A lot."'' One man. One name. (Well, two...) One hundred fifty gigabytes of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Two terabytes of Christmas Music. Many innocent strawberries... Jason "[=LordKaT=]" Pullara, is a citizen of New York City who has been online forever. It is believed that he is one of the four Internet gods. He is the creator and owner of [=LordKaT=].com, hosting content produced since his days of making videos for Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses (even before joining the crew). His primary contribution to the site was Until We Win, where he gave tips on how to beat legendarily difficult video games like ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' without cheating. In early 2011 Jason ended UWW and announced that he was leaving TGWTG, both for the same reasons (to work full time with his [=JustinTV=] livestream and because scripting and filming were always his least favorite parts of the creative process). He left on good terms, and for a time was an official TGWTG affiliate as well as remaining friends with many of its members. Jason now live-casts on a stream called "[[http://www.lordkat.com/live/ [=LordKaT=] Live!]]" This livestream has brought together numerous personalities from TGWTG, along with some of his best friends both from inside and outside the IRC chat. As LordKat has gained new viewership via promotions such as the stream, so as he's done for the others who visit the stream; several more stream hosters have popped up as a response to this, including [[WebVideo/YouCanPlayThis JewWario]], Hope Within Chaos, WebVideo/JesuOtaku, and WebVideo/ObscurusLupa. Especially popular are the DungeonsAndDragons sessions: SpoonysCampaign was played on the stream as is one with [[{{WyrmwickCampaign}} Lordkat]] as DM. In addition, the Eriadne Campaign has joined the stream, with [=AionoftheBlades=] as DM. Some of the shows on [=LordKat=]'s livestream include: * '''This Week In Games''' and '''Indie Game of the Week''': Recorded every Saturday, Jason and Skitch (and recurring guest MarzGurl) discuss current events in the gaming world and nominate a pick for Indie Game of the Week (which used to be a feature of [=TWiG=] before being budded off into its own show). * '''Turducken is Tasty''': Recorded every Wednesday, Jason, RolloT, ShanePhallam, and YRulerOfTime Freeman discuss the NFL, both games and current events, usually discussing last week's games and trying to predict the outcome of next week's. It went on hiatus due to the NFL lockout but has since come back, and Jason has expressed interest in making it a regular show by expanding the focus to other sports. * '''WyrmwickCampaign''': Played (almost) every weekend, this is Jason's ''DungeonsAndDragons'' game. Between the colorful personalities of the players and Jason's own [[IndyPloy improvisational]] [[DungeonMaster DM]] style, HilarityEnsues. For several weeks, Jason and the players hosted '''That Tabletop Show''' where they recap past events, answer questions from viewers, and more, until it was decided there was insufficient content to maintain a weekly show and it was placed on hiatus. * '''Eriadne Campaign''': Played every Wednesday, this a ''DungeonsAndDragons'' campaign run by [=AionoftheBlades=] and featuring one of Jason's friends, [=SonikGav=]. Originally hosted on a different streaming site, it was moved to LordKat's stream after running into technical issues. Since then, Jason himself has joined (and subsequently departed) the campaign as a Shade Executioner named Blackwood. While events in Eriadne are not discussed in That Tabletop Show, [=AionoftheBlades=] does weekly text-based recaps of sessions to keep viewers informed and up to speed. * '''Tuesday Tech Talk''': [[CaptainObvious Recorded every Tuesday]] at 7:00 PM EST, Jason and [[WebVideo/WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou Nash]] discuss non-video game technology, both software and hardware. * '''How To Do It''': A self-help tech show hosted by Jason and Nash, also recorded on Tuesdays. The show focuses on helping people solve technical issues ranging from hardware problems to finding the best equipment money can buy. * '''Conduct Unbecoming''': A military podcast with CriticalMarine and ChaosD1. * '''Weekly Manga Recap''': A manga podcast starring RolloT and YRulerOfTime, and occasionally featuring a guest commentator. * '''Until We Win''': [=LordKat=] resurrected the series as a weekly competition. Every Friday afternoon, Jason plays a difficult game without using cheats or save-states, trying to reach the end or get the highest score. Members of the site are then challenged to play the game and record their progress. * '''WAT''': Hosted by Jason and co-hosted by chat regular Final_Freek, this late-night series showcases the most bizarre, obscure, and deranged internet videos from around the world. Was recorded every Friday at Midnight, but in early June Jason killed the show after getting frustrated by constant comparisons of ''Tosh.0'', Sean Fausz's "Epic Fail", and {{Spoony}}'s short-lived "Experience Bij". A rather extensive Wiki can be found [[http://www.lordkat.