Mike / November 30th, 2011
This is a documentary made about me, filmed and edited by fellow college students in 2002. It shows a candid and personal side of me. I was very socially awkward and I think I was extremely flattered that somebody wanted to make a video about me.
November 30, 2011 at 12:23 am
This is awesome. Of all the people you could make a documentary about, James ranks up there with Mark Borchardt. Would be so cool to see a modern version of this some day. We get to see some of it in the Cinemassacre 200 & Dragon in My Dreams.
It’s kind of cool to see how back in 2002 you wanted to become a sort of cult phenomenon, and with the AVGN series you totally achieved that.
November 30, 2011 at 12:24 am
That was actually pretty beautiful. You are such an interesting person James, I’m sure you know yourself better than me, you this isn’t new information haha, but seriously. I really enjoyed this, and I know that your work will continue to inspire others, not just me. So thank you so much for existing!Also, to the guys who made the documentary, I loved the way you incorporated the piano at the end, and your close-ups had perfect timing. I loved it.
November 30, 2011 at 12:29 am
Beautiful documentary. I love how it’s pretty raw and straight to the heart.I don’t think there is a day where me and my friends don’t watch a video of yours. Big fan James, all the way from California.Did you ever finish The Confounded Crazy Critters Who Devoured Neurotic Live Stock and Couldn’t Stop Dying So They Had to Carry Their Own Tombstones Over Their Heads?
November 30, 2011 at 12:34 am
….GOD SHOW GUYS!!! to the ones that made this in 2002. great job. i really enjoyed it.
fantastic as always. im a huge fan, way to go man. cant wait for the avgn film.

Really love the vintage stuff 😀
You always seem to keep some in back up in order to play them later.
Crazy the comment are filling up as I speak.
I really hope that your movie will reflect that old style of movie making, I’m really not a fan of all those over the top special effect like in rob the robot. Been a fan since the start, seen all episode AT LESS 3 times. Keep up the good work.
November 30, 2011 at 12:41 am
Well this was just amazing, you are truly an inspiration Rolfe. I’ve enjoyed your videos since jrhigh or so and i am now a freshman in college. Like you were I am very socially awkward and want to be seen as how you describe. Instead of movies though I make music. I was having an awful day today, and wondering if it was really worth it being in college and everything and for some unknown reason, this made me feel a lot better about myself. You’re the best.
November 30, 2011 at 12:43 am
James, you really have followed your dream persistantly, and look where you made it to. You are already an internet sensation, and you continue to push forward towards your dream with giant strides. Like you said about how you are a nobody without your movies, I know exactly your frame of mind when you say that. I am a nobody with out my music, but no matter what happens, I strive towards being an amazing musician just how you strive towards being the next Steven Spielberg hahaha. Don’t ever think that your work is going to shit, because I along with thousands of other people love your videos. Keep making them please hahaha and never give up on your No-Budget dream. PS, this is coming from Reading, PA, I believe close to where you make your awesome movies.
November 30, 2011 at 12:54 am
Really cool James. I really like this vid. While you were in school you were still working your ass off to bring a creative and respectable vision to life, far better then some of these FUCKING shitty ass big budget movies, and you’ve managed to become a success not only as the AVGN or Board James but as a person and an artist. I only hope that my vision for the future can reach half as far as yours has.
November 30, 2011 at 1:06 am
nice and raw, real life
