For those who don’t like to read, my article’s basic message is: NOBODY LIKES A BRAGGART. Now for the brave…
GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS?! RANDOM RANT TIME >.<
Hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wives, ’cause e’rybody’s gettin’ ranted on today XD
So, this one’s con culture specific. Also, before I even get started; if the shoe fits, wear it >.>
Please…please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, PLEASE stop bragging about whose autograph (usually voice actors) you got at whatever convention -_- Unless this information was actually requested of you (which I doubt looking at how I’m approaching this issue), nobody gives a s**t, it ain’t worth a s**t, & now you’re officially a piece of s**t b/c this is the umpteenth time I’ve heard about such-and-such autograph from bumblef**k who the f** ever from f**k-you-con. They’re VOICE ACTORS, come to me when you have an autograph from Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Jon Stewart, you know, ppl. that matter on a grand scale, not just this niche thing whose autograph is worth absolutely nothing monetarily.
Now, this isn’t an insult to the individual voice actors but to the individual d-bag bragging. To make every conversation somehow deteriorate into this person essentially jerking their self off & climaxing on the other (un)willing person’s face is asinine (& gross) & is going to lose you friends FAST. I keep seeing this & I always have the same reaction; immediately tell them upfront “I don’t give a f*ck”; if this is ignored, get real f***ing quiet; if they still haven’t climaxed yet/given up altogether/got the message, bye b*tch, I got s*it of import to do. Nobody wants to ‘proverbially’ watch another jerk their self off in a conversation, nobody, so stop you’re f**king “I haven’t accomplished s**t but I’m going to make it seem like it” bragging. Especially bad for ppl. like me, besides having a 0 tolerance for b.s., others who only care about a handful of voice actors & that’s it. For me, if they aren’t Patrick Seitz, Liam O’Brien, Travis Willingham, or Jameson Price, I don’t give any f**ks, so don’t come b.s.ing to me. Not to mention I only care about meeting the person myself, so someone else meeting them means nothing to me. Now, if I get a chance to actually know & befriend the VA (that isn’t one of the 4 mentioned), swell, otherwise I don’t care. I assume they’re doing awesome work, are an awesome person, & I’ll never get to know them on a personal level & I’m perfectly okay with that, but some ppl. … >.> You’d swear they got a BJ from this VA for how much they’re bragging about their signature (or they’re a VA kiss-a$$ -_-).
To put the final nail in the coffin, for someone who’s constantly touring cons doing panels, getting to know ppl., making connections with other bigger name panelists, & slowly working my way up to the rank of guest (where I can actually get to regularly hang out with these ppl. some insist on bragging about receiving autographs from), I have far more interesting things to talk about, share, & brag about if I so decided to be that level of a$$hole for a moment but I don’t. One reason, besides my general assumption nobody gives a f**k unless it’s of, relating to, or about them mentality, is b/c I have a blog or some other social networking thing NOT Facebook to post stuff. To these braggin d*uches: get one. Usually when I deal with these braggarts it’s IRL situations, however, so this is mostly a “you suck as a person in general” type deal & not ppl. being idiots on SN sites, like usual.
There’s a lot more I can say about this, but I already said far more than enough. So, in conclusion, if you get autographs & occasionally post about it/mention it when relevant to the conversation, I’m not talking about you, I’m referring to those that literally seem to always have to find a way to shoe-horn it into any conversation, & to those that do SHUT THE F**K UP NOBODY GIVES A S**T.
K done, b*tch out.
