    I’ve been a night owl my entire life. Having to get up early has been against my grain since I was a small child.

    I did k-12 and plenty of college, all early, and I worked tons of 9 to 5:30 morning shifts, but it never felt right.

    I was born to be a creature of the night.

      You know what’s bullshit?

      Getting fan donations to make a movie, and then charging those donators to watch the movie!

      • An Heroic Hippo

        Not really, he never said that all donators will receive free access once the movie is complete. If you’re going to get upset over that, you should’ve just donated $15 less (or however much it costs).

        not bullshit but … james should have made the movie just like his episode but a few combined in one or a really long one. the movie was a history documentary with james rolfe and avgn just in the frame “for kicks.” the film was terrible and unacceptable as an avgn branded product. completely unacceptable.

        He never said the donators would have to pay to watch the movie. Wasn’t upfront about that part. A lot of people assumed the movie would be posted to the website like all of the other videos supported by advertisements like what has always been done thus the reason for the donations.

      • December 6, 2014 at 4:21 pm

        Are you still on that? Jeez. Why don’t you…

        (puts on sunglasses)

        …give it a rest?

        Rest, sleep, get it? Yeah. I used a tired meme on your tired argument. And I’ll do it again.

        i know, it reminds me of when these fuckers asked me to donate money for cancer research, i was all like, i dont have cancer, come up with a cure yourself, and when i do get cancer you better help me, donations are a piece of cowabunga shit, youre so smart mrs. colt

        What is stopping James from putting his movie up on this website like all of this other videos so the donators get to watch it without having to give James anymore money?

        Right cause there isn’t anything stopping him from doing that. James wants to double dip on his fans by having them fund his movie for him, and then have them pay to watch a movie they already paid to get made.

      • Eyan Cross

        Making a movie takes a crap ton of money. That’s why there were fan donations. I mean you gotta pay the producer, the director, the cast, all the extras, camera guys, editors, etc. You also got to pay to screen the movie in theaters. I also doubt the whole budget of the movie was made entirely of fan donations. I’m sure James also chipped in some money. Plus you also gotta keep in mind he has a family he needs to support as well. Also why is it that other people can do this but when James does it he gets flak for it. Now that’s bullshit.

      • December 7, 2014 at 5:32 pm

        Besides, how long ago did this happen? You obviously survived the incident. Don’t make me start quoting song lyrics from Frozen. I have a 4 year old daughter and I can quote that movie because of her!

      • Satnav

        December 8, 2014 at 12:14 am

        You know what he likely spent most of those donations on? Making the movie. So god forbid after all that production he have a little profit to feed his family and little daughter. I mean sheesh, some people are really that upset about paying five whole dollars for it? If he didn’t actually promise free showings, he’s not obligated to do them!

      • colt

        December 8, 2014 at 1:17 am

        Are you trying to say the only way James could make money on his movie was if he didn’t have to pay anyone to get it made? i.e. he got a free movie to sell without having to pay anyone back?

        Well then the movie shouldn’t have gotten made.

      • colt

        December 8, 2014 at 1:20 am

        The fact is it is “bullshit” to charge donators to see a movie they paid to get made. I mean the donators don’t even get to share in with the profits, so letting them see it at no charge is more than fair.

        If someone asks people to give them free money to pay for their pet project, then it is more than fair for people to criticize or raise concerns of what that person does with that free money. If you don’t like that, then finance your stuff yourself or go take a loan out like what everyone else does.

        A donation doesn’t entitle you to anything… Donation does not imply you will get something back in return. Colt, you are not an investor… Your a kid.

      • December 8, 2014 at 10:36 am

        “The past is in the past, Let it Go”

        Seriously, not only do you sound like an entitled white guy in a Jackie Chan movie, you also sound like a bitter female who still hates someone from high school at the 25th reunion. This all happened so long ago and you’re literally the last one left with a stick in his butt. The whole world has moved on, new generations have started, new politicians are holding office, etc. Get with the times, or continue to cry in the corner while the rest of the party has fun without you.

