If you’re not familiar with Crendor’s work, you’re genuinely missing out. He’s done some absolutely hilarious machinima work. Most of it pokes fun at the stereotypes of WoW, and does so perfectly. However, this time he turned his attention towards a completely different group of people…
That’s not me giving the finger to Facebook either. Folks who know me, know I don’t Facebook. Haven’t. Won’t. My wife will argue that I lurk on her account on occasion and there’s a small bit of truth in that. Not as much as she thinks, and only because one or two people will update their Facebook status four times in an hour and not respond to an e-mail for a week. Some days you just need an answer.
But, yes, I admit to being in the minority and just not doing “FB.” But what I love about this video is that I know people like this. They’ll rag on gamers in general about wasting time and what have you, with whatever game they’re playing, and then turn around and check Facebook twice in the amount of time it’s taken me to tell you this. Or they’ll be on their cellphone sending text messages. It’s not even that I’m old, I just think it’s rather ass-backwards.
I do apologize, because the subject has become rather rantish on my part and that wasn’t the point. I totally laughed my ass off when I saw the video because not only do I know people like this, a couple of them are family. So because I can see them being “the girlfriend” archetype, I chuckled. That it’s true on a much larger social level made me laugh even harder, and that’s why I had to share it. I suppose some days what I offer up to you on this plate comes with a side of angst and bitterness…or just thick-headed, old school, Taurus/Scottish stubborn attitude.
