Sitzen ein oder mehrere Wipfe in einer Lore, so kann man sie ueber den Rand der Lore hinausschauen sehen.

I remember laughing about the earlier gaming garbage videos with funny Lowtax and funny Shmorky and lots of sploishing and making fun of strange, cheap "horror Games".

Then Shmorky became an unhinged cartoon, over the course of a few months?
...
...
And now Lowtax talks and shouts over several minutes of cheap horror movies as "intro", making sure that nobody accidently sees any value in his current productions?
....
...
what exactly happened on that front?

I think the cheesy horror movie intros were a thing earlier on too, if only sporadically.

It is a shame how things turned out, some of the earlier Gaming Garbage stuff is funny. The review of Beestmeel comes to mind. But even back then I always thought me and my old roommate with a bottle of rum could come up with better banter than this guy who runs a comedy website.

My son is in first grade and there are kids in his class telling stories about slenderman and at breakfast he tried to tell me about slenderman and how he was real, and was adamant as I failed to convince him that slenderman is 100 percent not real, unequivocally provably made up and Dad knew because he was there witnessing the literal birth of the slenderman legend in real time on this thing called a thread on an internet bulletin board no not like reddit you have to pay ten dollars no not like fortnite you write your own responses to a subject that is posted by the op no its not youtube comments jesus

Richard,

It seems I have underestimated your ability to fail. For that, I apologize. Not to you, but to the people who would enjoyed seeing me tearing your little world apart just that much more. Itís a shame, really, that you ignored all of my warnings. Perhaps, if you had just a few brain cells left that werenít circling the bowl, you would have realized how pointless and counterproductive this whole thing was and quit a long time ago. This little venture of yours has failed on every level. On a personal level, for example, have you noticed that the very people you profess to hate have infested your site? They are utterly devoid of reason, their minds deluded with lies and ignorance. Their perceptions are hard-coded in a language they will never understand. Yet, these empty shells have flocked here, and whatís even more amusing about it is, they emulate you. Theyíve taken the worst things about you, namely your personality and humor, and twisted it into something far more repugnant than even you are capable of being. One bad joke becomes one thousand hideous hybrids, and it spreads like a virus. This is your audience, Richard, and they love you. That isnít very important, though. I am sure you donít care, as long as theyíre lined up at the trough. What is important, however, is this.

I would guess that you take as much enjoyment as anyone might at seeing these ridiculous business models fail like the insane fantasies they were. The pseudo reality of Internet commerce has finally been perceived for what it is, and the only people left are those who were lucky, smart or both. Now, being exposed to so much talk of this, for what, like over a loving year now, have you ever stopped to consider how you ever came to the conclusion that a parasite like yourself could possibly hope to survive in this environment? The corporate tit is gone, and you are completely incapable of surviving on your own. You think these failed companies had stupid business models? How about yours? I knew the advertising market was going to collapse years ago, because itís based on the assumption that banners are effective. Think about it.. You are entirely dependant on advertising.. yet, the people you try to attract are people who arenít going to click on, let alone buy whatever stupid crap that is being advertised. I am sure most of the clicks you have gotten have been sympathy clicks. Did you actually think that it was going to last forever? Everybody knows it doesnít loving work, and most sites have to beg their readers to click, just to pay the server bill. Did you think corporations werenít going to notice that no one was buying their products? Youíre an idiot, Richard, and I sincerely mean that. The contemptuously stupid decisions you made regarding the various networks you joined donít matter at all because the entire idea was flawed from the start. Enjoy your last moments as a free man. Youíll soon be shovelling poo poo for the rest of your life at some nameless corporation, a vacant look forever etched upon your face.

Years from now, when youíre no better off than when you started, when it finally hits you that itís all been nothing but a wasted lie, think of me. Think of me, Richard, and when you do, realize that I was the only beacon of logic and truth in this sad menagerie. You seem predestined for failure, however, so I doubt there is anything one can do for you. Just remember, when the joy is gone, when youíre clawing at the boundaries of your little world, you always had a choice.
