Game: “Drink It” or “Sink It” Challenge

 

Silver and Gold, a subtle sweet flavored tequila cocktail. The panel came down right in the middle between “Drink It” or “Sink It.” It was a bit to subtle for some of the panel. And it was also said to be surprisingly smooth. Tell us what you think.

Topic: Creativity, the how’s and when’s and where’s…..

 

The panel starts with where they get creative. Luke’s is the shower. Major Monocle’s is close to the shower.

 

Oktober is stimulated by colors. Which leads to an interesting discussion on the psychology of color.

 

Nabbit says that he better taps into his creative essence when he is tired. It breaks down the walls between the conscious and sub-conscious parts of his brain.

 

Major Monocle thinks creatively in more of a mechanical way. The way the bits and pieces form together. Nabbit discusses the eternal struggle between Engineers and Artists.

 

Oktober discusses the likelihood that artists tend towards depression and bi polar disorders. Nabbit explains that the pressure of planned creative activity is part of the challenge.
