Trying to Chronicle "Highlights" of Phil's 10 Year Legacy

Discussion in 'Phil Burnell / DarkSydePhil' started by Lurkette, Jun 7, 2018.

Forum Guidelines
  • Be civil. Don't get angry over DSP. If you need to tell people you're better than someone, you're probably not.
  • Limit discussion of body parts and functions. DSP is gross. Discussing his gout in detail is unnecessary and disturbing.
  • Hide your powerlevel. Avoid revealing intimate, personal details about yourself in public boards. These threads are not your personal blog and we are not an asylum.
  • No trolling plans. We are not an autistic Illuminati. If you embarrass yourself or the forum trying to troll, we will ridicule you.
  • Write descriptive topic titles. "[14-Sep-2015] Livestreaming Sonic 2006" is better than "new update".

no one can help you

  1. I intended on making a secret life-esque overview of Phil's YouTube career, to mockingly celebrate how little he's actually accomplished in 10 years. I started out going through his old darksydephil (wow it autocorrects to sweatshop how serendipitous) channel to gather "highlights" but after maybe 45 minutes of scrolling and occasional note taking I realized I was barely two or three months into his FIRST YEAR of youtube. This approach was scrapped, for obvious reasons.

    I lost interest in the project but the recent shenanigans has invigorated my ironic love for the man known as dsp, and although I think I missed his anniversary I'd still like to post it in the month of June.

    I'm aware of most things post-Retsupurae picking up on him; his MGS2 playthrough sparking both retsu and tihydp, KWO, SoK (rise and fall), Tenon/various detractors making channels mostly centered around him, masturbation, Leanna, moving across the country, Howard/Rambo fallout (might be pre-retsu but I know of it in any case), parents coming to clean house, Minecraft controversy, blip controversy, twitch controversy, Kat/catfishing, chair sponsorship, etc.


    However I'm not as well versed in anything before that, and I'm sure I've missed or forgotten "significant" things. There's...thousands of hours of videos of this dude, I doubt HE even remembers it all.

    Hopefully the above list gives you a good idea of what events I'm looking for. E.g. moving across the country but not him opening another persons mail or trading in his bmw; things that would significantly impact his "business" (including big playthroughs or channel events), influence his decision towards said "business", or "big" life events in general (like seeing his parents for the first and last time at his Washington house and making them clean while staying at a hotel Jesus Christ I'm still not over that) and all preferably within the span of his YouTube career (so not graduating college, but if there's anything FGC related I'd include it probably.) This INCLUDES actual, good accomplishments, like placing 4th at EVO, getting a girlfriend, or hooking up with Machinima. I mean...those are relatively good anyway. But you get my point.

    Oh, and I only ask for people to refrain from shitposting here to make it easier on myself. Thnx xoxo

  2. "After maybe 45 minutes of scrolling and occasional note taking I realized I was barely two or three months into his FIRST YEAR of youtube. This approach was scrapped, for obvious reasons."

    I mean, if you're feeling really autistic, you could dedicate yourself to making the Phil version of "Chris Chan: A Comprehensive History." Up to part 11 now and it's only at either 2008 or 2009. Obviously, this idiot's following isn't as large as Chris', and the it wouldn't probably feel nearly as rewarding to make, but it's still an option, if you're truly exceptional.

    Anyway, I don't have any real advice to offer. Good luck on whatever you end up doing though, friend.

  4. i lost all my notes (computer crashed from so many tabs lol) and besides that i was unsure how low to put my standards for "noteworthy" after first video, first video game video, first playthrough, first breakout playthrough, etc. like, do i mention every video that gets around 100k views? do i bother with the fgc shit if he's mostly just posting matches with little to no context (i have no idea how important some of those early fgc shit is placement wise, whether they were just local ladder matches for shits and giggles or serious training or what)?

