Heh, I posted a similar rant on my friend's forum site. I won't post here cause everyone else covered every think I said already.

But seeing so many people agree completely with me on this, it got me thinking...SOMEBODY must be watching this shiat!! Otherwise, WHY is it on the farking idiot-box?! PLEASE GOD tell me that there are millions of people watching and it's not some sort of attack on me and all my fellow nerdlings everywhere by some vast emo/moron/cotton candy fluff conspiracy!!!

Oh wait...there is such a's called the popular "culture" of America...


MTV and all its ilk need to die horribly by contracting every infectious disease known to man, suffering horribly for months, and then spontaneously combusting in an orgy of inanity.

I watched ttv a bit until they had some dumbass rap segment.

Just wanted to let more people know... the link has been updated with DivX versions of the main segment and the second, "Q&A" segment... which was really just two questions.

I'd like to thank "Brodo" for the two DivX clips. I had disconnected the hardware from my capture device so didn't get the second segment.

Also being posted is a MPEG/VCD version. It should be available for download soon. Thanks go to "Lady Saria" for that!

And thanks to everyone for the praise... I may not like G4TechTV, but I'll help out the Fark community anytime!

The show turned to crap and the poor man lost his opportunity to give them hell for a 2 minute, 4 post, (down from 10 apparetnly) count down on this year's Fark favorites... Bleh. I feel so dirty now.

Just flushed the dignity.

ZD/Tech started to tank after the NASDAQ swallowed one too many `tulips'.
Knew the end was near when SS started with the studio audiences.
G4 is one long, exceedingly bad example of product placement schemes.

/So Drew was interviewed for a full half-hour by Dvorak?

Well-played, ckelley. Thanks for the good citizenship. :)

On another note, I resent the name of that Channel. 'Tech' implies well, news about technology, which, sadly, I do not see. 'G4' reminds me of Apple, and the fact those two characters represent a decent processor, and G4TechTV well... they suck. There.

Oh yeah, I used to like video games before they were cool.

Watch G4? No thanks.

They pissed away any reason I would have had to watch their station when they ruined everything I liked about TechTV.

There's no result on GIS that displays accurately the ripping of the soul that G4 has performed.
2004-12-18 10:29:10 AM  
G4 has done the impossible, in that it both sucks AND blows all at the same time. They've taken The Screen Savers and turned it into a Gap commercial, with emaciated supermodels hanging around acting cool and sneaking in product placement with G4's usual lack of subtlety ("Look, Kevin! I just got an IPOD, made by Apple and HP! Isn't that cool? Now I'm hungry... I think I'll have some PRINGLES! Once you pop, you can't stop!").

Heaven forbid that they have anyone on the set who actually LOOKS like they eat Pringles... if they won't blow away in a strong wind, they're not allowed anywhere near the studio. I hate what G4 has done to TechTV. I wish they'd just change the name to just G4 like they've been planning on doing since the acquisition, so I can feel absolutely no guilt when I ignore their vapid hosts and constant plugs for Snickers and Coca-Cola.
