Would I spoil the effect of my videos if...

    I told everyone that they're mostly jokes off of stuff I see in the media or on other Youtube channels? (I'm aware that counts as media.)

    Since like only 1 out of every 37 people that contact me about my messages gest that they're jokes it's like, guess you all aren't too clever.

    But it's MY fault.

    The character I am when I'm online IS someone who people are suppose to be, "WTF did he just say he litters so the icecaps the melt JUST so he can GET A TAN!"

    It's a joke! GAWD! I love Polar Bears, and Climate Change Sucks for them. They're dying.

    Homeless people? I care. Sure I've thrown rocks at a couple, but I don't like people in my lawn.
    See what I did there. That's a JOKE. Horrible? In poor taste? So are your mothers curtains, but I don't go posting about it.

    I just wanted to let you all know.

    I'm not shallow. Heck if a polar bear couldn't find any ice to hang onto, they'd drown in me.

    I've noticed that straight/mixed forums are - on average - much more receptive to jokes than gay forums.
    But then again, I kinda ignore the ones who can't take a joke, on either type of forum. icon_biggrin.gif

    Actually I post my videos on several forums. RealJock is the only gay one and the only one I get a negative reaction from.

    Maybe my jokes ARE bad and gay people just have higher standards.

    Or maybe...I'm just not handsome enough to get away with being a jerk.

    Meh....

    One of the videos with the most hits was one that I actually didn't even WRITE! I was honestly just doing regular talking and was shirtless.

    I was like, "Why do I even bother planning videos..."

    This.

    "Or maybe...I'm just not handsome enough to get away with being a jerk."

    It begs the question of why you'd want to get away with being a jerk. I made a habit of avoiding going out with jerks.

    As for humour, be a little more obvious. If people only see you as you behave in your vids, then yes they'll think you're like that all the time. Why wouldn't they?

    That was also a joke...

    So in order to pull the joke off I have to explain that's it's a joke.

    Sounds like fun.

    lol, it means that your humour isn't obvious enough. Never make your subtleties into obscurities.

    I think I remember you posting that one.
    But you need to do one that shows your entire upper torso.
    And don't worry about planning it.
    In fact, just stand there for a few minutes and let us drool.
    "Meditation music" would help, too. icon_biggrin.gif

    I love comedy and love stand-up. I love wise-cracking. What I do notice though among some young guys getting into humour is that the line between, "Now I'm joking/now I'm serious." is so blurred that many miss the joke, or fail to take the joker seriously when he wants people to.

    In other words, there doesn't seem to be a detectable shift when you go from joking to not joking and vice versa.

    That's where your issue is, I think. Why don't you post a serious vid so we can see what you're like when not joking (assuming that the vids we have seen already are of you joking, right?) icon_wink.gif

    You're like chocolate for my ego.

    This is why it would be cool if he did nude or at least shirtless videos.
    I love hanging around people who are like that all the time.

    Well thanks for the help people. It will all be taken into consideration when I'm writing the next video.

    Maybe I'll just do a regular Vlog. Let people know me.
