I'm aYoutube content creator who knows Jon and Arin. Ask me anything.
Jon left because the channel was becoming a higher priority than Jontronshow. Arin then started adding more shows (Steam Train) and Jon told Arin that he was becoming "pewdie-ish" in the early Steam Train recording process. They had a huge fight, and Jon left LA to New York to be with his girlfriend.
They used to fight a lot.
If I did I'd reveal my identity, but I can go further into detail, and when all this gets out years from now, you'll know I'm telling the truth.
I can actually believe this. That's exactly what Steam Train is to a T. It's fucking PewDiePie-ish and appeals to audiences who like loud noises and nonsense rather than intelligent conversations and actual jokes. Seems like a perfectly valid complaint.
It took about two and a half weeks, because they still had legal matters to deal with. Jon was replaced extremely quickly though. So quickly that there's thoughts amongst the youtube community that Arin had been planning on replacing him for a really long time.
He just doesn't pay attention
A couple years now.
They're not as far as I know.
thats why you sage you fucking summer cancer faggot
A lot of their fights would just end with "let's agree to disagree". Jon really admired Arin, so Arin would practically bully him, and Jon would act like he couldn't tell. Arin also didn't want the conflict to bleed onto the show, although it did a few times.
Nope, not one bit. Jon, Arin and Barry have been in my content, and I've been in a couple NSP videos. I have been told by Barry that I am in consideration for replacement if anybody leaves the channel the though.
I'm not, sorry to burst your bubble.
Sorry, I wasn't there.
OP, is your name Jim by chance? Were you the editor for the first NSP videos?
Is Jon mad about Barry too?
Was Jon invited to Arin & Suzy's wedding?
How's Danny IRL?
A lot of people don't like her, and I can see why. She's one of those people that wants so desperately to be interesting, but is really just boring. Table Flip was her idea, but it was Arin's to include her in GG in the first place. She's really sweet, but she should just stay in the background, because she's pretty annoying.
Arin would make fun of a lot of Jon's interest (theater, new york, conker etc) and would patronize Jon for liking them. This was the cause of a lot of their fights. Arin also claimed that Jon was ruining his career a couple times during arguments.
Do you think that Arin was looking to replace Jon or do you think that he just had a contingency plan in place in case he ever left? Given that Barry has told you that you'd be considered it doesn't seem unheard of that shortly after the start of the show Arin or someone approached Danny and had him waiting in the wings.
I make pokemon lets plays when Im not working on my music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1LCyJQJwG0&list=UUFzF4Jaw_9_2_p1pyWvt6GA feed back?
>pokemon lets play
>when Im not working on my musical career
jesus christ you are a huge faggot
who the fuck are you? are you trying to pretend to be OP? fuck off
>Jon told Arin that he was becoming "pewdie-ish"
That sounds way too real for it to not be true
Well he's basically already called Arin an micromanaging asshole, implied heavily that he's why Jon left the show, and called Suzy boring. I think that would severely hurt his chances of being next in line after Danny.
who's Jon's GF? I went to high school with him, so I'm semi interested
I don't know if OP is trolling but this is interesting either way.
I hate Egoraptor personality wise, but I like the content he puts out.
If this is actually true then I guess my gut feeling was right.
No. Barry and Jon haven't spoken since he left. He was not.
People deserve to know.
I feel like he's wanted the show to just be him and Dan for a while, and was looking to replace Jon for a while.
Rep and shit.
No, but Jon occasionally drank before recordings, which was another point of contention.
Nicole Rodriquez, I've only met her once, and she's super cool.
It was always off the show, and a lot of the time behind his back.
They did, but when Jon saw the result, he wanted to can it.
I'm still friends with him, but he was kind of a dick to Jon. He's super cool if you're the right kind of person.
I wasn't, but I do know some of the people in it.
What is Arin's relationship with Dan like? Sometimes he comes off as condescending.
Also, do Arin and Dan really think Ross is an idiot?
Sometimes it seems Barry is fucking Suzy on the side. Can this be disproven?
It sounds like bullshit, cause they actually know pewdiepie and know he's not a cunt (don't get me wrong, his audience is).
Also, relevant babymetal reaction image.
Jon's excuse for stopping the show was wanting to focus more on JonTron, but JonTron episodes are still coming out at about the same rate. Did you see any kind of laziness characteristics in him or is that show just really that difficult to produce?
It'll soon be one year of Jew-grumps, do you miss Jon or do you like Dan & Arin's content as well?
Lots of people have mentioned that Arin was "acting" while recording episodes, that he wasn't truly having fun playing... Is it true?
Is Barry single?
In which NSP videos did you appeared?
Do you still talk with Jon?
