Something For the Weekend

We don't like to leave you without so here's a special post for the long weekend .

We are well cultured here at A+. Art....Literature....we've got it all going on in the DisTIL team. Don't believe me? Continue, if you will, and see if you are justified in your suspicions.

Example 1
Consequences - Fine Art.
  • Take a piece of paper and fold it. The first person draws a picture and trails enough of a line over the fold to enable the following person to continue the masterpiece.
  • Pass around whole group until everyone has contributed.
  • Voila! You have a piece ready to display alongside the likes of the Monet, Van Gogh or that elephant with a brush.

Example 2
Consequences - Literature.
  • Take a piece of paper and fold it. The first person begins a story and continues enough of it over the fold to enable the following person to continue the masterpiece.
  • Pass around whole group until everyone has contributed.
  • Voila! You have a piece ready to publish alongside the likes of the Shakespeare, JK Rowling or those monkeys with typewriters.
Here is this great contribution to British writing in full for your enjoyment:

Once upon a time, in a land far away, Billy the polka-dot dinosaur was hopping up and down. Why he was, nobody knew. Florence his friend the tree nymph was watching curiously, whilst paddling his canoe.
Suddenly out of nowhere
a big dragon appeared out of the big house in the black forest where we were told not to enter at any time but I thought that the stories weren't true so I thought I should discover if they were true or not. So here I was staring down a huge dragon and with nothing but my bush-knife. I thought 'I'm done for' so I was crying out at the
top of my voice "Heellpp!"
JL switched on the emotive music and started a slo-mo run in our direction, a look of
grim determination on his face
defined him as a person. No amount of mosquito bites, insect stings or flesh wounds were going to stop him from seeing his wife again. It had been 8 weeks since Janet was in his arms and such a long, exposed and isolated jungle experience generated a lust for companionship like no other. Before long
he had acquired a pet monkey,
named Habakkuk. Habbakuk decided that it was time.
Time to go. Go far away.
As he left town he reflected on the past 3 months. He had enjoyed himself, but there comes a time when every monkey needs to learn to move on.

Have a great weekend. See you Monday.
