There comes a point in every* blog’s life where the first sentence of each post begins with something like, “Man, so sorry it’s been so long since we’ve last posted…”
BUT NOT US.
No… this time, we’re gonna ignore that** and move right into some content. Multimedia content.
Bloggers and YouTubers ’2 Broke Geeks’ have updated their series with a 2-part video that rips our core principle right out of our hands and, well… does a much better job of what we do than we do, despite it not even being their main schtik. Did I spell that right? I’d better ask 2 Broke Geeks, since they do everything better than us.
You watched part two, right? Damn straight you did.
I feel that I’m somewhat qualified to provide commentary on the topic, being that I used to write for a blog called Star Wars Vs Star Trek. Once you strip away the cheap gimmicks like “adequate lighting”, “quality editing”, “informative content”, and “attractive, entertaining hosts”, what’s really left in this video? I’ll tell you what: the raw unadulterated truth that Star Trek outshines Star Wars in every metric that matters***. They just had the decency to spare the feelings of Team Star Wars by not declaring the obvious winner in the video itself.
So, where does this leave us? Well, for one thing, I won’t have to worry about original content for the blog for another six months or so… I can just keep posting segments of this video series with the timecode indexed slightly for each post. Intellectual property doesn’t exist in the future****.* -YES I MEAN ‘EVERY’. EVEN THE SUCCESSFUL ONES. YOUR DAY WILL COME, NERDIST. AND… GEEKOLOGIE WRITER…
** – unless you were paying attention *** – specifically, the ones in which Star Trek came out ahead **** – what are ya gonna do, huh? Sue me with your broke dollars?
