This 30-second short shows everything wrong with computers

If you haven’t been following the YouTube career of Nicholas Gurewitch, best known as the artist behind whimsically morbid webcomic The Perry Bible Fellowship, you owe it to yourself to catch up. (If you haven’t read The Perry Bible Fellowship, say goodbye to the rest of your day.)

One of Gurewitch’s latest offerings under the Big Play Films brand is titled “Peter’s Computer,” and it’s just the blend of simple and surreal we’ve come to expect from him. In 30 seconds, he captures some hidden, hilarious truth about PCs and our wary relationship with them.

You know, I think Peter’s going to find he’s a lot happier with that uncluttered desktop.
