Thought DiS would want to know.
you know who i mean
Seriously - I'm asking for help here.
slave away posting on DiS perhaps?
I fully deserve my place in the cyberspace abyss.
I think I find myself irked by what to me appears to be nothing of import generating $$$ and stardom, but that's likely jealously on my part.
For example has anyone reading this post sucked him off? Yeah, you.
on Sean not even making top 50 of who's seen most action off this site.
If anyone doesn't follow Cara Ellison's stuff on the likes of RPS or Eurogamer, then you really should. The S.exe column on RPS is great, and the embedded journalism she's just setting out on looks like it could be the most galvanizing thing to happen games journalism since Gillen's 'New Games Journalism' manifesto:
once again marckee is spot on. Spot. ON!
somewhat gutted to find out she's significantly younger than me though.
in the increasingly-common people-who-have-achieved-far-more-than-me-being-younger-than-me sense, you arse.
they're after an experienced projectionist
Gonzo gaming journalism is pretty much exactly what I should have been doing with my 20s, yet the idea somehow never occurred to me. God damn her making me regret stuff by being good at things.
one of my posts got like 6 thisses, so I've probably made the top 50
generally hate buzzfeed but his stuff is a good lighthearted take on politics.
once again lemonbrickcombo is spot on. Spot. ON!
(even if it's not actually that difficult).
I'm still not convinced by the ethics of some of the other stuff he's been responsible for.
is the egg frying opposite the walkie talkie
what is this other stuff?
cant remember what the name is
Lovely guy, but he doesn't really know what he's doing, he was just flung into the spotlight at a young age by that Google ad he was featured in. Ever since then his career's been micro-managed by a set of handlers who call all the shots.
I'd love to see how The Guardian estimate him as having a net worth of £8m. SBTV's only got about 400k subscribers, and their views aren't as strong as they used to be - hardly going to be raking in earth shattering advertising income.
not that I know who any of them are
could be something to do with me being a miserable arsehole but it could be something more. I can't put my finger on it
rather than who they actually are
it's probably a reasonable one.
doesn't even have to be both, would settle for either
preferably the youth
so i can feel bitterness towards you! ;)
yeah fuck andy
are arguably far, far worse than TOWIE-type reality TV belms.
but these lot seem alright
the initial media darlings sheen that the 2.0 lot kicked off has given way to a more earnest type of quiet digital celebrity now. It's nice.
just decided I dislike a couple of them
Thanks for hanging out here ohgood.
are you sure?
list is bollocks.
where's sean plott? he has 170k+ on twitter and 400k-ish on youtube and is right up at the front of e-sports including webcasts on live events. maybe it's because he's not cool and/or attractive.
I'm no longer surprised as to why he's not on here
you can play a good game where you pause them and he always has a very weird facial expression
because he's massive on the internet and under 30 and whoever wrote that article doesn't understand anything so instead they pander to people that pretend to like science or technology
they're a thing
that not very popular
but i think it's a huge ommission considering how far e-sports have come and how big of a community there is around his channels and website
which is entirely in its infancy, just like e-sports?
so someone specialising in a single video game extremely unlikely to make it
you're not having problems understanding how other people might not like things you like again are you?
but it's right at the front of competitive video game playing in general and he's right there and is pretty influential in that field. far more than someone just being a journalist for video games
anyway, you're championing a buzzfeed list. keep it up
you haven't really put forward much of an argument for why he shouldn't be on there. e-sports is theoretically the next evolution in competitive pursuits. it's every bit as valid as poker, chess or tennis. yes, it's one game, but it's right at the cutting edge of what e-sports could turn into.
there are guys on there just cooking. wow. really influential. nobody has ever done that before. plott's content is new in terms of the media they use and the content that makes it up.
seriously though, 21 pictures of politicians in wellies staring at floods. brilliant.
are more important than him will probably haunt him for the rest of his life. poor sean.
even though you clearly said sean plot
so not yet
I don't dislike her but...really?
rather than just non-bellends
she's probably the best known, surely?
rather than a lot of the other people mentioned.
jacksgap are bad
sbtv is good
tavi is good
jerrom e jars bad
drunk kitchens bad
those food men seem alright just keep away from tanyas bf cause hes bad
made me angry. I reckon i could probably do what they do (i.e. be 'whimsical', appeal to people about 10 - 15 years younger than them, make faces at the camera and edit in a new shot every 5 seconds). Difference is i don't want to lose my dignity.
there's a lot of people willing to debase themselves a lot further for much less money
not sure what my point is
Lol how connected am I!!!
2. 4 chefs (or any group of people) should be disqualified. Just got all their individual families and mates to follow them and there's more of them, innit?
kill them all to make me feel better.
Saying that I've quit my job - Might be homeless / a digital millionaire within a year.
so i can one day order them all around at Asda
when you're still making this same post in every media-related thread
and i can show people pictures of him in an internet forever tshirt to people for a quid a pop
I think you might be waiting awhile guntrip...
27 reasons why i'm doomed to be subjected to linkbait list articles for the rest of my dismal life
Good to see the youth making something of themselves tbqh
I can't even look at them without getting a bit angry

immediately releases machine gun flurries of bitterness and misanthropy through the networked web of my human veins
