I know most people would ask why would anyone want to be a laughing stock town fool of the internet? But way back to childhood days, the only options I ever had were to be an ignored quiet mouse or a loud wacky cartoonish entertainment monkey. Mouse or Monkey thats it. And so I became a local celebrity of my school days. Sometimes I would get resentful that they were laughing at me, not with me, mocking me, teasing making fun. Like the lolcows of the internet. But after trying to be serious in college, and just being totally ignored, I realized that attention beats isolation, and its the only means of socialization I know. For the last few years I've retreated back into my mouse role, and have had almost no human contact. 95 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
Its just seems like the cringe lolcow role of the internet, is basically like being the local clownish celebrity that I spent my whole school years being. Its a way to turn the strange weirdness into a commodity. I see folks who are less weird and less comedic getting audiences of millions. Maybe I could do it. Although I have the flaw of speaking in a way thats so cringey its boring, rather than so cringey its hilarious. But it just seems like my old weirdo class clown cartooning but with an audience of millions. Maybe it was my calling.
And then some of these guys actually make money on this shit through youtube ads and patreon, being a cringe is literally their full time career.
Nope, because that will be hell for me.
The fact that this place might be one saddens me
>>159595> There was some fat German neckbeard who made youtube vids about heavy metal and was stalked by a group of people claiming they were going to kill him.
That's Drachenlord, the german version of Chris chan. Thing is he took the trolling too far because he profits from it, he's in thr middle of being a normgroid and cringe. He wrote a book and has even a pornhub account where he uploads videos of himself fucking plush dolls, inserting stuff on his urethra, etc.
i think i have nearly been an inverse lowcow (if that is even possible) kek
it was the usual bullying, lying, stalking, etc… but i think it was MOSTLY due to politics. because i didn't had to change anything about my (non cringy) behavior, and i've been vindicated on everything i've ever said since then
people really really really hated me. it was really hilarious attending college and having everyone think that i was so dumb that i was worthy of contempt, and yet the reality was that i was better than everyone in that shit, but they just couldn't possibly realize that.
there was a dude that i'll never forget. he spent months and months throwing tantrums at me and i'd just ignore him, and then during a final test (that bailed him) he peeked over my test and noticed that one of his answers was the same as mine, so later when discussing about that with someone he said "even a retard can get that right", and little he knew that everything else on his own test was wrong cause he was indeed a retard. god that was so priceless.
but apart from funny shit like this. getting gratuitous hate is really annoying, that place was just too insufferable. you got to be a literal retard and have your brain in shutdown mode not to be affected by it in a negative way. being a public figure without all the perks of a real celebrity is a huge no no
>>160093>i think i have nearly been an inverse lowcow (if that is even possible) kek>i think it was MOSTLY due to politics
Dude you're a turbo lol-cow, nothing inverse about it
nah by definition i'm not. no one wastes their time doing any of that shit anymore. i don't exist to anyone
things completely changed
>>159816> anyone covering his retardation with the 'this is how you don't play' vids are lifeless losers
Yeah anyone who obsesses over lolcows like that are probably just as much of a loser
I guess anyone can become internet famous if you make yourself a local clown in an existing online community.
Some of my online projects are "famous" at least by viewcount and mentions. Its not directly tied to my IRL persona. But idk if tying it to the real identity of a fat NEET with glasses would add anything to it. Maybe my fame is meant to be anon. Live through the project not my stupid given name.
>>159807>Be a Christian baker>Going about my life happily>Gay guy comes in after going to fifty other shops first>"Can you bake my wedding cake?">"No, sorry that's against my religion but you could try these other shops, they're really good too">Complete shit storm erupts because you tried to live your life peacefully in accordance to your belief>End up in court multiple times with constant media smear campaigns
Yea this would NEVER happen. There clearly isn't a huge group of people on a constant witch hunt for others.
>Be into pheasant shooting>Go to shoot with some friends for a nice day out in the country>Bunch of antis turn up>Start trying to provoke people into fights or running in the way of people with loaded guns>Police refuse to remove them>Antis follow some people home>Try attempt to kidnap their dogs a few days later
Yep, never happened, not even once. Not a problem.
>Be an indie game dev>Working on a little game>Asked a question about trannies>Say you don't believe you can change your sex through hormones and surgery>immediately get bile spewed at you for years and outcast
These things happen you shut in retard. I once had someone try to dox me because I didn't like gay fanfics shitting up a forum.
wow, do you really expect me to reall all your greentext, you nigger?
Nail on the head.
I read your greentext, anon. Let me say that you could've gone on a lot more than that, and with much more 'mundane' people.I haven't heard the pheasant shooting story, though.
>>160261>Can't read>calls other people a nigger
Those stories aren't about random neets minding their own business being harassed, all of them are motivated by some action some normalfag took.
Animal rights faggots have been doing this for decades now. They try to bait shooters into attacking them so they will get assault charges and lose their gun licenses. >>160266
Not everyone's a NEET. And there's NEETs who get harassed too. Chris Chan wasn't asking for the shit he got just making stupid autistic sonichu videos.
Though, in my original post I believe I was talking about neets just minding their own business. Also, chris chan is a legitimate retard that pulls idiotically funny antics constantly, it's pretty clear why people follow him.
