    I'm so tired of everyone complaining about how funhaus reacts to comments. This is the only group of youtubers that I know that are this good about interacting with commenters. I feel like everyone is just getting grumpy because they don't get the reply they want. I guess I have now joined the group that complains about the complainers...

    Thankfully, Adam, I never bought Soap shoes because of Sonic, or ever for that matter. I definately wanted to at the time, but never got around to it and eventually came to my senses. So don't worry. It wasn't too late. :P


    By the way, I personally love that you guys take the time to read the comments on the Funhaus site and listen to what the fans have to say on here alongside Youtube and Reddit.

    I'm not fond of being referred to as a "millennial." It has always felt like a derogatory term used by those in older generations to identify "those in THAT generation." A few months ago, I found a Youtube video by Hank Green of The Vlogbrothers that was a response to an article written by John Green, both titled "Why the Word "Millennial" Makes me Cringe". They raise some very interesting points that I, as a 23 year old "millennial", never really considered.

    EDIT: My links are not opening the items in a new tab, even though I checked the box telling it to do so. Just a heads up


    And as an aside, I was (fortunately) able to graduate from college without a load of debt. However, I was recently accepted into graduate school, where I won't be as fortunate. That's just how it goes sometimes, though I wish it wasn't like that.

    FunHaus is totally engaged with the audience, and I think that's a part of what RT as a company is about. Comments aren't necessarily meant to be a dialogue to content creators, though FH often takes it to that level. Keep doin' what you do! <3

    Thanks for using my comments guys it was so exciting to see that happen! Sorry I can't do words good so it was hard to read. I love you guys so much so next time i will write a much more articulate comment so Lawrence doesn't have to have a stroke trying to read it.

    lol, you guys realize that they can take comments seriously and address them within themselves and between each other *without* putting it in a video right? just because they dont go out of their way to say "good idea" or "bad idea" or "were already doing that", doesnt mean that they didnt read what you said and factor it into their decisions.


    i feel like funhaus being so engaged with their community (3 shows with some sort of fan conversation) has kinda spoiled the audience to a certain extent...

    I hope I didn't come off as demanding to you guys in my previous comment. I just noticed a trend and I wanted to address it. Thankfully I didn't see any comments on this fan art episode that attacked or insulted me, but I'm sure that it would've happened if it were Youtube. I certainly don't want comments first on the fan art show, but I tried to go off the knowledge Lawrence presented me. I definitely don't want you guys don't have to labor day and night over reading comments either, just a different perspective perhaps was what I intended to get across. You've shown me how heavily you deal with comments everyday, so I fully understand why you treat comments the way you do now. I'm just grateful you take the time to read comments from regular people like me, and that's why I even bother to comment on your channel. No other channel is as responsive or cares as much about the fans as you do. I love you guys, so keep rambling into that little camera. I'm in there watching you everyday.

    Going off of that "Millenial" comment... Every generation since (Literally, we have letters and writings) at least Ancient Greece has consisted of children demanding to be different and insisting that 15 years is enough time for the entire earth to have become some brave new world where a tumblr and a library card equals enlightenment, while their parents complain that they are lazy/morally bankrupt/not dying of assplague as their pantheon of deities demands. Nothing ever changes when it comes to that stuff, which means comedians and politicians will always have jobs.


    However, my main question and comment is this: as someone who casually attempts to be funny and creative but primarily makes pretty science charts, it has always been somewhat of an internal problem for me to criticize shows/companies like Funhaus because I have very little context for how much time and effort goes into each portion of the package that is a ~20 minute video. For instance, how much of a workday goes into simply trimming down and editing a video over shooting, or how much mental energy goes into community interaction and reading and addressing comments or viewers over adding the viewer-approved 37 pieces of flair to a demo disk and and its thumbnail to make it something that attracts the view counts that it does? I like to give content creators the benefit of the doubt when it comes to their decisions of course, but I would sincerely like to know just how much of your daily "energy" goes into the community, the viewing public, and your comments/feedback as compared to the other parts of producing your comment? What part of your day is the longest/most important/most taxing? You among most internet media groups that I know of seem to spend a huge amount of time and energy keeping a repertoire with your fans going, but there is far too often a point where a group (I could name several Youtube channels, webcomic artists, and others...) basically ride on their fanbase until the vocal push to change themselves makes them snap or lose themselves in the music. Could you help give us an idea of how important the "viewer interaction" and "taking feedback" part of your jobs is in keeping Funhaus going day-to-day?


