Internet Comment culture is perpetually fascinating to me, and I will still eventually release my “Experiment In Internet Comments,” but I wanted to give you all a brief glimpse into their little world. I put up a little thing about Jurassic Park about a month ago. It’s on the front page of Cracked right now, and it brought us the following, from someone calling themself “CodySucks.”
Its almost as if Cody’s keyboard makes it so that whenever he types an endless landslide of diarrhea (shitslide) just oozes out onto the internet and instantly becomes labled as comedy. Now personally I think he is being satirical of bad comedy by posting something that is so completely foul and unfunny in every sense that it cannot possibly be taken seriously. But by posting something as wretched as this he has somehow created a masterpiece due to the fact that this is clearly a mockery of all of those internet articles that end up being sorry and dissapointing.
Six minutes later, this was posted by someone going by “Mark McDoggle.”
I think the fact that Cody’s antithesis (a.k.a. CodySucks) has made a short paragraph that contains more comedy than the entire collective works of Cody himself happens to be hilarious. That is all.
This would not be anything special, except for the fact that I can see the users’ ip addresses. What I’m getting at is that these two people are actually the SAME PERSON. More than the grammar, the spelling, and the unwarranted disgust, I think that this fact is the most telling of how these people think and how they view themselves. That is all.
If you get into the right state of mind, all of these songs are really impressive and surreal. Also, the guy’s “story” is entertaining, if only for the poor use of a rabbit hole as the trigger for his dimensional journey. Also, he claims to want to be anonymous, then signs his name at the end. Either way, listen. These are fun.
One of the requirements for the contest was that it had to be under 5 minutes. We managed to get the take done in 4 minutes, 59 seconds, and 29 frames. So, yay for us, we were a frame away from having to do it again. Anyway, that’s why there are no credits. Here’s everyone that would have been in the credits. Amazing job, everyone…