OP, to prove this is real, ask arin to thank Christopher Poole for sending in a game or to shout something in any of the future episodes.
i always got the impression that arin was a total bully to jon. it definitely showed on screen and it's starting to come up with danny now, too.
but danny seems too passive to do anything about it. arin is killing NSP and i'm really fucking unhappy about that, personally.
>Arin also claimed that Jon was ruining his career a couple times during arguments.
How exactly did he rationalize that? Did he mean his career as an aspiring animator or his "career" as a let's play commentator?
He wants people to remember his rap album.
He's kind of a fag. He's one of those people that doesn't understand why he's so unfunny, and is surrounded by people that tell him he's funny.
Micheal from Belated Media discovered my content and we started talking. He introduced me to Jon and Arin, and that's that.
No, nobody in the Youtube community does.
Arin and Dan get along fine and really like Ross.
Oney, Ross, PsychicPebbles, Yamamoto (Girlchan guy) and the rest are nobodies.
Arin doesn't know Pew and Jon is friends with him, but neither like his content.
A little bit of both, it's mostly just his tendency to lose track of time and get distracted.
I never really watched it that much anyway. I'm fairly sure that Arin was acting. Barry is single. I can't remember the names of all of them, but The Party one, the Party of three, best friends forever, and a couple others I can't remember.
I don't think it was implying that pewdiepie is a cunt, but rather than the Game Grumps channel & Arin was becoming "pewdiepie"-ish in the sense that it stopped being about the games and just talking about games in general in a casual but more about "WHOOOOOOOOOO OH MY GOD I'M OVER-REACTING SO HARD TO THIS,LET ME MAKE NOISE WITH MY MOUTH" which is100% what Arin has become since game Grumps started.
Also we /b/abymetal now
OP, would you by chance be Barry yourself? I can honestly believe Barry would be caught on 4chan, but I could also believe you would be Brian of NSP. Or is there a possibility you're Grant Kirkhope, because I would have a massive boner if you were.
Am I on the right track?
Also, if what you say is true so far, then answer this for me: Are those currently on TableFlip, GameGrumps and SteamTrain contractually obligated to NOT speak about Jon?
This thread is getting really interesting. I am a big fan of JonTronShow and I have always hated Game Grumps for how it became Jons main thing instead of JonTronShow. And I have always hated Arin. Sure some of his animations are great but other than that I have always felt like he's a big fucking douche. On a scale from 1 to 10 how big of a douche is Arin?
Just my two cents: but it seems like he's stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to his content and style of humour.
One one hand, people whore are a bit more liberal tend to dislike his content because he constantly makes fat jokes and calls enemies "bitch" and although he's stopped doing it now, a few years ago he couldn't make a single video without having like 4 rape jokes.
On the other hand, the "hardcore gamer" community also hate his content because he plays almost nothing but casual horror games or things like prophunt and is seen as the original face-came over-reactor that spawned a thousand Seananners and Markipliers.
But he's literally the most subscribe channel on youtube and his videos get millions of view with tens of thousands of likes, so obviously someone somewhere likes it.
Everyone who guesses Barry gets ignored. OP is clearly Barry.
Cool beans, were you a D-clubber?
Animation and potential further success as a LP-er.
As far as I'm aware, no.
A lot, but I can't say for sure, they won't say. I know they still send Jon a monthly check.
Not really. I think Markiplier does, but I barely know him.
This is bullshit.
I'm not Barry, Brian or Grant, but I do know that they are under obligation to keep quiet.
Already answered, and I've never met Brian. I hate Table Flip.
I have no idea, but he's kind of awkward, so that stops him a lot.
It really depends on who you are. He's super cool to people he deems cool enough.
>If I did I'd reveal my identity, but I can go further into detail, and when all this gets out years from now, you'll know I'm telling the truth.
What are you some sort of secret service agent or something?
Do you like babymetal, anon?
I fucking loved that Grant Kirkhope episode but why are you guys believing this shit? OP hasn't provided any proof nor can he make any in the future. Honestly, you're worse than pic related.
What is he's Stamper? That would make this great.
OP, I'm sure you've seen the "investigation" an anon did at one point to deem that "Jon was abused by his parents". What do you know about this, if anything?
>also /r/ing that image of how it was assumed
If I presented my 7/10 gf to Danny and asked him to fuck her do you think he would do it?
I wouldnt be in the room or anything. She just wants to bang him and I get a threesome if it ever happens.
>I have been told by Barry that I am in consideration for replacement if anybody leaves the channel the though.
So if Barry saw this thread there is a big risk he'd know who you are?
With that in mind do you think that people on YouTube are just fucking stupid? His content clearly appeals to the absolute lowest common denominator. Is it time for a thinking man's YouTube much in the way that Facebook used to be the thinking man's MySpace?
The real question is: what do the grumps think of babymetal?
Does Arin really have a Bad dragon dildo? Or was that infamous image shopped?
