RWBY is great because it starts with a dude named Oz and his partner Glynda Goodwitch running a school where they train Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, and Goldilocks to fight the Grimm.

Just the best.

The most endearing part of RWBY to me is that in world full of people dressed like anime fashion disasters there is one dude in the show who wears a pair of jeans and some Chucks.

What boggles my mind is that in the end he chose... Doug. Now provided, I don't watch any of Doug's poo poo. But when I think of Brad and people he collaborates with, its Lupa and Phelous.


And when push came to shove Brad chose... Doug.

Yeah same. I always thought Brad seemed like the coolest guy ever for some reason idk. He was just very charismatic or so I thought at the time. I never would have thought he would pulll a milkshake duck but here we are.

Yeah, Brad was always one of those "I can still be friends with people I disagree with!" types. Back in the day I thought "ew gross but fine whatever I guess". Now I see it was a huge red flag.

Yeah it's extremely depressing. At the height of my interest in TGWTG the two creators I most enjoyed were Spoony and Brad, so it's such a goddamn shame that the former burned out a depressed husk and the latter turned into the type of ghoul he used to openly mock.

Jamie Faith posted:

I, like Brad, am originally from bumfuck nowhere Illinois which is white, poor, religious, insular, and very conservative. Both my parents were the first college educated individuals in their respective families and recognized how toxic an environment they were in and bailed before myself or my sister could be poisoned by it. I say this because even when I was a dumbass HS student I remember Brad would have his rear end in a top hat friends on and I'd think "oh god I knew so many people like that" and I always kinda felt like Brad fell victim to a combo of midwestern politeness/conflict avoidance, and being surrounded by CHUD assholes. It sucks and is also really scary because I realize that could have been me had I been in ever so slightly less fortunate and privileged circumstances growing up.

Anything remotely sexual gets smacked with an R18+ rating because the review panel's staffed by uptight christian conservatives who hate that the R18 rating for games was forced into existence and they can't arbitrarily ban stuff anymore.

Yeah I think all three of the Arland games got rated 18+. I have a very confused post in the RPG thread asking "uhh, what the heck? I just played L+S and it was very family friendly, wth is going on in Arland?" It's literally just some racy jokes.

lol the cinema snob thinks symbolism isn't real. He literally thinks that books and movies do things "for no reason"

I have absolutely no idea why anyone would listen to anything he has to say

Or, more to the point, assholes circle the wagons when called out. At a certain point, people cross a line of shittiness where your only choice is to cut ties or join them in driving everyone else away.

You might not have been a complete rear end in a top hat before that choice, but if you pick the latter path you sure as poo poo become one.

As a general rule, I feel pretty comfortable saying that people who are very into exploitation and horror films are either really cool or EXTREMELY not cool, with very little ground in between. I call it the Elvira/Joe Bob dichotomy.

I started wondering about Brad when he started featuring the college student he was dating for a while in his videos. He was about 40 at the time.
