  • 4 hour video means you can't criticise lol, this guy has fruit for brains lol. I came late to Critical Role and heavily criticised Willingham's behaviour in the first season, actually found out he was a fan favourite lol, and even had a twerp called 'Philip' start getting angry at my comments ;) Travis 'Philip' Willingham didn't know what Critical Role would become and he was obnoxious burping and threatening at people on the show often, did stuff which would have seen him KO'd in many games haha. But at the end of the day how far did he cross the line in being a twerp? Not that far. But still enough for it to be highlighted. I still think he and his wife are out for themselves and would for the money ditch Matt and everyone else though Laura would have more reservations, but of course that offer would never come from anywhere, it's a roleplaying campaign after all. Surprises me zero that Philip is CEO lol.

  • Matt always reminding us that being a "good human being" is not that hard. And an excellent job on Philip's end, I'm not a follower and didn't know your work but I really enjoyed it. Fresh and honest. What I still can't even picture is what reason could ANY person have to threaten someone to death because of a tabletop game. I'm just too curious. Is it about game mechanics? Like "HOW COULD YOU NOT REMEMBER THAT MAGE ARMOR IS + DEX!?" or like "That spell is concentration you moron, you need to die!" Really, how? Why? I understand this is a sensible topic for the victim but I'm just dying to know.

  • Control over a circumstance larger than one's self and out of one's true control - that is absolutely a factor that drives people with relative anonymity on the internet to say and do terrible things. I've done it for sure. We often treat this medium as a massive open and public forum when our conversations tend to be no deeper than a volley of immediate emotional reactions. The sincerest instances of "cancel culture" on Twitter are just as poorly researched and shallow in effectual meaning as the intentionally defamatory ones. On the opposite end of the chill spectrum, the communities in 4chan and Kiwi that speak on their distaste of policing behavior act as if some invisible but organized SJW conglomerate is somehow forcing content creators to limit the range of their communication abilities. The Internet is a very freeing medium for people who feel they don't have a voice, and it can be frightening when people feel as if their voices are being restricted or their activities observed.

  • 29:10 I disagree with that. Not because it isn't often true, but I think true forgiveness should come from other people too. It is important to forgive yourself, but we live in a world that isn't willing to forgive others, and it honestly makes me sad. This idea strikes at the heart of cancel culture.

  • As someone in the power industry, this “crunch culture” thing is present here too. I would assume it is present in most, if not all, industries (as Matt acknowledged). 80 hour weeks are not uncommon, even now, under covid. In the power industry, loss in quality of work means lives are directly and immediately at stake. It would have been much worse in Matt’s grandfather's time. Perhaps that had something to do with his behavior. I assume he had a “you’ve gotta be hard to survive” kind of attitude. As a sensitive, empathetic person myself, I can say that this statement is true in most circumstances.

    DustinDustin15 dager siden
  • I said this in a clip video, but I want to say it here too. It seems like CR is on the ‘cancel’ side of the wheel a lot, and I don’t understand why. People get so upset over everything. It makes me stay out of the community, as much as I think I would want to be a part of it sometimes. I want to enjoy something without people ruining it, raging over nothing. That said, I am usually way behind on epodes and don’t engage too much with their other content (I want to, but there is only so much media I can watch). I tend to binge-watch for a week or two and get burned out on it. After a while, I will see a clip or an interview, reminding me to watch. That is when I realize that my mood has been a little low, and I haven’t written (mostly poetry and short stories) in a while. CR is a significant source of joy for me. The cast, and the characters they have created, touch my soul. Like all good tales, there is so much we can learn about our lives and ourselves through them. They inspire me to create my own worlds and tell my own stories. I also love Talks Machina. I sometimes forget or talk myself out of the idea that I am a writer; whether I am good or bad is irrelevant. There is something about listening to other creatives talk about their process that reminds me.

  • @Matt, I just want you to know that you have created something very special. I'm fairly new to Critical Role. In fact, I stumbled upon it by accident, after it was mentioned in an interview with Ashley Johnson, and after watching a few recent episodes, I was drawn in and decided to restart from the beginning of the second campaign. I truly fell in love with the show by Episode 2, upon meeting Oglen, the book-smelling gnomish proprietor of the Burnished Biblios. Since then, Critical Role has become an indispensable part of my life. It is something that I look forward to every day, like the comfort of a cozy fireplace that warms my soul from the cold winter shit-storm of 2020. The amount of love and creative energy that you have put into the show is truly remarkable. I absolutely adore what you and the rest of the cast of Critical Role accomplish every day, with everything that you do, Critical Role and beyond, and I hope that this comment finds you some day, and undoes just a little bit of the damage created by some hateful internet rando. And I hope you never feel like you're not doing enough, because what you're already doing in present already feels superhuman!

