Noah Antwiler - the Spoonyone - is a gifted comedian and internet reviewer. He's dedicated to his role as an entertainer, makes high quality and thoroughly enjoyable reviews and vlogs, is constantly improving his work, and looks over his own past reviews to see what he needs to improve on. He is also constantly under the internet's microscope. His personality and character is put to question as often as the content of his work! No other internet reviewer gets this much speculation and cries of outrage laid at their doorstep. Maybe it's that although he ignores a large portion of trolls and dissidents, he does not suffer mass insults or gross stupidity lightly and he will call his fans out on it. Aggressively. He calls himself an asshole as he does this, and I wouldn't argue with that. But although I don't agree with his thick-skinned attitude or the way he acts, his hard-lining is never malicious or grudge-bearing. It's pretty much a matter of giving as good as he gets and moving on, no hard feelings attached. Even though he shouts and raves at his fans in frustration... he also treasures them, talks to them with great familiarity and has even called them "a great fanbase." And that's the thing. You watch hours of vlogs and reviews - both IC and OOC - and you're watching a thoughtful, open-minded and a good if not generally nice guy whose angry rants will make you laugh. When he's not being an intentionally defensive asshole on Skype/chatrooms - asserting that he's unequivocally right and laying on superiority for good measure - he'll explain his thoughts in a way that is engaging and entertaining to watch. On all accounts, he's fun to work with and to be around, where the only problem is if you legitimately piss him off (some may be able to relate). He's just a guy, more complex than a couple of labels or quick impressions. Give him a break from inspection now, maybe? I'm not trying to defend him - he's definitely said things I don't agree with or I think are idiotic. However, after 4 years of watching the man this is my conclusive review/summary of him and his work. A clever, innovative and always improving comedian whose reviews/vlogs are definitely worth watching (I highly recommend them), and a good guy who will be an asshole if he feels it's needed.
