A Compendium of GIFs from ICP’s “Miracles”

April 19th, 2010 3 comments

It would be a little more understandable for someone who grew up without a public education system and the interwebs to be as ignorant as the ICP is.

Sometimes music videos can, in fact, be too good.  A few weeks ago, the Insane Clown Posse, a ridiculous duo from inner city Detroit trailer parks who dress up like clowns while screaming their horrorcore raps [ed. note: I may have to close down this site after realizing I just typed those words], released a touching, pondering video that grasps at one’s heart as you try to fathom just how bad our education system is.

The duo strayed from their normal talks about violence to pen a fitting song about just how little they know about the world.  They even have a line warning scientists and their empirical explanations to stay away because the ICP thinks scientists lie (the ICP also are apparently against climate change scientists).  They actually name a variety of natural phenomena a no things that could even remotely be classified as “miracles.”  It’s almost as ironic as Alanis Morrisette writing a song called “Isn’t it ironic” about a series of coincidences.

The song has taken on minor viral status with features throughout the interwebs, on Attack of the Show and now on Saturday Night Live.  After the jump, I’ve linked the video for those who have been uninitiated.  Also linked are the hilarious Saturday Night Live sketch and a series of my favorite animated GIFs from the interwebs.

Warning, the video includes some bad language (mostly F-bombs) and the page load time will be pretty hearty as the animated gifs are in excess of 10 MB.  Enjoy! Read more…

FollowFriday: @LSUFreek on Twitter

This is a character you’re likely to not know unless you’re a participant in college sports message boards.  On the Rivals.com network, in particular, LSUFreek is legendary for providing hilarious animated GIFs.

Terrance Donnels (the man behind the screenname) was recently granted his own domain on SportingNews.com to further distribute his images and thoughts.  You can visit that site here, but really all you need to do is follow his Twitter feed @LSUFreek.

Linked after the jump are some of my favorite LSUFreek animated GIFs.  There are a ten of them, so it may take a second to load. Read more…

Photo Favorites: Khron

Animated GIFs hold a certain, odd fascination for me.  They’re no more impressive than streaming video, but their simplicity and, often, repetition is engrossing.

Few Animated GIF nature albums have impressed me as much as the one I came across on Tumblr and Flickr by Khron:

I recommend you check out both.  In the meantime, I’ve placed a few of my favorites after the jump.  They’re big files, so be wary when clicking if you care about a non-fast page download or bandwith.  Total size is about 7.5MB.
