criteria as decided by me (in descending order of importance)
- ease of use - it shouldn't take 3 different people holding your fingers and 6 minutes to execute this thing
- originality/coolness - we don't want to be mistaken as members of the crips/it shouldn't mistakenly says "i think shakira rules!"
- relevance - if possible, the signal should organicly relate something "audiocrush"
- create a hand signal that is only "audiocrush" because we say it is ... similar to dane cook's su-fi.
- create one that really says audiocrush or something like it. if i could actually make my hands say "audiocrush" ... well, i wouldn't be writing this blog. i'd be selling the services of my superhero-like hands for thousands of dollars an hour.
the rock mod
- concept: it's something we all know with a twist, audiocrush rocks and so should its hand signal
- pros: easy to perform
- cons: doesn't really stand out, kinda sucks
- concept: make one of those special lower case a's <-- like that one
- pros: very representative
- cons: would probably be mistaken for an offensive gesture in certain foreign countries
- concept: this is how deaf people say "into" - linky
- pros: soooo inside the AC circle, only the true AC listeners would get it, also ironic that we're using sign language to talk about something that deaf people would have a hard time enjoying
- cons: casual observers will mistake you for busting a rhyme, i may have offended people with one of the jokes in the "pros" section
- comical extra: check out what other sign i learned
one handed option ...
- concept: the thumb = 1, the fingers = 3, a and c are the first and third letters of the alphabet ... audiocrush
- pros: easy to perform, stands out
- cons: requires a "concept" description that involes equals signs, multiple commas and an elipsis
- concept: use both hands to make an A and a C, obviously the C is a little jaggy
- pros: very easy to flash, representative, generally rules
- cons: your right hand doesn't really look like a C -- ah who am i kidding, there are no cons
