TGWTG The Spoony One / Spoony / Noah Antwiler - Washed-up Video game / movie critic. Patreon scammer. Pussy-whipped SJW. A more insufferable DSP. Twitter addict. Has pissed everything away.

(though looking back they where more bitter rantings more than anything else)
Spoony's content gets a lot less enjoyable once you realize you're not watching a hyperfocused analytical nerd playing a character of an overly cynical critic, what you're actually watching are the cresting high points of a manic depressive bipolar sociopath.

Okay I’m no fan of Sargon of Akkad, but I think it’s bullshit that he got banned from Patreon and Spoony is still allowed to collect money from the platform when he’s obviously a fraud.

Say what you will, at least Carl makes content.
Heh, then you should check Shmorky's Patreon. It even has "Farewell" post, but people still give him money and he is not banned.

What else is she going to do. She gets to live rent-free in a nice house and presumably spends most of her time at home ignoring Spoony, playing Skyrim and painting dolls.
She seems pretty weird, maybe she is low-key crazy.
Well from DHI thread on her I know she is not sane as in "Lives completely in a fantasy world innher head and lost connection with the real world" sort of not sane

I wonder what Scarlet is up to these days.

Does she look at Spoony’s twitter and go “bullet dodged!” or does part of her feel like she helped in part to make this Frankenstein monster of terrible.
Well if what i remember reading somewhere was right (i) don't know if it was) Scarlett was friend with Lupa so...

What I certainly remember, because it was in Metokur's video about Spoony, is that after Noah Antwitter was fired, Scarlett and Holly from their HR division had a suspicious exchange on Twitter, something like "someone's ends is someone's beggings! - Love you! - Love you too!".

You did your homework, señor. Allow me to add a few more pointers; @Scarlettopia is only visible for selected followers, her birthday was apparently yesterday, she's got a DeviantArt lurker account ( https://www.deviantart.com/scarlettopia ) and the particular Tweet exchange between Lupa and her could be her own brand of schadenfreude. Even if you are friends with a person who dissed your ex you needn't passive aggressively celebrate it in public - GOTIS to the max.

At this point, I'm just waiting for him to come down with a serious illness due to poor living/eating or sperg out in public and get into legal trouble. And since he has a home mortgage of debt, whatever other debts he's accrued, and zero emergency savings, either one will ruin him.

That's pretty much where he's headed at this point. It's pretty clear that his family isn't going to get involved in his trainwreck of a life, April can't pull him out of it, and he actively resists and mocks any doctor's attempts to help.

Most psych docs will tell you straight up that Cognitive behavioral therapy, which they were apparently trying on him, works amazingly... if the patient takes it seriously and actually wants to get better. If the patient has an ego where they think they know better than the docs or prefer stewing in their mental illnesses instead of trying to improve (Both describe Spoony accurately), then it just plain won't work..

As for others close to him, he really only has April and his brother Miles at this point. I'd say odds are 50/50 that April will either finally wake up and leave him... or get dragged down into whatever disaster he's headed for due to blind devotion.

And it looks like Miles is resigned to the fact that he can't fix Spoony and just tries to be there. It's a sad situation.

Miles is sadly the relative that keeps hoping for the best but he knows, he knows Spoony will do nothing to help. He knows he will keep diving himself deeper into perverse squalor. But he cant do anything but watch and comfort. Fuck thats depressing

I'm thankful for From Software for punishing this little scammer.
It's kinda cathartic knowing Noah sucks so bad at Bloodborne that he whines almost as hard as DSP.
If only there was a way to record your gameplay, monetize that rage and turn it into entertaining content...

Noah's just wrong, btw.
Bloodborne is pretty unambiguous about the player character traveling to Yharnam in search of a cure for an illness that's started to plague his/her own village.
Plus if he's too stupid to glean plot details in a series known for being vague, just forget about it and make up a motivation.
That's sorta why these games have a create-a-character in the first place.
I believe that's one thing I've noticed over the years that really makes or breaks me about reviewers in general. It's if they pay attention to details or not. And believe me, that is the small fine line that in my course as someone who wants good criterion so I don't fuck up instantly labeling everything in black and white bullshit or greatness on a pedestal like Spoony.

The problem with Spoony is that he's such an insufferable egotist, that he thinks he knows what his next review's game/movie/wrestling match/whatever the fuck he spectates is all about. Sure, you can't be enthusiastic about everything, but in this life, attitude is everything, and if his little prissy pansy ass is afraid of having expectations and being let down, tough shit, this world we live in wasn't called imperfect by sages and philosophers thousands of years ago for no fucking reason. "Oh, this wasn't how I thought it was going to be like, because it didn't play out in my mind. What a waste of time, I've seen this done before, but WAYYY better," blah blah fuckin' blah.