      • FinallyGAF

        December 8, 2014 at 10:47 am

        Hey you guys. I tried to convince Colt to ‘let it go’, about 3 months ago. He obviously doesn’t want to let it go, and to be honest, it is really getting funny now. All these goodhearted AVGN Fans, that calmly tried to explain to him that his demands are somehow unjustified… enough of that.
        I see this guy walking by a James Rolfe picture each day (with painted Devil horns or something) shaking his fist in anger, and anticipating the next upload to remind everyone of the aweful wrongdoings he had to endure because he once donated.
        Keep it up Colt, please keep it up.

      • December 8, 2014 at 11:32 am

        @Finallygaf: You know, when you put it like that, he kind of reminds me of Dr. Claw or Team Rocket, eternally scorned over not stopping that pesky Gadget/not stealing that elusive Pikachu from those twerps. Mixed in with a dash of Belson from Cartoon Network’s “Clarence” (to really go for that me-me-me flavoring).

        To be honest, this really is fun 🙂

        December 9, 2014 at 2:33 am

        Here’s part of the new theme song. Sing along:

        He’d rather have a fundraiser
        Pay for his movie than an investor
        He’d rather take a donation
        From his fans and then charge them to see it
        He’s the angriest fundraiser you’ve ever heard

      • December 9, 2014 at 10:36 am

        Mmmmmmehh. Missing lines, missing syllables, rhyming is kinda stretched. I’d give it a B-. You have the foundation, but you shouldn’t need to pass through the bathroom to get to the kitchen.

        This is how you parody lyrics:

        (In tune to AVGN Theme)
        Come check it out cuz here is this guy
        Who comes to this website just to cry
        He’d rather see
        This flick for free
        Even though he hates the concept & plot
        His logic: gone
        Beyond just this song
        He might be happy if he toked on some pot
        He’s the cryingest cryer who dares to cry
        He’s the sad diaper baby guy
        He’s the tantrum-throwing, feet-stamping guy
        He’s the sad diaper baby guy

        See that? Rhyme scheme, lyrical flow, matches original tune. You want to set up parody lyrics so that the reader can hear the original artist voice reciting the words in their head.

        Wig Fitzpatrick,

        I have posted the whole thing before but it got removed.

        Here’s the whole thing:

        He’s gonna take you from the back
        To play shitty games with your ass
        He’d rather have a fundraiser
        Pay for his movie than an investor
        He’d rather take a donation
        From his fans and then charge them to see it
        He’s the angriest fundraiser you’ve ever heard
        He’s the Angry Nutty Turd
        He’s the Angry Corny, Mushy Turd
        He’s the Angry Video Game Turd

        I thought this video about AVGN Fan boys was interesting. Also the guy talked about people giving James free money to make a movie so James could then turn around and sell that movie back to them. Haha.

        You should check it out if you dare: http://youtu.be/pDlMOA9pNIw

      • December 13, 2014 at 11:20 am

        Huh. This raises many questions, so I’ll start with the most important one:

        How long does it take for you to drink milk from a glass?

      • December 15, 2014 at 5:25 pm

        No, for real, I bet it takes no less than a half hour to finish the whole glass, despite the amount you’re clearly drinking, yet for some reason, the amount of milk in the glass never seems to lower.

      • Clover

        December 24, 2014 at 1:01 am

        donation =/= movie ticket…..movie ticket = movie ticket
        If you are confused beyond that, I don’t know what to tell ya!
        ex: Just because I donate money for a museum to be built, doesn’t mean I get free admission (unless it’s specifically promised to me)

      • Dimeback

        January 4, 2015 at 2:18 am

        You know, if this movie didn’t suck, I doubt you would be complaining, so shut the fuck up. I would be glad he even released the movie. Most fan funded movies don’t even get released.

