Weighted Companion Cube is, in fact, not alive, and will not try to stab you. It will however, attempt to serve you a lovely piece of chilled cake. And cream.

    What about beer?

    Prediction: by the time more (Valve-official) Portal content comes out, “Weighted Companion Cube” will become the most popular category on RPS.

    Yeah, laugh now, but just wait….

    Moreso than Peggle? Who’d have thunk it!

    Did you know RPS is the SECOND RESULT for a google search for Weighted Companion Cube?!

    Awesome project John!

  11. Jonty says:

    Damn it, you stole my idea. What am I going to do with the washing machine now?

  12. Man Raised By Puffins says:

    “Did you know RPS is the SECOND RESULT for a google search for Weighted Companion Cube?!”

    That’s disappointing, it used to be number one. Somewhat disturbingly, RPS is /still/ the number one result for ‘Weighted Companion Cube slash fiction’.

    The project is looking good so far. Are you going the whole hog and adding bits of foam/polystyrene for the corner/edge bits or leaving it as just painted on?

  13. Evo says:

    Hmm a contest between Peggle and the Weighted Companion Cube on RPS?

  14. FaceOmeter says:

    This is getting serious

  15. phuzz says:

    hmm, flatmate away, washing machine broken, some free time… I think I’ve stolen an idea!

  16. The_B says:

    “Hmm a contest between Peggle and the Weighted Companion Cube on RPS?”

    I fear the next logical progression is for someone to take a white laptop that can run Peggle, and then mod it to look like WCC. We would all become mindless, cake-loving-extreme-fever zombies.

  17. Evo says:

    I am using my laptop right now with paper and printers in easy reach……must not do it!

  18. Adam Hepton says:

    Surely the next logical thing is to start weighing everything in WCCs, like file sizes are now universally measured in Peggles.

  19. Evo says:

    Or have them both as a form of measurement!

    e.g.
    1 WCC = 10 Peggles

    I declare myself, a genius!

  20. Alexander says:

    Is your freezer talking yet?

  21. Monkfish says:

    What happens when the weighted companion freezer breaks? Have you decided how you should explain the decoration to Mr. FixYourFreezer?

  22. john says:

    i think “because i can” is a perfectly good reason.

  23. Adam Hepton says:

    When it breaks, you incinerate it. It’s the only course of action.

  24. Adam Henson says:

    Found it via google, awesome idea! Dripping with irony.

    Lh’owon says:
    Nice name, Vid Boi ;)

    Adam Hepton says:
    You too!

    I love this so much I want to die a little.
