cliffyb is an idiot

i follow him on twitter just for cheap laughs. he regularly
produces gems of colossal stupidity:

Always said this, but, seriously, @elonmusk, why are
brake lights digital when they should be analog?

It drives me nuts and it makes no sense. If you slam on the
brakes people can't tell. If you tap them, they assume the
same.

--cliffyb

well, uh... maybe because that would make them hard to see
in the daytime? maybe because people would start to ignore
"softer" brake lights and be more likely to rear-end
someone? maybe because they tried this idea in the 70s, with
brake lights that blinked at a rate proportional to the
brake amount, and people fucking hated it even more than
they hate obnoxiously animated turn signals? fact: they
called it: "cyber brakes" or something, i shit you not.
cyber was as trendy as e-whatever was in the 90s and
iWhatever was in the 00's

but he also has his humble, introspective moments:

More importantly I'm becoming exponentially more self
aware, and caring about what really matters. Friends and
family and experiences over "things."


--cliffyb

in summary, well, i'll let something awful summarize:

he's pretty much richard patrick except he designed levels
for late 90s video games instead of having a sparse string
of hits

seriously homoerotic, muscle steroid Übermensch running
around penetrating each other with sharp objects

just read some of his tweets he seems to have the mental age
of a 15 year old

well, hey, cliffyb designed the levels to jazz jackrabbit, i
think, and that's where my avatar is from. then he also
worked on the original unreal tournament, and, there, also
good work.

around this point, the internet, and forums started to be a
thing. i recall he started some site "catscan" where people
would scan a cat that had fallen asleep on the scanner. he
blathered extensively on the site, was actually rather
entertaining, but this was, i feel, ground zero for people
hearing from him directly for the first time, and, well,
he's a tit. am i using that word right? i had trouble
picking one, so i went british

in any case, people kind of knew him from the games, but at
that point he began to garner a reputation as a bit of a
tit. something awful caught wind of it and he became a
recurring queer dandy in many of their flash cartoons. i
forgot about him for a few years, and, hey, there he is on
twitter, more or less unchanged

duuude

if you separate the art from, ahem, the artist, he's been a
reliably solid level designer for decades. however, this is
not why one would follow him on twitter

RIP to one of the GREATEST concept artists and
visionaries to ever exist, Syd Mead. You inspired SO many
generations of creatives, and it was an honor to see you
speak once. The bit about the Sultan of Brunei's plane was
AMAZING.

This is one of those one that hurts.


--cliffyb

literally 50% generic praise, 50% playing up his single
brief association with the departed

mildly irritating, you probably wouldn't want to have a pint
down the pub with him

LAZY_TITLE this article is lol

Bleszinski drove into Epic’s parking lot in a red
Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, the top down despite an
impending rainstorm. His current haircut is short and
cowlicked, his bangs twirled up into a tiny moussed horn. He
was wearing what in my high school would have been called
“exchange-student jeans”—obviously expensive but
slightly the wrong color and of a somehow non-American cut.
Beneath a tight, fashionably out-of-style black nylon jacket
was a T-shirt that read “TECHNOLOGY!” His sunglasses
were of the oversized, county-sheriff variety, and each of
his earlobes held a small, bright diamond earring. He could
have been either a boyish Dolce & Gabbana model or a
small-town weed dealer.

this goes directly back to my richard patrick analogy. in,
like, 2010 or something, filter was opening for chevele, and
chevele was opening up for bush, who would obviously play
"machine head" at some point

anyways, i'm going because my mates wanted to, i don't even
have to drive or figure out tickets, why not. we naturally
establish a moderate pocket of real estate by the bar and
wait for things to start

richard patrick takes the stage. "hey, boston, i bet you've
never seen this before!" and then he proceeds to mash a
power drill against his guitar for droning effects

i remember thinking: why, yes, richard, i have seen this
before. i saw this almost ten years ago, when some guy on
ICQ sent me his song in which he'd used a power drill for
drones. dave navarro used a vibrator on a red hot chili
peppers song, for chrissake

anyways, eventually, filter is over, and richard patrick
shows up at the end of the bar. he starts shaking hands,
working his way down towards us. shit, shit. i think.
i don't want to talk to him. he'd be all "hey, was the power
drill cool or what?" and i just might throw my drink at him

thankfully, he found enough fan sunlight that his progress
down the bar halted a mere two or three chaps away

but, you know, "hey man nice shot" is a good song and i can
enjoy it still despite all this

cliffyb has at least continued to make successful things,
i'll cop to going a bit far comparing him to richard
patrick. but, you know, the vector has the same heading but
for a lesser magnitude

brother of terminator 2 guy isn't he

friend of a friend who was visiting for the concert passed
out on the living room floor next to our vinyl collection as
UAE plays. typical reaction to a filter concert, really
