I am NOT a sell-out!

One of the many tiresome behaviour patterns on YouTube is the number of self-appointed watchdogs who spend all their time “exposing” people for being sellouts.  It never ceases to amaze how how tiny-minded people can be.  Anyone who pays attention to my writing on this blog will know I hold humans generally in very low regard.

I spend my whole life expecting the worst of people and I’m rarely disappointed (readers of this blog excepted, you’re all fabulous people).  Besides the fact that setting the bar so low almost always results in an accurate estimation of human behaviour, those rare instances when someone actually behaves decently seem all the better.

YouTube, on the other hand, is almost guaranteed to throw up new lows of behaviour almost every day.  It’s full of morons, racists, low-lifes and psychopaths.  The actual value of these people’s opinions seems to be inversely proportional to the venom and violence with which they spew it forth.

I’ve noticed from my early days on YouTube that it’s full of people who are absolutely sure that they alone hold the wisdom to know what is and isn’t acceptable on YouTube.  I remember laughing at the person who decreed that only personal video blogs should be allowed on YouTube – anyone who dared to do comedy, music or any other sort of performance should be thrown off.  Their delivery suggested they actually expected to be taken seriously.

More recently, as this whole online shtick has started to look like a viable money making venture YouTube has been crawling with people decrying anyone who dares to even consider monetary reward.  The absurd thing is how many of these “purists” lump together completely unrelated behaviour like simply asking for money (what’s become known as e-begging), selling merchandise (t-shirts, DVDs etc.) and any sort of commercial enterprise (being paid to make videos, sponsorpship etc.)

Anyway, I’m scared of being censured by these purists so I made this video to reassure everyone that I am NOT a sell-out!

  1. well if some one says that im a sell out i propably would respond “if im a sell-out then could you tell me to what or who so i can get my money” extra money hasnt ever hurt me

  2. Sir Henry

    role model: Angry Snr. Hey, he’s having a prostate problem I understand from a snippet in the fishwrap somewhere. What’s the dude do? He says, hey, why don’t you use me to get guys my age to publicise going for a check up. Angry just can’t cope with being out of the spotlight. Even if it means having someone stick a rubber gloved digit up your freckle in public. Angry jnr: don’t go there!

  3. shadowshian: I’ll take all the extra money I can gett

    Sir Henry: could be worse, failed US presidential candidate Bob Dole does ads for Viagra.

    Hey RageMeistre, in your response to that beknighted degenerate of the realm, Sir H, you observe:
    “could be worse, failed US presidential candidate Bob Dole does ads for Viagra.”

    Bobby was just barring-up to relieve himself of a bit of financial back-pressure, that’s all.

    And to shadowshian:

    “I’ll take all the extra money I can gett”

    When you do, buy a fucken spell-check, ya cheap cunt! Are you impecunious because of circumstances beyond your control, or because you are some kind of after hours schmecker( narcotic drug abuser), notwithstanding the hyper-caffeinism induced mega-fidgetting stunts in your relished role as a workplace Torquemada?

  5. EC: I’m all for the relieveing of financial pressure. I wish someone would pay me to promote viagara, maybe then I’d let some of the spam through.

    And as for spell checking, well… yeah. I usually spell check posts but I can get a bit lazy with comments. Nothing as colourful as a drug habit to justify my laziness.

  6. well im paranoid about my typing and spell checking it becouse only languages i can write at full speed with out too many typos are finnish with Northern Ostrobothnian accent and C-language.

  7. hahahaha, C! You nerd!

  8. you learn to write c with out too many flaws if it takes 15 minutes to upload a program to micro-controller and another 5 to test it. it does get really irritating after a while
