Edit: fixed some grammar and spelling mistakes. Do point any I missed.
Randomdce has many problems, most come from his lack of reading comprehension, his hankering for attention and his inability to say anything really concrete. Most of the time Randomdce feels like talking about his opponents as if he knows them thoroughly and it tends to become clear that he does not even know his opponents at all. It also doesn’t help that Randomdce appears to have a lot of problems when it comes to accepting dissenting opinions. I don’t think anyone who read the previous article didn’t notice how Randomdce attacked a guy for giving up on a show randomdce does not like, simply because the guy admitted he liked the show known as My little Pony (of all the things I expected to talk about… I never guessed MLP would be a topic).
Randomdce likes to behave as if he’s an activist, like his opinions have massive influence and that he must always crusade for a given cause. Just because the guy said he had originally liked the show, randomdce continued to rant on him using the pretense of “you didn’t give a good reason for giving up on the show, therefore you are a crybaby” even when the guy randomdce was attacking had specified that it was to save his sanity and that being harassed and misrepresented was a secondary reason. Even then, being misrepresented and harassed is a damn good reason to quit something especially if its something you can do privately. For example, if you draw a gun in public, everyone is going to pissed at you and the cops will definitely arrest you with charges that probably didn’t suit your intentions (i.e if you’re gun enthusiast, you probably drew your gun because it was fun or you like looking at guns; you definitely weren’t going to shoot someone). Whether we like it not, conformity is a good thing when it comes to social norms, if you can get the same satisfaction from drawing a gun in private as you can in public then there’s no reason to do it in public where punishments will likely occur. Likewise with the guy not liking MLP example, there’s no reason for randomdce to even bother trying to change his opinion about why he should start liking the show again. Its not hard to understand that people have personal reasons and there’s no reason to violate their privacy unless its pertinent to you or want to claim they’re being attention seekers. Does the cashier ask you why you’re buying food and the specifics behind why you didn’t purchase other types of foods? Do people ask you why you wear clothes and why you don’t wear others? Whether or not a guy likes a show or not is still up to personal preference. If human beings could communicate what actually goes on in their brains, we wouldn’t need psychology or any scientific study on consumer trends. Heck if you could INVENT a method to fully understand a person’s behavior and personality patterns even down to reactance (the need to show you’re not a puppet) and unknown situations then you’d be rich! But as it stands, people often have hard times explaining their private motivations and feelings. Its not in our place to insult people for their own preferences, but it is in our right to insult people for their anti-social tendencies and poor behavior. We might not be able to insult the human mind or even understand it, but we can insult the individuals who allow their mind to come to such poor conclusions as portraying everything as a black and white situation.
Speaking of black and white situations, Randomdce really likes to pretend that life is simple and that he clearly understands life to the fullest extent possible (protip: anyone related to Asalieri tends to have problems understanding basic concepts). Take a look at this rant randomdce made on people who liked the recent marvel movie “Guardians of the Galaxy” a movie, I haven’t watched.
Okay that comment was so stupid, that I literally have to take a look at this piece by piece. I mean a trainwreck of self absorbed delusional fantasy on facebook? Granted I shouldn’t be surprised, but when I heard that the internet polarizes someone’s mental instability, I didn’t think it was true.
For starters… why the heck would you post this on someone’s facebook page? Was it necessary? I literally can’t find info on who Tiana Camacho is and even if could… I can only begin to fanthom why it would even be necessary to make such a pointless rant on the subject? Edit: Tiana Camacho is apparently some lady who randomdce started dating and then broke up with; therefore if this was before they broke up then this is self absorbed egotistical crap and if they did break up before this was posted then not only is it egotistical crap but its also harassment. That’s seriously disgusting and arrogant behavior. No one wants to hear what you think especially when you don’t have critic credentials and aren’t even going to explain why you hate the movie.
“Hipsters of the cosmos”
Must have taken you all night to come up with that one randomdce. What’s particularly telling about Randomdce’s self-absorbed delusional fantasies is that the only reason he’s called it hipsters of the cosmos is because people like it and some claim to be life long fans. That’s it, there’s no reason why he called it hipsters of the cosmos and there’s even less reason to be angry about people claiming to be life long fans. Does that really bother you? Can you not sleep at night knowing that someone wasn’t a fan from day one? The only reason Randomce is complaining here is because he believes he is the “first true fan” and he can’t take it when other people enjoy things he doesn’t like (notice the paradox of being a true fan while at the same time saying the movie sucks…). I can’t believe this gets even worse, I mean shouldn’t you be happy that you now have more people to talk to about your franchise that you say you love? Speaking of which, randomdce, if you like the franchise so much and are now mad at people for saying they’re fans when they’re not, then why are you insulting the movie? Last time I checked, saying you are a true fan of something doesn’t involve insulting the thing you like. Great there’s already two major paradoxes and we’re not even past the intro section. I haven’t even talked about strawmen yet!! But don’t worry, randomdce has the perfect multiple choice answer to illustrate the bullshit that is the strawman fallacy.
