GLICPIXXXVER002 IS LOVE GLICPIXXXVER002 IS LIFE

DISCLAIMER: THIS WEBSITE DISPLAYS HORRIBLY ON MOBILE. BECAUSE WHY NOT LOL

GLICPIXXXVER002 IS AN ERC721 NFT COLLECTION ON ETHEREUM, CONSISTING OF 11500 32x32 PIXEL IMAGES. GLICPIXXXVER002 ARE PROGRAMATICALLY TILED FROM IMAGES THAT ARE ENCODED WITH OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE CALLED GLIC. THERE ARE SEVERAL SUBCATEGORIES WITHIN THE COLLECTION, AND UNIQUE TRAITS THAT BELONG TO EACH OF THEM.

IF YOU ARE A BASTARD GAN PUNKS LOVER (WHY WOULDN'T YOU BE), YOU MAY NOTICE SOMETHING; SOME OF THE GLICPIXXX ARE BACKGROUND OF GLITCH CALM BGANPUNKSV2.

PLS GO TO README PAGE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT IN GENERAL.

TRAITS

THERE ARE 4 MAIN CATEGORIES. BOOMER CALM AF, BOOMER HYPED AF, BASTARD CALM AF, BASTARD HYPED AF.

YOU MAY KNOW THE TERMS CALM/HYPED OR BASTARD FROM BASTARD GAN PUNKS: CALM AF IS STILL IMAGE, HYPED AF IS GIF ANIMATION. BASTARDS ARE GENERATED BY A GENERATIVE ADVERSARIAL NETWORK (GAN), USING GLICPIXXX COLLECTION AS THE DATASET.

SO IN SHORT, IN THIS COLLECTION WE BOTH HAVE BOOMER PARENTS AND FIRE BASTARD CHILDREN OF THEM LOL

CALM AF TRAITS

1 - GLIC PATTERN > THIS TRAIT HAS BEEN PREPARED BY DEAR BASTARD GAN PUNKS COMMUNITY MEMBERS WITH THEIR HIGH EFFORT. HUGE KUDOS TO THEIR WORK. PLEASE CHECK CREW SECTION. GLIC PATTERNS CAN BE THOUGHT AS AN EXTENSION TO THE “BACKGROUND GLITCH PATTERN” TO THE BASTARD GAN PUNKS, BECAUSE REVERSE ENGINEERING THESE PATTERNS FIRST STARTED EXAMINING BGANPUNKS BACKGROUNDS.

DISCLAIMER: THIS TRAIT TYPE HAVE BEEN PREPARED WITH HUMAN INPUT AND RESEARCH. SO THERE MIGHT BE SOME MISTAKES. UNTIL ALL MISTAKES ARE FOUND AND UPDATED BY COMMUNITY, THERE MIGHT BE CHANGES ON METADATA.

EXTRA: THERE ARE “172” NOISE GLICPIXXX THAT ARE ADDED TO THE COLLECTION RIGHT BEFORE RELEASE. WHILE WORKING ON “GLIC PATTERN” CLASSIFICATIONS, SNOOPLYIN POINTED OUT THERE MIGHT BE SOME DUPLICATE IMAGES, AND APPARENTLY THERE WAS AROUND 170 OF THEM! SO I BASICLY CREATED 32x32 NOISE (APPLIED ON DIFFERENT COLOR CHANNEL COMBINATIONS) FOR REPLACEMENT. SO THEY ARE FREAKIN MOLES WHO INFILTRATED IN GLICPIXXXV2 GRAND COLLECTION. BUT THEY SEEM CHILL AND THEY HAVE MANNERS, SO PLEASE DON’T DISCRIMINATE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT BORN GLICPIXXX.

