Okay, this is a repost from one of my SBM blog thingies, but I really feel like I should repeat my stance here, considering both the introduction of blogs and just how ridiculous the topic is.
plus, I need to owe something to everybody for not making that rebuttal against coyoterants
If you haven't guessed from that title, I'm about to go into something EmperorLemon related. In this case, I have an interesting relationship with the fellow. When I first saw one of his poops, (in particular Krusty Krustacean's Kantankerous Kommercial) I liked it, but didn't love it. Then I saw his Incredibles poop. I found it hilarious bar the utterly depressing ending. As from there, I gradually became a huge fan of him. The admittedly stale Frying Nemo series kind of lowered my interest in him, but then he made the third episode of Admiral Ackbar's Traptastic Sextravaganza, which I still consider one of my favorite poops of all time. From there, it was all but expected for Lemon to not live up to that poop.
What I didn't expect from him, however, was for him to stop even trying.
This isn't that Ackbar was so good, it made his future videos pale in comparison. No, the videos after Ackbar were, even as standalone poops, baddddddd, showcasing a once-promising pooper turn into a huge attention whore. His jackass behavior only needs to be showcased through his twitter account. All of this eventually came to a tee with an utterly confusing video where I can certainly say he has lost his mind.
I don't get it either.
Let it be known that throughout this decline, he has increasingly taken potshots towards the decently-populated YTP forum, YouChew. These potshots... are very much created to start shit. This has gotten to the point where recently, this happened.
Getting to the chase, he created this 12-page rant on his views of the site. It's probably the funniest thing he's ever created after Ackbar. I mean, it even begins with the exact faces everyone who reads it should have.
My sediments exactly.
Now first of all, 90 percent of you guys right now are probably wondering “who or what in the blue hell is Youchew?”
I just explained it, buttmunch.
Youchew is a YouTube Poop based forum where members discuss and examine poops, poopers, techniques, sources. And conceptually, this idea is FUCKING GREAT.
Admittedly, I might be kind of biased here seeing as I am also a member of the Chew, and it is a great site imo. However, I'll try to not let my bias go too far.
If you didn’t catch on by now, YTPs are weird. Really weird. They’re so weird that it’s difficult to find other people who both enjoy and produce YouTube Poops, but since this is the internet, these people exist.
They're so weird, he hasn't even found an alternate adjective for them yet!
And for many years, Youchew was the site in which lovers of this emergent remix culture would congregate and exchange ideas.
“Hey guys, check out this new vidya I made”
“Woah dude, that’s really cool!”
“Hey! Check out this new dude I discovered, his stuff is great!”
Yes! Yes! Yes! This is fucking great! A place where people actually talk about these weird videos?
COUNT ME THE FUCK IN!
Wow, even when you're being serious, you're still sounding like a tool.
It’s important to note that while making this rant that I don’t hate Youchew.
Then why is this a RANT IN ALL CAPS
oh right it's to reference the leafy fiasco hohoho
I think it has always had the potential to be one of the greatest gifts to the YTP Universe. A place where people can openly collaborate and discuss ideas about YouTube Poops. You see, for the longest time, YTP has been one of the few things on the internet that is fairly well known, yet people rarely talk about it.
For the record, the first three results when you search for "youtube poop" in the YouTube search bar and have it set to the most viewed videos aren't even Youtube Poops at all. (DON'T DO THAT IF YOU'RE CURIOUS) It's extremely rare when a poop gets 3 million views, let alone 5.
YTP doesn’t really have a presence on popular sites like reddit or tumblr. If you want to discuss YTP with strangers on the internet, Youchew was really the only option.
>Youchew is the only option for anybody to even speak a lick of YTP
Well, uh, you go with that.
And therein lies the problem, because
It’s not a good forum
It’s not a bad forum
It’s THE forum for talking about YouTube Poop.
No other forum can talk about YTPs, apparently.
Other alternative forums have sprung up over the years however they all quickly died out, because for YTP forums, Youchew is the OG. It’s been around the longest, and it will be around the longest. It’s the only place to go to talk about YTP.
