  1. "Hover text"? What is this revolting shit? It's alt-text. Alt-text, God damn it. Not fucking hover text.

    I am so fucking pissed off. You deserve to die. You are going to die. This shit can't stand.

    1. That's what Randall calls it, in real life I mean. I did extensive research for this story, and wrote Randall as true to life as I could make him.

  2. Maybe I'm the first person here to say it but I find Jon Levi really boring. I have started reading hundreds of his encyclicals of various lengths and probably finished a dozen throughout my life, not including Chris Houlihan's Room.

    I find it hard to pick up Jon Levi without immediately engaging a mindset of, "Here's a consumable that some guy has produced to deal with size inadequacy vis-à-vis Rob and/or express the emotional scars of brit milah. What comfortable fantasy is he creating to enable this?" And that's how my whole reading experience goes. Jon Levi makes no point well which can't be better made by reading the Talmud. He takes me nowhere without giving me the uncomfortable sense that someone thinks this is where I am supposed to need to be in order to see something false or escape something true. Jon Levi idealises; he romanticises; he preaches. He falls asleep and he dreams. He is a selfish journey away from milk.

    The world already has enough that is beautiful and that is abhorrent - and goyim are far more challenging to confront. Hyphen has always seemed like the easy way out.

    1. When in Hyphen, do as the Romans do.

      Innit?

  6. Oh God, 1311 was so bad. Just a grab-bag of old quotes chosen at random and posted without any sort of commentary or mediation. And why the fuck would he make the alt-text be a quote that's longer than any of the ones in the main comic? What was he thinking?!

  8. Oh god, I'm realizing that checking this blog was part of my college routine. You've ruined me.... I can't go on without you, Jon Levi! Hating XKCD just isn't the same without you! Whenever I see a godawful stick figure from that godawful comic, I think to myself, "Jon Levi will have something to saw about this!". That thought was the only thing keeping me sane. Without any form of feedback that other people similarly find nearly every new XKCD revolting and disgusting... I may lose all hope for humanity...

    This blog was the last voice, shouting against mob rule and chaos. Against insanity and stupidity.

    Independent thought has been dying on the internet. This blog was the last bastion of it. Soon there will be no "I". We will all be trained from birth to love Randall, because our parents will teach our children that XKCD is what is funny. Dissent will be stamped out until we all think alike. The only thoughts transmitted to one another will be "LOL check out the latest XKCD".... over and over and over again. Randall will one day die, content knowing that he has written some godawful script on a godawful computer, carefully programmed, using some godawful language that was meant to be 'quirky', to churn out a godawful comic every Monday Wednesday Friday, like the ticking of some fucking shitty clock. The clock will keep counting these beats, every three marking our planet one week closer to our now deserved annihilation.

    The only solace I can take now, is that hopefully, one day, XKCD will be gone forever. That the earth will be consumed by the sun, and XKCD will cease to exist. So will humanity, but that is a fair justice to pay for being the species responsible for this abomination. However, I fear even this hope is in vain. I fear it is only a matter of time before someone sends some XKCD comic to space. Then, XKCD may last until the heat death of the universe. This thought truly saddens me.

    1. You know what? I WILL write more reviews. Never mind the fact that the next few months will make or break my university degree, and I'll need every hour of time for study that I can get. I WILL write those reviews, just for you Anon 6:54. Just don't expect three comics a week on a regular basis. That routine was driving me mad.

      And because I like you so much, I will let you pick an Xkcd from the archive, one that I haven't reviewed yet. And I will review it for you next.

    2. I find it disgusting that someone would take away time from an honourable and spiritually uplifting activity such as lambasting xkcd in order to worry about selfish, worldly, ephemeral concerns such as "my degree". Don't worry about your life - worry about your duty. I thought your priorities were better than this, Jon.

    3. Staving off the inevitable death march that is XKCD is indeed a noble pursuit, and I think I may once again allow myself to feel some glimmer of hope for mankind, thanks to Jon Levi's concern for the greater good. I am tempted to request you review the pretentious excuse for a comic known only as "time" ie. 1190, and its seemingly near endless waste of its titular subject not only presumably for the author, but also for the unfortunate readers, without any attempt at humor or cleverness (I am under the impression that its updates have, in fact, finally ceased inflicting themselves upon the people of the net). I can, however, empathize (as I possess some understanding of other human beings, unlike XKCD's author) with the situation of Jon Levi, and as such, will suggest a more current comic. I therefore suggest the comic which it is no exaggeration to say literally ruined my family's otherwise pleasant holiday, with its baffling inconsistency and lack of humor: 1308: Christmas Lights.

    4. I have actually been wanting to review Time for a while, I just wanted to wait until my blog had amassed more viewers. :(

      I'll probably do it at some point before I release Died in a Blogging Accident, because no one will take me seriously after that.
