Quotes / Take That, Audience!

Black Knight: Even as we speak, my Trolls are on YouTube downloading your videos! My Trolls are on your website posting MLP art of you and Dr. Insano. My Trolls are on Twitter redundantly telling you news about Highlander movies and asking you to livestream Deadly Premonition and propagating #spoonyhateseverything.

So, about 10 minutes into this film—which only wrestling fans would see—we've been insulted by being portrayed at the bottom rung mentally, emotionally, financially, and socially. Thank you, WCW; that's very thorough. Take a bow!

What especially stands out in the footage of GG’s shows is his relationship with his audience. With your average rock show there’s a sense that the band is being placed on a pedestal for fawning adulation. Punk broke down the barrier between the musicians and their audience and allowed the bands to present themselves as part of the crowd, no better or worse than the people they were playing for. But GG was actively at war with his audience. He cursed them, hit them, threw objects at them, and in the case of women (and some men!) attempted to rape them. And they fought back, throwing epithets, fists and bottles at GG while he was onstage. Watching the pit at a GG Allin show was like looking at some curious rite of passage of an obscure Africa tribe where only the bravest are willing to get close enough to the stage and risk either bodily harm or the possibility of receiving a fistful of shit, piss or blood. (It's strangely ironic that after all the shows GG did with no concern for his audience’s safety, Great White is the band that ends up killing a hundred of their fans.)

Clocksie,” Clockblocker said, deadpan, “Has been the target of a lot of criticism, because he was in charge of the Wards at the time a lot of stuff went down. Some dingbats online speculated that I had a thing for Weaver, and it took off. The people online like to find stuff that fills in blanks, and there were a hell of a lot of blanks around the whole thing with Weaver defecting, and our pseudo-truce with the Undersiders.”

(Robert) Holmes’s interest in continuity has always been virtually null. He jettisoned everything we thought we knew about Gallifrey in the Deadly Assassin, and in bringing the Time Lords back as peripheral figures in this story he basically scraps all of that for a whole new set of technology and explanations of things. Tat Wood accuses this of being the point where Holmes starts to believe his own reputation, but I think nothing could be further from the truth. This is the point where Holmes loses patience with being put on a pedestal. It’s much like the classic story of comics legend Jack Kirby being told that someone was drawing one of his characters 'Jack Kirby style' and remarking that Jack Kirby style would have been to create a new character.

Carey is present? Lieutenant Carey of seasons one and two, never to be seen since? Are they taking the piss? Leave it to Voyager to introduce a character, forget about him for five seasons and then bring him back right near the end just to kill him off! ...It feels like a very cynical move that a character should be brought back to silence critics just to kill him off.

If the nutshell of the story involves shadowy conspirators who construct a command center that allows them to fabricate grand lies, then it's easily an extended metaphor for the game itself, with Raiden being an analog for the player's real-life role as a Metal Gear fan. He's a delusional, video game-addled rookie who was a fan of Solid Snake, and he believed the conspirators' lies up until the very end. And once the curtain's pulled, he's frustrated and confused, and doesn't really know what to think of it all. It was a deliberate bait-and-switch. Kojima knew that players weren't expecting this. He knew that Raiden would be unappealing and unpopular. He knew that people weren't gonna like it. And he used that to tell the story... The message is about fanboyism and hype. It's about the environment that surrounded the game's launch and what they expected it to do.

Yes, this is a stock market game, and is likely to be the death knell to my sanity because you, Goony McGoons, are going to be my financial advisors. I am putting my financial wellbeing in your hands. Your (surely) very capable hands.

I think I want to cry.

So let's take a look at these here messages we received. I'll answer them on Director Chii's behalf- OK, here we go: "Can you guys like, speed this shit up a little bit- I mean the series ended in April 2011...". No. We. Can't. "GET OFF YOUR LAZY ASSES AND UPLOAD EPISODE 3 ALREADY". No, and also - fuck you [...] Basically, what I'm trying to say is leave Director Chii alone. Sending her nasty messages about this won't make an episode come out any faster.

YOU SANCTIMONIOUS SACK OF FECES! YOU'RE TRYING TO PIN THIS ON US? Marville failed sales-wise because "we couldn't accept your grand vision of world peace"? That we only wanted "superheroes punching each other"? GO TO HELL! Your comic didn't succeed because it started as a lame, unfunny parody of the comic book industry, and then was an inaccurate and moronic tale about God and the universe! It failed because it SUCKED!

The reason TNA took Samoa Joe away from Ring of Honor was to protect him from YOU PEOPLE! They know that Joe would have killed himself just to make you happy. But you would never be happy. You are never happy. And now Joe is only gone two months you have already forgotten about him. You've forgotten about Samoa Joe. You've forgotten about CM Punk. I give you one week before you forget about everything that Colt Cabana ever did for you. You're only waiting for the next young kid to come up - someone like Davey Richards, Rocky Romero or Delirious, so you can bleed them dry too.

At least we're better than those sickos that stand around and WATCH it happen... Those pathetic people that want to see it, but are too weak to do it themselves. I bet someone like that's watching right now, aren't they...?

I can't believe we're paying to see something we get on TV for free. If you ask me, everyone in this theatre is a giant sucker. [Aside Glance] Especially you!

Alright, now that I have your ears as well as your spines, allow me to indulge myself for a moment and tell you all what every content creator has always wanted to say to their audience.