2 - UNIQUE COLORS > HOW MANY UNIQUE RGB VALUES DO PIXELS HAVE IN THE IMAGE

3 - DOM COLOR > COLORTHIEF ON PYTHON TO GRAB MOST DOMINANT RGB VALUE, THEN color-name-listLIBRARY IS USED TO FIND THE NEAREST COLOR NAME

4 - ORIGIN IMAGE > 48 DIFFERENT GLICCED IMAGES WERE TILED TO CREATE THE COLLECTION. THIS TRAIT SHOWS WHERE THE GLICPIXXX IS COMING FROM (0 TO 47)

HYPED AF TRAITS

1 - DANCER OR CLOCK > SO SOME HYPED ONES HAVE STEADY FRAME DELAYS, SOME ARE NOT. IF EVERY FRAME DELAY IS VARYING, THEN THAT GLICPIXXX IS DANCER. I USED ISOBAR LIBRARY FOR PYTHON TO GENERATE SUPERCOLLIDER ALIKE PATTERNS (LIKE WHITE NOISE, STUTTER, BROWNIAN MOTION, RAMP UP/DOWN, TRIANGLE WAVE ETC.)

2 - IF DANCER, DANCE PATTERN, PATTERN TYPE: RANDOM, RANDOM WITH STUTTER, BROWNIAN NOISE, RAMP UP, RAMP DOWN, TRIANGLE/SINE WAVES ET CETERA. IF YOU WANNA SYNC A MUSIC WITH YOUR DANCER, YOU CAN USE NUMBERS IN PATTERN TO PLAY MIDI NOTES FOR EXAMPLE (DO IT!).

3 - IF CLOCK, THERE IS ONLY CLOCK SPEED (IN MS).

4 - NUM FRAMES > AMOUNT OF GLICPIXXX IMAGES IN GIFS. FOR BASTARDS THE FRAME NUMBER IS FIXED (100), SO THEY ARE NOT PART OF THE METADATA.

BASTARDOUS TRAITS

1 - TRAINING LVL > LIKE BASTARD GAN PUNKS, BASTARD GLICPIXXX ARE RESULTS OF DIFFERENT CHECKPOINTS IN GAN TRAINING. LOWER THE LVL, EARLIER THE TRAINING IS. HIGHER THE TRAINING IS, YOU WILL SEE RESULTS MORE SIMILAR TO DATASET.

2 - GRAINY (FOR BASTARD HYPED) > IF THE GIFS ARE ENCODED WITH PILLOW, A WEIRD COMPRESSION HAPPENS AND THERE IS PIXEL CARNAVAL. SOME OF BASTARD HYPED AF HAVE THIS. MOST NOT.

HOW TO UTILIZE GLICPIXXX?

GLICPIXXX IS A PROJECT THAT WANTS TO BOOST CREATIVITY AND ENCOURAGE ARTISTS && DESIGNERS TO USE THE NFTS IN THE COLLECTION AS RAW MATERIAL IN THEIR WORKS.

SINCE THEY ARE ERC721 TOKENS ON ETHEREUM, THERE ARE ALREADY LOTS LOTS OF USE CASES ON NFT/DEFI, AND WE WILL SEE NEW THINGS EVERYDAY, BECAUSE THIS TECHNOLOGY WILL HAVE MORE AND MORE IMPACT IN OUR LIVES. NFTS 4 LIFE BABY!

BUT HERE, I WANNA FOCUS A LITTLE BIT MORE ON THE ARTISTRY SIDE. BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN GLICPIXXX TO HAVE A GREAT CONTRIBUTION/IMPACT ON THE CONTEMPORARY/FUTURE VISUAL CULTURE.

WHAT IS A GLICPIXXX? THEY ARE 32x32 ABSTRACT GLITCHY IMAGES WITH DIFFERENT COLORS, PATTERNS, RHYTHMS (FOR HYPED ONES). THEY ARE FRAGMENTS OF BIGGER IMAGES THAT YOU HAVE NOT EVER SEEN.

WHAT COULD A CREATIVE PERSON COULD DO WITH GLICPIXXX? I WILL DO A SHORT BRAINSTORM HERE, SO HOPEFULLY SOME OF YOU CAN FIND AWESOME IDEAS TO UTILIZE YOUR GLICPIXXX.