Multiple choice A: The I want to be friends with nerds claim
OH sick burn on all those non-existent people who clearly aren’t even behaving like people. I mean wow, people trying to be friends with nerds? I thought the stereotype was that nerds don’t get friends or at least get beatings? I also distinctly recall that nerds were not superior? Oh well logic is for people who are actually able to overcome egotism.
Multiple Choice B: The only care about extreme event claim by using a shitty analogy
While I do know that some people claim to be fans of a work even when they clearly are not intimate with the work or the franchise (i.e Irate Gamer) the reality is that people do this because they don’t want to stick out. How would you feel if every time you had to eat something you’d have to claim you were an enthusiast for that particular food. It’s stupid but if you’re being asked whether you like something and you just want to end the conversation, you’ll say you do and then try to leave or lay low. While its good that randomdce is noting a particular event that does occur, why the heck does this harm people and why is this bad? Most people admit they don’t read comic books because they’re too much commitment and there’s too much continuity lockout. And I don’t know if this was a surprise to most people, but people have LIVES. Attending every soccer event would be severely taxing financially and time wise too. And don’t tell me you’ll just watch it on TV? Don’t you realize that randomdce is HARDCORE(TM) he’ll just argue that you need to be there to experience it like a true fan. Think I’m being too harsh/ putting words in his mouth? He’s asking people to literally care about soccer all the time, even when the stakes are low. Remember that soccer is an international sport, even if you were watching it only on TV, you’d still need to know all the teams, all the matchups, the scores, player growth and progress and several years worth of the aforementioned. You can’t just like soccer and call yourself a fan in randomdce’s book, you’d have to meet requirements that even randomdce is guilty of not meeting. Heck I bet the only reason Randomdce is mentioning this is because of Asalieri’s recent bullshit trek into sports videos, most of which contained blatant racism and boring statements.
Multiple Choice C: The bandwagon, because people only like what is popular right?
Okay let me get this out of the way right now. What is popular is not always good and what is good is not guaranteed to be popular. If people are going to like something, they need to know about it first. There is something known as the mere exposure effect, which is an effect in which a thing that is repeatedly shown/encountered is liked more and more with each encounter. Saying that people only like things because other people are talking about it is like saying that people only like things because statistically you’re more likely to know about it. This isn’t a shameful thing unless the activity being engaged in is shameful or unlawful (i.e Everyone was rioting, therefore I stole a TV). How exactly is it shameful to like something because you heard about it from someone else. People don’t just throw mentals darts all over the place and find what they like, or just start typing up random words into google to find that next franchise they’ll be fans of. I don’t even know what’s the insult here? Is it not common knowledge that knowing about something allows you to like it? I guess you could complain that someone who just started is stating that they’re fans, but even then there would have to be a majority of people behaving like that. That would be like saying all Asalieri fans are pedophiles who jack off to a wife and her kids, its not right and it never will be. Its called the strawman fallacy because you don’t represent the diversity of opinion and behavior that people exhibit.
Multiple Choice D: Have I proven myself a sociopath yet?
Yeah let’s just say everyone who likes the movie must be an attention seeking, disingenuous, weak willed, loser who only likes what is popular. I’m sure Randomdce is a master of the art of debating.
And the last part of this particular snapshot of the rant just shows how self absorbed he is. I mean did Randomdce read over what he wrote? Why even bring megaman and marvel versus capcom into this? Why even mention DC movie fans? I mean unless I’ve been following Randomdce’s crappy Vlogs from day one, I am not going to understand the points he is trying to bring up here. If anything, this shows how unprofessional and emotional he’s being here. There’s no relevance to this topic, he just brings it up because it bothers him. Great work randomdce, you can’t even stay on topic for more than 500 words.
Congrats randomdce, do you even understand people? I mean I don’t even think you understand that people are diverse. Seriously all people who like the movie must be working a fast food job, trying hard to get laid, and people who would beat up randomdce at the schoolyard. Now granted, given what kind of an asshole randomdce is, I’m absolutely sure that most people if not everyone would attempt to inflict some degree of harm to randomdce at a school yard; but the point of randomdce’s rant was to insult the people who claim to be fans when they are not fans. Not complain about working a deadend job, being a virgin and getting beat up as a kid. Does randomdce have attention deficit disorder or something? Its rather hard to start writing about something and then suddenly shift to your childhood bullies. And to add insult to injury, bullies do not talk in leet speak.
“This is how comic book fans like me feels”
wow and I didn’t think I’d see more symptoms of group think from you randomdce but hey I assume that human beings can and do have redeeming qualities. But just for the record lets add illusion of unanimity, the fallacy of believing that all people support you, to your list of qualities randomdce.
