DO NOT CLICK THIS. THIS IS A VIRUS.
It should already be common sense that you shouldn’t click on a video link from someone you don’t recognize, but I thought the rest of you should know! This thing will really mess up your tumblr, so please don’t click it!!
I gather that the guy took a lot of either inspiration or just ideas from Le Reddit Video, so it wasn’t surprising to see you pop up after others like Kate Beaton and my LE picture.
It’s a good listen and Vaati is a pretty well educated fellow when it comes to these matters. I’m glad I left this sort of thing in good hands to others who were much more skilled than I was.
a good video that definitely hits all of the points on why most meme usage drives me up the fucking wall
This video pretty much immediately hits the big reason why widespread internet memes are so painfully obnoxious, and it’s the simple fact that most memes essentially boil down to “REFERENCE TO INITIALLY HUMOROUS THING”
The problem is that references ARE NOT FUNNY BY THEMSELVES
Trying to use a meme alone as a joke is kind of like trying to serve ketchup by itself. You CAN do it, but it makes you look like a tremendous, tasteless asshole.
Even if it IS used in a humorous context, if it’s overused, then it will still become less enjoyable and more obnoxious as time goes on, again, much like if you served every single meal with a big glob of ketchup.
Basically, what I’m saying is ketchup is fucking awful.
It’s so incredibly awkward when someone gets the idea that you’re internet savvy, so they’ll spout memes at you thinking it’s a tie that bonds and…and…they look at you with this enthusiastic, expectant face and you can’t even pretend to be amused by it.
“I am amazed I have any fans at all! It makes me feel so good to know that I do. It makes me feel really good inside to know that there are some people out there who seem to understand me in some ways even though they don’t know me in the flesh.”
I don’t really have a lot of “celebrity crushes” per se, nor do I really find myself fixating on the beauty of any well known individuals in general, but I do think Liv Tyler is pretty and I really like her look.
As most of my followers know, I just found out three days ago that my mother is dying; late-stage pancreatic-cancer. After just making a cross-country move, I can’t afford to fly back out right now. I need some help. I know times are rough for everyone, but even if you can’t afford a commission- please give me a signal-boost.
At this rate, I know I may not make enough to make it out there before she passes. I’m still trying to reconcile with that fact; but I want to at least be there for her funeral— and figure out what’s going to happen to our pets, as she’s been keeping my dog and cat for me.
I ask a lot of my followers, and I’m sorry to— but if you could please throw this around on the web for me, I’d appreciate it.
