Except, in the case of Rebecca Black, it actually worked, and she became the synthetic, window-dressing version of a pop star.

isn't that all a pop star is anyway? or is this like a cheap chinese knock-off of already cheap products?

Imagine a sculptor being confronted by a stranger, who, as it turns out, confesses to revere our sculptor. Imagine the flattery known to anybody who is told they've inspired some noble aspiration in somebody. The student then presents our sculptor with a work fashioned after the sculptor's own style - a likeness of the student himself. It is a monstrosity! A farking mess. Even worse, is that our artist sees that this piece of shiat before him is a more reasonable facsimile of his own work than he'd like to think. You farking idiot!! Admire me?!! You shiat!!! I'm the villain in this farking story!

Hey, it's an excuse to link to this. NSFW language, I'm sure you're aware, and not very warm to the song itself, but it does talk well about the market-force driving hatred of the original.

OK, that's been covered.

FTA: "As long as people are paying attention to your YouTube videos, to your tweets or to your blog posts, then each one can be considered a success,"

Words to remember. Folks, even if that site is a wealth of material for bone-headed news; don't use it, don't click on the link.

I know that David Wong/Jason Pargin is Cracked's senior editor, but I swear to god every single article reads like he was the main author. Does he just re-write every submission from scratch or what?

Also, kids apparently like the music.  Who cares.  Kids have always liked music from phony-ish pop acts who are also around their age.

Well, it isn't exactly original. It is just the video version of Glamour Shots, which was the photographic version of Who's Who in America.

The Internet has devalued hatred. Where overwhelming public criticism used to shatter people and make them re-evaluate their decisions in life, now everyone just expects it. The trolls, the bullies, the teenagers and the attention-starved have ruined their only weapon, spreading loathing so liberally across so many comment sections that it's all become white noise. Today, anyone creating for the Internet (me included) is so callused to spiteful criticism that it's no more effective at making us alter our forward momentum than a swarm of cluster flies.


This is this most sensible thing I've read on the intertubes all year, sadly.

That one story is why I feel obligated to go into "White Knight mode" whenever some comics aficionado starts ripping on Johnny: The Homicidal Maniac. It's a point where the story couldn't get any weirder... and so Jhonen Vasquez makes it as horrifically human as possible. Even great fiction writers struggle to do that.

I like Cracked. Always did, even in print form, despite the fact that it was the lame stepbrother of Mad Magazine.

The problem isn't Cracked. The problem is that the Internet has made people stupid and it is in the process of ditching actual journalism, essay-writing, comedic writing, and other forms of written entertainment into rather over-used, bland, by-the-numbers collections of lists.

Yes, these days every site-- especially the geek sites-- are just piles and piles of stupid lists. Top 10 Star Wars Characters Who Got Herpes. Top 10 Zombie Babies in Movies. Top 10 Ways Uwe Boll Is Better Than Michael Bay. Twenty Ways Twilight Has Ruined Vampires. Top 50 Ways George Lucas Bad-Touched The Internet Star Wars Fans. blah blah blah blah blah.

And unfortunately, Cracked fell prey to this trend, which made them stop giving good writers space for funny articles, and instead turned them into a more polished copy of every stupid nerd blog on the Internet.

You can read all about it in my list: Twenty-Seven Reasons Lists Are Lazy, Stupid Writing.

That reeks of bullshiat. Having more people contributing to journalism, essays, comedy, and other written media means that we're all dumber? Perhaps the access is now better and more people (many stupid) can now be heard.
