Jason Kottke's Layer 8 Commentary

Hirsute Hills

Another well-hit volley from Draplin takes Potts'ses's hairy legs and turns them into a glorious view of a city in the mountains.

This commentator has been flipping through the layers of this match trying to find a theme (other than pants, of course). I cannot locate one. There's a bit of a back and forth between vector and photorealism going on, but that's more of a sideshow than the main event. I fear that I was too right in my improv assessment from Layer 1's's match involved much technical skill but also not enough "yes, and". I've enjoyed all the individual volleys and thought there was something to each of them in relation to the previous layer, but there doesn't seem to be any larger narrative or theme happening here. I'm hoping that in the last few layers, one will emerge.

Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by Jason Kottke.
