There’s a website that I started to check out every now and then around a year ago. Basically, it’s a video based website (think Youtube) that was initially geared towards the Hiphop community by showcasing interviews, music videos, etc.
Not sure exactly when, but at some point it evolved into pretty much a one stop shop to see clips of about any and everything ranging from current events in the media to the most random (and often disturbing) acts ever caught on camera.
I think it’s safe to say that it’s the leader at this point in terms of websites of it’s nature based off total viewership and web traffic.
Without a doubt, I’ve contributed quite an amount to the daily visits. I’m always on it!
Thus, I’ve made a decision to abstain from going on anymore.
I’m not passing judgement on the individuals who run or frequent the website. To many, it’s considered pure entertainment. Another angle to look at it could even be to say that it is quite efficient in how it reminds us that we currently live in a world filled with individuals of all kinds who all have different views on life and how they choose to live it.
Let me put it this way. A good seven out of ten times after visiting the website, I end up going offline with an uneasy and sorrow filled feeling. The sorrow doesn’t only come from knowing that there’s bad stuff occurring to so many people. It’s mainly knowing that there are people who find pleasure in viewing it.
I must say, some of the stuff I’ve seen on there is pretty sick and twisted. That might just be reflective of the times we live in.
Nonetheless, I do still find myself curious as to what the latest daily uploads are so it’ll be a personal challenge to stay away.
To each his own.
