OmLaLa on YouTube (self.asktrp)

submitted by Senior ContributorOmLaLa

If I made RP-based YouTube videos for the community, would you watch them?


[–]awayofthought 25 points26 points  (13 children)

Definitely. You give good advice here in asktrp

[–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 5 points6 points  (12 children)

I only do what I can. I'm glad it's been helpful.

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Why is this getting downvoated?

    [–]xwm 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Because anything GLO says is instantly controversial.

    [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 4 points5 points  (7 children)

    What's a GLO?

    [–]NPIF 2 points3 points  (5 children)

    GayLubeOil. Also, it's funny you would make this post today considering last night I made my first vlog on this topic and want to refine the content. Are you open to collaboration and creating a list of topics and content the community could benefit from? I was thinking either a vlog or pod cast style program.

    [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

    I am definitely open. I believe in a certain consistency and formulaic approach to videos, so once I've determined and established that I'd be happy to.

    [–]NPIF 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    I agree, consistency in format from video to video will be helpful in building a subscription base. I'm going to go with a podcast style to start, and will upload the first one this weekend. I'll tag you in it when it's up.

    [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    And I'll take a look at it.

    You got it.

    [–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (1 child)

    yes

    [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    K.

    [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (8 children)

    Yes. Youtube is almost 100% full of the usual SJW narrative with very little to watch apart from music videos and pranks. I am not much of an internet person but at least I'll have a third option.

    Oh yes, there are also MGTOW and MRA videos. MGTOW is alright. MRA is cringeworthy. TRP trumps both, so why not.

      [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (5 children)

      Girlwriteswhat makes some good videos and is one of the few MRAs I can actually tolerate and watch on youtube. I do not like her pedestalisation on TRP though. There was recently a AMA held here for her where users were happy to have a Matriarchal figure to ask some very dumb questions to.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 1 point2 points  (4 children)

      What is an MRA?

      [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

      Mens Rights Activist. It all sounds noble till you realise they've got their own tacky version of equality that focuses too much on whinging about pointless double standards.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

      Oh I've seen those guys around. If RP theology ever became main stream, their the ones that would jump in and claim it as theirs.

      They're like men who never left anger phase.

      [–]1grubek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      They are just very confused because of decades of feminist indoctrination. But I came here from there, and I don't think I would have appreciated trp, without men's rights as transition. Trp comments are upvoted usually. They recognize there are biological differences between men and women, they recognize how misleading feminists are, but they are too down the rabbit hole to really let go their manly attitude and dominance. But there is a lot of cross membership between the two communities.

      [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      They're like men who never left anger phase.

      Yes, man. Perfectly put.

      If RP theology ever became main stream, their the ones that would jump in and claim it as theirs.

      Lol. The writing is on the wall on that one.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      It's at least worth giving a shot.

      [–]everythingisthrown 5 points6 points  (2 children)

      I love listening to things such as audio books, if you make videos I'd love to watch them but if you could make it understandable without necessarily watching it that'd be great.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I do the same thing, so I will try to cater to that when I can.

      [–]Sarah_Connor_Is_Fab 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Oh, fantastic. Almost like a podcast, I would definitely listen.

      [–]MentORPHEUS 6 points7 points  (1 child)

      Personally, I'm a reader, not a watcher. I love your writing; Youtube is a different paradigm with a different userbase.

      If you do, don't stop writing!

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Won't happen anytime soon.

      [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      Yes certainly, but only if you use your real voice and not one of those robotic voice overs.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      You have my word.

      [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

      Would it be all sorts of RP topics, or would you mainly focus on one topic or another? Say, game or theory or Alpha example, etc.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

      I'd cover all areas, but maybe focus on more real world applications and leave the purely theoretical discussions for my posts.

      [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I'm guessing they'd be beginner to intermediate in content information. Personally, you could tackle topics that don't get touched on enough here or the video medium would provide a better understanding of, like IDGAF attitude, or maybe a day in the life of yourself. Your habits, how you conduct yourself. That might be too much personal info to put on display, but monkey see monkey do is a good way to learn.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I think some of the more vague RP terms like frame and scarce mentality could me covered much more effectively through a video medium.

