"Kai the Hatchet-Wielding Hitchhiker: Why did we love him?"

More cogitation about instant YouTube stars of the lowly outsider kind — this time from Monica Hesse of The Washington Post. There are a lot of words here, but I don't think she makes any progress in the long-running game of Understanding the Internet. Her musings peak with: "It’s the issue of our responsibilities as viewers and our awareness of the latent toxicity in what we consume."

Our awareness of the latent toxicity in what we consume... hmm... yeah... suddenly I am aware of... why am I slogging through the verbal mush of another Washington Post column? What am I doing to myself?!

Like that, you mean, Monica?

Sometimes love is blind.

It's a little simpler from my point of view: Our lives are given meaning by what we pay attention to.

The meaning of our lives doesn't come from something outside of ourselves - it's what we pay attention to.

So yeah, watch what you give your attention to.

We didn't love him, we loved what he did. And now some douche reporter needs to misunderstand to justify her disdain for others.

Yes toxic places are toxic. Lefties here know this and sometimes it's not worth risking being contaminated.

Lefties bring their toxicity with them and then whine about it. Grow up.

"Marshal, you are a tremendous douche, I hope you get cancer and die.

Titus, you are a gay douche, I hope you get super aids and die."

You're mistaken Inga. That's LEFTIES that bring the toxic.

It doesn't seem to have effected me. Was I supposed to wallow in my martyrdom or do you have some sort of trademark on that move?

Righties: We are clean I tell ya!

Lefties to rightes: OK, but what is that green glo around you, it smells toxic.

Isn't it revealing that in your fantasies the lefties never inspect themselves?

Who is this "we" you refer to that loved him? I thought Kai was a kook the minute I heard him.

Methadras said...

Smash, smash, SUH-MASH!!! Too bad this clown didn't get to you Inga. That would have been fun.

Kai reminds me a bit of Charles Manson: charismatic, diminutive, and murderous. I think society just dodged a bullet.
