Why do you guys worship these people? Mike is, by all measurable accounts, a failure. Is it because you "relate" to him during your friendship simulator time? This man will die alone and so will you unless you make an immediate lifestyle change
Mr.Plinkett was his magnum opus and he dosen't even play that character anymore probably because he thinks hes too cool for it anymore and wants people to care about his other crap.
Good question, Mike and J film weddings/graduations according to themselves. No clue about anyone else
Josh, the Wizard, works in a movie theatre and I know Jack is married with kids but thats it as far as his personal life goes.
Dunno, Rich keeps a tight lid on his life. Someone told me Mike paid for him to work as extra production hand for RLM when it was in its infancy because Mike and Rich are childhood best friends and prior to RLM Rich was unemployed.
>use Android Emulator to see the guys on Grindr near Jay's apartment
>they're all uggos
>wannabe film directors
>stuck filming weddings
>attempt to make serious movie
>so embarrassed you just make shitty "ironically bad" movies
I still love them though. BoTW is so goddamn comfy.
sounds like Mike won at life
the only people who say "you have to get married and have kids to be happy and successful" are women and they believe whatever Oprah tells them.
He used to work in construction but now it seems that he's just living off of RLM income.
Jack does freelance video work and had a mild youtube hit with this "Hey pass me a beer" video that reached like 1.5 million views.
Jay and Jesse make a cameo towards the end (this was before they were known for being on RLM).
They make over 11k a month just through Patreon alone.
I'd say they're doing okay for themselves, considering their "cash cow", the Plinkett reviews, are practically dead by this point. Luckily they propped themselves up with HitB and BotW before letting Plinkett go entirely. They aren't nearly as dumb as some other reviewers who have meltdowns because they don't take their medicine, buy 300 thousand dollar houses despite making a pittance on Patreon, and then never doing their fucking work because they're too busy bitching about wrestling to their twitter fans.
I'll never understand this board's obsession with these e-celebs.
I'm almost convinced it's just one guy who bumps his thread over and over again
You're just jealous you're not as handsome as me
Basically the prequels reviews are brilliant and eventually they and the rest of his oeuvre will make him a lot of money. It just hasn't broken yet outside of a few circles because it's too unconventional.
As soon as more mainstream Youtubers start copying some of his schtick (in a more conventionally acceptable way) he will get more recognition.
Its always bugged me that theres this social stigma against enjoying your own life by yourself.
>You 'must' get married.
>You 'must' have kids.
>You 'must' make X amount and waste it all useless shit you don't need.
Its like some people just can't fathom the thought of someone being happily single and comfy
I've never seen one of his reviews but his life doesn't seem as bad as you make it out to be. I know it's anecdotal evidence but the majority of marriages I've seen have both partners looking absolutely miserable 90% of the time. Kids too, they sound like a huge drain on time and resources. However, these two things are how people measure success in life. I'm only 21 but if I can lead a life like this man, with few responsibilities and major obligations while still having enough resources to pursue my hobbies then I'll be happy. Or maybe this is my sour grapes arguement.
>drain on time and resources
That's the point dude. The point is to have so much time and resources that you can spend it on stupid bullshit. If you value your time and resources so much that you can't waste it, that means you're a poorfag and a loser.
HEY KIDS THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULDN'T DRINK PAST THE AGE OF LIKE 25
But you're not just being called it, you literally are it. You failed at the most basic resource gathering a human male is supposed to do, and to be a winner in society you're supposed to do a LOT more than just the basics.
>my definition of a quality life is right for everyone and 100% true
No its fucking not. Faggot. Nobody is required to have kids. You can do whatever the fuck you want. Earth is slowly dying, so having kids could actually fuck it up even more you fucking retard.
oh, hi, guys. what's going on here?
My friend's wife finds it unfathomable that I'm fine being single. Like, no matter the reasoning, she can't process the idea. I guess my mom kind of, too. Everyone else tells me "keep on doing what you're doing". Friends, family, everybody.
I wish that I had a more fulfilling job, and I lived somewhere else, but beyond that, I'm content. I make decent money, and can more than afford to keep the bills paid, and keep myself entertained.
>tfw basically 37
>tfw essentially almost 50 as well
just put me in the ground already
>Nobody is required to have kids.
I didn't say that. I said that if you have so little resources that you can think of such a basic thing as a waste, you're a loser. And that's just how it is.
Also, if you're really a collectivist treehugger, feel free to give me all your money before you erase yourself from your horrible Gaia-damaging existence.
