I Love xkcd from NoamR on Vimeo.
Noam sez, "There are so many things to love in this world, so just to point a few of them I've animated the xkcd comic xkcd Loves the Discovery Channel. Singing by the amazing Olga Nunes."
I Love xkcd
I’m a miserable, angry pessimist, but this made me smile.
This actually increased my optimism regarding the future of mankind.
But whether or not that increase was statistically significant, I’m not sure. I’m still bootstrapping the critical values.
After seeing today’s xkcd, I’m feeling rather pessimistic.
Jesus.. I love this.
Oh so much lolz at the very end:
“Robe and wizaaard haaaaaat!”
That was sweet.
Oh my god, I hated this. Why? I love xkcd. I love positive messaging for technology and the future. So what was it about this that set my teeth on edge? I don’t know!!
(I have similar, but not as strong, reactions to This American Life and McSweeney’s. A sense of preciousness? Must think on it more.)
this is a Good Thing.
also, @endymion: whaaaaaa? I can usually understand how people feel about things from other viewpoints, but none of that makes sense to me! this american life and mcsweeney’s both kick ass. and so does this xkcd thing.
I can’t wait for the an XKCD Christmas.
They’ve done others too
NoamR wins the Internet.
So nice I watched it twice!
I think she should have sung the title-text at the end though.
Also, one of my Captcha words is ‘fezes’. It’s gonna be a great day!
But where is the hover text?
man that was so sweet. now i want to go fall in love again.
“Robe and wizard hat” at the end cracked me up!
Robe and Wizard hat line at the end totally takes this into megawin status.
Goddammit, I smiled! This song is infectiously optimistic. <3