Except for simply okayillstop
And for many years, this was okay. Youchew was one of the most progressive places
and used to be THE place to find out the newest memes, the hottest new styles, sources, etc. I never actually had a Youchew account,
...wait, repeat that.
I never actually had a Youchew account,
...You made an entire rant on a website that you don't really go to.
I fear this is foreshadowing for what's to come.
but I would always read through the newest posts to remain informed on the current events.
Just to spoil things, he only looks at one subforum for all the examples you're going to see. The forum's no stranger to subforums, either.
But over the years, something profoundly changed with the Youchew forums. The site as a whole
"as a whole" is going to be operative throughout this rant. In actuality, this stuff only takes place IN the subforum he browses.
became a lot more cynical. Rather than accepting and promoting the newest sources and styles, a greater and greater majority of members began to mock them. Those who were once at the cutting edge of YTP techniques soon resembled grizzled veterans who were no longer willing to change with the times.
Or rather, they're referring to your style.
This started out as just a few people, however since many of them were some of the most popular and respected people on the site, their cynicism began to overpower some of the more progressive opinions of newer members. Now, this whole process happened fairly gradually, over the course of a few years. It was during this time when the general attitude of the site began to go downhill.
As in, including the parts of the site you don't even go on? I'd at least check out every part of a forum before I'd rant about their spoiled pickles or some other weird reason.
There is a psychological concept known as group polarization. It dictates that in a group of people, the general group opinions will gradually become more and more extreme through time. In the case of Youchew, this was due to a feedback loop of negativity. As the older members at the top of the site became more numerous, they began to influence the opinion of the younger members to share their cynicism for the newer YTP scene. Those who disagreed either left the forums or said nothing for fear of public humiliation from the older members.
Like how you're influencing your fans to believe your horse crap you wrote?
With each passing month, the Youchew forum discussion became more opinionated, homogenous, and inhospitable to new members. With fewer newcomers to change prevailing opinions, the old guard gained even more influence; and the cycle continued to the point where Youchew basically killed their own forums. Now, the once flourishing “poop talk” subforum resembles a shell of its former self. Whatever discussion happens there is sparse, for one because there are very few members left to discuss anything and if they do, they are all in agreement over the topic [considering anybody with dissenting opinions either doesn’t speak or has left the site] so whatever discussion there is falls flat on its face.
Ironically enough, people on YouChew were divided on this. In particular, they switched between providing simple feedback and just mocking it for all it's worth. To be an original, I do both.
Compared to the glory of what this site once was, the state of the Youchew forums in 2016 is a fucking tragedy.
Even though all the examples you're about to use for this are from 2015 or earlier.
And I witnessed all of this happen, slowly and gradually. Like watching a patient with a degenerative muscular disease slowly lose all of their mobility. But up until recently, I always maintained a bit of optimism over the future of the site, wishing that one day, it would turn around.
However, one prevailing theme within the modern Youchew forums soured my opinion on the site. I used to link people to the Youchew forums in my channel description. Something made me stop.
You realized you didn't want to chew poop anymore? (For reference, the site was called YouChewPoop back in the day)
“What?” you may ask? Well, it’s a long, complicated issue which I have pondered for quite some time now, and today, I’m going to try to explain it to you guys to the best of my ability.
Now, it’s important to note that for some time now, the Youchew forums and I have been at odds. The hostilities have been escalating for a while, and many personal gripes have remained unspoken until this point. However, after uploading my latest video, the feud has reached a point where it can no longer be ignored. Whether you consider this rant as burying the hatchet or burning the bridge is irrelevant; the point is that I am ending this unrest right here, right now so that I may finally be at peace with myself. With that being said, let me begin telling my personal story with Youchew.net.
The story of a site you didn't even make an account for, might I add.
As far as I could tell, in the beginning, the members of Youchew had a generally positive opinion of me. This was about the time when my channel began to initially excel in popularity in late 2013. Then, over the next year or so, I could see the general opinion of me change. Each successive time I was mentioned in the discussion, statements about me were becoming less and less positive, even though I felt that the overall quality of my work had stayed about the same. The Youchew opinion officially turned on me in mid 2015 after I uploaded Deep Frying Nemo. A video which, I remind you, I worked harder on than any video I had created previously. I tuned in to the forums shortly after uploading it and found a cast of Youchew members absolutely lambasting the video. There was not one positive review, not one person came to my defense.
