Today I shall upload my 33rd YouTube video of the calendar year.
This realisation caused me to reflect on the 33rd videos of previous years.
As many of you know, I like to number all of my videos. For one thing, it helps me to keep track of them.
I first began uploading videos to my YouTube channel in 2015.
Below are reuploads of JLB1533, JLB1633, and JLB1733.
Like most of my hundreds of YouTube videos, they are now set to ‘private’ on YouTube.
Slowly but surely I am reuploading these ‘archive’ videos to my Vimeo account, far away from the cretins of teh ‘troof movements’.
If there are old videos which you would like to see reuploaded, let me know here and I will take care of it.
JLB1533 – WDIL ‘Flat Earth Special’ Betting Markets (18-Jun-2015)
JLB1633 – Is Flat Earth Like a Religion? (11-Apr-2016)
JLB1733 – 9/11 In Sync: Coincidence and Meaning in Art (4-Apr-2017)
I couldn’t help but notice a progression:
1533 was about mocking those who said that we are not allowed to discuss Flat Earth because it would ‘hurt teh troof movements’.
For those new to the scene, ‘We’ll Do It Live’ imploded and disbanded shortly after their special episode dedicated to attacking me. Most of their regular panel have since disappeared from the internet.
1633 was about mocking those who said that we are not allowed to discuss the problems with Flat Earth.
For those new to the scene, the Flat Earth ‘community’ did indeed become an openly-religious cult, exactly as predicted. Many of the original ‘community’ members disappeared and/or were ostracised for daring to speak out. I stopped paying them attention about a year ago. Who knows how far they have descended since then.
1733 was about a concept and field of inquiry so far beyond mere cosmology that it makes the previous work seem trivial.
See this post for more detail about my own journey through ‘sync’.
And now 1833 will be about the question: is it okay to hold and discuss ‘crazy’ opinions in general?
JLB1833 – Is It Okay To Discuss ‘Crazy’ Opinions? (13-Apr-2018)
In a way, it is almost like things have come full circle. Or done a figure eight.
If there is a 1933, it will be interesting to see if it fits in with the pattern identified here.
Only time will tell.
