Those aren't mutually exclusive.

He's undoubtedly good at self-promotion and selling (just about literal) snake oil, but it sounds like 25 years of conning people has erased the line between his on and off show persona and beliefs. Sure, he plays it up sometimes still, but it sounds like he believes most of what he says in essence now too.

>>852 Actually I think that post was me having the exact same thought around 600 days ago. I was reminded of it again recently what with all the controversy.

858 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9113 00:39

Sure, there are plenty of jobs where software engineering skills, business sense, UX etc. matter more than CS knowledge. CS courses should probably teach these skills more often. However, there's still plenty of problems out there that need CS to solve them. Plenty of innovation is still being done by the people writing CS papers.

It's not like the two worlds are mutually exclusive, either. Plenty of computer scientists write papers and also make practical implementations. It's never a bad thing to learn more. Why can't we all just get along and share knowledge?

>>865 The art of sound design and foley is fascinating! Sometimes you use creative sound synthesis using programming and software, sometimes you use your imagination to record real objects. The trick is to think outside the box to make sounds more impactful or satisfying or gruesome for the effect you're trying to achieve. For example, snapping bundles of celery or slapping steaks together or bags of walnuts for bone-crunching combat sounds, or pouring bowls of soggy cornflakes for vomit sounds. The raptors in Jurassic Park used geese sounds. You can play with the pitch and tempo and various effects to create otherworldly yet organic sounds.

In your video, you could maybe make those mech sounds with like power drills, or balloon whippets for the hydraulic sounds.

I once got good anti-aircraft gun sound effects from pushing a big wooden table across a wooden floor so that it juddered with a big hard booming sound. Another time, for a sort of card game, ripping duct tape off a wall gives a much more satisfying sound for opening a booster pack than if I was to just to record the sound of me opening a real one.

If you've been keeping up with the news lately, there's actually been a lot of violent rhetoric from leftists.
From the "Unite The Right 2" rally, which was actually just antifa rioting and breaking things on their own, with no one else there:

>"It takes bullets to bash fash."

Remember: according to antifa, anyone who isn't antifa is "fash," so they are inciting violence against anyone who isn't a left-wing extremist.
And let's not forget the blue checkmarks on Twitter saying shit like "punch a nazi" when they define nazi as anyone who isn't as lefist as they are.
This will backfire for leftists, as it pushes more and more people to the right, as the left is kind of imploding in on itself and there are liberals who are attacking other liberals for not being as liberal as they are.
I used to be a liberal. Not anymore. You will find that there are many people like me. Blue wave my ass.

877 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9113 20:08

You might think I'm making up the part about being a former liberal, but in high school I was forced to be a part of an anti-gun petition thing and I had to write about gay rights and stuff too. I also used to call myself a feminist, which was a cringe-worthy phase in my life. But that was all due to indoctrination, back when I didn't think for myself. Now, I've been pushed too far by other liberals to the point that I want nothing to do with liberalism anymore and I'm voting for Trump in 2020.

Doesn't Fate just piss you off? I don't have objections against the idea of all things happening according to a design or anything like that, but when you see it in action you just think, "Could this happen in a more obnoxious way?". It's so annoying.

906 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9114 02:45

people believe in fate because it absolves them of any responsibility to change things on their own

try to develop an internal locus of control instead

>>906 I don't want things to change. Fate keeps getting in the way.

908 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9114 03:56

No, your lack of commitment to changing things is getting in the way. Fate is bullshit.

What is it that you want to happen? Instead of dismissing it as fate, think of ways you can achieve your goals. They might be difficult. You might need to seek out help from external sources. But you have to do SOMETHING.

This is what puts me off a lot of social media platforms, people are more focussed on likes and follower counts, seeking validation for their useless opinions this way. Actually it was the same on old Internet forums as well, how "established users" think their opinions are worth more, or they should be treated with more respect, because they've racked up 20,000 posts

914 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9114 07:47

915 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9114 09:24

I agree. Somewhat ironically, people with higher follower counts tend to be more boring because mainstream appeal is bland.

928 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9115 00:09

Get rid of the edgy profile pic and banner. People who think your tweets are clever will still be hesitant to follow you because of the offensive shit.

Make sure your profile pic doesn't get cut off due to the border-radius thing Twitter does now. Your pic currently has text that is cut off.

Your banner is too busy. Needs less stuff. And some of the images have poor scaling and incorrect aspect ratios. Use something like GIMP to resize with a constraint aspect ratio and use cubic interpolation.