This isn't questioning his sexuality, I know he has a wife, I just wanna know if he really has that dildo
Do you still keep in contact with Jon?
Is he happy where he is? I've been watching Jon since his days as The Onion King on Screwattack back when he got around 3-5k a vid. I was there when that ugly POS that was the OG Normal Boots started. It disappointed me when he when GG became his main thing, I just hope that he's happy doing what he's doing now and didn't leave because of fan pressure or anything.
Yes and yes.
Never even listened to it, and based off of that clip, no.
I'm not Stamper, and all of that basically boils down to Jon being a kid. He thinks it's stupid now, and tried to submit it to the cringe channel once.
They were friends at one point.
A year or two, maybe never, but I do know one thing, if somebody does spill the beans, it'll be Jon.
Nah, there were like six of us in the room.
Barely ever talk.
A lot of my shots are done away from him, and he like to stay "in character" during the shoot. I mean, we've been in the same room, but we've never been formally introduced.
A grumps fan sent it to him.
Yes. I hung out with him when he came back to LA. He's much happier now.
Nope, I don't even think PBG knows Arin.
Interesting read OP, this whole thread I mean.
I'm not sure if I buy it but you do sound at least semi-legit. You seem to be all about making pretty harsh character judgements on all these dudes (Ross is unfunny, Dan is awkward, Arin is a bully, etc), BUT I will concede that your assessment of Suzy seems really, really spot on. Trying way too hard to be interesting and funny and just not being very good at it. I've always though that. She seems nice though.
I do have a question for you though. Are you not at all concerned with someone here figuring out your identity, since you're apparently a Youtube personality? Additionally, are you not at all concerned with Arin, Jon, Barry or whoever seeing this was way or another and being able to pretty quickly figure out who you are and that you're saying all this shit? Just curious.
Do you personally watch any of the GG vids? Do they find their fans annoying? What's their thoughts on their Fanbase? Can you name any episodes of GG where they were actually fighting during it?
Also OP, are you playing D&D in this picture?
> let's get this terrible party started
Arin used to lurk /v/, and I think he still does, though he denies it. Jon occasionally lurks and posts on /v/. Ross and Barry browse /tv/.
Everybody hates the GG fans, including them.
We've met, but we don't really ever hang out.
Not all of them.
He has more than one, asshat. The one in the picture was sent by GG fans. I think he threw the /v/ one away.
Like 6 months in, there's an episode of Sonic 06 where Jon mentions it.
They all run train on Susie right?
okay, so I see a lot of strong sides being taken between John and Danny...
Is there anything wrong with liking both of them? I feel like John has a smaller comedy pool, but he's much better at that pool, while Danny's pool is much bigger, but more diluted.
Would I be wrong in saying that?
Bumping this fantastic bread
Nah, you'd be pretty much right saying that. I think what happened was that the initial magic isn't there any more. The early days were new and exciting. It's really just become another LP channel a small cut above the rest.
Possibly, I've never asked.
It's utter crap.
Jon's video sums up my feelings.
I'd say no, but who knows.
That's fairly accurate.
Fairly popular, but less so than Jon and Arin.
He's friends with Arin.
They're just annoying.
They have an office and record once a week in it.
They're friends, but never talk due to Arin being their mutual connection.
Man, I don't know.
I couldn't tell you.
Yes, but they appear more often in mine.
They just got the office recently. I think Suzy tweeted about it or something, you can look it up.
That's where they used to record.
Yes and yes.
Arin was a dick.
>Do they ever just toss out shit from the P.O box? Like not even bother to look at it and just toss the shit?
I wouldn't be surprised.
I tend to lean more towards Jon since I've been around since their first video, but Dan has his moments and isn't bad. It's just lost the chemistry the original videos had. Honestly, if there's one person on the crew I find the least funny, it's Arin. At least Ross has his moments, Arin just sort of shoves himself into videos where he doesn't need to be. Not every Steam Train episode needs Arin, you know?
I dunno if this would be too far in the circle for you, but I gotta ask: In the Starbomb animated Video "Its dangerous to go alone" was it always Arin's idea to have the Band members being the guys from Majora's mask, or is that an homage to one of the Fanimated music videos that happens to depict the same thing?
Just curious if that guy got recognized, or overshadowed.
He said at Magfest that he wouldn't appear on the show, not even as a guest
The videos were longer because Jon got distracted and forgot to keep track of the time.
He swears he'll never return.
I have no idea.
I didn't know him back then, but I am still friends with him.
When Jon and Arin became non friends was it like if Arin said something rude to Jon and then Jon said something rude back or was it just constant rudeness from Arin and Jon was the innocent in all this?
He never really comes up.
I don't know the specifics, but I'm pretty sure they both took part in the shit-flinging.
I don't know what you mean.