I'm reading this paragraph right here as "I made a really fucking boring poop, but I worked hard on it, so nobody has the right to criticize it!"
Now, at this point, you’re probably ready to jump on my back saying how petty I am for now being able to handle the smallest bit of criticism. Let me get one thing straight, right now. I do not mind whether or not people criticize me, as long as you do so you conduct yourself in a respectful and informed manner. The people on those forums who criticized that video had every right to do so. If I were in a perfect world, everyone would like everything I produce, but I do not live in that world. Criticism is to be expected and I completely accept the idea of people criticising me.
However, that does not change the fact that the response I got on that website that day was completely disheartening. It was at this point that my entire perspective on the role of Youchew in the YTP scene completely changed. Keep in mind, this overwhelmingly negative reaction from Youchew was in complete contrast to a stunningly positive reaction from my general YouTube audience. I attempted to mentally account for this dissonance, and I came to the conclusion that at that point, the majority of Youchew forum members were really out of touch with the general YTP audience. But this is just the beginning. Not only has Youchew completely alienated the popular YTP scene, they have begun to openly reject and resent it.
So you say you'll take it when people are "criticising" you even though you say in the very next paragraph that you're depressed by it?
I'm, err, confused by this.
Consider this question: Which of the most popular YouTube Poopers over the past three years are also active Youchew members? Think about it.
I've seen Geibuchan, Trudermark, even WarlusGuy pop up on the forums and be active. There you go.
If you have observed the names on the front page of “YouTube Poop” on the YouTube search engine, guys like cartoonlover, Mobros, Trudermark, Awful Fawful, Master Poop, Numberer1, Poops4theWorld, Goop Videos and myself, NONE of these names are Youchew members, YET they have been at the forefront of popular YTP for years now.
I thought Cartoonlover said in a Q&A that he did have a YouChew account, he just never used it?
Also, as I just stated, Truder has a YouChew account, and so do Goop and Fawful.
But the real thing I have a problem with this bit, however, is that it indicates that to him, the most popular poopers are good. In fact, guess what the next paragraph attempts to do?
At this point, it is vital that you do not misconstrue what I am trying to say. I can already hear you thinking about how ignorant I am for thinking that a greater subscriber count indicates a better YouTube Pooper. This is NOT what I am saying. Read the last few lines over again, I have said nothing about the quality of these people’s poops. I am only argue with EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE that these YouTube Poopers have had the most views and subscribers out of anybody over the past few years, and it is a fact that NONE of them are active Youchew members. How can it be that a site which seemingly breeds new poopers could see NONE of them rise to mainstream popularity? There is only one explanation I can think of to support this evidence; and that is, whether they admit it or not, that the people of Youchew resent popularity and success.
"Yeah, I'm not judging things based on popularity. Instead, I'll judge a forum I never had an account on, using a single subforum, using mostly posts over at least a year old, about popularity."
There is one name that I left out of my list earlier, and that is the most well known pooper of all, cs188.
>The most well known pooper of all
Erm, there might be a flaw in that argument. People like WarlusGuy or DeeperCutt might one-up him in terms of influence? There's no doubt cs188 isn't influential, but he's not really that essential to understand Poops.
A person who took the popularity of YTP to unprecedented levels, spreading the joy and confusion of YTP to more people than ever before. Oddly enough, I found that he does have a Youchew account, but he stopped posting in June of 2014.
What made him stop? Oh, the same thing that happened to me. More Youchew people disrespecting him in spite of his enormous contributions to this community.
Oh hey, we're actually about to get a picture of what happens here!
Oh, you’re the number one most subscribed YouTube Pooper in America? Yeah, we don’t want you here. Keep making your shitty sex jokes you mainstream asshole.
This time that wasn't me with the caption. He's starting to become more annoying than his ear rape, now that I think about it.
But also, the fact that he has several likes on his post proves that it's just Stuart K. Reilly going on one of his tangents again.
