I actually felt the same way. Really liked his old stuff, but started getting put off by him constantly complaining about it.used to enjoy his videos way back, but i stopped watching his shit after he a: complained about what he called the "white guy with an acoustic guitar" trope (despite the video being about Bruno Mars who isn't white) which struck me as unnecessarily bringing race into something that has nothing to do with it. and b: called a musician using just an acoustic guitar for their music "lazy." that struck me as so pretentious i completely stopped watching his content.
might be a bit of an overreaction but i tend to really enjoy acoustic guitar songs. plus i don't believe anyone who's put the time in to learn and get good at an instrument is lazy.
To be fair, that review was released way back in 2011, long before SJWs had a grasp on pop culture as firm as it is now.I remember he did a video for that Burno Mars song that’s “I would catch a grenade for you” and while watching it, I was just really weirded out that he kept ranting about how the song was toxic masculinity or something. I think that was when I really started noticing him inserting his own personal politics into his videos.
Honestly, that’s what’s been keeping me from making a thread for a while.Todd for me teeters just on the edge of lolcow and tolerable YouTube personality. He's done some stupid shit over the years from his tweets to being another dick possibly fucking Lindsay Ellis. But frankly he hasn't fallen into the same downward spiral Lindsay, Allison, or god forbid spoony and the troon jess ouatuk have.