      • James Wolf

        January 6, 2015 at 2:31 pm

        AVGN didn’t force anyone to donate to the development of his film. You shouldn’t expect favoritism for an act of kindness, as it eliminates the very purpose. Expecting him to provide a free movie copy because of a donation is the equivalent of Kanye West expecting a free meal while going to a charity event.

      • March 21, 2016 at 10:45 am

        Pretty sure there’s absolutely fuck all in the definition of donation that say anyone is entitled to anything. They are free gifts. Period. You donated to help make the movie and it was made. Go fuck yourself ungrateful shitbag.

      I hear you there man, I have always been a night owl too, but the majority of my family seems to be early birds 😐

      I hate getting woke up to singing or screaming or full conversations, the possibilities are endless :/

  • December 5, 2014 at 10:32 am

    This is an interesting one. I’m always called out and mocked for being a night owl, I like the idea of what you say about the necessity of needing both. To add to the problem of being nocturnal, I have sleep apnea (which is bullshit) which only adds more aggravation from early birds, as some assume its caused by being awake until the early hours. Like yourself, I’m an artist of sorts (web musician) and have been known to start writing music as early as 4am, you never know when the Creative Bee is gonna sting you.

  • December 5, 2014 at 10:34 am

    Most times I welcome eternal sleep.

  • December 5, 2014 at 10:46 am

    I knew all those previous video’s were leading up to the biggest bullshit yet. I seriously have no idea when to sleep, sometimes I sleep during the day and stay up all night and right now I am in a phase where I go to bed early.
    I just want to remove sleep altogether. There are too many games to play, too many movies to see! It’s driving me crazy because I cant stop thinking about all that I could do!

  • JayRam

    December 5, 2014 at 10:59 am

    If you’re a creative type, it seems nighttime can be the best time to get work done: people are asleep, the house is quiet, and one sits alone with his or her thoughts.

    But, nope, I’ve been working morning shifts for awhile now so I have no such luxury. And that’s bullshit.

    • awesome video games

      December 6, 2014 at 10:30 am

      NO. i will tell you what is BULLSHIT. fucking japanese porn. why the FUCK do the call it porn but then plur the penis and pussy? i have no idea why that country does that. it’s not porn if you won’t show the sex act. james really needs to do this. everyone here enjoys porn once in a while and sometimes we see asian hotties but then after clicking the video, the fucking video is blurred in the private areas including the money shot (cumshot). wtf.

    Being a night owl myself I couldn’t help but relate.
    Sleeping is by definition the ultimate bullshit we have to put up with…but then there’s dreams, which are pretty fucking awesome…or terrifying depending on which kind you’re having.

  • Thifurious

    December 5, 2014 at 11:21 am

    This is so true. I’ve always been a night owl, and seemingly everybody in my family likens it to some kind of laziness, bad behavior, or just in general some kind of wrongdoing. It makes no sense; I’d actually get yelled at for it!

    Bringing up school is such a good point too. It was always so miserable for me to get up crazy early for school; it wasn’t uncommon for me to not have slept at all. There should be an option for grade school – like morning or evening classes. That would have changed my life!.

I’m glad you can make a living out of this but honestly these are just terrible.

  • Joker83

    December 5, 2014 at 1:38 pm

    I think it has to do with the perception of Laziness like you said.

    My biggest Bullshit is “Eating”. It’s an addiction every human shares. We all HAVE to eat, and if we don’t eat we experience terrible pain, exhaustion, loss of concentration, and irritability. It’s like we are all fucking Vampires for food! It’s crazy! Every single day, multiple times a day, you have to decide when and how you will eat and you have to spend money on food. It’s a massive time suck and pain in the ass. I would much rather only have eat once a week or every once in a while, like a Snake. Eat a big meal on Sunday and then be perfectly fine the rest of the week. That’s how it should work. But no, we have to spend money and shove food in our mouths every goddamn day! “What do you wanna eat?” “What should I eat for lunch?” “Who is making dinner tonight?” “There is no food in this house” EVERY DAY!

