So maddox just destroyed Disney and the little mermaid.
How does this make you feel?
and before i realized what a moron he really is. every problem on his radio show starts out promising and becomes the whiniest, unresearched appeals to emotion or anecdotal evidence
pic related, it's my face when dick masterson consistently brings in actual data and makes reasonable arguments despite dicking around for the first like 10 episodes of the show and bringing in dried smegma
What are his strengths?
I like his articles and he makes good points, but he comes off needlessly aggressive and stupid in these videos. I guess that's the downside of distilling what could be a full web page into a short video.
This is spot on.
You'd think I'm exaggerating, but this is the reason the West is dying - Entitlement mentality with no hardship and sacrifice being taught to younger generations.
kind of weird that he would review a movie that's 27 years old now. He could have gone an extra step further and turned it into a social commentary on how Disney destroyed women by indoctrinating them with this crap, but as it stands its like he just saw The Little Mermaid for the first time last week and had to get this off his chest.
What's his deal anyway?
He said he wasn't "allowed on YouTube". I'm guessing it's a character, but he has this whole website people genuinely seem to believe in, and Dr Phil said he wasn't any kind of gimmick.
>as it stands its like he just saw The Little Mermaid for the first time last week and had to get this off his chest.
This might be true.
He made some pledge 10+ years ago to never watch Titanic because he thought the premise was stupid. A few years ago he said he's still sticking to it.
He's avoiding a based Cameron period drama/action film probably just because it was popular at the time and has a love story. Which is stupid because it's good and a ship getting wrecked is metal as fuck.
yeah i like it, too. I just mean he's a grade A goober a lot of the time. I started listening for Maddox and now just find myself annoyed by his "I'm infallible" schtick when he consistently has no compelling arguments to make. Dick doesn't even bring in real things half the time. He'll bring in poop-smelling fingers and then just somehow convince you that it's a big problem. Maddox brings in Super Aids and manages to make me root against his problem. Great show, though. Boisterous, Dick, and Shawn are amazing. Maddox is like the Snidely Whiplash of his own show now
He's an improv comic named Dax Hererra. Dick Masterson is a persona that he used while writing his books and website, before tricking the Dr. Phil show into letting him on it.
Not sure about the "can't appear on Youtube" thing, but that is why Maddox refers to him as Dax on the live show
Holy shit, that Russian adaptation looks great.
I listened to each of his podcasts up until the Libertarian one, and couldn't do it anymore.
There were times before that were Maddox's faggoty PC side came out, which I found odd since he never really came off that way in his writing. Dick countered by being a normal dude that wasn't afraid to be politically incorrect.
But yeah, if you listen to Maddox attempt to criticize libertarianism it's just so, SO fucking painful to get through. Not saying I'm a rabid libertarian, but Maddox literally thought that "small" government meant the amount of people within the governing body was a small number relative to the population that it presided over, and not how invasive that governing body was.
It was SO fucking stupid.
yeah that one was hard to get through. it's been a long while since there was a great episode, although Asterios's riff on Star wars product placement in 79 or 80 had me doubled over the wheel of my car laughing. Idk why. Maybe just his voice when he's exasperated and screaming at Maddox
Maddox's faggotry outweighs any enjoyment I could get out of that show anymore. And, I'm not even trying to meme here, but the callers were clearly reddit tier as fuck with their humour
>HURR THIS IS GEORGE WASHINGTON AND THIS IS HOW I TALK
>GET IT, BECAUSE I"M TALKING IN MY NORMAL VOICE AND NOT EVEN ATTEMPTING TO SOUND ACCURATE
>LOL UPBOAT NE1???
It was fucking lame
That's another thing. I didn't find that guy funny whatsoever. The earlier episode banter between dick and Maddox was so fucking good, but Maddox got worse and worse, and Asterios was cringy and tryhard with his humor, and I couldn't deal with his bits.
Video killed the .com star. Him and Seanbaby among others built up this rep as incredible, pussy slaying, no-fucks-given ubermensch in the age of text articles, but were revealed to be phonies when photos and video became more regular staples of the internet.
yeah he's the most polar part of the show for everyone i talk to. i find his problems a little cloying but i do enjoy the repartee when he's interjecting as one of the others tries to defend theirs. I think I just like the way he bullies Maddox
Nah dude, if you listen to the podcasts all the way through they play voicemails at the end and it was a running schtick amongst callers that only got more popular as the podcast continued. It was entry level bandwagon humor that really pissed me off
>mfw my voicemail was read on a podcast
i did the "this is how i talk" line, but it was much earlier on before every single person meme'd it to hell
What are some animations that got it right, /tv/?
>i did the "this is how i talk" line, but it was much earlier on before every single person meme'd it to hell
Yeah.. I think I remember it being funny early on, when a few callers had funny accents and such.. but then the trend became "speak in my normal voice" which really was painful to hear because you could tell that these fucking idiots thought that they were hilarious in consistently doing this.
I forget the episode but my favorite caller was regarding Maddox driving as a samurai, and a voicemail was left by some dude with a hilarious Japanese accent that I listened to a few times. But generally, the callers were shit.
I remember his shit show on YouTube that had destructive comments where he constantly got told and became butthurt about it, replying with tumblr shit like "YEAH WELL WHERE'S YOUR SHOW".
