CURRENT MOOD:

stormtheparade asked: The worst part about his reaction is that even his shitty response got an incredibly nice reply. It's upsetting to discover someone you sort of "idolise," (for lack of better terms?) turn out to be a real shithead. Especially on YouTube, with video being a lot more personal than simple text. I also feel bad that I had no clue you were on YouTube! Always appreciated the stuff you put out here on Tumblr.

I like my youtube followers discovering my tumblr and my tumblr followers discovering my youtube.

twitter? I don’t know

boogieknightrises asked: What do you think is the cause or root of all Youtubers being terrible?

It’s no longer just a video hosting service, but a complex market which attracts the attention-seeking and rewards the self-promoting. There are plenty of nice decent people making money on youtube, but the system does very little to prevent garbage personalities from seeking the treasure and becoming reinforced by uncritical fanbases. So, I guess, standard capitalism problems

oh, I forgot to answer your question

Yes All Youtubers Are Terrible

phdsteel asked: What's your take on the whole JonTron stuff? All Youtubers Are Terrible?

How in the year of our lord 2014 can you say [insert slur here] and not fully understand that you’re gonna get called on it and the reasons why? What kind of person has failed to notice this kind of shitshow playing out over and over again????

Every time I hear some pissbaby crying about how someone made a slur they don’t like, It’s literally just them going “WEH, IT’S ONLY COOL WHEN I’M THE ONE USING SLURS!!!!”

Stop using fat-shaming slurs towards Jontron over this and then I’ll try and consider taking you snowflakes seriously.

Also, Max, please stop filling my dash with SJW bullshit, kthx.

Confused, where did I fat-shame or whatever? You’re being weird

It’s kind of sad you’re self-important enough to believe I was directing what I said 100% at you, but since you’re confused…

Well you reblogged my and only my text, and said “every time” and “literally” so it seemed like you were pretty unambiguously accusing me of hypocrisy. I’m sure some people are being shitty in their takedowns of JonTron, but I don’t understand why* that prevents you from acknowledging that he was also very clearly shitty.

*Well, I understand if you’re just going for some petulant derailment tactic

it’s weird that the three biggest fandoms on tumblr are for Super Nintendo, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, and Matlock

Anonymous asked: Were you really home-schooled or is that some misinformation you leave out there so you can laugh at credulous dorks?

Both

rct2guy asked: Is there a way to support you via one-time donations, like PayPal or something? I'd love to support your great work but am wary of monthly payments.

Yeah, there’s a paypal button on neilcic.com/mouthsilence

iampinklemonade asked: I'd love to be able to support you/your music, but could you please explain how Patreon works? I've never heard of it before, and am having trouble understanding it. Does it automatically take x amount out of one's account/Paypal every time you release something new, or is it something the patron would have to approve first when there is new content? Or is it a one-time amount? Sorry for all the questions!

Basically you pledge a certain amount to send a creator every time they post _____ (in my case, a new song or video) and I don’t think Patreon has to approve it, though I’m sure there are ways to report if creators abuse it. You can also set a cap on how much you spend per month, if you’re worried about a prolific artist draining your funds.