    Tl;Dr: Funhaus once distracted me with laughter for so long one morning that I went to my first lab of the day wearing two pairs of boxers, so I looked like I either was wearing adult diapers under my pants, or had shit myself and the shit couldn't escape. Pretty sure that is why I didn't have more luck getting a date with someone in that class... That has nothing to do with the block of text above, but I thought that everyone should know.

    Not sure if this is the best idea but, are they able to add a check box next to everyone's comment? If checked it would show that so and so viewed the comment. The check box would be only available to the staff. Thoughts?

    This episode: "Let's put comments first next week. It'll be a really comment-heavy show."
    You can't win, guys. Sometimes people just don't like stuff.

    As a veteran, I hate when people say, "Well, joining the military is an option to pay for college."

    For less than 1% of Americans, sure. Whereas, on average, we have 3 million high school graduates a year. The military solution is no solution at all once you realize this is a nationwide issue. Also, average tuition for both public and private institutions has been skyrocketing since the turn of the millennium whereas average wages in nearly every tax bracket (Under 100k, naturally) have remained stagnate for nearly half a century. Adjusted for inflation of course.

    So no, Lawrence. It's not as simple as, "being smart about it." At this point, it's a matter of outsmarting an entire system stacked against you in every possible way. Yet these often insurmountable financial obstacles are ignored or written off as the world being as properly tough to live in as it should be. If low wages keep you from affording college in your quest for better wages... it's your fault and you're lazy. Come on, just be smart about it!

    Can't afford a loan because your income is too low? Better get used to it being that low ;) Oh, and here's the scraps from the wealthiest tables in America. Fight to the death for what little financial aid is available, poor people! Come aaaaaaaawn u gaiz. Just be smart about it!

    And taking financial aid into account screws over people of middling means. People who make too much to qualify but still don't want to be saddled with several good cars worth of debt... Well, you're screwed. Don't be silly, of COURSE tuition needs to be that high. Just be smart about it!

    You tens of millions of Americans struggling to achieve a dream you were promised would come true as long as you worked hard... you're all just STUPID and if you were SMARTER you wouldn't be so POOR! It's your own fault that the only jobs available to you don't pay enough to better your life. So sez Lawrence!

    Okay, so I got a little heated there, but don't get me wrong, I LOVE you guys. Still, L-man McDrunkensnark displayed an astounding lack of perspective throughout that entire conversation segment.

      That was very well articulated.This might not be as well-put, but I dislike when someone makes a comment akin to "cut corners." By this, I mean when folks tell you to go to community college, to join the military, to not go to college at all. In the society we live in today, it is harder than ever to be considered "qualified," as most employment in the United States has taken a turn toward underpaid trade/service labor. Finding a prosperous, well-paying, comfortable career anymore, or at least one that involves the skill that comes with a higher education, is incredibly competitive. I am an advocate of community college and I think that it is a viable way to save money on a higher education -- HOWEVER, community college has never looked overly appealing on an application for those intellect-based employment opportunities out there. A student of a community college is less likely to be hired than a Yale student and it will always be that way. It sucks, but it's how employers make their decisions when the pool gets really competitive. Those same employers won't even consider you if you don't have any college experience under your belt, which is why it always aggravates me when I'm told that college is not necessary. Maybe it isn't for Rooster Teeth employees or other internet personalities. Maybe it's not necessary for entertainers of any capacity. But for the rest of us, a lack of college is like a sentence to a life of constant struggle. And I think what you said about the military thing was pretty spot-on. It's just frustrating to be told constantly that you just need to be "smart" about this stuff when there are so many factors working against you, and so many lurking opportunities to fall of the rails.

    So hear me out here. This is a pretty loose idea, but what if you separated out the Kormberts show and fan art again? I know you guys had a fan art show and you also had the FAQ podcast and neither were terribly successful, but you've gained some more fans and people are more comfortable with your content now. I personally am a really big fan of the fan show even if I don't watch the Podcast usually, but I think both aspects could benefit from more time. So to kind of rope the thought in, maybe make the fan show a more serious style comment show, in an FAQ-cast school of thought, and then bring back the fan art show? I'm not sure what you could do for the fan art show exactly, I like the laid back appreciation aspect of it now (but that might not be able to stand on it's own), and the old format of goofy yelling is being taken by the actual comment show, so you'd need another shtick.

