One of the best articles on the Internet of all time made its amazing debut only a few days ago. BuzzFeed users have watched the article grow in popularity. To best understand it the language and imagery used needs to be properly explored.
The piece begins with a clearly agitated Bevis from the hit sitcom “Beavis and Butthead”. With such a pained expression the picture tells a thousand words. Immediately following this is the author’s experience with BuzzFeed. Unfortunately for the author they are unable to get their computer to give them money. Most computers tend to give people worthwhile careers so they can advance up the employment food chain. Sadly the poor author appears to have a heavy salt addiction that is leading them into a premature death.
George W. Bush is shown seemingly out of nowhere. Like the 90s nostalgia with Beavis, George W. Bush is reminiscent of 00s nostalgia when everybody was enjoying being terrified. It was a simpler time when fear reigned instead of fear settling into its current VP status. From here the author explores the relationship dynamic between a video game enthusiast and a fictional character from one of his many video games. The relationship appears to be strained as the video game enthusiast wants to take things to the next level while the fictional character wants to remain just friends. With this particular picture the author advices the reader to ‘ignore’ yet the picture was included for a reason. Whatever the reason might be remains unclear.
Sad Batman follows. This is the crux of the author’s argument. Batman shakes his head sadly. If Batman is sad about the content, the author surmises, what chance does the average BuzzFeed reader have? Not included is a careful analysis of Batman’s favorite kind of BuzzFeed content whether Batman is more into “LOL” BuzzFeed articles “cute” “wtf” or “fail” among others. Exclusion of this important distinction makes it hard to fully evaluate the importance of Batman’s critique.
From there the author talks of how the article will go viral and make $100. This seems to be too small an amount for such a stinging rebuke of all things BuzzFeed. Even the dog captured in the rug seems to suggest that the article might become widely popular. Successfully finishing off the article with a “Log Off” GIF the author appears to be quite well-aware of BuzzFeed habits. Easily the best BuzzFeed article of all times, the author ought to continue peddling their anti-BuzzFeed sentiment on BuzzFeed.
Life is surrender. Plenty of forces are at work ensuring individuals deny the overwhelming joy that is the Earth. By focusing on the mundane the beautiful is rarely experienced. The people of the world surrender to things, to jobs, the passage of time, limitations, etc. After a certain point of development a person can realize all the limitations that were not really limitations simply fears. Unfortunately these fears prevent wonderful life-changing events from happening. Far too complicated to take on people must be content with living a life with blinders.
The past repeats itself to people reminding them of what they used to be. Drafted over the course of roughly eighteen years people try to understand what sort of adult they are supposed to be. Worldwide people are given years to figure it out what they believe in what is worth fighting for what isn’t. Enough experience eventually suggests that some things are worth the time depending on the temperament. Others aren’t. It can be hard to figure out what to disregard because there are so many things to potentially do. After a while it becomes clear what a person excels at and what really speaks to them in their own tongue.
Mortality exists in reality. Online everything becomes immortal. This is why people spend hours a day online trying to take it all in. Life through the Internet can be enlightening and at the same time confining. So much can be put into screens yet the screens screen. Actual real life experience is just as important the physical the visceral. What is real is what can be imagined for everything was merely a dream before someone gathered enough guts together to get it done. Reality is a strange beast itself full of television based off of it, scripted realities that force people to confront their own fictions in their own lives.
Writing tries to encourage the ability to become immortal. People write out of compulsion and people do it for free. Every so often a person gets paid for their words but curiously they may not be their best words. A poem is an advertisement for a person’s soul. Depending on the power of the poem it determines how hard of a sell they really are. Speaking the way a person writes feels awkward yet doing the reverse, writing the way a person speaks, is frowned upon in polite society. Thankfully a great deal of society is fully impolite ready to become an affront to one’s sensibilities.
Lots of things happen during a writing period. With the words to try to right the wrongs language can gain greater powers beyond those originally envisioned. Gradually language is adopted by people as their initial guttural utterances gain actual power beyond physicality. These things take time to fully form as people find what words work best for them putting their mind on autopilot and reacting appropriately to stimuli. Awareness of writing happens quite frequently like when the words finally come into their own discovering their own power.
Few create their own words. Usually they use whatever is laying around in their mind throwing pieces together to create vaguely aware sentences. Maturity lets the words gain deeper meanings. With the passage of time even simple language can gain heavy meanings far deeper than anything the original naked language could handle. Time gives naked language clothes to handle the winters of intellectual decay. Even the knowledge that this happens is not enough. People try to protect themselves against hurtful words a lack of having similarly minded individuals huddled around them.
The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Obviously there are many who need to lose weight. Those few really have managed to keep themselves looking svelte. When the eyes have it that means the truth can finally be seen for the first time, the beauty seen by the few.
I have noticed this whole thing has become a fad on Facebook. Opting to have this on both my blog and Facebook seems like a good idea. Note this list is not a complete list of everything I have ever read. This list was fairly hard to come up and as a result I have a few of my personal ‘asides’ about the books (no spoilers). Hopefully people will enjoy seeing what I consider to have been the most influential pieces of work on my mind.
ZOMBIE BOUNTY HUNTER M.D. is the philosophical treatise on zombies the world needs. In the not so distant future the world will probably be overrun by zombies and those who failed to watch this movie will fail at the most important task of all, survival. For zombie life is more than a bunch of silly weirdos putting on makeup and ‘hamming it up’ is a career. Thankfully for everyone there is a crew out in the wilderness doing whatever they can to garner the zombie hits.
A long while ago this wonderful film was shot on location at a budding zombie apocalypse, Idaho. From there the zombie movement has not spread because nobody in Idaho ever leaves ago. It is a place where dreams and brainpower goes to die. The intrepid crews behind ZOMBIE BOUNTY HUNTER M.D. are fully aware of this struggle between the rest of the United States and the dearth of thought coming from a state famous for potatoes, not people.
Good thing there is going to be a festival coming potentially to cities across the United States. The movie explores what people will do for hits like getting close to zombie attacks in an attempt to get those sweet hits. Online hits are everything. People feel the need to get hits, likes, comments, until they are full. Some people are never full. Instead some people opt to drop out of life and transform themselves into purely digital entities. Lots of people do this and it is an acceptable career path for plenty of people.
With great money comes great responsibility which is why ZOMBIE BOUNTY HUNTER M.D. is only asking for $5,000. That way they can take it seriously but not too seriously. Maybe they should take it more seriously seeing how they watched zombies eat brains firsthand. Sure they could have helped but that might have taken away a lot of the zombie realism they clearly go for throughout the film. In fact if they help anybody it would be those watching, to help inform others what do it in case of a zombie attack.
Can ZOMBIE BOUNTY HUNTER M.D change the world? Is the world a better place with this movie in existence? Yes is the obvious answer. Less obvious is the importance of bringing this movie out to the masses. If this motley crew of film makers gets their money they can help educate America’s youth to be vigilant of the inevitable zombie apocalypse. And for $5,000 they can save the world via the power of cinema.
