DOLPHIN ISLAND SUPER QUEST – SNCKPCK by Daniel Alexander
Island Super Quest’ he explores the lives of anthropomorphic dolphins. Life as
a dolphin can be incredibly easy. Intelligence allows the dolphin to
successfully navigate across vast quantities of water. They communicate with
strange pitched noises attempting to bring attention to one another.
Fortunately humanity realizes the importance of the dolphin. Long ago the USSR
attempted to raise an army of dolphins in the Black Sea. Unfortunately for the
USSR dolphins were not into the whole communist totalitarian regime thing.
Politically unaffiliated dolphins swim free being the ocean’s kittens. Cute
songs have been written about dolphins in the past and thankfully that
tradition continues with Daniel Alexander’s ‘Dolphin Island Super Quest’ song.
actual ‘Super Quest’ Daniel Alexander refers to is a mystery. Akin to the
ending of ‘Broken Flowers’ Daniel Alexander posits an important question: If
you were a dolphin how would you have fun? Joyful pixelated music accompanies
his voice. The music sounds similar to Philip Glass if Philip Glass ever got
into chiptune and a bad Pixie stick habit. Here Daniel Alexander exclaims that
the backflips in the water are more than regular backflips they are ‘super fun
backflips’. Little empirical evidence is given to suggest that they are the
most fun backflips, only super fun. Indeed the very usage of the word ‘super’
implies that there is a purpose behind all of this dolphin activity. Does
Daniel Alexander hope to change the lives of everyone he meets via the internet
through the power of this song? Does this song transform listeners into
dolphins for brief periods of time?
centuries humanity longed to fly and now that humanity flies it is like ‘eh’. A
new frontier is required. Daniel Alexander points out that there will be an
all-night dance. Such things are difficult for dolphins that typically do not
dance. Life as swimmers means that dolphins rarely get to practice both of
their dance moves. Apparently Daniel Alexander has ‘Space Jam’ readily
available, once more referring to the fact that such dolphins have at least a
limited knowledge of 90s nostalgia. If even aquatic animals are aware of 90s nostalgia
than maybe 90s nostalgia has gone too far. Perhaps it is time to create new
types of culture, the kind of culture that engages. Judging by the passionate
head bobbing of Daniel Alexander perhaps Daniel Alexander offers a movement
into a whole new world devoid of nostalgia and full of fun.