I sure hope this was self parody. True fan of marvel saying fuck marvel and fuck the movie. There are ways of demonstrating reactance randomdce, saying the things you like suck is generally not one of them. Still though what a fan randomdce must be, to hate a movie just because other people might claim they are long time fans when they are not, of which would probably be like less than a dozen.
Taking a look at the comments that randomdce made to people talking to him, even randomdce states that he hates only people who claim to be major fans when they are not.
So either the dozen odd people you can easily ignore warranted such a stupid and utterly pointless rant or randomdce felt like showing he was such a major fan of comics that not only can he not take criticism like a marvel editor but has modeled his life after making stupid retcons and pointless longwinded sequences, like a marvel writer. If this was only about those people who fake being lifelong fans (aka posers) then why say “fuck marvel”? Why say “fuck this movie”? And for someone who really loves guardians of the galaxy franchise at what point was it necessary to say “fuck this franchise”? (yeah sorry about the repetition).
It’s telling that randomdce seriously hates Linkara but can’t come up with a decent explanation why (oh what a surprise!) and seriously can’t critique anything without misrepresenting something or rubbing pointless egotism into this. What’s really sad is that RandomDCE hates Linkara but he also says “fuck Joe Quesada” even though Joe quesada doesn’t do anything now and hasn’t done anything since 2011. Comic Book fan my ass randomdce, you don’t even know who’s doing what in marvel! So not only has he posted egotistical crap that makes no sense, he’s claimed to be a fan while doing everything a fan shouldn’t do (hey remember the MLP rant posted in the previous articled and discussed earlier where randomdce claim people shouldn’t give up because other people are ruining it for them…?) but also can’t even cover his own ass with a retcon statement.
Heck even randomdce notes that it stupid to post egotistical crap no one cares about; take a look at this facebook post he made referring to his ex-girlfriend Tiana Camacho (Randomdce is James thompsett):
Why put wetting themselves in public in quotations…? But I digress, a recurring theme with randomdce is that he knows what he is doing is wrong but is going to do it anyway. My guess is that he has bad influences like Asalieri but it doesn’t change the fact that writing about pointless things that most people will know is bad (the derogatory term “poser” exists for a reason) is the exact definition of pointless. Randomdce didn’t educate anyone with his rant on guardians of the galaxy. Instead he felt like mentioning his dead end job, his sexual frustrations and his childhood bullying and let’s not even get started on the sudden invoking of marvel versus capcom or saying the movie sucks for no reason. It’s even more worrying that randomdce knows that people shouldn’t make egotistical rants that have no point but then makes a double standard in which he himself is allowed to do it.
But hey let’s take a look at randomdce being a jackass to his ex-girlfriend.
“you needed to mouth off… because it makes you the bigger person…”
Ouch, randomdce just got owned by his ex-girlfriend. I mean wow, she just plain nailed him for egotism. Most people are too surprised by how blatantly stupid randomdce is to say something anywhere near as damning. But the real kicker is Randomdce’s post:
“Not to mention I set and read shitons of posts from people… like sometimes they post 70 things a day!!! And only 5 of them are worth reading!!”
Wow randomdce, do you self monitor? Surely he must notice that he too is being socially overactive, especially given how quickly he was to post right after someone tried to deflect suspicion off his earlier comment. But given randomdce’s talent, integrity and responsibility scores, well obviously he didn’t notice.
Protip: randomdce, constantly replying to people you don’t like is the equivalent of reading shit tons of posts when most of them are pointless. Making posts just to rub in your own self absorbed opinion is equally as bad.
But surely randomdce wouldn’t be arguing with people who disagree with him recently, like in 2013?
Yeah telling people to go fuck themselves is A-okay, especially when you can’t even argue for your own work. If you’d like to see the whole conversation you can see it in the image below:
That’s a long image isn’t it? well don’t worry I’m not covering this. It essentially goes with nytroxious saying “I disagree” and randomdce just replying with personal attacks. I love the part where randomdce says everyone is entitle to their opinion why mispelling “theirs” and not letting nytroxious say anything without insulting him for it.
Well this article is getting pretty long. And it doesn’t help that contributors have literally given me years worth of evidence against randomdce. I can’t possible cover entire chatlogs of randomdce being an idiot asshole and I can’t cover entire discussion threads of randomdce being an idiot asshole. There’s already enough instances of randomdce being a self-absorbed, egotistical hypocrite here that its unnecessary for me to cover those. In the previous article we’ve already seen that randomdce makes shitty videos with no point and no relevance and today we’ve seen that randomdce doesn’t make relevant posts and loves to talk about himself and insult those around him. We can conclude that randomdce hasn’t changed from 2008 like TV tropes YMMV page says he has and that he still hates those who are fans of what he doesn’t like and that he puts so little thought into what he says and what he does that he literally violate his own stated principles constantly. I’m just going to leave another post from randomdce showing exactly what constitutes as relevant in his opinion
