      Lindsay Ellis Lindsay, i cannot begin to say how angry I is that you went through this. I hope that you will recover from this. Best wishes.

      I love your work now, and I'm happy to see you're in a less official but actually pretty great group of creators. I hope that they are all as decent behind the scenes as they seem to be on screen, as the more I see about Channel Awesome, the more I realise how ironic the name was, this coming from a former fan. Liked your work then, love it now, and I hope you keep it up. :)

      Blacks in the Unites States account for the vast majority of violent crime in the country despite the fact that they don't even make up 20% of the total population.
      Prove that this is a "fact-free belief", Mr. VirtueFag.

    I dunno, man. All their work was sloppy and amateur to begin with, so it's not surprising to find out they also ran a sloppy business. Pretty boring story if you ask me.

  • Pseudo Nym

    Just a few thoughts. First, when people get old enough/experienced enough, these kinds of quarrels become childish and petty, as much as it hurts to think about, most of the people concerned are well, kids, 20 and early 30 somethings who've latched onto the whole victim culture thing going around like cancer these days. Second, there is ALWAYS another side to the story, if a person hasn't learned this yet, they will. Third, when an assault happens, you go to the police, a crime has been perpetrated, if going to the cops doesn't happen, then rest assured there is - another side to the story. Once upon a time (like less than 30 years ago and before) people had enough strength of character to either tell someone off, or kick them in the nuts if they persisted, then move on with life because it's not the end of the world yet.

    14:55 "Is there something else that could fill the same function" What kind of mindset is that? We could say the same about anything shown in a movie "oh do we really have to show how someone gets killed" errr yes its integral to the story and the character who is that advice aimed at? writers that throw in random rape scenes into everything they write?

    I used to watch all of Doug's NC videos back in the day, but after the revival he had such unwarranted vitriol against the audience and made changes he knew they hated. He seemed to hate us for liking the NC content better than his other content but no one held a gun to his head and told him to make more. I was never into Nostalgia Chick because I had little in common with her except two chromosomes.

    I think its safe to say at this point considering the document and this video is more than 2 months old now and there have already been a ton of videos made about it. But the Jewwario revelation still kinda shakens me. To know someone who brought so much positivity and joy to both CA and his own fandom while being a tragic figure due to his later suicide turned out to have been one of the controversial figures of the site just shows the many facades of entertainers.
    Its also unsettling that even after his death CA still kept the image of him being this positive but severly troubled guy all the while knowing about his actions and not even asking or addressing the victims.

    So glad to know that people like Lindsay Ellis and Toddintheshadows are still respected content creators post Channel Awesome/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses. Lindsays video essays are nothing short of amazing, and Todds Pop Song reviews, Top 10s and his new TrainWreckords are just hilarious and still feels like hes the only one in his field.

  • MrWosull
    MrWosull 16 days ago

    Honestly comparing the channel awesome movies to The Room is kinda dumb. While the movies were incredibly gimmicky they were also very self aware. They never tried to be anything other than stupid low budget films. Were as the room took itself way to seriously, as if Tommy thought he was making a great film. Also the films had obviously terrible production values, but there actually was some clever writing at times and a lot of jokes that actually worked really well. In comparison theres nothing in The room that worked or was clever.

    From a legal standpoint, I believe that if their CEO is a bad actor (as in doing harmful things within the company, not literally poor at portraying roles), they can sue to have him removed and forced to sell his rights to something that's integral to the continuation of the business. Depending on how he acquired the rights in the first place, the courts may even find that he isn't actually entitled to them to begin with. IANAL though, just some guy that took a handful of legal classes and has a casual interest in business and copyright law.

    Channel Awesome is like a Fallen Empire, slowly decaying away with only the few who remain still producing things. With this major revelation, the channel is doomed to collapse and become nothing more than a pile of ruins left to either be forgotten or remembered as a warning for the future reviewers and content creators.

  • Roy Riley
    Roy Riley 21 day ago +1

    Problem with your perspective is the typical focus on the handful of misogynistic sociopaths rather than the crowds of spineless beta males which surround them and bend like wet noodles in the face of their aggression. You really think this pair could have gotten away with this kind of crap in a workplace full of actual adult men and women rather than the grown-children employed on CA and typical of geek culture.
    That's the thing so few people get. It's not about understanding intellectually or emotionally that this kind of behavior is wrong. Such understanding is more common in the 18-30 demographic than student loan debt. It's about having the courage to risk your career, your social status, even your safety to stop things before they escalate to the point that you need to escort girls to safe-houses, katana in hand.

    I'm so upset to hear that this happened.Channel Awesome was one of my inspirations in film and for TheXvid.Every time that I hear a content creator or company that make these problems I just have to walk away and move on,
    Such as Onision and now it seems like other creators are showing their true colors. I get mistakes but these we're choices.
    Thank you for making this video and I love your content and I'm happy that you and other good content creators like you to become my inspiration to look up to and for many others to look up to as well
    Keep being Amazing and again Thank you 🌟

  • AnnoyingSquib
    AnnoyingSquib 21 day ago

    It's just a guess, because no one knows the whole story. But is it possible that the reason Doug Walker has stayed so silent is because of the very fact that even though Mike Michaud owns the rights to the Nostalgia Critic, Doug is the face of the critic? I wonder if Doug might have been threatened with that fact. If he leaves and tries to make another identity for himself people may only view him as his "Critic" character which may lead into some sticky situations with Michaud's ownership of the character.

    Wow, great video, my friend. A very shocking look at some internet history that I didn't even know existed.
    It's especially trippy because I only recently became a fan of Lindsay Ellis' work. Naturally, I /had/ to binge all of her content.
    All the Nostalgia Chick videos have their comments disabled. It's not super unusual, but for some reason it gave me a weird feeling. When I started to see the Nostalgia Critic in some of the videos - especially noting his role in them - I just assumed what I thought was obvious, and never looked into it. Until seeing this video, I never knew the organisation even existed.
    The reason I never looked into it though is because of the Nostalgia Critic. I can't stand the guy. Or, I guess, rather, I can't stand his character. (Without getting too into it: I'm just not a big fan of overly manic comedy.) Still, even though I knew it was a character, it still weirded me out. Add to that, as I mentioned, the role he plays in the Nostalgia Chick videos as her sort-of-boss; it just rubbed me the wrong way. I wanted as little to do with him as possible.
    And then I saw Lindsay Ellis has the top pinned comment and I loled.
    The End
    (Definitely subbing and big respects from Canada, baby!)
