Title:Colin Mochrie vs. Jesus H. Christ: Messages About Masculinities and Fame in Online Video Conversations
Author(s):Kendall, Lori
Subject(s):video
masculinities
persistent conversation
animation
Abstract:With the availability of relatively easy-to-use tools for online video creation and distribution, people are increasingly producing videos not just for artistic expression, but also as a form of communication. This article examines two types of online video conversations, one within a specific online subculture, and one a series of responses to one particularly wellknown video. Videos lend themselves to the expression of ambiguity, contradictory meanings, taboo topics, and emotions. Within these two video conversations, topics include discussions of masculinity, identity, and fame.
