Helm: What sort of program does one use to open an .ogg file?

I know I am not Helm but I am answering anyways: Winamp, xmplay, foobar and deliplayer are the ones I have used that can play ogg files. The only one I know that can't play .ogg files is Windows Media Player.

I use winamp.

Faktablad: I like your song lots. Reminds me of Tortoise, but not overbearingly so. I keep wanting to hear a wandering bassline though. Good production skill and compositionally robust! Post more please.

You *can* actually use Windows media player to open a .ogg file if you want. Check out the illiminable codecs.

That fails at being funny, it does not even register as proper nonsense in my brain (me loves nonsense).
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

i dunno, most comics on the web are either overbearing nonsense thats just too obnoxious to be funny or just insist on spelling out the humour as if youre retarded. (see)
infact, I got the idea from another comic:

obviously not-funny as the dude insists on making it crystal clear at how confused he is, when I saw it, I thought it needed more subtlety and to perhaps expand on the idea to make it a bit better

my main goal was not for it to appear obnoxious or pretentious, which I think was reached

Well, it's not obnoxious or pretentious, but it's not funny either.

If it where a monkey driving the car, it would at least be remotely funny. Monkeys are a cheap way to make anything funny.

A stop sign saying "go" is ironic. If the stop sign could somehow emote expression it might work better, especially since the sign is obviously sadistic. I found the idea amusing, but it just shows that humor tends not to be universal.