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page here]]. Page under construction. ---- !![=LordKaT=] provides examples of: * AbortedArc: Jason set up a ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' challenge between the [=LordKat=] Mafia and TeamFourStar, but TFS kept having to reschedule and eventually just said they couldn't make time for it. * {{Angrish}}: His reaction to the [[NoEnding "ending"]] of ''ComicBook/ChakanTheForeverMan''. ** Playing ''Clive Barker's Jericho''. ** VideoGame/Left4Dead2. It doesn't matter what mode, campaign or mutation it is, angrish will flow from Jason's mouth at some point. * AnticlimaxBoss: A particular pet peeve of Lordkat's, seen in ''VideoGame/{{Strider}}'' for example. * BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor[=/=]ExactWords: Apparently, Lordkat has received complaints from both Twitch TV streamers and admins for running non-video game content on his stream. In response, he's started running ''ProgressQuest'' any time he's away from his computer (such as when he's asleep or getting food). * BerserkButton: ** His neighbors. More than once Jason has blown several gaskets over their behaviour... ** The neighborhood ice cream truck. It has a habit of interrupting Jason's D&D sessions by blaring its music outside his window (and in fact can be heard in the background of many recordings). This became a running joke during the WyrmwickCampaign, such that the truck even made it into some of the campaign's fan art. ** '''NEVER, EVER''' gift Jason guest passes on Steam. He will never play them because 95% of the time the passes are to games LordKat does not like and Jason honestly believes that you are wasting your money on the passes. A Steam user by the name of Major Fracture gifted Jason the same game (Counter Strike: Source, a game Jason does not like at all) multiple times in a week forcing him to erase his Steam friends list in absolute rage. ** Unless it's related to the fan community and/or you have Jason's explicit permission, don't even ''think'' of "e-begging" (asking for money) on his stream; even when done after hours, this will automatically result in a permanent ban. Promoting your own work (websites, podcasts, artwork, etc.) is allowed as long as you don't spam the chat with it. ** Don't insult or disrespect his friends and guests. See PapaWolf below. * BrooklynRage: Mostly averted (Jason's a pretty easy-going guy), though it does rear its head on occasion. See the entries under BerserkButton and UnstoppableRage. * BuffySpeak: Chat moderator and video highlighter Bubblefish got his name from Big Fazeek's (see below) name for a puffer fish. * ButtMonkey: Chat regular Sable gets teased a lot, but it's all in good fun. Mooders as well. * CatchPhrase: ** "Today we're playing (insert game here)... [[TitleDrop until we win]]." ** "You're going to die. ''A lot''." ** "The only advice I can give you is to play the ''hell'' out of this level." ** "Keep it up, and eventually..." ''*shows the game's outro*'' * ChallengeGamer * DespairEventHorizon: During ''[[WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob Brad Tries Durian Fruit]]'', LordKaT lamented on how Brad was stepping into his territory, and how he has his hot wife join him, and was becoming more popular, while all LordKat has is a stuffed cow. He proceeds to hang himself with an HDMI cord. * {{Determinator}}: He will not stop until he wins. For instance, he worked on ''Bloodwings: Pumpkinhead's Revenge'' for more than half a year, only managing it and doing a video on it (with [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]], no less) after months of work. ** He actually didn't beat it - they took the footage of a guy who did beat it's youtube page. LordKat tried but deemed it too confusing. The guy who did it on youtube had the game for years, and beat it only through brute force of trying absolutely everything. ** The person whose footage they used reasoned that whether or not Spoony and LordKat did play it, the video would be exactly the same. * FanDisservice: LordKat dancing shirtless to Erasure's Always. * FateWorseThanDeath: His punishment for losing to 8-Bit Mickey at ''Robot Unicorn Attack''? A ''Spooning With Spoony'' cameo. * FollowTheLeader: A lot of the games he beats (as he lampshades in the introductions) are requested by his fans because WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd became memorably infuriated by them. On one occasion he beat WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's own choice of worst game, ''Bebe's Kids'', and the Nostalgia Critic showed up to complain that Lordkat would make him look pathetic by beating it. ** He