And now we come to…the end of an era

Today, oddly enough was supposed to be the pay off FINALLY for a number of posts about relationships that I thought might be better than all my previous ruthless on relationships post. And indeed I’ll get to that later.

 

Instead,

Today is a day I bring us to a place I knew could happen, but was happy every time it didn’t. Today we end the hour for the last time. What do I mean? Today is the beginning of a goodbye party. For this blog. Oh it will continue to exist, but a transition is afoot. And so with all transitions, some things remain the same, while other change or are left behind.

If you would have told me 3 years ago as I was studying for the bar that we would be here I would be shocked. But if you would have told me that we would get here after 450 thousand views I’d also be shocked so much attention happened. Words Don’t Do It Justice started as an idea, a bit of fun, and a lot of me. I have buried hatchets with enemies because of this blog, reconnected with old friends, and made new ones because of this blog, found meaning in the midst of my own personal depression because of this place. I have consumed it, and let it consume me. I love it. But loving this blog means knowing what to do. And taking a good long look I know the thing to do is let it go.

But I said this was transition not destruction.

And indeed it is. I’ll be taking Words Don’t Do It Justice away from our blogging past into a show based future. For me, the question was one of logistics. Was it better to end everything and walk away from these years of effort, or find a way to keep the place alive in the hearts of all of you who have supported us? I choose to believe that you will keep supporting us, and I chose to keep this place alive in a new way.

That means giving you what we planned. Give No Quarter, The Wrath of Ruthless, and Words Don’t Do It Justice are the three pillars of Ruthless Radio. 3 shows with different formats that bring you many of the topics you might see written about here, but in a new form and with some new and old faces/voices. Over the next few weeks as we ready to for the relaunch of Words Don’t Do It Justice as a podcast, you’ll get to read some farewells from various alums, and hear from the incoming folks for these shows. You’ll also see the Words Don’t Do It Justice site itself undergo various changes. With plenty of hard work, luck, and you listening in, I hope to earn your trust for these new shows, and continue to hold our interest.

SO! What about Weekend’s Don’t Do It Justice?

Well I’m happy to say our little casual interest site is growing well. And it is going to continue. We had a nice response to the sample chapter from Project 13, and now that game of thrones is done you’ll see a lot of other reviews, news, and related content there. Our gamers are doing their thing, and if Vantinel’s CEO appearance is any indication of commitment, we will only continue to grow over there.

As I end for now I just want to say thank you, and of course to keep watching what we do. But more than that, thank you for being a force for us. We continued to push because you were there with us. 100,000 visitors, 450,000 views, and 3 years of growth, While things must change, I am glad to have made it to this point. A point that let’s me look back and say that YOU made us more than I imagined. And though Words Don’t Do It Justice…Thank you.

Manly Men are B*tches

Good DaddyI’m a girl. I’m a lady. I am a woman. I am strong and delicate, fierce and gentle. I get to be both. Unfortunately, the world demands that men… that our boys choose a side. What it means to be manly… just one more thing I don’t have any business really speaking on. There’s a lot out there about the messages we send to little girls, and make no mistake, that’s important, but not what this here is about. I need to talk about men, how we raise men, how we program boys, and how important it is that we make some real changes if we’re going to make moves in the right direction for all of our futures.

Sometimes I don’t know what’s more damaging: I understand the importance of teaching boys to be Suck it Upstrong, but for some reason, it’s like they’re not allowed to be balanced. Why are any displays of non-aggressive emotion considered weak? I’d ask why Any indication of weakness is automatically considered feminine, but that’s not what this is about. We raise boys to hold everything in, hide their true feelings, and show only a supposedly manly variety of strength, but expect men to be honest, caring, and sensitive as lovers, compliant, subservient, and malleable as employees, and then be tender, gentle, and patient as fathers… all while maintaining an impermeable armor of masculine strength. Then we wonder why they die younger, are more susceptible to violent outbursts, and more likely to go on killing sprees that end in their own death.

