i am going to create a 3 hour long video essay about jed speare's sound works that devolves into me talking about high school
Does tim talk about wanting to fuck his sister or trying to burn down his school? I read that on /v/ so it must be true.

I've only watched about 90 seconds of this man total across several attempts because he disgusts me. Part of it is his shapeless pseudo-skull made out of putty and his retarded mouthbreathing lesbian "face". But beyond that it's the transparently false "confessional" and "indulgent" element. Talking about what art and media means to you is perfectly fitting and natural. It's the correct reaction to the tyranny of high school english brain. The hunt for answers. The paranoid suspicion that art is some kind of science you don't get.

But Tim is obviously not an honest man. Nobody can be honest. It's 2024. Fat 65 year old kike men in dresses work in the white house. Every company in arts, media, and entertainment has a gun to their head demanding MORE NIGGERS at all times and if you try to acknowledge the gun an army of "art lovers" will have you exiled from all public facing platforms, because this is necessary to protect us from becoming some kind of tyrannical society.

Tim KNOWS THIS. It's WHY HE MOVED TO JAPAN. Moving to Japan is the most radical vote one can make with their feet. He's an oldfag who got sick of America when this stuff was nowhere near as extreme. His spiritual kin are Opie & Anthony, Boyd Rice, Patton Oswalt, Steve Sailor and Nick Bougas.

Tim KNOWS THIS. He probably used to act in accordance with this knowledge, and still somewhat does. But he also knows what people want to hear. He knows that most people are cowards like him. He knows that everyone with a soul hates the state of the world and hates everyone who is okay with it. And to cope he starts his great coward's work. By a coward, for cowards. The whole point of his channel is giving an ensouled person's view of art and the world. Correctly understood and presented that our experience of art and media is always refracted through ourselves, there is no pure or correct way to do it. But HE'S LYING.

I can just tell he's sanding this down, polishing it up, inserting meaningless gamer-babble that flatters the sensibilities of Video Essay Americans. People who have watched him at length tell me I'm right, if you disagree I can't point to specifics (I physically can't watch these videos), but I feel certain I'm onto him.

A similar character I have watched at length (with company, making it bearable), is 'Hazel'. Hazel is the next generation of Tim. Another ensouled outcast who in a sense votes with their feet. Hazel just votes with taste. He's an American who rejected everything spewed out by the ugly ZOG firehouse that is American media in favour of Japanese culture. But he still feels the need to make himself palatable to American society. It's not enough now to just act like the world is a big goddamn magical mess and we all just need to live in the freakin moment and appreciate the little things. Hazel cut his penis off (spiritually, if not actually).

And he was right to. Hazel is not stupid. That's why we study him. He is very good at reading the room and knowing what people want. Like Tim, this is because he's an Amerikaner intellectual outlier. Like Tim. Maybe the kind of guy who would have ended up working his way up to NASA or something if he was born in another decade. But now the only things he can take seriously aren't material or civilisational or even American. He has foreign culture. There are niches in media culture which aren't purely sinecures for afro-semitic commissars, mostly on the frontiers, emerging and briefly being free before the system descends and claims.

On the internet you could be a guy who likes stuff just talking and sharing. COULD. That blast door has sealed. A few older white guys got in and now have the internet equivalent of tenure. They're established and so can continue being themselves. Doug Walker is not a white guy. He is Doug Walker. He's an institution. Untouchable. Inevitable. Eternal.

Hazel has a lot to say. He's a very intelligent person and art and media means a lot to him. But being a bright and earnest guy will not get you far in America anymore. Or even on the American internet. But Hazel has gone relatively far. You can see signs of irl media opportunities, being allowed to shoot stuff in irl professional studios, and online his videos are succeeding and being boosted. This might sound like it undermines what I'm saying, but of course I've already given the story away. Hazel is not succeeding as a bright and earnest white man who loves media. He's succeeding as a cool quirky big sister figure next door who wears baggy hoodies and has a cool collection of PSX games and anime on old VHS tapes.

A figure who of course, DOES NOT EXIST, EXCEPT IN THE MINDS OF NERDS. This is part of the phenomena. Hazel is an appealing idea of a girl to a certain kind of pathetic slave who works in a warehouse. A more verbose, higher brow Sphere Hunter. But there is so much more in this case.