also beat ''TheAdventuresOfBayouBilly'' because it was one of [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony's]] first videos (even calling it "Spoony's impossible game"), and tried to do ''{{Wolverine}}: Adamantium Rage'', but he confessed to [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] that after spending two days straight trying to get past it, he gave up and did an easier game. * ForeignQueasine: The entire point of the segment "[=LordKat=] Eats". Some of the more unique delicacies sampled have included [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Atji2PADdVA Bull Penis]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YwbH_OHeC8 Pig's Blood]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekW2QWnob8I Canned Haggis]]. * {{Foreshadowing}}: At the end of each episode he'll usually play music from the next game to be featured. * GenderBlenderName: As Jason explains it, "[=LordKat=]" originates from the very start of his Internet "career": when he was young, he chose the screen name "Kat" because he thought it was cool, but added the "Lord" when he learned that "Kat" is a feminine name (usually short for Kathleen and such). * GoodHairEvilHair: The official Wiki uses the Trustworthiness of Beards scale (the current page image for this trope) to rate individuals. Jason ranks a Goatee, which is the third most trustworthy. * HeroicBSOD: In ''VideoGame/SilverSurfer'', after [[spoiler: he learns that after Hard Mode there is Second Quest.]] ** A letter sent in to Dr. 8 Bit Love also had this effect, as the writer described himself and his girlfriend as "[[FinalFantasy a Red Mage type and a White Mage type]]" respectively, and Jason (as well as everyone in the Skype call '''and''' the live chat) struggled to figure out what the hell it meant. * InternetBackdraft: He told [[TheSpoonyOne Spoony]] to kill himself with his brother's gun. He apologized to his fans and friends for his unprofessionalism in his next live call in show, if not to spoony for the comment. * ItAmusedMe: Jason once posted a very nasty blog attacking Let's Players and people who stream video games. Hours later, he posted on twitter that it was done deliberately to troll and see how many angry replies he'd get. He did sincerely mean the main subject of the blog though, that Bill S.978 wouldn't have any real impact if it passed and people are overreacting. * KillItWithFire: Jason's regular approach to playing VideoGame/TeamFortress2 and VideoGame/Left4Dead2. ** Also, his character Grae in SpoonysCampaign regularly used ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny flaming bedrolls]]'' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny as a combat tactic.]] * LetsPlay: Jason has done a couple, including ''SpaceQuest'' (games 2 and 3) and ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''. ** And the entire ''{{Thief}}'' series, Jason being a huge fan and admitting to have used it for inspiration for Wyrmwick. * LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: [=LordKat=] did reveal a major reason for leaving TGWTG on his livestream shortly after it happened, but refuses to bring it up in later discussions (as seen in an interview with MoonhawkStudiosPresents) because he doesn't want people to think he's denigrating his former co-workers. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Out of respect for his wishes, that reasoning shouldn't be revealed by anyone else, either.]] ** A more recent example is when Jason was caught having... errr... [[ADateWithRosiePalms A Date With Rosie Palms]] while his livestream microphone was on. Nash's reaction was hilarious. * NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Two words... Mr. Chappy. * NintendoHard: The whole point of ''Until We Win''. * OhCrap: A hilarious version that ended his Bayou Billy UWW video. When he hears the NES Battletoads theme song ... -->'''Jason''': "Oh ''God.''" (faces the camera with a slackjawed expression on his face, then the screen cuts to empty credits) "Oh, God, no." ("Next week: Battletoads" appears on the screen) "Aww, hell." * PapaWolf: Jason is ''fiercely'' defensive of those he considers his friends. It's not unusual for him to ban people from his livestream for harassing or disrespecting his internet "family", especially his former [=TGWTG=] co-workers. (This even applies to ''other'' employees of [=TGWTG=].) * PersonAsVerb: "Moodersing It", which means [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere abandoning your team]] in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' and failing. Related is "Final Freeking It", which means leaving your team (usually with permission) and succeeding. * PhraseCatcher: "Fuck you [[ButtMonkey Sable]]". Sometimes with "[[http://www.Fuckyousable.com Dot Com]]" tacked on the end. * PrecisionFStrike: Jason likes to swear a lot, but there's one example that really stands out. The