They hate popular sources too. Clearly the most maligned source in the eyes of the Youchewers is a little television show by the name of Spongebob Squarepants.
Wait, isn't this a spongebob si
It’s actually kind of comical how much they hate this source, as I have witnessed multiple threads get shut down simply because the “fuck spongebob” circlejerk got out of control. I don’t give a fuck what you think, there is NO DOUBT that Spongebob is the most prolific YouTube Poop source of all time. I don’t care how much you fap to CDI or Adventures of Sonic the retarded Hedgehog. It is INDISPUTABLE that SPONGE BOB is the most recognizable and accessible YouTube Poop source in history. You can literally look up “Youtube Poop” in Google RIGHT NOW and “Youtube Poop Spongebob” will be THE FIRST autocomplete result. I never really understood people’s disdain for this source. One of the most popular cartoons of the early 2000s also happens to be one of the most widely used YouTube Poop sources. If you think about it, it actually makes PERFECT SENSE! Despite this completely logical summation, the people of Youchew believe that the little yellow Sponge is the scourge of the YTP world, and that any poop or pooper who uses the source should immediately lose all of their credibility for being a mainstream sellout. Never mind the fact that many of today’s YouTube Poopers grew up watching Spongebob (Including me!), and their first exposure to YTP was through the source of Spongebob (Including me!); Youchew will attest that Spongebob YTPs are all mediocre, and they are only made by view-grabbing whores.
1) It's a bunch of crock that YouChew "hates" SpongeBob. For the record, one of the highest rated videos of this very month, one that cracked the top ten of the Billboard type thing they have is a SpongeBob Poop.
2) SpongeBob isn't so much a "scourge" rather than just being hit-or-miss among the community.
3) You're using that popularity factor again.
4) You sound like a 9-year-old when your parents aren't looking with your writing. For someone who was perfectly calm at the beginning of this, you certainly are easy to piss off.
5) I thought that the CD-i cutscenes themselves were the most highly popular sources for poop?
That right there is five reasons why you need to improve your writing skills. Yeah, five. Five dollar. FIVE DOLLAR FOOTLONGS
In reality, Spongebob has only recently declined as a source in wake of heightened copyright claims and takedowns. Speaking of copyright, remember that day in 2015 when a bunch of popular YTP channels all got terminated in one DMCA onslaught? You want to know what Youchew’s response was to that?
Oh, good riddance. We don’t have to watch Spongebob poops anymore.
Again, that's not me.
Waymu responded to this rant by pointing out this:
As for Stuart, he was just being Stuart.
One of my friends in the YouTube Poop community, coolcat001100, has survived the most Viacom channel takedowns of any person I know. I think his channel was terminated 4 times to date, and each time he returned. It’s, frankly, pretty fucking amazing. He’s experienced with tackling YouTube copyright claims now, but it wasn’t always like that. One of the first times his channel was taken down, he attempted to seek help from our favorite forum Youchew!
Big mistake, Coolcat! That’s what ya get for making Spongebob poops, asshole! And oh, what do ya know? Coolcat is a popular YouTube Pooper as well! Who would have thought?
That's still not me.
This doesn't have anything to do with SpongeBob.
CoolCat actually has a pretty positive reception on YouChew if you look around.
He was kind of being a bit rude, I admit, but that's starting to stretch the truth a bit.
It’s also interesting to note that there is actually one mainstream pooper that the people of Youchew actually like, and that’s Awful Fawful. And considering the amount pure effort she puts into her videos, you would have to have a brain hemorrhage not to find them impressive.
I thought you said that she wasn't an example of a member?
HOWEVER, the forum still managed to piss her off to the point where she left and never returned. It’s a pretty funny story actually. For those of you who don’t know, Fawful is transgender and she identifies as a female. She changed the pronouns on here chewiki article to reflect this, the brilliant admins at Youchew decided to change them back to the masculine variants. (Not exactly the best decision).
As a matter of fact, Fawful was so insulted by this that she never returned! Congratulations Youchew, the only mainstream pooper you guys actually like now hates you!
For one, MassimoV isn't a mod. For seconds, look at the post count. She hardly even was a member. For thirds, the Chewiki page DOES use "she" and "her." For fourths, you're fat, wait for your stomach to tell you you're full.
