SixteCycle On-Line Music Store, submitted by CC. This is bar-none the most confusing, busy, and frustratingly slow e-commerce site I have ever seen. Overflowing with idiotic and pointless Flash widgets accompanying jumbled lists of products, SixteCycle makes shopping the opposite of both fun and convenient.
I don't have the slightest idea where the fuck I am supposed to even start on this page. I think, I'm not sure, they are selling products related to making music, like maybe cymbal stands or something, but there are like ten lists of buttons, all color coded for me to choose from. It might help if I knew the name of some manufacturers, but I don't know what's product, what's manufacturer, for all I know all of those are TYPES of instruments or new techno-trancecore-grindhouse bands or something.
Take special note of the suck-o-meter jammed between several lists of items. I initially thought this was a slider that you could move around to let them know how shitty and overly complicated their dumb site is, but alas, it just tells you how fast their server is loading these obese Flash pages. I'm sure there are times when their server is completely overwhelmed with all of the people clammoring to have a nervous breakdown trying to figure out how to return to the previous menu without exiting the site.
Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
