Summary

Perhaps best known as the snarky narrator and cofounder of the viral YouTube channel CinemaSins, Jeremy Scott cracked the code of turning a passion for film and sarcasm into a full-time job. Original Sin is Jeremy's compelling story of family, career, and deep love for movies that launched him into internet stardom. In his trademark, unapologetic voice, he gives an irreverent and honest take on the wild ride to creating a YouTube sensation. This memoir-with-a-twist sprinkles listeners with his personal advice on the combination of dumb luck, know-how, and je nais se quois it takes to be successful on YouTube while hilariously relaying how two friends stumbled into fame. With anecdotes of laugh-out-loud misadventures and insightful, actionable advice for aspiring YouTubers, Original Sin is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look into the inception of an internet sensation. But more than that, it's one man's love letter to humankind's greatest escape, a pastime that allows us to dream and dwell on beauty, art, and truth.

Good memoirs. Good, not great.

Bought this because I'm a big fan of CinemaSins. It was really interesting to hear about the genesis of the channel, and the stories that shaped Jeremy's relationship with movies. There was a good amount of chuckle-worthy humor throughout, with a few genuine laugh-out-loud moments (the money-clip story got me good).

My biggest issue is with the lack of editing in the actual recording. There was a lot of audible breathing and mouth sounds that made listening very unpleasant. I wish an editor had gone through and removed all of that.
