I just read this post from Coulton. Some sweet girl posted a fan video for “Still Alive“ on Youtube and it made the blogosphere rounds this week. Of course, as soon as someone shares a piece of there self with the world, the shitbags come out of the woodwork to scare them back into their insecurities.
Where’s your thing that you made and put online for everyone to see, you chicken-shit cockhole? …
So it drives me nuts to see people lobbing bullshit negativity into the crowd – if you don’t like it, don’t watch it. And if you don’t have a piece of yourself to contribute, keep quiet. The rest of us are working here.
God damn right. Where is your contribution? Where did you post the little piece of your soul that I may skull fuck it to death?
I mentioned yesterday about getting hateful comments on Digg. It comes with the territory. Create something and share it with the world, then dive into a hole and hide from the backlash. Denizens of the internet are generally hateful toward everything they don’t absolutely love. What happened to “it’s not for me,” or “I have different tastes.” No way, man. It’s all “die from 1000 cancers” this and “suffocate on your own cockandballs” that. Calm down internet. Not everything is a fight. Walk away from the sites, and songs, and comics you don’t like just like you would change the channel on TV (without going to the producer of the show’s house and throwing lit shit baggies at him). Learn the difference between “I dislike…” and “I want the person that made this to feel pain and sorrow.”
Is there a kinder, gentler internet out there for us? This commenter has the right idea:
The honest truth is, these “haters” that rip people to shreds for trying to do something are the same people that want SO BADLY to post their own song on Youtube, or their comic online. Alas, they are far to afraid to deal with the scorn from people JUST LIKE THEMSELVES! The snake eats its own head, entropy reverses, the universe explodes and Data, Riker, Crusher, Geordi and Troi are right back at that card game with a nagging feeling of deja vu.
This post was so fucking stupid that I want to puncture your right eye with a corkscrew and skull-fuck you to death, you shit-sucking waste of cock-juice.

Hijinks Ensue? More like Hijinks Ensuck! Fuck your mother.
That was the original title of the comic.
The “Fuck your mother” part, I mean.
Well said, Joel! We should all stand up for the people who have the guts to produce cool stuff and share it with the world. 🙂
Thanks, Alex. And honestly, it doesnt even need to be cool. Just do something. Anything. Be special. Fucking FEEL special. That should be the message we universally plaster on the world’s youth. Not “don’t ever do anything because they’re all gonna laugh at you.”
Cruelty is so web 1.0.
this is cupcake, the girl in the video thank you all for the moral support 🙂 i will never give in the the haters don’t worry as long as those who like me stick with me 🙂 thank you so much
Id like to also mention, making this amateur video i never though someone would pick it for their top 12, it was an amateur video like the million on youtube, i though it would be stuffed in the deepest youtube corners 🙂 so i just wanted to say thank you
Hey Hey! Glad to see you have the right attitude. Keep it up and ignore the losers that cant get off their asses and do something they can be proud of.