Pink OnsieThe pressure to be manly men starts when they’re born. The suggestion the dressing a baby boy in supposedly girly colors–colors they haven’t even learned to recognize–will somehow make him gay. The assertion that letting a boy play with girls weakens him. The idea that boys have to “toughen up” and can’t cry. In my conversations with guys and gals about what makes a man manly often has more to do with what he does than who he is. Does he work? Does he spend time with his family? Does he act like a man? I honestly don’t really know what that means: “act like a man.” As a matter of fact, it doesn’t seem like most other people really know what it means either. How is it then, that we expect our boys to grow into strong men when we can’t even come up with a definitive answer for what it means to be one?

I think the idea of manliness that we’ve been shoving down our boys throats is Abuseactually feeding a bitch-made mentality. When I say bitch, I don’t mean anything feminine. I mean that we have been raising boys hoping for men, and instead ending up with bitches. They’re over sensitive, homophobic, and moody. Unfortunately, because they’ve been conditioned to hold all of their emotions in, they’re prone to spontaneous combustion. They have a tendency to interpret everything as attacks against their manhood. Of course these are very general statements, and I know that #notallmen are like this. Unfortunately, we’re living in a social climate where everything is taken personally and indifferently at the same time. Every conversation is an opportunity to get defensive or accuse someone of being oversensitive. Even when trying to address and fix these kinds of social problems, we run into this–as the kids would say–bitch-made mentality that makes it impossible to make progress. Here’s my attempt…

A man’s manhood cannot be measured by how many women he beds, hours worked, or dollars spent on material things. Manhood cannot be challenged by anything, if the man in question is truly a man. A an who knows his position, knows his worth, and is fully secure in his manhood does not allow trivialities to diminish his manly swag. A man is honorable, kind, and diligent in all of his undertakings. He keeps his word and is sure to mirror his words with his deeds. He knows his strengths, and does not allow his weaknesses to define him. He understands the importance of partnerships, team work, and family. He works hard, and plays hard. He is balanced. He most certainly strives to Do More & Require Better.

Decorum Deficiency Disorder: F*ck Humility

February was a good month, and it’s looking like March is going to be good too. Yes, this is me tooting my own horn… because f*ck humility. Yesterday (which is today for me) Facebook remembered that March 8th is international woman’s day, and that the whole of March is Women’s History Month. Today being the socially acceptable day to talk about this sort of thing, I’m preempting a piece that I’ve already postponed for a month in favor of Blackness, love, relationships, and “race stuff” in favor of  Yep; it was a good month and I’m riding the wave.

They make songs about how much more attractive a girl can be when she doesn’t act like she knows she attractive. It seems to be a widely known fact that humility is a desirable trait in a woman. People talk about humility like it’s a virtue worth practicing. Humble people are nice to be around because they don’t make you feel like less than you are, other than guilty for not seeming as humble as they are. Let’s take a deeper look…

Humility defined

Humble:
adjective, humbler, humblest.
1. not proud or arrogant; modest: to be humble although successful.
2. having a feeling of insignificance, inferiority, subservience, etc.In the presence of so many world-famous writers I felt very humble.
3. low in rank, importance, status, quality, etc.; lowly: of humble origin; a humble home.
4. courteously respectful: In my humble opinion you are Humble definitionwrong
5. low in height, level, etc.; small in size: a humble member of the galaxy.
verb (used with object), humbled, humbling.
6. to lower in condition, importance, or dignity; abase.
7. to destroy the independence, power, or will of.
8. to make meek

When I look at the definition of humility, it’s no wonder that I’ve ever understood why any sane person would consider humility a good characteristic to emulate. You mean to tell me that even when someone is clearly drenched in awesomeness, they’re supposed to act like they aren’t? And to what end? As if anyone every really likes watching someone acting like they’re less awesome than they are. Here’s an example: Have you ever talked to someone who you think has it all (great life, family, career, finances, home, things, etc.) and hear them talking shit about their life as if you didn’t just see them tip the valet with a 50 dollar bill. Sure, they’re being humble… but their humility seems more like an insult than an equalizer.

