Soft-social porn (let’s complicate, divide and analyse some more!)

1 Jun

Soo…

A friend of mine posted a link on my social-networking profile asking me (as I am a guru to all my friends) “Sensei, is this social porn?”

A dog taking a ''pooh'' blurs the edges of what's called entertainment! Remember in the future this is all anyone is willing to produce. No fiction. No beautiful lies. Just bland reality! It's cheap, it's easy and so every idiot in the world can understand. A dog taking a ''pooh''. That's life! That's relevant!

The video he posted was some nonsensical overproduced videoblog about everyday life to some irritatingly normal and fantastically uninteresting people. I won’t even bother posting the video as an example here as it’s horribly idiotic and will only advertise for it.

What fascinated me about that video (and many others) is that although it was boring as hell with no plot or meaning many people still watch them. Why?

Because it’s the new and exciting genre of soft-social porn.

The soft-social porn genre satisfies many of the same needs as regular social porn but has none of the bitter after tastes. We get to watch other peoples lives, that satisfies our voyeur nature, but don’t get any provocative information.

The one video I am now writing about, but I refuse to post here, had gotten 170.699 viewers, with lots of approval but was basically a video about a guy taking his dog out for a walk talking about I don’t know what and showing pictures of his dog taking a shit with a strategically edited composition.

And this brings me back to my favourite rant!

Humanism!

HOW THE HELL CAN YOU BELIEVE IN HUMANITY!

People are willing to watch a guy talking nonsense and watching his dog taking a dump and even APPROVE of it and YOU believe in humanity?

Blog 2.0 - May go far away. May go astray. But will always return one day... To how much it hates humanism!
