No, I’m not gonna bail out this time. I’m gonna sit through the whole thing like the sucker for agony I am. It’s time to take a look at the lyrics of Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda”, a song that makes me hope that more mothers let their children listen to Nicki Minaj’s sexual, explicit lyrics on the basis that she’s such a nice role model or something. Because let me tell ya, “Anaconda” is her child-friendliest masterpiece yet.

There’s a version of this video that I like slightly more than the one above because it contains a random Mystery Science Theatre 3000 reference, which is awesome, but I decided not to share that one because I wanted to stay angry for the remainder of the commentary. It’s more fun that way.

In memory of Robin Williams

fucking fo iasljfåladja¨p

R.I.P Robin Williams, 1951-2014

I don’t really know what to say when it comes to the great comedic talent that Hollywood recently lost. However, I will share this video that Jeremy Jahns, a YouTube critic whom I avidly follow uploaded today, celebrating the genius that is no longer amongst us – Robin Williams. I think he says all the things that are on my mind by now, and for the record: he’s donating all the money he makes on this video to the “Anxiety and Depression Association of America”. So I definitely think you should give it a view or two, not only for dear Robin:

Also, because I posted this today, I have decided to wait with uploading my review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ’til tomorrow. So until then dear friends, take care of yourselves, and remember to always, ALWAYS be there for one another.

Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, “Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up.”
Man bursts into tears.
Says “But Doctor… I am Pagliacci.”
Watchmen 1986

OBLIGATORY HATE MAIL #11


Our first comment today is a by RipCake and it was actually posted to my PewDiePie sentence mix on YouTube. He writes:

RipCake
1 day ago:

If you hear me out, I can tell you that PewDiePie isn’t in for the money or a “Big Douche”. If you don’t want to… fine with me. So here’s the basic points of why people hate PewDiePie that I found on Reddit:

“Immaturity;
Screaming;
I don’t find him particulary funny;
He’s faking is reation too damn much;
Etc.”

Okay, the first one:

Example: PewDiePie makes a video of him acting immature.
He gets really good feedback on that video.
He makes more videos based on immaturity because his fans enjoy it.

Now, the second one:

Simple, turn down your volume, a really ignorant point.

the third one:

Well, if you don’t find him funny, then why do you hate him? Because he’s not funny?

Fourth and last one:

Sure, he may or may not fake his reaction, but he’s only doing it so that his fans can enjoy it. And if you think he’s in it for the money, he donates millions to charity. Millions, hate on that. I saw your blog about him here:

http://alienationmentale.wordpress.com/2012/07/24/recent-skype-conversation-only-increased-my-pewdiepie-irritation-further/ and I wanted to know, why do you hate him when he only tries to be funny? That was like the only thing you ranted in that blog. Please take this comment seriously, because the hatred you have for him doesn’t make sense, and I need a more valid reason for you to hate him.

Gracias for the analysis, Cake. Obviously, the reasons why people on Reddit don’t like him don’t necessarily have to be the same reasons I have, but let’s take a look at the ones you’ve argued against regardless.

Firstly, the fact that his fans like to watch him act like an idiot is obviously part of why he does it, but that doesn’t suddenly make it clever or funny. He could easily try to do something smarter with his videos but there are three possible reasons as to why he doesn’t:

  1. He doesn’t know how.
  2. He would rather pander to his excitable fanbase, ergo cash flow.
  3. All of the above

So it’s not just that he’s not funny – which appears to be the sole reason *I* have, according to you – but also that his gimmick is lazy and possibly just a way for him to make more easy money.

Also, I’m not sure how I’m supposed to alter the fact that PewDiePie has an annoying as fuck voice simply by turning down the volume on my computer. He still sounds like nails on a chalkboard and your idea of decreasing my speaker volume doesn’t do much to dispute that.

As for why I hate him because he’s not funny, I wouldn’t say I hate the person so much as I hate his channel. The man is uniquely unfunny and what I truly hate is his insipid excuse for comedy. When I say that I hate PewDiePie, I mean that I hate the persona that so many easily excitable tweens have decided to build up as some sort of comedic genius, even though his shtick amounts to nothing more than screaming profanities at his computer. However, I can tell from the fact that you’ve been to my blog that this reasoning isn’t enough to persuade you, even if the reality is that the post contains several other reasons as to why he’s not good. So now that I’ve reiterated those reasons for you, are you satisfied? If that’s not the case and you really just wanna hear a different one altogether, I feel no obligation to make up a whole new reason as to why I don’t like something on the mere basis that people are unsatisfied with the (multiple) reason(s) I’ve already given.

 And as for this whole money thing again, I don’t care how much money he donated to charity. It’s a noble thing to do yes, but:

  1. It doesn’t make his content any less unfunny.
  2. It’s usually not that big a percentage of his overall income.
  3. Didn’t this multi-millionaire ask his FANS to DONATE a bunch of charity money at one point?

In fact, I decided to do some research, as well as math, regarding the allegedly mind-blowing news that PewDiePie donated over $400,000 to a fundraising campaign for cleaning the waters of Rwanda. That’s an awesome thing to do, but there are two reasons I’m not amazed or astounded by this. The first reason is that PewDiePie ultimately donated 446 462 bucks and his estimated yearly income is about 4 million dollars, so out of all that money, the amount he’d be giving away is 11.16%. And that’s if you only count the 4 mil he makes in a year. Either way, it doesn’t matter, because the second reason I’m not all that amazed is that, as stated, all this money was apparently something he asked his fans to donate.

I’m not saying it’s not a nice thing to do. It is. I wish more people with fans did it. I’m just saying it isn’t as ground-breaking as it’s cracked up to be. Anyone can ask someone else to fund a country in Africa.

One of the things I looked forward to the most this summer, aside from graduating and going to Greece of course, was travelling to Dalhalla to see Kraftwerk live with my brother Oscar and my former classmate Simon Allinggård. We had been discussing it before graduating, Simon and I, and he finally arranged the tickets at the end of June when I finally got my driver’s license. Then, over a month later, it was time!
