About Boh3m3


Taken from Wikipedia page:

Ben Going (born June 15, 1985), username boh3m3 on YouTube, is a video blog personality out of Torrance, California. According to the Associated Press, Going is “one of the best-known members of the YouTube community.” [1]

Most of Going’s videos are shot in black-and-white. He has claimed to be “the only person on the (YouTube) Most Subscribed List that swears excessively”. Often in his videos, he wears a signature black hat. Subjects of Going’s vlogs have included pop culture, the news media, and the state of the YouTube community, in addition to personal anecdotes.

I honestly couldn’t think of a better way to describe myself… And this lends no credibility to the site whatsoever.

I’m not sure how to write much about myself without coming across as a putz, so please forgive me if my douchery gets overwhelming.

Over the past year or so, I have been making videos and posting them on youtube.com. Since getting started, I’ve gained a decent following of intelligent and skeptical viewers just like myself who are tired of seeing the world gone mad without being able to vent about it. The videos, for the most part, have been topic-based discussions on pop culture and Youtube with a few sketches and narratives thrown in for good measure.

Recently, I have decided to pursue animation and creative editing in lieu of video blogging. My new focus is on producing content that stands on its own, and not simply commenting on the work others are creating. I am also developing my skills as a writer, focusing on satire and parody here on boh3m3.net

As a direct result of my work on youtube and the skills I’ve learned through brute practice, I have been interviewed in publications such as Newsweek, The New York Times, Newsday, The New York Post, and the Associated Press. I’ve saved the internet and pissed off Australia. Despite all this, I’m still called a slacker, and just can’t be bothered to correct anyone.

  5. i think its freakin funny that you have to steal the about you page from wikipedia…


  7. Too tired or bored to write even a short bio on yourself?
    Try the new foolproof lazy-ass-bum method! Only 3 simple steps!

    1. Get popular on YouTube.
    2. Get popular enough to have a Wiki article written about you.
    3. Ctrl + C , Ctrl + P

  8. Aww now when did that article go up?! I’ve been out of the loop for so long…

    And copying a wiki article, Ben? I would expect nothing less of you :)

  9. are you and thehill88 still a couple?

  10. Boh3m3,

    You have such a pretty smile! Love those teeth. So Cute! And those eyes, so puppy doggish lol. And those pretty lips. And you’re so hilariously funny and stylish! Surely you have no problems gettin’ the ladies! ;)

  11. Dude, I remember reading that Wiki like a month or two ago, and now it’s here?! Hooray for the interwebs! But, seriously; you forgot about how you’ve saved the lives of billions of people from Latvia by having the best YouTube intro ever. You saved Latvian people from suicide, Ben. Congradulations, and Godspeed.

  12. Ben Going,
    I don’t know whether or not you remember me, but we went to high school together. I refrained from sending you some kind of an initial message along the lines of “ZOMG! I know you!” when I first saw your videos…maybe a year and a half ago(?)
    I am contacting you now because I would love to do one, or both, of the following two things:
    1)Start some form of personal correspondence with you. You’re badass.
    …as well as…
    2)On a more professional note, I’d be interesting in describing to you my plans for making a documentary about video bloggers, and maybe see if you’d be interested in participating.

    I won’t get into the specifics in this message, but you can email me if you would like to hear more.

  13. i must say that is some fancy confangled words you used right there.. but i must say… your parents played a cruel cruel joke naming you… ben going.. that would be like naming me elvis (priestley is my last name) im sorry thats the best comment i could come up with..

  14. In defense of Ben’s parents….Benjamin is a fine name.8^)
    No joke intended, I’m sure…..couldda been worse!

  16. Hi Ben,
    happy new year! and a sweary Xmas to you too.
    I didn’t enjoy any of it… and now I’m just locked up
    (voluntarily) somewhere, with nothing but the internet
    and Youtube to entertain myself. So I found your blogs,
    and I just love the way you explain thing, your funny faces,
    the cool of it all. And I can see that your a friendly person, you gave this boy Dylan such welcome advice… I could use some too, but I guess I ‘m too old to ask advice from you. No, I’m just too stiff.
    Anyway, I’m not a Utube member otherwise I would have left
    some comment there. Now I saw this video about the torture
    of the genitals. God.. I’ve just read a nice fantasy about a masochistic courtisane who loves pain, but even in this book they didn’t go so far. They only tried to skin her alive. Kushiel’s Dart by Jaqueline Carey, if you would be
    interested, I enjoyed it,couldn t put it down anymore, but of course there is so much to like, and so little time. That’s why it’s so stupid, this being locked inside the house. Tomorrow I have to get out of here. Thx for the energy! And keep up the good vibes.

  17. yeah man you are one of my favourite people on youtube. I am glad you are not taking your account down. I have only been watching your videos since dear flamboyant gay man came out. You are Youtube man,


  18. dude, I just wanted to say that you rock!
    I can’t even tell you what kinds of motions you make me feel (oh, that might sound perverd) but…
    Well, you are a _very_ handsome guy, but that’s just one thing.
    I LOVE your videos.
    Oh god..
    You make me happy.
    The reason why I’m telling this is that there are very few things / persons who can do it.. Who can make me happy.
    So you should be proud.
    (Sorry about my english.. I quess I’m not so good at it)
    Well, I think that’s all. I hope you read this (shit) some day :p
    Geep up the good work!

  19. Your art, your blogs, your videos show a side of you that can be simply put as a creative, well thought out, open-minded expressive individual! One day I hope we could be friends, hang out talk things up, talk things down, and everything in between.

    Side Note: I don’t know what you are talking about when you say you cant get laid!! I mean what are you only hanging out blind and deaf females???