November 30, 2011 at 1:07 am
Nice and raw, real life.
November 30, 2011 at 1:13 am
Well obviously you were never a “nobody”. Look at how much you have achieved since then. Sad to know that you felt that way at the time. Well you rose above it. Keep up the great work.
November 30, 2011 at 1:35 am
I’m always moved when I watch this videos about your life, you’re such an interesting person, and in a way I feel that I have to keep on going when I feel like a nobody, thanks for all the inspiration you somehow manage to give me
November 30, 2011 at 1:41 am
very inspirational keep up the good work! love you man!
November 30, 2011 at 1:57 am
I’m posting this about 10 minutes after viewing. I just stopped crying. The last part really, really hit me hard. James, I just wanted to let you know that you’re the inspiration the fuels my interest in film-making and art as of right now. James, you’re definitely not ‘nobody’. You’re the fucking life of my party.
November 30, 2011 at 2:08 am
ither its the pre-prepaird speeches or just in the moment kinda thing
you seem alot more confident in the movies you make now
this you seem shy witch is ironic in a way “the one who uses the Camera hates being on it the most” good luck with the AVGN Movie!
November 30, 2011 at 2:10 am
I’m loving the Peter Gabriel!
November 30, 2011 at 2:11 am
Very inspirational James. I’m looking for that drive to produce my short films and no word of a lie, every time you release a new video, I get closer to my goal. You released two videos today so I’m twice as inspired 😉
November 30, 2011 at 2:27 am
Kinda felt like crying at the end….
November 30, 2011 at 2:48 am
good stuff, keep following your <3
November 30, 2011 at 3:01 am
You are an amazing person James. I wish I could’ve met you back then because you are an inspiring person to me. I’ve always wanted to make films and it’s when I see yours I feel like it is always possible even when my parents hate the idea of me doing so. For that I thank you.
November 30, 2011 at 3:22 am
November 30, 2011 at 3:23 am
Thank you, James. Unlike what some people might say, seeing you grow as a film-maker is incredibly important for a fan base. If I could listen to Dream Theater when they were first beginning to create music together and all their jam sessions, I’d pay to hear it all. I am glad you offer these to us for nothing in return. Thanks again, Sir, for all your efforts, and may your future endeavors ring truly to your dream in film-making.
November 30, 2011 at 3:24 am
This was moving, and inspiring… but in a different way than how the original filmmaker intended, probably, since we watch it now with a completely different apreciation, knowing that James was going to eventually obtain some of the cult-following he wished for back then, but he couldn’t imagine then how or when.
I’m not a film maker but I’m struggling too with my own creative goals, and this was truly inspiring.
The Confounded Crazy Critters Who Devoured Neurotic Live Stock and Couldn’t Stop Dying So They Had to Carry Their Own Tombstones Over Their Heads. That title is just too awesome not to repeat it.
November 30, 2011 at 3:54 am
James I’ll just say one thing: You ARE the life of the party.
November 30, 2011 at 4:03 am
loved this documentary, wished it was longer, like showing some work on set and actual filming.
November 30, 2011 at 4:32 am
guys dont be silly, this is no ‘documentary’ its an act 😉
Hey but besides that, its still very good & cool
November 30, 2011 at 5:11 am
@pascal99388 Did you ever meet James in real life? He is pretty shy. You wouldn’t expect it but he is a real nice guy.
November 30, 2011 at 9:47 am
@pascal99388 Go suck a dick you insensitive fuck.
November 30, 2011 at 4:44 am
Interesting movie About JAMES 😀 So skiny 😀 Damn 😀 Students !!.. Nice first cinemassacre 😀 LOGO 8 Bit RLZ…Have a question in 43 sec to 57 is Awsome SongWhat names this Song can you help me?? i cant find TY 😀

