Collected Sayings of Dalits and Funko-Pop Americans
#1
Was just thinking of a few funny comments that were shared with me recently and thought it might be fun to start a thread to compile and discuss funny, silly, and offensive comments made on media and culture observed online. A kind of light internet anthropology exercise. Focusing maybe particularly on comment sections and reactions to media phenomena.

This scene came up in a discussion today, and the character of the comments was noted. This whole movie is a very limp and silly exercise in trying to produce awe, wonder, and warm feelings through a completely lifeless pipeline process. These comments are an interesting reaction. They seem to recognise the intentions of the filmmakers, and obligingly react with equally plastic, lifeless, and pipelined expressions of awe, wonder, and warm feelings. Look at these comments here all in a row, like how ghostbusters:afterlife is barely distinguishable from its nostalgiawave peers, the comments are barely distinguishable from each other.

I thought it might be fun to just collect these and see if anything interesting comes of it.

I'm sure everyone's seen this "reimagining" by now but there's nothing more deserving of being in this thread.

The Bollywood consumer, despite outward appearances, is the target audience of the sequel trilogy. I don't think these people really even understood why the sequel films were bad to begin with, considering they eat up this schlock; it's just as offensive to the nature of the story as this "reimagining" is. When Holdo hyper-rams two capital ships into one another, this type of person was fascinated but ultimately walked away displeased knowing "they made Luke a pussy".

An amarnite on twitter had a great tweet essentially reminding twitter that the reason we created the contempt for Funko Pop people was not because it was "consumerism", "nihilism", or "late stage capitalism", as the post-leftists/wignats say, but because those people were effeminate libtards with terrible taste. I'll post if I can find it.

I think both viewpoints have merit. A culture full of garbage products like Funko Pops will cultivate garbage people, and garbage people will patronize garbage products, in a feedback loop of endless shitting-up.

What a fantastic thread. I only saw the first tweet but the second two are amazing and not something that has been elucidated before. Scholars of masculinity and aspiring artists should take note of this. A quest for treasure or ownership of a beautiful girl (another form of property) will always feel more real than a quest to save the world or save some child or whatever contrived bullshit motivation that is tortured to fit into modern selfless faggot morality. This is why old pulp fiction/sword&sorcery/Appendix N stories are so enjoyable and why modern stories make you feel gross and slimy in an indescribable way.

I am still fascinated with movie recaps, and saw this comment under one today.

This guy has unintentionally said the quiet part out loud on a big part of youtube. This is a real person who unthinkingly uses 'recap' and 'review' interchangeably. Youtube criticism culture is just recaps.

This is exactly why I've found the Cugel the Clever books by Jack Vance so entertaining. The main character doesn't care about anyone except himself, exploits people at every turn and his primary motivations are survival and revenge, which leads him into hilarious situations at times. You don't see it in literature or media anywhere today.

Read a lot of Jack Vance on Aidan's recommendation. The whole "Tales of the Dying Earth" and "Lyonesse" collections should be top books for us. Should probably make a fiction thread for all my shallow opinions.

Vance is unfactcheckably based. The Cugel books are great but get dry and repetitive, maybe because I marathoned the whole Dying Earth series in a few days. Which is why I'm glad the first and fourth books exist.

Vance's depiction of women is varied and outstanding. After Cugel failed a few times with women I thought it was going to be some feminist thing where he was going to be made to look like a fool every time. But then he succeeds in
Show Content


Jack Vance is a must read for enjoyers of basedness, adventure, masculinity, fantasy, luxury, the lugubrious, and the loquacious. 

I did not know Aidan was a fan. I would like to see his other recommendations.

This is a hell of a video. Another variation on recaps. This time it seems to be about feeling better than steven seagal but on this really quaintly low and outdated feeling level. This humour feels like it's made for 10 year olds from the 2000s.

Strange and funny to me that people are enjoying this. Really just look at a minute of the video to get a feel for the level of humour we're on.

These videos are weird enough as is. They're a divergence from the base form of the "becoming uncanny" meme; instead of establishing a tier list or narrative of descent, they're just le random key-jangling "content" that could easily be machine-generated. Things get even weirder when you look at the comments:

This comment section has none of the usual "I like how" sycophancy; it's more like the EPIC dunks in a chud's replies when they stir a beehive on twatter. Every single video of his is blanketed by this sort of vitriol, commented shortly after the video, produced by roughly the same set of users each time. If we apply the usual rule of thumb, we find that the majority of MrDweller's engagement comes from hate-watchers. His wiki page has no shortage of slander:

Quote:MrDweller and similar channels, such as CANNY, have been criticized for being lazy and unfunny, using a dead meme to get views, and deviating from the "normal" Mr. Incredible Becomes Uncanny/Canny/Old/Etc memes to make entirely new formats of the meme that people view to be nonsensical or simply unfunny. MrDweller himself has been criticized for putting in little effort into his videos, as well as for milking the Mr. Incredible meme to the point where it becomes cringe and unfunny.

He has also been accused of being racist, as shown in, for example, a video titled "Mr Incredible Becoming Scared (You live in)". On Discord, he has also been confirmed to say the n-word multiple times, and has made Islamophobic comments on Discord as well, according to a video made by one of MrDweller's haters. That same video also showed him supporting Adolf Hitler, hating Ukraine, and making death threats to another Discord user. He has also made homophobic/transphobic content in his videos before. In addition, MrDweller often makes fun of the poor, homeless, and disabled in his videos to rake in more views and money. Also, the majority of MrDweller's fanbase are children, yet MrDweller still includes explicit/suggestive content in his videos.

How has he accrued such a dedicated hatedom? Is this a viral marketing gimmick on his part? Is a rival uncanny-maker running a gayop against him?  What is the appeal? What is the anti-appeal?

A strange type of discussion I've noticed that happens around any sort of TV show (in this case, Family Guy) is the dissecting of the morals and emotions of the characters as if they're real people or even just well thought out characters. I've seen people talk about how evil Peter is or how sad Meg must be. I never understood this. The entire point of the characters in Family Guy (especially past season 3) is that they're supposed to be one dimensional characters that embody an archetype which can deliver jokes well and get into scenarios that fit the character. There is literally nothing deeper to it. Yet I'll still see people sympathizing with the characters as if they're watching so cinematographic masterpiece. To me, this is like a stand up (low form of entertainment btw) comedian telling a joke involving two characters and having the audience discuss the deep morals of the characters instead of just laughing at the punchline. I'm not sure if this applies to other TV shows; Maybe I'm just biased because I think TV is a waste of time. The Sopranos lasts as long as two Scarfaces. No one understood.

Very interesting to see the tolerance of recycled format memes that the CCAN/normalfag has. I suppose recycling different meme formats of the month or at least having somewhat of a creative flair will merit you praise as the normie brain is being overstimulated with enough media that acts as ingroup signaling.
