Okay, I really, really, and I mean REALLY, don't like doing this. Especially considering the fact that it ruins the flow of the events in progress and annoys people.
I don't know how many of you out there are having the same problem as me, but lately, due to the creation of a certain game (Slender), the whole internet universe is imploding with talk of the Slender Man. Now I admit, I've always felt like the whole mythos was an under appreciated topic that deserved more recognition, but now it's drowning in the limelight and I feel like the only person who's standing here helpless as something I've enjoyed for so long slowly die beneath the strain of so many people pointing and screaming and pissing their pants.
Mainly due to the majority of people who don't even peel back the surface and take a closer look at the culture struggling to strive beneath it all. Taking to countless youtube videos, facebook profiles, and by god... the witless memes.
I understand that Slender Man began as an internet meme, but not like have the bullshit his face is being plastered upon nowadays.
Call me an OCD bitch, but I can't stand watching people proclaim their knowledge of the Slender Man when they don't even know what The Something Awful Forum is!
I have issues, and I'm struggling to turn a blind eye towards all of this, but with all these 'celebrities', and I use the term lightly, fanbase upon childish fanbase is streaming over everything and I feel like the 'mainstream', yet another term I use lightly, is devouring this whole intricate web of terror and turning it into a parody of what it used to be.
Rarely does anyone recognize a runner, fighter or proxy. All I hear spouting from their lips are countless ramblings on "I watched pewdiepie play...", "I saw Tobuscus play...", "I watched Nova play..."
It's maddening for me, I may not have been following Slender Man since his initial internet birth in 2008 (I started early 2010), but it's become almost an obsession, from Marblehornets, Everyman Hybrid, Dark Harvest, Just Another Fool, Dreams in Darkness, and more leading up to the creation of the first actual blog of my own.
Maybe I'm just crazy... Maybe I need to shut up and stop rambling... Maybe this is a sign that I really should get out and actually live my LIFE!
I understand that my blog isn't particularly good, but that doesn't mean I haven't poured the best of me into it. Ahh, I'll just see where things go the next couple of weeks, maybe something will happen or I'll miraculously pull this stick out of my arse...
grrr, I ranted... fuck. Well basically, in a nutshell, shit's happening, so the blog will be quiet for a little while longer.
Sorry for taking up your time. Feel free to point and laugh now, I positively adore the abuse.
