Because I just can’t do anything normal.
Welcome back one and all.
If you haven’t looked around the website in a few days or longer, you will notice some major additions, updates and changes as I add items I have been working on for the last 5 months. Much of this delay was due to the death of my mother last November, which threw everything in my life into a total nightmare.
On an early website for Coral Mallow, I joked to her that we could put in an Easter Egg. What is that, you may ask. Easter Eggs are hidden features in primarily digital media that are meant as something fun to reward fans, and typically they reveal hidden messages or bonus content. Because you have to search for them, the phrase Easter Egg was adopted for this content.
They have been commonplace in video games for decades, and slowly have made their way into DVD and Blu-Ray discs. Google famously has placed numerous Easter Eggs in many of their products, including this pretty awesome one for Dr. Who fans in Google Maps, which can be accessed when doing something fanboy and geeky online (because, you know, that NEVER happens) such as this address: Earls Court Police box.
Easter Eggs are not as common on websites. Because I had to be different, I decided to create a page that can only be linked by finding a hidden link in one of the many images on this site. On the page is a digital, free download of a piece of work I have created and taken out of circulation. Currently, it is a poster called “Blue Leopard”. Yes, it’s a blacklight voter poster. Because reasons.
If you happen to find it this time around, know that I randomly will change its location from time to time. Additionally, unlike many other Easter Eggs, I do plan on changing the free content on that page every few weeks as well. Happy hunting.
Love to you all.
