I am enjoying youtube?

Haha wtf, I have just been reading through the comments on the EZJ video and I realised that's the first time I have really been into the development and the reception of a video on youtube in AGES. I am really excited about getting the images in (over 50 so far I think!) and some are so cool!

I think I have felt a bit bored with youtube because I feel like I know what to expect with it now, but this video has shaken things up a little. Sure a bunch of people have said they are unsubscribing. Big fucking deal! I am never going to 'win' at youtube, I know that, and I don't even want to win at youtube! It's just my competetive streak that balks at Molly and Charlie going infront of me as they have.

I expected the video to get more views, in all honesty, but I am ok that it hasn't cause that means I get less entries to have to deal with!

I am kind of sad that CharlesTrippy did a video called 'I can make you yawn' which I don't know, but I would wager that he was inspired to make by my 'Dare' video, which is ok, but he coulda said something or attributed it or posted it as a response. But then again... I was a real bitch about his proposal video so fair play.

Makes me wonder if you're addicted to Youtube or your fame, if those who accuse folks like you of being egoists or attention-ho's are right...

The EZJ thing is stupid and freaky. Heck, I'm a guy. And everyone knows guys let hot girls get away with a lot. But, your nerdiness isn't as attractive as it used to be.

Less gimicks, more videos please.

I highly doubt that my painting is going to win, because i did it in 1 and a half days, but if I did? I would pretty much piss myself. I've never been one to care much about "celebrities," and your really not even a celebrity, but I pretty much worship you.

JustJordan said...

wow, that guy above me is a reall dick. He could at least have the guts to show who he is.

You say you dont want people to leave hateful or mean comments but then you go out and create this "zombie jesus" competetion which many would consider to be a very hurtful gesture. Honestly, Protestants and those who believe in Jesus should not attack you, I'm truly sorry they do, but can you really blame someone for being upset over it all. It's a natural reaction. You say you dont care, and of course you certainly dont have to care one bit; but the people who like watching your videos tune in every week because they enjoy your honesty and creativity, and they expect that if you wish to be controversial, you will do so with respect. You recent actions mimic what others have done in history to persecute those of a different religion. If you specifially look at the story of Jesus, after being beaten severely, he wore was forced by Pontius Pilot to wear a crown a throwns. The Romans wanted to make fun of those who had said he was the King of the Jews. You see in Jesus's story he walked to his grave while being mocked, laughed at, and disgraced. Thats why people hate this competition. Paperlilies, I'm sorry that Christians have attacked your posting, but please be more considerate next time.

I posted my ZJ video this morning on YouTube and its rubbing a great deal of people in the wrong direction. It seems the idea of Jesus being anything else but a figure of a divine origin is messing with the minds of a good majority. I don't tend to hurt people or be mean on purpose, nor do I want people to feel I am wanting to disrupt them in any way, but Zombie Jesus & ideas like him that seem to disturb people, bring out such things as aggravation & other negative thoughts. At the same time these sorts of "aggravations" are in very large way highlighting fears & weaknesses of people. Over all when I read the peoples comments about Zombie Jesus, I get the idea that, no matter how advanced we think, we as earth people are, we still have great deal of leaning & development to accomplish. Zombie Jesus only represents "change" & if you fear "change" there is no advancement in our methods of understanding the universe around us.

Fair game my ass. He took your idea.
The fact that he's popular is reason enough to be bitchy.

roygbiv said...

er, my bad; Albert's idea.

Probably not as many entries because people tend to avoid controversy. Religious and political opinions are going to stir things up. Wars are fought over such things.

I was going to submit something, but I've been super busy.

Hema said...

ive been meaning to make something...its noot even that im that busy.. im just a lazy asshole.. oh well

manyonerise said...

I wouldn't worry about it much, you're an extremely bright woman, and I'm sure Jesus has a sense of humor anyway. hehe! :D Jess

People aren't offended enough these days. They need to be offended more often. It's good for them. Today's society treats everyone like delicate little desert flowers who will wilt under the slightest criticism or insult.

Zombie Jesus is not as bad as some caricatures I have done on this subject..... If this contest would have been about a non-Christian god, the reaction would have been much less then it was on Youtube.....

I can’t wait for the contest posting...

Johnston13 said...

BTW Paperlilies.... I just read the about me section on the side bar of your blog... and I was so expecting to hear one of those gavel clangs from the beginning of Law & Order : Special Victims Unit

This is my blog.
((Clang clang))

I would've like to make a postcard of Jesus tra-la-la-ing through a meadow with pink and blue bunnies with chocolate eggs popping out of his but but don't have time to commit to that.

Anyway, you should drink Trippy's milkshake then beat him over the head with a bowling pin.

Some people post anonymously, because it's an option offered by the website, and because they don't want some paperlilies-obsessed fan with adequate computer skills to cause trouble for them. Sure they could leave a name, but how would you know it's real?

Seriously, I think the EZJ was just bad taste, and because it's a contest, will only have a bigger impact.

Think about your Partner's income, paperlilies, to be serious for a moment. If you start pissing off advertisers, YT might dump you.

I'll still watch your vids, minus the EZJ, but I've unsubscribed as a matter of principle. I hope you understand. You DO make great vids.

ZombieJesus said...

Ehh, I enjoy art, but I'm none too great in the field, anymore, unless it's written art, video, or something I really get into(mostly painting, actually)... I rushed my project for this, but I had fun trying it. That's all that really matters. Furthermore, I'm so glad you have found some excitement out of youtube again. That's very good to hear, Bryony! Hope you do well in your future Youtubian endeavors!
