Breaking: EffenDunn is Effen Done?

Update: Confirmation that scary weirdo EffenDunn is gone.
Scary weirdo, Jason C. Cleanthes
Scary weirdo, Jason C. Cleanthes

Jason C. Cleanthes — aka EffenDunn aka EffenDumb — has, up until now, been Leo’s producer. Since he has no discernable skills, his future at TWiT is now in question.

Perhaps he kept providing crappy lists to Leo, week after week, resulting in his current — at least — demotion.

Leo later treated him as an intern taking photos. He may have to ramp up his Uber driving.

We previously thought he had been fired and we were wrong, so we don’t want to be too quick to call this one.

Be sure to read our comprehensive coverage of Jason C. Cleanthes (EffenDunn)’s time at TWiT.

    1. Exactly.

      Those two are an open book and it’s fucking vile. Like ee don’t know why Cleanthes gets the boot now even though he’s been fucking up all along.

    1. Well with Chad they pulled him off the Tricaster and took him into the office after doing a ‘review’ on the Ceho’s new toy, the 5K iMac. We watched the staff piddling with the iMac Chad was being fired. I’m sure something similar happened but we can’t tell these days because they eradicated the cameras that kept putting into the public arena stuff that was not be holding to the fake fucked up image that Leo likes people to believe of him.

      Maybe Effendumb left a room mic on when it shouldn’t be Leo felt that Effendumb was trying to portray him but Effen dumb has been job hunting for several weeks. Maybe he found a better paying job flipping burgers in a McDonald’s or cleaning lavatories for the City?

  1. I’m sure Karsten and his screen wiping skills will do very well for Leo!

    This whole operation is diseased. Remember when EffenDunn was on his ass wiping the floor? Titles mean shit at TWiT, you’re apparently a slave to the Cunts in Charge. Wiping shit down, getting Leo lunch, being an editor, being a full time host all fall under the same title here.

    1. Exactly. Just last night after TNSS, Leo barked “Can i get an intern to take pictures?” and then followed with “Just get Jason to do it. No, not Howell, the other Jason, Cleanthes.”

      Just another great example of Leo openly emasculating his employees/ colleagues in front of the cameras.

    1. He made the mistake of making Leo look like a dick (which isn’t difficult). Leo only hires people that worship him and work for pennies. His “new producer” looks like a real winner for sure…LOL…I’m always amazed that TWiT is still around every time I visit TD for an update.

  2. I caught wind of this and added it as a footnote in the last TD post about F’nDone

    Thanks for getting it up as a new thread TD!!!

    Anyway as much as we dislike F’nDone U gatta feel bad for the clueless fool, like someone said on the last F’nDone thread” who’s going to have the balls to tell this questionable “navy seal” lunatic?
    Will “ManTranny ” aka CeHo have bigger balls than that sniveling coward LeoLaFuck?
    I’m going to stay tuned to the local Petaluma news for the next few weeks to see what Breaking news may arise

    LMFAO

    This may be the last employee FatFuck and ManTranny fuck over!!!!
    One can only hope.

    Fuck You fatFuck!!!

    1. Also, if you remember, EffenDunn got the job at the same time that Leo was heavily interested in hiring a security guard. Leo hired him because he thought EffenDunn was “a Navy Seal badass.” He was shocked to hear EffenDunn correct him, in front of the cameras, saying “No Leo. I was just in the Navy.”

      His position began with him saying “no” to LeHo. That will NEVER end well.

  3. Masturbation is not a sin, however it can lead to sin (Adultery, Lust, etc) Also, the verse that discusses spilling seamen on the ground is referring specifically to that time period. In which the man in question, was punished for “pulling-out”, even though he was required by the law of Moses to inseminate his brothers wife (his brother was deceased). I’d also like to draw attention to your vulgar language. Those that sow sin, shall reap sin. Watch your language, and control your flesh brother.

    1. Thankfully you got nailed up there so that now, as a Christian, I can sin as much as I want as long as I remember to ask for your forgiveness afterwards. All of the major Christians do it! It’s the ultimate “Get out of Hell FREE” card. Thanks for the fun, Jesus!

  4. Laugh my fucking ass off @ this Jesus guy “aka FatFuckFriarTuck”
    Leo and Padre never cease to humor is while they troll TD

    Fuck you Jesus!!
    How do you like that?

