This reblog of the week explores the FnordicCulture of the Discordian Tribe of Eris. My own recent digging around has unearthed a few old but new gems, including this scroll of wisdom, shown below, describing how the Aani myths relate to the chaotic origins of Discordia, and the legends of Eris, the Goddess of strife and thingimy-bobs of a messy nature, described first by the fed-up philosopher Richard Dawkins, which blossomed into the later memes of the post-post-classical meltdown period. Confused? Good. You are starting to get the fnord of the thing. Read on, for further illumination.
Discordian YouTube Connections? I’ve often suspected there’s a large area of cross-over, but never been able to definitively prove anything. And just look at the bother one can get into, speculating on things without proof. Defango recommends Tarl Warwick‘s (Styx hexenhammer666′s) book on Occult Memetics on a recent video. Interestingly, Tarl Warwick is also the editor of this little tome. He must be a busy guy, as he is also running for the position of Governer of Vermont this year. How fnordy is that. If you are worried about demon infestation issues from reading the Grimoire, you could stick to the Discordian version, which you probably won’t catch demons off, unless you consider a fit of the giggles evil.
Sigh. I’ll probably never get to the bottom of the entanglements of ideas that criss-cross through meme culture. Meanwhile……..
Sometimes the truth must be hammered home, and when one is part of the Truth Community on YouTube, there are a variety of approaches. Being a content creator myself, with a fairly new channel up, I have to think carefully about how I can get the truth out there to my viewers. While thinking about the best way to do this, I formulated a plan which, I think you will agree, is both simple and brilliant. The following livestream informs my viewers of what direction I intend to take on my channel.
I just got a new job, which I am pretty excited about. For some strange reason I couldn’t get along with anyone in the last post, and the job before that too. They wouldn’t even give me a reference, but I told my new boss I was disabled, and they would be discriminating against someone with a learning disability, Tourette’s Syndrome, and a mixed black heritage, and they gave me the job, ‘cos I threatened to sue. It would be a cushy number, if it weren’t for the people I have to meet. God, how I hate people. All my experiences with them are very odd indeed. What’s their bloody issue? Now f$ck off, and stop bothering me. Can’t you see I’m on my break?
Hey groovy guys and gals. It’s Sunday night and I feel like getting ma groove on. Sunday’s a day for chilling out and gettin’ the good vibes goin’, and after doing some Tai Chi with a friend in the morning, and taking a nice stroll in the woods in the afternoon……..
I curled up with a good book, and guess what, I fell asleep, as so often happens on a Sunday, when one has had such a busy week. I love nodding off with a book in my hand.
I was in such a good mood when I woke up that I thought a little dance around the living room was in order after dinner. I came across this great tutorial, and I thought I’d share it with you here. So kick off your shoes, and let’s see how MC Hammer does it, then we’ll try it ourselves. Funky, funky.
You got it, baby. You is busting out those moves now, and tearing up that dance floor. You are ready to earn your place with the all time greats of Soul Train. Get up! Look out for Chaka khan in this top 10.
Denise the Menace is at it again (see tonight’s livestreamed video at the bottom of this post). She got a couple of strikes on her YouTube Denise Matteau channel. If you don’t know Denise, and she seems to have come to a lot of people’s attention of late, for all the wrong reasons, you can read about her on an earlier post here. She’s quite the character lately. And she likes to stay relevant to everything that’s happening in the ‘Truther Community’ by keeping up with the local gossip and scandal on all the other channels in her corner of YouTube. Her take on events and other people’s opinions alienates some, enrages others. I find myself constantly among the alienated, since she blocks me so frequently, and I find myself thinking ‘Was it something I said?’ This time, it clearly was. A one-liner in her livestream chat was all it took to get myself unceremoniously chucked out on my ear. Thumbs down from me for that one, Denise.
Thing is, Denise doesn’t invite differences of opinion. Outside of ‘you are so right’ type of remarks, she gets quite nervous and defensive. She hands out wrenches to the five or six trusted minions who turn up in chat, and these ‘wenches with wrenches’ are on a constant look-out for anyone new to arrive so that they can chuck them out as quickly as possible, and keep the lovely Denise all to themselves. There is a mad scramble to name that troll, and as soon as a wrench has decided, for no apparent reason that someone is a troll, out they go. What a weird way to run a channel, but it makes sense when you read a little of Denise’s history, which is full of paranoia about stalkers and trolls everywhere. The truth is, she is training her own little troll crew. Thankfully there are so few of them that they can’t do too much harm; most in that corner of YouTube know how crazy her little ‘Family’ are, and tolerate them by ignoring them. Way to go to kill your channel, Denise.
