it's like there's an anxiety about being seen as not intelligent causing people to mass consume trivia about topics they have no real interest in and a bunch of youtube channels like in a nutshell, crash course, wisecrack etc have come to fill in the void
there was a video about the history of japan released a few days ago that is so entry level there's no way an earnest interest in japanese history could be motivating people to watch it, they watch it so they don't "fall behind"
it's sparknotes for people too lazy to read sparknotes dressed up in a TRENDY FUNNY pop culture wrapper
i first heard of it on /lit/ and expected some classic ebaumsworld type of thing where NiggaMcDingdong was gonna be swearing about stupid fucking honkeys in the great cucksby or something but it's even worse, it's old out of touch men who think it's funny to wear rapper clothes
>>7682727 I think it's sad that something so all encompassing and society-transcending as literature has to be conveyed through socially accepted memes and clowning. If it gets people into literature, or if it entertains people, that's nice, but good literature isn't deserving of this, I think. If you want ''thug notes'' just get an actual ex-convict who read books to explain why he likes them. Mike Tyson sounds like a good candidate, actually. I'd love to hear him expound on literature some more.
Just top results from googling Mike Tyson literature, I forgot which article I fully read once, but it was really good. Talking about Alexander and other great men conquering the world just to get away from their mothers, etc.