    • gjr7318

      December 6, 2014 at 10:44 am

      Actually you don’t need to eat multiple times a day to stay healthy. Intermittent fasting and fasting in general when done properly is very good for you. In fact, my opinion is that we have TOO MUCh access to food, too easily, and this is why people in general are not healthy. And apparently you’d rather be a snake or reptile than a person? haha. I enjoy eating and preparing meals, not always, but I’d rather not eat a ton of food once a week personally either way. If you stress over food choices you dont have enough hobbies to occupy yourself…

    I just got home from a 12-hour night shift at 7AM. I wanted to fucking enter the 10,000 year slumber, but my body’s all “fuck you, you’re waking up at 11:00 AM. Good fucking luck at tomorrow’s shift, assface.” This episode, once again, has perfect timing.

  • December 5, 2014 at 2:31 pm

    I think you’re closer on the part where morning people interpret sleeping late as laziness. In America, laziness is sometimes perceived as a moral issue. Read about the Protestant Work Ethic for more on that.

  • windrammingroadkillskunk

    December 5, 2014 at 2:40 pm

    This video was so therapeutic for me. My natural inclination is to go to sleep at six in the morning and wake up at three in the afternoon. Back when I was in high school, I had to get up at FIVE-GODDAMN-THIRTY in the fucking morning to make it to school on time. I fucking hated it. I was a zombie throughout most of high school and I coasted through it as far as grades go because I was too tired to concentrate. I’m in college now and I always make sure I don’t have any classes earlier than seven in the morning. Five-fucking-thirty. That is absolutely ri-goddamn-diculous.

    That being said, please lose the shit mask already. It adds nothing to this series and merely distracts from the topic at hand. I liked YKWBS better when it was just a voice-over.

    Interesting vid. Not sure I agree with all of your points, but I totally identify with the whole getting up for school early part. I always loved to sleep in, and had to be prodded with a fork lift to get out. Never was an early riser, in any sense of the word.

  • December 5, 2014 at 5:13 pm

  • Don Skiver

    December 5, 2014 at 6:19 pm

    You’re right James. Early birds making fun of night owls IS bullshit. I’m neither a true early bird, nor a true night owl. I get up at 5am every day for work, and I “go to bed” at ~1am. Wanna know my secret? I’ve trained myself to have a polyphasic sleeping schedule. I sleep a few times a day for a much shorter period. I get about 1 hour of sleep around noon (on my lunch break), 1 hour after I get home around 5pm, 1 hour again around 9pm, and then 4 hours (the bulk of my sleep) when I go to bed at 1am. That’s my schedule and works pretty good for me, though every polyphasic sleeper has a different schedule that works for them. I knew a guy who would sleep for 30 minutes every couple hours and…that was it. He was an architect who worked from home and he used to get a TON of shit done. I personally couldn’t handle his schedule, but I did find one that works for me and allows me to get more done. I’m still getting the same number of hours of rest, and I get all my REM sleep late at night. I definitely recommend you check out polyphasic sleeping for humans.

    Another great episode. I hate the stupid notion of “wake up late = Lazy”, specially coming from assholes that go to bed early and sleep like 10 freaking hours!. Currently I’m working 8 hour shifts on a 24/7 service so my sleep hours are all over the place. Sometimes I have to wake up at 5:00AM and other times I can sleep until 1:00PM. I prefer afternoon or night shifts, having to go to bed at 9:00PM sucks!

  • diegowar

    December 5, 2014 at 7:16 pm

  • MadHitz

    December 6, 2014 at 1:09 am

    The hardest thing about being getting up early is just the act of getting out of bed and stepping into the shower. Once I do that, I’m good to go. If I don’t make myself get out of bed, I could probably sleep for 14 hours straight (and I have before).