November 30, 2011 at 4:48 am
I feel the same about my work. I’m an unpopular artist, i think.
November 30, 2011 at 5:15 am
Very nice and personal touch, I’ve been following you since maybe.. 2006? A huge fan of all your work, I’ve probably seen everything on Cinemassacre and I check for updates every day. Regards, a swedish fan.
November 30, 2011 at 5:45 am
“My dream would be to maybe make a really big cult sensation, to have people going nuts in the theatre like the Rocky Horror Picture Show…”
You’re not far off James…
November 30, 2011 at 5:51 am
If james could get Mythbusters for the movies that would be sure to get into cinemas.
November 30, 2011 at 5:56 am
we love your movies, James. mission accomplished =) Godspeed, my friend.
November 30, 2011 at 6:12 am
To be honest, ten years ago when I was in high school and probably even in college I would have dismissed you but seeing your work over the past couple of years and having got an idea of your vision I am very proud to say I support your vision. Keep going after your dream because that what anyone of us wants. Good luck man, and hopefully your movie will catapult you into the big time.
– Don Allan
November 30, 2011 at 6:21 am
This is an awesome documentary of you James!
Anybody have a master list of all the Cinemassacre movies?
November 30, 2011 at 6:22 am
And by the way man, with your up and coming feature full length film you are the life of the party. You’ve provided years of entertainment for me and my friends and we are plenty appreciative. Keep it up and I would love to see your name mentioned in the same breathe as other great directors of our day.
November 30, 2011 at 6:28 am
Lol! he looks a bit like me.
November 30, 2011 at 7:22 am
November 30, 2011 at 7:40 am
From what I recall, Atom Egoyam did a full lenght movie in a home-movie style. The title is Familly Viewing.
November 30, 2011 at 7:54 am
On my facebook, you’re right next to Benn Jordan, Mike Portnoy and Phil Defranco on my list of inspiring people. Just wanted to let you know! ^^ I really hope that once you become famous someone will put together a serious biography of your life, you are an inspiration to anyone wanting to go into a creative art.
Keep on doin’ what you’re don’! Cheers from sweden.
November 30, 2011 at 7:56 am