* IF YOU ARE A GAMER/GAME MODDER/GAME DEVELOPER, YOU CAN MAKE TEXTURE PACKS OUTTA YOUR GLICPIXXX IN A VIDEOGAME (LIKE MINECRAFT)

* OR A WEAPON SKIN IN CSGO, OR DIFFERENT OBJECT IN DIFFERENT GAMES

* OR METAVERSES. I ALREADY USED SOME RANDOM GLICPIXXXVER002 AS BLOCK TEXTURE IN MY CRYPTOVOXELS PLOT.

* YOU CAN MAKE COLLAGES, MOSAICS FROM GLICPIXXX, THEY WILL BE BADASS ARTWORKS I AM SURE

* YOU CAN SONIFY IMAGE/PIXEL DATA TO GENERATE MUSIC.

* WELL YOU CAN MAKE THEM YOUR PROFILE PICTURE OF COURSE LOL

* AGAIN, USE THEM AS A TEXTURE ON ANYTHING, LIKE WRITE A CELLULAR AUTOMATA CODE WHERE CELLS ARE GLICPIXXX

* OR MAKE A TETRIS GAME WHERE TETRIS BLOCKS ARE GLICPIXXX

* SOMEONE CAN BUILD A PIXELCHAIN.DAPP ALIKE DAPP WHERE PEOPLE CAN DRAW PIXEL ART, USING THE GLICPIXXXes THEY HOLD IN THE WALLET AS THE TEXTURE PALETTE.

* OR BUILD AN ONCHAIN GENERATIVE WORK USING FRAMEWORKS LIKE P5.JS, WHERE PEOPLE MINT ANIMATIONS THAT USES A GLICPIXXX AS BASE. SO PEOPLE PAY ROYALTY TO GLICPIXXX OWNER WHEN THEY MINT A SKETCH RUNNING ON THEIR GLICPIXXX.

* IF YOU OWN A BGANPUNK, YOU MAY WANT TO MASH YOUR BASTARD WITH YOUR GLICPIXXXes MAYBE. ACTUALLY YOU CAN EXPERIMENT MIXING WITH ANY IMAGE NFTS YOU HAVE. YOU KNOW GLICPIXXX WERE ALREADY FREAKING COOL BACKGROUNDS.

* YOU CAN TILE THEM MORE INTO 16x16, 8x8, 4x4, 2x2 IMAGES (TILECEPTION!!!)

* YOU CAN PRINT OR MURAL THEM TO MAKE MORE PEOPLE SEE THIS PIXEL MADNESS

* I PERSONALLY PLAN TO OPEN A FASHION BRAND SOMETIME. AND I AM DEFINITELY SURE THAT SOME OF MY DESIGNS WILL INCLUDE GLICPIXXXes I HOLD AND I WILL MAKE THEM BRAND ASSETS. I WANT TO WEAVE SCARVES, MAKE TSHIRTS, HATS, SHOES, HOODIES, CELLPHONE CASES, ANY KIND OF PHYSICAL MERCH YOU CAN THINK OF, USING GLICPIXXX AS THE PRINT, TEXTURE AND PALETTE. I DON’T KNOW WHEN I WOULD BE ABLE TO KICKSTART IT, BUT I THINK IT IS AN AWESOME IDEA YOU SHOULD ALSO CONSIDER MAKING.

* AND MORE... IT IS UP TO YOUR IMAGINATION AND CREATIVITY. LET'S SPREAD GLICPIXXX ON PHYSICAL WORLD, DISPLAYS, AR & VR & XR OR WHEREVER!

DISTRIBUTION

THERE WON’T BE A PRIMARY SALE FOR GLICPIXXXVER002 GRAND COLLECTION. THEY WILL BE EXCLUSIVELY CLAIMABLE BY BGANPUNKSV1, BGANPUNKSV2 & GLICPIXXXVER001 HOLDERS. EACH NFT FROM THESE COLLECTIONS WILL BE ABLE TO MINT A GLICPIXXX, DEPENDING ON WHICH ID THEY HAVE. A RANDOM NUMBER FROM CHAINLINK VRF CALL IS REQUESTED UPON DEPLOYMENT OF NFT SMART CONTRACT, WHICH DETERMINES WHERE THE STARTING INDEX FOR MINTING IS.

