What can you do in twenty-four hours? You could make some art. Scott McCloud, the 'Understanding Comics
' guy, had this notion about creating a comic in 24 hours
. It caught on
Or go for a bike ride. Granny Gear Productions
puts on 24-hour mountain bike relay races. Bike ride too grueling? How about the famed Le Mans
auto race? Or, hell, how about playing NES
Or make a bunch of Flash shorts
, like this guy
Or watch television, as with the author of this blog
, an experiment in 24 hours of MTV viewing. But why limit yourself to watching? If you're Courtney Love, you can actually host MTV2
for 24 hours, which is more than they ever gave Weird Al Yankovic. Don't like teevee? How about movies
Let me put it another way: if you had to do something for twenty-four straight hours, what would it be?
And here are essays on freedom
from the '24 Hours of Democracy' project. And here's the site for 24 Hour Party People
, about Madchester, Factory Records, etc.
There are no doubt other things you could do for twenty-four hours. Why, I've been 'revising' this post for four days.
