I really enjoy the I Don't Know James Rofle video because the fact that it's the AVGN is almost secondary to the thesis of the video itself. I hold not less of an opinion of the Nerd or Rofle as I did before I saw the video. AVGN was just what caught Dan Olsen's eye, and I for one am fascinated by how he uses James Rofle as a vehicle for these incredible ideas about self actualization and filmmaking.
i would go so far as to say that for as much as Dan Olsen looks down at Rofle, he also humanizes him in a way that many of his long-time fans do not. Olsen's video seeks to understand Rofle as fully as possible, and through this lens he becomes haunted by the same thing chasing Rofle: his own (percieved) lost potential.
(full disclosure I have never been an AVGN but I am self obsessed and an artist so you'll understand why this whole thing has me by the throat)

no offense but you guys need to learn the difference between someone implying their experience is universal and a post simply just not being about you

the problem with being a teenager dirtbag and then a young adult dirtbag and into a grown adult dirtbag is watching your fellow lonely friends find groups that love and adore them. like on one hand, i'm so glad you found your people. on the other, i wish i had been a part of it instead of just someone who was around in the meantime.

as a global society we really do need to emphasize the difference between baking and cooking a lot more and how you dont need to be good at both to be good at either. like obviously if you're into these things you already know the difference, but maybe for kids or teens or young adults trying to cook and bake for the first time we should really try to tell them it's a lot easier to make a pie if you use pre-made crust or that you can absolutely cook an entire chicken with no effort in a slow cooker. do you understand what i'm getting at

billionaires could be solving climate change right now and instead they're just trying to escape. it's lame. they could become the literal heroes of mankind but they;re heads are too far up their own asses to give a shit

ok i know that they had all of dune 2 happen within the span of jessica's pregnancy for filmmaking reasons, but having paul become the messiah of the notoriously skeptical fremen within a year was a seriously bad choice. in book canon paul hangs out with them for a few years. it's more plausible that people would come to trust him after he had spent much time with them proving that he could live up to their expectations. his heelturn in the movie is so sudden and it's one of my most annoying nitpicks because of that

I also think that all the "um okay knives out & glass onion were good. Wrap it up now" posts are so funny. You're tripping if you think there's not going to be at least five Benoit Blanc films lol

look, guys, this may seem ironic coming from a person with Verbose Disease, but I'm about to tell you the secret to winning social media: shutting the fuck up. you have a controversial discourse opinion? shut the fuck up and no one will know. can't participate in a boycott for various reasons? shut the fuck up and no one will know. you think or do something Problematic that has no bearing on anyone but yourself? shut the fuck up and no one will know. you haven't been keeping up on a pressing social issue? shut the fuck up and no one will know. your mind is a wonderful place where you can have all the bad takes in the world and they're all perfectly insulated from everyone and everything unless you try to excise them on a grand scale. you can take the mental L all by yourself without using a public platform as a confession booth and face zero repercussions and it'll be just fine. open up a damn diary and explain yourself there.