    with chris chan, most of his stuff is IRL events with equal importance to his life; sonic contest, PVCC, heartsweet quest, house fire, banning from various stores, etc. the sonichu comic is sorta just the gateway to that. with phil though...what does he have outside of high views, detractors, "bad at video games", former pro fighting game player, failure of project 7...? most of the interesting IRLish shit is AFTER Retsu/KWO/tihydp/etc. which is what i wanted to highlight with this project, but i guess i'm not sure how to handle it regarding his actual kahntent. which is what his whole life revolves around, but it's so...uninteresting to talk about.

    hmm...it might be better to approach this as more of an overall documentary and not so much of a highlights reel. idk, it's 6 am and i can't sleep, my brain is not thinking well.

    i'm already mentally ill with little to fill my time for at least the next couple weeks, and the desire to not become dsp has often pushed me to do shit my depression made it hard to do, so i feel some sort of tribute would be appropriate because i'm a sentimental shit

  5. yo my man you aren't alone in this
    i am very egotistical and pretty much a trainwreck and that thought definitely crossed my mind that hey ! if i were in phil's shoe i might end up just like him !
    i do have friends that i pushed out
    18 y.o girls that had crush on me
    but then i think about how money means nothing to me
    and how all that stuff that i did i did it because of my autism and not for money or a power fantasy
    so i woke up
    the reason i throw up all of this on your post is : you seem pretty self conscious so you can't be phil no matter how you wanted to :biggrin:
    have a nice day and may everything you touch become gold!

  6. aw thanks fam. you seem pretty alright too; anyone able to point out their own faults in even a semi-humorous fashion is cool in my book. my self-consciousness is partly self-deprecatory, partly my clinical depression/anxiety, partly my brain fizzing out from staying up all night. but whenever i get to my lowest point, at least i can say i haven't fucked up enough for people to make an entire sub-forum mocking me. not even a thread yet, so i'm doing good.

    anyway, hope your life goes well.

  9. Okay, I organized @SoapQueen1's info into FGC and YouTube...clumps, and added the date of the mgs2 retsupurae, the TIHYDP MGS2 upload date and the Sons of Kojima YouTube creation.

    Other shit I have to squish into the timeline somewhere:

    Moving to condo

    Firing from job

    Kojima World Order

    Hiring to Machinima

    Project 7 (Orig/Reboot)

    Hutch drama

    Pandalee

    Washington

    Retsutalk episodes (maybe?)

    Firing from Machinima

    Curse hiring

    Laveria Media

    Twitchcon

    Almighty Tevin (and brief mention of other detractors but he seems to be the single detractor who dsp talks about the most besides Fred fuchs)

    Leannas brothers wedding

    Parents visiting

    Chair sponsorships

    Patreon (proj 7, camera, marathons, twitch n chill, multiplayer, etc. Mention of failed/put off/canceled goals.)

    Holiday Events (halloween, birthday, Christmas, thanksgiving, new years)

    Vacation vlahgs

    E3

    Calling his fans lazy

    THE INCIDENT

    Escort saga

    Kiwi Farms (thread/sub-forum)

    Panda hospitalization

    Tax saga

    False copyright strikes

    Bachelors in Finance (figured I should include since theres still speculation he's lying about that)

    Anything else come to mind?

  10. I don't think he faked it. He had it on the wall in a video, where it clearly showed a Bachelor's of Science in Finance and called it "a Bachelor's of Science, which basically means business degree." I'd think if he was going to fake it he'd at least fake a business degree instead of a finance degree.

  11. Oh, I meant to quell the speculation, sorry. Someone got hold of the clearinghouse certificate info and posted it here, so he did graduate in finance. I wouldnt have put it past him to lie but I dont know about faking an entire diploma lol. He's not that motivated.

  12. I think I have a good outline for the video, and as soon as these 13 playlists stop downloading (rip my internet) I'm going to start editing.

    In true procrastinator fashion, I'm doing this a day before its due. I swear to god this'll be done in June tho.

