in fact i would be surprised if all that didn't have a "dude talks in a helium voice" character

I don't know much about WoW but I know internet abbreviations and the Muppets, and I imagine that is enough for a million hits right there.

DM, ZG, UBRS, MC etc are completely specific to WoW (they're abbreviations for dungeons that no one has gone to in like 3.5 years since the expansion packs made them irrelevant).

I think you could draw a line from Fred to Woody Woodpecker if you really tried.

(Note: Fred is the fucking worst, don't get me wrong here.)

I'd only seen Fred on an episode of iCarly that I was watching with my niece. I had no idea he was a real thing until later.

does Fred have a Dyson?

Fred will be a movie soon, if you didn't already know:

First time someone mentioned Fred I thought they meant that green dude who stands around holding a beer can while watching virtual people having sex + refuses to leave when they tell him to. (Don't know the name or even the game, but it's probably second life)

just fyi these is still the funniest WoW internet humor thing I've seen:

people are for loving (HI DERE), Monday, 9 August 2010 20:47 (4 years ago) Permalink

I'm pleasantly reassured by how annoying Fred is. I always assumed that with all the noisy, obscene music I've listened to in my life, there would be nothing my child's generation could come up with that would actually offend me. Fred gives me new hope. Adults are supposed to hate kid/teenager stuff, it's not weird for a bunch of internet dudes in their 20s/30s to not get videos created by a 16-year-old to entertain 12-year-olds.

can we just blanket state "extreme grossout videos" here? like all of the seriously deranged deviant sex stuff like 2g1c and death/dismemberment videos and the like

I dunno, maybe I'm a total freak, but rotten.com has some edifying moments. Like pictures of dead Mussolini.

Fred/Edith Ann parallel is kind of OTM. I remember when I was a kid I used to always like Gilda's caffinated "Judy Miller Show" character.

i have never seen this Stile report tho.

I at least "get" most internet memes unless they're too niche-referential, but I'm probably the only person here that can be brought to tears laughing at stuff like this (warning: loud)

LOL. I actually saw Leslie Hall live about 5 years ago. It was amazing but mostly in a "What the fuck is going on here?!" kind of way.

o sh!t a ˁ˚ᴥ˚ˀ (ENBB), Saturday, 14 August 2010 04:04 (4 years ago) Permalink

seriously, can someone explain why the double rainbow thing is "funny" or "interesting" or anything other than mildly dumb and irritating but not anywhere near the degree requisite for memedom?

If you think there's some degree of quality or funny or... whatever... requisite for memedom, you are WAY behind the curve. Those things have nothing to do with memedom. Rarely even anything to say to it. They're really awkward at parties.

kenan, Saturday, 14 August 2010 04:33 (4 years ago) Permalink

My own theory about double rainbow is that it actually IS pretty damn awesome, but dude can't keep it in check. So it's like, you had me, then you lost your shit. And that's funny.

i don't get the star wars prequel commentary shit that has been posted elsewhere on here, mainly b/c i can't get past the dude's voice and his jokes aren't funny

('_') (omar little), Sunday, 15 August 2010 18:48 (4 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, but those movies are so bad they deserve to have all the reasons pointed out as much as possible. It's great to see that clip of Sir Alec Guinness wistfully talking about how Anakin was the best star fighter pilot in the galaxy, cunning warrior, and a good friend, then have it cut to them bitching at each other in Ep 3. Or Yoda speaking wisdom about the mystery & power of the force from Empire, intercut with Ep 3 footage of him jumping around w a lightsaber like a mindless videogame character. The side-by-side starting at 5:00 in below really nails how GL turned a modern myth into a lifeless, busy-looking piece of merchandise:

Really agree w you tho, this series could have been 5 parts long w/o all that faux horror movie BS.

ya but if u wade thru the annoying voice and stuff (which actually kinda gets funny thru repetition) his analysis is pretty effing great

i like how the criticisms arent fanboyish 'u ruined my childhood' stuff at all, or 'jar jar sucks,' they're just like, how does this story make any sense at all

the disappearance of apollo creed (s1ocki), Monday, 16 August 2010 06:02 (4 years ago) Permalink

Agreed. Great analysis, lame comedy.

But the comedy breaks up the pacing a bit for people who don't want to sit through a sixty-minute video review of a movie from over a decade ago.

no gut busting joke can change history (polyphonic), Monday, 16 August 2010 18:27 (4 years ago) Permalink

I suspect if you removed the horror bits, not only the pacing would suffer but the analysis would seem dumb, too.
there's a fine line between "no duh" and "on the money" and the horror bits lower your critical bars.
"This is pretty astute analysis for a horror-comedy character"
vs.
"This dude is not saying anything that isn't blatantly obvious to anyone who has seen the movies"

I guess there is one way to find out -- has anyone made a phantom edit of this guy's reviews subtracting the horrorcom stuff?