Again, Hazel is actually an intelligent person. He is a TRAITOR because he is not a libtard in his bones. I have been shown other big video essays on similar subjects. Jacob Geller is what I would call a natural leftist. Because he is profoundly retarded. I don't believe he's talking down to his audience. I believe that he really is as stupid as he comes off. Jacob Geller is not a natural intellectual using his powers to make peace with his oppressors. He is the oppressor. He is a retard empowered by times which worship inanity, democracy, and the pigsty of human kindness.

But Hazel is different. Tim Rogers is a natural Opie & Anthony type. Hazel is that another generation down. He grew up different to everyone else. Into finer things. He knows /b/ culture very well, he was obviously there all along. He's a younger end 4chan Millennial. Now I haven't put in the work here, but other Real American Patriots have gang-stalked this character's past. A succession of increasingly soft, conciliatory, and apologetic re-inventions of character and personality before taking the final step necessary to make peace with 21st century America and be allowed into the club. Becoming trans.

He tried to be Tim Rogers. A quirky soft boy who doesn't like sports, can talk to girls about girl things, dresses cute and funny and is nice and gentle. Doesn't fly. You will not be given a media job, that's for Taneesha. The algorithm will not boost you. You are still full of micro-misgynys. Who are you as a fucking white male to say what anything means?

So you see where this goes. You can't just Tim Rogersmaxx and present as a faggot to get in the door anymore. Penis has to come off. But that's not the end of the story. Back to what Tim Rogers does that makes him so sinister. It's far more obvious with hazel but fundamentally the same thing.

Hazel had to cut off his penis to become an accepted media talking head. But that doesn't mean he is now free to otherwise be himself. A white male can't say what he thinks and be accepted. Even if he is, on the books at least, no longer a white male. Hazel's real job is to rewrite what white male's think. As is Tim Roger's. Both of them converge on a similar presentation style of highly sentimental, personal, confessional and conversational talks about media and meaning, which become talks about themselves and the past. The audience is still highly enthusiastic and on board because people are disgusting raped pigs who want to be lied to. But if they haven't broken you yet you'll be constantly jarred by the audacity of certain revisionist claims made by Hazel. He will flagrantly talk about what famous and culturally influential animes meant to him as a girl growing up in the 2000s.

When you watch Tim Rogers are you learning what the past was to him? Or what the new media class say the past was to those who could think and feel? There are no lies as obvious as those told by Hazel, but do you think Tim Rogers is honest with you? He lives in Japan but he insists that there is nothing disgusting to him about American leftism. Do you think he is an honest person?

Do you think that perhaps the new wave of media literate video essayists are in fact not an embrace of personal subjectivity and idiosyncratic, but instead the strongest rejection of the validity of personal experience in the history of online culture? Are you watching personal accounts of the past? Or are you watching revisionist historical narratives spun from on high, sweetened with sentimental narrativisation through personal proxies, who are either presented as relatable, mentorly, or idealised fantasies?

Transsexuals cope with their plight by narrativising their past life history in the light of new recieved context. An individual tranny video essayist is doing this for themselves. All of them taken together are doing this to the world.

tim rogers does not live in japan anymore. he lives in new york city. he actually wrote a controversial article for kotaku about why he stopped liking japan: https://kotaku.com/japan-its-not-funny-anymore-5484581

he comes across to me as a very insecure person -- in all of his videos, even before he made Action Button into a youtube channel -- he frequently reminds his audience that:
- he has made video games
- he worked for [X big company]
- he met and/or interviewed [X famous game dev]
- he is a musician and played in a lot of bands
- his methodology of reviewing is extremely rigorous
- he did a lot of work to make the video
- he has played a lot of related video games
- he first played [X video game] a really long time ago (before you)
- he is currently writing a bunch of novels

it wasn't until i started watching all of his videos that i heard him admit (i forget where) that he hates himself.

i don't find this relatable or admirable, but it is kind of endearing to me because of how transparent it is. hbomberguy and shaun are narcissists, but they've completely deluded themselves to the point where i cannot relate to them as people at all. i feel like tim rogers is still just some guy trying to make something out of his life, and in the absence of anything actually meaningful, grasps at straws and does the classic soylennial thing where you pretend little tiny insignificant and mundane things are actually the most meaningful things in the world, because if not that, then what? i watched As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty when i was 14 years old and thought it was the most profound thing in the world.

i'm not sure if he's lying, but tim rogers claims to have a photographic memory, and in some of his more recent videos, he recounts specific conversations from his childhood, quoting things people said to him 30 years ago. i think this is fascinating whether or not he's deluding himself, lying/embellishing, or being truthful.

i tried to watch the geller jew and he came across to me as painfully insincere, pretentious, and sappy. i'm not sure why Action Button didn't feel that way to me. maybe it's because tim rogers seems genuinely passionate about the games he reviews, or maybe it's because his videos are so sprawling and bloated that i don't think he's trying to affect the pretense of anything -- he just is that way.

tim rogers claims to have written over a dozen books and shown them to no one. i can relate to that. i don't know how i feel about the fact that he goes around telling people that all the time.

