A part of me is disturbed. The other wants to right click and save some of these, but alas. I cannot.

I like how it loads up a new set whenever you get to the bottom. I wonder how low I can go before my browser asplodes....

my browser (Safari) didn't like that too much.

That synced quite nicely with The Knife's "Like a Pen", the song I happened to be listening to when I clicked.

There was one .gif that went like five minutes. It was an awesome little movie!

you don't post boob-shaking gifs on metafilter, and we don't go and post the goldberg variations on 4chan, ok?

[Oblig.] So these GIFs, they move?

Also, I thank the author for not using the recursive Hasselhoff.

That is cool. How does it work?

wow.. it's neverending, arbitrary, inane, disposable, banal, a cheap thrill, quickly moving, mesmerizing, addictive, highly reliant on bricolage -- it sums up the internet. this is what i call art.

You're the Metafilter now dog.

....Does the site ever finish loading to the point where you can actually see the images instead of a blank screen?

Or is that just me?

I've been downloading Animated GIFs for a good year or so from a feed that finds the most marked/credited delicious bookmarks. At some point I'll dump that thing out.

This is exactly like Idiocracy and BTTF 2 thought the future of TV would be. A bunch of amusing random movement along with the occasional comely well endowed woman jiggling her breasts.

I'm most ashamed to admit that while both movies were acting like that would be a bad form of media and an amplified version of the worst on TV today, I kind of like it in this format. Once you're bored, just stop scrolling down.

Granted, I also liked YTMND in high school, which is kind of exactly that, plus a cutesy music loop. Maybe I'm a low brow HURF DURF TV WATCHER trapped in a mid to high-brow nerd's brain.

There's a lot of benchmarks these days for browser speed, but I think we need to test browser endurance. This site is most definitely the perfect one for that test.

I'm in Chrome for Mac, and I'm about two pages below the one where the Smurf is breastfeeding from a lady. I guess that's impressive, but I guess I need to compare it to others, first.

I kept scrolling until I got a 'low memory error'. Not sure if the problem is a fault with Firefox, or that I find animated GIFs mesmerizing.

beaucoup de ces GIF sont d'origine au b3ta, n'est-ce pas?

A site of mine that got mentioned on metafilter is also a known benchmark. But it's still under construction.

OK, but tired of it rather quickly. Overall a meh.

I can now say every animated GIF I will ever see from now on is a repost thanks to this site.

Yay, this one is from Monkey Island!

Seeing things I recognize and like in here redeemed this a little bit, because it made me forget about the big awful page of GIFs and remember things I like. So thanks, I guess?

What was the deal with the mailperson van gif? Didn't quite get the point of that one. (Not to say any of the others had a point either)

Thanks.

When I got down to the Koyaanisqatsi gif I started thinking about these gifs being used to show technology's influence in our home lives and my mind blew up.

then I had a seizure

With any luck, that seizure shook loose whatever was in your brain that was preventing you from simultaneously hating it and finding it genius with no feeling of contradiction.

Splunge, you can DO THINGS while you're on salvia? You're doing it wrong.
posted by tehloki at 4:01 AM on December 31, 2009


Well actually I guess anybody can do things if flopping around on the floor and yelling counts as a thing. What I meant is closer to "you can UNDERSTAND REALITY on salvia?" Looking at a gif is pretty hard when you can't see
posted by tehloki at 4:02 AM on December 31, 2009


Splunge, you can DO THINGS while you're on salvia? You're doing it wrong.

Nope. I was just saying that it looked a lot like some of the experiences that I had whilst doing salvia.

PS I don't suggest that anyone do salvia. It's a strong chemical. OTOH it's legal, now. YMMV Do not Taunt Happy Fun Ball!