You know what they call a confident Woman? A bitch. You know what they call a confident man? A leader. As far as I can tell the idea of humility is one of those things that has only truly served rich men. Disclaimer: I’m not saying that there aren’t any difficulties that come with not being humble or that all seemingly confident men…. you know what, fuck this disclaimer shit too. If you don’t know that there are levels and layers to this and that I’m primarily addressing one aspect of it here because this would end up being a 5 hour dissertation on life and how much it sucks… then stop reading and go back to watching kitten videos on YouTube; This is not meant for you.

Certificate of HumilityAnyway, it seems to me that back when they were writing the so-called holy books, they decided that the best way to keep people in line; to keep people in their places was to convince them that vows of poverty and acts of humility were among the highest forms of piety. In doing so, they could demand levels of obedience and unquestioned subservience that they probably couldn’t have gotten otherwise. Further, they depicted women as inherently unclean and thus even more susceptible to sin and temptation of the flesh, they suggested even stricter penalties and even higher standards piety. Of course I could say that this is all just a theory, but unfortunately, history supports my thesis.

Since our expectations of people, and–for the purpose of this piece–women in particular, hasn’t evolved to fit the construct of modern society, we’re left with a relatively useless standard of humility that mostly serves as another way to diminish women’s willingness to require things like equal rights, respect, and higher pay. We might make better students, we might work harder and be better team players, but having been programmed to be humble, we’re less likely to demand things like raises or interfere when men are making decisions that are counterproductive or inefficient.

So fuck humility. I say claim your awesomeness. I remember back when I was getting my real estate license. I took the class and the test with a then romantic interest. He didn’t think studying or reviewing notes was a valuable use of his time. I remember how angry he got with me when he didn’t pass. Not with the test, not the instructors, but with me. I didn’t even get to celebrate my success because it might further damage his fragile ego. Almost 10 years later and I still kick myself over it. I should have celebrated. I should have focused on my success instead of trying to make him feel better about his failure. It didn’t stop him from resenting me. It didn’t make him appreciate my effort or make him try harder to succeed. Ego stroking doesn’t accomplish anything other than inflating egos that should be left to their own devices. If the only way for one person to feel good about themselves is for you “to lower [yourself] in condition, importance, or dignity” then that isn’t someone you should keep in your life. Your goal should be to surround yourself with people who encourage you to Do More & Require Better… and then celebrate your successes. Fuck Humility. 

And now… at the end of the hour

cropped-wordsdontdoit2-1.jpg

This week we debuted a brand new podcast with a livestream. We said goodbye to one of the founders. We tackled coons, and hoteps. As well as assault, and the HIV & AIDS treatment drug Truvada.

 

 

I skipped a couple lines to let that sink in.

When this started I literally just wanted to take my usual facebook ranting to a website. I figured it would be like the old days of my Xanga page. Now, now I deal with potential sponsors, have production meetings, worry about our average listening and reading time, and look for brand expansion.

I remind you, I was so bored in the last semester of law school I decided to make a blog to archive the things I would normally rant about on Facebook.

 

So you can understand that having gone from that place to now is rather…amazing if I’m honest. I had no idea. We’ve added and lost people over that time. But more than their contributions or mine, we’ve gotten to know a lot of you. As of this writing, 92,000 of you have come to get to know us over these 3 years of Words Don’t Do It Justice. And you must like it here, because you’ve dropped in 302,000 times.

300000

That is astounding. That is epic. And to think that it has all come before we put up a single ad, before we shilled a single product, without a marketing team, and mostly from the effort of our authors, and their friends and family who have additionally believed in us and shared us with other people.  I can’t tell you enough thank you for all you’ve done and continue to do. It really has made the difference.

What that means is even what I’ve done in the past year isn’t enough. I have to do more. And I am. While we lost a podcast co-host today, I’m proud to say we gained 2 new ones for our show Give No Quarter. While we have Reason on break for a while, I’m happy to say we will be launching Weekends Don’t Do It Justice as its own site (www.wkndlife.com www.weekendsdontdoitjustice.net www.weekendsdontdoitjustice.com). Look for a review of a hilariously bad movie coming over there soon from me.