I just finished reading this. The gayest and most embarrassing thing I've seen all week. Maybe the most 2010 thing I have ever read. This piece belongs in a museum. I kept stopping to share excerpts with people. And in turn they were telling me more about Tim. I didn't know he spent two years making an awful iphone game that got a 9.5/10 from Destructoid (And Tim says that he hates social conventions that demand people be absurdly nice and deferential as a matter of course).

There's so much going on in this piece. The absurdly misplaced overconfidence in western gaming. The baseless condescension towards the Japanese. The one sided loathing of social convention and convention in general (any consistent element in japanese games being bad).

Everyone really did think the japanese were hopelessly retarded backward yellow monkey people in 2010. Imagine writing this now. Of course more people hate Japan, but with a bit more focus. And more people love them. Some openly, and some hypocritically. How we all feel about Japan is a warzone issue now. And this piece is hopelessly outdated for all sides. I would say it was outdated even when it was written, it was just too high on its own garbage supply. Like all products of the Obama Era.

he comes across to me as a very insecure person
Yes. An insecure person who copes with strategic displays of performative insecurity. Unless when talking about how much he hates himself he also regularly mentions contempt for his audience this is lies too. He knows he's smarter than the spic children watching 9 hour youtube videos.

-- in all of his videos, even before he made Action Button into a youtube channel -- he frequently reminds his audience that:
- he has made video games
- he worked for [X big company]
- he met and/or interviewed [X famous game dev]
- he is a musician and played in a lot of bands
- his methodology of reviewing is extremely rigorous
- he did a lot of work to make the video
- he has played a lot of related video games
- he first played [X video game] a really long time ago (before you)
- he is currently writing a bunch of novels
He knows what he's doing. He knows how this looks. He's human you know. It's insecurity. This is a human fault (not really), which draws attention away from his actual wrongs and flaws (complacent status-seeking within a political culture which is toxic to art and culture and humanity).
it wasn't until i started watching all of his videos that i heard him admit (i forget where) that he hates himself.
Not as much as he hates you.
i don't find this relatable or admirable, but it is kind of endearing to me because of how transparent it is.
He's not transparent at all. Everyone's buying that this is a more or less spontaneous and authentic expression just because of all the warts and all disgustingness which people assume must mean he's being frank.

hbomberguy and shaun are narcissists,
Explain what that means without using the word "narcissism".
but they've completely deluded themselves to the point where i cannot relate to them as people at all. i feel like tim rogers is still just some guy trying to make something out of his life, and in the absence of anything actually meaningful, grasps at straws and does the classic soylennial thing where you pretend little tiny insignificant and mundane things are actually the most meaningful things in the world, because if not that, then what? i watched As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty when i was 14 years old and thought it was the most profound thing in the world.
If it means something to you that's something. From there profundity is more a matter of who's having the experience. Brilliant people have fascinating life experiences and beautiful inner worlds even if they live in miserable uncultured shitholes and have lives of mostly suffering. That is not Tim Rogers. Tim Rogers thinks that Ponyo is the only good Japanese movie.

Tim Rogers is a cultural communist apparatchik impersonating a human being. He knows how better than most because he once had the potential to be one.

i'm not sure if he's lying, but tim rogers claims to have a photographic memory, and in some of his more recent videos, he recounts specific conversations from his childhood, quoting things people said to him 30 years ago. i think this is fascinating whether or not he's deluding himself, lying/embellishing, or being truthful.
I remember conversations from my childhood. I used to think that was normal. Weird eventually learning that my older brother remembered less of our childhood experiences that he was older during. I think a lot of decently intelligent people are just like this. Also there's just what's important to you. I'm sure Tim ruminates like the giant neurotic faggot that he is almost non stop. Look how many mundane encounters he has a chip on his shoulder over in this Japan piece. That's not superhuman rain man memory. That's being a petty faggot.


i tried to watch the geller jew and he came across to me as painfully insincere, pretentious, and sappy. i'm not sure why Action Button didn't feel that way to me.
Geller is for the unironic Marxist audience. A disgustingly low brow crowd who need to be convinced that they're high brow. But being stupid, they are very easily convinced. He's a retard who flatters other retards.