  • If you live in the first world,( The whole west) that is the epitome of privilege compared to the rest of the worlds. We should be thankful to God of opportunities, food ,shelter, health, relatively safety, entertainment. I pray for the poor souls who are angry of mental health issues, horrible childhoods good or bad that they may find a true and lasting peace in their hearts. All the answers start and come from within. I struggle with some issues only God knows and some friends who will help and hold me to actions and heart issues. Trying to live at peace with all men(people) Not everything is a hill one must defend or die on.

  • In his ancillary is one Brian W. Foster who I openly talked an inordinate amount of shit about on Twitter. I am not talking about a little shit I mean, I am right there on Thursday during their after show being banned by their mods on Twitch because I couldn't stop talking shit... and leaving gross and disgusting comments about him. I am bringing this up because I don't feel like its something I should hide, feel ashamed about: 100% and it still hurts... and I really wish I could give a more convincing answer as to why I do it. Even in my youth I was never that way towards anyone... I was a shut in, quiet, but articulate and I was very much bonded to D&D... and none of this excuses it because none of it explains why I did it. The closest I am at to an answer is: I used to use hate as a motivator... if I hated School I would attack it with a kind of abandon that frightened other students and teachers (like you've never seen a person answer a math question with as much fervor and animosity before... my hand was in the air before the question was even finished... and I always had a bad attitude about it)... I used to claim hate sustained me in the edgiest and cringiest way possible. But the truth is and in large part due to a vast amount of introspection and therapy (yes Therapy)... it was a form of self abuse... Hate wasn't saving me it was making me weaker and weaker and weaker... all of my most meaningful connections had been born in and built on antagonism. One of my closest friends was someone I met who had been verbally abusive towards me and I was abusive towards him... he has since eased up a lot and enough to where I don't internalize the destructive "jokes" anymore. Because that was what it had always been about... a deep loathing in myself... but back to the point I was making in which I was focused so much on this one guy... its because I wanted to be him... I hated myself and I hated him because I wanted to be him and be something that wasn't me. But it completely removed any sense of his humanity and it started to dawn on me the more I saw him outside of his usual programming, doing interview, and being interviewed and... really I had known nothing about him. I was out there lobbing hate at a stranger even with the hours of watching... he was still a stranger... and its an important thing to remember. No matter how many interview you watch... no matter how many hours of their programming and no matter how authentic they are being... you don't know them. I don't know Philip Defranco anymore than I know Matt Mercer, Brian W. Foster, Meryl Streep, Danny DeVito... any celebrity. All I am at the end of the day am a tourist in their lives and we all need to fucking stop trashing them for it. We can go to Paris but we don't know what its like to live there. We can have opinions and thoughts without trying to ruin someone or something for others. The last thing I want to note before I stop this massive block text is that... I will never stop bringing this up... I wish what I said wasn't as horrific as it was (I won't even give examples but if you can imagine the most unbelievably nasty thing I could say to you I probably said it at him). I was banned justly and because I learned from it... if you or someone you know acts half as bad as I did... you should know thats a sign of a far greater personal issue. And once you break free from it the guilt is profound. I pray to God, Brian W. Foster never saw or heard anything specific about what I said. It won't make me feel better if he didn't but it would make me feel worse if he did.

  • The crossover I didn't know I needed. I have been watching Phil longer than I've been a Critter, but they both have influenced my late 20's/early 30's equally and I wouldn't have retained/adopted certain beliefs on soooooooo many issues, without their unapologetic stances on the importance of one's integrity and empathy for your fellow man.

  • @1:25:55 - I totally get the interest in lock picking as a legitimate interest and hobby. I can’t remember how many years ago it was (more than 6, but less than 10...), but I remember at some point I came across a youtube video of a lockpicking competition that some hobbyist guild was holding, and thought it was interesting that this was a thing, and then went online to see if I could find some kind of intro to lockpicking PDFs or anything online and I found A HUGE PowerPoint slide detailing different types of locks, how they work, how they are picked, the key-types for them, etc. with animated gifs as well. At the time I ended up only being interested enough to figure out combo locks, but I ended up using it twice in life - once when an old high school band teacher was trying to get an old instrument out of an old locker but no longer had the combo for it, and a second time just to help my fire academy class do a training scenario in a storage container that was locked.

    • I didn't finish the video yet, but I stopped watching CR after a while of watching it. I really enjoyed it, but there are few things which bothered me. They were really political there (and because of that they gained a lot of following from the like minded people) and it seemed to me that they were catering to those people. I remember there was some drama back in the first campaign (before I started watching). People thought that Matt killed some gay NPC and were pissed. But they cater to that kind of people and when you give them on the finger they will bite your whole arm off. And I disliked that they were pushing their 21st century left leaning politics in the game and I stopped watching. One of the sensitive people told me that the show was never for me, so i guess I am not missing out...

  • I had put this on in the background while playing games and had to stop because it's a great conversation. So many people around me cannot converse and I love this.
