I'm gonna say this thread gets to stay open, at least until there's a better idea of what everyone's solo ventures are gonna shape up like. You can decide whether or not to make separate threads for those or just keep using this one.

personally I'm glad I can continue to support woolie and matt without having to interact with pat-related content at all

e: lol at it being "very telling" that people who aren't friends with pat are subtweeting about him. maybe the telling thing is that pat kind of sucks?

Or maybe those people are abusive and have personality disorders. We'll never know, but my experience with "cool freaks wikipedia club" tells me that once you start literally harassing people it doesn't matter how morally right you think you are, you're a loving rear end in a top hat.

Matt's a lovely businessman, but Pat had both Liam and Matt end up not liking him. Both guys are fine with Woolie, so I think there's a common thread there.

Yeah, two toxic people went "we need to shun this guy and never talk to him or explain our feelings and be insanely passive aggressive and encourage our fans to dogpile them", that's the common thread. The issue is probably just that Pat is stubborn and people like Matt and Liam get incredibly hostile and toxic when they don't remain in control and get 100 percent agreement from others all the time.

You see how easy it is to throw people under the bus, yeah?

Rodyle had mentioned they wanted to close the thread before, and I had already said I'd make a new hub for the Average Uneasy Acquaintances if they really wanted it. I don't mind staying here if you think that'd be best, however.

Agreed. People are going to do it anyway, so it might be smart to let it burn out here and not infect the new thread.

I'm way late to this but I've gotta say that as much as it sucks, it was kind of easy to foresee. Matt seemed like he hadn't been into it as much since Liam left, everyone started their own things with their own revenue streams, and as entertaining as Pat is at a distance I don't think he's as much fun to be around as people may think (I've known some folks like him before, it gets old REAL fast). This doesn't even begin to touch on the Paige stuff, but that's a whole other topic. Regardless of all the dumb poo poo, it's been fun.

So here's to the Zaibatsu! Here's to Omikron, unrelenting hype, and all the YOOOOOOOOs over the years.

Godspeed, you Lords of Scrub.

It was Plundersaurus Rex's dream to be the greatest pirate dragon ever.



The Zaibatsu are a staple of my life, and Iím sad to see them split up. But at the same time it makes sense. Watching the final video, it was like a hundred little puzzle pieces connecting in my head that it was a long time coming. I hope only the best for them all.

man the comments on the matt/liam quiet man lp are depressing and indicative of what portion of the fanbase is going to latch onto pat after the breakup (the weird 4chan nazi part). lots of "wow liam the snowflake made matt quit because of a difference of ~political opinions~!" and other nonsense

It's just part of Your Parents's gimmick that he assumes nice internet people are secretly monsters, and that, despite years of being in the spotlight, we're only seconds away from the secret pedophile ring being revealed. See also his posts on Travis Mcelroy.

I actually didn't even see his post yet. I was referring to various other stuff I've seen, like one guy on Twitter claiming that Liam has NO EMPATHY for SBFP fans and that he's MOCKING them. Or that he was lying all along about leaving for mental health reasons and really it was because of a falling out with Pat.

I hope it does him well, his stuff literally would not exist without the SBF crew and his content is always impeccably produced with great insight. I hope he takes a good break and comes back refreshed.

I really don't feel too much attachment to EPW. I watch his videos and I think they're great but I watch them more for the learning aspect rather than entertainment.
That being said the way he worded his final tangent got me really hard for some reason. Like I didn't need to see him crying on camera or anything like that but it was just really profoundly sad and tired.

I really hope the dude feels better, but given his tone I would not blame him if he wanted to quit now. I can only guess but I get the distinct impression that the SBF channel ending is what gave him the courage to speak out about wanting to end it himself. Poor guy.
