When I get out of work I can do the idiot's guide to channel awesome and what each person does.
So, I’m a fan of this guy called Nostalgia Critic. He’s an online reviewer I’ve been watching since 2009. His show became part of my weekly routine and I became a fan. Through him I saw two other shows that influenced me a lot and wouldn’t exist at all without him. They are Atop The Fourth Wall and Nostalgia Chick. Because Nostalgia Critic decided to do what he does, we got many people also wanting to make videos. Like how Little Kuriboh is looked to as starting the abridged series fandom and trend, this guy started the internet video reviewer as most people know it.Well, the show ended through one of the anniversary movies called To Boldly Flee. The site he and other started are filled with reviewers, comedians and creators and every year they make a movie. This is the last movie.Why does it mean so much to me that an internet show ended? Why do I have “the feels” as Tumblr folks would put it. Why do I care so much? Well, why not care. As my roomie said, it doesn’t matter and putting a distinction that you can’t be moved by something like this is like saying it’s low art. Art, film, comics, internet shows, if it moves you, it moves you.Also, it helped that To Boldly Flee was a great miniseries and was the best written.It’s just that his character has a great arc through those movies and it ended great. There’s a point where your character has an end. A point where there isn’t anything else you could do. This was the case.Doug Walker is an awesome guy. He got me into this part of the internet. Honestly, That Guy With The Glasses is just another fandom of mine and that I wish I could be more active in. (As Viga anyway and not as another identity. Maybe soon.)So, I guess to wrap this up, thanks for creating the fandom. Thanks for the site of awesome talent. Thanks for existing. Thanks for inspiring and creating the two reviewers I look up to most. Thanks for laughs. Thanks for entertainment. Thank you, Critic. Thank you, Doug.I’ll be following you to see what you come up with next.See you, Space Cowboy.You, know, because canonically you’re in space. :P
I say this without exaggeration of any kind: Oancitizen's review of Melancholia is the most intelligent, heartfelt, sad, hopeful, and genuinely moving piece of video on the entire site.