  • December 6, 2014 at 1:55 am

    I can’t really agree that sleep itself is bullshit, considering that we’d all go insane without it. Plus, dreams can be pretty awesome. But, I agree with the early bird vs. night owl argument. I think it probably is a generational thing, something that goes back to the dawn of man. Night was always associated with evil, death, monsters, etc. Now that we know the night isn’t reserved for the fuckin devil, maybe folks can start letting up on night owls. And if the early birds still don’t like us, then they can slurp our coxen.

    Funny stuff, James. Keep ’em comin!

    • diegowar

      December 8, 2014 at 12:25 am

      That’s the thing though. You’re forced to do it, or else you get extremely tired. How bullshit is that ? The only other thing that does this, is hunger. But eating is way, way better than sleeping. Eating actually feels good (compared to not feeling anything at all), and is much, much quicker than sleeping for hours. Having to sleep is bullshit. Of course if you consider it “as a cure to fatigue”, then yeah it’s somewhat better, but it’s still a “pick your poison” kind of situation, would you rather be tired, or be dead for a few hours ?

    I viewed an episode of “City Confidential” in which a Ben Franklin impersonator interviewed (the episode was based in Philadelphia), and he commented that that statement can be open to interpretation (example: early to bed cab be 5AM,early to rise can be 1PM). I thought it was an interesting way to look at ol’ Ben Franklin’s quote.

    Oh man, I am a complete and total night owl and words can not describe how miserable getting up early for school made, that and homework were easily the worst parts of school.

    I remember how my mom would have to drag me kicking and screaming out of bed, how I would lurch zombie like to slowly gnaw on some cereal and watch shitty morning cartoons with a glazed eye stare, it was hellish.

  • December 6, 2014 at 5:32 am

    Spot on man, this is definitely my favorite Bullshit episode. I’m a nightowl myself and I’m SO fucking sick of people treating me like I’m a goddamn 6th grader simply for the fact I sleep when I’m tired, which is often at the asscrack of dawn when those assholes wake up. Fuck you if you think something as simple as waking up at a certain time makes you “more important” than others.

  • Goatrider

    December 6, 2014 at 6:52 am

    Fun editorial. However, it feels forced into your You Know What’s Bullshit-category. It’s more of an essay on the two camps of sleepers than an explanation on why it’s bullshit.

  • December 6, 2014 at 8:21 am

    Thanks, James. I feel… partially vindicated – being stigmatised just because I have a tendency to sleep until the early afternoon is BS. I think the night owl/early bird dichotomy has its genesis in the formative years (school) – I had to get up early to get to school since I was 4 years old, and that barely helped my opinion of things. If it were pushed back to a few more years (start school at age 7), then maybe – MAYBE – the night owl/early bird ratio can be balanced out more evenly.

  • derneuejonathan

    December 6, 2014 at 1:15 pm

    OMFG, YES! For me the perfect job would be one that starts at 2pm, runs to 10pm, and I do whatever errands and house work after that. Go to bed around 3 or 4am, and get up at noon. The only time I can fall asleep before 1am is if I’m sick or I did something to totally exhaust myself. The bullshit thing though is, if I get up to be at work at 8am (let’s say that means getting up at 6am), one would think that I’d be ready to fall asleep by 10pm, right? Wrong. I’m tired all day, but come evening, I’m no longer tired. And I can’t fall asleep until at least 1am again. Repeat. Repeat for months, years, and you have a perpetually sleep-deprived zombie. The only time I get enough sleep is weekends, or when I am unemployed, or on vacation, or whatever.

    I even had a talk with my boss about this and said that, since the work I do doesn’t require a lot of input from others, if I could set my own shift I’d have a lot more energy and be more productive. Absolutely. Nothing of it. She’s a goddamned morning person who is up before dawn without an alarm every day, runs 5k, eats, showers, and leaves for work by 7:30. And who is in bed daily by 8:30.

    That’s bullshit.

    In vindication of Benjamin Franklin, he lived before electric lighting, so it was sort of hard for anyone to get anything done at night anyway. If you think it’s dark outside at night now, try that without any light pollution and you get a pitch black unlike any other.

