Weird Cat and the Scary World of Animated GIFs
Tuesday/October/19 2010 Filed in: Philosophy / World View
What is it about animated gifs that makes them so strange and disturbingly compelling?
It's not just the freaky nature of the images themselves. There's something more about them that seems to eat away at some dark and hidden part of our brain in a maddening way.
Maybe it's the repetition that may suggest, in some very small way, what a person plagued with OCD must endure day in and day out.
Animated gifs seem to be a tiny portal through which we may peer into that which we might imagine hell to be, if there is indeed a hell.
But there is indeed something strange and very disturbingly compelling about animated gifs.
Don't you agree?
