I think Steve died a little when he had to say Anime Waifu Edition GPU.


All of you are complaining about Steve's dry delivery, but this video is amazing *because* of the dry delivery of all the waifu puns and entendres.

From the comments:

quote:

5:18 Logs readjust to get more comfy
20:28 James warms you up with his wood (ASMR) (James. Santa-variant)
1:19:47 Santa James shows the Lincoln Logs industry who's boss. (James. Santa Variant)
1:33:45 JAMES LITERALLY THROWS COLTON IN THE FIRE! (NOT CLICKBAIT) (GONE SEXUAL) (DON'T DEMONITIZE ME!) (James. Human variant. Unique appearance.)
1:45:47 James Claus piles more dead trees onto fire for sweet AdSense bucks. (James. Santa variant)
1:48:50 Unknown background hum begins (Planes? See bottom.)
2:06:10 Local pyromaniac sates his desires in surprisingly responsible manner. More at 11. (James. Reindeer variant)
2:20:01 Pupperino: "Such warm."
2:20:27 Doggo returns with a near out-of-frame, left-to-right rush before reappearing to scour for munchables.
2:20:45 MUNCHABLES LOCATED
2:22:52 Door creaks. SANDY CLAWS?!?! (Nightmare Before Christmas fans, you may clap now.)
2:23:09 MORE MUNCHABLES LOCATED
2:23:26 CRONCH CRONCH
2:23:47 Loggo does a smol spook. Doggo does a smol fright.
2:26:30 Return of the Chonk
2:27:15 Revenge of the CRONCH
2:34:13 Everything gets a little dimmer
2:35:43 Rob Schneider is: A Stokin' and a Pokin'. Rated PG-13. Starts Friday. (James. Santa variant)
2:44:30 Smoldering log leaps out of fireplace to safety, proving the server room isn't the biggest fire hazard, and the practical need for a #FIREPOLE. We can also see there's no working smoke detectors nearby. (Explanation at bottom)
2:47:47 Unknown background hum stops. (Planes? See bottom.)
2:54:55 James adds logs, unaware that they are fully capable of un-adding themselves. (James. Reindeer variant)
2:58:06 Uh-oh. Fire in place that not fireplace. Move fire back to place for fire. (James. Reindeer variant)
3:23:17 James adds more logs. Don't let this distract you from the fact that they need to HIRE MADISON. (James. Reindeer variant)
3:46:12 James moves some logs around. Fire is generally stoked about the situation. (James. Santa variant)
3:46:55 James decides his small Stoker isn't as good as the vampire-inspired author it was named for, and proceeds to place it atop the burning mound of wood. (James. Santa variant)
3:53:56 Bram's legacy falls to the lower part of the pit, and lower still at 3:58:15. An apt demise.
4:08:05 The man in the WAN hoodie returns to rearrange the falling tree corpses again, tossing his wood-based poker in immediately this time. (James. Santa variant)
4:18:35 James internally sings "Gimme fuel, gimme fire, gimme that which I desire" as he ponders whether the song was wrote about this very topic. He leaves to Google the lyrics. (James. Reindeer variant)
4:40:03 Dummy thicc boi returns to poke some wood, and add more of his own. (James. Santa variant)
5:02:16 Man inserts flammable object into fire. Hilarity ensues. (probably, IDK) (James. Santa variant)
5:02:49 His love of fire insatiable now, the NAW show host throws more former-saplings onto his festive inferno. (James. Santa variant)
5:08:49 ... and another one gone, and another one gone. Another one heats the house. (James. Reindeer variant)
5:15:12 Log: pops loudly and releases many glowing pieces of pure Christmas up into the chimney
5:31:46 Who's that? (James. Santa variant)
5:32:28 "Slick" Luke? (James. Santa variant)
5:39:30 LONG. LIVE. THE KING. Sad burning stick noises
5:43:49 (part II)
5:53:39 Riley? (James. Santa variant)
6:04:08 Linus "Epstein Didn't Kill Himself" Sebastian? (James. Reindeer variant)
6:25:37 "B-Roll" Brandon? (James. Santa variant)
6:36:49 Anthony? (James. Reindeer variant)
6:47:18 Loud pop leaves embers and ash outside fireplace! "Visible at the bottom of the frame, near the white present!" types onlooker.
6:59:45 Yvonne? (James. Santa variant)
7:00:28 Hey, I've seen this one before. (James. Santa variant)
7:07:29 See previous entry "Long Live The King"
7:21:39 Rick and Morty Season 4! Just kidding. It's (James. Santa variant)
7:32:07 Are you even reading down this far? I mean, yeah, it's really more James, but did you expect something else by this point? (James. Reindeer variant)
7:53:37 Anti-fire people probably shouldn't watch this part. (James. Santa variant)