    This epoisode actually makes a great point. One girl that I dated from college would often mention how she was an early bird, but she’d say it in this snarky tone like she’s better than me, because I’m a night owl. It’s really annoying.

    Part of the reason why I’m a night owl is because I don’t ever get to do everything that I’d like to do during the day. People are often texting me or wanting to hang out, or I’ll have classes to go to, and I’ll have to wait until night to actually get some alone time. The day is just often very busy for me, and I’m a bit of an introvert, so I like just being able to chill out by myself.

    College life also sort of forces you to be a night owl as well. Oftentimes I’ll have simultaneous projects going on at once, and I absolutely NEED to stay up until around 2 AM to make the time to finish them, as well as doing the stuff I wanted to do.

      Your brother is a piece of work !

      Here’s an idea : Do the same to him. When he goes to sleep, well time to play some Counter Strike ! When he realizes how annoying it is not to be able to sleep, maybe he’ll be more careful himself.

    I was always a night owl and absolutely hated grade school. I had to get up for school before the frikken sun even came up! Thankfully I got to schedule night classes when I went to college. My grades went straight to the top as a result. At any rate, I’m guilty of pulling the shaving cream prank on a friend. I tickled his face after doing it, and he instinctively began rubbing his eyes when he woke up. Shaving cream got rubbed right in and he began screaming “AHHHH! Oh my God!! What have you done to me?!?” as he goes stumbling into the backroom to flush his eyes out. I felt bad about it after.

    I’ve worked the night shift for five years so this Bullshit hits home. Everyone thinks, “Oh, that’s great… you have all day to do shit.” Because apparently I require no sleep at all, and if THEY’RE awake, clearly everyone else on Earth must be awake and follow the same schedule, too. Night people just work in some sleepwalking state and when the sun comes up they’re well rested. I’ve tried explaining how it works for literal years to the same people, and they’ll nod their head and swear they understand… then get frustrated when you don’t want to get up four hours early to go to dinner. It’s like some retarded perception of object permanence.

    Sleeping is fuckin’ awesome. I love waking up early because it means I’m awake longer and can then get a wicked fuckin’ sleep that night. I also like staying up late because it means I’m so tired when I finally do get to sleep that I pass right the fuck out. Sleep rules.

    Oh, Sweet Sunlight that burns us, I’m a night owl. One of my friends INSISTS on waking me up early because she gets up at dawn and why should I sleep in? I keep trying to explain to her that I get to bed hours after her, but nope, doesn’t matter.
    Finally she agreed to let me sleep and hang in the afternoon, but she still doesn’t agree with it.

    While some people do make fun of night owls, the much more common case i see is people making fun of others for sleeping 15 hours a day. its not going to late later and waking up later. its going to sleep at 8pm and then claiming that those 18 hours of sleep wasnt enough.

  • December 20, 2014 at 4:39 am

    as they say:
    “The early bird gets the worm
    but the night owl gets the prey!”
    yea screw you early birds while your fighting over a tiny worm, imma be feasting on a big, nice juicy rat! and with that I’m going to sleep, its 4:40 am here.

    What AVGN has said in this video is definitely true, especially those who are stuck in their traditional ways and outdated values. One day, a friend of mines called me and realized I was sleeping during the evening time (I use to spend the majority of my time at night) and said I shouldn’t be sleeping during the evening time and thought I was “lazy” as a result. This person is a much older individual than myself, but was oblivious to the life-styles of the younger generation. During that time, I was attending college full-time with additional courses, and working a 30-40 hour job a week.

    Early birds are basically routine Nazis and they fear and are jealous of anyone that can operate on a flexible schedule so they are compelled to ridicule and force anyone not like them to reset and adhere to their view on life so they aren’t potentially missing anything.

    I’m unfortunately both a night owl and early bird. I would stay up at all hours of the night writing, then go to bed and find I can’t keep sleeping when the sun’s out. If it weren’t for forcing myself into a sleep schedule, I’d sleep two hours every night.
