[twitch]http://www.twitch.tv/hbomberguy[/twitch]

I don't know how to embed twitch. :fp:

Anyway, left-tube funny man and video game player Harris Bomberguy has been streaming Donkey Kong 64 for 36 hours, (although he has had to sleep for a bit,) and has raised $144k so far.

In case you can't watch the video above, he's raising money for the charity Mermaids, a support charity for transgender kids, who were due to receive a lottery grant of £500k, until Father Ted writer, and now a guy who's weirdly obsessed with trans people erasing lesbians somehow, Graham Linehan, whipped up an online furore on mumsnet and got people to write angry letters to the lottery fund, and now the grant is under review.

Let's see what angry TERF Graham has to say:





Keep doing the good work to raise money, Graham!

I love Father Ted, Black Books and the IT Crowd, so it’s sad that Linehan is such a twat.

Fair play to everyone that helped raise money.

Don't know anything about it but the YT guy chose a great game to stream.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I knew he was going for the DK64 100% but I never thought his stream would be this big :o . He's a bigger star and most big twitch streamers :lol: .

I think you'd probably like his video on speed running,

I just started watching his vids after Polygon included his CtrlAltDel vid in their best video essays of 2018 list and yeah, he's good.

And strawberry float Linehan. The guy's gone right off the strawberry floating deep end.

They've just hit $150K. This is impressive.

I don't know why people feel the need to air opinions on stuff that they know nothing about, and that don't affect their lives in the slightest way. How difficult is it to just not be a cock to people?

Anyway, this is the gaming thread, and I have no opinions on DK64, so that's my last contribution.

Amazingly Linehan has positioned himself as standing up for women and protecting them from men who want to invade their spaces by pretending to be women.

Of course my, any women who call him out on this don't count.

If you like collectibles, DK64 is the game for you. I love it.

As my contribution to the thread - Graham Linehan’s twitter feed is absolutely noxious. I’m glad this guy is drawing attention to it.

This is much, much needed some carthasis to Linehan's descent into hateful madness. Hbomber and crew are goddamned legends, and this continues to be such a lovely feel good story :wub:

They've had a great slew of guests on in the discord too. Many trans folks (both unknowns and figureheads), many leftist youtubers and Grant Kirkhope!!

I still have a big soft spot for dopey old DK64, horrendously bloated as it is. Though even with the rosiest glasses, Beaver Bother brought back very, very painful memories D:

I'm not watching the stream, but donated to Mermaids anyway because he's streaming himself trying to complete DK64 101%, a task not dissimilar to trying to collect all the grains of sand on a beach and sort them by size and colour.

Also because it's a charity that offers support to kids, which is good.

Also also, Graham Linehan is just awful now, which is massively disappointing.