Here’s the latest ejection from the chatroom. It all started out so friendly, too. After my comment shown in bold I got blocked for being a troll. Skavop got turfed out moments later for questioning the ejection. That’s pretty much how Denise’s system works, wrenches everywhere, questions never.
Charming people, aren’t they? Obsessed with trolls everywhere, keen to badmouth and ban people for no reason, not accessible to logic or truth-telling in any shape or form. Denise went over to ‘Lift The Veil’s Livestream‘ in the middle of her own streaming, and got herself so annoyed she ended up in a big shouting fit. The wrench crew got more upset too, and the vibe got nastier all round. And these are all Christians!
I don’t imagine Denise’s channel will survive much longer, though she might manage to flog a couple more quilts and flowerpots, I suppose. Jerome Corsi seems to be her latest target among the other YouTube channels, and as you can see from her remarks in the video, not to mention her previous history, her obsessions often end up with the object of her attentions feeling sorry they ever met her. Lucky for me, I can just consider her entertainment. Imagine if you had to bump up against someone like this at work, or have a YouTube channel she is interested in. It always ends badly, but is pretty entertaining, if frustrating at times for the people she tries to shut up. You better watch the video quickly, because she usually pulls them down more often than an elderly woman needs to use the loo at night. Her chat on the stream is immortalized here, because she pulls the chat down, for reasons that should be clear from reading the above, straight after the stream goes off. She may also change video settings, so if videos don’t play on this page, click on video to get option to view it in YouTube.
If you want to know what happens to Denise’s rejects, we end up in the purgatory of our own channels, comparing notes about the rotten way we’ve been treated, some still in shock after realizing they are not in with the in crowd any more. It’s quite a wrench when you realize you’ll never get to be one of her trusted ‘flying monkeys’. See the comments on Denise’s ex-subscribers that were booted out herehttps://youtu.be/zGF3qBz08P8and herehttps://youtu.be/lG4XNbrT1jY and here https://youtu.be/zZ9jcBte2W0,
Postscript: One hour after her livestream, the threats of legal action started. One day later the video was removed by her, but I kept the transcript over here, if you want to take a looky-look.
New videos are going up and down two days later (3rd April) faster than a Victoria secrets model’s undies at a catwalk show. I presume the two shown below in the photo of my ‘phone’s notifications were issuing more instructions to the ‘Family’, but I don’t know, because she pulled both videos down immediately after livestreaming ended. She is keen to have her circle of wrenches write to her via snail mail too; perhaps there is less of a trail left of her activities for others to record? Of course some of the traces of her activities across the internet remain. Like her 2016 trolling of someone in an abuse survivors group.
The flying monkeys are willing to help the campaign too, it seems:
Denise is issuing orders to her flying monkeys via her comment section, and doing a little light stalking while she’s about it:
Whew. Like I said, charming little ‘Family’ she’s got there. Glad I’m not related, aren’t you? Feel free to leave comments; the button is at the top of the post. You won’t be chucked out, or blocked. Free speech is an actual thing in some places, you know.
Postscript: Looks like some folks did want to comment. They were unable to find the comment button here, unfortunately, so they made their comments elsewhere. I thought I’d help them out here.
A short filmed clip from one of Denise’s removed videos, posted on my own YouTube channel on April 20th, garnered more trolling aimed at a commenter, from the always charming Neon, who, it turns out, is an Anonymous member, which may come as a surprise to Denise, who is not keen on left-wing groups.
Not sure where Denise stands on death threats, but this sure sound like one to me.
Wasn’t long before Neon had something else to say. Seems the worm turned, as they say, as this May 7th comment shows, when Denise decided that Neon was perhaps more of a liability than an asset.
A couple of hours later, Neon was back in the comments section, this time as Anonymous Neon Flux, with an apology for her earlier remarks. Clearly, things were turning all over the place (I had to edit this post several times already today, so I’m sure there’s a bit of the Mandela Effect going on in some people’s minds).
2 hours later, Neon was back in Denise’s livestream broadcast, This time as ‘Candy Kisses’ along with hubby, scotty A, and they wanted their money back for orchid planters they had bought. Unhappy customers it seems. The planters looked so nice too.
