Wary reminiscence (or: Let's Recap)

Unread postby PriamNevhausten » Mon Aug 18, 2008 10:22 am

Been meaning to do this for a long time. Remember some of the old catchphrases that used to get slung around all the time? The internet wasn't always a collective spasm of cat images and "first post" assery, for example. Let's go over the old stuff, may they remain dead despite this thread. Keep your shovels handy.

I'm Rick James.
Jesus is fucking metal.
All your base.

I know you guys can come up with more. Let's get comprehensive! (Monty Python quotes, largely, need not apply--that sort of quotationgasmia is timeless.)
"You haven't told me what I'm looking for."
"Anything that might be of interest to Slitscan. Which is to say, anything that might be of interest to Slitscan's audience. Which is best visualized as a vicious, lazy, profoundly ignorant, perpetually hungry organism craving the warm god-flesh of the anointed. Personally I like to imagine something the size of a baby hippo, the color of a week-old boiled potato, that lives by itself, in the dark, in a double-wide on the outskirts of Topeka. It's covered with eyes and it sweats constantly. The sweat runs into those eyes and makes them sting. It has no mouth, Laney, no genitals, and can only express its mute extremes of murderous rage and infantile desire by changing the channels on a universal remote. Or by voting in presidential elections."

I'm 24, and thus "out of it", but is O RLY lame yet? That actually felt lame from the get-go... Oh, and there's "Internet is serious business"...

Something about Sparta and mental instability. I forget how it goes.

Also, there's always the racially-sensitive "I'ma firin' mah laza!" or however it's spelled. I'd apologize that I don't have an accompanying image if I were 12.

Also also, I'm pretty sure that as long as people take things way too seriously, "_____ is SERIOUS BUSINESS" will continue to be a relevant part of the Internet lexicon. I could be wrong on this.
Anime is kind of like fish in that it is better the less "fishy" it is.

<center>Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I liked to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air</center>

Godwin's.
Oh, and responding to peoples' requests for aid with "Try hitting ALT+F4" or telling them how to format their hard drive instead.

AOL chat rooms, and programs that would make peoples' screens flicker or whatever.

Comprehensive answers? In MY thread?

Over the bridge? :D?
Over the bridge! :D!

Lelele~

And, damn it, I know this was mostly on 4chan, it's still one of my favorite copypasta memes:

Okay, so my girlfriend was supposed to come over to my house today because I was going to go take her to a movie. She lives about 20 minutes away, and the movie we were supposed to see started at 4:15, which was in about 40 minutes. I figured "cool, I'll just play Pokemon while I wait".

So I'm playing Pokemon, and having a pretty damn good time. Anyway, she finally does show up, except she's crying as she walks into my room. Instead of doing the right thing by comforting her, I half-focus on my game and her. She starts telling me her cat died, and just as she was getting into it, I get into a random encounter in my game.

A shiny pidgey. Holy shit. (For those of you who don't know/care, shiny pokemon have less than a 1/1000 chance of appearing). I stare into my screen in amazement, yelling "holy shit, YES", interrupting her mid-story. She sobs more, and she starts to yell "You don't even fucking care! YOU JUST WANT TO PLAY YOUR FUCKING GAME!" I'm still looking at my screen, still focusing on catching my shiny pidgey, when she walks over, and tosses the game against the wall. I run over and pick up my DS hoping that nothing has changed on screen, and quickly noticed that she broke it. My system and my shiny pidgey, gone forever.

I start screaming every obscenity I know, and started flailing my arms around. I didn't know she was behind me, and apparently I backhanded her in the face while I was being a dumbass and swinging my fists around. She yells out "FUCK YOU", and runs out of my house in tears.

What have I done? I've fucked up so badly, and I need to know how to approach her. I don't want a game of Pokemon to be responsible for ruining my best relationship ever. Help me, /b/.
