Think you know what is true? Think you’re always talking to allies/good people/actual people?

Hoo boy. Have I got news for you.

UPDATE: Ah shit I misspoke on stream saying ActBlue & WinRed were the “same company” when I meant to say they serve the same big data masters. Woops. That’s live streams for ya but here’s my correction… I hadn’t had coffee and the drummer was annoying af — sorry


This channel is primarily about fun and building camera skills and riffing ideas, my overall mission is to get you thinking critically and laughing about the Internet, and particularly the ‘culture wars’.

This channel is partially for educational/comedy purposes, but also a small, self-funded, unsponsored, unedited show. If you expect me to do something YOU want (eg clips), then you are mostly certainly welcome to a) make clips yourself, or b) donate at higher tiers, or invest in my work, so I have time to do that.

This stuff isn’t free to produce, you know: https://teasmith.com.au/donate​​​​

Otherwise, if you aren’t paying me, this is supposed to be fun for me and #comedy​​​​ practice and I will talk about what *I* want. I swear BECAUSE it annoys people (and I have a stutter), so spare the lecture. Nobody owes anyone anything that isn’t paid for, including content creators. Thanks.

If you want someone who takes themselves seriously, then fuck off to an Americans-With-Sticks-Up-Their-Arses Channel, or feel free to report me to my HR Department: [email protected] or +61407877431 (Telegram or Signal)

PPS: We don’t live in America and the World’s #Internet is not your personal HR Department. You don’t own us, colonising pricks. STFU and stop chewing so loud. You might actually learn something.

Love you. Visit my website teasmith.com.au

ooh, you
saucy minx!

I see you. Sitting there. Seductively scrolling and clicking like the flirt that you are, reading and watching my stuff.

OK I can’t really see you, this is just a text box and I ain’t the CIA. I’m not watching you, I swear. Unless you want me to and the price is right. Ahem.

Anyway, sign up if you want and I might write to you from time to time. I’m cool. We’re cool.
