  1. The web swinging in Marvel’s Spider-Man compared to the old Spider-Man 2 with Tobey Maguire. So much lost control, speed, and skill just to make things look more cinematic.

  2. Video game of Blacksad. I was so excited, but the game kept crashing and I really had to give after a while. Never finished It. It’s been over a year, maybe they finally patched it.

  3. That Rainbow Art kit from the early 2000s. I was maybe 4-5 when the commercials started appearing on TV and I WANTED it, because the ads basically promised that there’d be no mess, no fuss, and anyone could make perfect rainbow paintings with one swipe of their sponge brush. Tried it out at a friend’s house once; every time I tried to paint all the colors blurred together in a greyish-brown watery mess. It was a very rude awakening to the cesspool of lies that is corporate marketing.
