this may be of some local interest
Been a while since I've seen a good ole-fashioned GIF thread. As first to act, I will raise:
After reading about the 19th commenter who isn't sure what the Game... Blouses meme is all about, I'm making this thread trying to make it as easy as possible to find.
One sketch on the Dave Chappelle show was called "Dave's Epic Stories", one of which centered around Charlie Murphy's basketball game against Prince (yes, that Prince). Anyway, the whole sketch is below (with an annoying watermark) and is hilarious. In any event, watch the first clip, then look at the GIF of Stauskas. Plus "blouses" sounds like Stauskas"

Whole Sketch: (fast forward to about 4:25 for the dunk)
Stauskas GIF courtesy of Ace:
So, in the post The Lamentation Of Their Women, Ace created a few gifs of some of the plays. As someone who reads the blog at a company where they block youtube, these gifs definitely came in handy. It also helps that they are hosted by this site due to imgur gifs/flickr photos also being blocked (I miss a lot of the kttens and Lloyd Brady photos due to this). I really have no idea how long it takes to create these, but I would like to say to Brian and Ace that they are very much appreciated.
I was wondering if this will be something that we will see more of in future posts or if it was just a spur of the moment thing and if so, could we use the gif system a bit more. If they take too long then no big deal, but I just wanted to say that the effort was appreciated and I hope that it can continue. I realize videos and picture pages are very helpful, but hopefully gifs can be used some more as well.
Anybody else really like this new (maybe) addition?
Really bored on a Friday, and somewhat inspired by that epic Denard face when asked who would win in a race between he and Taylor Martinez. So I made an old NES version-style GIF, complete with glitches and all (actually accidental, but too lazy to go back and fix).
Happy weekend and here's to the BBBQ (the extra "B" is for BYOBB (that extra "B" is a typo)).