You post too many images with no text at all. Twitter isn't Instagram, you need more text. You retweet lots of unrelated things. You should add captions to things you upload, and you should consider possibly quote tweeting things sometimes. You also have a bad ratio of retweets to content from yourself. Your timeline is mostly just a bunch of retweets from other people, and images with no text or context. That comes off as silent. You need to have more of a voice. That's what Twitter is for.

You need to have a more descriptive bio. Include titles and maybe a one-liner joke.

Your account needs a narrower focus overall. It seems like you're going for edgy humor, but then you retweet random unrelated stuff. People want to be able to pigeonhole an account as being for a specific thing, not just all over the place. If you want to be the edgy guy, be the edgy guy. If not, don't.

You posted a selfie... on an edgy account. Either go PC or full anon. Don't upload personal stuff like selfies on an account where you're making 9/11 and race jokes. Also, your selfie was bad. It was from an unflattering angle, in poor lighting, and you need a haircut and a shave. Fix those things and it will look so much better. Take pictures from above and away, with good lighting, not below and up close and dark. A good backdrop also helps.

Your ratio of following to followers is really bad. Also, be sure to follow people who follow you. And engage with your mutuals.

Consider making a CuriousCat account and linking to that in your Twitter profile. It can increase follower engagement.

Tweet with more regularity if you want people to follow you.

Your pinned tweet has no numbers. I looked through your other tweets, and you have two funny tweets that have a lot of likes and retweets. One of those should be your pinned tweet.

About your handle: it's called DM on Twitter... not PM. Maybe change it to SendEyeBags, since punctuation is bad.

Unfollow people who don't follow you. When you are following hundreds of people and only have a couple dozen followers, it looks bad. Of course, if you ever get successful enough at twitter that you have thousands and thousands of followers, then it becomes impossible to follow everybody back and then engage with each and every one of your mutuals.

Lastly, there are a couple effective (but shitty) way to increase the number of followers: be kind of a leech and respond to tweets by very popular accounts. You're essentially piggybacking off their fame. It's effective, but don't overdo it. There are some Twitter accounts with tens of thousands of followers simply because all they do is reply to Trump's tweets. It's a shitty form of self-promotion. I'm not saying you should tweet at Trump, I'm just saying you could get more followers by finding accounts relevant to your interests and then engaging with them. Then, the people who like those accounts will like you, since you are related to the stuff they already know they like. Example: if you're into sports, respond to tweets about sports from accounts with 100k+ followers. If you're into video games, respond to tweets about video games from accounts with 100k+ followers.

A second way to get more followers is to simply follow people who are similar to you. Search profiles for hashtags, words, etc. that are related to you and your personality and posts. Who are you? What are you interested in? Figure that out and search Twitter. A lot of people do follow4follow, as shitty as it might be. But it really does work. Just don't overdo it!

929 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9115 00:13

Elaborating on what I said about following people in hopes of them following you back: look at their ratio of following to followers. If they're more or less 1:1, then do it. But if they have 10k followers and are only following 200 people, don't bother. They are not likely to follow back at that point.

The shitty banner is actually my favorite thing about >>924's twitter. I really dig that semi-ironic I-don't-give-a-shit crap resolution mess.

I agree with some of >>928's advice, but the thing is if you follow all that advice you'll just be a boring-ass twitter personality that's just like everybody else. I say keep doin' your own style. Maybe take some of >>928's advice but not all of it.

>>932 yeah, >>928 is good advice if like, you're the social media department at some fast food corp trying to establish a "twitter brand" as edgy-but-in-a-safe-way rebels or something, but not good advice if you're just looking for somewhere to see and post interesting content and write your thoughts down

935 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9115 02:56

In general twitter is, imo, probably the least-shitty social media network(no real name policy, lax policy on r18 content, useable without enabling javascript, etc) but the obsession with follower counts is the biggest demerit against it. just be interesting and post interesting things and followers will come organically.

We're basically living in a cyberpunk dystopia but with only the crappy parts. Where's my cybernetic body augmentations, the concrete jungles with miles of obscure back alleys lit solely by neon signs flashing vaguely asian-looking letters, or the philosophical treatises on what it means to be human in a world where you can just copy your brain into a robot body? All we got instead was the monolithic surveillance state and the abject poverty and misery of 98% of the population while a cadre of the super wealthy vampirise the last scraps of wealth and resources of this planet before fucking off to space.

