I'd absolutely end up a low-tier artcow, i'm positive. Especially if i end up getting artbux on some kind of porn art patreon, which will probably happen sooner or later, since people make incredible amounts of money just for drawing a few cocks.

It depends what you're famous for. People who are famous as a "personality" tend to flame out fast.

People who demonstrate a talent seem to have the (relatively) lower threshold of just fucking their own shit up that normal famous have, whether famous for music, art (non porn), cartoons, etc, those people seem to have a more natural rate of fuckup

People who try to play "political commentator" or treat Youtube like a standup comedy club or try to be successful Twitch streamers tend to lose it in about a year or two after becoming famous.

You could say I was a low tier lolcow way back when, but I 'd also say that a lot of my stuff still holds up as legitimately good in a non-ironic manner. Really, having a job to distract and eat up my time has made my online persona just a shadow of what it used to be.

Probably if I started YT in my teens or early 20's or continued trying to be a hack fraud artist past art school.

I feel like those who grew up with just the internet without much real world contact are most eligible to becoming a cow.

It seems to me like this is a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy. Hear me out: People who put themselves in the public sphere intentionally and repeatedly, especially those who began doing it when YouTube was merely a hobby and not something that paid a wage, are almost required to be some level of lolcow. The people who dislike or can't handle that level of attention tend to shrink away from it, or at the very least ignore it as best they can. Even Jim/Metokur is kind of like this, where if he gets too involved in gay shit he stops making videos and deletes his account.

It's definitely possible to become "internet famous" by accident, like Arduino Versus Evil did, but generally speaking we'd never become lolcows because none of us have had the inclination to go out and make asses of ourselves on the internet for fame in the first place. You can probably count the number of sane, uncontroversial e-celebs on one hand.

Absolutely. I love pitch-black edgy humor, but for every Mumkey Jones, there are a thousand unfunny exceptional individuals. It would be pretentious to think that I wouldn't fall under the latter category. If that sounds reassuring, then consider how simply knowing or articulating that you fuck up isn't an excuse for actually fucking up (see: superficially self-aware masochist Dan Harmon). No matter how many levels of irony you operate on, your delusions can run even deeper.

Internet fame by design makes it easier to attract individuals with poor social skills. Other endeavors like standup and music at least involve some level of interaction and direct feedback from an audience.

I mean it’s just you in your room alone talking/ sperging about some niche topic to no one directly. That’s a bit loony when you think about it. Factor in the ability to create your echo chamber through social media and a lolcow is bred.

I’d probably a low tier cow for the record for drama and being a forever alone-ish type.

I'd become a low-tier cow then make it a mission of mine to get my own subforum on this site. Once people had their laughs I'd abruptly cease all lolcow activites and become aggressively normal, acting like nothing happened.

If "Musicow" was a thing, then I might end up there. I'd be in that low-ish level of lolcowdom.
Breddy much exactly what I was going to say: if you are into playing music and or creative enough, ya gotta be autistic on some level.

I mean I am old enough to have actually been around dot matrix printers as a kid and remember having a want to make music with the damned things. Now you can just convert any song to MIDI and run it through a program for the printer itself. To date I really respect the effort that went into developing said software and thats autistic as all fuck.

Art and music kind of curve what would normally be really weird and even antisocial tendencies. Its kind of like autism begone or at least a personal tardwrangler of sorts. For example: musicians ONLY want to play what THEY want to play when they first gitg00d then they slowly learn to accommodate their peers and generally magic themselves into friends and pussy... if they arent already a lost cause that is.

everyone loves horrible music and over confidence, or just horrible music when a musicfag too

When I was younger I definitely would’ve been a low tier or high tier lolcow because I thought I knew everything and was easily offended. My lolcowdom would’ve been directly proportionate to the amount of subscribers I had. If I had a bunch of fans I would have bought into the cult of personality since I had a large ego. More importantly younger me craved attention, so I’d say and do stupid things if it got me views.

Now I don’t have the time to make videos. Even if I did, it’d be something I did on the side as a hobby. The point would be for my own amusement rather than being efamous. I also wouldn’t bother to interact much in the comments because I’d be too lazy. I also have thicker skin and wouldn’t take comments personally.

I no longer shave my legs. It's been about a year and now that the sun is coming out my pants are getting shorter.

I chimped out on my half sister over Facebook because of my hairy legs in a recent picture and had to delete the application before I took on the entirety of My friends list (even the well meaning) out of rage. I didn't realize how defensive I am still around her but I'm certain if it was anyone else I wouldn't have acted like a toddler about it.

So I think I'd be a prime feature on KF if my social media accounts ever went public. For the sake of my children I hope this never happens.