@Bigdaddyclean You were maybe expecting James to be the captain of the football team?
November 30, 2011 at 3:16 pm
November 30, 2011 at 8:05 am
You have maintained that original thought/vision of short-movies. I understand where you were going with that idea; that’s the reason candy-bar companies started making bite-sized versions, that’s the reason we all love trailers, and part of the reason we love the nerd and all your other works here.
I remember that age, we all struggle for an identity, which in this documentaries end becomes your messge/revelation; that your movies defined you, but in the end our passions do not define us, at that age we fear they do and without them we, as you said, are nothing. My run on sentences are getting better!
November 30, 2011 at 8:15 am
It’s wonderful to see how much you’ve grown as a person and as a filmmaker since then. And seeing how much doing what you love has done for you is so inspiring.
Comparing the part where you talk about wanting to be the “life of the party” and that “without my movies, I’m nobody” with for instance your turtles-pizza-testing party, I’d say you HAVE become the life of the party. Such great stuff man!
December 28, 2011 at 12:59 am
@The Swedish Chef
Did that video get deleted from this site? I can’t find the pizza testing party anywere
November 30, 2011 at 8:21 am
Peter Gabriel playing in the opening credits? Badass.
November 30, 2011 at 8:28 am
@KamilJanicki yeah, from Peter Gabriel I: (Car). Great song, great album.
November 30, 2011 at 9:27 am
Every time I go to the city, I go by the U of A. Now I will think of James when I do! Keep up he great work, James!
November 30, 2011 at 9:31 am
an another piece of the puzzle falls into place. thanks for sharing, james.
November 30, 2011 at 9:33 am
This made me cry!! It’s so touching to know you’ve fulfilled your dreams, James. As your fan, I’m so proud you’ve made it this far!
November 30, 2011 at 9:40 am
James here you go, your dreams come true. Thanks for being there pal!
November 30, 2011 at 9:49 am
It is so great to have such a diverse plethora of work to share with your fans and followers. We have seen your drawings, comics, video’s and other crazy ideas from your earliest years straight to the here and now and an upcoming movie.
That kind of dialogue, combined with numerous introspective videos and discussions about your work on here has helped you to thrive on the web because it humanizes you, makes you approachable, despite being such a celebrity. I dare say of almost all famous folk, you would be one of the few most fans would be able to walk up and b.s. with as if you were an old friend from college.
It’s a good mini documentary, and I am glad you got your hands on it and posted it. It mentioned the Cinemassacre 101 film which I think is on the signed copy I got from you of Cinematic Catastrophes. I am surprised because the tone and narrative in the 101 film sounds a lot like your natural ability now, whereas in this you are still pretty stiff and as you said “socially awkward”. I actually attribute your demeanor in the film to exhaustion on a few levels. You just look very weary, yet there is a drive in your eyes that makes me think you were going to put in tons more hours at the labs working despite your lack of energy.
That drive has been a great fuel for so many movies created. I hope you never lose it.
I am curious if you will stick with your statement that if you make a full length movie you’ll still try to keep the ‘home movie’ aesthetic. Now that you are prepping to make a big movie, is that one of your goals? In a lot of ways, I can’t wait fo this movie to hit just so we can then see behind the scenes documentaries as you’re filming… because I know you’ll do it.
November 30, 2011 at 3:14 pm
@sterling.treadwell Thanks! I think you may be talking about Cinemassacre 200. (made in 2008) It’s an updated version of Cinemassacre 101 (made in 2002.) The old version is made up of interviews with my friends. I’m a little uncomfortable with showing that version as it may come off as self-praise.
Maybe, one day, I’ll re-post it in some form. It may even still be on YouTube or somewhere, because I did post it long before, even in the pre-YouTube days, as quicktime files, compressed til the point they almost looked like mosaics.
November 30, 2011 at 4:04 pm
@sterling.treadwell Oh yes, and I still plan to do some old school FX in the AVGN movie. In the episodes, I do quick 2D photoshop animations because that’s the easiest way I can do it in a short period of time. For the movie, we plan to do more effects “in front of the camera”.
November 30, 2011 at 5:56 pm
@JamesAVGN You know, I think in most cases it would be better to do practical effects rather then going and using the computer. The blood and gore effects you pulled off in your earlier work was simply brilliant. I tried my hand at a lot of home brew effects as a kid around the holidays and for class projects in high school, so I’ve seen what can really work and what totally stinks.
I recall the days when video was pretty low rezz and youtube didn’t exist yet. I am betting your work is out there buried on a college ftp site. It’d be great to show that 101 episode. With a brief forward I think you can avoid people getting the wrong idea. But really, most dvd’s that include various behind the scenes features just give you a 10-15 reel of everyone on the film talking about how much they LOVED the director and kissing his butt, so I think it’s sort of a gimme nowadays. Except maybe Kubrick’s “The Shining” hehehe…
Hell maybe you can have a friend make a mockumentary during this film production to show how much of a tyrant you are on the set. 🙂 That way the other behind the scenes feels balanced.
November 30, 2011 at 9:51 am
yeah so that ending was like uhhh actually kinda sad…I may not be a fan of every single thing he does but James you have talent and you’ve developed a Huge fan base. This was a pretty cool video
November 30, 2011 at 9:52 am
James love your work. Just started watching a year and a half ago, but love all your stuff. I am always stalking your site waiting for the next video.
November 30, 2011 at 9:58 am
you are not no one without your videos!!! youre a big person that deserved it to do movies that would come in the theatres
sorry if my english is bad i´m german^^
November 30, 2011 at 10:10 am
A few things stuck out to me.
1) James wants to be the edgar allen poe of short films. Interestingly enough, I feel he sort of has. Who else has single-handedly created a site where you release short films and tons of people gobble them up? Most of the sites cater to having a lot of contributors serving up a little bit of EVERYTHING, where jams’s site is just his stuff. I havnt run across anything like this yet.
2) James would rather have people watch 4 short films rather than 1 main feature. Again, I’d say he’s accomplished this. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve watched 4 or more of Jame’s shorts on this site.
3) “Im nothing with out my movies…but I made a hundred of them” I couldn’t decide if I should laugh or cry at the end of this movie. Laugh because look at where that attitude got him, but cry because it’s a REALLY sad statement for anyone to make. Glad James worked so hard and made everything work out for the best!
November 30, 2011 at 10:13 am
You’ve come a long way sir. Pretty awesome to see. And you kind of are the life of the party now!!! You are more than your movies. Cool to see everything here!
November 30, 2011 at 10:15 am
I’m so glad he made it.

