Out of curiosity, are Channel Awesome going to get any money out of having all those videos still linked via the "Sure you're all gone, but gently caress you we're listing your videos anyway Archived Shows" tab?

Is Buster the one with the Jewish skeleton called Ronnie or is that someone else? I don't know, I hate skits now and prefer when reviewers just try to get point across without cracking wise.

I must be getting old because I hated every scene with fighting in Black Panther.

You're thinking of Irate Gamer, a clown of the highest order but never associated with Channel Awesome.

When JewWario committed suicide, Irate Gamer made a facebook post saying something along the lines of "the universe doesn't take kindly to those who cut their own time short" and that he feels bad for what JewWario has to now endure on the other side...or something along those lines.

Irate Gamer is definitely the type of person who would try to spin that into "I knew about his crimes", so I guess we'll see what happens.

Signs are actually pointing to Brad as apparently Erod lives under a rock and said he wasn't aware of the accusations a few days ago...

And he just posted a video about the 10th anniversary being cancelled this morning so you'd think he'd quit then.

I am kind of tickled at the thought of CA internal discussions getting reduced to a sombre old friend taking things very seriously and stressing out at every step down into the abyss and a grinning British troll nobody even realized was there a month ago. It would be like if Groucho were in the bunker with Hitler.

Yeah I'm pretty surprised, with Rob/Mike repeatedly going after people for leaning more on their youtube channel then on CA and yet they leave Larry alone. Again, maybe because they don't actually know who he is.

Oh yeah, he's quite the expert. He's written a book : https://www.amazon.com/Ghost-Huntin...ost+hunting+2.0

In which he claims to have turned the ghost hunting world on its head with a brand new science. The hubris in this book is amazing; he considers himself a pioneering, spiritual scientist on loving ghosts. He was recently at a con:

I had the best time at the paranormal convention yesterday. You fans kept me so busy I hardly had any time to go to the bathroom! It is so amazing talking to new people and watching them hit that "Aha" moment with my research.
Now the following comment is going to piss some people off but if you are offended, I'm sorry but you are NOT helping people, you are causing more suffering than you realize. I keep running into a huge problem in this field and one person that stuck out for me yesterday was this woman who had lost her daughter a year ago to a tragedic accident. All she wanted was answers and not some 'fluffy' canned responses that many seem to regurgitate at will. (I will not mention any names). She teared up many times during our intense conversation and after spending 20 minutes deprogramming her from all the "poo poo" these drat psychics and mediums keep shovelling to her, she for the first time really began to understand the deeper meaning behind this and walked away very comforted by what I had to say.
I know my spiritual journey isn't for the majority of my fans on here and I lose way more money than I will ever get back in this endeavor but these moments are exactly why I do this. I see a huge lack of anyone educating people on the ancient powerful teachings about the other side. Being able to make this kind
of an impact at these events makes it all worth it.

If you were able to get through that without your eyes glazing over, well you're a better person than I. Here's a little more detail into his technique:





In case you didn't catch it, he has spent HOURS studying this stuff. HOURS. Such a level of enlightenment allows him to make judgments such as:



He's also recently unretired his video game critic show, so I guess ghost chasing didn't pay the bills? I'm going to make myself stop typing now. I got most of this information from the irate gamer sucks blog, which I check in on from time to time. I know it's pretty pathetic to read a blog dedicated to hating on someone, but I can't help it. Irate Gamer is so captivating to me; so fascinating. I can't look away. If nothing else, it's a bit of a respite from the Channel Awesome drama, which just makes be feel bad