The story doesn’t end here. As you can see, over the past couple of years, the people of Youchew have seemingly made it their duty to dodge any possible opportunity to ingratiate themselves with the popular YouTube Poopers. But how do they treat new poopers before they get popular? Well look no further than the case of one of my newest friends in the YouTube Poop community, Goop Videos!
Err, no, again, they don't care about how popular a pooper is before he/she poops.
I just realized how awkward bits of this are going to sound out of context.
You know, I actually got to meet him in New York City, and it was a really fun experience.
Truly, this is the greatest ship of our generation.
Oh by the way, big shout out to Waymu for your totally warranted and supportive comment!
Already explained the situation with Waymu above.
Another fun-loving Youchew regular I see! It feels great to be reminded of my crippling social anxiety in what should otherwise be a really happy moment in my life! What excellent class, exhibited by the legendary YouTube Pooper Waymu! LET’S ALL GIVE HIM A ROUND OF APPLAUSE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. MAN, I CAN’T STOP RUNNING INTO THIS OVERFLOWING YOUCHEW HOSPITALITY!
>crippling social anxiety
Along with taking that comment wayyyyy too seriously, you never mentioned until right now that you apparently were suffering from anxiety? We're two thirds in, for crying out loud.
We have another third left.
To continue, like any aspiring, up-and-coming pooper; Goop was attempting to gain some traction through none-other than the Youchew forums! I wonder how this turns out? (Have you been reading this rant?)
He made a few collab entries before he got bored, I guess?
That’s right! The kind people of Youchew absolutely shat on him to the point where he left the forum and never came back!
[had to use link because the sheer amount of dickish-ness would take up 5 pages]
>shat on him
What? All I see are people just having a bit of fun with questions. How is this being dicky?
And what did Goop do to deserve such caustic and sardonic responses? He… asked for questions on his Q&A.
Which was exactly what people gave him.
BIG MISTAKE YOU FUCKING STUPID IDIOT! Do you have any idea of the fucking legendary grounds on which you’re treading. Our old pal Stu has a question for ya!
Oh wow, way to we lcome the new forum members, Stu! It would seem that you SHOULD know “who the fuck” Goop Videos is, considering he has gained more subscribers in the past year than you have in your entire YouTube channel’s lifetime!
Well, he asked him something.
Okay, I admit, Stuart can be a bit of a dick at times, but he also makes fun of himself anyway, so I'm not really sure if he really means it.
But who am I to talk down to YOU? The great STUART KEEMSTAR REILLY, the legend, the genius, the indisputable, unequivocable authority on all things poop!
You can stop now, if you want to.
Frankly, I’m sorry it had to come to this. You know, I used to respect you, Stu, probably more so than any other YouTube Pooper. There was once a time when you produced some of the most cutting edge content in the world of YouTube Poop. To be completely honest, YTPNews was my absolute favorite series on this entire website. For years, whenever I saw a new YTPNews pop into my sub box, I would literally drop everything and watch it. It was THE series to discover new poopers, fads, and just interesting things. I used to always support you, watching everything you made. I’m sure if I look back in my channel history, I would not be surprised if I had given the greatest number of likes to your channel over ANYBODY else. I used to be one of the many young, aspiring poopers watching wide-eyed as you delivered your rants and sermons. In my eyes and along with many other people (trust me), you were a paragon of success, the only YouTube Pooper who could produce excellent YTPs while maintaining such a strong community presence.
Boring "we used to be friends!" stuff, moving on
In a way, you were the perfect bridge between the casual YTP fan and the more dedicated veteran. You taught us so many skills and techniques, and there is NO doubt that I would not be where I am today had I never discovered your videos. Using the very same ideas I learned from YOUR videos, I suddenly found myself climbing the ladder of popularity. Soon, I was a model for success in YTP, but through my entire rise, I never forgot my roots. I put you in my recommended channels box, I recommended my new fans to subscribe to you, I called you one of my biggest inspirations in my Q&A, I featured your videos in my top YTPs lists BOTH years. I did this because I felt that with your previous community contributions, you deserved ALL OF THIS. So do you think that perhaps, after all of my generosity, it would be too much to ask for you to at least maintain some sort of positive regard towards me? I’m not asking for a fucking medal, I am just asking for you to treat me with a little bit of goddamn respect, THAT’S ALL I EVER REALLY WANTED. But no, apparently that was too much to ask from you, because after I got popular you turned on me faster than a shark at the smell of blood. I guess it was too big of a request for you to be happy for my success, considering that YOU, YOURSELF INSPIRED IT.