  5. Karsten Bondy “drove a bus to help pay for college”. Watch out, Karsten. Don’t admit that you still do.

    That said, he looks like he’s got a damned sight more experience and usefulness than EffenDumb. Jesus, EffenDumb, surely you know not to say stuff like “I drove your daughter while moonlighting in a second job, just after you’ve said you hope I didn’t drive any Twit guests around”.

    Many years ago, I wrote a memo saying “we know a lot of staff are cheating with the figures”. I got called into a room and shouted into the floor: “We all know everyone cheats, BUT YOU NEVER SAY SO IN WRITING”.

    I was 22 when I learned that lesson. EffenDumb appears to have spent a lot of time around Leo and never learned it, until now.

  6. This is a new plan by Leo to save the network. Jason will still TD Leo’s shows, but “TD” will mean working the control panel. This could be the end of the line for Kara and/or Brian. If Effendumbass isn’t producing he will TD more and that’s someone’s job.

    Whether or not iHeart radio closes down there will be major cuts in jobs and shows at the twit striphouse.

    Luckily the extremely talented CEHo signed 12 networks to her smash success ArtisAnal LLC. The whore tells the advertiser she controls 13 networks and the advertiser has a menu tobuy this show and/or that’s how but you can bet TWiT is getting bought. I feel bad for Rene Ritchie and everyone else getting conned. You won’t see anyone outside Leo’s circle sign up.

      Does she really claim to have 12 networks with her Anal company? I would be shocked if that were true and TWiT wasnt still her only client.

        ‏@lisadlaporte May 13 California, USA
        After signing 12 networks & multiple clients we finally have a website!

        By networks she probably means places like iMore and other friends of Leo she is using. Her “Network” page shows who two are and it’s mostly guys in basements.

        There is no conflict of interest when an advertiser has limited dollars to spend, I am sure the dick-sucking-CEHo will not favor TWiT but will treat all the clients equally.

  7. So I also thought that carsten was replacing effendun.

    But isn’t effendun the TD (Technical Director) on Leo’s shows and Tonya the Producer? So is Carsten replacing Tonya and not Effendun???

    I remember Leo reprimanding Effendun on making sure he communicates with Tonya on guests – which implies that Tonya is the Producer and Effendun is just the TD. Versus his predecessor, Jason Howell – who was both TD and Producer??

    1. EffenDumb is both producer and TD for Leo’s “flagship” shows (TWiT, TWiG, MBW). Two-Ton-Tonya, who like EffenDumb has no marketable skills, “helps out” with booking (sending blind emails to potential guests and following up on Twitter with “you have email”).

      From what I heard on the live stream tonight, it sounds like this is EffenDumb’s last week at TWiT. Karsten is taking over all of EffenDumb’s duties. The future of EffenDumb’s TWiT tattoo is unknown.

  8. All we know for sure is mr. Navy won’t be producing Leo’s shows anymore. Will he be moved to other duties? Did he give his notice?

    Carston comes off as more professional and is probably a better choice for producing the flagship shows. It’s likely a smart move.

      Thank you for your suggestion, Joel. That is why we provided raw video at the bottom of the article. Given your limited intelligence, you may have missed that. If you watch the raw video, you’ll notice nothing interesting happened on the screen at that time.

      We provided video context along with audio context in the top video, showing Effen being Leo’s little bitch while you get to hear Leo making Effen his little bitch.

      Joel, I would like to respectfully request that you eat a dick.

  9. During this short clip Leo uses that kid’s voice thing he does a couple of times. It’s cringe inducing. The poor employees have to listen to it all the time one has to assume.

  10. A number of public intellectuals (no names for now) have approached me to see if we can get interest generated in a Reddit AMA with JCC. May be worth considering a KickStarter to launch his own show which could be a retro TWIT style show with funny moments cheek by jowl with poignant deep analysis of issues in tech.

  11. Yup
    I heard the pre show on Sunday as well confirming F’NDone is done after this week, sounds like he’ll be gone from Twit totally if you listen to F’N Done’s own words.
    My guess he’s go back to driving Uber full time now.
    He seems to be taking this very
    well by watching his actions in the above new video
    Hummmm
    Don’t psycho’s laugh a lot when they are contemplating something sinister?
    Or is F’nDone too dense to realize he’s losing his job?

