Why CAN I hold all these MK III Collector’s Editions?
There we go, now I look a bit more up to the unrealistic standards society holds. :3
Why can’t I hold all these MK III Collector’s Editions?
And so it begins… MK III Collector’s Box.
It’s only a small amount though compared to the positive stuff we get.
Literally it’s all from tumblr and children.
That’s not a knock against tumblr or it’s users. Obviously we get tons of great interaction with fans on all our social media sites.
But if you’ve ever used the Internet, you can probably guess how terrible it really is.
Everyone has this anonymity online and some people go out of their way to berate other people, “school them”, fling hateful insults, troll, uphold social justice, and generally just do a ton of things that would never be described as “Ok” by the general population.
At least that’s what I think.
It’s not just unique to Steam Powered Giraffe or my own experiences.
Just take a look at fandom reactions to a gazillion different things online…
Or YouTube comments…
Or video game review site comment sections…
There’s something wrong with these people…
It’s some sort of social disorder or something…where some people have to warrant their own existence by bringing other people down…
I think the worst thing though is that some stuff is justifiable to people when it’s not blatant “You’re a fag” or “Go kill yourself”.
I think a lot of it comes down to young people on the Internet who think they know everything about life and have the soapbox of the Internet to preach their wisdom.
I am sure there is a more eloquent way to put that…
But anyways, to me it’s all kind of dangerous, because some of the stuff these people say, other young people latch onto…and what they’re saying isn’t always progressive things forward for society.
It’s almost like people are reinventing the wheel and they don’t see it because everything they know about life has been taught to them through social media.
There’s a lot of smart people out there…
Young and old…
I get the pleasure of interacting with them online and at events through Steam Powered Giraffe. It’s great.
But there are these other people that just…exist who are unpleasant.
Some can be straight up hateful and hurtful people, and others can be ignorant of their own terrible actions due to some hazy fog clouding their eyes so they can’t see how terrible they are…and their actions are sometimes subtle and sometimes not so subtle…but they are always justified in their own minds because they think they are doing good.
Basically you just ignore these people.
For Steam Powered Giraffe they’ve always existed.
They existed well before we had a following.
And the more exposure we get, the more crap we get.
But I think it balances out with positive stuff.
It’s like 100 positive people to 1 non-positive jerk.
I think some people (like me) are predisposed to see the bad…
But a lesson of life is to see the good, and ignore the dumb people.
People people are dumb.
I am dumb too.
I sometimes find other people dumb and laugh and think poorly of some people who send us terrible stuff through messages and emails and all that…
But those same people probably think the same thing of me.
It’s a bit unfair that I get to receive it directly and can’t realistically ignore all of it completely while the other side of the equation is just a frustrated immature person who can send whatever they want.
But I think it’s painfully obvious that if you are a part of something that has a large enough following, you will be the target of someone.
It’s just statistically that way due to the amount of people who hate their lives and want to make other people less than themselves in their minds by lashing out…however direct or passive aggressive….or secretly plotting it may be.
