    as someone who has done what I thought was a funny prank on a friend at a party only to immediately realize I fucked up bad, I feel a deep kinship with johnny re: dave langs phone number

    Now Brad finally has time to visit the PA forums, maybe apply for that community manager job, settle down, have a Guinea Pig avatar.

    but yeah weed3 was maybe the best one

    also it really feels more and more like the guys leaving just...don't want to do this anymore, rather than something fucky behind the scenes. Jeff seems at times legit excited to work on changing things up, and they kind of have to. They've always had a real punk rock feel to what they do, but the internet has changed and now everyone has a youtube or twitch stream of them playing videogames

    That entire segment might be the hardest I've ever laughed at Jeff-related content.

    Also a thing I remembered

    I grew increasingly uncomfortable with how Johnny V's drunken stupor became a comedy lynchpin of e3 nights but goddamn if I don't think about 'Hello Toronto, you're on the air' all the time

    I've actively avoided that one Dave lang gdc video because it sounds incredibly unpleasant

    It's funny how all the X advocates lost their job at Giant Bomb and all the correct people still work there, I'm just saying

    There's a reason why I've gravitated towards creators who actively call out their fanbase, whether it's obnoxious or toxic behaviour. If your response to the latter isn't at least "We don't support this, get the fuck out of this community if you can't be better" then you're being too soft.

    The Dead Kennedy's are perpetually correct.

    Final Beastcast has an Austin and an Abby and a Dan present. Couldn't imagine anything else.

    I've been watching a lot of clips and catching up on stuff I missed (I still have one last UPF to catch up on before tomorrow.

    I saw the "What do pirates do" clip earlier, where it's Vinny, Alex, Brad, Jeff, Ben and Dan and it's just shocking that Jeff is the only one left now.

    It’s fucking hilarious for them to learn now that it’s all going away that there was an entire room just full of boxes in their old office that they could have been in instead of the supply closet they got.

    This clip where Jeff mentions Bakalar's mandate and the rest of the guys choosing not to stick around going forward does make me wonder what exactly the reason is for all three of them getting out at once.

    Maybe it's been covered more explicitly on the going away streams, but I don't think I can make myself watch them right now.

    The Beastcast is nostalgic remeniscing, I find it really carthargic.

    For better of worse, I listened to these voices a lot, and I respect all these people a lot.
