  1. ​Because money is money. Phil is massively in debt and soliciting Patreon donations. The whole point of suggestions is to ultimately get him out of debt. Thus, how Phil spends his money is perfectly germane to the discussion.
  2. ​Most recent graduates aren't massively in debt, believe it or not. That's the minority. But to answer your question, if the recent grad was ALSO begging for money online while being in massive debt, then yes, I would tell him blowing money on a trip to Vegas would be a bad idea. ​I lived in LA County for 5 years and ate pizza quite regularly at a variety of restaurants. I've never, ever spent $30 on a pizza. Can you please inform me what specific places charged that amount for a single pizza?
  3. The hotel Phil stays at is $200/night. The pizza he bought is $30, so it's reasonable to assume food for the "staycation" is well over $100. He unveiled his Blu-Ray collection a while back. He had about 300 individual movie/television discs. At a reasonable $30 per disc, that's $9,000. He spent "hundreds" on a mobile game, WWE Supercard. He's leasing a BMW when he could have simply bought a more modest car. ALL of this while he is massively in debt. AND soliciting donations. AND PandaLee isn't working, studying, or has any plans to. (Homemade soap on Etsy isn't going to bring anything in for at least a year, if not longer; the competition is too massive and you need something unique to stand out...much like Youtube Let's Plays) I am astounded.
  4. ​Myself and others have noted this multiple times throughout the topic, but Phil ignored it above.
  5. ​I always did prefer the book, even given my love of Ursula Andress. Anyways, "Jill, you remind me of my mother. She was the biggest whore in Alameda and the finest woman that ever lived. Whoever my father was, for an hour...or for a month, he must have been a happy man."
  6. ​If you genuinely knew that without looking it up in a search engine, I'm impressed. Anyways, let's go with Doctor No for the current one, but I will let MDCFAN101 confirm, since I don't know whether that was in the very first Bond, or an early sequel.
  7. Very sad. The guy had legitimate talent. Haloid, Dead Fantasy, working for Namco Bandai and later Rooster Teeth. A tragic and random death I can personally sympathize with, too. He was really ahead of his time when he Haloid was first released in 2007.
  8. 1. Stream interactivity is what practically every single Twitch channel does already. It's baffling that you actively avoid doing so, and are presenting it as a Patreon incentive. In what way would doing this immediately hurt your income? 2. Normally, Twitch and Youtube streamers that receive donations, even $1 on one occasion (nevermind $25 pledged monthly) will give that person a shout out.
  9. ​Superman "He died on his knees. I took his head and raped his woman before his blood was even cold."
  10. ​No need to get butthurt because I brought up a fact you weren't aware of. :)
  11. Lethal Weapon 2. However, it's not a singular quote; one character says "Diplomatic immunity" and another replies "It's just been revoked". It's technically two quotes. Anyways, ""That's a damn stupid thing to do"
  12. ​John Woo's City on Fire "inspired" Reservoir Dogs, to the point where the entire plot and numerous individual scenes (even the bathroom story) are virtually identical between the two. Anyways, I haven't seen as many heist movies as I would like, but let's go with Running out of Time (1999) and Charley Varrick (1973)
  13. ​Whether you believe the parodies illuminate an important underlying point about Let's Players and their unique, lucky position. ​Hmm....I seem to recall you making multiple videos calling out Nintendo for being "greedy motherfuckers" hurting you financially, throwing a Wii U into the trash, and lambasting them as recently as your last Hate Live. That sure doesn't seem like someone "not affected at all". ​That's not what it's "basically saying" at all. They're mocking Let's Players who believe they have a God-given right to stream Nintendo games on Youtube. Nowhere, however, are they stating that Nintendo's actions are either correct or just. Just because an article parodies one extreme position doesn't mean they believe the polar opposite. ​It's another example of what you consider "malicious, mean slander", but the majority of your fanbase finds cool and funny.
  14. ​1. But do you agree with the points they make? If not, then why? 2. Out of curiosity, do you consider every parody about you or even disagreeing with you "malicious and mean"? I've never seen you say "hey, that's a funny parody!". Instead, they're all cruel insults meant to slander you. I personally disagree that the articles were in any way "malicious" or "mean". And I imagine the overwhelming majority of fans feel similarly. This is oddly akin to the situation with "This is How you Don't Play MGS2/MGS3" and "A Day in the Life of DarkSydePhil"; whatever happened to the "equal opportunity jokester"? ​I just knew you would like and agree with that one! :)
  15. I came across two articles that, while not directly about Phil, do a good job of addressing the situation between him and Nintendo he mentioned in the last "Ask the King"; http://www.p4rgaming.com/guest-post-nintendo-took-away-my-youtube-lets-play-money-how-can-i-make-money-now/ http://www.p4rgaming.com/guest-post-why-cant-nintendo-see-that-making-lets-play-videos-is-a-legitimate-job/ (In fact, the majority of the comments for that second article believe it is directly talking about DSP!) And amusingly, a reply to the first article, by one Mr.Smokeslighly sounds like it practically could have been written by Phil himself; Focus- How accurate do you think these articles are in describing the feelings DSP has towards Nintendo? Who do you think is in the right?
  16. ​Please stop with these absurd excuses and mis-characterizations of the US job market. They might fool your teen fans that have never held a full-time job in their lives, but they sound ridiculous to me, a 27 year-old working a white collar job. The US economy is decent right now. Not great, but significantly improved from when you were laid off in 2010. I'm not in the "upper rung of society" and applied for a job like anyone else, and got it. If you have any marketable skills, then finding a job in Seattle is not that difficult; it's a hot-bed for start-ups and big companies alike. If you would rather do Youtube because playing games for 6+ hours a day while starting streams late is easier and (for now) pays better, fine. But don't whine and claim the job market is impossible, because it's not. Not even close.
  17. I would like to dispel the ridiculous notion that Phil can't get a job because some people have criticized him on the Internet. Employers will check to make sure that -You're not a criminal. -You went to the schools and held the jobs you claim to. -In some cases, that you don't have anything overly embarrassing/criminal on your personal Facebook profile. That's it. Considering there are former pornstars who now have decent regular jobs in society, a profession that burns a hell of a lot more bridges than making gaming videos people mock, this is nothing more than a self-pitying excuse.

    DSPGaming Wiki

    I've made a lot of edits and improvements to DSP's Wikipedia page, particularly the intro, "Commentary Style", and "Criticism", complete with links to provide evidence. I also added a new section about Phil Parodies/Montages. I urge you all to check it out. :) However, I also posted a warning at the bottom of the page for a certain editor from here who doesn't understand a Wiki's criteria for objectivity and distances from the subject. I noted that further vandalism of this nature can result in his Wiki account being banned.
  19. ​The last two questions are subjective. The first one, however, is completely objective. One can simply compare the date of various Let's Plays to see who was first. And your initial gaming videos on Youtube were made long after series by ProtonJon, slowbeef, and others. In fact, despite claiming it's "subjective", you confuse yourself later by stating ​Perhaps the problem is that you don't understand what "objective" and "subjective" mean, and are confusing "facts" with "opinions"? I will help you; facts are objective. They're either events that occurred, or provable phenomena. For instance, "there are 31 days in January". Opinions, however, are subjective. They can't be demonstrated as either true or false. For instance, "Phil's video content is outstanding". ​Write a good, clear Patreon description without a litany of grammar/syntax mistakes, factually inaccurate claims, and a laughably demented selfie.