He gave you acknowledgment of your March Madness thing from years back, so there you go.
But no, month after month I revisit the Youchew forums to see you posting shit like this:
He kind of has, now that I think about it.
This may be the most ironic thing I’ve ever heard in my entire life. You guys want to know why I’ve been spamming this phrase on my Twitter? Let me explain why. The sheer ridiculousness of this phrase has been bouncing around in my mind ever since I first read it. I mean, how do I even respond to this? “I’VE” been on a downward spiral. I AM the one who’s on a downward spiral? Have you taken a look in the mirror lately Stu? Remember how your news show used to be my favorite thing on the internet? Well, I honestly cannot name one news show in the past 2 years where I felt like it was worth my while. It’s all fucking negativity these days.
Oh, YTP is deeeeedd
All the kids are using the same sources
I don’t know anyone in YTP these daysI wish it was still 2010, back in the GOOD TIMES
I'm... utterly shocked. On one hand, you're acting... actually, not even like a 9-year-old while the parents aren't looking, a 7-year-old who accidentally discovered what the eef wurd was. On the other, you're taking this situation wayyyyyyyyyyy too seriously.
Is he seriously making a gigantic deal about YOUTUBE POOPS?
What an absolute insult to anyone who makes YTPs these days. And frankly, the fact that you are completely ignorant to the existence of ANY modern poopers, guys like NPCarlsson, guys like Jimmy Davis, the fact that you no longer want to make an effort to even give these poopers a chance MAKES ME SICK. Y’know Stu, there’s more fucking poopers in the world than Geibuchan, and I have nothing against Geibuchan, his poops are fucking excellent, but Stu, I am BEGGING you to actually try watching some of these newer poopers BUT YOU WON’T. You’ll just keep lamenting the idea that YTP is dead because people like WalrusGuy and Imaperson aren’t being talked about anymore. I would say that your head’s stuck up your shit, but (even worse), your head’s stuck in the past.
"Yeah, you. I hear you have an opinion. Fuck you."
Look Stu, I miss the old days too! Do you know how fondly I remember the days of SantaWithTeeth, BarneyIsPerverted and LinkonDrugs? Those guys were FUCKING AWESOME. But you know what? I accept the fact that they’re gone and they’re NEVER COMING BACK. You won’t find me waiting with bated breath for a new BarneyisPerverted upload in 2016.
You say you've been a big fan of Stuart and you don't know he could care less about Spongebob poops?
But you know what? That’s okay. People move on from YTP and NEW people take their place. If your favorite pooper retires, too bad so sad. Find a new favorite. There are PLENTY of names to choose from. But no, you sit sit there, and type, and complain, and ridicule anything that wasn’t made to fit in your little “golden age”. Face it Stu, you’re more washed up than New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
I don't know how you can compare a small-time video editor to a storm that killed hundreds of innocent civilians, but okay?
You, like Youchew, are out of touch with what people ACTUALLY like in YTP. And it should come as no surprise why that’s the case, because that “cynical Youchew old guard” I mentioned earlier is YOU. YOU’RE the reason why the site is a ghost town today. YOU’RE the reason why Youchew is stuck in time and refuses to embrace modern YTPs. YOU’RE the reason no new poopers ever stay on Youchew. I’ve seen it time and time again. Every time someone tries to bring up a new point of discussion, you’re always there with some snobbish remark to make them wish they never posted anything in the first place. And everyone else agrees with your shitty opinions because you’re STUART FUCKING REILLY, THE AUTHORITY ON ALL THINGS POOP.
is he really saying that nobody should ever have anything in common with somebody just because of his opinions
Wow, uh, there you go.