November 30, 2011 at 10:34 am
James, without any of your accomplishments, or any of your movies, you are an incredible individual. The movies you make and the journey you’ve taken are an inspiration, but the creativity you’ve had since childhood, your ability to connect with people through your passions, and your unique way of viewing things are what make you such an extraordinary person. I believe you’ve had those traits all along, and that film-making is simply a meaningful outlet for them. No matter where your film career takes you, nothing will change those aspects of yourself that make you the awesome, significant person that you’ve always been. Thank you for sharing yourself and your passion with us all of these years!
November 30, 2011 at 3:09 pm
@KyleLutnick Thank you and everyone for the very nice comments.
November 30, 2011 at 10:54 am
You’re the Man, James. Greetings from Brazil!
November 30, 2011 at 10:58 am
Wow. That was great!
November 30, 2011 at 11:08 am
James, you are so awesome!
November 30, 2011 at 11:50 am
I am surprised at how much we get to learn about you James. I feel privileged. Now, on to questions! During this documentary, did you have plans for AVGN?(ANG) When did you start Cinemassacre? And the movie that you mentioned, is it made?
November 30, 2011 at 12:02 pm
That’s a pretty interesting one
November 30, 2011 at 12:17 pm
That was so fucking awesome & pretty fucking inspirational. Thank you James.
November 30, 2011 at 12:21 pm
Thank you for giving us the privilege to see this. It’s amazing what you’ve shown. You’ve accomplished a lot with just passion and perseverance towards a goal. I congratulate you. As for the ending, it was a bit sad and a tear jerker.
November 30, 2011 at 12:27 pm
I have been a fan for years and this is the first time I have decided to leave a comment. I love all the videos and have the 1st Angry Video Game Nerd season. This is amazing to look back and see what you wanted and I feel you have achieved your goal of creating a cult hit. Congrats and can’t wait to see more videos.
November 30, 2011 at 12:31 pm
James, you’ll be fucking big one day.
November 30, 2011 at 1:22 pm
I cant hold it anymore.
I am a huge fan of the AVGN, Bullshit, Board James.
However, I feel that this documentary, the dragon in my dreams along with some older films before we knew James receiving nothing but praise is now self masturbatory.
Not everything the guy makes is gold. In my opinion Stoney is the worst thing I ever saw. I am also aware of what stoney is spoofing and what it is suppose to be as a film but that does not create and excuse for being bad.
I am also aware this is James’ website and for fans, so the old adage of, “dont like it leave” can be a great comeback to my comment. I will rebut with this, I am a fan, have been since my friend said, “hey check out this guy on you tube bitching about Simmons quest, it’s right up your alley.” I still wait and check the site daily for the next episode, i believe the aforementioned works as my credentials for a fan.
So, wrapping up, fielding all this making a movie is hard and the flood of positive comments with out constructive criticism has reached its breaking point for me. We are all aware of how hard it is to make a movie. To the fans, you should be aware of what nothing but positive reinforcement does, simply put it is not fair to the creator, he will miss the opportunity to find weakness in the creation. If you’re a creator and ask 10k people if something is good and they all say yes, it’s great! would you be inclined to fix or tweak what you asked about? to save argument, I think you would be more inclined to move on toward finishing your creation, leaving the said part weak because of nothing but positive reinforcement.
There you have it, long winded but I had to get it off my chest, thank you for reading.
James good luck with everything, still a fan, not to worry, waiting for a new episode and the film. Have a safe shoot by the way.
November 30, 2011 at 1:46 pm
@johndoe777 That’s cool. Everybody likes different things. But if he didn’t put this stuff up, the alternative is nothing at all. He can’t just put up AVGN episodes every day. I don’t think Stoney, for example, is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen or anything, but the alternative is nothing at all. I thought it was interesting, that doesn’t mean I think it was “gold”. If you can find me a website that produces almost daily content that is 100% gold, let me know…
November 30, 2011 at 2:01 pm
@nowhere4321 I don’t think @johndoe777 is saying that James shouldn’t post these videos. He’s simply saying that he’s tired of the commenters always praising whatever James posts, even if some of it is terrible.
Personally, I think it’s great to see old projects from James. I think 90% of them are terrible, but that doesn’t matter to me. I can find it interesting even if they aren’t very good.
November 30, 2011 at 2:16 pm
@johndoe777 I agree with you in a lot of ways. It always bugs me to no ends how everyone just accepts everything as perfection. There is no such thing as perfect. A wise and awesome man once told me ” Practice makes better.” I find little videos like this interesting to watch, but I’m not about to tell James that this is the best thing of all time. Fans need to learn, that you can tell the guy that something isn’t good, without being a typical flamer. Constructive criticism is how things improve. In an odd way… guys like James here, and a certain other critic have inspired me. We have a lot in common in these ways, and it’s really cool to see inside things like this from him.. That said.. if I had a site, and put videos ect, and got nothing but “Awesome!” in response… I would be like….. Really? Then I would post crap to see how long it would take for some one to be honest lol.
November 30, 2011 at 3:38 pm
@johndoe777 You’re taking the site and everything James does too seriously. It’s not like everything he puts up has to be tested and “passed” by some great overseer. He’s just putting up filler in between AVGN and Board James and Bullshit…etc. Just because you don’t like it or agree with some of the video’s content…doesn’t mean everyone will feel the same. I mean sure, some of it is pointless, and no where near as interesting as what the fans want to see, but the man has the right to post things he thinks are funny or interesting, does he not? It’s his site afterall. Why only expect there to be purely gold material on here? You must be a control/organization freak or something. Like seriously dude, no offense, but you gotta chill. We’re all fans here, some of us….just trolls, but for the most part we all enjoy what James puts up, and we don’t really get all bent out of shape if he posts something random as hell now and then. It’s better than him not posting anything at ALL isn’t it?
November 30, 2011 at 4:09 pm
@johndoe777 I see where your coming from. but in this case he only posted this to show us something that he obviously cares about. this was made in 2002 and his other videos are even older, so i don’t think he is looking for constructive criticism. but does this “not all his stuff is awesome” not apply to everything any artist has made ever? does every one of your favorite, or anyone’s favorite for that matter, musician or comedian make perfect material every time? well now I’m beating a dead horse so that’s my stance.
November 30, 2011 at 1:42 pm

