I went to watch a movie last night. The Noob is a big movie buff and haven’t yet seen No Country for Old Men. Since it was Saturday night, the ticket window was jam packed with people. I looked at the marquee and noticed a lot of the new movies were complete crap. So i figured most of these people lined up were going to watch these crappy films. I head into the theater and sure enough, all the people were lined up for Meet the Spartans and other shit movies.
Box office hits usually are the crappiest films. Generally speaking, the films that make the most money are giant commercials. They are able to attract huge masses of idiots to the theater cause they market the hell out of it. Spiderman 1, 2, 3, 4. Rambo 1, 2, 3, 4. Scarymovie 1, 2, 3, 4. And now Rambo. These are all the same movies. They just repackage the same old shit and give it to the audience. They cross promote spiderman with toys and cereal boxes and we become brainwashed. They get paid cause of movie goers are brain dead idiots. Same with blogging. Most of the popular blogs are pretty aweful. It’s not just the make money blogs either. I respect how the blogs were able to get popular, but it wasn’t cause it good. Probably just timing and luck. I respect luck. I’d rather be lucky then good anyday, but we can’t control luck, so we have to focus on being good. Anyway…
Perezhilton sucks. Just a few celeb pics with one caption? It’s like abstract art. Any idiot can do it. Icanhascheezburger. Same thing, a few cat pictures with one caption. I guess it’s really important to know your audience. And they are probably idiots. Cause generally speaking, most people are.
Look at the state of American media. TV is dominated by “reality TV” I don’t know why people are drawn to fat people losing weight or models competing to become a supermodel. And all of these dating shows…come on! But people love it. Movies, i mentioned above about the quality of recent movies. Complete crap. Internet, look at the most popular websites. It’s social networking sites. Myspace and facebook are filled with idiots posting pictures of themselves and boasting about how great they are. Why are we letting 12 year olds dominate out media. Why is it that the majority of people in the states think like 12 year olds. Maybe cause after a hard days work, you just want to be distracted. You don’t want to think or reason after 8 hours of pushing paper.
I think you should think about this when you’re setting up a blog. Don’t make it too smart. People won’t like it. You have to dumb it down a bit for your audience. If what you write makes too much sense, people will click away. So try to flash it up. Put some bling. Show some tits. Say cunt and Mo Fo alot. The 12 year old brain loves it. Sell over priced stuff. Create hype.
All you need is one hit. If you get one website to go big time, you’re set for life. You can keep making money off of that. Every website you set up, you can reference that big 100k check. Next time you go to the theater, look at how many idiots are waiting in line. Are you one of those idiots? If you are, it’s ok, you’ll probably make more money then the smart people. And that’s what it’s all about right?
