    Wow, what idiots. When has a professional company ever posted a play-by-play run down of accusations made against them? I don't blame the contributors for leaving. Pure incompetence. Standard practice is not commenting on scandals for a reason.

    What has Guru Larry said his actual reasoning for staying is, though? Just because he wants to see how bad things will get? Or he doesn't care what happens to his image?

    Supposedly he's staying because Channel Awesome always tried to act like he didn't exist and didn't invite him to most events with everyone else so sticking around until Mike and the Walker bros. leaves is his way of saying "fuck you" to them.

    That's pretty hilarious, although if I were him, I would paint "I QUIT" on my chest in black letters and run around playing the 2001 Space Odyssey music out of a radio.

    It's not that surprising to me. The vast majority of internet start up companies like this where "friends help friends" end up corrupted and bankrupt in short order.

    Money destroys any and all friendships.

    It happened with no less than three book publishers I was involved with until I decided to only work with big names.

    Ah to be young and naive and buck the system.

    It's the most relevant and entertaining Channel Awesome has been in years. It's been quite the dumpster fire, absolutely beautiful, full of twists and turns, their version of Mr Rogers even turned out to be a groomer and rapist; amazing 10th anniversary.

    I discovered Count Jackula out of this debacle, he seems like a cool dude, certainly better than the miasma of alt right channels that jumped on the e-drama.

    Yeah, the al right of YT have been pretty waiting for CA to fuck up for a while.
    Sadly, they take up a lot of YT space and kind of get thrown into the ocean of content that is YouTube.

    I'm surprised that someone like Paul Joseph Watson hasn't stuck his dick in it tbh

    Why does Paul Joseph Watson always looks and sounds like he is about to cry?

    The existence of Soy opresses him, and gives him the depression he swears doesn't exist.

    It's ironic because those brain pills you advertises contain soy.
    Paul is a soy boy confirmed.

    (I've wanted to do a YT video on Paul for a while, but I'm not too sure which direction to take it in).

    I thought he turned out to be successful at suicide.

    The only one I ever really care about, and the reason I even ever found out about CA was Spoony. And now he disappeared completely. Hope he at least got a day job, or can sustain himself with a disability pension or something.

    He has a Patreon that gives him money for absolutely nothing at all. An electronic hobo.

    I seriously doubt he can survive with 500 dollars a month. I really hope he's got something else.

    Well, you might find the Mister Metokur video on Spoony interesting.

    Episode One: Doug Walker/Nostalgia Critic

    Episode 2: Spoony -

    Episode Three: Linkara

    Episode Four: Joe Vargas/Angry Joe

    TGWTG Episode 6: Nostalgia Chick/Todd In The Shadows (and Lindsay's DUI! - There's a reason why she doesn't drink so much in videos any more...)



    //Only worth watching if these guys were your heroes and you need to take them off their pedestals.

    Why 6 videos on this?

    Spoony is a really big disappointment because i really like his older videos (his Final Fantasy 13 videos are some of the most entertaining stuff to me). But then i guess all that money he was getting from Patreon at one point (i think it was 5000 bucks) got to his head and he decided to become a lazy asshole.

    I watched one of his streams post patreon, he spent more time bitching about having to play games and getting angry at the chat for very petty shit than actually being entertaining, it looked like he was having a full blown mental breakdown.
