If you don't want your dead body seen publicly then maybe don't kill yourself in a public place. Especially one literally called the Suicide Forest because it's a place where people go to kill themselves publicly.

Unless the outrage is that the dude made money off of it in which case how is that different from literally any news or true crime show or documentary ever.

In fairness, I donít think itís the dead guy complaining.

He didnít monetize the video, but itís pretty gross and heís apologized.

No no no no no, Iím shutting this down right now. Have you read his apology?





Notice how often he says ďIĒ or ďme.Ē Notice how he low-key blames everyone else for misinterpreting him with his ďmonsoon of negativityĒ comment. Notice how he brags about his views and his work ethic. Notice how HE HASHTAGS THIS poo poo. ďWell, it seems Iíve grossly disrespected the dead with my latest wacky YouTube video, clearly I need to make sure to remember THE BRAND.Ē

gently caress his sorry. I get the impulse to defend yourself, to offer up some kind of explanation for what you were thinking, but this is grossly inappropriate.

His hacky quoting of Spider-Man sucks too, but thatís more of a personal qualm.

He's pretty tone deaf and self absorbed, to an insane degree. He ended up doxxing Post Malone when he saw that Malone ordered some of his merchandise, so he videotaped himself driving to the house listed on the receipt and delivering personally, in the process showing the entire world where Post Malone lives.

There was a way to handle the suicide forest situation, and it would've been at least to cut the video feed and just keep the audio if you wanted the reactions and then do some talking head stuff or narration about what they saw and how it affected them. Even though he's all contrite and apologizing he 100% knew it'd go mega viral or whatever the equivalent is nowadays.

My earlier post reads more like Iím defending him, so I retract it. From the word go heís sounded gross and I just want him to disappear.

Roseanne has a nightmare where Doogie Howser gives her a breast enlargement rather than a breast reduction. So at the very least, he's played Doogie as a villain.

Content creators have to make content somehow

I love how cold and impersonal they call their work. "Content creator" sounds more soulless than advertising executive. Though it doesn't sound as bad as influencer.

Dammit, my wife and I were really enjoying our December binge-watch of Justified (her first time, my second), but as of today, it is no longer available for free through Amazon Prime. I'm just relieved we made it through Season 3 last night (my favorite season with my favorite villain) and only just started Season 4, which isn't the worst place to stop watching.

I always pay attention to those lists of what gets added to and removed from Netflix and Amazon Prime each month, and I definitely didn't notice Justified being removed at the end of December. Oh well. I just bought my dad the complete series on DVD, so maybe he'll loan us the back half for now.

Are you outside of the US? Itís all on Prime for me at the moment.

I know it was definitely gone yesterday as it's been in my watchlist for awhile, but now it looks like it's back. It's probably some rights renewal thing where it lagged updating.

Skipping huge parts of OG Twin Peaks? Holy gently caress no, not at all.

There are several schools of thought about watching order and what can and can't be missed, but you need to see the entirety of Season 1, most of season 2, and absolutely the Fire Walk With Me movie. At bare minimum, everything David Lynch had hand in from S2 and some of the less bad episodes.

That said, if you're only interested in The Return for the imagery and gleeful abandonment of tv conventions then jump right in. You won't understand anything and have little investment in the core plot threads, but nobody understands poo poo about the return anyway. Still, twin peaks contains some of the best tv ever made (and some of the most incompetent) so you'd only be doing yourself a disservice.