Reply from LTT on an earlier comment on Floatplane: The first challenge was location: we couldn't find ANYONE (or any rental listing) that had a big, beautiful indoor wood-burning fireplace, so this is actually filmed outdoors. Visually you may not even notice, but the audio suffered as planes can be heard passing overhead. Fortunately it's only distracting if you crank the volume. You may also notice that James is wearing an old WAN hoody. That's because this video was shot OVER A YEAR AGO, in the fall of 2018. The file was so large (500GB) that we spent weeks trying and failing to render it. As late as Dec 22 we tried to upload smaller versions to YouTube but the upload failed, dooming us to wait 'til next year. The beaver pelt rug (provided by James' father in law, a hunter) is still marked from when the burning log fell on it.

We havenít really talked about Jay ITT but heís probably the most gifted at actual builds out of his peers. His channel isnít perfect (and sometime he really rubs me the wrong way) but when he whips out the tools itís always interesting. The Destiny themed ITX / external radiator mod he did for a friend was sick.

His Summer AMD budget build was really good. Like, even if I couldn't get the same prices at Microcenter (cuz it ain't in my country), it at least got me looking in the right direction. And yea, that linked video above pretty much assuaged a lot of my concerns about watercooling with a very visual demonstration of how much poo poo you have to screw up to actually bring down that kind of calamity down on your build.

This is kinda faint praise but Jay is really good at something almost every channel on youtube sucks at: doing sponsorship bits. His commercials are obviously separate from the editorial content, not shoved intrusively into the middle of his videos, for stuff he genuinely likes or uses and often actually funny. Sure, the man is paid to say he loves world of warships more than anyone reasonably could love world of warships, but he seems to have picked wargaming to sponsor him because he really loves boats and it shows.

His watercooling rundowns are very thorough and his builds and mods are definitely the best of the tech tube mafia, although for pure "watch man (plus adorable daughters) build ridiculous neon monstrosity for rich people" it's hard to beat the Pinoy cheer of Declassified Systems.

Yeah respect to the guy for his ethics w/r/t sponsors. IIRC his dad was a navy guy and they were pretty close.

Jay does seem like a cool guy, but his build gimmick is the single most boring thing possible in my mind. I could not care less about the aesthetics of a loving computer. I know a lot of people do care, though, so it was a smart niche to position himself in.

Speaking of Linus, I recently came across thunderf00t's video on the stupid kickstarter food scanner thing and to my surprise there's Linus repeating the PR talking points and then doubling down how they were totally not indorsing it lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdv_tWDqNEA#t=864s. It's not new but the first time I'm seeing either this or the original video.

Install "Clickbait Remover for YouTube", available on Firefox and Chrome. There's a setting to replace all the thumbnails with a still from X seconds into the video. Goes well with SponsorBlock which skips over the in-video (not seperately streamed) ads.

As much as his stuff isn't for me, gotta take my hat off to him for having the foresight to build it up in a way that he can remove himself and it still keeps humming along. Not many youtube stars that have channels that start off basically built around them solely that could do the same thing.

distro plate bullshit is the apex of "look at all the money I spent" form over function. it is frivolous haute couture for nerds who probably sneer at someone with a louis vuitton or gucci handbag.


like, LTT spending a bunch of money on a machining shop to watercool a red camera is dumb as hell, but at least it's a challenge. the guy with the ridiculous handlebar mustache bought a CNC mill to make a needlessly complicated and expensive water bottle.
