Recently, FilmBrain re-posted his crossover review of Tekken with Spoony and said he'd love to do the prequel with him.

Not gonna happen, but it's a nice sentiment.

Make it happen, make 2018 the year when Spoony was made great again.

Question.

Now that CuriousCat is imploding because it is run by psychopaths-- what is the actual benefit of that site? I know it lets people ask a question and someone to give a public answer buuuut-- how is that different from, say, a forum, or Quote-Tweeting a question and giving an answer?

What actual tools and benefits does CC give to both the people asking the question, and those answering them?

Realtalk, Curious Cat ISN'T just a website for Final Fantasy 14 players to post their catgirl erotic role play dating profile?!

Sure, she was allowed to leave (but we fired her) and she could go pursue other work (after we forced her to sign a contract that would give her severance pay)


It's also not dismissing anything. The NC IP is owned by Channel Awesome itself? Okay but who is the majority shareholder of Channel Awesome? It's still Michaud

The crazy thing is, isn't this provable cause for once there actually IS a paper trail? Like these are the things that there was actually contracts and signed paperwork for, can't Holly just bring up the dismissal paperwork and the non compete clause paperwork? Assuming she didn't toss them, though I wouldn't blame her if she got rid of them.



Honestly I'm more surprised about this, I thought Sage would have left earlier.

I kinda wish we were privy to the response CA made to each contributor who left. I'm curious if CA tried to persuade people to stay or if it was just a "kay" response. It really seems like they're attempting to only make themselves look good, which is really looking like they're focused solely on the youtube channel and Nostalgia Critic.

He'll lose because apparently nothing can separate Brad Jones from Doug Walker. A real disappointment; I was a fan of the guy but if he hasn't severed ties by now that doesn't make him look very good...

Yeah like I get that he still wants to remain friends with the Walkers... Its not like leaving the site is going to taint the friendship. You can still be friends, just disassociate from the website.

Like, at this point I'm legit surprised that Michaud hasn't booted Larry off the site in a fit of rage. Because that would kind of rule, to be honest; Larry making the fractional remnant of Channel Awesome so mad at his in-house dunking that they sever from him

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.

Apparently Brad might be locked in due to the stupid game show contract. He's removed CA from his own site and is obviously trying to distance himself as much as possible.

If he is trying to do what he can, I'll consider that in the spirit of my toxx. Ultimately I wanted Brad to distance from CA, and I admit to having a personal... "stake"? Basically I have once tried to look past a bad friend and try to make everyone happy and I was frustrated seeing Brad make the mistake I made. But if he is going to do everything else that he can to get away, I'm not gonna smugly go "see, he couldn't do it " when a contract can be involved.

Showing examples of bad people on the other side (and potted plants for some reason) does not negate the existence of bad people on your side. They arenít as prominent because, unlike the right-wingers, they hold no real power in the US and are normally limited to just making GBS threads all over Tumblr and Twitter, but crazy/stupid leftists do exist.

I know what the plants thing is, its spikes that are put around areas to ensure that homeless people don't sleep there.

Some of his nitpicking can be fun, like when he pulls apart "non-supernatural" horror movies for characters that teleport or other ridiculous contrivances, but sometimes it's way off. His review of a quiet place had a big bit on a kid drowning in a grain elevator, which is very much a real thing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grain_entrapment and can be found with a ten second google search. He finds some gems but a lot of them are CinemaSins level "flaws".

I did like his way older videos, namely World War Z cause he brought up inconsistencies in the video. Like the fact they reuse a line but add an echo to it, or the fact there is a scene where you see a guy point a gun out of a window and the crowd reacts as if the guy shot his gun but there is no effects (muzzle flash and sound) to correlate with it. Honestly this was something I liked about early Cinema Sins, I was interested in seeing actual inconsistencies (Jurassic Park having 2 parked jeeps as the helicopter is arriving to the island, then when the helicopter lands and they unload 2 jeeps come driving up as if they weren't already there)

Then I fell off cause his videos would come out really slow, it took 3 months to do his Amusement videos. Not as in 3 months of work was put into it and they were all released together, but the first video started and the last video was posted 3 months later. And some of the jokes were... it felt like padding. You took 3 months and had this much padding? The first video had this bit where a guy realizes his car keys were taken, and it devolves to the the bad guy mugging while the driver fondles the ignition and looks back to his tied up girlfriend and it goes back and forth and back and forth. Could've been funny for like 10 seconds, but it feels like it lasts a minute. Then there is that bit with the sandwich making....

it's just weird that even for his passion project he didn't get professional grade equipment despite renting out space to film his new show. and why kill the critic? just keep making the videos (not like they take a lot of time and effort to produce) to make sure you got the benjamins rolling in.

I mean, I don't LP full time or anything close to a job. But even I bought a blue yeti (after buying a blue snowball!), I put more money into audio recording equipment for my hobby that has made me zero dollars then Doug Walker has spent across 10 years and possibly making a million with.

And its not like a blue yeti is top tier recording equipment, but its higher up then a freaking on board mic.
