    On July 30, 2019, Brian David Gilbert set out to read every single Halo novel. He has finally unraveled all of them, but it's come at a price: No one wants to talk to him about Halo anymore.

Oh hey, the mustache is back... Is it weird that I like the shaved look better, but absolutely loved the fact that he grew it out in season 2 just to shave it for waluigi's ending?

So I know it’s sorta a meme that he’s so lost after finishing all the halo books but honestly? It’s horrifically relatable. Like, dunno how but BDG has this terrifying ability to conjure feelings about life with these metaphors that idk if they’re even intentional?? But that listless feeling after finishing a project, looking for a purpose, I forget it every time. And yet I am now feeling it?? Thanks Brian??

Now Brian just has to read all of bionicle’s extended lore (books, comics, etc.) and further isolate himself from the rest of humanity and then he will have touched on every major part of my childhood. I’ll also accept him becoming a hardcore dark souls lore theorist.

My question for you BDG is, as much as its fun to see you go through these experiments and kinda put yourself through a lil hell, do you have fun doing these? Id feel pretty sad if the stuff you put yourself through makes your life difficult and stressful having to make such, albeit amazing content, hope youre okay bdg

Awesome video. I've also read all the novels and now going back to read all the graphic novels too. The universe they created is so vast and rich and its just amazing. Im 32 and started when Halo CE came out and read the first 3 books when they first came out and just fell even more in love with Halo lore. I too was also super hyped when i saw that soren was going to be in the show, hes such an interesting character. But always love to see other people become indoctrinated and addicted to the halo lore and universe and realize how great it is and that the games alone dont do it justic and you gotta read and absorb all the other media to it, its just fantastic. I will happily love to disucss and talk about it more and all the novels anytime and would like to hear more of your tangents lol