That's a valid point. At the most basic level, finding a mate and propagating my genes is the primary goal as a human male. But as it is that sounds like a lot of work and that's not even taking into consideration all the expected failures that come while looking to get married. In theory it sounds nice but I'm content with this kind of life even if it's considered below even the basics of what is expected. I have a roof over my head, a full stomach, a comfy bed to lie in and more entertainment than I could consume in ten lifetimes. I see no reason to complicate matters. As long as I'm satisfied then my status as a loser doesn't really matter. I might change my stance on the topic as I get older but who knows.
I earn 22K per week just by placing tiny classified ads from my one-bedroom apartment.
>I wonder why people are social and genetically conditioned to pressure others into the propagation of the species
>I don't understand why the human race won't just let itself die out already
Only actual losers equate ample resources with I MUST BE A GOOD GOY AND CONSUME AND CONSUME AND CONSUME.
A mindset of "I must not waste this paltry amount of resources that I have on something that every human should achieve, so I'll just jerk off and buy anime figurines instead" is inherent to losers, yes. A winner has enough resources to throw around so that he never has to think this, he is in such a position in life that every "waste" is actually an investment, he is constantly enriching his life, and the lives of others.
Ironically it's this brainless outlook that has seen the spread of humanity to such absurd levels the species can't technically sustain itself indefinitely.
Maybe if you stopped once in a while and actually thought about what every human "should" achieve you'd actually be as enlightened as you think you are.
So... an outlook where you must have enough resources to guarantee a good life for you and the people around you, is a brainless outlook? How?
And again, if you really believe in that, I can give you my paypal and good luck in the aethereal world of euphoric enlightenment.
Well, Maslow's pyramid is a pretty decent overview of the basics. When you reach the top of that and become a real human being, then you can start thinking about what you're supposed to do with the rest of your life.
Im an autist and it's clearly genetic to some degree. Most of my relatives on my dads side of the family are on the spectrum, Im glad I will never have kids and bring them into a world where they can't possibly be loved.
So, something that literally every mid to upper class person in the first world has? Something that even 2500 years ago certain great people deemed to be not the only possible way of life?
>>So, something that literally every mid to upper class person in the first world has
Yes, those are the very basics. If you're not part of that 10%, you're not really human, are you.
>certain great people deemed to be not the only possible way of life
Who? What are you on about?
>live in baller downtown Chicago
>have to go to Milwaukee for work a couple times a month
>nothing to do
>everybody is ugly or married
It's a depressing place. No wonder why Mike is so dead inside.
>They aren't nearly as dumb as some other reviewers who have meltdowns because they don't take their medicine, buy 300 thousand dollar houses despite making a pittance on Patreon, and then never doing their fucking work because they're too busy bitching about wrestling to their twitter fans
Don't forget his ball and chain, who surely takes half of his Patreon money.
>If you're not part of that 10%, you're not really human, are you.
The catch is that a good deal of the rest of the world also has them, but to smaller degrees. And surprise, they don't live miserable lives. It is to those who are actually suffering from things like famine and omnipresent threat of death that the pyramid applies, and incidentally that group is the one that those superhero winners you're talking about somehow never manage to help even though put together they have more than enough resources to do so many times over. Guess they're too busy with resources.
This is moving the goalposts, by the way. None of us talking here have anything to do with Maslow's pyramid because our lives already include all the elements (unless you believe that you literally need every single element like sexual intimacy).
>Who? What are you on about?
Oh, just some unimportant Eastern guy who lived 2500 years ago and is universally recognized as one of the most brilliant, (if not the most brilliant) mind to have appeared on Earth. He basically had this funny notion that the pyramid is not actually built one block at a time but all together.
>that those superhero winners you're talking about somehow never manage to help
Why would they help them? You're supposed to help the people around you, people from your tribe so to speak, not third world subhuman losers who are only living to propel the winners to even greater victories. :)
>Eastern guy who lived 2500 years ago
Oh, the one who was born a major winner and then got bored and lived as a loser a little bit, with the safeguard of always being able to get back to his cushy life, exactly the same as the chick in Common People, so then he invented the spiritual bullshit that does nothing but preserve the status quo of societal hierarchy? Total genius.
>So... an outlook where you must have enough resources to guarantee a good life for you and the people around you, is a brainless outlook? How?