  13. A pretty short summary timeline for what happened each year would be

    2008: Phil starts uploading videos to Youtube, mostly partial gameplay and fighting game stuff
    2009: Phil begins to upload full game playthroughs, starts to gain popularity
    2010: Phil gets laid off in late 2010, decides to do Youtube full time, ends up in a partnership with Machinima
    2011: Phil's moneymaking peak and popularity peak "the gravy train" as he calls it, finds a maid in late 2011
    2012: Project 7, Phil's money and popularity begin to drop quite significantly, the views and money talk begins.
    2013: Phil moves to direct capture and to Twitch, Phil gets Retsuprae'd, he doesn't take it well, and this spawns the first TIHYDP, he doesn't take it well either. The first usage of the term "detractors"
    2014: Phil moves to Washington with his maid in an overpriced house thats too big for him, meanwhile he doesn't sell his Cahndo, this would later prove to be a big mistake for him, popularity still declining, Phil moves from Twitch to Youtube after pulling a tantrum, this loses even more viewers
    2015: Phil starts a Patreon to help with the decline in money
    2016: Phil experiences a bunch of false copyright strikes that kill his search rankings, in desperation, he returns to Twitch which he shit talked the entire year, and becomes a sell out, transforming himself into a type of streamer he's shit on multiple times
    2017: Probably Phil's worst year personally, Leanna left him, Machinima kicked him out, he got honeydicked by a company and laughed at because of it, having to crawl back to Curse for less money. Phil spirals into depression, whining in prestreams for hours and descending into gin fuelled rants at night. His shitty year picks up at the end when he finds a new maid
    2018: It looks like 2018 will be the year of descending popularity, as his top paypigs leave and his view numbers dwindle, Phil struggles to find stuff to occupy his dying audience, often barely finishing games.

  14. Still working on this fam. Tbh I started a new job that has me working sometimes late at night and then before noon the next morning, which my shit body is not used to, I'm in a show that's going into tech week (where I'm one of like three people making sure the dozen or so younger cast members understand where they're suppose to be/say/do along with my own parts gg) and then I had some other IRL projects I promised IRL people Id do that finally had their kinks worked out to where I could push through to almost finish them. Id apologize but tbh he just keeps giving me more content lol. Everyday I hear something new, whether its him wacking at the corpses of his ex friends and family or the currently still alive and twitching roadkill of his fan base.

    I have all the older videos downloaded, and been fleshing out the outline while at work (I'm just standing there waiting for people to come in). I plan to move the videos onto my phone so I can listen to them while I'm doing other shit because fucking hell I will not inject myself with pure unadulterated DSPositivity, my laptop is by power tools and I can vividly imagine myself grabbing one and drilling into my skull.

    I realize I have a history of horrendous timetables and follow through, and I wouldn't normally go through all this explanation, but as I said for my YanDev dramatic readings...considering the subject matter (lolcows who are known for dropping things and minimum follow through), I feel the need to explain and say I'm aware of my issues and note I'm working on them. And with that I realize this entire paragraph is definitely possibly autistic. ¯\_(ツ)_/ ¯

    Feel free to post additions or discussions or just tell me how dumb a leisure activity this is (again, aware, smooches)

  16. So, a longsuffering sweetie pie I'm in contact with was buzzing about writing his own overview of Phil since leaving Connecticut, but last I remember he retired the project. Having first stepped away after the Machinima breakup video, by the end of 2017 he was permanently cowed by the blizzard of activity that was then surrounding The King of Prediabetes. Sad!

    I'll ask what became of his notes. In the meantime, I'll give you the advice to check his vlogs channel. Podcasts (ATK, HL) especially, where he gets into personal questions. Dozens of random, scene-setting little articles indicative of mindset. Did you know at one point Phil intended to sell that CT condo to his parents? I didn't either, until I watched an old stream from like 2014.

    The universally derided big move is now such a boondoggle, even Phil won't wholeheartedly defend it. He botched pretty much every part of the process he had any control over, and nobody has truly laid all his bumbles out at once, despite the info being available. Best of luck!

  17. If he's up to collab on this beyond his old notes...yknow...misery loves company. Either way I'd of course credit him in whatever fashion he desired (real/user/pseudo/"Michirus Heartsweet") But I don't blame him for dropping it, or deciding "lol fuck no" to my offer. Its an infuriating rabbit hole.
