Because of this kerfuffle I've actually started watching Larry's videos, and they're actually pretty good for list style videos.

That's a very good question! And a pretty good video answer.

I remember reading the book ages ago, and while a lot of the details escape me now the scene that's stuck with me was when Hazel nearly convinces Woundwort that they could join forces and work together, and for a brief moment Woundwort could actually see peace as an option before his pride took over again. I dunno why but that's the part I remember the most.

Also looking up on wiki to make sure I had the names right I found out there was a TV series that ran for three seasons.

Dunno.

He's said he's gonna stay, but so have others during the course of the week and they've all left, typically after trying to talk with CA themselves.

Of everybody that's been on the site, he's probably the least impacted by leaving CA due to having his own site and video archives. But it's up to the man himself, not for us to decide for him.

That's when you know you've watched a good review, when it actively makes you want to watch something yourself.

Do it.

Also, the team who made Watership Down made another animated film also based on a book by Richard Adams called Plague Dogs.

Serious warning: if Watership Down is a difficult watch DO NOT RESEARCH PLAGUE DOGS ANY FURTHER!

Alternatively, if you enjoy weeping like a baby, go right ahead and track it down.

When I bought the thing it took me almost 6 months to work up the guts to watch it, coz I knew what it was going in - even though I was never that hard affected by Watership Down.

So Blockbuster Buster released a video about leaving. Turns out he knew as little as Joe about this stuff because he generally stays off social media.

Also apparently the only one who would talk to him during his time there was Linkara, to the point where he found out about a bunch of the big events with the fans. (The one big event he was actually a part of was planned by Linkara).

Here's his video

I watched that video yesterday, I have to say that Erod has earned alot of respect from me because of it. It's really just a guy with a simple dream wanting to make people have fun. And Linkara keeps proving himself as a stand-up dude.

So uh, not to interrupt Channel Awesome fun times, but there's a guy named nerdSlayer I've been watching who has a fun series he does called "Death of a Game." Typically it's been about how this or that MMO game flamed out but there's been other stuff, such as the history of Visceral Games and Troika Games. I haven't watched all of his videos but the ones I have, have been enjoyable.

The most recent one was on FireFall.

I loved The Plague Dogs when I was a child. There was a van that would come round and rent out videos must have rented it over one hundred times.

I don't want to the funpolice, especially considering Rule 2 of my own thread; but Guru Larry isn't 100% clean. I guess that's the best way to put his (actually) hilarious behaviour wrt being the last CA contributor and his other behaviour in the past.

Have his intros always been this tryhard? I usually skip them because I'm here for the content, not the stupid skits, but I ended up sitting through that one and it's infuriatingly stupid and overwrought.

ETA:
Holy poo poo all these things are unfunny bullshit. This is bad even for Nick Nocturne.

Erod always came off to me like he was just a super excitable person doing what he loves, same as Angry Joe.

He supported GamerGate. Generally from what I've gleamed of Larry, he's a bit of an anti-PC conservative-ish person.

Oh most certainly. Still leaves a bit of a bad taste in my mouth though. At the very least, all of the jokes about Larry being one of the only people still left on CA has given me some laughs to stave off the depressing feelings from the drama.

As a distraction from CA drama, has anybody seen Chadtronic? My kids (11 and 13) watch him and he gets a couple of good laughs from me every now and then. His videos are mostly comedy reactions to news reports, old training video, and other things. He’s got very good production quality on his videos. Here’s a couple of videos.

Anyone remember the weird Nine lives of Garfield movie? IIRC it had a sequence pretty obviously inspired by plague dogs.

I've never posted myself in the thread because, well, I'm not incredible and I'm also not a critic but I do make a Something Awful history video every once in a while and I'd like to start doing it more often. I've covered Kevin Havens, David Hockey, and here's my latest video on Sonic in the Search for Love.
