Well god help him if they found out he was one of those last post loosers.

Mike Rylander, the answer to "whatever happened to Jim J. Bullock"?

I stopped watching WTFark when he no longer included FARK commenters in the vids. I don't post a lot, so when I got a mention, it was a glorious moment. Like I had finally hit the big time.

An even worse crime is if he was taking pictures of men. Because what's worse than being "massage-anistic" is liking pictures of men.

Not to mention the medium. Photography is the lowest form of art. We should probably prevent him from painting* or writing poetry about anyone's bodies because someone might be getting off somewhere.

Prrrrreeetttyyy sure that these people, if indeed there were real models, noticed some dude with his easel set up painting them. Kind of different from hiding in the bushes with a camera...

Has there ever been a generally positive reception to these things? Because these Fark TV re branded videos seem terrible enough to be you Jose Cuervo Cue Moment of the Week. Brought to you by Gawker media and the Daily Mail.

So how did subby get primer commentario in the headline without getting filter pwned?

On the plus side, in a few years Mr. Rylander will be able to ask Google to remove links to this video. I completely support his right to be forgotten.

Don't look at it. Shut your eyes.  Don't look at it, no matter what happens!

I read the headline as Virginia Beach, if he was busted there he would be charged with something by the NY city rejects they call cops. Pricks each and every one of them.

Now if he can only get banned by the rest of the state... and 49 other states... and DC... and the rest of his crew with him.

Then we'd be in business.

Well, here's the thing.  Remember that kid in high school?  The one that thought his jokes were HILARIOUS, but fell flat and died every time?  You know that guy.  He'd tell the same damned joke in a thousand different ways.  Because he found it funny, he figured everyone would find it funny.  But they didn't.  So he did it over, and over, and over, and over again, all in slightly different ways, fully expecting people to finally "get it".  What he never understood is everybody "got it", they just didn't want it.   The problem wasn't in how he was saying it.  It was what was being said.  It just wasn't funny.  The only thing common to every failed retelling of the joke was HIM.

FarkTV is like that.  It doesn't understand why we don't "get" the sweat and the dead man's balls.  We got it ages ago.  We just don't want it.

I watched 30 seconds of one episode. I know, I know: hardly fair to base judgments on that... but it was bad. The host was so banal, his patter so cookie-cutter and boring, the attempts at humor so forced... sometimes you can just tell right away. You just know this thing is stillborn and you can't watch any more.

Actually, if I had to guess, I'd say it's more about increasing various web metrics (like clicks and time on page, and revisits etc.) as well as broadening the brand horizons.  Drew 'gets' people don't like it, but just like the 'HOW ONE HOUSE MOM DISCOVERED 8 CRAZY WAYS TO LOSE 2 POUNDS IN A SECOND THAT THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT!!!' ads, it's never about the savvy consumer, it's about getting as many clicks as possible, and that's just lowest common denominator.

So no, it doesn't (really) matter that FarkTv or WTFark are 'that kid' from high school. They're going to keep getting schlepped around every year or so because Drew has said historically Fark's not a huge money maker.

Uriel: Prrrrreeetttyyy sure that these people,


Prrrrreeetttyyy sure that those people,  had cloth parts covering their extremities or they wouldn't have been in public. Are you saying that no great work of art has ever caught a subject unaware or unexposed?

BTW. Without examing the pictures he took, nobody would ever know if there were some genius shots taken. But we simply assume that he's masturbating to the photos or something. (Like your mom would).

An example of a candid and inappropriate shot of someone with a camera creating art.

Probably Not Safe for Work or Fark Mods who frown on such pictures.

Good on you Rylander. This can go one of two ways: You can become shamed before the whole world for perving chicks; or you can dive right in and brag you did it.
 
2014-06-08 11:16:35 PM
Also that face is a lot better than the smirk I would be wearing, which really would look pervy on camera. :/
 
2014-06-08 11:20:53 PM
I don't even know Mike Rylander yet somehow I hate him. After the last WTFark thread I commented in I felt a little bad for some of the things I said and resolved to watch this and give it another try. I don't feel sorry anymore; fire him, take any computers that you have footage already shot on and burn them. Then maybe the healing can start.

Oh, god, and to think I finally had several years of peace.  Forgetting that something like SuperDeluxe had ever existed.  I had finally transcended to post-SuperDeluxe-dom.  And damn if you didn't drag me right back into the world that created it.

This "banning" occurred at a beach in Yorktown, VA (site of the famous surrender of Cornwallis to Washington in 1781), not Virginia Beach, VA, "World's Largest Resort City", site if the notorious "GreekFest" in 1989, which are nearly 60 miles apart.

Lets not FARK up the facts, subby.

The comments that are pure vitriol is why we stopped.

Seriously, when I first started, we were all about involving Farkers and Farker comments...

...but then, it was like, oh, you guys hate us. Like, hate us hate us. Like the kind of hate where it doesn't matter what we do, you're just going to hate us period.

And then it's like, if they hate us, why keep quoting them? They hate us. And they don't care. Nor do they want anything to do with us.

But if you guys wanna get involved, and wanna help make this thing cool and funny, I'd be more than happy to involve anyone that wants to get in.

Seriously.

Actually, we were just experimenting with our form.

And we're so not DOA. We're syndicated by The Huffington Post and AOL, and we're increasing viewership weekly.

When we jump the shark, you'll know.

I've given you tons of shiat on here. But a lot of people haven't, you have control over what comments you use why not just pick what you like? Some people really enjoyed that. I get that WTFark is my favorite website for this website but if you are going to carry the name work with the people willing to do so. Ignore all the vitrol and pull what's relevant or funny. I may not like this program but I've been coming to this website and hanging out in the comment sections for 11 or 12 years now and I would like to see it succeed financially.
