An article by Salon on the Channel Awesome drama just went up. https://www.salon.com/2018/04/22/th...hannel-awesome/

It has comments from contributors and Doug Walker.

Dougís only (relevant) comment from the article, for those who are just looking for that because this has literally been the first thing heís said on the matter that actually has his name pinned to it directly:

Doug Walker posted:

"Communication has been an issue and we've admitted to that definitely. And I think as a business for over 10 years, we have made mistakes," Doug Walker told Salon. "We definitely have. And it's something we're always looking to make better and we're always looking to grow and with the people that we work in-house with in studio, I mean, I have yet to hear any complaints. And they always talk about how much fun it is to shoot there and we have yet to hear anything bad, so I hope that means we're improving."

Reading that ball-numbing statement from him makes me think either Michaud fed it to him beforehand and he quoted it to Salon verbatim, or he was actually the one who wrote the Our Response letter. Either way

Man that opening line has a surprisingly enormous load of bullshit

Channel Awesome-style internet criticism has never been anything remotely approaching detached.

When it comes to articles, Salon often lives up to its namesake: a place one goes to to get pampered. Even Vanity Fair has more teeth to it than Salon does these days.

More or less the same. The deliberate song mentions reminded me of the garbage I wrote.

Overall, it was a good video from Nicholson. She's really good at being very funny while also being slight.

Bad Game Hall Of Fame (Which is a blog that once a week or two it puts on a long piece about a specific Bad Game and analyses it while trying to be charitable about it, think of it as Happy Game Nerd if a bit more sardonic and can be experienced as long reads) has recently recommended this video by Nik Clay named Bad Games are Good, Actually. Given the pedigree, it's mostly a positive and warm romp Save for the Hatred and Ethnic Cleaning segment, and its not necessarily a negative for the video and he marks those with That Track From Resident Evil Director's Cut. You know the one.

At about 22:20 he talks about how evening lighting looks real nice. Pretty close in color palette to Teal and Coral, which Movies with Mikey gushed about in his Wick Chapter 2 episode.

Teal and coral just own?

This was a little disappointing, given that it's just a retelling of the original Jeff story with a self insert, and then the Slendermansion thing, which is a bog-standard setting in creepypasta fanfic.

business hammocks posted:

I wonder if it will be in such bad taste that it includes the real-life slenderman killer kids.

Probably not; they're not an especially attractive or romantic thing. This is emo girls, they want sexy murderers that love them and rebellion against a cruel world, not some unrelated kids killing each other.

I think at this point itís safe to say heís an incredibly lazy person. From his refusal to grow or develop his craft, to his utter lack of communication with people outside his inner circle, Doug just wants to coast as much as possible.

Thoroughly enjoyed this up until real car stuff started happening and my eyes kinda glazed over.

Does Star Fleet count as an anime? Cos the X=Bomber is the coolest-looking (anime) spaceship little Kay can remember and I think it belongs on a list somewhere. (The other coolest spaceship ever doesn't count )