ending to ''The Guardian Legend'' on the NES, a game he considered to be harder than ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' that paid off with a horribly short ending. -->"...FUCK THAT ENDING!" * {{Ragequit}}: There's a reason Jason calls it "[[VideoGame/Left4Dead Left 4 Mad]]", usually to do with incompetent teammates. He's actually gotten frustrated enough with the game that he's uninstalled it, only to put it back on later after cooling off. * RealMenWearPink: As demonstrated on his Livestream, Jason has an unexpected fondness for Broadway showtunes. (His favorite musicals are ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' and ''Theatre/LesMiserables''.) ** He also enjoys classical music. ** Actually, that makes him seem more SophisticatedAsHell. * RefugeInAudacity * {{Revival}}: "Until We Win", twice. First, some time after ending it, [=LordKat=] turned it into an open-source project, where people could make their own episodes. The second time, he turned it into a live weekly series. * RunningGag: Starting with the ''DragonballEvolution'' where LK exhibits not-so-EroticEating, his cameos in other peoples' videos tend to involve some degree of {{Squick}}. In fact, his very last contribution to TGWTG before leaving the site was a cameo in the team ''TheLastAirbender'' review, where he appears at the door shirtless, holding a banana, and grinning suggestively before Y Ruler of Time slams the door in his face. ** And then immediately after Y closes the door, a sheep can be heard *bawwing* in the background; followed by a disappointed Lordkat saying *aww* ** More recently, and probably unintentional, LordKaT getting startled by Rollo_T or somebody else in the call abruptly playing the Monday Night Football theme. * SanitySlippageSong: "Cotton-Eyed Joe", "They're Coming to Take Me Away". * [[{{Yonkoma}} Sankoma]]: [[http://www.lordkat.com/wiki/index.php/Comicu Comicu]], by LKM artist Ginky. * ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: RolloT, as evidenced in many games of ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' where he runs into a Tank and gets beaten. * SelfImposedChallenge: Beating the game without using any external cheats--no GameGenie, no save states on an {{emulator}}. Built-in cheats like the KonamiCode or a WarpZone are fine. ** Well, not exactly: he realized that he needed to finish the games faster to put them up on TGWTG. * SequelHook: Most of his videos end with a cryptic hint at what the next game will be. * SitcomArchNemesis: Big Fazeek, formerly of PSN's ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tester The Tester]]''. He was brought on the stream when other members of the show's cast (including TGWTG's own 8-Bit Mickey) complained about how much of a jerk he was. Jason tried to play moderator, but eventually got sick of Fazeek's egotistical bullshitting, [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech told him off in epic fashion]], and banned him from the stream. Fazeek still harasses Jason on occasion, while Jason (and the stream's inhabitants) mostly just ignore him or laugh at his antics. * ThatOnePlayer * UnknownRival: Big Fazeek, in a sense; going on a year after Hatedick he still fixates on [=LordKat=], while Jason, for his part, doesn't give a damn and only discusses the guy when someone else brings him up (as Nash did when he pointed out that Fazeek was trying to find him at New York Comic Con 2011). * UnstoppableRage: ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' induced this in him, and he once went off on a rant about how [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd certain people]] blame LJN for NES licensed games, when in reality they were just the marketer and many of them were in fact made by fan favourite company Rare. * UnusualEuphemism: During a game of ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'', [=RolloT=] used "Foof!" as a BattleCry (playing off of Jason's earlier "Foom!"). Someone looked "foof" up on UrbanDictionary and learned that it's a synonym for the vagina, resulting in its entering the LK Mafia's lexicon. * AWinnerIsYou: He always segues from talking about how to beat the last boss to showing the game's ending, which is often --especially with NES games--one of these, annoying him. * WeaponOfChoice: In ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' and ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'': ** GrenadeLauncher / ThrowDownTheBomblet: When playing as the Demoman (the character class Jason plays as the most) Jason uses the default grenade launcher and the Ullapool Caber (i.e., the potato masher-shaped grenade that the Demoman uses as a melee weapon). In VideoGame/Left4Dead2, expect Jason to either grab a Molotov Cocktail or a Pipe Bomb and use them. ** [[FireBreathingWeapon Flamethrower]]: When playing as the Pyro, the second-most played class by Jason. ** SniperRifle: Jason tends to use this weapon a lot in VideoGame/Left4Dead2, passing over most other Tier 2 weapons for this weapon. It has made for a number of awesome long-distance saves from Jockeys or hordes or whatever the game throws at him. ** Automatic Rifles: When Jason decides to not use a sniper rifle in VideoGame/Left4Dead2 (or it doesn't spawn), he defers to either the AK-47 or the Desert Rifle. Sometimes, he uses the M16, but not often. * WordSaladLyrics: Jason has a habit of breaking into song on his livestream whenever the mood strikes him. Naturally, this has resulted in some rather... ''unusual'' compositions. ----

