Alex Lindsay provides much-needed relief from Leo Laporte’s bragfest

TWiT Eastside Prison, Petaluma, CA.

While Leo and Lisa Laporte continue to traipse around the Middle East taking terrible pictures with expensive cameras, employees back at the Eastside Studio are dreading their return.

And it’s not because this means they will have to raise their level of performance once the bosses are back. We know for a fact that employee performance never improves at TWiT, as evidenced by watching any TWiT podcast. What employees ultimately dread is the inevitable bragfest that ensues once the world travelers return from their much-deserved vacations™.

As viewers we can choose to look away or hit the mute button when Leo Laporte decides to spend 10 minutes recounting the amazing lobster dinner he had in Egypt, but if you’re dumb enough to move your family across the country to work at the pleasure of a racist, pervert and con man, your options are more limited.

TotalDrama employee “Steve” says he now feels differently about Alex Lindsay

But what this TotalDrama writer easily discovered is that people who work for TWiT can be just as braggadocios as Leo Laporte, and this is greatly troubling. Perhaps the bloviated aura from Leo’s decomposing asshole jumps from his chair into the next overweight host who sits in it, we’re not sure. Video is above.

Note: If you clicked on the video expecting to see iJustine smiling into the camera and making some aporophobic statement about how scared she is of homeless people in Los Angeles, I apologize in advance for this deception.

  1. His photos really are absolutely terrible. I mean he was never great but his photos this time are really poor. Great to see he’s given up on photography like most other things.

      He honed his photography skills on cock shots.

  2. Granted, but you have to admit that if they were looking for a bloviating blowhard to counter the one that is Greg Farro, they undoubtedly found it in Lindsay.

    1. This was mentioned on the livestream and captured by the room mics. Leo said he might buy some of Alex’s old gear which was being sold/liquidated, and the other things he said suggested bankruptcy. There would be dozens of people in the livestream who heard this too. There might still be a clip floating around, somewhere. It happened on Mar. 31st.

      1. PixelCorps sells old equipment they no longer need. It doesn’t mean it’s bankrupt, dumbass. You idiots are so blinded by rage you make crap up.

          1. Your sources are whatever fever dream you pull out of your butt. A quick look at the Marin County court records shows no such bankruptcy. If you have actual proof, then post it.

          2. King Leo Laporte: Paste your link to the website you checked this on.

            Google it, Sparky. Surely you know how, don’t you?

            Better yet, why don’t you post YOUR source?

            Oh yeah, you can’t. It doesn’t exist.

          3. As mentioned previously the source is live video viewed on Mar. 31st and it was absolutely clear from what Leo said that Lindsay had suffered a major financial crisis. We gave Alex Lindsay the opportunity to confirm or deny this on Twitter and he chose not to answer. If he had stated we were mistaken the mention of bankruptcy would have never made it into the video.

            Any record of bankruptcy would be in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of California, and you can’t just “look this up” without a PACER account and searches costs money. But you know this because you had a “quick look” right?

    2. Was Pixel Corps ever a real thing? It seemed like some sort of tax shelter scam or something. This dude was always talking about the hundreds of thousands of dollars he was spending on gear, but I have no freaking clue what they ever made with it.

  3. I’ve been out of the loop on TWiT drama for a few months now.

    Anyone have an update on the couple that used to appear on TWiT that moved to Portugal because of a real estate fraud case?

    Is Leo still in the shit hole studios? I thought for sure that place would be closed down by now.

    Pixel Corps always sounded more haughty than it was. I’m surprised it went bankrupt since Alex was traveling the world to bring livestreams to audiences.

    1. Oh, and Justine is a total babe. I agree with her rank consumerism being a turnoff, but still, TWiT could do with more people like her and less of the Brianna Wu’s.

      I never quite understood what pixel crops did, honestly. I know Alex worked on star wars or something, but I don’t think that was a pixel corps thing and I don’t think they do vxf

      1. From my very limited google research, I think they were basically a digital sweatshop, employing third world people to do tedious fx work. But I’m not totally sure about that, and I was always asking the same question, because Alex acted like a such a big deal, but you never heard anything about any project he’d completed. It could just as easily have been a tax fraud, because he sure did seem to piss a lot of money into it.

        1. Yeah, he would often quickly pass through, like he was the busiest guy in the world, and Leo would say stuff like “There’s the guy” or “He’s too busy for us”….but never one word about any specific Pixel Corps projects.

