Another OCD rant brought to you by TOH LPC.
*Watching/listening to someone's self-promoted 'high quality' content... but it's NOT*
*Scrolling through comments - everyone's HAPPY about thier 'high quality' material... AND IT'S NOT*
*No one's helping this person live up to their self-hyped name - shakes head and sighs hard*
I hate seeing how shitty a certain aspect of something is and knowing what's causing it (glitch and production failure) when no one else is complaining about it because the creator of that content obviously either doesn't care at all (low-grade creator and output) or they assume their audience is too stupid to even notice or care (so why put perfume on a pig?)... and because I'm not an idiot and because I have actual skills in these areas (in such situations - even when producing 'noise art') this pisses me off - but that's just me, and I have to deal with myself, no one else. I'll survive (grumpy as usual).
*Decides to contact another failing fake over-hyped 'creator' with some simple tech help for FREE*
*Gets HATE MAIL reply posted in public!*
Once the creator has been engaged and they give me GRIEF about their chosen methods..... *Growls* Fuck-you. Unless you start a musical project (or whatever) that's an obvious self-parody or parody of other over-hyped garbage or similar, don't promote yourself as 'highly skilled' or even 'amazing' or any other hyped up wordy bullshit when clearly you're anything but average! Stop talking like you're 'awesome' unless you truly are AMAZING or are a clear self-parody of people who talk that nonsense... especially if you HATE hearing that you're flawed or don't really care about your audience.
What pisses me off the most is having contacted the creator of some messed up glitched out production, they then reply with something like "No one else has said anything (about this technical or production issue) so obviously it's all just you... (nag, bitch, whine, cry and other passive-aggressive trash for no reason other than it is obvious that their over-reaction is caused by them already knowing how crappy their creation actually is on that level)". Look! If you KNOW you're producing SHIT to begin with and one out of 1000 people call you out on it, and those odds really bother you, then DON'T PUT OUT CRAP IN THE FIRST PLACE! Take some serious constructive advice from another professional and ADAPT like a good little evolving monkey or just disable ALL comments and possible contact methods regarding your creations, OK? Don't have "CONTACT me about my amazing art!" blasted all over your pages! Then you won't keep reacting like the jerk that you really are. Accept the facts or close all communications. If you really "didn't care" then that's a whole other problem that could never be fixed through technological or production level advice anyway, and your reaction would be one of casual notice and almost no reaction at all... maybe possible interest in learning something new, but that's not likely at all. (IE: "Oh... I never noticed that before... thanks. I'll look into it, but I'm no professional so... I'll see what I can do.") That I can deal with. But to BARK at me for being as intelligent as you, and for being as SKILLED as you while you intentionally release CRAP to the world and write up self-reviews like you're some kind of "professional hero" and you seriously think you are when you're not and for being called out on that bullshit... without being an actual self-parody....... Man, that's really fucking stupid! Better action: Just don't even reply to me and turn your private contact system right OFF! Moral: Maybe you really do hate all your fans and think of them as pigs after all with all your false self-created hype. Have you ever considered being a punk or noise artist instead? Maybe you just need to end your suffering, seriously, if it's really that bad for you.
I'm smarter than you in one really important way too... and if you figured that out you'd be happy to have been 'caught' and would want to collaborate immediately. Of course I might refuse you, but that's just my personal choice at the time. Seriously though, open yourself up to greater marketing potential - you might like the extra cash. But first, you have to stop deluding yourself with your own false hype! Cut the crap. Get some FREE technical support from your random fans who have the same skills as you (or maybe better). Did I mention it's FREE?!
If we went back 300 years you'd be the person who lives in the bush who's still trying to play your banjo with your ass and talking about how good you are at it and how popular you are for doing so while your family considers taking you for a short walk behind the wood-shed. Heck, just go back 70 years and you're the person who's using pen and paper to write sheet music about your art and taking photos of those sheets to 'play them for people' and saying you 'sound the best' while avoiding all early recording studios (some offering FREE TIME with session musicians IN THE STUDIO WITH YOU) to finally get your sounds actually RECORDED the way they were meant to be heard by the masses, some who would actually pay you greatly for the honour (stupid and intelligent alike). What a waste!
If you have realized what was stated here then the pattern of this message has been received... if not then maybe you're actually angry at yourself for not being able to understand what I already said after all - maybe take up a professional training course in something and grow from this... or hire a writer who'll be more honest about your creations than you are to yourself and your fans. "Average musician, average production quality, occasional glitches and bad frame rates and totally unprofessional production quality in videos, deal with it - buy it or not, the artist just does this for fun and doesn't really care either way." #PunkRules
Important: Just because everyone else is using the same crappy technology and also doesn't know (or care) how to use it PROPERLY doesn't mean us '1 in 1000' won't notice you doing the exact same thing! In fact, even your 'dumb' fans can tell once it's pointed out to them (comparisons), only they are so used to crap from everyone else they think it's 'normal' and 'that's the best current technology can achieve today', thus you've actually helped dumb down society like everyone else. Thanks for that!... asshole. You're NOT doing the inventors of modern technology any favours at all! And thus there's LESS decently created common gear for us to buy either! (We're stuck paying THOUSANDS for anything good anymore because they are no longer mass-produced because everyone's happy sucking on SHIT!)