He did sincerely mean the main subject of the blog though, that Bill S.978 wouldn't have any real impact if it passed and people are overreacting. * KillItWithFire: Jason's regular approach to playing VideoGame/TeamFortress2 and VideoGame/Left4Dead2. ** Also, his character Grae in SpoonysCampaign regularly used ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny flaming bedrolls]]'' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny as a combat tactic.]] * LetsPlay: Jason has done a couple, including ''SpaceQuest'' (games 2 and 3) and ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''. ** And the entire ''{{Thief}}'' series, Jason being a huge fan and admitting to have used it for inspiration for Wyrmwick. * LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: [=LordKat=] did reveal a major reason for leaving TGWTG on his livestream shortly after it happened, but refuses to bring it up in later discussions (as seen in an interview with MoonhawkStudiosPresents) because he doesn't want people to think he's denigrating his former co-workers. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Out of respect for his wishes, that reasoning shouldn't be revealed by anyone else, either.]] ** A more recent example is when Jason was caught having... errr... [[ADateWithRosiePalms A Date With Rosie Palms]] while his livestream microphone was on. Nash's reaction was hilarious. * NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Two words... Mr. Chappy. * NintendoHard: The whole point of ''Until We Win''. * OhCrap: A hilarious version that ended his Bayou Billy UWW video. When he hears the NES Battletoads theme song ... -->'''Jason''': "Oh ''God.''" (faces the camera with a slackjawed expression on his face, then the screen cuts to empty credits) "Oh, God, no." ("Next week: Battletoads" appears on the screen) "Aww, hell." * PapaWolf: Jason is ''fiercely'' defensive of those he considers his friends. It's not unusual for him to ban people from his livestream for harassing or disrespecting his internet "family", especially his former [=TGWTG=] co-workers. (This even applies to ''other'' employees of [=TGWTG=].) * PersonAsVerb: "Moodersing It", which means [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere abandoning your team]] in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' and failing. Related is "Final Freeking It", which means leaving your team (usually with permission) and succeeding. * PhraseCatcher: "Fuck you [[ButtMonkey Sable]]". Sometimes with "[[http://www.Fuckyousable.com Dot Com]]" tacked on the end. * PrecisionFStrike: Jason likes to swear a lot, but there's one example that really stands out. The ending to ''The Guardian Legend'' on the NES, a game he considered to be harder than ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' that paid off with a horribly short ending. -->"...FUCK THAT ENDING!" * {{Ragequit}}: There's a reason Jason calls it "[[VideoGame/Left4Dead Left 4 Mad]]", usually to do with incompetent teammates. He's actually gotten frustrated enough with the game that he's uninstalled it, only to put it back on later after cooling off. * RealMenWearPink: As demonstrated on his Livestream, Jason has an unexpected fondness for Broadway showtunes. (His favorite musicals are ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' and ''Theatre/LesMiserables''.) ** He also enjoys classical music. ** Actually, that makes him seem more SophisticatedAsHell. * RefugeInAudacity * {{Revival}}: "Until We Win", twice. First, some time after ending it, [=LordKat=] turned it into an open-source project, where people could make their own episodes. The second time, he turned it into a live weekly series. * RunningGag: Starting with the ''DragonballEvolution'' where LK exhibits not-so-EroticEating, his cameos in other peoples' videos tend to involve some degree of {{Squick}}. In fact, his very last contribution to TGWTG before leaving the site was a cameo in the team ''TheLastAirbender'' review, where he appears at the door shirtless, holding a banana, and grinning suggestively before Y Ruler of Time slams the door in his face. ** And then immediately after Y closes the door, a sheep can be heard *bawwing* in the background; followed by a disappointed Lordkat saying *aww* ** More recently, and probably