…or whatever the fuck they call themselves. Gentlemen, let me start a discussion with you all in the attempts to find your opinions about the people who use Youtube as it should have been used (I’m assuming), and that is to make a myspacey type of site, but with video. Thus you see people like this guy (who apparently is at the forefront of vlogger popularity, meanwhile I find him fucking pretentious). Lil’ linkerooni
Then, you’ve got people the guy in this video response… Link swallowing whore
I don’t mean to frontload this topic with a bias, but my response is that this puts a whole new perspective of awkward-to-watch emo shit to the myspace world already saturated with said attributes.
Aaaaand begin..December 2, 2006 at 5:41 pm #9219djohnsonParticipant
I really don’t think that YouTube was ever intended to be used in that manner. In fact, that shit is just sick and wrong…Especially the second link there….wow!December 2, 2006 at 7:17 pm #9226
It’s unbelievable. I mean, it’s people… Just talking!… Like, into shit! It’s not a podcast. It doesn’t spare you one of your five senses so you can do it while multi-tasking. They don’t make videos that would be considered “an effort to produce a short product for your entertainment”. They’re not even bizarre or disturbing videos content-wise. Instead the creepiness is that it’s just people, in that really creepy perspective of “you’re the monitor staring at them slouched in front of the computer” (am I the only one who finds that angle creepy? If I had a mirror here, I swear I wouldn’t spend more than two minutes a day on my computer) and they just talk about their feelings. It’s like evesdropping on a phone conversation but more boring. I must search deeper into this subculture and find out more.
I have nothing wrong to say about the people who actually make videos with content, writing, and some kind of production… but these… it’s just people… Uuuuuuhewwww.December 2, 2006 at 8:48 pm #9216
I get what you’re saying about the first guy and using the site as a “dear video diary”, it’s contrived and boring, and ultimately pointless, but that second dude is awesome. When he starts singing I’m thinking, “holy crap, he’s singing now”, and the way the video ends with that laugh is magnificent. Comedically it’s nicely constructed, either intentionally or not. The pacing and tone seems too perfect for it to be the product of a genuine retard. Although that could be because I am part retard.

Speaking of retards, some bitch writes me on myspace talking about, “Can you please take down the picture of the retarded kids?” (I’m paraphrasing here), but yeah, some random writes about how her brother has Down Syndrome and it’s offensive to her that I “made fun of them”. What it was, was a completely absurd joke I came up with about retards in general and wrote it on my site with a little photo for flavor. So I write back saying, “Look, you see something like my post and becoming so blindly offended that you’ve got to write a letter says to me that you’re the one judging your brother as being insufficient”. Stupid ho. So now I’m having problems with my site and I’m trying not to say it’s that dummies fault.
Oh, and yeah! That first guy is fucking pretentious! I saw a couple more of his posts. Fuuuuck people!December 2, 2006 at 11:25 pm #9230IvanParticipant

Christ, a friend of mine one day thought it would be swell to send me fifty links to David Hasselhoff’s videos. Those are nightmare inducing.December 3, 2006 at 12:23 am #9215
Yeah Scatt, I hate those self-righteous asswipes that take one small element of something you’ve done, use it out of context, and turn it against you. I mean, you want to have sympathy for someone who’s sticking up for a family member, but so many losers just go around looking for shit to be offended by. As if it validates their own character by always deluding themselves that they’ve found some more moral fucking highground to stand on and wave their fingers at us when in the real world they aren’t on any highground at all. They’re actually standing knee deep in the excrement of their own ignorance!!! Pity the fools. Fuck those people!Scatt wrote:Christ, a friend of mine one day thought it would be swell to send me fifty links to David Hasselhoff’s videos. Those are nightmare inducing.
I’ll take those links off your hands buddy. Not to watch or anything, hahaha, I don’t have David Hasselhoff actions figures, t-shirts and wigs or anything David Hasselhoff related like a lifesize cardboard cutout in every room of my house, Hasselhoff wallpaper and duvet and pillowslips and backed up files of every second of footage of him ever comitted to celluloid or anything like that. Cause that’d be ridiculous. I mean, what do you take me for? I just … you know … I know a good to place to dispose of those things.
(I also don’t have a custom Hasselhoff version of the real doll specially imported from Germany so get off my back.)

Fuck it, I’ll post what the email said and what I wrote back, because I got another response after that actually said, “k wats with the tude?”, so obviously I’m battling a mastermind. But seriously, I was thinking, “You WERE offended! Now you’re acting like you only meant you could have been offended? Piss off!” So here’s what it was:
Weirdo:Quote:the thing about people with down syndrom(DS) on your horsedrownings.com is really rude. you shouldn’t be making fun of people like that. if you ever have kids, you will feel like shit if they have DS. can you please take it off? people like me find that offensive for two reasons:
– My little brother has DS
– and it is not right to make fun of people
Me:Quote:“the thing about people with down syndrom(DS) on your horsedrownings.com is really rude.”
Perhaps from your perspective, but not from my own.
“You shouldn’t be making fun of people like that. if you ever have kids, you will feel like shit if they have DS.”
No I wouldn’t. Also, it’s rude of you to assume you know a stranger’s business.
“can you please take it off?”
“people like me find that offensive for two reasons:
– My little brother has DS
– and it is not right to make fun of people “
Good for you for choosing to be an overly sensitive and overly judgemental person. I’d say that when you see something like my post and are that quick to write an offended letter, it’s actually you judging your brother as insufficient. What’s on my site is just an absurd joke for those who choose to enjoy it. You didn’t like it. Too bad.
Weirdo:Quote:k, wats the tude about? i only was telling you, that it could be seen as rude. also, i asked bout the horse drowning thing. i dont get it? wat does it mean?

Okay, the second video — I couldn’t stop staring at the bump on his forehead. Maybe it’s because I had one on my forehead a few weeks ago, but damn!December 3, 2006 at 2:59 am #9222
I noticed that lump, too. Perhaps what gave him the lump was also what, you know… made him mentally perplexed?December 3, 2006 at 6:55 am #9217robParticipant

The guy with the little linkerooni (he’s gotta hate that). Well, his charisma seems a little forced and he is hard to watch (when you find yourself watching the cat in the background that means the guy in the foreground is boring you).
The response guy is either a genius with a joke or a lonely sad little fellow that probably has more porn on his computer than me, Rob, Frank, Octavious, and Bucho combined.
You tube is only entertaining when the people in the videos are not taking it seriously. Its those “people with a statement” that tend to ruin it. I guess the first guys statement was “I’m gay and don’t want to admit it yet” and the second guys statement was “I like cheese”
You Tube needs more porn in my opinion.December 4, 2006 at 5:45 pm #9220OctaviousParticipant
I agree with Bing on more porn on youtube.
But look at that guy’s room. Fuckin clean it up!December 4, 2006 at 8:41 pm #9214
Yeah, it’s almost as if someone needs to invent pornotube. Almost.