Because you condone the kind of ambition that has seen the human population explode to unsustainable levels. Humanity literally can't carry on like this without serious problems and your Donald Trump style definition of "winner" shows a pretty shallow and primitive understanding of what humanity actually needs. The idea that to be a "winner" you need to pursue a stereotypical family life along with all the greed and excess luxury that goes with it has to be one of the most sinister cons ever to succeed. Unless you're at the very top you'll never be a winner, you'll be nothing more than a useful idiot working like a dog for a relative pittance keeping the real winners in mansions and billion dollar yachts, and when the bubble bursts for real those guys will hide in some bunker while society crumbles.
>job is literally to film weddings (literally)
Photographing/filming weddings is a well paying business where I live. My cousin got married recently and the photographer was selling photos to pretty much every single guest for ridiculous prices.
>>job is literally to film weddings (literally)
>people will always be getting married
>these people will always want a wedding photographer/filmer
>live in an area with little competition
>be exceptionally good at your trade; charge accordingly
Yea, this is a negative right OP you stupid neet faggot
Absolutely not, this is a natural evolution of all living creatures, after all, we're only animals.
And the idea isn't to pursue this life, moron. Reread my posts. The idea is that if you don't have the resources to do it and not even think about it, you're a loser. That is just a simple fact. You can choose whatever you do with those resources, you can shit on the money in front of a starving African with AIDS if you want, the point is that you have it and you can do it.
>useful idiot working like a dog
Why would anyone live like that? It's better to just die in a ditch.
I have read your posts, moron, and what you appear to be saying is muddled garbage. By your own definition even a neet is a winner, if it all comes down to having resources. Even a fat, lazy, unemployed waster lying to his doctor to get disability allowance can have a house, kids, the whole lot. Your simplistic philosophy just doesn't cut it.
>Why would they help them? You're supposed to help the people around you, people from your tribe so to speak, not third world subhuman losers who are only living to propel the winners to even greater victories. :)
>Oh, the one who was born a major winner and then got bored and lived as a loser a little bit, with the safeguard of always being able to get back to his cushy life, exactly the same as the chick in Common People, so then he invented the spiritual bullshit that does nothing but preserve the status quo of societal hierarchy? Total genius.
He could go back to his cushy life for 6 years only. And he didn't. That's 6 years compared to the 45 years that followed. And it's no surprise that someone like you doesn't know shit about this, but the organization he founded was significant because no societal hierarchy existed in it. He couldn't instigate a societal revolution (implying that ever works) so he simply created a space free of societal hierarchy open to all wanting to get out of society's bullshit. Very few people, for all their talk about shaking the structure of society or whatever, accomplished anything similar. At the same time he left a philosophy and practical methods to apply it that are still 100% relevant today and that make pretty much all other philosophies look babby-tier, and established one of the earliest if not the earliest known legal code. So yeah, I'd say these are the deeds of a genius.
This coming from a guy who is evidently a fervent believer in the capitalist religion.
That's not a winner, that's just not being a loser. If society gives you enough resources that you can just fuck a few women and finance a few kids, then yeah, you're not a loser, you're a functional human being (on the most basic level).
To actually be a winner, you have to have resources to first become a self-actualized individual, depending on your character and interests, which is way above the basic level, and then have the resources to rise above the rest.
>he simply created a space free of societal hierarchy open to all wanting to get out of society's bullshit.
But there has always been and always will be such a place in all societies. You can catch a glimpse of it under your local bridge.
What else is there?
>But there has always been and always will be such a place in all societies. You can catch a glimpse of it under your local bridge.
One of the noticeable differences is that the people you have in mind generally live in suffering, are homeless and poor not by choice but by force, aren't respected by the rest of the community and did not become homeless in order to try and reach the apex of humanity in mind and deeds.
But whatever, now that you've outed yourself either as a troll or as an ignoramus, there's no need to reply to you anymore.
>the people you have in mind generally live in suffering
Doesn't everyone? Except you know who. :)
>respected by the rest of the community
Oh, so you're a hierarchical collectivist after all then?
>Im older than Mike

>Aidsmoby please leave RLM, please leave the internet. Please leave this life, thanks.
I used to LOVE RLM when they did the Plinkett reviews. But I lost interest once they stopped doing those and started wasting their time with HITB and especially once they brought in that balding fat faggot who screams like a girls when he laughs. The final straw though was having that Daddy's Boy CUNT Max Landis on their show and sucking TFA's dick despite it being a shitty rehash of the original trilogy. FUCK RLM!!!FACT!!!
>>almost 50 (FIFTY) years old
He's in his 30s
>>dropped out of film school
No he didn't. He graduated. Jay dropped out.
