UNPOPULAR TGWTG COMMENT OF THE WEEK IN LIGHT OF “NO MORE NOSTALGIA CRITIC”:
The wife’s making you quit, huh, Doug?
Christ, fellas - if I knew speaking my mind was all it took to get my posts re-blogged, I would’ve dogged out TGWTG ages ago. :P
ATTENTION PEOPLE OF CHANNEL AWESOME, ITS SISTER SITES, CLONES AND AFFILIATES:
Read this book.
Whether you’re an official contributor on TGWTG, and aspiring fan, or anyone who makes movie/video game reviewing a veritable second career by updating religiously, having “season finales”, or frequently posting videos onto Youtube or Blip. PLEASE READ THIS BOOK.
I assume the majority of you out there are in your 20s or approaching this age, but regardless the message of this book is clear. Stop wasting time and do something with your life. After reading the first chapter I was scared shit-less of wasting my formative years, but I felt even worse for the countless, countless others on the Internet who devote a sickening amount of time on video editing and voicing their opinions on obscure media that no one but other syncophants give a shit about. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. Even if you listen to nothing else I have to say, for the good of your being, do yourself a favor and READ THIS BOOK.
Hey, I want you to read this…
The past can steal your present if you let it. – You can spend hours, days, weeks, months, or even years sitting alone in a dark room, over-analyzing a situation from the past, trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve or should’ve happened. Or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and walk out the front door into the sunlight to get some fresh air.
Response to Bards’ Blog Post “How NOT to Manage Your Brand”
Original article can be read here.
Cameos are nothing new to the TGWTG universe - they are here to stay, and the sooner you accept that truth, the sooner you’ll learn to begrudgingly tolerate it, like a health nut tolerates a daily dose of cod liver oil for strength and vitality. :/
That being said, you have to understand: Obscurus Lupa and Diamanda Hagan originally got their start by posting their work on the “Your Reviews” forum, so it only makes sense they would show up in numerous cameos for the up-and-comers; they are the intermediaries between the have’s and the have-nots of the online video contributors of That Guy with the Glasses, and it would only make sense that they would pay their dues by acknowledging where they came from (I can’t really say the same for Phelous, but I guess he can do his own thing - I rank him with Cinema Snob as contributors with legitimate talent outside of Channel Awesome’s microcosm, so there’s really no harm in using his presence to bolster credibility in other people’s videos).
The TGWTG of 2012 is a much different beast than the fledgling TGWTG of 2008. Should the site still exist five years down the road (though I seriously doubt it), it would likely consist of second-rate wannabe contributors and rejects of rejects of rejects, basically a revolving-door admission policy where if you can hold a webcam you’re in.
It’s like that old saying “I wouldn’t want to belong to a club that would have me as a member.”
mellon-collie asked: Lupa is the Yoko?Really?Because she got sick of Spoony's shit and said something?I think most of you Spoony apologists forget that at the end of the day the site is a workspace not a bunch of bffs who decided to review stuff And in a workspace a behavior like his would never be tolerated for so long I love his videos but honestly the site is not losing much but he is His behavior is alienating his friends there
I’m not apologizing for Spoony.
I pity him, yes; I think he should get treated for his depression and quietly go away from the Internet for a while, and get his life/health back on track.
Lupa spoke up for Spoony’s irrational behaviour? Fine. She has the freedom of speech. But why wait A WHOLE MONTH to pull out that chestnut? It felt calculated. It felt like she KNEW she had something to use against the guy and waited for just the right moment to whip out her trump card. It may not even have been about the rape joke - I wouldn’t be surprised if it eventually comes out tht she had conspired with the higher-ups at Channel Awesome or some of the staff to use it as the impetus to finally get Spoony booted off the site, the quality of his work has been declining for quite some time now.
And mellon-collie, I wholeheartedly agree with you on TGWTG essentially being a workplace requiring some degree of professionalism - it’s a business after all, right?
And that’s why I think it’s so thoroughly fucked-up that Channel Awesome turns a blind eye to their employees canoodling it up and having their relationships publicly known on the site.
Nostalgia Chick and bff Nella don’t count. But Nostalgia Chick and Todd? JesuOtaku and Nash? Lupa and Phelous? LinkaraxIron Liz and RosesxPaw when they were an item? I’ll say it once, and I’ll say it again: just one big incestuous CLUSTERFUCK at That Guy With the Glasses, and they seriously need to be cracking some whips over there.
(Even if those relationships were staged for the sake of the fans, then that in itself would be a pretty sad revelation. We’re not talking Kim Kardshian/Kanye West or Kristen Stewart/Robert Patterson over here - these people aren’t high-profile celebrities drumming up publicity for their brand, they’re video contributors on a website, and they shouldn’t be airing their dirty laundry like this, whether their romances are fake or real or otherwise.)
But back to Lupa. What really rubs me the wrong way about this whole situation was that this was the second time in a row that this chick’s name popped up when the shit hit the fan.
Do you recall the 3rd Anniversary special? And no, I’m not referring to the Gatorade scandal - I’m talking about Apollo Z. Hack’s sudden departure from TGWTG last year. I believe there were a myriad of reasons why the dude suddenly up and left the website, a lot of it having to do with disillusionment with his work, but can you blame the guy? And if I recall correctly, Apollo and Lupa were an item at the time as well.
And that’s why I say Lupa is Yoko Ono.
Anonymous asked: Great job using a Ralph gif in that post about Lupa. I already assume you have the intelligence of him anyway. Dumbass.
Awesome job calling me out in an anonymous message on Tumblr. I assume you have the testicular fortitude of a gnat or something similar to that effect. Plebeian.
I know nothing about this Obscurus Lupa, but I get the feeling she’s the Yoko Ono of Channel Awesome.
GODDMAN IT I CAN’T HANDLE ALL THIS E-DRAMA TONIGHT, I WAS SUPPOSED TO FINISH READING “50 SHADES OF GREY”.
HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT WTF BEEN GOING ON IN THE WORLD OF THE INTERWEBS?!
Spoony ejected from Channel Awesome?! What? Please someone fill me in on this if you can.
When I was in high school, I was an outcast for not being cool enough…
When I was on TGWTG, I was an outcast for not being geeky enough.
So fuck it, I’ll go the sexy-poseur-geek-girl route and idolize Olivia Munn.
FUCK DA POLICE.