Jon's goofy and humble, Barry's goofy and humble, Arin's a confident guy, Ross is a fag, and Dan's super nice and humble.
Because his GG videos still make money.
Wait, it can't be oney, because you said you don't talk to stamper that much. But you might of denied that on purpose. I was pretty sure oney was in a vocaroo thread a few months ago. It couldn't be zack either so this could be either El-Cid or Twisted Grim. Hmmm OP gimme a clue that no one will catch onto?
Did Arin just totally give up on being an animator?
Between being on The Tester, starting Game Grumps with Jon, re-branding Game Grumps and its 3 different spin-offs with Suzy and Barry and Dany and Rossy, being on that Dancing with the Youtubers thing and recording his comedy rap album, he's animated one video himself? Pokeawesome 2, and I think we can all agree that it was far from his best work. Even the animated music videos were done by different people.
So is he just trying to milk this cash cow for all it's worth and trying to be on the next "big thing" (King of The Nerds 4?) or is he secretly working on his animation skills while doing all this?
>doesn't reveal identity
>has been in a "few" NSP
>knows both Jon and Arin, but is not in GG.
Its obvious you are ninja brian or Stamper or OneyNG. GIVE IT UP YOU DAYS ARE NUMBERED
I've never been asked.
They don't want the controversy and they have contracts that prevent them from talking.
He still animates, it just takes him forever because he's lazy.
I'm none of them.
as i get older i personally find the conceit that what we consume as entertainment validates our intelligence.
i dont consider myself a brilliant man, but not an idiot either id hope. but fuck if i dont like the wacky antics of a three stooges short and an episode of south park just as much as the black humor of something like fargo or a reading up on the antics of diogenes.
I honestly think people on the internet are so consumed with having others think they are smart they honestly think what makes them laugh also has to be smart. which really just seems sad to me.
i say enjoy what you enjoy.
If you could give a rough estimate on their income, what would it be? 100k a year? 500k a year? Higher?
Also, is Danny a yes man or owe Arin something? He seems so forced into the show and it feels like Arin has him wrapped around his finger.
Most of their laughable content is in Pokemon FireRed.
Why? becose it feels like they aren't recording a LP, it's a real couple of dudes being dudes in a Room. The fun about their Channel is that it doesn't look like they are recording, but they look like they are being recorded.
I really enjoy listening to this faggots losing it, and i don't care about how they manage their internal stuff, but man... if Dan decides to leave or Arin wants to stop it. I wouldn't be really concerned. If they stop now, it would be a good ending.
tl;dr: Fuck what Barry said, make your own LP channel, asshole.
Is there currently any issues fucking with GG? behind the scenes fights or arguments?
Jontron seemed like a cool dude and Arin was the cunt. There HAS to be some issues with Arin and another member.
Have Danny and Arin ever had a fight to your knowledge? With Jon and Arin it would make sense because they kind of co-founded the show and might have different ideas about where to take it. Dan kind of just seems like he's along for the ride and that Arin runs the show entirely from a creative standpoint now.
How much do I need to pay you to kill Ross
I think things would be a lot better if he were dead
"Next time on Jew-Grumps: Killing Ross: The musical"
big deal i know philip defranco, onision, the amazing atheist, laci green, and mannix the pirate
Oh man I have to know,
Im sure SOMEBODY has said it to him at one point but...
How does Arin handle people shitting on his new found "rapping" career? Im sure his fans dick rides him regardless but there has to be atleast one person to tell him the truth.
I'd probably get dropped from Polaris and lose any chance of a GG guest spot.
Not that I'm aware of.
nah, just weird
no and no
That's actually pretty accurate.
This is bullshit. Jon and Arin had a fight over their girlfriends.
TL;DR Suzy was fishing for compliments, but Jon's girlfriend wasn't having that and said something snarky.
OP is a lying shithead
Has any of the members of Two Best Friends conversed with the GG guys?
I'd really love to think of Pat calling Ego a shit for his recent performance in Dark Souls or something.
If Jon offered you a chance to join him in a new LP channel he was making would you join him or stick with the possible GG spot?
Also, does Barry realize how shit Arin is? Does he stay for the money or what?
Hey guys, OP here. I just wanted to tell you all that you are so fucking retarded for actually believing me. I'll be off now, toodles!
Considering how he couldn't figure out that he had to climb a ladder that was already set up at the end of an alley in The Last Of Us, then once he figured out that he had to climb the ladder he still couldn't figure out which button it was that made him climb the ladder (the same it always was for the rest of the game), claimed that the game was bugged, restarted it several times and then finally took him like 7 minutes to do what took anyone else 30 seconds to do, he shouldn't be throwing stones.
rereading that comment:
>the person that said whatever about comedy (you) is not fedora
>i am fedora
it's not even about you being a fedora he's saying that you dropped your fedora because you're acting like a pretentiously autistic asshat.