November 30, 2011 at 2:41 pm

November 30, 2011 at 2:53 pm
James is the Shit!
November 30, 2011 at 2:54 pm
Interesting. Cant say I am a fan of some of the stuff you do (Like Over analyzers) But the things that made you what you are today is what your good at. Looking forward to the future, and may you have many years of success!
November 30, 2011 at 3:04 pm
you have a world in your head that everyone deserve to see, peace!Blakynt
November 30, 2011 at 3:10 pm
Damn man, that was really good! Funny how you actually have gained a cult following! Way to pursue your dreams man!
November 30, 2011 at 3:22 pm
Aaah, the good ol’ Apple 4G tower. I knew it well.
November 30, 2011 at 3:36 pm
james, your awesome if you ask me follow your dreams
November 30, 2011 at 3:45 pm
im currently doing a national diploma in film production and always had all of these amazing ideas but then i learned that its always going to be subjective. you are always going to be making something based on something you have seen or heard. i want to know what speilberg used to dream about as that is where most people get their inspirations from 🙂 im not sure james ever dreamed about youtube fame tho lol
November 30, 2011 at 3:48 pm
It’s crazy how sad and empty I felt when the film cut to black and you said that you were a nobody without your movies. Honestly, I think we all feel like that about something, especially when we’re younger.
November 30, 2011 at 4:25 pm
@JakeLaFortune Yeah, I don’t why I said it. But it’s true I had that same feeling. When you’re young and trying to find an identity for yourself. Feeling insignificant. But the truth is, you always are that somebody. Back then, I was making movies. I was doing what I enjoy and there was even somebody making a video about me. I guess you don’t always realize what you have until you look back.
November 30, 2011 at 3:52 pm
@JamesAVGN James, you will go down as one of the greatest film makers that has ever lived. I have watched all of your stuff here on your page. I am amazed that you can have no budget and still produce good movies! You could teach Hollywood a great deal about how to make good movies from the heart and not just CGI 3D crapola. It would have been an honor to have been in the AVGN movie! I wish you all the best in all that you do.

James, for me you are the greatest film maker that has existed, you inspired me to make movies, and now in a few months i’m going to college to study the arts of film making, and i’m from Chile thats the prove that your work break barriers, thanks James

There doesn’t seem to be an option to not-fallow the conversation unless you first post and then click un-fallow. And If I’m viewing on my iPod or tablet, there’s no option at all.

Watching this makes me realize, how heartbreaking being an artist is, and that truely creative people are very lonely inside.

@JesseBrown And how many undiscovered artists dies without recognition. So sad.

This was pretty interesting. Does that “Best of the First Hundred” film exist still? Is it on the site and I missed it? Now I want to go and look. Also, it was weird how they put a slow moving piano rendition of the “The Star Spangled Banner” over the last part. No budget for music?

Seeing this makes me wonder how the AVGN came about…

P.S. the end is really sad! Its a good thing I am an avid follower of you, because if I would have seen this on youtube without knowing who you were, I thought you would have died at the end because it was left like that. Sad music, tear in your eyes….Congrats on all the success. You are a somebody! (Even then you were a somebody)!

Always a pleasure when we get to see a glimpse of the real James Rolfe.I always imagined you as a great guy and after watching this I believe it still.
Did you know that almost every time I go to bed I put on one or two AVGN episodes to fall asleep to? =P
Of course you didnt =PP But I do, almost every day.
Not saying its putting me to sleep, just that I really love your stuff and I can watch em over and over and over and over.
I thank you for doing your thing and sharing it and yourself with the world.
I hope you’ll keep doing your thing and keep on sharing your stuff for a long long time ;D
Thank you James, you’re great.

@FredrikPersson Don’t say no homo. It’s a stupid phrase.

@coltonpugh not a lonely island fan then

@FredrikPersson I agree with you, and I do the same thing. I put on some AVGN or Monster Madness videos to fall asleep. Im very glad that James posts this videos so we can know more about him. You rock James.

@FredrikPersson While I agree with your sentiments exactly (and I admit, I can do the same), I have to say this: you can admire a fellow male’s work/personality without being gay. Saying “I love your work” or “You’re a great guy.” is not a sign of homosexuality. Maybe it’s because I’m a female, but to me, saying “No homo.” just makes you look like a homophobe.
