The Official Nathan Barnatt Rise to Fame/Appreciation Thread

by Luke Wed Sep 28, 2011 10:31 am

I've only "known" Nathan for about maybe two-to-three years since meeting him on RacketBoy, but I've been rooting for him since we first chatted. He's busted his butt (literally) year after year to break into Hollywood and his hard work, natural physical talents, and great personality have paid off. Not to kiss his rear, but seldom have I met such an openly honest and personable person on an online forum who had such great intentions and energy (I was sold as soon as he posted the charity for Allyson).

Nathan has some pretty spectacular news to share, and since I don't know if he's mentioned it yet here, I won't say exactly what it is and will allow Nathan himself to share with the RB members. With that in mind, my hat is off to Nathan on another magnanimous venture, and I'm sure he'll keep up the great work.

Plus I figured it would be great to have a "Nathan" thread for all things Apicary/Amsley/etc.

Be sure to "friend" him on Facebook, "Like" his videos, and check his site often. Despite the fact that he has 100 irons in the fire (that's "very very busy" talk for people over 28), Nathan is really loyal to his fans and sincerely appreciates your support.

Now if only Stallone would cast Keith as Rambo for THE EXPENDABLES II...

ahh this is interesting - I never knew he was an RB member and tbh I got kinda annoyed because I thought he was 'slagging us' (i.e. gaming 'geeks') now that I know he is into it himself thats pretty cool :)

He use to be Blue Lazgun, but a mod changed his username several years ago.

To be honest, when he first started posting his clips I thought he was a spammer and almost banned him...

cool - I also saw he has a song called 'Dreamcast 2' something I'm pretty sure most of racketboy dream of :D

I don't think I would have ever cared about that mashup by Madeon had I not seen this awesome Nathan Barnatt video. It's just a lot of fun and is the sort of thing that can pick you up after a bad day. The fact that no one "liked" it when I put the vid on facebook just goes to show that all my facebook friends suck :lol:

Awesome topic. I love Nathan too. He is extremely funny and talented. I've watched a ton of his videos. All of the crazy characters he does are great. He is my favorite comedian.

It was always strange how he wasn't super popular, considering how hilarious and well put together his videos have been. I really think his work is easily at the level of the big name millionaires out there, if not better. He deserves all of the success he gets.

With the amount of rare games, consoles and arcade cabinets in his videos, I'm always surprised when people get this idea. Guy doesn't fork out for all that just to take the piss.

Nathan's great. Even my non-gamer artist girlfriend loves Keith Apicary. Keep up the good work.

I want to guess maybe he landed that job at Comedy Central? Thought he was pitching an idea to them or something like that...

It'd be kind of cool to see Keith do some more informative videos. Kind of like when AVGN did that Sega console (or Genesis add-ons? I forget) video that was really cool to watch. Love that sort of stuff from guys like this.

But yeah Nathan/Keith is awesome. ASSASSIN'S CREED
