The New Borg by WICKED-ZOEYGIRL The New Borg by WICKED-ZOEYGIRL
I'm so tired of seeing these things, ipod is eating peoples' minds, seriously! So yeah, I'm adding to the multitude of ipod 'fanart', but I'm not a fan, I don't have one, nor do I want one, I'd rather have just a regular mp3 player, and personally, my cd player is working just fine :) So enjoy this bit of satire.


PS- if you don't get it, go watch Star Trek. Who wouldn't know who the borg are? freak ;)

I'm creating a blog about the FaceBorg - collectives of semi-consious echo chambers that make decisions for our whole society now without the participants even realizing they're participating. If I create a Facebook page to go with it, this borg face with the iPod as a banner across the top would be a nifty logo. I know, I could have just stolen it and you'd probably never have known. But I'm also an artist and art fan, so I would never do that. May I either have permission to use your art on my blog, or can we negotiate a use fee? Please email me at elricdarkmoon@me.com. Thanks!

I know this is WAY after the fact, but thank you for asking.  However, I'd really rather you not.  This was meant to be a satire piece that I made in the early 2000's to critique the sudden ipod fad.

I actually love the Borg... Is that bad? I have watched all of the Star Trek TNG episodes with them in it, so it is NOT lack of knowledge about them...

I don't see anything wrong with liking the borg.  They're arguably the best star trek enemy the series has seen.  I think Q is up there too, though I personally don't care for him.

There is a newer borg then, maybe you could make some artwork for that?  When I made this, bronies didn't even exist.

Yes, I have an i-pod. Two, actually. But I've never understood anyone who put buds in their ears. I tried it once in the "outside world" and found it drowned out so much "natural noise" I wasnt to be able to hear other people! And yes, I listen to it, but only where others can listen to it, also (like in my car, for example). But walking around with my ipod (or even at the gym?) No Thanks!!

Actually, when I'm at work my earbuds and a hoodie are my best friends if I'm on a tight deadline and need to get stuff done.  I listen to music or audiobooks or podcasts through my computer, put in my earbuds to isolate myself from the noise and flip up my hoodie to essentially put blinders on from any distractions and get down to work.  The point I was trying to make whit this wallpaper was more poking fun at the cult of mac, which when the first ipod came out years ago was just budding.

I don't care about buying any sort of mp3-player, because instead I just start singing randomly to myself.
(but I do like the style of these ads and the clever adaptations thereof.)

Perhaps you could make your own piece of satirical art?

This piece was completed in all of fifteen minutes almost three years ago, I have no intentions of re-visiting it.

Thanks.

Ipods are very useful when you have annoying siblings. I lost mine for a week and nearly went crazy. (My borther is VERY annoying)

But you can get a similar product for a fraction of the price. My parents bought my sister a $200 ipod, a year later I have one that works just as well for only $50.

My mum bought us one for 50 bucks, it wasn't compatible with the mac. So we bought another one, it didn't work. Then I got an shuffle for free, it worked. My bro's shuffle only cost $75. It works like a charm.
