Divorce by YouTube

From a reader:

I had no idea who/what MirandaSings was until yesterday. Essentially an obnoxious/awkward female character performed by a woman named Colleen. She married a guy named Josh and their entire relationship has been part of their youtube fame by putting it out there.

The interesting part was looking at their respective announcement videos about getting a divorce.

With Josh you can see the confused and hurt beta male.

With Colleen you can see a woman putting on a show but just under the surface you can see she's either already got a trade-up on line or is prepared to hook one.

Anyways, the body language in the videos says more than I could.

I know nothing of them, but I can't say I'm surprised. Any couple that lives its life in public is at vastly higher risk of separation than one that doesn't. That's one of the many reasons Spacebunny and I keep our private life, and our family, to ourselves.

Most people today live their lives in the reflection of others' eyes. They have no inward focus, no standard of self-judgment, and have no aspirations for self-improvement.

Such people are the masses.

Those who base their own happiness on the image reflected from others are addicted to a drug that never sates. Misery is their lifelong condition.

Maybe it's an act.

Damn that chick is ugly.

Gayest possible world.

That dude needs Jesus and Roissy.

Damn that chick is ugly.

She's not bad... considering her severe case of (((skypeface))).

Daniel said...

Wow. I played them both for two seconds apiece with no sound.

He's a legitimate fool and she's faking pain for sympathy. He's dumbfounded and she's found dumbo.

Whisker biscuit said...

I had to switch both of them off after a minute.

She's fake amd fame obsessed.

He's a wimp.

I'm sure there's a mud shark phase in her future, while he will play the sympathy card for scraps until he starts sucking men off.

Colleen: "Josh and I are getting a divorce"

Josh: "Colleen is divorcing me.... I don't want this.... This is her decision...."

Notice how women address their own bad conduct as something that happened to her. She didn't choose it or actively participate in it. It "just happened" to her. She was a passive observer and it "happened to" her. She just was there when it "occurred".

Meanwhile, Josh jumps on the grenade and takes full responsibility, even for that which isn't his doing or fault.

Women have a very ,very hard time taking responsibility for their bad conduct.

Beta men take responsibility even for that which is not their responsibility.

The most loving thing a man can do is take responsibility only for that which is his, and nothing more. Make your woman own her shit.

Going by what is commonplace I would say she is role playing, acting out the way she thinks she should act in the situation. Not necessarily faking it entirely, but not really feeling it emotionally either. As she seems to be dominant, I wonder if the whole relationship wasn't her acting out life the way she things it is supposed to go. Some women seem to get off on both the pleasure and the pain, and feel unfulfilled unless they get both. That is why they got off so big on Princess Diana. She had it both ways, got to be a princess and then had real or imagined grievances. Fame and glory along with pity all wrapped up in one.

As for him, I could feel more sorry for him if he was less pathetic.

The key component in the phrase "attention whore" is "whore".

She looks like Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones. Only in America 2016 would she have hand in a relationship. And then people wonder why I live in a world of obscure music circa 1966. The modern world of YouTube "stars" and the like holds little interest.

Verne said...

That poor guy. His ex just shattered his illusions of love. All she lost is this years fairy princess fantasy. He is young and entering his best years. She is leaving hers. The worm is turning

I suppose people who aren't literary minded and aspiring writers can do on video what so many poetic and prosaic people have done in past ages and continue to do today -- pour their every reflection, amusement, anxiety, and observation out on the page for the sake of attention and applause (and money).

I can't fault people for doing on video what so many do every second in prose on blogs, in magazines, clickbait confessions, and so forth.

People want to be known. They want to be on stage where life feels heightened because others are watching, paying attention. If you've ever acted in a play, performed music publicly, or appeared in a debate, there's an interesting frisson in being yourself and somebody else at the same time.

For instance, I have been a virtuoso in fingerstyle guitar, and I found as many other musicians have noted, that I practiced with more focus and intensity when I knew another was overhearing me at it.

You may be a lousy actor, musician, or arguer and become risable in others eyes, but the impulse is the same for everyone -- look at me! Listen to me! I want to be important to you!