Tim Rogers and Hazel ("Hazel is the key to all of this" - me) are different. They are attempting to convince actually higher brow audiences (and below) that the experience of being a higher class of person is something fundamentally different to what it actually is. Tim Rogers exists to tell you that outsider Gen X guys were just proto-hipster soyjaks who hated smoking. Hazel exists to tell you that 4chan used to be a radical punk anarchist leftist space that was queer as heck and old internet culture was all about living in the moment hopepunk lo-fi-ing your penis off.

The defining experiences of actually being better than everyone else are negative. They are rage. Frustration. They are having actual hard answers to serious questions which do not degenerate into soft puddles of sentimental pseudo-romanticism. They are wanting to smash stupid faggot Jacob Geller's head into concrete. Wanting to smash stupid faggot traitor Tim Roger's pathetic excuse for a head into concrete. And so on.

maybe it's because tim rogers seems genuinely passionate about the games he reviews,
Tim Rogers is a better actor and liar targeting you specifically.
or maybe it's because his videos are so sprawling and bloated that i don't think he's trying to affect the pretense of anything -- he just is that way.
If he says so much over so long and it's so vague, who is anybody to say he's wrong about anything? It's all just like, an experience of the world man? Well yeah, I'm not going to call him wrong on any specific point. I'm calling him a liar because it all stems from obviously fraudulent foundations. It is a presented experience of the world. With deliberately held biases and skews. Now that can of course be interesting in its own way. Like reading someone who belongs to a religious faith you don't subscribe to. But really, it's reading a foreign propagandist. Now that might be fun. But you'd better be aware you're doing it.

The line these people live and die on is correct. There's only experience. What the thing means to someone. But that does not make all visions true or equal in any sense.
tim rogers claims to have written over a dozen books and shown them to no one. i can relate to that. i don't know how i feel about the fact that he goes around telling people that all the time.
Factoids like this are how I know he could have been keyed.

i thought his article on japan was funny because of how shamelessly autistic it is with his aversion to meat and alcohol. he couldn't even sip a beer with his coworkers.

is this leftism? i don't really think so. it's just autism and stubbornness. it actually comes across as a sort of mutated incel rage with his hatred of socialization/parties.
Explain what that means without using the word "narcissism".
i don't sense any inner tension, self-reflection, or self-doubt from hbomberguy and shaun. all of their content seems to revolve around moral grandstanding (or "virtue signaling"), more or less. when they give personal anecdotes, it is only to demonstrate how they "know better" now. they're both from somethingawful which is probably where they refined their brand of soylennial smugness.
Tim Rogers thinks that Ponyo is the only good Japanese movie.
does he? lol

most of his videos don't even feel very purposeful. they don't feel well-thought-out at all, despite him often claiming to have devised a rigid structure for them in advance of creating the video. they could all easily cut down 10x on length while making the same points. i don't enjoy them because i feel like he's teaching me something or that his taste is superior to mine, but because they are autobiographical autism fits. why do i enjoy that? i'm not sure. maybe it has something to do with why i like pinkerton more than the blue album.

COMPROMISED incel rage. Diverted and sublimated towards acceptable targets. How do you think this guy would feel in the company of NIGGERS?

Moving to the most uniquely nerdy, and civil country in the world and deciding that they really need to do better. What a fucking woman faggot. I hope a schizophrenic nigger pushes him in front of a train.

i don't sense any inner tension, self-reflection, or self-doubt from hbomberguy and shaun. all of their content seems to revolve around moral grandstanding (or "virtue signaling"), more or less. when they give personal anecdotes, it is only to demonstrate how they "know better" now. they're both from somethingawful which is probably where they refined their brand of soylennial smugness.
Again, Action Button is better at his job and aiming to corrupt a higher audience. His project is a moral one too.

most of his videos don't even feel very purposeful. they don't feel well-thought-out at all, despite him often claiming to have devised a rigid structure for them in advance of creating the video. they could all easily cut down 10x on length while making the same points. i don't enjoy them because i feel like he's teaching me something or that his taste is superior to mine, but because they are autobiographical autism fits. why do i enjoy that? i'm not sure. maybe it has something to do with why i like pinkerton more than the blue album.
You see. You're defused if it's all delivered in a sentimental narrativised form delivered by a weak-presenting figure.

i think i am too empathetic, too interested in what other people feel and think. this is a character flaw of mine.
Look at who is writing how much about what in this thread. I am the one with the extreme interest in the inner lives of others. And I disagree. This is not a flaw. But no, I will not watch the videos. Because I am an empath. It's like Will Graham looking at murder victims. It's too much. You can't send me back into that. I might lose myself.