Heck, go buy a shirt, phone case, hoodie or tank. https://www.teepublic.com/user/314publishing

I’m also happy to say that I’m teaming with Mr. 9 to 5 gamer himself Bami O to open a new gaming site and channel called “Save State Society” (www.savestatesociety.com www.savestatesociety.net) here soon as well. And we’re open with some great games and reviews. But that is going to take a lot to talk about, and I’ve got work to do there.

You’re here reading because this is about Words Don’t Do it Justice. The granddaddy of them all. Okay, the origin of them all. Three years in, and even though health wise I’ve dealt with issues. Professional life wise, I’ve had great forward steps but also set backs. Heck life in general being strange. After all that I’m proud of where we are. Where you’ve brought us. And so for the third time we come to the end of the hour. Where I say thank you without any reservations. Where for the third time ever, I get to step out of my role as Head Blogger, Editor, Podcast host, Lucremo, THE Ruthless Wonder, and everything that comes with it, and instead just talk to you as Matt Williams. We have a few reflection pieces and some alumni coming back to give us a piece. And we are going to celebrate all the way to my personal birthday on March 14th. But right now I’m just going to end by saying thank you all for bringing me and us from where we were to where we are and pushing us forward to where we are going next. As always Words Don’t Do YOU Justice.

(Part 2) Note From Your Favorite Super Villain: Harsh Truth is more than a hastag

Part 2

Obviously yesterday was focused on a couple of subjects that I felt pressing enough to be first up. And while I could spend today talking about Joss Wheadon, Jeremy Renner, and the amount of idiots on twitter I’m not. Besides you probably know how I feel about them and Eddie Huang already. But Twitter and internet actions are definitely not escaping today’s part of our multi-part note.

The only recognition you deserve is the recognition you get

Before the internet, and indeed before CNN’s 24 hour news channel, it was commonplace for a lot of interesting and cool stories to get glossed over. There were only so many new stations that could do puff pieces after all. But in 2015 the idea of you deserving recognition is absurd. Why? Because you can either make people pay attention to your achievement or get someone to do it. Let’s hone in on our buddy Twitter really briefly. And in the interest of being somewhat transparent(Amazingly so for a Super Villain), we’ll use my personal twitter as the focus. When I was studying for the bar I had a twitter, and basically didn’t use it. Having set the account up some time before I basically only used it to keep track of funny quotes from certain comedians, and reposting blog posts when WDDIJ opened. I didn’t care. I didn’t have a reason to. And I would go for months not posting anything or even checking it.

So what changed? Well I made a tweet via my facebook link to twitter about @Wrekonize‘s then yet to be released album The War Within. I had been up for some crazy hours studying for the bar exam, and his single Anxiety Attacks had been on repeat. It was just that day’s perfect groove to get the law in my head. But I’ve tweeted about stuff like that before. When Wrek responded I realized how instant the recognition can be. When I brought it up at a show while we got a pic and he remembered, well I figured out something that will b brought up later.

The other big instant AH-HA has been with The Young Turks’ Jayar Jackson(@JayarJackson) in a far more serious moment. Let’s not mince words here. I’m at 1800 followers I’m talking about people who start at 10k. I’m the most vicious pirana, but I’m still jUST a pirana. For all my teeth, one of me is just an annoyance not a threat. But did I pester Jayar, and everyone else at TYT about how lax their Ferguson coverage was? Of course. And the second AH-HA was because Jayar responded. Hell Ana Kasparian who has absolutely no reason to responded(No Cenk though, I’m just a baby pirana). And while I’m not going to say the reason Jayar stepped in to talk the next day on the show was me related, I take some pride knowing he at least maybe thought about it. And the coverage was overall better. Now months later, in prime position to, did he bring it up on Twitter and remind me who has the bigger account? yep. Was it like that moment Jay-Z “I’m all about dollars who the fuck is 50 Cent?” I wish I was that big. But close enough for a metaphor.

The reality of this social media, internet media, modern society of ours is you will only be praised by people if they know to do it. And you will only be recognized by them if you do something. For good or ill we don’t have the quiet pride of melancholy anymore. At various points before you folks have truly shown me that you like us and want more I’ve had our writers and myself submit pieces to bigger places. Why? Because if they or I do it would have made this place bigger regardless of whether or not the person could stay on here. This of course translates to everything in life. Despite people knowing full well how I’m likely to react or respond I’m still subjected to the whims of certain kinds of stupidity. “You should cover __________” is often brought up. Some expected me to talk about Mayweather and take a stand because of his domestic violence issues. Why? Because I’m the blogger they know. Which leads us to harsh truth 3.

