A talent for both music and comedy makes MasherButtons a real CoMmunity favourite! We caught up with the creator of the beautiful For The Dreams I Can’t Remember, and the hilarious Horsey, to learn more about them.
What do you like to do in the Dreamiverse?
What don’t I like to do!?! I live in there! Sculpting, building little games, painting, making tunes, playing everything! If I am a hamster, Dreams is my pellet. GOTTA HAHH MAHHH PELLETS!!! Actually the only thing I don’t do a ton of is curation.
If you could give other member of the CoMmunity a piece of advice for their time in Dreams, what would it be?
Don’t limit yourself by your own limitations. I personally suck at logic. If I’m the shiny, steel cladded, bumbling, knight of chaotic good, then logic is Ocnus the ghoulish Fire-O-Mancer who’s stolen the town’s cherished golden amulet of protection & easy-read magazines. Every day I work to conquer it. I don’t let his smoke fog, flame spear, lava blasts, and horrid stench of pungentness discourage me. For long. There’s too much information, great help from fellow dreamers, tutorials, videos, etc to ever tip the scales in Ocnus’ favour. Never stop trying to smite your nemesis Ocnus!
What was the first thing you created in Dreams?
I sculpted three little flowers in a bunch! It was euphoric. I was immediately hooked.
Favourite food, movie and song, in that order. GO!
Food (in real life and Dreams): A Greasy Meal
Real life movie: The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Dreams movie: Impception
Song (in real life and Dreams): You Do You
How can people find you in the Dreamiverse?
First star to the right, and straight on till morning! Or search for the Hot Dog Song in DreamShaping. Or on Twitter @MasherButtons, or catch me sporadically watching and engaging with Dreamers as they stream the streams they dream to stream.
Which creations are currently your Top 10 in Dreams?
Preface: The following is just a tiny sample of my favourite creations in Dreams. I am, every day, Every. Single. Day. Gobsmacked at all of the talent and incredible experiences to behold. Picture like a fire hydrant. You ever seen one of those things turned on? That’s how much greatness blasts out into the Dreamiverse every day!
You Do You
PIC-GONE - Nonogram Puzzle Collection
Metal Eagles: UC
Coldo - For some reason I can only find one of the funniest little dudes ever created on vimeo (@swatpaz), but I am sure Coldo was built in Dreams (there’s no way to tell, and you cannot change my mind).
Who’d you like to get to know in the Dreamiverse? We’ll ask them some questions for next month’s newsletter!
Well first off, my sincerest thanks to venwave for picking me for this. Ven’s an inspiration to us all. A huge like and massive thumbs up, also, to the folks at Media Molecule. We’ve been given such a gift.
Second off (no-one uses second off, but I like it) - lately I have been picking the brain of an incredibly intelligent man. If I’m the shiny, steel cladded, bumbling knight of chaotic good, then this guy’s the freaking king’s wizard! I picture him sitting in his library of handwritten tomes, quill in hand, plotting out the universe and its infinite intricacies, giggling to himself all the while. His name is TAPgiles. Tell us how it is, Tap!