Because of this, Spoony builds up stereotypes and bullshit checklists from the start, and because he thinks that is how it will and always will play out, he'll go through everything exactly the same time before with those bullshit notions. He's already bent towards bias, because his psycho entitled ass thinks he's seen everything. He'll never explore or push boundaries, because he's such a cynical consumer that is already the fool played by a system he thinks is conspiring against him that exists in only but his head. The last time I've witnessed attitudes like this was from the local newspaper movie reviewing guy who is likely out at the bus station now sucking dicks for cheeseburgers, and that will likely be Spoony in the future. It's no wonder why "internet reviewing" and western styled reviewing is looked at as such a joke these days. Dumbasses like TGWTG and Noah here ruined it trying to bankroll and know it all off of it.

The last time Noah tried to stream a FromSoft game he got so assblasted that he didn't stream for 6 months straight. I don't think he ever outright admitted it, but if you watch his Dark Souls 2 chimpout it's pretty obvious.

He'd probably kill himself if he tried to stream Bloodborne. His fragile ego just can't handle that kind of humiliation.

I like objective reviews as much as anybody, but it's pretty obvious that was never what Spoony or TGWTG were trying to create. Acting like they sullied the art of western critique with their obviously biased and hyperbolic comedy rants is straight up autistic. You might as well complain that Saturday Night Live is slandering the president by deliberately misrepresenting him. It's comedy, it's not supposed to be fair and balanced.

This doesn't exactly excuse my sperging, but I will help extend this conversation: There's a dynamic and reason why AVGN works, and I thank Lordkat as one of his daily viewers when he streamed, even into when shit hit the fan with Spoony, and helped explain why The Spoony Experiment nosedived crashing into the ground.

Everyone and their mother loves AVGN and MST3K because it stands out as a comedy act with its overall presentation. While Joel is made to be a sympathetic working joe just trying to not die by his tyrannical upper management overlords with crazy movies in a dysfunctional futuristic society and being isolated in space, the AVGN works because he also is a sympathetic video game nerd whom we do not know the profile of, yet know the surface aspects of him enough and have our suspension of disbelief elevated with his ostentatious character to know that he is not just James Rolfe portrayed as a nerd. Ie, they are not real enough to know that this is really just some guy acting legitimately like a sperg, and that we can just let that roll on by as they are our guide into their lives and the show, which we watch and identify with.

However, everyone else who is the bargain bin version of these individuals, and I'm not talking about personality based critics like JonTron and let's players like Markiplier and PewDiePie (we'll get to that in a moment), sieve heavily with the holes in their production values and lack of thought and effort. MST3K can get away with it because they had a set to help portray a setting. AVGN is helped by how James's video game collection and the room which it is contained in also acts as very effective set piece for his character; ie a diehard video game nerd. Both characters also don't act like their real life counterparts and help establish an onstage persona which they act through.

Spoony and his former posse of That Guy With The Glasses however, they all come off as talking heads with their real life personas intact, and hence lose sight of being a legitimate act of theater and drama. They use their houses and convention hotel rooms as their sets. They barely separate fiction from reality by not creating a character to act through, and hence come off like a crazy ass bum off of a city street corner telling you how the world is going to end or some annoying ass nerd telling you over your shoulder what to watch because if you do, you "have shit taste", no matter if it's intentional or not. Spoony has the best ass end of this because he didn't just fill in the bad acting checklist, but used social media as his own person and asked if he could serial killer style rape a fellow coworker for laughs, which properly led to him having an megalomanical breakdown and being told to kill himself for his insufferable narcissism. Hell, I've even been there when he sperged about killer bees and interrupted a Dungeons and Dragons session by Jason and his friends back in the day like the cringey nerd motherfucker he still is today. I'm sure we all know this, but if that was done by anyone big in Hollywood and enough for society to give a shit about even before #metoo, the paparazzi would swarm all over that like flies on a rotting corpse. And as we now know nowadays, they are the laughing stock of unprofessional internet show stardom to not ever follow the foot of.

And back to personality critics; they also play real life acting and entertainment world hardball. Their personality and voice tone has to be charismatic and inviting to whatever their show entails. They have to have a right "look" about them. They also need a budget and not have a room that looks like their bedroom at their parent's house or anything dumpy and homely if it is not a part of their character. They also need to not just learn how to act and have good stage presence, but be professionals even in their ordinary lives, because no matter how much anyone fucking prances around saying "we're not like the mainstream!" with all of the hubris and egotistic fueled jaunting joy in the world, there's always going to be a crowd watching and waiting for a reaction to get dopamine off of. You don't got that? You better have not quit your dayjob.

And as Spoony is today, he's in his own Skid Row, LA, in another part of the world; another burnt out star of stardom, with another tragic tale of falling out from the skies. Only, I don't sympathize with him, because he was always like the egotistic drama whore who went out to LA just to only get famous and continue their popularity streak, and was with a group of other sperg tards who did the exact same thing. Oh sure, I had a good chuckle with Phantasmagoria and Sewer Shark from back in the day, but he's done enough shit to get me to not want to be reminded of his crazy ass and his pathetic faux acting entertainer excuse of a routine. And in all of this tragedy, in all of this poetic irony, I came to learn far more about bad media and entertainment through Spoony and TGWTG than any of their extended viewings of z grade movies and entertainment. tl;dr they sucked at comedic sniping critique and having a good act.
