yea people forget because of the 'holy gently caress he did what in the suicide forest' but before that he was also running around throwing pokeballs at Japanese people shouting I think it was broken anime japanese? Dude's not a proper Trumpy type but he's a dumb white racist who genuinely doesn't comprehend that others have emotions and feelings that are valid so he's chud adjacent at least.

Jim Sterling is self aware enough that he stands out from a lot of the youtube game critics. His opinons aren't always the best, but he puts on a fun enough show that he's fun to watch even if you don't agree with him - he gets that sweet spot where he can put on arrogance as a joke, and it feels like an actual joke, rather than a shield from criticism. Remember when Spoony used to get criticised and instead of learning, he'd pull the 'it's not me, it's my character' thing, even though he'd blurred the line so much it didn't matter?

(We also need more Boglin watch).

It's interesting that the person who pretty much started the whole 'angry reviewer' thing, James Rolfe, is almost completely cut off from Internet Culture and outrage despite making his living online, and he's been pretty careful about what to show - I don't think he's even mentioned his political leanings in a video?

I think with this DIY internet video business, it's very important to decide how much of yourself you're going to share online, and to put clear boundaries on what is a character, what's real, what's private, and what you want to show.

Anti-Logan Paul videos are a cottage industry in and amongst themselves. H3H3 have done some interesting ones, and Quinton Reviews has some actually quite thoughtful analysis of Paul. Actually, Quinton Reviews is very good in general, and is well worth a look.

Logan is an idiot. Trouble with him is I just never think he's grnuine about regretting the poo poo he's done. Like, KSI's hosed up in the past and hosed up bad but genuinely regretted it and made amends, and so I rather like him as a result - I wouldn't really have anyone else in that level as the UK's top YouTuber. But Logan just always seems to still be hoping that people are just going to forget eventually still rather than actually genuinely make amends.

One interesting angle in the interview I posted is that KSI kinda admits that, in doing this whole thing, he is kinda saving Logan Paul's career. He'd be in a much worse position now if it wasn't for this fight..like, even if sub numbers hardly fall to nothing overnight, the gradual degredation is real...I look around and I'm seeing it a lot with guys who were massive on YouTube in like, 2012-15*. Even if someone like Tyler Oakley's never exactly done anything wrong...jeez, you don't want to look at his numbers now. It's grim. This fight's stopped that happening to Logan any time soon.

*Of course, even if others from that era are suffering...there's always one consistent. Sorry folks, Felix is still very much the top dog.

Oh I have no idea, I just wanted to draw attention to Count 'Gas the Jews?' Dankula and Chris 'Red Pill' Ray Gun specifically. They've had normal people on like Ray Narvaez Jr, Jerma985 and Jacksepticeye but I just wanted to bring attention to the two I mentioned before along with boogie and Notch. It's not that everyone in that list sucks, it's just that I couldn't get everyone in one picture.

There must have been some sort of collected consciousness thing going on, because I was watching Cr1tical's videos the other day, and going through the uploads, I was a little taken back some of the guests that had been on there.

I've liked CD for a long time. Of course he gets called "smug" a lot or criticized for having a youtube character - which has changed a bit throughout his tenure. One of his videos on a talk he had at the skeptics conference was basically an apology for some of his past mistakes in online behavior. But I think he's now more important than ever. I was caught up in some of the videos he debunked when I was younger because I didn't understand the lengths people would go to fool others with a youtube video.

It's a tricky thing for someone who does podcasts I guess. I mean, Rogan has various folks on all the time including McFrogsGay JarofpicklesMan himself and he seems to mostly come out ok (even if he is a somewhat unaccepting member of the almighty INTELLECTUAL DARK WEB - or International Dork Web as he calls them).

Pretty much since Podcast #1 the True Geordie podcast has constantly had various people in the comments be like "GET TOMMY ROBINSON ON" which they've always been like "umm lol nah" - not surprising seeing as Laurence McKenna is as left/Corbyn supporter as they come (as are WillNE and Stephen Tries, the other members of the XO group) and Geordie is not the most political but he tends to skewer pretty left whenever these things come up, which isn't often. But would it be worth having a podcast where old TOMMEH Yaxley-Lennon Esq. is taken to task?...hmmm. On balance probably not which is why they're not bothering. Unless he's on the board to be the 100th Guest or something but I imagine that'll probably be them getting pissed as farts with like, Calfreezy, Jackmaate and Wroetoshaw or something like that.

Really good Twitter thread about performatively condescending YouTube critics:

https://twitter.com/InnuendoStudios...2109920256?s=20

With these kind of creators, I think the audience has a bigger impact on criticism on the internet than the actual creators. The personality might be performative but the fans are completely sincere in their nitpicks and ridiculous anger.

Plinkett was garbage and Iím glad they ditched him, but he always seemed like a weird transition point in youtube criticism where they felt they needed a character but mostly provided a transparently direct argument punctuated by ďperformedĒ hyperbole. I canít argue that they kept him going because their fans loved him so much, though, or that the act got more elaborate and performative.

Itís pretty telling that out of the producers mentioned in the thread, only RLM have moved out from behind their dumb angry performance character, although I guess they still are pretty performative with ďhilariousĒ depression jokes and Rich Evans loving the millennium falcon and what have you. Out of all the garbage white boys, they have 100% come the farthest in outgrowing all that.

And it's probably going to be more of a cringe-fest than the last one! It really seems like none of them have watched TLJ since the first time, latching onto their exaggerated impressions and stuff they came up with in the review when make reference to it. All they can ever seem to say about it is "SO MUCH SUBVERSION."
