Critiques

Monster High OC - 50 Ft. Woman's Child by NanaRamos

I don't normally do critiques through DA, but I thought I would copy what I posted on my tumblr for you to see :) Jesus, this has to be ...

Well I don't know how many of you actually pay attention to Channel Awesome (formerly That Guy With the Glasses), but there have been some rather underhanded things going on. It's very unfortunate because I was and still am a fan of the Nostalgia Critic and many others on the site, but there definitely seems to be some issues that have been going on.
I've noticed this for a while (ever since To Boldly Flee actually). Ever since then, I really didn't pay that much attention to the that guy with the glasses website. Like many fans of individual people on that site, I would rather go to their individual blip pages and watch their content there. Doug Walker, Lindsay Ellis, Lewis, Allison, Phelan, Kyle, etc. I more or less avoided the actual website whenever I could. I couldn't put my finger on it, but something just stopped feeling right.

Recently I learned about several producers suddenly leaving the site. Now, when it comes to Lindsay and Kyle leaving, I think their departure was cordial and merely a product of bad timing due to the current drama. No, the ones we're talking about would be Allison (Obscurus Lupa) and Phelan (Phelous).

I had learned that Allison had apparently been fired (if you can call it that when you're not actually being paid by the company you work for) by the good people from Channel Awesome, and rather unceremoniously at that. There were some issues with her using advertisements in the middle of her videos due to not making enough money to pay the bills and then the aggregates not wanting anyone to advertise using patreon as a secondary method of income (calling it "e-begging" when that's not at all what it is and calling it a "slap in the face"). Later on she noticed that Brad had a whole video about patreon and when she pushed on that, they said that she shouldn't even bring that up because she asked when they were "on the fence" about the subject of patreon. (as Allison put it "slap to the face" = "on the fence")
They then fired her because she was away from her computer for 15 minutes when they wanted to have a meeting. So apparently that's all it takes to get canned at Channel Awesome.

Phelan had already been planning on leaving the site for a while now due to issues of his working on the special effects of To Boldly Flee. This was the first time he was actually getting PAID for his hard work, and instead of going to him to ask him about the work he's doing or to tell him what they think would do better, they were gossiping about thinking he's "half-assing" it. They even tried to get Welshy to covertly check on him to see if he was actually doing his work. Welshy wasn't going to do that though because he's good friends with Phelous and straight up told him what they were trying to pull. This put a sour taste in Phelan's mouth so he was already planning on leaving. After what happened to Allison (at least his girlfriend. If they've married by now I'm not aware of it, but I don't think that's the case), that was obviously the final straw and he was forced to unceremoniously leave the site as well.

It's pretty sad to see what's going on to a group that I once loved so much. Allison and Phelan were two of my favorites on the site so I'm glad they're at least continuing their videos on their own at phelous.com I would like people to go and support them as much as possible! They have terrific content. My favorites from Phelous have to be his bootleg zones reviews where he talks about really crappy bootlegs of things like ninja turtle toys or barbie dolls.
Someone finally brought it in. *mine!*
1. Type in your name followed by "the hedgehog" on deviantart.
2. Begin to cry.
3. Continue crying.
Ahm making a pretty pretty unicorn!!!!
Mike Huckabee: Beyonce releases obnoxious and toxic mental poison that needs to be confined to her bedroom. How dare Obama let his children listen to her!

(granted if it's rock music like Ted Neugent with songs about making the "pussy purr" he'll just fucking play the song with Ted live and that's just wholesome entertainment!)
