I'm not a fan of that either. I don't update my site every day because I'm much busier than I used to be, but more importantly, I've always been a quality over quantity kind of person when it comes to content. Just as social media has practically killed message forums, bullshit sites like BuzzFeed have killed off quality content.

I could easily churn out the kind of useless drivel BuzzFeed does, but I'd rather not steal 10 animated gifs from around the web, not credit the sources, and then spend maybe five minutes surrounding them with words that no self-respecting writer would describe as an article. I prefer to take my time, snap my own photographs, and put some actual time, effort, and love into the work. Unfortunately, that means less frequent updates, and the web has sadly become all about who can update the most frequently and get the most followers and blahblahblah.

It's the same reason why you see YouTubers shooting so many quick "vlog" videos about absolutely nothing. It's filler. It's an update for the sake of updating. I guess I just don't believe in putting up content like that... I'd rather take a little more time and make something that a person might still remember later on down the road.

Don't get me wrong though; there's still a lot of great stuff on the web these days, but there's so much b.s. you have to wade through to get to it, I can see how a lot of people don't care enough to seek it out. It's a lot easier to just hang out on Facebook all day and share the latest LOL-inducing image with your friends. There's no time commitment to it. Quick laugh and then get on with your day. It's just not what I'm into. I like reading lengthy pieces in my down-time, so I guess that's why I tend to enjoy writing them too.

This is the generation of me first and I want it now. It's all about pointless viral shit that has the appeal for 1 day at best, everything is monotonous and lacks value. "Music" like Skrillex and Jay Z is what's hot and trending. It's a fucking disaster. Cinema is dead and practically replaced by youtube. When movies like Pacific Rim and Magic Mike exist, you no shit as hit the bottom. It's all about money and appealing to the masses, and masses have spoken, they like being force fed shit.

Like this post if you're a true 80s 90s kid!

Mockery Jan 28th, 2014 06:30 AM

Babs - While I know it's easy to be jaded about it all, there's lots of awesome stuff to be found out there these days... sometimes you just gotta dig around. Independent creators have far better means of getting their work out to the masses than they ever did in the past - but with that, there's obviously gonna be a lot more lackluster material to dig through to get to the good stuff. And while I'll always be a huge fan of the creations I grew up on in my childhood years, I'm constantly finding great shows, movies, music, toys, art, web sites, and more. I'm just not into the work that people clearly put no love into and are just doing it in the hopes of making a quick buck. Keep looking around though, you'll find things you like, I promise.

umm watch yourself. magic mike is an amazing movie, and all the beefcake is just filler. MAYBE YOU SHOULD WATCH IT

tons of awesome foreign films and independent music still coming out daily, just gotta search for it.

liquidstatik Jan 28th, 2014 03:49 PM

also i follow norm macdonald on twitter to hear funny jokes but all he does is talk about golf :(

bigtimecow Jan 28th, 2014 04:17 PM

you're like a typewriter

your head is underwood

:lol

Don't forget Reddit! That probably has a lot to do with other forums being obsolete.

Tadao Jan 29th, 2014 03:46 PM

I think I've only clicked on links that lead to reddit. Never actually went there on my own. I used to be on fark all the fucking time until 9/11 happened and then I just kind of lost interest there. 9/11 ruined a shit ton of media for me.

i like the AMAs on reddit. never participated but reading through the archives is great. especially for stuff like when someone corrected the obama's grammar :x

I don't know why the fuck people think it's okay to move a lamp away to a different table, and expect not to pay for it when they knock it over.

ThrashO Jan 31st, 2014 01:02 PM

oh what up playboy

I agree, there's a lot of talent out there just not out in the view for the public. I don't mind digging for something, it's practically what I do with most of my free time. I just get discouraged that when I go out to go see a movie, that what is out in main movie theaters is just the same boring and godawful shit that is dished out non stop, it's just ate up by the masses. Not only that but any good movie that is showing is in select theaters that I have to drive out of my way to go see (Then again I do live in shitty Columbus, Ohio). Just thoughts like that shitty Jennifer Lawrence movie, "the house at the end of the street" is practically every cliche convention that any cheesy slasher has used, went on to gross 43 million dollars where as a great movie such as The Master only grossed 16 million (one of the films the was only being shot at select theaters where I live). I'm probably more or less just caught of in caring about what others like and take it personally, but I just find it disheartening to see how most of the good quality stuff out there doesn't get to reap the rewards like all that other trite stuff out there does.

Tadao Feb 1st, 2014 02:02 AM

It's been this way forever.

Zomboid Feb 1st, 2014 03:04 AM

Babs, you're a pretentious little baby. The Master didn't do well in cinemas. :(

I hope that someday you'll realize how repugnant that statement is.

Babs Feb 1st, 2014 06:56 PM

Not my intentions what so ever.

One of my rats may have sprained her back paw. She's eating and drinking fine, but she's not putting much weight on it. Little shit has me worried to death

life is cyclical suck

also I might be moving. I figure either Washington or Tangier, I'm edging toward Tangier because I want to lose myself in a hash fueled orgy.

Tadao Feb 4th, 2014 01:33 PM

Africa? You would have to be high to move there.

My friends rat just died the other day, the most social one too. The other 2 have been rather odd and seem to be depressed if that's even possible. Rest in peace Mr. Hendrith.
