Onision’s entire channel (all three of them) can essentially be broken down into the same four video concepts that he repeats ad nauseum:
1. Regurgitating poorly-written songs and skits with the exact same topics in the exact same format over and over again. “I’m coming out as [insert sexual orientation/gender here]”. “I’m So [Whore/Pedophile/Nerd/Emo/Goth/Stalker/Hippie]”. “Onision and Laineybot doing the ______ tag!” “Onision Googles ______ and reacts to it!”.
The only time that there is ever any variation in this other repetitious routine is when other YouTubers are featured in his skits. Otherwise, they are mundane and repetitive.
2. Rehashing the exact same stories from his past over and over again (being in the air force, why he doesn’t talk to his dad, YouTubers that he’s fought with, girls he regrets dating even though we’ve all heard about all of his exes dozens of times each, etc), because he doesn’t have a life and never does anything new worth sharing with his fanbase.
(Take it from me, guys. When you’re stuck at home 24/7 - whether it’s by choice, like Onision, or by coercion, like Lainey - there is so little intellectual, social, and sensory stimulation going on in your life that the only thing left to do is ruminate about the past. I guarantee that the source of much of Lainey’s depression is boredom and inactivity; and I’m sure that this is also why he sometimes allows her to bring friends to come and live with them for a while. She’s bored and starved for interaction, but he doesn’t want her to leave the house for school or work, because then there are outside factors at work in her life that he has no control over. Onision has kept her and himself in this situation on purpose - he doesn’t want a normal life outside of this limited, but comfortable, little bubble that’s entirely within his control.)
3. Starting shit with other YouTubers. Choose a new (or old) target every week when the drama begins to die down again. Repeat ad nauseum. **BONUS!** Wonder why his channel isn’t doing as well as the channels of other big YouTubers who actually do things, like go out of their way to be quality content creators, collaborate and maintain positive relationships with other YouTubers, and work to stay within YouTube’s TOS (which I bet he’s regretting not trying harder to do now).
4. Ranting, talking, or complaining about the same repetitive topics over and over again. Republicans. Religion. Feminism. Cutting. Andy Biersack. Mental illness. Animals. LGBTQ+. Eugenia Cooney. Ex-girlfriends (Skye, Shiloh, Adrienne, Billie). Circumcision. Marijuana. Anything revolving around weight and physical appearance in any way: obesity. Anorexia. How to lose weight. Binge eating. How to gain weight. “Body positivity”. Diet. Veganism and vegetarianism. “Would Onision date you?” “Does Onision think you’re hot?” “Onision rates YOUR body on a scale from 1 to 10!” “Are you fat or skinny?” “What does the perfect female body look like?”
The man has not had an original idea in years. Hell, he even stole the concept of Chibi Derp from Fred. Do something else, Onision. This is why your channel is dying.
Thank you. Thank you for being kind to me and talking about life with me. You are so sweet and kind and you could not ever realize how much I needed that today.
After dinner I left my house with my dog, music blasting. I went to the neighborhood park to cry. This whole week has been awful and I just feel like everyone in this world has something against me. I went to go into the dog park and you were there.
You and your perfectly trained golden retriever, we talked, and talked. We talked about dogs and school and life. You must be in your sixteys and I’m in my teens, but our age difference only pulled us together. You talked of a boy who once took you to your homecoming dance and I admitted to you how terrified I was to go to my first.
I left the dog park with a smile on my face. I went home and sat on my back porch with my dog eating ice cream. I let things go.
I am happy. Thank you for helping me realize that there are more important things in life than stupid boys and people who make you feel worthless.