I was always the laughing stock of my group but I accepted it because it was either this or having no friends whatsoever
I know the only reason they hang out with me was because they could feel better about themselves and have someone to shit on who won't talk back
>>160260>These things happen you shut in retard.
Its clear you identify more with public normies who share your views, than with the Wizard lifestyle.
I'd off myself if I had to endure what some of these lolcows have to endure from groups like KiwiFarms. I just want left alone honestly. Most of the people they document are failed normalfags and wizards that don't have enough self-awareness to watch what they say online. I don't really feel bad for them, but I wouldn't want to be in their shoes.
Is it possible to make $30,000 a year being a lolcow?
apparently weird YouTubers can certainly make some money.
I am kind of a local lolcow. It brings nothing but negativity, harassment and bullying. No idea why anyone would want that. This will not stop until I am dead.
"What should I talk about, how should I say it? I don't know. This was how I happened to invent my clowning… I was aware only of my own unspeakable fears and embarrassments. Before anyone realized it, I had become an accomplished clown, a child who never spoke a single truthful word."
That was touched on in the first few chapters of no longer human by Osamu
Chris basically lives on donations from trolls.
Last time I checked he was on disability.
Thread should have ended here.
Do you think I could make a career being a public spokesman Aspergers advocate? Speaking at conferences, being an Aspie talking head when they need an insider perspective
Feels like there's already a crowded market for that sort of work. Whenever I look for new autism-related material online I see a lot of aspies trying to do that.
Is it possible for lolcowing to backfire?
Is it possible for it to do anything else but backfire?
Do not mistake Chris Chan for a simple internet clown/sonic autist/whatever the fuck. The reason why sixteen year olds give him their mommy's money is because they see him as an "internet god" aka someone that's been on the internet way longer than him. No bullshit, every modern Chris Chan comment section has at least one hundred threads about how he's a "meme legend". Also, the reason Chris was so popular to begin with was because there were several trolling skype/irc groups and even websites such as the PVCC forums and the /cwc/ imageboard orchestrating every post-2008 youtube video of his
um because I'm not good-looking enough and would have to stick things up my ass
I'm not gay, so I don't get off sticking stuff up my bum
Glad I'm not the only one who wanted to be a wrestler.
I did not. It's stupid.
I didn't know what wrestling was
This seems like a path to easy cash. What are some communities its easy to become a lolcow/ local celebrity in?
RotW seemed like an eccentric character but unlike a lot of lolcows actually seemed pretty decent deep down.
>>152863>chris is the only one who understands how the game works
Top kek, gets me every tiem
While true that attention > isolation as a kid, i wouldn't like my whole adult life to be documented to everyone on the internet on places like Kiwi Farms, specially having someone e-mail my workplace and family about my autistic antics.
At best i think i'd like to be like one of those people in shows like Totally Obsessed collecting specific shit
Ten grand she's a lesbian
whats the quickest way to become e-famous?
I remember there was a janitor that like to put himself inside big balloons and post them on youtube. Students at the school he worked at got wind of this and notified his normie supervisors and got him fired. I have no idea what he is doing now.
>>172282>to put himself inside big balloons
Like get inside one or ride one?
I've been thinking up schemes to become e-famous. the morons who do it make it look so easy.
I've become much more honest and realistic with myself in realizing I suck.
But I guess the last pillar to fall is to admit that I'm boring, not interesting, exciting or funny. I feel like Im but thats just because I'm me. Even on Wizchan I can't match the wit of a funny green text reply. So even if I did hatch some scheme to get eyes on my content. I don't have any content worth watching.
During my time online I have come across some E famous individuals and usually they are interesting in some way even if it is people enjoying how fucked up they are.
Why do you want to become known wiz?
Why do you think you are boring and can you communicate well with others online?
If you have social skills then in reality it does not matter how little you actually do in life because you an talk to others and share your perspective which people can enjoy.
I guess i want to be famous so it feels like i existed before i die.
I dont think I communicate well online. even wiz-types seem to find online friends. But I always feel like the odd man out even on e-communities.
>>174349>I guess i want to be famous so it feels like i existed before i die.
I am surprised you did not say it is so you exist after you die and seek fame as a form of death denial.
Communicating is a skill you can hone :)
Would you like an online friend wiz?
Even wiz types wont generally be accepted by e communities but they can find others highly appreciate their perspective and gain respect that way.
Do you ever use omegel? it is peak normalfag but you could train your social skills there or even elsewhere.
What would you like to be famous for wiz?
>>152948>It's a lot of effort to be a lolcow. One thing all entertaining cows have in common is that they are prolific content creators. CWC claims to have invented sonichu around 2000, and he wasn't even noticed til around 2004. That's 4 years of making terrible content, plus nearly 15 more years after that to keep the internet interested in him.
I've been thinking about this 2018 comment. Its true. Any project to produce content and try to be e-famous. If you just look at it from an economic cost-benefit analysis, its not a rational investment or gamble. You're putting a ton of energy and effort and hours into something that has only a slim chance of attracting an audience, much less enough of an audience to financially sustain you.
So really if you're doing it from a cynical pragmatic view, its just not worth the effort. Its only worth it, if you have a genuine passion for it. And then maybe its not all for nothing and you get lucky. But you enjoyed it even if it was for nothing and nobody.