    I was hoping to see the psycho in action

        Putting on a brave face knowing it was on livestream. Nobody likes people saying “told you so” and that’s what TD did when he started. They said he was crazy to give up his long time job to move to Petaluma to work for TWiT. He worships Leo and Leo can’t stand him. You can see it in every interaction they have including the video you are talking about.

  13. What a cesspit TWaT has become.

    First Lay-o chases away his top talent (Tom, Sarah) and now he boots out no talent creeps like F’n. Is there anyone left?

    Keep up the race to the bottom you #fatsoupslurpingfuck!

  14. He is not hiring a replacement, he is firing the main TD and not hiring a replacement. What does that tell you? Elgum was fired/quit they didn’t hire a replacement either.

    The financial woes are deepening. This could be because the CEHo hired a few people to staff her Anal is Art Agency LLC. That failure is not going to help this nightmare. Look at her website to see the 12 networks she signed, yikes. She is wasting a lot of time and money just to rip off a few no-name podcasters.

    Leo’s hatred of effendumb was apparent from the start. The only way you can survive twit as a kiss ass is if you work free like padre or do sexual favors for boss. Leo did a good con on effen telling him he loves him or it was Leo’s fault for not hiring someone with experience, Leo is a great con man and he makes you feel loved when he fires you only to immediately block your number once you’re out the door.

      1. Promoting from within? There’s no ladder to climb at TWiT. It’s a private LLC with an egomaniac at the helm, there’s no ladder to climb.

        It’s not a corporate ladder, it’s a round robin until you stop kissing Leo’s ass, then it’s firing time.

        Let’s see, since moving into the Shithouse in 2011 how many producers has Leo had? Eileen, Chad, Jason Howell and EffenDunn. That’s four people in five years. That’s telling you something.

        1. While it’s a small business, there are still levels of work and promotion within the company. Carston was promoted to take over production of the flagship shows. And sure, there isn’t much above that at twit. Moving to another company is probably his next step up, if he can manage that.

          The context was about hiring for twit. It makes perfect sense for them bump someone up from their staff. Anyone new has a lot to learn about the twit way. As an employee, you want a chance for promotion. If twit was to hire from outside for the best production job at twit, employees would resent management. If they can promote someone internally, it makes sense. It’s not eliminating a position. It’s just filling a less critical one from outside.

          1. What are you talking about? Chad did that job and then someone more experienced than Chad, Jason, was promoted to Chads job. Then Effenidiot took over for Jason with Zero experience. Now Karsten who was there longer than Chad and Effen is getting that job.

            There are no promotions. They’re all slaves, clean the bathroom, clean the floor, bring me soup, they are all the same.

            He was fired and there is no new hire.

            Ok Faux, put it that way.

          2. It clear Jason C. wasn’t fired.

            When people let their grudge or hate or bias cloud in their mind even the basic facts, you’re going to sound stupid even to people who might agree with your moral opinion/position.

            It’s perfectly reasonable and desirable to hire from within when you can. When you have a need that isn’t met with that, you bring in someone new. Promoting Carston/Karston/RonaldMcFartpants is what you do when that employee shows he has what you need.

            For some here, it doesn’t matter what happens from moment to moment, they look for a way to spin it negatively. You ruin discussion and sully this website. The rest of us like to get the information straight and then weigh in with our thoughts and predictions. Hate Leo all you want, but don’t let that turn you into an irrational babbling parrot.

            From screen wiper to producer of the “flagship” shows.

  15. Could it be people are just a little jealous of Leo’s success?
    Ask yourself these questions.

    Do I get to eat 3 meals an hour from a quart canning jar?
    Do I have 3 real leather purses of assorted sizes for gadgets?
    Do I wear custom made shirts that were made out of old curtains?
    Can I lease a Tesla X because I think the doors are cool?
    Do I have a no-maintenance wife that takes care of my money and handles employee problems?

    I can say no these questions. But then I don’t own a media empire.

    1. Ask yourself THESE questions:

      Do I have high blood pressure?
      Do I have diabetes?
      Do I have micropenis?
      Am I a fat fuck?
      Are my two children a mess?
      Am I on my third marriage?
      Does my wife look like a syphilitic prostitute?
      Do I fill my empty life with material objects in a futile attempt to give it meaning?

      You know, I think you’re right. My loathing stems from my jealousy at not having the aforementioned gifts.

  17. Just after tonight’s TWiT, Effin came on camera and said he quit and was not fired. He also gave us his complete Navy career. Groan.

    Anyway, that’s what he had to say.