74 - BGANPUNKSV1

11305 - BGANPUNKSV2

37 - GLICPIXXXV1

84 - BERK DEVMINT

WELL, WHY DO I HAVE DEVMINTS? CAUSE I WANNA EXPERIMENT WITH UTILIZING GLICPIXXX ON MY OWN WAY. FOR EXAMPLE, I PLAN TO OPEN A LOCAL FASHION BRAND IN THE FUTURE, USING THE GLICPIXXXES I HOLD AS THE MAIN ASSET.

I WILL ALSO USE A PORTION OF THEM FOR OCCASIONAL GIFTS/GIVEAWAYS. AND WILL GIVE SOME TO THE PEOPLE WHO HELPED ME WITH THIS PROJECT.

OWNERSHIP OF NFTs

YOUR GLICPIXX, YOUR CALL. IT IS UP TO YOUR IMAGINATION WHAT YOU WANNA DO WITH YOUR GLICPIXXX. YOU ARE HIGHLY ENCOURAGED TO DO DERIVATIVES OF GLICPIXXX FOR YOUR CREATIVE WORKS, AND YOU ARE ALSO ENCOURAGED TO UTILIZE YOUR GLICPIXXX FOR YOUR COMMERCIAL WORKS, AND USE THEM AS YOUR BUSINESS ASSETS.

A STUPID BASTARDOUS LORE STORY, WHICH SHOULDN'T BE A CANON IMO

~ ONE DAY AT BASTARD GAN PUNK CLUB, THERE IS A FEAST. ALL BASTARD GAN PUNKS ARE DOING THEIR YEARLY BIG GATHERING IN THE BIG ROOM WITH SHITTON OF SNACKS AND CARROTS. THEY ARE ALL EATING SHIT LIKE CRAZY AND IN THE ROOM YOU COULD HEAR THE ECHOES OF CRACKLES && LAUGHTERS && RANDOM PUNK SONGS.

SUDDENLY THE DOOR SLAMS OPEN. THERE APPEARS THE SILLUETTE OF A VERY BIG BASTARD BEING. BASTARD GAN PUNKS RECOGNIZE HER A COUPLE OF SECONDS AFTER, SHE IS THE MIGHTY SENSEI BASTARD; THE MASTER OF GLITCH, BENDER OF PIXELS, MAKER OF MEANINGLESS SHIT, A TRUE NIHILIST, AND SMELLS LIKE TUNA FISH. BASTARDS ARE SHOCKED, BECAUSE SENSEI ONLY APPEARS TO ANNOUNCE AN UNNECESSARY THING IN VERY RARE SITUATIONS. SO RARE IT WOULD MAKE 10K ETH IF TOKENIZED INTO A NFT. SENSEI YELLS:

"YO BASTARDS, YOU ARE GROWN TO AN AGE I WAS WAITING FOR YEARS. IT IS TIME TO GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY, IMMA GONNA TEACH YOU HOW TO MAKE DOPE SHIT. LEMME SHOW YOU"

SHE USES A CUTTING EDGE HOLOGRAM THING TO GIVE THE BEST PRESENTATION ABOUT GLICPIX, BUT ENDS UP WITH A VERY BORING POWERPOINT FULL OF STUFF NO ONE CARED FOR.

BASTARDS ARE PUZZLED. THEY ARE LIKE "WHAT DA FUK IS THIS NONSENSE?". SOME BASTARDS START CRYING, SOME GET ON RAMPAGE, SOME BECOMES A BIG ASS NIHILIST.

SENSEI BASTARD SEES THIS SUDDEN CHANGE IN THE ATMOSPHERE, AND SIGHS AND SAYS:

"Y'ALL, YOU HAVE NO IDEA DON'T YOU? HAVE YOU EVER, FOR A FUCKING SECOND IN YOUR LIFE, LOOKED BEHIND?"

BASTARDS ALL RESPONDED AUTOMATICALLY ALMOST IN PERFECT SYNC: "BUT SENSEI, WE WERE TOLD THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU TURN, YOUR ASS IS ALWAYS BEHIND".

