Fish on a Bike
Where Next for FOAB?
I don't mean to be flippant or cryptic above.
Once Upon a Time
My original intention for this site was simply to make it a glorified Home Page / Portfolio / Scrap-book thingy, contents being:
What Happened Next
Basically, as I've been working on it, Fish on a Bike has taken on a bit of a life of its own (cue sound of Vincent Price laughing as the Pendulum descends).
Don't get me wrong - I still intend to meet at least some of the original objectives as outlined above, but there's more to it. In particular I feel honour-bound to make the core purpose of the site relate more to its name. The logo really fits the bill (actually so does the sculpture and the Guinness FOBs), because the fish appear pretty amazingly well adapted to being out of their element.
And there's the rub.
I'm sure there are countless other similar examples.
And lo! A strange creature, part animal and part machine, emerged from the mist...
I'd like this site to be a celebration of those who, like a Fish on a Bike, have gone off and done their own thing, and thus challenged their definition and what was assumed to be their limits (and indeed our own).
I'd like this site to celebrate the whimsical and the eccentric, the individualistic and the creative. On the other hand, success is overrated. Let's also celebrate the heroic failures, the dramatic cock-ups and the white elephants. See the official Darwin Awards site as an extreme (and funny) example of what I'm looking for.
Note the rose-tinted swimming goggles - this vision has been around since April 2001!
Over to You!
- Because I can't do this totally on my own, and anyway, where's the fun in that?
Not to mention that this site is far more likely to be interesting (and far less likely to have an audience of one) if as many of you kind readers are involved as possible.
So get thee to the Letter Box at the top of the page and let me know what you think should be done with Fish on a Bike. I can probably handle being told what you think of the show so far, too (as long as it's flattering).
Watch this space!
I mean come back later and watch this space.