Look, I’m not really sure why I’m making this rant.
Neither am I.
It’s probably not for my subscribers, considering most of them have no idea what the fuck I’m talking about at this point. At most this rant is aimed at about 50 people;
Yet you hardly talked about anyone other than Waymu and Stuart.
so why would I, a channel of over 100,000 subscribers even bother making this? Well, I feel like what I have said in this video is something that should have been said a long time ago, just nobody bothered to do it. I thought my “We Need to Talk” video would be the end of me ranting like this, but I guess it turns out that a lot of the stuff I actually wanted to say in that video remained unsaid. I would like to apologize to you guys, my fans on behalf of that video. A lot of my anger which I directed towards you in that video was displaced from the sources which I outlined in this rant. Frankly, I have some of the best fans on the internet if they stuck with me after all the shit I said in that video.
Your fans certainly can take a lot. I can say that.
I know that some of you view me as this arrogant dickhead who only cares about his sub count, but that’s not how I view myself.
Well, may mileage vary.
Honestly… I’m just A GUY
who makes really stupid videos and then got really lucky where I somehow found myself with a shitload of subscribers. Did the success go to my head? Maybe a little at first, but now, I really really really really don’t care what people think of my videos. I’m just along for the ride, man. I don’t know what matters for the rest of you when making or watching YouTube Poops (I certainly don’t know what matters for people like Waymu), but for ME, YTP represents a mode of creative and ideological freedom that does not exist anywhere else on the internet.
Are you about to go David Bailey on our asses
Last month I graduated from high school, and I felt an unbelievable sensation of freedom. However three months before that, I figuratively graduated from taking YouTube Poop so seriously after my “We Need to Talk” video. The reason I’m making stranger videos more frequently is NOT BECAUSE I’M GOING INSANE, which a lot of you seem to think. I’m not crazy, I’m not depressed, I’m actually living a very happy and peaceful life.
Good for you
The reason my new videos are the way they are is because I have abandoned my inhibitions. Ironically, my ASCENDED video to which started all of this recent drama was made to celebrate the new state of mental freedom which I now possess In a way, I have “ascended” to an unprecedented level of enjoyment from these dumb videos.
I don't think I was confused at your videos for that reason?
I want YouTube Poop to be as successful as it can possibly be. It just so happens that the ascended video was actually reuploaded to Facebook, and it got 700,000 views in just a few days.
I'm... mixed on the idea that YTPs could become super popular. On one hand, it could lead to a frenzy that could make for a large mixing bowl of talent. On the other... a cesspool would better describe would could happen.
I don’t really care about it being freebooted or any popularity I may have gained or lost, what makes this so amazing is that 700,000 new people witnessed the insanity of YouTube poop. As much as Stu or Youchew would like to have you believe otherwise, there IS and audience for YTP.
There's so much of an audience, they forgot that the word "an" doesn't include a d at the end.
Most of them just haven’t found it yet. At this point, I’m just rambling. So what exactly is my point in this video?
There was no point
Well, in order for YTP to be as successful as it can possibly be, it needs a strong community. I feel like Youchew USED to fulfil this need, however in recent years it has served more of a dividing force than anything else. But contrary to most of what I’ve said in this video, I honestly believe that a lot of the members of Youchew are good people, they have just been held down by a broken system.
Yeah, all that talk about people sucking up to somebody solely because of supposed brainwashing into believing him to be royalty (supposedly, anyway) really wasn't meant, apparently?
I realized I may have upset a bunch of people on the site with my recent videos, and whether you forgive me or not, I just want to make sure you understand my side of the story. I just find it baffling how the general attitude of the site is simply not conducive to the overall well being of YTP. If only they would become more accepting of popular styles and sources, maybe new members would begin to return. Who knows, maybe Youchew can change. They probably still hate me though.
Ackbar Episode Three was nominated for best poop of the year at the Best Of 2015 thing, so there you go.
Oh well is right.
Anyway, I have the look on my face that could either mean I could laugh at this exceedingly or hunt Lemon down. Either would fit the mood. He's practically been flanderized about his videos. I feel like he really should seek out help or advice or something. He needs it.
Actually, forget it.
