Idea: a chain of popup stores. (I don't know what it even means, but it seems like everything is now either a chain or a popup store.)
Boxxy is about to explode into LonelyGirl15 proportions. UPDATE: Waxy transcribes the video inside, it made Buzzfeed, and this thing will only get bigger throughout the day.

I love that Andy did the one thing that I'd actually wanted but thought no one would ever do.
And again, I raise the idea of a 4chan documentary. Not crazy investigative - God knows what would happen then - I just think it'd be fascinating to see the people behind the /b/.

I've thought about doing a full magazine profile (the NYMag profile touched on Moot), but I imagine a documentary would be impossible. The entire modus operandi is to take down "camwhores" -- people who are trying to get attention online. So I don't think anyone would participate. Then again, getting them to participate would sorta expose the entire project as a sham.
(Related: how about documentary on Anonymous? The fascinating thing about them is they get EVERYTHING blamed on them. I think it's just a word that random people tag to things that they now do. It's like a universal internet pseudonym.)

Balk: "This whole thing is kind of like... The Matrix! Hahaha, kidding. But it is like one of those dispatches from the survivors of some horrible, civilization-destroying catastrophes you see in sci-fi movies, except the civilization was a PLANET OF RETARDS."

Isn't Moot going to be at ROFLCon? I kind of want to go just to see him. I do like how this Boxxy episode has forced /b/ to come to terms with itself.
posted by katiebakes at 9:25 AM on January 20, 2009
Yeah, he is. I'm trying to get someone to publish an interview with him, actually.
posted by Rex at 9:27 AM on January 20, 2009
I wrote the Guardian piece you linked to above, Rex, thanks.
I met Moot briefly at ROFLCon last year, but he didn't talk very much - but he did seem quite concerned that /b/ had become a hellhole.

For what it's worth, I didn't actually do the transcription myself. (If I had, there would've been less typos.) I found it on the discussion page for the Boxxy entry on Encyclopedia Dramatica.

She has tourette syndrome, it's obvious from the little screams she did in FOAR ANT FRUM BOXXY (watch from 2:30).
Basically she is always trying hard to avoid to do these short screams. She does physical ticks to calm her mind. Because when she gets too excited she probably do these screams. She seems very intelligent and aware of this problem and try to conceal it the best way she can.
I've met someone with the exact same condition, behavior and attitude. They tend to be extremely happy and love everyone. Not fake, no acting, it is just too hard to fake tourette syndrome accurately for the whole length of the video at this age.
If you don't believe me and want to learn more, ask a specialist to watch FOAR ANT FRUM BOXXY from 2:30.
