'she did what to her child?' edish
I am anticipating the day that Jenny Nicholson publishes her first book, with a sort of morbid curiosity given that shes a You-pseud.

How did she get published, anon? Surely someone as unknown as Lindsay Ellis would have a difficult time finding an agent, or someone to publish her book. You don't think she somehow used her fame to get her book published, do you?

It's because they don't know how to write, nor do they think too much because their job involves reaction as opposed to well thought out and planned action. Ghost writers all write the exact same book but change the name because the tropes are so easy and suburban mothers all lap it up. Why would someone who stands in front of a camera suddenly be good at writing long form 400 page books about themselves or a particular subject?

>> No.17678978

It would have to suck being her. Brainwashed into this half baked materialism, she kills her kid and has to live the rest of her life filling the void that created. There is nothing more pathetic than a 35 year old childless woman. They're like trannies in a way that when I see them I can absolutely know that they're addicted to porn. When I see these washed up broads I can know that they valued drugs and cock over what's good in life. In both cases they're empty shells of human beings and if they're strong enough to avoid suicide they're going to be miserable the older they get, and the makeup becomes less effective at hiding who they are.

>> No.17678997

Yeah, the part of it that stuck out to me was his explanation of athletes who simply act and react to stimuli instead of constantly analyzing it and thats why they can't write or do decent interviews because the whole
>"How did you feel about this game?"
>"well, we scored more points and worked hard"
is literally the extent they "think" about things.

>> No.17679016

I always think the saddest thing about Lindsay Ellis and other fuckups like Contrapoints is that they're clearly smart and creative, they aren't total retards or anything, but they live in a world (woke progressivism) where the smartest you're allowed to be is a midwit. The highest post in the land is "peak midwit." Anything above that is too elitist for the progressive worldview. So they hit that point and then try to lie to themselves that their hordes of literally mentally retarded normalfag fans are enough to fill the void, as you say, but you know damn well that tranny fag Contrapoints sees the normies as demi-conscious subhumans. Lindsay probably does too but lies to herself that "we're all equal, we're all just having fun on this wild wacky earth :^) time to go to another theme park, I love fun!" and that it's a perfectly good use of her mind and her creativity to make watered-down critical theory videos about Disney remakes.

She must constantly sense that she is the queen of the kiddie table. She must feel the at least occasional vertigo of being an adult in a room full of children, with no exits. But she's stuck, what's she gonna do, redo the last 20 fucking years of adulthood and base her life on something other than her MA in film studies? After all, she excelled beyond her mediocre normie peers in regurgitating the progressive crit theory jargon stuff and doing creative pop culture critiques, and it made her stand out when she was 22! That's worh building a life on! She was destined for this!

It has to eat away at them. People capable of great creativity and productivity were simply not meant to lie to themselves that the plebs are their peers forever. You don't have to despise the plebs to know they're not your peers. Being "head pleb" is not a substitute for letting your excellence shine.

Watch her vid about the process. An agent thought her work had promise and she could demonstrate that she had an audience already. I suspect that her having built an audience with videos, memes, and digital platforms would be part of the pitch an agent would make to publishers.

It's more cynical than that. The entire publishing industry now revolves around find influencers who already have audiences and then getting them to write books. You know all those "booktube" girls? What do you think that is? If they have even 10,000 followers on Instagram and Youtube, they can make enough sales to eclipse the profitablity of the average published and promoted fiction book from the '90s and '00s. Back then, publishers had to take chances with promising authors and promote them. Now, the model is much simpler. Find someone who has a captive audience already. It's quite brilliant. But it's also why 98% of new publications are by hyperactive 19 year old airhead teeny boppers writing vampire fantasy romance.

Lindsay Ellis has a massive audience. She will be far more profitable than big name fiction authors of the '90s and '00s who actually receive mainstream media attention and have the wheels greased through paid promotion in rags like the New Yorker. Her Youtube audience and public profile, even as a mediocre retarded woman on the internet, makes her the equivalent of a once in a decade cashcow by '90s publishing industry standards.

I feel bad for spoony. His only opportunity to be father snatched away from him because lindsneed wanted to spend the rest of her life writing shitty books. That must be really heartbreaking though, you’re good enough for a shag and a laugh but not good enough to have kids with, you can tell that’s what broke him.

Well I don't know about any of that but well what has really been making me giggle lately is this idea this thought that I had the other day of some little African-American or even African student perhaps even graduate he is even quite smart perhaps if a bit effete and with the glasses of course and the close hair who takes it upon himself one day to read even study a bit of Faulkner. He opens up Light in August or Absalom, Absalom! and he knew of course perhaps even understands the need perhaps even is capable of placing himself outside of the reading but every nigger and every negroe and every monkey nigger and baboon and animal grinds on him just that small bit until he is of course incensed is utterly maddened at old Willy Cuthbert Faulkner who died some time ago and well I just giggle I just laugh so hard

If you anons are interested in something a little less ubiquitous, might I recommend my Call of the Horror series? I have almost all 4-5 star reviews on each of my books and don't rely on a JewTube platform to sell myself, nor did I kowtow to ((their)) big publishing industry.

I don't know why these people always try to be novelists. what she does on youtube with her video essays is criticism/analysis. being able to point out good and bad things in a disney movie doesn't mean you're creative enough or skilled enough to make your own work.

these types would be MUCH better off staying in their own lane and publishing some non fiction work of literary/cultural analysis than trying to write fiction, but instead they can't help but indulge their own fantasy of becoming a famous novelist even though original ideas aren't what they got e-famous for.
