I think sam is the least funny of the 3 MDE guys.

Sam is very amusing, but not in the way he intended. He's the thirty-something version of A-log; jobless, homeless, addicted to video games, and kinda dirty looking, BUT HEY he's a professional troll so that means he's really one of the cool kids... right? Like Nick Bravo pretending to be Sean Baby or something.

His ED article (which he seems to have written himself) sums up his own self-delusions quite nicely.

EvilHomer
Here is a sample quote from said ED article:

"You can think of MDE as a lawless biker gang of funny-boys united by their burning hatred of consumerism who live to write and film mind-fuck wisdom bombs that slice up and dismember the belief systems of 9-5 Wal-Mart drones like tactical bayonets mounted on the AK-47 of insanity. MDE is the most widely used finishing attack in the Dragon Ball series, and is Goku's signature attack. MDE is a homeless man shitting in a parking lot and using it to write biblical quotes on the windshields of brand new Scion tC's. "


Bear in mind that this was written by someone in their thirties.

He's a completely unlikable slug. He also likes to make AIDS jokes, which isn't funny and is in especially bad taste.

I also love this guy.

By the way, "Funding Suspended" means Kickstarter itself cancelled the project, not Sam.

Sam's behavior before and during Dark Skyes convinced me he's an aging never-was who peaked with slapping books out kids' hands in high school, and somehow managed to make it to his 30s convinced the world runs on the same Jock vs. Nerd dynamic he mastered during Phys Ed.

This video didn't do anything to change that opinion.
EvilHomer
So why'd it get suspended? Was this fallout from Dark Skyes, the result of something else Sam did, or a false flag inside job trying to make himself seem more relevant than he actually is?

It was a Kickstarter to fund a project to make fun of Kickstarter, run by a dude who thinks caring about the environment/society/black people is mockworthy and supported by people whose comments on the page included "Kickstarter is garbage" and "white pride worldwide."

It wasn't technically against the rules, but KS can suspend your project if they don't like the face you make when you come if they want to. Sam Hyde being a shit person with shit fans was probably all the reason they needed.

Kickstarter is plenty fucking ridiculous at times, and there are a ton of awful, pointless projects on there right now. But Sam's not clever enough to capitalize on anything other than screaming "kike" and calling girls fat.

EvilHomer
Well, that's kinda mean of Kickstarter, if people want to pay this guy to make sexist jokes, I guess that's their business. But on the positive side, he didn't appear to be anywhere near his funding goals in the first place, so I guess nature is just sorting itself out.

Sort of a change of subject here, but does anyone have any advice on how to get started with Kickstarter? A friend of mine just finished a children's book and he needs money to cover printing costs; he's old and computer illiterate, so I offered to help him set up a Kickstarter page. His book is done and he only wants a few hundred dollars, so I figure, shit, with douchebags getting tens of thousands of dollars for bullshit off of Kickstarter, surely an elderly veteran who's won a few awards for his Native American artwork can get a nice children's book published?

Like MDE and Sam Hyde in general, but I think he's really riding the professional troll thing to a point where it will probably seriously hurt his chances at a future career in comedy, at least on the level I think they want to go to. Irony is funny up to a point, but now he's very close to that edge of being a prisoner to it.

I really liked the thing he did a few years ago where he lectured at a regional anime convention and when the context is right some of his standup video s can be pretty great, but I feel like a year or two ago it started to all get really, really redundant.

I've just recently heard of this guy, but everything I've seen about him fills me with high levels of contempt, with trace elements of pity just barely detectable.
