That is not a typo folks. I am leading the drive to lash back at backlash, though I suppose technically it never lashed me in the first place…yet. For me, this is a preemptive strike against a backlashing. And this time we’ll find those WMDs.
One of the most popular ways bloggers seem to be generating buzz is to grab something likable, for example bunny rabbits with big round eyes, and hating it. Then they get their buddies to do it too, so they all conform to the bullshit hipster “non-conformity.” On a site like BuzzFeed, they gather it up and present it as a trend. This is the same thing the stockbrokers in Boiler Room did: they created their own hype, their own buzz, their own inflated stock price.
Do a search for backlash on BuzzFeed. 93 hits and counting. Who will you find there? People like Zooey Deschanel, Michael Cera, Tina Fey, and Daniel Day Lewis. I call bullshit. Tell me what is wrong with any of them. I dare you. What? Is Tina Fey too funny (and hot IMO)? Is Michael Cera too awkwardly charming? Is Zooey Deschanel not the most adorable fucking thing ever? Is Daniel Day Lewis too good of an actor?
Fuck you backlash machine. You fake buzz generating succubus.