You can either engage with people or not. But positive or negative the consequences are your fault.

There is something to be said for the nature of recognition, but you can’t complain about being under the public or your target’s eyes once you put yourself out there. It is why it is important to do things intentionally or not at all. Because the act of “I never wanted this attention” is hollow in modern society. Everyone is everyone not just big brother. So don’t be surprised when people come after you. It is why I often give out a nice warning about deletes from my personal facebook. Anyone can get deleted, at any time for any reason. That’s the price for getting me to pay attention. Negative or positive you engage and you are responsible. Celebrity, average person, or Super Villain blogger Deal with it. And while we’re on responsibility…

Being and idiot is not the default setting

You might say this particular part is all internet focused. But really it is about modern conventions versus the by-gone issues of yesteryear. I say that because the things that we look at now are all about the instant effect on us and society at large. That being the case it is extraordinarily silly that so much is missed by so many. Because even as late as the 80s you had some kind of excuse. Most folks know that the internet made information, both credible and not, more available. What you might not know is that as late as the 80s it could take months for a book not at your local library to be gotten to you from another on loan. Even now, library based learning is difficult. Not so with the web. What does that mean?

It means that there are universities with the entire catalog of their classes online to be taken. It means places like MIT can give away all the information used in every class on the web. It means you don’t have a reason to not know about many things. Let’s talk about a few of them. While most use the web for social purposes, you can easily learn the truth about all the crazy supposed science claims you see. And not by visiting Snopes. A quick google search by highlighting the claim, or the supposed source is there. A good test for more scientific studies is whether or not the person has made it available online. Most studies are in a journal easily accessible. In fact, if you can’t find the journal or study online, it is either brand new, not finished, or hilariously not credible. Why science journals are more credible than Jenny McCarthy’s insane ramblings is the process of peer review. That’s why you hear smart people blast psuedo-science all the time. It can devalue their work, and also without review you wouldn’t be able to trust other information.

I went with science first because for some reason we have been in the midst of a decline for trust in science for the last 15 years instead of increase. And I have a theory, internet bias. You hear enough times about crazy men inhabiting the abandoned gas station on the corner and you are going to at least assume that might have at one point been the case. Well you hear about enough scientists getting paid to come up with crazy results and you’re going to think more are than you are getting told about. Neil Degrasse Tyson recent had a bunch of people get mad all over again about his comment that whether or not you believe in science it is still true. The reason this can be true for science is that the point of science is to constantly attempt to understand the world around us by analyzing it.

But let’s talk about the less fluid. I am subjected to a lot of people who don’t get basic things about society. It is one thing when you have errant grammar. Obviously, I have the problem from time to time as well. But it is another thing entirely when “Who cares about x? You should care about y!” is responded to with “I have no idea what you are talking about.” Recently someone actively tried to avoid losing their position in a discussion by not knowing what “dearth” means. The person was so unwilling to look a word up that they assumed it meant the exact and entire opposite. Apparently reading comprehension is gone from all schools, and basic google searches are beyond people. And yes, while I do believe that having a wonderful book collection is a sign of class, and refuse to date women who don’t have a healthy reading habit as an adult, I don’t say you need to as steep in book tradition. the internet has literally every book to survive into the modern era available in digital format for a fraction of the original cost. There should be no excuse for at least catching the basic reference to things.

It is often like the person who reponds to you talking about a popular tv show or movie by smuggly saying that have better things to do instead of keep up. The last week I don’t care what you are into you knew Avengers Age Of Ultron was a thing that was likely to happen soon. Much of the information in the world is the same way. You may not know about Floyd Mayweather’s track record with women, but you can look it up. You may not know Joss Wheadon proudly calls himself a feminist, but it is easy to look it up. And the same goes for things like police brutality, the effect of abstinence-only education, and of course if there are statistics to back up the claims of the people you repost statuses and tweets from. Not knowing because you haven’t gotten to it yet isn’t bad, but claiming ignorance in discussions is. Which of course gets us to Harsh truth 4.