      [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      As someone who frequents YouTube as a source of learning for my hobbies, it'd be nice to see some RP stuff in the feed.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I can't think of many purely RP YouTube channels with consistent posts. Theres a ton of MGTOW though.

      [–]Graybrownshoes 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      I enjoy and learn from your analysis of topics. I think a Youtube channel would be great, because at some point TRP should be seen in action. There is a difference with having tact and understanding the environment, and reading off a script.

      The PUA community has videos up on youtube to show both successes and failure to motivate others to start approaching others. If you could incorporate more than FRs on video like PUA (Although it'd be great to see you do so), than I think it'd be a video that the community and yourself could look at. For example, maybe a display of powertalk with an employee, or a boss. Obviously, you can't record 24/7, but on some examples, maybe a recreation of the scene - if you get that far into the youtube commitment.

      Another thing, would privacy be a concern? For both commenters (As youtube can be linked to gmail accounts), and visual recognition of both you/subjects. If you do choose to censor faces, it also takes away from the reality, microexpressions can't be seen. Obviously, it is your life, from your eyes, if you choose to analyze someone via microexpressions, we would have no understanding of what their baseline is. So for all purposes, your words would have to be even more credible.

      Another idea I was thinking of was failure? I know a majority of new TRPers write about breaking BP habits, but there are times when even the best fail. You are held in very high regard in this community due to your writing style and intelligence. Improvements could also be a part of your Youtube videos to touch base with the newer/older TRP members.

      Only if you have kittens in it.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 2 points3 points  (5 children)

      I'm more of a dog person.

      [–]Merica911 1 point2 points  (4 children)

      So yes or no on the kittens?

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 3 points4 points  (3 children)

      They'll be playing as the extras in my videos.

      They'll be playing the very important role of "Dog Food".

      [–]Merica911 0 points1 point  (2 children)

      Have the dog eat the kitten, I don't care, just get a kitten in the vid!

      I'm more than capable if making a quality YouTube account. All I'd need is a purely RPer audience.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      I'll have to try. I'm working on a way to show my face without giving away anything personal like locale.

      I couldn't link the YouTube channel to any of my current emails for example.

      Sunglasses? Hmm, maybe too douchey.

      [–]rebuildingMyself 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      There's always the Guy Fawkes mask! Jk

      I wouldn't make you all suffer through that cliché, I assure you.

      [–]S74RK 4 points5 points  (1 child)

      Do it man, really enjoy your posts.

      The only thing I worry about with TRP contributors going on YouTube is that they'll sanitize the messages and tone for a larger audience. Don't do this. Instead, inject some humour whenever possible :)

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Trust me, you'll never have to worry about me being politically correct.

      [–]daygamer69 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I'ld take a look but unless you give something new and present it in an engaging way then I probably won't look again.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      At least you're honest.

      [–]Chinny4daWinny 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I would

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      And I would make it a channel worth watching.

      I like short videos that are to the point.

      Good looking loser has good videos but they drag on for 40 mins.

      Quick bits of redpill is better

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I think mine might be a bit long winded, only because I typically cover the more macro-sociological perspective of RP. I'm aiming for roughly 15 minutes per video.

      Maybe FR videos could be shorter. I have a great FR story that happened recently and I might just save it for the video.

      [–]satanicpriest13 1 point2 points  (3 children)

      I love your writing ans would love to see how the videos would turn out. I am sure we will learn a lot.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      I'm really excited to get started. I'm researching v log methods now to figure out how I want to present these videos.

      So far I really like the analytical approach Yourmoviesucks takes on cinema.

      [–]satanicpriest13 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I'm sure you've put thought into the content/ message as well. A lot of the stuff on YouTube is bollocks, for people who don't want to read. Terrence Pop is the only unique one. I hope your stuff is more thought provoking and informative than a "sidebar audio book."

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Don't worry. I'm planning on making content thatll make full use of the video medium instead of just videos of me reading aloud from something I've written.

      [–]cruyff8 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      I'd burn them to blu-rays for anyone who can't stay on the internet that long and ship it to them at my cost.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      You keep the costs to a minimum just to cover shipping and you've got yourself a great service for TRP.

      [–]cruyff8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Need the content as well, matey.

      [–]Stonish 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      CWM, I want you in on this too. I have some questions regarding video style, tone, length, etc.

