The thing to do is get as many as possible all going at once. Then you can huddle in a corner and weep, like me.

Linky for Firefox makes this a simple select and click.

And in this case, it's awesome.

If you really want to freak out, add a Risset scale.

There's an ominous descending scale there, and another one here, but the ascending ones are equally cool.

Ot weep outloud, no one will be able to hear you within 100 yards anyway.

Properly motivated, most males can approximate this screech successfully. The proper motivation, however, is blatant disregard for one's larynx and mental well-being.

Using Linky to open them all at once was glorious. Rather than starting precisely simultaneously, they started a couple seconds apart from each other, one after the other. The effect was a terrifying, continuously rising crescendo of soul-shattering horror. It reminded of that scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark when the Bible ghosts come flying out of the ark, melting Nazis.

Also, I'm going to take the advice of one of the YouTube commenters and make this my message alert tone.

posted by Johnny Assay at 5:24 AM on March 24, 2009


I'm assuming my browser/internet connection is just not strong enough to handle this -- I loaded as many tabs as I could, reloaded, and all I heard was a several high pitched wails. Did I miss out on something? Or did I just not have significant tabs loaded?

Hrmph. I was hoping for some sort of Cthulu gibber gibber experience. I'm bummed.

I find it a little disturbing how often NItro keeps popping up. First on pretty much every episode of Headbangers Ball, then the endless Michale Angelo videos on you tube, then Jim Gillette shows up on Mythbusters, now this.

I was just telling myself this morning that I have to stop wasting time in Metafilter threads. Then I came in this one (I thwart my own self all the time.), and this was here. And I thought, "nosila, you're an idiot. Of COURSE you should waste time in Metafilter threads."

does anyone remember the old Freeverse software app for mac called "Jared, Butcher of Song?" It was a singing smiley face that when you clicked on it, it would sing what sounded like a traditional spanish song, except in no spanish anyone could recognize, and the singing was so atonal and awful that it was simultaneously horrific and hysterically funny.

well, anyway, it was an old OS 9 app, and free and rather popular. Anyway, the best part was you could open it many many times simultaneously and rush through clicking them all. It became this horrific dischordant assault that would cause my friends and I to crack up until we lost all sense of hearing and noticed blood coming out of our ears.

Oh hey! they've re-released it for OS X! from the people that brought you Sim Stapler!

awwww, the OSX version can only have one open at a time. oh well, back in the OS 9 days, they actually created a version that was 16 singing jareds for your convenience. but sadly, those days, too, are gone.

Best part was after following Awakened's instructions and enduring the hilarious/skull fucking cacophony that ensued, and the screaming died down and the tear salt stained, I heard:

"Barry, your ears are bleeding."

Yes. Yes they are.

Oh, god

The best part is that I'm hearing the bleeding ear skit at the end of all that.

I'm not looking, just listening. The audience reactions are keeping me away from that tab.

Actually if you look on that page, Freeverse has also provided a Jared widget: "If you add like a bazillion of these Widgets, you get the most amazing Jared chorus. Never has life been better."

Thanks for the memories.

Wasn't there a "youtube hd" thingy a while back that would play 4 youtube videos in the same browser window, with a "PLAY" button that would control them all?

This is in dire need of that. I just about stopped breathing when I followed the instructions given.
