When I saw who made this site, I was really surprised that Lady Gaga's penis didn't make an appearance.

I'd like to offer a reply to the sentiment you expressed to me privately last week that my sites are the "most boring and most appealing to the internet masses".

Let's look at my highest rated sites, all made in the past couple of months:

[site vannawhite:site] - I can't really say I ever recall seeing a WWF Andre The Giant site on Top Rated before so I don't think you can rightly claim I was pandering in making this site beyond the most general sense that people are maybe hoping to laugh when clicking on a comedy web page.
[site nevertrustawoman:site] - I'll admit this is the type of site I normally avoid making (and most certainly would not have made had I not been the first to use this audio here) but still I resisted going along with the general sentiment expressed by most regarding these tapes by instead celebrating Mel's misogyny. That's [i]The Umfuld Difference[/i].
[site tonightontheboondocks:site] Like with the Vanna White site I don't really see a lot of mention or sites of The Boondocks at YTMND. As far as trying to appeal to the many cowardly online racists who make this their e-home, again, by using a show created by, written by and starring almost exclusively black people I kind of flew in the face of the excepted, and expected, use of the word nigger here.
[site jaymelangford:site] This one underscores my point very well. Seldom will you see a site more tailor made for either fad comp or pop pandering. But compare my choices to the ones Syncan made in his site [site brucecampbell:site]. Rather than pander I used an obscure porno, a superhero I don't ever see on YTMND and although Colbert has some pop appeal I assure you I used that clip simply because it's one of [i]my[/i] favorite shows.
[site lemonades:site] - and finally, welp sure, Batman. What can I say? I'll say this...

Sites I make with Adam West's Batman garner far more views than any other sites I make. Yet I do make a point to resist making too many of these although I'd like to make 10 a day, not because they are popular but because I enjoy them. The reason I'm here is that top viewed Adam West site - I was like gee, people who share my sense of humor. Later I learned that's not really the case. And of course, worth repeating, unlike most people, I hate Batman. And enjoy Adam West's portrayal because he mocks what an idiotic character it is.


Now, let's compare those to your top rated sites:

Star Trek + Lady Gaga - Ooo, how avant-garde!
One with a video game sprite
One with what google tells me is a pokemon
And two Uncle Phil sites, one combined with Star Wars

It's so easy to understand things when you break them down by the numbers, isn't it?

Not just a great idea for a site, but perfect execution as well. The fact that you actually made her go out of focus at the end is a perfect example of attention to detail.
August 14th, 2010

thanks for noticing. data being out of focus was my edit also, it was not in the original footage. i just wanted to focus of lady gaga for a moment then pull it back to data when he speaks.

this syncs perfectly half the time and for the other half it's off at the same point. this syncs perfectly in after effects and as a .avi in any media player. waaaa
August 15th, 2010
(1)
the dimensions some how plays a role in sync as well..ill bet if you made the gif under 500pixels or so it would run perfect
August 15th, 2010
(0)
it's definitely a problem with how the gif plays. when it is off sync the framerate seems to stutter at one of two points.
August 15th, 2010
(0)
i tried that on a test site and the sync was even worse. its fine in chrome. i guess that's the one browser this site gets. it seems like a lot of sites are browser specific.

on an [u]unrelated note[/u], here is the toolkit for the [i]"An Awkward Bluff[/i] [b]fad[/b] site series.

i was a little dissapointed to read that you actually made this as a site whore for top rated purposes. Knowing you (so to speak), I first thought that this was some sarcastic, satrical jab at fearcondom and other TNG site makers. Still a 5 though, just a different kind of 5 now.
August 19th, 2010
(0)
the whore factor wasn't the only thing that motivated me to make this, although i certainly wrote a lot about that part of it. this idea also made me glad because there was no lady gaga sound required, as a number of you have pointed out. the joke actually makes a lot of sense if you're familiar with the data character. i do criticize people for making trendy kinds of things like tng edits, but that doesn't mean i dont enjoy them. and look, i made one! besides, i love tng. it's an awesome show in my life.

given whatever context, an audience will expect what they will expect. that doesn't mean the people who create the context need to limit themselves to what they believe the audience will expect.

haha someone has been slowly downvoting my highest rated site with alts. why? i will never understand. when max deleted lists of alts, i lost a bunch of votes on this and my rating went up. i'm looking at superdreamkilla and johnny lurg, ymnd's set of identical twins. and now, the downvotes are coming back, as slow as they did before...

Oh, is this a recurring thing that they do? I was wondering why my last site suddenly shot up to 4.4 and dropped to 9 votes. And yet, I don't care either way, and I still continue to barely notice that they evem exist.
