  1. now thats art.
    not even Dweller can dislike that video.

    it had every thing. heros . vilians #drama.
    and special STAR cameos.

    out standing music and art direction.

    great plot:
    Refusal of the Call[edit]

    Often when the call is given, the future hero first refuses to heed it. This may be from a sense of duty or obligation, fear, insecurity, a sense of inadequacy, or any of a range of reasons that work to hold the person in his or her current circumstances.

  2. Now that I am back in my seat of power TWiT™ will rain lightning bolts upon you and all your so-called Knights.

    I am done waiting for tour buses, today I will forgo talking turkey or tech and will instead talk troll.

  3. Why should be be called Trolls? Surely since Laporte and co declare that they Tech Pundits but troll and badmouth the Tech World surely we can be referred to as TWiT Pundits for a similar reason.

  4. BUSTED?

    How real are Leo Laporke’s Tech Guy callers?


    [11:21] (Rufus) Caller has a radio voice too.
    [11:21] (Paige42986) hey kim
    [11:21] (YOGI) I recognize this caller he has called before!
    [11:21] (+Kim) hi Paige42986
    [11:21] (FriendlyManitoba) most of leos stalkers are repeat callers
    [11:21] (audio) Seriously, this guy has been on the show three or four times in the last six weeks.
    [11:23] (audio) The call screeners need to use caller ID.

    1. You know, I agree with Soup Laporke.

      IT is a mile-wide and mile-deep. For Leo Laporte to conveniently know within seconds how to help everyone and not be caught off guard by a tech question or just someone insulting him on air is TOO. PERFECT.

      My guess is that he does indeed rig most of his show with phony callers, and they get cash in hand for asking certain things and he gets a nice radio friendly presentation. Hell, for all we know Premiere could be in on it as well, considering the fact that they want a tech show where the guy doesn’t sound like an idiot.

      It may also explain why Leo had such a strong dislike for Erik Lanigan – I mean, wasn’t that young kid doing Tech Guy like content on his own, late at night, and doing it extremely well? He wasn’t faking it – he barely got paid anything as it was, so how could he buy off others?

      Wouldn’t shock me at all if some or all of TTG was staged.

    2. You know, if staff at Total Drama had unedited video archives of Tech Guy shows, there’s a nice little expose you could do around this one!! I’m guessing they don’t though (now Justin is gone)