If you haven’t taken the effort to gain wisdom from all the places we have available, you’re an idiot. And if you get called it on the internet unless you have facts they’re right and you’re wrong.

Long and short, defending yourself from an onslaught in a facebook group or a twitter conversation is daunting, but you have to go get the data. If all you have is emotion and position to argue your point the other person has already won. Think I’m secretly atheist like a couple of weird emailers? Please have more than my clear ability to attack all groups I think are wrong about something at a given time. Think I’m parroting someone else’s work? Go get the piece you think I’m aping, and prove it. I’ve hit the home base communities of friends and fellow WDDIJ writers. You think Ronin likes when I hit his MGTOW buddies for their stupidity? How about Reign and the feminists and or liberals? Revanchist and soldiers or geo-political conflicts? I’m not just a villain I’m a Super Villain. I’m not just anti one group or another. I hate idiots, OPENLY! I go after anyone who is off. No one is safe because of their affiliation. I just don’t spend lots of time on some topics because why should I? Regardless today’s part has been focused on slower topics. And we’re done. Tomorrow is part 3. Because really you know the phrase already. Words Don’t Do It Justice!

Words Don’t Do It Justice: YOU are Forty Thousand Strong on our 2nd Anniversary

Just a reminder where we started.

Just a reminder where we started.

Words Don’t Do It Justice

“It was all a dream.

I used read word up magazine.”

I could keep going with that, but really I don’t feel like quoting too much of anyone else today. So let me address this with the style most comforting.

When this all began it was an idea.

The thought that we could give the world something in this blog that would be read by our friends, maybe a few co-workers and classmates. And every once in a while I’d get to deal with the issues I have to face on a daily basis by just ranting into a text window for 30 minutes to an hour and let the world read. Certainly if we accomplished that I would have called this a successful idea and when the view dwindled I’d close it up and say I had a good time.

But that isn’t what you did. And I say that isn’t what YOU did, because it is true. You are the reason this fun time didn’t turn into just another thing I used to do. YOU made it worth it to find Rufus, Ronin, Roddo, Rebellionista, Realistic Royalty, Princess Devy, Reign, The Revanchist, The Radical Ref, Carl McPhail, Xion, Driving Misty, Rhapsodic, Reason, Kudo, Rhythmic Journey, Revolution In A Jar, causeandeffect88, Bami O, Render Verdicts, Ruminated Thoughts, Keith Labell, Smooth Phuzion, Bree the V, TEH Bobbo, and all the people who wanted to commit but just didn’t have the time to write, be on the podcast, contribute music, or be interviewed.

That wasn’t just me plodding through on my own. That was you reading. That was you sharing. That was YOU telling the world our little corner of the internet was worth checking out. in the first year we did 3500 views. In 2 years we have done 40,000! Because of all of you. And now things are possible that weren’t not long ago. YOU made this happen. People asked me when I started what I expected. They asked me what I wanted. I just wanted people to listen to my thoughts sometimes. It was so simple back then. Now? Now I want the sky and everything beyond. lol just kidding.

Now I want to give you more of what you come here for. So covering Gaming, and other topics, We’re proud to announce that Nine To Five Gamer will be joining us run by Bami O. Look for the official page as well as forums soon. You’re going to read pieces from many of our alumni writers. And that long-awaited revamp/update to the site. I can’t promise you we’ll turn into a Super Villain run Huffington Post by tomorrow. Heck I can’t even promise that by next year. But I can promise we will keep hitting these hot topics with our cold analysis. I can promise we are committed to giving you what you came here for. And I can promise you I WILL NEVER FORGET what drives Words Don’t Do It Justice. Because what drives us is YOU!

My humanity wants to cry by my Super Villainy is smiling too hard and is too excited. Thank you all. THANK YOU. Every super fan. Every random reader Every casual person who checked us out a few times or just once. THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THIS FROM ALL OF US! We couldn’t have done all this without you. Words Do Not Do YOU Justice!