          1. There are tons of naive people who go to Hollywood looking to make movie or pilot with a hundred grand or something, and walk away with nothing a few years, and as well as an industry of vultures to prey on them. All they have to do is stroke the ego of the poor midlife crisis sap going to make his movie like they will be ready to edit it when it is done for the duration of the scam until they run out of funds or come to their senses.

    3. You would be referring to Natalie Morris neé Del Conte, and hubby Clayton . Yes they are still overseas to avoid prosecution.

      It should not have surprised anyone. Natalie’s biggest claim to shame before this was actually documented inadvertently years ago on TWiT. They’d sent a crew to E3 and ran into both Natalie and Clayton. Clayton was married with kids at the time but Natalie made it her mission to capture that man and his wealth. She was pregnant soon after and Clayton’s existing marriage imploded as he walked away in divorce and eventually married Natalie, who hadn’t stopped having kids. So basically she put a target on his…wallet and stole him and it. In that way, she showed her style years before this scam went all wrong.

      And she used to be fairly entertaining on Cranky Geeks. But it was probably nothing but a trap waiting to spring.

      1. Notice how all the people around Leo are scammers, pigs, pretenders and bullshit artists? He is a weird freaking twat in person. A lot of anger there and a noticeable creepy sexual thing. This is not a nice guy. He now has ozzie the stuffed dog’s penis rigged with animatronics. It goes up and down with a bluetooth remote he keeps in his desk. He’s also got a naked lady pen in there, and old playboys and cheddar balls. And don’t think he’d really like YOU because of his personna on camera. He won’t.

      2. He’s toast as she cranks out kid after kid after kid. Alimony plus paying for all those new kids to go to college is a total spleenfest.

        Off topic, but I was sad when she changed her name after getting married. Natalie Del Conte is beautiful and distinctive, and she changed it to friggin Morris *eyeroll emoji*

    4. He’s still in the same dingy office park. I was in Petaluma and sat in as “audience” on a episode of Twit. Leo’s empire is no great shakes, ramshackle fixtures, lights, and a lot of hoarded computer junk. For his audience he provides six old armless chairs that are so uncomfortable the two hours felt like six. My take is Leo is a tired old man, desperately hoping someone will buy his “network” and put him out of his misery.

    5. To make sense of it all, start to think of “money laundering” and ask yourself why you needed to run a money laundering operation in the first place.

      It begins to make sense especially if you understand the nature of someone who cannot stop talking.

  4. Alex Lindsay is so full of shit. Here’s what he was doing….he got a couple of third world governments to pay him to TEACH Final Cut Pro to the local mouth breathers. The govt would buy all these macs and when the “students” weren’t killing townsfolk and looking at port the “PIXEL CORP” would get paid to teach these Cretans under the guise of helping the country develop their human resources for a modern world. His wife is from one of the countries so he did it there. They had to fly there for her family anyway. When that laid the giant wet fart he tried it with a South American government. What a fucking name dropper and internet pretender. Leo would guy him like a pig and take all his equipment if he could. These are all pretenders who are all hat and no cattle.

  5. Alex Lindsay
    Event Architect, Pixel Corps

    Over the past 25 years, I’ve worked in almost every facet of media production. I started in Radio as a Host, Music Director and Asst. Program Director. I then moved to TV (Prime Sports Network), Games (Anark), and UX Design (Broderbund) before landing at Lucasfilm as a pre-vis artist. I then moved to Industrial Light and Magic to join the “Rebel Mac Unit” working on “Star Wars: Episode 1”.

    After ILM, I founded Pixel Corps to teach the world visual FX and media creation. I built a network of over 4,500 production artists in 40 countries. In 2012, I helped found the “Africa Digital Media Academy” in Rwanda to develop local capacity in media production.

    Over time, we evolved from media training into media production. We executed over 2,000 live stream events for Fortune 100 firms, heads of state and prominent celebrities. As the Event Architect, I designed and executed many of these events in some of the harshest conditions, on short timelines, around the world, using local talent – with a success rate over 99%.

    Skillset:

    • Ability to reliably distill complex and novel ideas into effective production pipelines through creative thinking combined with a logistical and pragmatic approach to execution

    • Hands-on advanced knowledge: Audio, 2D/3D Animation, AR, VR, 360, Video Production, Encoding, Show Design, Host/Talent Coaching, Educational Design, Delivery Platforms and A/V Systems Architecture

    • Technical understanding of all major media platforms and distribution pipelines for everything from LED walls to VR headsets to iPhones

    • Ability to select talent and build large creative teams while developing their technical capabilities over time

    • Ability to design and execute events while managing the often conflicting needs of multiple and diverse stakeholders

    • Experience executing shows within security and protocol heavy environments for A-list talent

    • Experience coordinating multiple external creative teams for interconnected, multi-continent live events

  6. Alex’s schtick was to teach people in Zimbabwe how to type with their assholes because all their feet, toes and fingers were eaten away by mad cow disease, Ebola and SARS. And to show them how to stream it in 8k.