unintentional, LordKaT getting startled by Rollo_T or somebody else in the call abruptly playing the Monday Night Football theme. * SanitySlippageSong: "Cotton-Eyed Joe", "They're Coming to Take Me Away". * [[{{Yonkoma}} Sankoma]]: [[http://www.lordkat.com/wiki/index.php/Comicu Comicu]], by LKM artist Ginky. * ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: RolloT, as evidenced in many games of ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'' where he runs into a Tank and gets beaten. * SelfImposedChallenge: Beating the game without using any external cheats--no GameGenie, no save states on an {{emulator}}. Built-in cheats like the KonamiCode or a WarpZone are fine. ** Well, not exactly: he realized that he needed to finish the games faster to put them up on TGWTG. * SequelHook: Most of his videos end with a cryptic hint at what the next game will be. * SitcomArchNemesis: Big Fazeek, formerly of PSN's ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tester The Tester]]''. He was brought on the stream when other members of the show's cast (including TGWTG's own 8-Bit Mickey) complained about how much of a jerk he was. Jason tried to play moderator, but eventually got sick of Fazeek's egotistical bullshitting, [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech told him off in epic fashion]], and banned him from the stream. Fazeek still harasses Jason on occasion, while Jason (and the stream's inhabitants) mostly just ignore him or laugh at his antics. * ThatOnePlayer * UnknownRival: Big Fazeek, in a sense; going on a year after Hatedick he still fixates on [=LordKat=], while Jason, for his part, doesn't give a damn and only discusses the guy when someone else brings him up (as Nash did when he pointed out that Fazeek was trying to find him at New York Comic Con 2011). * UnstoppableRage: ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' induced this in him, and he once went off on a rant about how [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd certain people]] blame LJN for NES licensed games, when in reality they were just the marketer and many of them were in fact made by fan favourite company Rare. * UnusualEuphemism: During a game of ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'', [=RolloT=] used "Foof!" as a BattleCry (playing off of Jason's earlier "Foom!"). Someone looked "foof" up on UrbanDictionary and learned that it's a synonym for the vagina, resulting in its entering the LK Mafia's lexicon. * AWinnerIsYou: He always segues from talking about how to beat the last boss to showing the game's ending, which is often --especially with NES games--one of these, annoying him. * WeaponOfChoice: In ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' and ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'': ** GrenadeLauncher / ThrowDownTheBomblet: When playing as the Demoman (the character class Jason plays as the most) Jason uses the default grenade launcher and the Ullapool Caber (i.e., the potato masher-shaped grenade that the Demoman uses as a melee weapon). In VideoGame/Left4Dead2, expect Jason to either grab a Molotov Cocktail or a Pipe Bomb and use them. ** [[FireBreathingWeapon Flamethrower]]: When playing as the Pyro, the second-most played class by Jason. ** SniperRifle: Jason tends to use this weapon a lot in VideoGame/Left4Dead2, passing over most other Tier 2 weapons for this weapon. It has made for a number of awesome long-distance saves from Jockeys or hordes or whatever the game throws at him. ** Automatic Rifles: When Jason decides to not use a sniper rifle in VideoGame/Left4Dead2 (or it doesn't spawn), he defers to either the AK-47 or the Desert Rifle. Sometimes, he uses the M16, but not often. * WordSaladLyrics: Jason has a habit of breaking into song on his livestream whenever the mood strikes him. Naturally, this has resulted in some rather... ''unusual'' compositions. ----[[redirect:Creator/LordKaT]]

He is the creator and owner of [=LordKaT=].com, hosting content produced since his days of making videos for Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses (even before joining the crew). His primary contribution to the site was Until We Win, where he gave tips on how to beat legendarily difficult video games like ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' without cheating. In early 2011 Jason ended UWW and announced that he was leaving TGWTG, both for the same reasons (to work full time with his [=JustinTV=] livestream and because scripting and filming were always his least favorite parts of the creative process). He left on good terms, and is an official TGWTG affiliate as well as remaining friends with many of its members.

Looks like misuse
* {{Troll}}: Jason has had to deal with complaints from both Twitch TV content providers and administrators for various reasons; the admins mostly complain because he runs more than just video game content.