    I'm not speaking for all young people here, if anything my view is slightly flawed because it is a bit of a blanket statement. But to refute, connectivity and collaboration are more common, but really it is the notion that we as a generation have been ganged up against. It is less about me vs. they and more "how can we change our surroundings to positively affect us and others." I know there are alternatives to college, (which I want to do, I don't feel as if I have to do it) but they themselves have their flaws. Sorry if y'all took it as an attack those are just my thoughts on manifestation of intergenerational conflict theory. (yes I'm citing Das Kapital I'm pretentious)

    I am 19 years old and i'm working while taking full hours at a community college. After two years I will still have 0 debt to school, and have a degree that I can use in my future. It is not impossible to go to school and work as a millennial.

    I think the comments at the beginning might work, but I don't think you guys should feel forced to try that based on one person's suggestion. Most of us are going to watch and enjoy the fan show regardless. I personally watch to see all the great art I may have missed on twitter & reddit, but I do also enjoy hearing/reading the comments of my fellow fans and listening to your responses, which I find (contrary to popular belief?) to be rather insightful and thoughtful in most cases. tl;dr: keep doin' you.

    As a current college student and roommate with a current ROTC (army college program) student getting a college education without falling under massive amount of debt is not hard to avoid. The ROTC program is rigorous but if you want to get one of their specified degrees without debt it's a no-brainer (friend is in civil engineering). The cultural norm is that you have to go to school directly after high school or going to a community college is beneath you is also the cause of some debt problems as well, college isn't going anywhere. You are going to amass some debt duh but you are forgetting that you are investing in yourself here. Take online courses. If you want to go to a university don't go thinking that you will figure it out there, some people can, those people most likely have the money to so. Be responsible and know what you want to do before jumping into a degree down the road you might not like (I know what that is like).


    That being said this might make people angry but whatever. I don't believe that American Individuality was lost in 19XX, the ability to connect (the fucking internet and cheaper transportation) gave the community the ability to share information at such a fast rate that we realized we are more similar than people think. Between Millennials and baby boomers the only difference is that we have a greater perspective on the world that they did at the time (internet). That's it.

    Just to talk about what Lawrence said in the video about higher education:


    "It's possible to get through college without amassing debt, you just have to work your ass off and apply for some loans and go to community college. Like, you can be smart. Taking on a massive student loan is not default. "Oh, I could never join the military" Fuck that, yes you can if you want a college education."

    Any European citizen can study at a Danish university without having to pay tuition fees, although they will still have to pay for the cost of living. To attend Harvard, one of the top five universities in the world (number two according to this site) the total expense combined was estimated at between $65,000 and $70,000. To attend Cambridge, also one of the top five universities in the world (and number three according to the same source), the grand total was estimated at around £17,500 (the £9,000 per year tuition plus the living expenses shown), which is more or less $25,000. What is the quantitative difference between the quality of the education provided between a Danish university, Harvard and Cambridge? And do you think the answer to that question might be why taking on a student loan is default?

    I really like that you guys read all the comments and try to reply to as many as you can but I hate seeing you guys bow down to what one user says when thousands of others love what you do no matter how you do it. changing your format because one whiny baby doesn't think you are taking comments seriously in the FAN ART show is a bit ridiculous, I know you guys are trying to please everyone (even when they say that you only reply to "silly" comments which just isn't true) but sometimes that just doesn't work, will you start putting fan art in the comments show next?!


    That being said, I'll never stop watching.

    Ahhhh okay I totally disagree with noelmurray15's comment but like... It is /not/ that easy to get through college without amassing debt. I know that you're just gonna say "Get a job" and "apply for scholarships" but the fact of the matter is that neither of those things are as simple as they seem to you. The cost of college has risen hilariously disproportionally to the rise of minimum wage. If I hadn't taken out loans, I would have needed to work a full time job at $8 an hour as well as a part time job in order to cover tuition and books. That would have been literally physically impossible while I was taking classes, there were not enough hours in the day. I applied for a lot of scholarships and only got a few of them, less than $2000 in total per year. Also, the military recently cut most of their funding for college. I have a ton of friends who joined the military immediately out of high school so that they could pay for college, only to find out a few years later that it was no longer an option. Not to mention a lot of people /can't/ join the military.


    As for college not being necessary? It's hard finding a job /with/ a degree, let alone without one. And I know, "If you just work hard and try your best it'll all work out" accept that it doesn't. It did for you, and that's awesome, but there is a massive amount of luck involved in becoming successful and that is becoming increasingly true as time goes on. The point isn't that success is impossible for "millennials" it's that it's harder for millennials than it was for our parents, but a lot of older people, including older millennials like you guys, act like nothing has changed and we're just whining a lot because we have to work hard.


    That being said, I do think that a lot of millennials have a sort of complex about being the most liberal and the most underprivileged and they also kind of generalize their circumstances to all millennials even though that isn't really appropriate or necessary. But anyway. Yeah.