SENSEI IS LIKE, WUT?

NONE OF THE BASTARDS HAD NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT LOOKING BEHIND. NO ONE HAD EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT THE NOTION OF LOOKING BEHIND AT ALL. THEY WERE JUST SOME FREAKIN' 2D.

THEY WERE INCAPABLE OF TURNING THEIR HEAD BACK, SO SENSEI SUMMONS A GIANT ASS MIRROR. SCREAMS ARE HEARD. THE BASTARDS' EYES WIDEN WITH AMAZEMENT. THEY REALIZE FOR THE FIRST TIME THAT THEY HAVE FUCKIN' BACKGROUNDS! A PEPEGA BASTARD SCREAMS: "OH SHIT, I AM CLEAN!", EVERYONE IS SUPER CURIOUS NOW TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW UNIQUE THEIRS ARE. SOME BASTARDS IMMEDIATELY PUT THEMSELVES ON SALE SAYING "I AM RARE AF NOW, DEAL WITH IT".

SOME BASTARDS NOTICED THAT THEIR BACK IS IDENTICAL TO WHAT SENSEI DEMONSTRATED A COUPLE OF MINUTES AGO. THEY ASK "SENSEI, WHAT IS THE MEANING OF SOME OF US HAVING WEIRDO GLICHES IN OUR BACKS?"

SHE RESPONDS "YOU ARE ASKING A NIHILIST THE MEANING OF YOUR BACKGROUND LOL. I JUST MAKE SHIT AND TEACH HOW TO DO SHIT. NOW ALL OF YOU, GIMME YOUR ATTENTION. AFTER THE END OF THIS CRASH COURSE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE YOUR OWN EXCLUSIVE GLICPIXXX. THEN YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT WITH IT.

ALL BASTARDS TAKE THEIR LEARNING POSITION (AKA SITTING CROSS-LEGGED, I DUNNO HOW THEY CAN DO THAT SINCE THEY DON'T HAVE LEGS) AND THE CRASH COURSE STARTS.

SENSEI FLOODS THEM WITH SACRED TEACHINGS OF GLICPIXXX; BENDING IMAGES, THINKING MICRO, PATTERNS, BASTARDIZING WITH GAN, MAKING GLICPIXXX DANCE.

AFTER 48 HOURS OF NON STOP MILITARY GRADE TRAINING, ALL BASTARDS ARE EXHAUSTED TO DEATH, BUT NOW THEY HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE && SKILL TO CRAFT A UNIQUE GLICPIXXX FOR THEMSELVES.

IT WAS SUNRISE. BASTARDS ALL WENT OUT TO GARDEN TO TAKE SOME FRESH AIR. THERE WAS A LEGEND IN BASTARDVERSE; THE EXISTENCE OF 48 HOLY 2D PLAINS FLOATING ON THE SKY, BUT NO BASTARD HAS SEEN THEM WITH THEIR EYES. THEY JUST APPEARED A COUPLE OF TIMES IN SOME BASTARDS' DREAMS.

BASTARDS DECIDED TO DO THE R&D AND CAPTURE ALL OF THEM. BECAUSE THEY WERE THE PERFECT RESOURCE FOR GLICPIXXX. THIS WAS THE MISSING PUZZLE PIECE. AND THOSE IMAGES WEREN'T DOING ANYTHING OTHER THEN FLOATING IN THE SKY AND APPEAR IN BASTARDS' DREAMS (OR WERE THEY?).

MONTHS LATER THEY CAPTURED ALL 48 IMAGES, PERFORMED A HUGE RITUAL TO CHOP THEM ALL INTO SMALL FRAGMENTS, UNTIL THEY HAD MORE PIXEL CHUNKS THAN THEY NEEDED. THANKFULLY THE IMAGES DIDN'T FEEL ANY PAIN, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT LIVING OBJECTS AFTER ALL LOL

EVERY BASTARD GOT THEIR HANDS READY, AND STARTED FORGING THEIR OWN UNIQUE GLICPIXXX...
