weirdest part of being famous if i became it would definietly be the tumblr&twitter media analysis and/or gifset maker girls having my face just like.. as their icon. part of their page theme. i find that so odd
as someone who ocd symptoms r triggered often online i like, dont rlly believe in mass trigger tagging. i don’t mind doing it for mutuals or to prevent physical shit like seizures or whatever but like. it doesn’t do me good to tape around every single piece of my life that increases my compulsions. n if my symptoms r too much, i just unfollow the stressor, bc online spaces r customizable. like. idk. my heart raced n my chest tightened for yrs when i wuld hear heavy footsteps on the stairs bc of my dad. but like. i can’t ask ppl to cut out completely neutral part of their lives, like, walking. i’m going to hav to deal w those stressors eventually anyway. i feel like trigger tagging is a helpful step to take @ a time in ur life, but ur motivation shld always b to find a way to control ur response to th exposure, rather than the exposure itself - bc that’s like. actually possible lol.
Answered one of those youtube mini survey things anddd
I just realized that Twitch > youtube clip channels has basically democratised* the process of making a youtube video. Streamers basically do the filming portion of the video, live on their channel, and clip channels take the content and edit it down to the funny parts and post them online.
Anyone with some editing software and too much time can just swoop in and edit, and entire ecosystem has been created. U have those clip channels which clip immediately after the stream, those channels which compile clips together and meme channels which make significant edits for memes.
*By that I mean for example in the past if you needed a hotel u'd go to a hotel with a big corporation, but now with airbnb anyone can come in and set up a hotel in their house without having to go through gatekeepers. Or a better example would be spotify, where you no longer need to impress record labels to make music, anyone can do it.
actually it was INCREDIBLY funny in the past when they just did not label what was in boxes of chocolates and then a significant percentage of it had.... nuts.....valentine’s day russian roulette
