I’d like to think I have a reasonable take on what can become popular and what can’t.Â But if there’s anything the internet has taught us, it’s that no one ever completely knows.
I think it’s safe to say that after the “Leave Britney Alone!” video, the internet had become a much less safer place for all of us.Â I mean if that dude can be popular for a week then I think anything can.
Still though, there are some phenomenons I can’t quite get a grip around.Â Here are 5 of them….
Let me start off by saying that I have the utmost respect not to mention jealousy for the Cheezburger Network. They took an idea, ran with it, and never looked back.Â Â But what the hell?Â Pictures of Cats with captions spelled wrong?Â I have no idea this turned into a network that does over a BILLION page views a month but again, more power to them.Â Â The internet is proof you just never know what will stick.
I get what memes are but I don’t understand why they’re so popular.Â Further proof that I have no idea what’s going on with the internet.Â Â Remember the whole Keanu Reeves sad face meme?Â People just plastered his one sad looking face picture onto a zillion others.Â This happens over and over with just about anything.Â Â I get it and all but Jesus it’s just way too popular.
Someone please explain that to me.Â Please.
OK I get what Cosplay is.Â Â I just find it ludicrous that the world goes nuts when they think of something as “Cosplay” and not just use the word Costume?Â I mean all it is is dressing up and wearing costumes but because it’s the word “Cosplay” gamers all around the world flock to this stuff.Â I just don’t get it.Â It’s costumes!Â That’s it!
Virtual World Games
Games like Second Life or even World of Warcraft are taking over reality.Â It’s quite sad really.Â Â Number one, people are actually cheating on their spouses by meeting people from these games.Â Number 2.Â Â These games are taking up WAY too much of people’s time.Â Number 3?Â A guy sold a virtual piece of land for a real $600,000 this year.Â Â I have no words….
