I’ve only watched one episode of how I met your mother so Neil Patrick Harris is still Dougie Howser/the psychic guy in Starship Troopers to me. But I’m familiar enough with the various memes that have s spread across the tubes to find this amusing.
A couple of weeks ago there was a video circulating the tubes of a guy singing Mad World in Gollum’s voice. That guy is Ijameswalters (I’m going to assume his name is James Walters?) and he’s released a new video of himself and an uncredited female singer (Why Precious not credit female singer?) covering Gotye’s Somebody That I Used to Know.
You can skip the first couple of minutes of it, which consists of a skit where Gollum plays psychiatrist.
I posted the above quote to Facebook because I was annoyed at the number of people that had put up complete and utter crap superimposed on a pretty picture in the interest of looking or feeling deep and meaningful and someone replied with that image. Fair play to them but my point still stands.
It’s not profound! It just isn’t, I hate the practice, it’s all over the internets clogging up the tubes! Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest all of them have people guilty of this. I want to rant about this but it annoys me so much I actually can’t be bothered expressing the vehement hatred I have for this practice. So I’m just going to shut up and let you get along with your day…
