Poor Excuse - 2009-01-27

Jesus Poopskin, that's tasteless even by your moulting feces standards.

Someone should definitely add some songsmith to the sound of those waves crashing though.

Ok, that's awesome. 5 is for the sea, though. She's a fickle mistress.

jangbones - 2009-01-27

It would blow if you wanted to run out to get a bottle of milk when the tide was up. You'd need at least a couple of wind breakers.

HURF BLURF DUH - 2009-01-27

Months and months of mind-destroying tedium broken up by short bursts of sheer terror.

Udderdude - 2009-01-27

Sounds like a pretty typical tech-related job.

pastorofmuppets - 2009-01-30

Christ I wish that wasn't so absolutely true.

Old_Zircon - 2013-01-27

In my experience they're more like "Months and months of mind-destroying tedium broken up by short bursts of mind-destroying tedium."

Old_Zircon - 2013-01-27

The closest thing to "terror" I've experienced in a tech job was the brief window between learning I was about to be laid off and the elation of realizing that meant I didn't have a tech job any more.

Aelric - 2013-01-27

Pretty sure I've heard that line before.

Architeuthis Tux - 2009-01-27

There is something wrong with me.

I want to live in one of those, for like half a year.

Then I could be fed up with it and leave forever and talk about how I hated living there except for when the tide was angry and I could feel the hatred of tidal pull through my whole body, my flesh made an instrument by sound.

I'd be reminded often when a truck goes by or a jet. That white noise vibration, the rumble.

Aw hell.

Godard's Drinking Problem - 2009-01-27

That was almost as beautiful as the tidal wave

SenilePlacebo - 2009-01-27

Actually, yes.

I want to marry a light house keeper
and keep him company

I want to marry a light house keeper
and live by the side of the sea

I'll polish his lamp by the light of day
so ships at night can find their way

I wanna marry a light house keeper
won't that be okay

we'll take walks along the moonlit bay
maybe find a treasure too

i'd love living in a light house
how 'bout you?

dream of livin in a light house baby
every single day

i dream of living in a light house
a white one by the bay

so if you want to make my dreams come true
who'd be a light house keeper or do

we could live in a light house
the white one by the bay

won't that be okay

Cena_mark - 2009-01-27

Those lighthouses may be French, but they don't surrender to the waves.

Billy the Poet - 2009-01-28

Do you know which country owes its existence to French military prowess?

Yours, you dimwitted chickenhawk.

allcaps - 2009-01-31

I laughed a lot, cena_mark. Good show.

Cap'n Profan!ty - 2009-01-27

what i wanna know is, who the fuck is holding the camera?

Chancho - 2009-01-27

Old-testament God, and he is angry

Diogenes - 2009-01-27

It needs an angry grief-ridden man in an oilskin jacket and sou'wester screaming at the pitiless sea-bitch that took his son. He lets out a primal snarl as he sobs and attempts to beat back the waves with his bare fists.

Architeuthis Tux - 2009-01-27

When the dark comes he sits inside lit only by the moon through the shoreward windows. He sits at the table cut by dinner knives and boredom, and he knows that the worst of it is that once again, he's going to eat boiled triffids.

Mike Jordan - 2009-01-27

Best use of lighthouses since Thomas Kinkade!

SenilePlacebo - 2009-01-27

Beautiful, yes. Breathtaking... almost. But as I was about to rate, I was left with the ethical question: But, is this evil?

And I came to the conclusion that, in fact, the music is evil. Not because I dislike Mozart's Requiem, not at all, especially as directed by Christopher Hogwood, as, I believe, it happens to be in this particular case. No, what really froths my goat (which was gotten many a season ago) is that any time anybody wants to set any video to dramatic and sublime music, they automatically default on Mozart's Requiem. Which equates it less to the sublime and more to that of a withered, loose and cum besmirched whore of ample use. Anyway, I turned off the sound and had Nine Inch Nails' Ghosts playing in the background which actually worked out very nicely. So lack of imagination = 5 stars of evil.

Phil - 2009-01-27

So you complain about Mozart showing lack of imagination, and bust out with Nine Inch Nails?

SenilePlacebo - 2009-01-27

Why, Phil... I am very glad you stated that as a question, because the answer is no. As I explicitly said, I love Mozart, especially the Requiem, especially this version. Let me spell it out to you in simple language: I hate the fact that it is overused. The lack of imagination is on the part of the people who use it too often, turning it more into an advert ditty than the sublime piece of work it is. And fer yer info... I am no regular fan of NIN, but Ghosts is Trent Reznor actually just playing with his rather formidable skills as a music producer and was not meant to appeal to the masses that Reznor generally tends to milk for all they are worth (despite the fact that every NIN album has exceptional sound production, which I appreciate).

Camonk - 2009-01-28

Oh god please just shut up. I imagine you sitting at the computer with your black turtleneck and beret and orange pince nez sunglasses every single goddamned day just waiting to pontificate. Then, when no one gives you the chance you just generate one and type and type and type, spidery little nicotine-stained fingers with a fucking THUMB RING on each hand just blurring as you rush to state your faggy opinion. Fuck, dude.

SenilePlacebo - 2009-01-28

In all fairness, my comment is actually really annoying and it irritates me to re-read it. In further fairness, your comment was funny and appropriate to one who would normally write such crap as I did. I was in a weird mood yesterday. Meh.

Repomancer - 2009-01-27

It would have been more effective without the soundtrack.

Despite the description and some of the comments, these are not tidal waves by any definition. High tide and heavy surf, certainly, but that's not the same thing at all.

Still, gorgeous footage of Mother Nature in all her awesome fury.

glasseye - 2009-01-27

Yep, definitely NOT tidal waves. Just a little bit of heavy surf.

I've been to a couple of places in this video. It's very similar to the Oregon coast, but with history and better food.

wikipedia may mostly be rubbish, but here it is worth quoting:

"Ar Men is one of the best known lighthouses because of its isolated situation and the considerable difficulties its construction has presented, and the danger in evacuating its personnel. In the small world of lighthouses in the sea, notably Kéréon, La Vieille or La Jument, this one is without doubt the most mythical one. Considered as one of the most challenging workplaces by the community of lighthouse keepers, it has been named "The Hell of Hells"......"

dododge - 2009-02-01

According to another site about the construction process:

"built on a rock which emerges to a height of just 1.50 meters at low tide, right in the middle of the Raz de Sein. When time allowed, the construction workers drilled a hole for the future anchoring bars. Throughout the whole of the year 1870, they could only work for 8 hours and for 6 hours in 1873. The construction of Armen was to take 14 years."

ProfessorChaos - 2009-01-28

That is one tough lighthouse.

Memento - 2009-01-28

Professor August: Look at that lighthouse. That's the ultimate expression of phallocentric technocracy violating Mother Sky.

Marge: I thought they were just tall so boats could see them.

Professor August: No Marge. Everything penis-shaped is bad.

rroach - 2009-02-16

What I find most interesting is that a bunch of Internet geeks identify so strongly with lighthouses and lighthouse keepers.

Mister Yuck - 2009-05-09

We want better rooms to sit alone and type in.

bopeton - 2009-05-19

Human ingenuity. Five stars for that, always.

Most obscure fetish ever.
