The Dumbest Scammers Of 2017

Been a good long while since I did anything regarding tech support scams. Rather than another typical video of a scam in action, I thought it would be fun to share this compilation by YouTuber Jim Browning, certainly one of the most thorough and mature scambaiters, where he shows what he feels were the dumbest …

RIP Angry Grandpa

I was rather shocked to read today about the death of a well known, and clearly well loved YouTube celebrity, Charles Green, better known as Angry Grandpa. This one kind of hit me hard – I followed the show passively, but had been aware of it and the family, for quite a while, checking out …

Looks Like It’s Over For Vidme

With YouTube being in the state it is currently (something I’m long overdue for addressing) many video creators online have been looking for an alternative, and for the past few months it looked like a certain little website known as Vidme would be a good alternative – it looked to work about as well as …

Oddity Archive Covers The Max Headroom Incident

One of the many more unique YouTube channels I follow is Oddity Archive – a channel devoted heavily to the more eccentric side of television, film, and home media of all types. Incidencally, the channels first subject was, of all things, the Max Headroom Incident. Now, Ben, the man behind Oddity Archive, kind of hates …

Tying Up Loose Ends – An Update


I’ve mentioned before on how I have quite a few article sets that I have yet to finish. I’ve been known to come back to articles at random times, in some cases months between entries. As it stands now, though, I’m thinking I should try before the year is out to get the remainder of …

A Good Example Of People Missing The Point Entirely

In my previous article, where I discussed how a YouTuber got a play button award with a racist phrase written on it, the subject of the video the content creator had made, and thus the subject of my article itself, was the fact of how and why he could get the item with the inscription …

YouTube Automation, Chinese Factories, And A Racist Play Button

Talk about something coming out of nowhere, today I present you with a little insight into just how completely screwed up YouTube is. However, as with many things, we’re going about this in a somewhat roundabout way. You know those play button awards that YouTube gives out to people who reach certain subscriber thresholds and, …

Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 150: Polybius

Since I’m planning to eventually review every single episode of the series (probably a never ending task, as I think about it) I’ve been avoiding covering AVGN episodes on release –  as nice as it would be to hit them while they are hot, I feel like I might wind up, down the line, running …

WatchMojo Responds To Top Hat Gaming Man’s Video

In the previous article, I shared a video from Top Hat Gaming Man regarding the issue WatchMojo stealing research from GuruLarry regarding video game consoles which failed to sell. Not just that, alone, but also the quite rude email they sent to Larry regarding this after they had taken the video down – this itself …