      Add me on Skype? Username's OmLaLa.

      [–]TRPger 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Because I find it easier to understand and rationalise with visuals.
      If you don't want to give away your identity a podcast would do as well.

      [–]FarOrAMess 1 point2 points  (4 children)

      Love your posts dude. Videos would be gold

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

      I think so too. Maybe even take cues from PUA and use body cams later on. Who knows? I'm playing with a lot of ideas.

      [–]FarOrAMess 0 points1 point  (2 children)

      That would be sweet. If there's something I really miss is a great resource for alpha game in action.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      I'm not sure if I'm going to take the FR route yet as the PUArtists seem to have that department locked down.

      It would have to have a strong message to address in order for me to post something like that, lest my channel be confused as just another MGTOW or PUA poster.

      [–]FarOrAMess 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      You could do RSD style videos where you basically explain theories and lessons learned, and do an approach or two demonstrating said theories in action.

      You could also give general advice about all aspects of life management.

      Do as you will, I see great potential in this for our main community of 120k people.

      [–]prodigy2throw 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      Thanks mate.

      [–]notevenatthestart 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      I'd probably be less likely to watch a Youtube video, honestly, than I would be to read a submitted text post. A text post I can read conveniently in otherwise wasted time in a way I can't with a video and I can go back and re-read a thought-provoking part of a text post much more easily. To similarly 'take notes' for a video could be more difficult-- though I suppose you could always consider posting transcripts of your videos, if they lend themselves to being seen that way.

      There's also the fact that a video, I'd say, has to be exceptionally good to beat a text post. The best, most professionally compiled, videos are more engaging than the best text posts, perhaps, but it's the other way round for the average, where the author/presenter can end up waffling or being unclear. And to make a video so good takes a lot of investment of time.

      That said, your writing is excellent-- I think your Such Is My Nature is a modern classic and should be required reading-- and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I believe both text and video medium have their strengths and weaknesses, but I definitely understand where you're coming from.

      I will not be approaching my videos the same way I would my posts for that very reason.

      And thank you. Such Nature is one of my personal favorite posts and I wish it had received more attention.

      [–]Redasshole 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      If they are as good as your posts, yes.

      PS : can you add me to your list of person to contact when your e-book on low reward living will go out please?

      Did you ever make any videos?

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

      Yeah, but they kept getting removed before I could promote on TRP. I'm working on a work-around on the side.

      [–]IamGale 0 points1 point  (4 children)

      Why were they getting removed?

      [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

        Vimeo is a good idea.

        On a side note, one could post them on 4chan, specifically /pol/ the politically incorrect board sounds right up TRP's ally. /R9k/ is pretty much the board for men who suck with women, one could unplug a lot of guys from there.

        [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        I'm heavily considering it.

        [–]recon_johnny 0 points1 point  (3 children)

        Do you have any beta/test (see what I did there) that we could review, before you actually producing a list of topics? Feedback, on a small subset, may allow you to tweak your approach, be more effective, etc.

        Usually done to issues that are not 100% vested - so you can modify your work into something more effective to higher topics. Just a thought. Let us see an example or two on a lower-level subject, if you have them.

        Basically a way to encourage you to do this as soon as you can.

        [–]Senior ContributorOmLaLa[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

        I like this idea. I'm thinking about getting a select few RPers together for a screening before going public.

        Creating one of the first RP centric channels and releasing it into a sea of feminist propaganda means it'll have to be done right.

        [–]recon_johnny 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        I'll volunteer for the small group. I'd also, however would look for some of the venerable members, and take their words as higher weighted.

        [–]let_terror_reign 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Volunteering for beta testing.

        Not public videos though please. I don't want them in my watched/liked videos list under my username.

        Checking in 4 months after the original post... Did you ever upload some RP knowledge. I'd love to listen to a podcast version while I'm sitting at my desk at work.

        I had, but it kept getting blocked. I think someone from TBP was watching my YouTube account. I'll get around it in time, don't you worry.

        Sounds good man. I'll be looking forward to it.

        I'm not sure yet. I'm weighing whether potentially winning over new members against being outed.

        Do I have to buy a shirt?

        Ha ha I got that reference. No, no. No purchases necessary.
