I don't know what inspired the Owlisms, but the owl is an awesome icon.

POV, do you mean this because you haven't heard of the GAMMA 256 story?

Gather 'round kids! Let uncle Guert tell you the story of:

The owl that freaked out Gamma 256

Mark Johns(Golds), Steve Swink (SteveSwink), Heather Kelley(mobloid), Damien Di Fede (I think Huh?), Brandon McCartin (BMcC), Phil Fish (fish) and Ivan Safrin (Toastie) behind the camera
Once upon a time, in Montreal, Canada, a small group of indie developers were leaving an event called Gamma 256. The evening had been lovely and it was time for everyone to go back home and dream about the wonderful time they just had. Destiny had something else planned...

As they sayed their good-byes, a common pigeon flew over their heads. Little did it know, this little flight proved to be an horrible mistake. Out of nowhere, an owl flew out of the darkness and viciously attacked it. Dazed and confused, the pigeon landed right in front of our friends and tried to escape by flying away. Unfortunatly for mister pigeon, mister owl had an ace up its sleeve. The noctural hunter zoomed above, landed in the a nearby tree. Few seconds later, feathers floated down on the group.

Since that day, all of the witnesses of this event were deeply affected by the violence of the owl, except Fish, who keeps claiming that he doesn't remember a thing. But in the end, we all know that Fish had the owl under it's command, which explains why he "doesn't remember"...

Now, you know the story... Smiley

Fantastique!

But now, I wonder?  Could the universe survive the Owl wearing a Fez?  Or is this the key to restoring Fish's latent memories?  Were they, perhaps, locked away for a reason?  Grin

fish's locked memories are the key to the salvation of the universe... or its complete destruction.

Has anyone seen Twin Peaks?
The Owls in that show are pretty freaky.. and right after I figured out what the Owls were in the show, that was the day Tigsource updated with the Owl banner on top. Freaky.

What the fuck is a 'Twin Peaks?'

It was a drama show back in the early '90s.

I always heard people talk about it but never actually watched it. Apparently it was filmed right around where I am from.

If you'd seen it, you might have recognized that the above dialogue does, in fact, come from Twin Peaks. I was just being a smug internet nerd in pointing out that I'd already made the connection.