>>job is literally to film weddings (literally)
They haven't filmed weddings in years. But even when they were doing it, they were running their own business and being their own bosses. How is that a bad thing?
>>reviews children's movies like star wars with snarky asshole smug reddit perspective
yes, and the entire reason you're trying to be a smug and act like you, an anonymous permavirgin on /tv/, are better than him is because he's popular as the result of his Star Wars reviews.
Congrats, OP! You're a faggot!
literally on suicide watch
I realized I like these guys because they seem to be losers, not some middle-upper class cunt wiht a vocal fry and beta mannerism like most youtube stars.
Mike seems like a regular Joe who likes beer and wants to spend time with his friends.
Jay is young and a bit still innocent/naive while Rich is the endgame for both of them i.e. jobless loser who's already given up.
So basically its like Jay-Mike-Rich from potential to loser.
Compared to this most youtube shows are fake and very artifical. Also you know they wouldnt let someone like Rich in front of a camera.
I think the part of the charm is that you can connect to them in a way and they seem sincere people who just like to fuck around in front of a camera.
In another reality in another studio system someone like Mike would be in Hollywood working as a director or screenwriter or something, but you know that they dont let in people like him anymore because he is essentially working class.
>for at least 6 people
>a third of it is tax
It's not a lot of money at all. Even if it would directly go to all of them they wouldn't get 1.5k a month each. And they have to pay for production costs too.
Mike, Jay, Rich, Aidsmody, Beardfat and Jessie
Maybe Jessie doesn't work there anymore but I'm assuming they're paying the Canadians somehow. Even if they get 50k a month it's not that much considering they have to pay for everything themselves.
Space Cop will probably make some money for Mike and Jay and maybe Rich, depends on how and if they share the profits.
idk guys I really like Rich Evans
He's gives pretty insightful and smart comments on popular movies (HiTB reviews on Amazing Spiderman 1 and 2 and TFA for example), used to work as a movie reviewer, knows his capeshit better than 99.99999% of youtube "geeks" and has a wonderful laugh that cures cancer.
Only Mike, Jay, and Rich are full time RLM employees. Jack does freelance work and gets Pre Rec money, but not RLM/Patreon money.
>I'm assuming they're paying the Canadians somehow
Paying them for what? They helped on Space Cop so maybe they get money for that, but they're not paying them monthly. Why would they be?
+ YouTube money
+ Twitch money
+ merch money
at their level of fans, all four of them generate more than enough money for the living expenses of at least 1 person
also they live in fucking Milwaukee.
I think Jack plays a "sane normie" role. A strong example that supports my theory is their 2-part video on "Star Wars Christmas Special". Mike and Jay are pretty cynical, so Jack serves as a relating point to more conventional RLM audience who still feel uneasy hearing 9/11 jokes etc.
just watch the video on the pre rec channel where they play the bomb defusing game, he is LITERALLY a childlike retard without serious cognitive deficiencies. but at the same time he most likely considers himself an opinionated intellectual (see: cgpgrey tshirt). he is the living embodiment of reddit
went to fucking Stanford
Dont know much about this guy, but considering he was a stockbroker he's probably full of shady shit
You can hire them to film your wedding:
Oh wait, none of you will ever have a gf or be married. Ever.
honestly Jay is more pathetic
>his new father figure Mike is also an alcoholic asshole who constantly berates him
>years after becoming fairly buff still no gf in sight
>full on fedora edgelord taste to compensate for being a pussy manlet
>constant ironic "lel guys I'm gay" jokes in the vain of his ironic "bad on purpose" movies, probably a way to cope with the fact that he's actually a homosexual but all his friends are bigots
>has to live in fucking Milwaukee because that's where Mike lives
If something is a need, then you obviously need it to be a (barely) functional human being. Everything above it is a want, and you can only have wants when you're self-actualized.
>every human should achieve
Fack off m8, the world is overpopulated. I don't wnt to spend my old age living in the fucking Sheep look Up and I doubt you would too if you understood the consequences of overpopultion
>le overpopulation reddit meme
literally every country that is not a nightmarish hellhole already has declining birthrates
that's the only reason why migrant fucking shits are allowed into the 1st world
Yeah, endless fields of nothing thanks to not enough resources. If anything more people should move to the cities. more efficient, and cities usually aren't as full of disaffected loners plotting to gun down the innocent as the suburbs are
India and China are hellholes precisely because of the fucking overpopulation and pollution
