The Fail and Freefalling of Anime Blogging
Gee, how do I put this in a way that makes sense and get everyone to suck on my shiny metal dong. I mean, there are people1 doing it, why shouldn’t I?
Call me an oldfag, but I do remember the past. When the biggest target there was, was (pun not exactly intended) Jason Miao2, and the rest of them people didn’t jump in until this stuff EXPLODED. Man, that was fun, parodying Jason Miao, NERD RAGING at stupid things (for entertainment purposes), writing whatever the heck I felt, witty faux newsposts about people NERD RAGING over stupid things (with unintended victims actually finding their NERD RAGING hilarious sometimes3)…
Man, those were the days. Good times, good times.
Unfortunately, the good times are over. Where parody and silly good fun once reigned, bigotry, churlishness, and monkeys flinging poop at one another have come up in it’s place4. Also the massive sucking of dongs5 of people who exhibit said qualities.
I mean, it’s mildly amusing when trolls do it once, or maybe a few times, just to draw attention6 to something, but when it becomes a defining trait of a blog (or author, it may seem), and people AGREE with him blindly7 without checking on the intention of the author…
I mean, you just gotta take a few braincells and think. Really, really hard.
Is this what we really want in the end? A bunch of ego-satisfying writers with zero regard for promotion? People who can’t watch, review, and criticize animated Japtoons (so to speak) and only use said Japtoons to troll, fling poop and advance selfish agendas? (Okay, I’m guilty of advancing the Christian agenda at some point of time, but it’s not like people actually read the offending articles now, does it?)
It’s one thing to talk about banalities8, it’s a completely different matter to act like a colonial power and deem it your divine mission to ram your mode of thinking down people’s throats. Or forcing people to suck on your shiny metal dong, in this case. Even if you are right about many, many things.9
1 At least one person, and it’s not Colony Drop (that’s at least 5 people, and no one likes them.). I’m talking about wildarmsheero and Owen S. And DarkMirage, if you so hail from sunny-ish Singapore.
7 On many, many occasions, latest one being here.
