“It’s based on the absurd premise that you’ve slipped in a convenience store and now you are cursed to wake as a convenience store at some crappy interval. Cool, right? Terrible, right? Doesn’t make any sense? Perfect.”- Crapland 2, The Author
We like to think of it as Bored Surrealism. It’s definitely inspired by David Lynch’s Dumbland.
Most of all, it’s internally consistent and takes itself seriously while also being an absurdist commentary.
