It’s been a long time since I talked properly about YouTube’s favorite cuckold and very happy man Greg “Onision” Jackson. This is mainly due to the advice I’ve received from fans of his after writing about him, namely that I should just stop paying attention to the guy if I don’t like him, as if to say that hating Greg as a person would make me unable to enjoy watching his meltdowns on a monthly basis.
Anyhow, I did leave Gregory alone for a while after doing a quickie on him last year. I’m sad to say, however, that He Who Wins Debates Against Sock Puppets is at it again. When he’s not busy watching his wife get intimate with a teenage girl whom the wife later cheats on him with (polygamy works, guys), he’s apparently looking at fangirl-submitted selfies and telling the senders how “beautiful” or “disgustingly unhealthy” their half-naked bodies look. And as you may have guessed, it has been noted several times, more so in recent days than when he supposedly started the forum itself, that not all of these girls are of legal age. Uh-oh… bro.

Two million years ago, Ian Carter of iDubbbzTV gave us his informed take on so-called Toy Channels; that popular fad on YouTube in which unfunny parents will showcase random toys and give them to their kids, only for their viewing figures to crack six digits because evidently shit like this is entertainment gold. It’s basically a new way for people to make a quick buck off of their children’s cuteness in exchange for letting said children become spoiled brats who will henceforth be used to getting a bigger, more annoying version of Christmas every week.
However, there was something in iDubbbz’s video on the matter that didn’t quite fit. At timestamp 5:48, there is footage that doesn’t seem to connect or even relate to the other Toy Review Channels within the vid. Instead, I think Ian tried to warn us that the worst was yet to come. A trend even less deserving of being popular. An idea for content even more fascinatingly inane. Here’s the video, first of all: Continue reading
I’ve written about the shenanigans Facebook users get up to far too often. Back in 2012, I wrote about this frankly disturbing trend where people used images of sick, deformed and/or badly hurt individuals to get more likes on their fan pages while feigning sympathy (twice). Then, three years later, I wrote about people on Facebook who manipulate the emotion opposite of sadness via so-called “humor” pages that share a bunch of regurgitated memes or unsourced screenshots of whiny ‘teen posts’ that you’ve seen already – and are usually completely irrelevant to the page name.
And no, it doesn’t count when a cesspool of cringe like “Minion Quotes” takes a random string of words, whether they’re intended to be funny or touching (none of which they are), and just slaps an unrelated picture of a Minion next to it. It’s not a Minion quote. It’s the same kind of fatuous bullshit that everyone else already posts and you’re just using the popularity of these unfunny pill creatures to make users across the globe even more enticed by your posts so that you can make even more easy dollars (yes, nowadays you can get attention and money by doing this). At least write “blah blah blah banana” or something! People will still think it’s the epitome of comedy.
Yes, I put a watermark on this. Like it matters in today’s virtual world.
Oh hi. Did the purposely stupid and ridiculous title of my post grab your attention? Well, good. Then you and I can have a little talk about the definition of true equality.
I had a discussion with my parents a long time ago regarding that very subject. The question was brought up as to where the line goes between true equality and exaggeration. How extreme can a person get as to what should be considered discrimination and sexism? Will people such asthe “politically correct” be satisfied when women are paid the same wage as men for an equivalent amount of work, or will the next step in the fight for equality be to find a way for women and men to start sharing the public restroom?

I love how you get just as much out of this one image as you’d get out of watching any of these guys’ videos in its entirety.
It’s pretty fucking sad when you have so little to offer creatively that you make PewDiePie, The Fine Brothers and even Ray William Johnson seem like better examples of something. At least PewDiePie has some form of actual reaction to the stuff he watches. At least The Fine Bros. interview all their “Reaction Videos” subjects about what they just reacted to and thus offer up some sort of commentary. At least Ray William Johnson… um… well he… he, uh… Okay, his dick jokes make dumb 12-year-old boys laugh, and that’s still more than I can say about people who run so-called “Reactor Channels”.
What is a “Reactor”? Well, it’s someone who reacts to movie trailers or just other people’s YouTube videos, and also videotape said reactions to use in content of their own. But oh man, these guys don’t just include snippets of the work like The Fine Brothers and Ray William Johnson normally do, nor do they edit out and compile the highlights of their own reactions, no-no-no. These beacons of creativity literally just play entire YouTube clips that other people have made and react to them in real-time, which is often minimal in terms of actual “reacting”, usually giving an equally meaningless and unthought-out “review” of what they’ve seen afterwards.
This isn’t exactly MST3K-level commentary we’re talking about here, nor are the reactions as memorable as they might be in, say, those trailer reactions that Star Wars and Hobbit fanboys post (even when it’s deliberately stoic as a joke). It’s just a bunch of random, untalented assholes making a living by copy-and-pasting content that other people put actual time and effort into. “Famous” Reactors like Jinx, CJisSoCool and “the Big 4” do no such thing (even if Akasan seems like a good guy).

Yes, this is also one of my Halloween posts. Because vampires, that’s why.
An article by Laura Moss entitled Why must we hate the things teen girls love? has been circling the social networks like crazy lately. It basically bolsters the recently popularized belief that anyone who criticizes content (be it a movie, music or an infamously braindead book series) that panders to teenage girls is only doing so because everybody else is doing it, supposedly ignoring the quality of the work itself entirely, which would be unfair and, like most things, sexist.

A few days ago, I reblogged a post on Tumblr that read the following:
“honestly tumblr ideological discourse is such a mess, like, a huge section of tumblr is young people being inundated with radical ideas that they’ve never been exposed to before with absolutely no context, and then they’re expected to immediately start pushing these ideas (even though they’re incapable of understanding them because they haven’t been given the framework with which to do so) and it just ends up in a mess of guilt-tripping and increasingly confused ideology”
Clearly this was one of those times where a person’s ability to make a good point is irrespective of their ability to press Shift, so I decided to support it by adding this: Continue reading
