    I feel like one of my first ASMR memories is that scene in toy story when the old man is like getting all his doll cleaning stuff out of his box or whatever to clean woody i think. he like polishes his eyes and stuff like that. the noises and visuals for it are so soothing to me. lmao

    I worked out as a kid the right muscles to squeeze to trigger that feeling, so I assume it's a hormone release or something.

    If you're interested, it's somewhere between the base of the neck and the ears (and really hard to describe)

    This looks great! I recently got back into ASMR because of Griffon. Let me tell you something. It is incredibly helpful to those with insomnia,anxiety or depression.

      Weirdly, ASMR actually makes my anxiety a lot worse. It fills me with dread in a way I can't explain but just watching this trailer has left me feeling sick.

    ASMR stuff just bothers and angers me, same feeling I get from someone smacking food. However, I'm actually excited for the RTDoc

      It depends on the type for me. Like Heather's "Sk's" those are annoying as hell. I once woke up when that started playing in a video playlist once and i was like really mad. I remember saying "Shut up im tryna sleep" in my sleep before i woke up. And yeah food smacking is annoying as hell man. Just thinkin about it makes me wanna punch someone. But anyways, just try different things. You could like no voice ASMR, just items that make the sounds. I personally like personal attention and soft spoken stories and the likes. Cutebunny992 is great. She reads stories in greek, so you know you learn a little greek too when you get her.

    i'm curious to see if they go into any science behind it- I've never really looked it up (lazy), but I just can't seem to get the tingles from it. Perhaps this answers some questoins?

    At first I was skeptical about this whole premise. But then I remember the golden motto of Rooster Teeth, the one that gave us a few glorious year of constant RT Life videos, "It's content.". Or in latin, according to google translate, "suus ' content.".

      Yeah, how dare they look at what people might be interested in to see what it's about. /s

    • normalguycap

      6 months ago

      That's exactly the point. They take popular trends and run with them until the interest fades. It's cynical business is all. Except the horrible shit they did to RWBY after Monty died. There are lots of reasons why many of the staff leave or don't have good terms when they do.

    They got ASMRrequests! II've watched ASMR videos to help with anxiety and insomnia for a couple of years. I was excited to hear them address the phenomena on the podcast and can't wait to hear from my favorite entertainers about this.

    Honestly, I just love seeing Burnie and Gavin travel together and have fun.
    Could we make this a series, similar to Game Time, where Burnie drags of RT Members for trips like these and document the whole thing? This might just be the remnants of the Amazing Race talking, but something about Burnie's charisma gets me every time.

    ANYTIME I am unable to sleep, I slap on some Bob Ross' Joy of Painting, and I'm out. Love the dude's artwork, and his voice always helps sooth my racing mind. Sweet Sweet Lullaby. ASMR's a thing, even if never scientifically proven. You just, feel it.

    Are you kidding right now?! they get to go to India JUST to find a barber! haha but this is really interesting. I 've always wondered about ASMR especially since nothing affects me and while a two part mini-series doesn't seem like a justifiable amount of content for the one subject it's pretty cool to get to watch Burnie and Gavin look into it more.

    Looks like an interesting documentary, but the interview scenes could use some color grading, they seem a little too grey.
