So I bet you’re wondering, what exactly is ASSCII and how is it different than ASCII? Well, let’s start with the definition of ASCII. You may not have heard of it, but I promise you’ve seen it before.
Here’s the definition:
Acronym for the American Standard Code for Information Interchange. Pronounced ask-ee, ASCII is a code for representing English characters as numbers, with each letter assigned a number from 0 to 127. For example, the ASCII code for uppercase M is 77.
Now, I bet you’re asking yourself, what the hell does that have to do with anything? I came here for the sexy women!
Fear not, my friend, because I’m about to deliver some hot, hot, ASSCII action. If you haven’t figured it out already, that’s the awesome version of ASCII.
ASSCII – What The…
You may have to use your imagination for this one (well, not really…), but look closely… deeper and deeper, way down. Don’t be afraid to cross your eyes if you need to, just like those funny mind puzzle… drawing… things.
Is it odd that I’m slightly turned on?
Right, so let me actually explain now. Someone created a website that loads in a random adult video and converts it to ASCII art, aka, ASSCII.
The website is called:
ASSCII — (seems it’s no longer online)
If you’re extremely bored, or want to test the limits of what you can crank one off to, then fire up the page and start… decyphering? Some of the images are pretty difficult to see, but if you refresh enough, eventually you’ll find a video with “good enough” contrast for this wonderful conversion system.
I’ve said this many times before, but this time I really mean it: I’ve never seen anything quite like this. It’s hours of entertainment, and arguably – unlike much of my other work – extremely artistic.
