There's gotta be a German word for that, right?


Y'up.

Had lunch with a friend yesterday who is friends with one of the bigger video game-related Youtubers. The guy makes 300k a year through Youtube.

The good part of the story is that apparently the guy hates it. He hates it because he doesn't like the people. Thinks the video game community is awful, full of whiny, juvenile bigots and stereotypical basement dwellers. Hates interacting with them, hates a big chunk of his audience.

But 300k a year.

So he bites his tongue and soldiers on even though he thinks video game players are horrible people, because he's not going to make that living another way.

It delighted me to hear that.

:thumbs:

I am sure he likes video games and not having to work FT, as well.

Is it Angry Joe?

According to my friend, he likes video games but isn't mad crazy about them. He's happy to be comfortable, no doubt, but the fandom won't "let" him do anything else. He gets shouted down if he tries.

Wouldn't be right for me to say who it is. i don't believe he's open about this.