Vox isn't any different in that respect, nor all of us who comment for the sake of amusement, approbation, or enmity.

I am one cold-hearted son-of-a-gun... That chick's video makes me laugh!

And the fact that over 3 million people have seen the guy's video, and over 6 million people have seen the chick's video makes it all the more hilarious!!!!!!

My advice for that guy:

Hit the gym. Hard. Bench Press. Deadlift. Squat. Overhead Press. Keep this in mind: "Progressive Overload is your friend." Do also those exercises several times a week for a year.

He should also get a pair of decent gloves and make a punching bag his bitch.

Assume that after every workout, you're going to step into a real-life "Alien vs. Predator" movie, and workout accordingly!

His knuckles, elbows and knees need to be bloody when he steps out of the gym. He should also enroll in a decent Jiu Jitsu and/or Krav Maga school for a year or two as well.

That'll solve all his problems.

A pair of adultolescents try to do something that grownups do (getting married) and then fail at it (surprise, surprise). Thank God that at least they didn't breed.

No, I haven't checked out their videos and won't be doing so. That would just validate their idiotic, juvenile behavior and criminally waste my life-minutes.

manuel hernandez said...

My best guess of how their marriage collapsed (bear in mind, I've never heard of them before, not that that's a bad thing) is, one of them got surprise buttsecks and the other one got triggered.

Saw a trailer on HBO today for a new series called "Divorce". Guess the good old days of trying to whitewash betrayal behind a title like "Eat, Pray, Love" are behind us.

The wife is played by 51-year-old Sarah Jessica Parker. She looks like the carousel broke down years ago and there's not enough lithium grease in the world to get it started again.

CarpeOro said...

Sarah Jessica Parker... you have to go back as far as the movie she did with Bruce Willis for her to be semi-attractive. That of course was the beauty of youth. Never saw her as attractive.

Erynne said...

LooooooooooL! 1 year of marriage is all she could put out. Had a sneak look at the wedding video and it's funny to see how serious and emotional people are when the vows are being taken, where the beta male thinks he's in this for life, and it's all a stupid charade so she could have her special day. My wife dropped the divorce word a lot in our first year of marriage, I had to strangle the thought of divorce in its cradle, and she hasn't said it since (although I recognize it could come back anytime I get weak, it's helpful to know you have the power to control it, instead of naively assuming it will never happen or come up again).

This kid shot a little above his league, but he's probably lucky she got rid of him. It's better to break it off early then wait half a decade or more, or worse, have kids, like I've seen some of my acquaintances do.

@Aeolia Pera

"That dude needs Jesus and Roissy."

Yea, rather, that man needs JESUS and JESUS ONLY. Only JESUS Saves. Roissy leads men into fornication/adultery and the heathen mindset. Roissy himself NEEDS JESUS. lol. Amen.

Rex Little said...


Would someone please explain what it means when you put triple parens around a word? I've seen it numerous times but haven't been able to decipher the meaning from context.

BassmanCO said...

Rex Little,

((())) = Jewish, usually the obnoxious neocon or New York liberal variety.

Bullitt315 said...

You’ve probably already shaped your opinions on last year’s sexual assault accusation"
and if your opinion is that he somehow, someway, did something wrong, even though the court and the DA threw the whole rotten, stinking corpse of a case out with the sewage, then you are an idiot.

If you don't know game, no amount of Jesus is going to help you with women. I'd say most guys use game to find a nice girl and not to turn out every slut they can.

residentMoron said...


it's a problem that most people when they hear "you need Jesus" will think about finding a local church, which will probably not teach them that Jesus was a Man who behaved like someone with a Purpose, who was willing to sacrifice his entire existence to that Purpose.

Far more likely they will teach him to run from all risk, to cower like a frightened woman in the face of even mild opposition, and to call this virtue. Far more likely they will teach him to pedestalise women, elevate them far above their station, and lower himself to less than a dog.

That's what he meant by "needs Jesus and Roissy".

I think.

Johnny said...

I could feel more sorry for that guy if he wasn't so pathetic. Get all self pity if you need to but then suck it up and move on.
