Your Weekly Guide to VRV: 3/5 – 3/11

It’s a work day and you have just finished your coffee when you get a call on your cell phone. You scan the phone number but don’t recognize it and end the call. A few hours later, after lunch, you check your email. There is a new message labeled “iMpOrTaNt.” You figure it’s spam, but as you’re about to delete it you get a call from the mysterious number again. You end the call and glance at your inbox and see five more emails each with the same subject line as the one before. Your heart rate quickens. You leave for home, the entire commute your phone rings. You turn it off. It still rings. You get to your apartment and check your mail. There is a letter labeled “iMpOrTaNt.” Hands shaking, you open the envelope and find a sheet of paper labeled “Your Weekly Guide to VRV.”

Your Weekly Guide to VRV 2/19 – 2/25

You’re waiting for the walk signal at a crowded city intersection. Your breath forms into temporary clouds before dissolving into the clear, frigid air. You hear a tinny, artificial tone and look up to see the sign has changed to ‘walk.’ You look down at your phone as you’re walking, weaving in and out of the vast surge of pedestrians ebbing and flowing like a living river. Halfway across the street everything falls silent. You crash into the person in front of you and look up, dazed, frantically apologizing. “I’m sorry, uh-” You stop midway through your sentence. The entire world is frozen. People, feet extended half-gait; birds suspended in flight; the ripples of a puddle caught in some strange temporal stillness–time has stopped. You stand there, for how long you don’t know, not even trying to make sense of anything, but simply taking in the reality of it all. You get up and begin to walk, haltingly, through the street. You see a child on the sidewalk, his rubber ball trapped halfway between his open hand and the floor. You reach for it, grab it, attempt to move it, but it is immobile as a building. You explore the city this way, experimenting here and there as you did with the ball, but everything is similarly stuck. After hours (days?), you collapse on a park bench. Looking at the morning sun (it’s been morning for so long) winding through the tree branches overhead, your phone suddenly vibrates. Shocked out of your reverie it takes a moment for you to even remember what to do in this situation. You grasp your phone and see that an unfamiliar app has opened, something called… “Your Weekly Guide to VRV.”

Flash Animation is Good Actually

Hi, my name is Mel and I run VRV social. I’m here to tell you that flash animation is Good, actually. If you’re like me and the many others who grew up with the internet, I know that when you hear the words “Adobe Flash,” you immediately think of hours of amateur animation on Newgrounds.
