You look like shit / what's your problem, bitch? / your legs feel like sandpaper / you can't do anything right

The Whelk, how can I put this delicately,

Are you feeling okay/tired/alright/unsnarky/terrible/fine/in need of a nap/in need of a shave/hammerd/in a ponytail/translocated off a wagon?

Unlike most things like this the words didn't lose meaning after a while, but became more and more literal. Like, it went from, "You look really bad!" to, "You look like you're made of feces."

The best part is that the shift occurred as that one kid was talking to the other kid in a hospital bed in whatever movie that's from.

That embedded video looks like shit.

The entire Huffington Post website looks like shit. The video was taking an age to load, so I scrolled down to read the comments... and scrolled... and scrolled... and seriously how much useless junk can you fit on one frickin' web page (answer: a lot). And by the time I scrolled all the way back up, the video played for 3 seconds before buffering. They have enormous panels for Twitter, Facebook, Digg and Bing, and yet for some reason won't use Youtube to embed their videos?

I just watched that while getting dressed. Now I feel like a downtrodden Bruce Willis, minus the harmonica skills.

You know... what makes things like this work is pacing. Pacing is the invisible god which can make or break nearly anything. That movie that is so funny that you cried and peed yourself laughing? It's funny largely because of pacing. Those commercials that grab your attention when others don't? Pacing made them that way. That stageplay with the brilliant script that was hilarious the first time you saw it, but this new production just left you flat? One had good pacing, and the other didn't.

This video piece. It lacks quality pacing. It's just a collage assembled without any thought for beats or build or anything.

Someone please send Ben Craw back into his editing booth until he emerges with something that doesn't have such shitty pacing.

I'm still waiting for the necksnap megacut. It'll be brutal, and long. Whenever I see the necksnap trope in media, I can't help think about whateverpoor paralyzed guard laying on the floor while the hero goes dancing away.

So, hippybear, are you saying that video looked like shit?

Get out of there!

"You look like shit" is a fractured lesson about our stereotype of Hollywood’s obsession with appearance. None to pleasing to watch.

"Get out of there!" on the other hand is hypnotic and sublime. Thanks, NMcCoy.