What a shitty trade.

no they are not, they distract you

941 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9115 05:09

really the key takeaway is: the best bet for most people is to create content that adds value to the people you wanna be online friends with (fans or other creators). you are best off filling a niche of some sort to have a chance of being popular, but it is not worth being popular unless it's a niche you love. if it is something where you are truly good at the content, you will expand your niche to its maximum possible reach when your best posts leak out.

also only post things that you are okay with literally everyone on planet earth remembering you posted it and responding to you. chances are they won't, but they might, that's the important part. you don't need to be "safe", necessarily, just okay with what is not safe about what you said.

also also, every second you spend on opinions that won't make a difference is a second you should have spent on opinions that will. is what you read a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing? k good don't give it any time. even ignore my shitty opinion if you want. nothing is true; everything is permitted.

People can still see it if they somehow conjure up the effort to view the shitty profile's avatar, and I'd rather not concede to bad design decisions. I'd imagine most people have changed the CSS with greasemonkey by now.

>banner too busy

How dare you, that banner is my charm point! By the way, everything in the banner WAS done up to scale, but I'd compose them over eachother. I disabled all forms of anti-aliasing, but that's just because I think AA is an atrocity in general.


In any image I've seen with a caption, they tend to detract from it so much that I avoid liking it. The meaning of an image is generally self-evident, I think, adding text is just redundant. I can see how captioning a retweet would make my account seem much, much less barren, but that just feels even scummier to me.


I've been meaning to post more, but I find that I just don't have interesting thoughts all that often. It's a serious personality issue. And when I do, I can't help but think that they'd be better spent on textboards such as this.


I had none earlier, that one's just inspired by this stupid line from a book. I know it looks fucking stupid, a little more than I find fitting for even my own profile, but the moment just formed such an impression on my mind. I'll probably change it, as you suggested.

>narrow focus

This'll probably fix itself when I start to post more.


That image is probably the only image of me that exists on the clear web, aside from that one image of my moustache on this very site. Furthermore, I probably haven't posted my name on that site. Even if it does pop up somewhere, looking it up on search engine brings up entirely unrelated things, because of a funny coincidence. As for the composition of it all, I was trying to go with a look that says "this guy looks like a total asshole" for the joke, but it doesn't really translate well. I guess people have seen others do things more ridiculous than wearing 2 sets of sunglasses while taking themselves completely seriously.


But I want to follow them.

>engage with your mutuals

They always ignore me, a symptom of the aforementioned issue of me being an entirely uninteresting person.

Sorry if this post was a little long.

> I'm still having trouble being sufficiently shitty with it.

Even image quality aside, do you really think it's a good idea to have jokes about 9/11 and racism? Come on.

>In any image I've seen with a caption, they tend to detract from it

I don't mean a caption on the image itself, I mean you write text in your tweet when you upload an image.

>I'd imagine most people have changed the CSS with greasemonkey by now

Most people don't use Greasemonkey on computers. And more people use mobile as opposed to computers anyway. That seems like a weird thing to contest. Your image literally has cut-off text.

>I just don't have interesting thoughts all that often

Most people don't, but many people manage to tweet more anyway. Just come up with a list of topics that you'll tweet about, and then occasionally mention something about it. Current events are an easy way to post frequently. I don't mean general current events. But whatever niche you're a part of, there's probably something going on, so you can tweet hot takes about things that happened in your circles or hobbies lately. Or puns or jokes. Or life updates, like a new job, classes you're taking, things like that. What you wrote indicates that you think tweeting is only for really impressive stuff. Guess what? People tweet about going to restaurants or drinking with people. It doesn't have to be super interesting or uncommon. People tweet about dumb shit all the time.

>I was trying to go with a look that says "this guy looks like a total asshole"

My first thought was "this guy needs to shave and get a haircut and maybe get a gym membership." No offense though.

>They always ignore me

Do you mention people? Do you DM them? Do you know them? Do you respond to their tweets? Do you have things in common with them?

Think: who is your target audience? Why do people follow you? Don't just tweet aimlessly into the void. Think about who you want to see it, why they would like it, etc. It's hard to have an audience if you don't know who you're tweeting for. You can even view Twitter analytics to see who views your stuff, like what they're interested in and all that jazz.

I can't imagine being so invested in something so devoid of value

945 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9115 10:53

if you worked in social media before (as shitty of a job as it is) you'd notice little details like this

"people tweet about dumb shit all the time so don't worry about posting more dumb shit" yucky...

947 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-9115 12:21

I didn't mean post really shitty things, just that it's more casual and you don't need a really impressive idea to post it. It's different for corporate accounts, where there's typically more effort per post, and you also schedule uploads too. But for a personal account, salience is important.
If you never tweet, people will forget that you exist. If you tweet more often, people will remember and like you more, unless you post complete garbage. But if your tweets are acceptable quality, that's all that matters. They don't have to be masterpieces.

I just shit blood. Cute how it takes this pale shade of pink in low volumes.

You're lucky I can get along with anybody, you worthless fuck.
