On on the site ?catoverflow
This is one of those instances where I'd already seen the GIF before and sort of knew what was coming, but then I laughed anyway because I didn't expect familiar music. And it works.

That's cool. I always did say that there's lots of creativity and untapped potential in purposely horrible fad mashups and weird sound experiments. Maybe the "message" is often the same (if there is ever really a message), but the execution is always interesting to see (and, as we predicted, the "direct rip" sites that were popular back then have been rendered obsolete by Youtube, so we kind of "won", I guess?)

It's funny how this sort of weird fad transformation stuff leaked out of YTMND and seems to have taken over a greater part of the Internet as a whole. It's interesting to think that stuff like this had a part in it, isn't it? Makes me feel a little bit better about squandering my youth applying random graphic filters to extremely low quality Simpsons screengrabs.

Anyway, keep doing what you love. I'll be here to dole out sporadic 5s when I'm feeling wistful and nostalgic. :)

I've got a few ideas here and there for low-effort stupid sites, but it's just not the same without the wide audience, from the silly incoherent comments to the angry people who think I'm seriously "anti-fad" or whatever.

I've said before that I can't "think" the way I used to in 2005-2009 when I was at my most inspired, but that's not entirely (if at all) true because houseofcards and I still joke about stuff on this site all the time and still have plenty of ideas. It's hard to find motivation nowadays though, and that's the main problem.

I still love this site though. YTMND was a weird way for me to "lash out" at my crippling online anxiety and seeming inability to learn any fancy image/sound editing techniques/software when the site started to get more popular in late 2004 or so. I wasn't really angry or "anti-fad" or whatever. I was just a bored young adult; an awkward (though admittedly charismatic) kid with no education, no job, and no prospects for the future save for video games, so making sites was a good way to relieve that.

And I guess we kept going from there. Purposely bad fad compilations mutated into noise sites, which mutated into me trying to make sites based off of incoherent stream-of-consciousness ramblings about current YTMND fads interspersed with random messing around in Goldwave. When I say its hard to "think like that" anymore, that's what I'm getting at: I can do the rambling text okay for a bit before I think "Yeah, I'm not really feeling this anymore", and I can't do the Goldwave thing without it feeling too forced.

But like I said, I still love this place. I love the little history we left behind on it, where we just did "parodies" of what's popular and continually tried to out-absurd or out-loud each other, both through sites and through comments.

Sorry for the long, stupid comment.

When I was a kid, "Under the Umbrella Tree" was always followed up by "...where all the animals take a leak". It was our first-grade idea of being clever.

Did I say "Never change" to you sometime over the past 10+ years? Because you never did. Thank you for that.