COMPROMISED incel rage. Diverted and sublimated towards acceptable targets. How do you think this guy would feel in the company of NIGGERS?

Moving to the most uniquely nerdy, and civil country in the world and deciding that they really need to do better. What a fucking woman faggot. I hope a schizophrenic nigger pushes him in front of a train.

i watch all video essays on 2x speed or more. i do feel my skin crawl a little bit listening to tim rogers do his "cool narrator" voice at 1x speed.
regardless, he is a disarming person to me. the fact that he's over 40 years old adds to this: his life is basically already over, and he's just reflecting on it, which is completely understandable and natural. i would be happy to watch jeffiot's life fall apart (or his channel get terminated or something) because he is a scheming leftoid social climber, even though he (ostensibly) has the same oversharing heart-on-sleeve empath personality type as tim rogers. to me tim rogers is like a ghost from 2010, not even a real person. "truck heck" is not a real game.

something kind of interesting that tim rogers has said was that every game he's made has been a sterile concept game devoid of personal expression, characters, or emotion (e.g., "videoball"), and he kind of wishes he had instead created something like undertale. i don't really know what to make of that considering the contradiction between this idea and the fact that his video essays are ultra-self-indulgent autobiographies.

being an empath has only really caused me to err in social situations, btw, because other people are not usually willing to meet you halfway if you empathize with them. it only causes you to lose frame. it also makes me do stupid things like read youtube comments just to see people quoting lines from a video.

No. He's not reflecting. He's revising. If his life was over he'd be able to say he hates someone. Anybody. He wouldn't need to play games. He's still got skin in the game. He is not a disarming person. He is a person who is disarming you.

which is completely understandable and natural.
Would be.

I have no idea who this is.
even though he (ostensibly) has the same oversharing heart-on-sleeve empath personality type as tim rogers.
I don't know if this is a real type. I think that it's more like the cool A E S T H E T I C pilled girl next door who knows what Dino Crisis is. It's an escapist fantasy which has now been manifested to run rampant in the real world. These faggot morons kept throwing shit at the wall until they found an acceptable way to be a white male nerd. As you say (and I already said), he has to embrace that his life is over. The "I am an old stupid faggot who has seen some stuff it was all insignificant let me tell you what living in the freakin lo-fi moments meant to me" character role might as well be a eunuch. Functionally it's the same thing. Tim is allowed to talk about video games to a mass audience for the same reason Sphere Hunter is. He makes it clear from the outset that he has no penis.

Acting like you're hopelessly emotionally incontinent makes you seem weak and sympathetic and interesting. It's a smart tactical move. But you read the piece about Japan. This man is clearly capable of seething internally for years on end without saying a word. He can lie. He is good at lying.

to me tim rogers is like a ghost from 2010, not even a real person. "truck heck" is not a real game.
He is. But he knows how to update his presentation to keep up and keep views coming in. He still has the same absurdly bad backward taste and sensibilities of a 2010 hipster. That just goes to show how stupid and stagnant gamer culture is that he's not really out of date.

something kind of interesting that tim rogers has said was that every game he's made has been a sterile concept game devoid of personal expression, characters, or emotion (e.g., "videoball"), and he kind of wishes he had instead created something like undertale. i don't really know what to make of that considering the contradiction between this idea and the fact that his video essays are ultra-self-indulgent autobiographies.
The resolution to this contradiction is what I keep saying. He is an emotionally constipated commissar playing the role of a bleeding heart sentimentalist. But of course you don't have to be an exceptionally dull person to make a retarded mechanical toy as a result of your "passion" in video games. That's everyone in western video games. And art in general. Our entire culture is retarded and mistakes hysteria and frivolity for vitality and richness of character.

He has no self to indulge. He is American Psycho. He is seething with rage at all times. Never stops ruminating. Thinks he's better than everyone but is also exploding with envy and insecurity. He is an effective and driven materialist incapable of being moved no matter what is in front of him. This man should be killed for his own sake. That anybody could look at his phone game and conclude anything different goes to show we live in an age that is blind as well as sick.

The only kind of game he could make that would be authentic self expression would be that. But he's not brave enough to take a stand as the man that he actually is. Brett Easton Ellis came out as a faggot when that was still somewhat awkward and owned that he wants to stab his retarded yuppie friends in the face, in a manner so stylish people idolise his work decades later. That's the heart on the sleave. That is self indulgence.
