I rather liked Barclay's character. He felt more human than most of the human characters. Part of that could be because the character was a hypochondrac which I think gave more for the actor to play around with with his limited appearances. Unlike Spoony though, he was integral to the plot of any episode he was on, not a side character or an extra.

Given Spoony's problems, I think his parents would have taken him in for some gene therapy.
So you are saying Spoony is like one of those mutants like Jack or Bashir . A recluse stuck in a mental institution ? Because he’s too broken for the real world ?

Now that I've been on a Spoony binge these last few weeks I rediscovered this gem. Among other things, he talks about the Lordkat drama, how if you're a content creator on the internet you need a thicker skin and Jew Wario LOL.

Again, watching these its like a time capsule, I would almost feel nostalgic if I didn't knew how Spoony turned out. Maybe is just me but I have no sympathy for these Youtube nerds, you have the easiest job in the world that also, as a type of cosmic joke, pays really well - and they still fuck it up. The other thing I really dislike about Spoony is that there's nothing really stoping him from coming back and getting his life on track, even with how much his fanbase shrunk in 10 plus years, there's STILL a fanbase he can grift from and build up from there, in 6 months tops he could be raking thousands on Patreon again.

At the end of the day, we all know he's not coming back, Spoony is allergic to the slightest amount of work and disconfort. Look that long greasy hair and double chin and tell me he isn't.

An early clue that something was wrong was when Spoony came back from a hiatus with a haircut. This was right after the FF8 series wrapped. For a long time afterward he would moan about hating his haircut, how it was too short, and so on. He began streaming old PC games at around this time. People in chat would point out how greasy his hair looks. And he would gaslight them and claim his hair looked shiny because of conditioner.

My mom used to date a pianist who was too cheap to go to the barber, so he'd cut his own hair. Then you'd look at old photos of him as a teen, before he got fat and ugly, and he'd say with a straight face, "I look better now." People like this really exist.

There was a pretty obvious connection between his hair getting long and his mental state going down. I remember that 'some people were born with great hair' while wringing his fingers through the nasty grease.

Another thing, the Warthog sure has laid way way off the spoony mania lately. Even since she went homeless she started to go more towards these other depressed weirdos. I don't think even she can relate to Noah's really sad dive lately into comics and Star Trek. Who knows though, she's done similar before and came back strong.

Edit, she is still calling however..

You mean the 10 or so former Spoony fans here making fun of him, or the 10 or so wannable kiwifarmers from DHI?
Never underestimate the power parasocial relationships can have over lonely people who spend their lives on the internet, the last video on his channel is full of comments from people hoping their e-friend returns like some Japanese holdouts hiding on islands in the 50s.

Spoony himself is an argument against Star Trek, or at least Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future.

The Federation during TNG is a sort of eudaemoniac society; resources are plentiful so citizens have the freedom to largely do what they want, learn what they want, and better themselves. If you want to head to the stars, great, join Starfleet; if you prefer to be an engineer, scientist, artist, or whatever, go ahead, because you won't starve while you figure things and get educated. Picard wanted to be a captain, his brother wanted to be a winemaker, and both of these things are fine, get to it. The idea is, in an egalitarian soft-socialist society, people will become the best versions of themselves because they need not be held back by the bullshit soul-killing jobs most of us deal with right now.

And Spoony disproves it! Here's a guy with all his essential needs covered--he's been living rent free for over a year now, with a monthly patreon stipend from the paypigs--and all he does is mope around, pine for the girls and dremels of old, and neglect his dog. Way to go dipshit
You're making me think of that season one episode with the 90s businessman who hated the future because there wasn't any struggle to give his life meaning. That's probably what that sort of a future would be like-- people are more wracked with anxiety and miserable now than they were a matter of generations ago even though life's the easiest it's ever been. The future would be mostly Spoony types.

To be fair when you think about it that episode kind of shuts down the idea that a life without need or want would be ideal. I dont think Ive met many people who have literally everything who are legitimately happy. It reminds me of this one story from my grandpa who served in Korea with a super rich kid, my gramps asked him of all things why did he come to the war when he had no need to, and the guy always said "its because I have nothing else to live for, I have everything but feel like I've accomplished nothing." Its a scary thought and honestly it reflects Spoony and this generation at large pretty well. Whats that old saying? "Hard times breed strong men; strong men create good times; good times breed weak men; weak men create hard times"

The vast majority of wealthy successful people are happy, normal and lead perfectly ordinary well balanced family lives. Most Rich People aren't Hollywood. They're your kids friends father who "works for a bank" or is "an engineer" or "a doctor". Among my circle of friends growing up were the kids of two world famous surgeons, and a few top tier Wall Street Bankers. They were the most normal people. They worked for what they had and didn't tend to live life as celebrities. They mostly liked comfortable homes. The only one that I can legitimately say always seemed unhappy and unbalanced was the one kids dad who we later came to realize was an international arms dealer. Even the Mafia Dad's seemed happier than him. In hindsight I grew up in a very weird neighborhood.

Hey gotta say this about those Mafia Dad's. They don't shit where they live and they don't let anybody else shit where they live.
Yes, I live right next door to Bay Ridge, and the difference is night and day. Not to say I dislike my neighborhood. But when you step into an Italian neighborhood, the air changes. I imagine this is how it felt to become a Roman province. :story:

I've never seen a single episode of Star Trek in my life and the more I hear about it the better I feel about not even trying. It's like listening to retards mentally circlejerking over Asimov.
The original Star Trek series from the 60's was book sci fi mixed with a generous helping of pulp. It was speculative, philosophical fiction taking place in a wild west environment where men still solved problems with their fists. It wasn't until TNG in the 1980's when it started going super nerdy and getting filled with technobabble. Each ST series had its own foibles, but Voyager was infamous for having a stupid crew with a captain who acted like a psychopath much of the time. (How stupid was the Voyager crew? Well, they solved the problem of having a holographic doctor by training Kes to be his replacement. Kes, an alien from a race whose members only lived to the age of 9. Good thinking, there.)

That's basically the case with every show since. Archer prided himself on being terminally unable to listen to anyone. Michael's defining trait is overstepping her bounds and making decisions on behalf of her Captain.

It's almost a cop show now. We romanticize the cowboy: that contempt for authority and due process. But it's an infantile notion. There is a no way a starship could survive this way.

Enterprise and Archer make sense and become much more entertaining once you realize that Starfleet wasn’t sending it’s best and brightest. That first Enterprise was crewed with the same type people who’ve already signed up for a one way trip to Mars. Archer and crews most important trait to Starfleet was they are expendable. They are the test Chimps sent out to see how and where they die.

Similarly Voyager gets much better once you view it through the filter that Janeway went completely insane in the first episode and is now a psychopath dragging her tormented crew of the Damned through space like the Flying Dutchman.
