Jim Coudal's Layer 2 Commentary


I’m not sure why when I think about evolution, I think about frogs. But I do.

Maybe it's because frogs represent a bridge between things that live in water and things that live on land. Pollywogs and all that. Anyhow we've evolved in some way here too. Or maybe devolved. Shaun has taken Scott's musical synth cue and take it down to an 8-bit thing and he's done a very similar transformation to the frog visual. Reduced it to its most elemental pixely shape.

To me the F R G B reference suggests the same sort of reductive thing. Because as savvy designers we all know everything on our screens is made up of tiny little sqaures of Frog Red Green and Blue. An excellent volley leaving a match looking for a story and a fly to eat.

Assuming Hansen is portraying wildlife from his native California I'd say that's Northern Leopard Frog or Rana Pipiens, Shaun's would have to be Rana Intellevisionus.

Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by Jim Coudal.
