alternate title: Portals-Table for Four?

Created in Apophysis 7x v14 following this tutorial in the Apophysis Tutorial Fun group. Rendered as a .png file, then blended with duplicate layers and a partial abstract gradient background, color adjusted and sharpened in GIMP v2.6 with added supernovae and lens effect, then saved in .jpg format, finally scaled up in UF with Squarry Koch Curve Mapping transform. One of a series of images generated with the instructions in this tutorial called Portals by dA’s SaTaNiA (Damien G.), with nine transforms. Best if viewed larger.


Lyrics
This Was A Triumph
I’m Making A Note Here:
HUGE SUCCESS
It’s hard to overstate
my satisfaction.
Aperture Science
We do what we must
because we can.
For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.

But there’s no sense crying
over every mistake.
You just keep on trying
till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are
Still Alive

I’m not even angry.
I’m being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because
I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data
make a beautiful line.
And we’re out of beta.
We’re releasing on time.
So I’m GLAD. I got burned.
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are
still alive.

Go ahead and leave me.
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you’ll find someone else
to help you.
Maybe Black Mesa. . .
THAT WAS A JOKE. HAHA FAT CHANCE.
Anyway. this cake is great.
It’s so delicious and moist.
Look at me still talking
When Theres Science to do.
When I look out there,
it makes me GLAD I’m not you.
I’ve experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
On the people who are
still alive.

And believe me I am still alive.

I’m doing Science and I’m still alive.

I feel FANTASTIC and I’m still alive.

While you’re dying I’ll be still alive.

And when you’re dead I will be still alive.

STILL ALIVE
