0598: "Porn"

Postby J the Ninja » Wed Jun 17, 2009 4:01 am UTC

Alt: "I have a thing for corrupt women."


Was Randall inspired by the porn thread over in LSR? It seems rather timely from the progress of that thread...

EDIT: Well, this thread title fits right in with the rest of the Russian bots.

EDIT 2: Forgot the link! I'm new at doing these threads.....

Hmm... I'm guessing it might have been funny had I seen that thread earlier but I don't think that this one was very funny.

Too many sex jokes all too strung too close together. One or two is funny, but... yeah.

The only part that got a slight laugh from me is the alt-text. That was good. Not great, but witty. Maybe I'm just used to puns being bad so I'm biased against them?

Not to mention the previous comics with sex jokes were much funnier.

The link in the OP is broken, it goes to "addicted" discussion rather than "porn".

Now, this being the internet and rule 34 being.... rule 34, where be the porn site with intentionally overloaded servers and low data transfer caps to replicate dial up?

Not at all; it just seems overrepresented in comics about sex, compared to other sexytimes activities.

Hey, at least this comic actually had an original joke . . . wait is it? I swear that I've heard this one befo- OH.

http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=1547

Alt-text almost, NEARLY saved it from being totally unenjoyable. If I hadn't noticed the ripoff, it might be a mildly appealing comic.


Randy needs to get off sex. ESPECIALLY oral sex with stick figures.

And by get off, I mean stop doing it, not getting off on it like he appears to be doing now.

I think instead of "we had dial-up" it should have said "this was in the dial-up days" ... it's not like people with slower connections got blockier video in those days; they just got to have the video pause a million times to say "Buffering..."

Hmm, I wonder if Randall was open-source-only back then, and wouldn't have had WMV capabilities. Not that this is meant to be actually autobiographical of course.

I don't think the scenario in the comic is likely, but have been wondering if modern audio compression noise will become a popular "effect" in the future.

I can't stand the noise-cancellation artifacts (that's what I think the distortion is) in Windows Media files. I know that amplifier distortion became a popular effect starting some time in the 60's. If I ever have kids, I can envision refusing to listen to the music they like because of deliberately-added distortion like that in WMA or MP3 files.

I've been thinking lately that there's something about late 90's video games that looks really cool.
The low-poly count, maybe, the blocky textures and 640 by 480 resolution.

But mostly I think it's the dithering. Dithering just looks cool somehow. It makes things interesting.

There are several factual issues with this comic:

1) When 14.4 modems ruled the roost, the internet did not have that many ads - most certainly not x10 ads.
2) During the age of dialup-and-x10-ads porn, there sure as hell wasn't any video.