    He’s a fucking leach riding on government coin. Its funny coming back and watching live after all these months being away, of these last jokers, on their knees, sucking Leo’s smelly uncut euro cock. You’ve seen the dick pics.

    Total live viewers I see now for their most popular show, TWiT is at 400 lol.
    Does Leo even know there are so many delivering news? Take Linus TT. Tonight he dropped a video on Intel, in less then 2 hours, it has 225,000 views.

    The Leo shit house? Nobody gives a fuck. And Fuck You Loquicious you fat mid west pig. I’ve seen pics of you, your a vile, hideous truck stop pig. Fuck you cunt.

    1. Leo is a long time Tesla owner, how dare you!

      Honestly though, most of those YouTubers have their own mouth-breeding fanboy armies. Ever seen the dumb “I’m a simple man, I see a new channel XYZ video I click like.” I’m guessing Linus’ penis isn’t all that since he’s married to an ugly Asian chick.

        There are upsides: they rub your nipples during sex. Besides Linus put surface mount diodes in his honker and it now runs on raspberry pi.

    2. Alex got people fucking coffee at ILM the short time he was a junior to the assistant intern, and the royal wiper. Sort of like a Wesley Crusher vibe back around the first episode. THAT no gets spun as, “When I WORKED on Star Wars episode One.” In Zimbabwe he got Robert Mugabe to buy 40 iMacs to teach the natives Final Cut. With 400 billion Zimbabwe dollars to ONE U.S. dollar it cost the government there 99 Quintillion, 786 Quadrillion, 333 Septillion Zimbabwe dollars to purchase 40 iMacs. Just to teach how to ripple edit and apply a LUT to the underprivileged community outreach la da doo da. What a load of shite. And it’s whitey (Alex Lindsay) coming in with his look down at Zimbabwe Lacricia and De’Vonte that creates elite talk of “L-cuts” and “J-cuts”. Why Alex you can shove that high faluttin talk up Andy Anotko’s ass. I think Andy plays with little action figures. And another thing! When is that hot roller derby chic gonna be on twit again?

  7. They’ve sold naming rights to their amazing studio to LastPass. I can’t breathe this is so funny.

    I guess one night while giving Leo’s tiny penis a tug (but really watching football out of the corner of her eye) she had the brilliant idea to sell naming rights like they do in the NFL. Let’s be honest, a true marketing maverick.

    What a money grubbing couple these two are. Nobody even cares about his current strip mall shit hole. Back in the day he had fans that lovingly donated to buy bricks to build a studio that the fans dubbed it the Brick House, before Loosa and her lack of foresight forced them to move prematurely. Again, who cares about this dump where Leo’s career went to die.

    Underwear ads, penis enlargement pill ads. Why the fuck am I surprised? I guess it’s because I thought LastPass was a decent company but apparently they have fallen for this snake oil salesman’s nice guy shtick – he’s a gluttonous asshole whose only viewers are watching out out spite or they’re geriatric fucks with literally nothing else to do or nobody else to talk to.

  8. Leo getting all defensive about selling the naming rights to the studio.

    “Why would I allow that? It would destroy the value of our content. LastPass didn’t buy the company. They bought advertising.

    If I could do TWiT for free I would but we do have to pay our employees, the rent, the electric, and a considerable amount for web services. Every time you download a show it costs me money. We tried the subscription route in the early days. It didn’t cover the rent. The only way TWiT works is as an ad supported network.

    I have very strict editorial rules to insulate content from advertisers. Advertisers understand and support that because they know our credibility is key to our continued success.

    It’s insulting to me and our excellent journalists that you think we would let anyone dictate or even influence our content. I know we live in sadly corrupt times but not here. Never here.”

    ” do it all the time and will continue to do so. Please don’t insult us. (Incidentally for many people BitWarden is better than either LastPass or 1Password.)

    I don’t think you guys understand how undermining it is to assume we would be swayed by an advertiser’s dollars. Advertising is advertising; editorial is editorial, and never the twain shall meet.”
