I do think Joseph Anderson belongs in the OP under Video-Games. Outside of some dumb attempts at humour with his gag-videos on Cuphead and Chrome's T-Rex Runner he steers clear of skits and seldom shows his face. And if he believes Dark Souls II is on the same level as Dark Souls I then who are we to judge?

his Cuphead video was about 9 and a half minutes too long and based on a joke that wasn't funny in the first place, because gamers are stupid.

I still think he's good and right like, 75-80% of the time.

Well, from the looks of the list of the most prolific posters on the last thread and the known producer who's highest on it...I perhaps ought to stop procrastinating on here too much and make more vids instead lol (I guess Lupa's on there too but lol, she ain't got poo poo on me on that list)

Couple of things, randomly:

-That JewWario thing there...that's icky. I really don't like Justin being invoked for anything like this (or really anything at all), it's way too far. There's only one person who can respond and confirm/deny anything like that, and he isn't here to do it. One of my great regrets as a producer is never getting to know him.

-Larry has his reasons for staying on, which he did explain to me and I respect utterly. In the end it comes down to not having the sort of relationship (or indeed ANY relationship really) with CA's higher ups, and kinda feeling that if he jumped on it'd feel like he was just jumping on a bandwagon and riding on coattails - it's not really his fight in the end as much as it is other people's. He's never been a particularly major part of the site as much as he's just been...y'know, there. You wouldn't even really think of him as a CA contributor at all, especially in the past couple of years since he started Fact Hunt and really got cooking again on YouTube.

(Obviously disclosure in that, y'know, he's a friend of mine and we do a whole bunch of vids together and all that but don't be mad at him or anyone else who chooses to stay. Stay angry at the management for creating an atmosphere in which, over the past couple of years, well over forty people have chosen to leave)

Yeah I feel like we should limit the CA drama to "eat popcorn as we watch the producers leave" and "share if anyone directly involved says/does something relevant." I'm enjoying the trash fire as much as anyone, but sharing hosed up speculation is about as valid as writing creepy fanfiction.

Looking at the OP I just realised a pretty serious omission from the earlier Internet threads. We totally missed Preston Jacobs, the famous (or rather infamous) reviewer of the works of GRR Martin. He's notorious in all of the Game of Thrones threads in TVIV and Book Barn. He's incredibly thorough and highly familiar with Martin's body of work, including his seventies science fiction shorts*. He also has a habit of sliding from a fairly plausible reading of a sub plot into weird UFO style conspiracy nonsense.

I think his latest episode is a good short primer of what you can expect from Preston.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMSUK8tBm9g

Despite his reputation he is a very chill reviewer/theorist. He admits most of his really out there ideas are out there and I've never seen rant or shout, at worst he got exasperated and a bit snippy on his reviews of the GOT tv show. Oh and he describes himself as a feminist and talks about how a patriarchal society is depicted in GOT and about the anti war themes and how feudalism and racism are awful etc.



* He even seems to know more about them then George Martin does. At a convention Preston asked a number of question about them, to which a confused George had to apologise about not being able to recall things he wrote decades ago very well. Its a perfectly understandable answer but amusingly it effectively demolished a good chunk of his fan theories.

Aren't back injuries in the top three things that will absolutely happen to every wrestler? The other two being neck and knee.

If this is just a long-con to get Ster Lust as his new intro music, he could just skip the bit that involves loving up his own health further. I'm sure folks wouldn't mind.

Given his past performances and the sort of wrestling done by similarly injured wrestlers. I'm guessing it's gonna be a lot of shouting and prancing about with very little in the way of bumps.

Kim Justice
Jan 29, 2007



Yeah, like if he doesn't have any training or anything he's probably not going to take any kind of bump at all - I'd be pretty shocked if he did. Which is fine - a thirtysomething games journo with a lousy back is probably not expected to be moving around like AJ Styles. Good on him for having fun with this.

Puppy Time

My impression from the bits I've seen is he's more a managerial type, so less actual wrestling and more cheating on the sidelines.

Which is as it should be for a character like Sterdust.
