I feel like the Internet is just this insatiable swamp beast that is constantly trying to sneak out of its swamp and eat us alive, and nothing will kill it, not even fire, so the only thing that we can do to stay alive is just constantly feed it things that it thinks are more delicious than the human heart, but you’ve got to be fast or else it’ll GETCHA. Another VERY GOOD analogy for the Internet would be that scene in the first Leprechaun movie starring Warwick Davis and Jennifer Aniston when the people learn that one of the myths of the Leprechaun is that he has to shine every pair of shoes that he he comes into contact with, so they gather all the shoes in the house into a garbage bag and just whip the shoes at him, and he’s so angry because now he has to shine all these shoes before he can go murder some fools, but myths are myths and those shoes aren’t going to shine themselves. In this metaphor, we are the people in the house, the Internet is the Leprechaun, and lazy, emptily nostalgic, low-rez pop culture mashing garbage is a bag of shoes. As if to prove my point, the scene that I’m talking about is on YouTube and it has more than 150k views.