Kind of demystified him a little.
Well, he has a decent thought process at times, and I wouldn't say the guy is stupid. His fault is that he sometimes misunderstands basic things because he is SO literal and robotic. In that episode specifically however, he was simply stupid and uninformed.
I really fucking hate click bait titles like this.
"How X is secretly Y"
"How X ruined Y"
"Why X is actually Y"
Like fuck off, can't you just call it Little Mermaid Review? I get why people click bait, but when you're as autistically hurr morality ethics bullshit everyone is doing the wrong thing except me as Maddox, you would expect some level of professionalism
Not only do I like the Disney version more it's also my favorite film period.
It's perfect in every way, shap and form.
All of Disneys best animators of the time worked on it so the animation and characters are amazing
You have a Divin Sea Witch.
Some of the best music to ever come out of Disney.
A classic non douchebag prince unlike the modern day Tangled / Frozen ones of today.
No forced black characters (no Sabastion doesn't count because hes a mother fuckin Awesome crab.)
A beautiful half naked Disney princess thats willing to shut up forever and sells her voice just so she can get legs which she can spreed for her Prince. Now thats a mother fucking girl right there.
>Ariel has such a weak motivation
Don't be so harsh she was 16 and it was true love. Why was it true love ? Because "at 16 it's always true love." ~ Zelda Spellman
Besides I like that her character was slightly dopy. It made her wide eyed / childlike which made her more loveable. You feel the need to put your arm around a person like that and protect / lover her forever.
Nah it was for general audiences but autists took to it quickly. Grown men buying Luke Skywalker action figures and such. They are the ones that hated on the prequels and drove poor George to near suicide. Now they got exactly what they wanted with Jew Jew. Appeals to a time when their uselessness was justified (because they were children).
Because it actually describes the content of the video.
There are plenty of book titles that begin with "How" or "Why" and they tell you the purpose of the book. This does the same.
The problem with clickbait is when it becomes "5 Reasons Why Han Solo is the Best Star Wars Character" and then it's just shit stolen from elsewhere, no original thoughts or research or images.
Maddox does complain about clickbait shit a lot, including in the article associated with this video, but at least it's 60%+ original content and delivers on the title. It's not just a guy regurgitating or commenting on stuff he found online.
the facebook comment section of their site is an autistic sperglord neckbeard wasteland
Well it's fair, it screams of sexual insecurity.
I don't see many people with amazing sex lives running around calling people cucks as an insult. Cuckoldry is a proud, and old tradition.
I remember the first Maddox video I ever saw. It completely ruined his entire persona, and I felt a bit sorry for him. I get that he's trying to stay relevant in the Youtube age, but he should have honestly just hired an actor or got a cooler friend to play him.
What if you're someone who has slept with his fair share of women and see no problem with using the word cuck as an insult?
There are plenty of men out there who are of weak constitution that would be cucked and be a-ok with it.
Ever since I found and started listening to the podcast, Maddox just proves to me more and more he's an insufferable progressive. Never would have thought based on his website alone.
I remember when I was 12 and thought Maddox was a smart person too, OP
I remember when I was an ant, and thought that picture was an appropriate size.
"Cuck" doesn't even mean anything here anymore, like autistic or reddit. It's just the "new insult" everyone says until it gets old and another new insult takes its place.
Funny thing is most of these guys saying "cuck" are complete virgins.
I remember reading his shit when I was in middle school and finding it funny. I look at it now and it's really kind of pathetic and inane. It's baffling that he's now gotta be about 40 years old without having developed in literally any way whatsoever in the intervening decade and a half.
>criticising disney for dumbing down their mateiral for their audience while having to repeat himself in a four minute video because he doesn't think his audience have a fish's attention span
There were seven of them in the original story and the eighth became Maleficent in the Disney version.
Luckily they distilled it down to three, each with a unique personality, plus Maleficent. That was a good move.
Dick's real name is Dax Harrera. He pissed off a lot of women back in the day before they found out that he was just a character. Even Doctor Phil didn't figure it out until the end.
Seriously, I'm not Armenian and I didn't even grow up around them, but i can't understand how people on 4chan constantly confuse them with jews.
Every single person whose name ends in -ian is Armenian. Every single Armenian's name ends in -ian. Anita and Maddox's names end in -ian. See where I'm going here?
>Him and Seanbaby among others built up this rep as incredible, pussy slaying, no-fucks-given ubermensch in the age of text articles, but were revealed to be phonies when photos and video became more regular staples of the internet.
You're stupid if you ever believed that shit.
Literally all intelligent people are "progressive" as described by stormfags. The thing is you guys are subhumans who deserve to die slowly of the worst form of cancer imaginable, and nothing you say matters.
He carefully explained why it's garbage and you responded with "fucking" followed by 3 buzzwords followed by an actual meme. If any post has ever represented how badly /pol/ inbreds fail at even resembling people, this is it. There's no self-awareness; there may not even be sentience.
I don't see it as a serious term at all. It just started as a humorous generic insult. The fact that something as specific as "you let your girlfriend fuck other men" could become a generic insult is really funny.
If it's used seriously, it usually means "someone who engages in deals that don't benefit or harm them while asking for nothing return." Just like literal cuckoldry, if you think about it.
