When I do not meet enough people in life, in particular these past few years, I tend to try to supplement being around people with online methods. One of those methods is watching Twitch and sometimes interacting with the people doing their streaming “shows.”
Not surprisingly, aside from a few streamers the medium is mostly a toilet.
I watch mainly attractive women because I like watching them do stuff. Plus, the Big Island is kind of devoid of hot girls. There are a large number of women who do nothing but just have their mega-breasts hanging out for the whole stream. They rarely say anything and not surprisingly people give them hundreds and in some cases thousands of dollars. Just the other day I was watching a girl with cat make-up and cat ears and all she did was stare dully into the camera. She was beautiful but this shit gets boring after a while.
Some girls like to dance around, play video games, or cook things which is really more appreciated. That can be fun… for a while.
Others are just so self-absorbed and annoying it gets ridiculous. It’s like watching someone stroke their ego with a hundred and seventy viewers to reinforce their ego trip. The Twitch Developers usually encourage this inane shit because let’s face it, they have mostly heard about girls in books.
The handful that I keep returning to watch have something to offer like their personality or they are just interesting people to watch. I was watching this Korean girl karaoke the song “Maria” for a couple of hours because she seems like she’s insane. Thousands of people were watching her as well. It was bizarre but super enjoyable. People who are actually gamers are sometimes interesting to watch because they enjoy playing games and aren’t just doing it for the money. This whole industry is new and I think many people are joining the bandwagon just to make a quick buck. Particularly super-model type girls who normally don’t give AF about video games but do it because they can get a guy with Aspberger’s to just drop $500 on their channel in a second. Hey, this really does beat a real job.
My point with this is this: Is this the future of entertainment? The big studios have been ditching making quality shows and movies for the more cost-effective “Reality” genre. They usually are phenomenally successful too like The Osbournes or Kardasians. This Twitch platform is just a future devolution towards easier to make but ultimately shittier entertainment. Remember how good Seinfeld was anyone?
I can’t wait for the biggest show in the universe to just be some girl staring into the camera dressed as a cat showing her massive mega-titties while she checks her phone or chews gum. That’s quality!
I usually avoid watching guy streamers because it’s mainly entitled white privileged assholes like PewDiePie who just like to say misogynistic and racist things all the time because that’s how they normally are in real life and think most people are like that too.
There are a handful of streamers I do want to mention that I really enjoy watching though. First there’s Livibee because she’s really beautiful and her personality is bright and bubbly. Not to mention she’s sweet and a Master Starcraft player. There’s Angrypug who I watch because he is funny as hell. KatGunn aside from being really beautiful actually has a great personality and is into nerdy shit like comic books, metal, and video games.
