It's not really our fault, it's Youtube's fault for systematically burying everything this site exists for.

Binro the Heretic - 2019-11-09

And people just aren't putting out genuinely weird amateurish stuff anymore. There's plenty of people doing parodies of that stuff, but it's not as much fun to laugh at or poke fun at.

And it's hard to find fun in the mildly evil stuff when our nation is in the grip of genuine evil.

Clearly our job is to create this bad material ourselves then.

Hazelnut - 2019-11-13

There's a sort of touching naivete to much of the all-time Favorites list: I don't think a new Garbage Day, POP!, or Zombie kid would have the same impact on us today.

And that's okay. The whole point of an evolving conversation is not to keep going in circles. Trump getting booed at the World Series with chants of "Lock Him Up!" echoing the cry in every remaining decent American's breast is a different kind of horror-humor amateur hour.

Some of you think you're too good to be the scarecrow.

William Burns - 2019-11-09

Maybe we should go talk to Worf again.

The Mothership - 2019-11-09

Objection: Hearsay.

POETV was founded in the ashes of POE, and the raison d'etre of our little site is to make fun of the videos that people post to the public sphere, just like POE was purposed to make fun of web 1.0 sites.

Your Honor, I hereby submit as evidence that POETV is alive and healthy, the following:

People still submit crazy ass shit to the interwebs, and we still comment and post our ridicule.

The defense rests.

Hey let's get that beer, Mothership!

The Mothership - 2019-11-09

How far away from downtown San José are you?

exy - 2019-11-10

About a highway 17 away. But I work the odd gig over there.

The Mothership - 2019-11-12

are you on the POETV emergency facebook list? Find me there. The picture of me is smoking a cigar.

exy - 2019-11-12

I never touch FB, but if you still have whatever email you used for 54evil I can reach you that way. (Pretty sure I'm still paying for the DB hosting, the domain just got swiped.)

The Mothership - 2019-11-13

Yes, please feel free to contact me directly if you still have access there.

The Mothership - 2019-11-18

Exy you haven't called me, don't you find me sexy anymore?

exy - 2019-11-20

Haha not it at all! I've just been under a pile of stupid chores so I haven't tried to get myself into the 54E database yet. Soon!

exy - 2019-11-20

Turns out I can't get into the DB anymore, presumably a side effect of the 54evil domain having been snatched. I've opened a support ticket to figure out how to get in there. So, almost as soon!

Even those of you I dislike are still in higher standing than most people I know in meatspace.

Aernaroth2 - 2019-11-09

Good way to make a statement, but I for one wouldn't bet against the internet's ability to deliver funny, bad, or downright weird content.

Maybe users like me just need to step up our games and submit more content.

Robin Kestrel - 2019-11-09

I’m not on any social media, so the main way I find new videos is by a) this site front paging them or b) YouTube recommending them to me.

POE users have some really interesting recommendations that the YouTube algorithm would probably miss.

Hazelnut - 2019-11-09

Same here. Poetv introduced me to Auralnauts, Everything is Terrible, 5 Second Films, Honest Trailers, Stroke Guy / Red Letter Media, Cyriak, Kurzgesagt, Primitive Technology, and Lasagna Cat. I like the mix of the amateurish stuff and the slick stuff.

I'd even go so far as to say poetv taught me a lot: for instance a lot of thought provoking material by Contrapoints, or how ancient copper smelting worked.

Accidie - 2019-11-09

well, i need a drink.

Marlon Brawndo - 2019-11-10

I tried to bring you something new and interesting. I guess now you'll just have to spend eternity playing planet croquet.

Two Jar Slave - 2019-11-10

As if you people will ever get tired of hearing yourselves talk.

Two Jar Slave - 2019-11-10

Sorry, that was uncalled-for.

Jet Bin Fever - 2019-11-24

Every time I come here I feel so old
