Or a box of Tagalogs.

I gave it another try to try and help Drew out.

Why does the new blonde girl keep sneering? The delivery is better than the "oh God someone put me in front of a camera! Noooo" guy they had previously but... the delivery is still lacking. It's still hovering somewhere around high school kids playing around with a video camera and a video editing program. There's still a lot of split-second camera cuts and I kept getting distracted by the woman's right side of her face sneering randomly. Is it a twitch?

I appreciate that you're trying to do something different with Fark but... it reminds me of high school kids (or first year film students) trying to copy The Soup.

Soon Thin Mints will be sold out the back of Armored trucks, Tagalongs will be guarded by Armed Security and Samoas will be locked in Vaults


How will you guard your stash man, cause y ou know the horde, they're going to come for em

Anticipating a War Games like conclusion to this thread, allow me to fast-forward through the discussions of WTFark's baby steps and sidebar the occasional "compare/contrast reddit and Fark."

Fark reddit. How anyone can read that illegible gobbledy-gook, I don't understand. The comments on Fark are the best part.  So Fark wins, with or without video content.  Fark superior.  Reddit inferior. The end.

I liked it. And funnily enough, the first thing I did NOT think about when view the video was that the girl was too skinny.

Quick show of hands, who here needs to see a video where they talk about an actual news story that we all could have clicked on and read for ourselves?
 
2014-02-05 03:44:09 PM  
The other issue again is that Fark itself isn't funny. The people who use it are. You wouldn't expect a comedy club owner and the wait staff to do good stand up, would you?

I was in the theatre to see the Hulk (2003) movie the day it came out. We'd just gotten into our seats when this local tv  news crew comes in. (Producer, Cameraperson, assistant). The producer goes up to the front, claps her hands and tells us that we're going to help each other out. She needs a minute or two of footage of really really excited people who are chomping at the bit to see this movie and in exchange we'll get free stuff.  So people did Hulk impressions, did the wave, cheered, hammed it up etc.

That's what this woman's delivery reminds me of. Someone put in front of a camera and told to "act wacky!"

I'd murder for Somoans, but 4.50 a box? Wally world knock offs are 2 bucks a box. And to the cries of "You're forcing us to raise money other ways" is the same to me as the tobacco industry claiming I'm denying them income. All I have to say is "Waaaa!"

2014-02-05 04:16:49 PM  
Constructive criticism:

• I got that the other ones were trying to do, highlighting Farker comments about a story, but this one doesn't even do that. This is just "there was a funny story in the news, and we did a 'recreation' of it." That's not really funny, or clever, or anything really. What was the goal of this one?

• The "recreation" itself was a one-joke concept, based on an extremely shopworn and cliched "Taxi Driver" clip. It is as lazy an idea as I could possibly imagine. If this is what "Fark" is supposed to be like, I would assume it's full of people spouting out of date catchphrases and extremely obvious, uncreative "jokes." If I saw that clip on something like Conan, I'd assume that the joke was "here was a comedy writer who just gave up on trying to be funny."

• I agree with the poster above that the host had a weirdly transfixing way of speaking out of the side of her mouth. No offense to her -- she was perfectly understandable -- but it was distracting.

• Enough with the jump cuts and pans in front of a green screen. These crappy production effects will date videos like this as emblematic of the '00s, as much as star wipes and fuzzy black-and-white slow-motion invariably dates things to the '80s. Save the money you spend on close-up reshoots and editing time and use it to pay for an actual set.

Yeah that's my last WTFark episode as well. I appreciate that they were willing to try something new but it's just not working. Every WTFark thread I've seen I'd say 90%+ of the comments can be boiled down to "That was awful. Please no more". There's nothing wrong with trying something new but sometimes you have to shelf an idea because as good as it was in your head it's just not working.

CSB:

There's a local game shop here that I hang out in sometimes and one day this I'd say 19 ish year old kid (with his arm in a cast) comes in proclaiming that he's got a fantastic new idea and is going to make a billion dollars. The idea? D20 Skateboarding: The Game! Yes, with level ups (up to level 20) and everything. He got people to test it out and everyone gave him the same basic feedback. "This is terrible. Please no more". So he'd go home, tweak a few things, add/remove a few rules and come back the next day with his new version which is SOOOO much better etc. He'd get a lot of the same feedback and the cycle would repeat again.

Eventually he did shelve the idea (after getting to something like version 7 or 8 .1 revision at a time). Mostly because his arm healed up and he could skateboard again. Once he could skateboard again he realized how bad his paper version was and shelved it himself.

Like I said, I appreciate that they're trying something new but WTFark is terrible. The longer it goes on the worse it makes Fark itself look. Please, put it out to pasture.
