TGWTG's Community Blogs.
Yo everyone, Hyrit here. (https://www.youtube.com/user/Hyrit/videos)
I already asked before, but I want to have some more answers.
For those that missed my last post: Im a student Interaction Design and to graduate I need to make a community app for a certain target audience. I chose the TGWTG community because you guys are a joy....
I really think that there should be a section of fanarts of TGWTG fanart there a lot of fanarts out there that the people of this community should discover
Greetings from the Reckoning Reviewer here. Since it is my birthday here, I decided to share a little story. I currently don't have any ideas for blogs at the moment, so this is all I can come up with.
It all began two years ago. A friend of mine, Dan was a huge fan of the Nostalgia Critic, always making references to him whenever he wanted. One day he sent me a link to one of Doug's videos, which was his Patch Adams review. I decided to watch the review, and found myself really interested. It was a funny and clever review, so being curious I searched for more of his reviews, looking through some of his funniest moments, getting a lot of the jokes my friend was referring to, and overall, I spent a lot of my time watching Nostalgia Critic. Then I was inspired to be a critic myself, so I made this account on the site, and have been a hardcore Nostalgia Critic fan ever since.
So it's really interesting how one video instantly got me into Doug's work. It also gave me a new outlook on films in general. So I owe a lot to my friend Dan who sent the Patch Adams review, and made me a fan. This contributed to me becoming a critic. So I have to say thank you Doug Walker. You were a huge part about who I am today, and why I want to be a critic.
We have big plans to bring a big feature finale on November 23rd to the Criticzilla series not only celebrating 60 years of Godzilla but also geekdom as it can be argued Godzilla truly gave birth to modern day Geekdom. It will be a non profit charitable movie, and we are looking into a charity to support at this moment.
This is where you come in. We want the largest cast of critics to be in this film from all over the world. You don't have to travel or be a pretty good actor just enjoy creating something unique and exciting, enjoy a good laugh and have fun. If you're interested leave a message here and I will get back to you. Tell me about what you review, your style and give me relevant links for me to research and write for your critic effectively.
I look forward to hearing from you all.
Like most people on this site, I first saw JewWario (Justin Carmical) on Kickassia, the 2nd Year Anniversary Special and thought he was one of the funnier characters who gave one of the best performances.
Shortly after that, I started checking out his "You Can Play This" series and became an instant fan. I was heavily into collecting and import gaming from 2003-2007, so I could easily relate to everything Justin went through in his videos in order to play import games. Even though I haven't been importing games due to work and paying rent, his videos brought me back to a simpler time when I had the entire world ahead of me and more disposable income.
Last year at E3 2013, Justin was the first "web celebrity" I approached at the convention. He was waiting in line to to play Ducktales Remastered at the Capcom Booth and I caught him on camera saying "JewWario's playing Ducktales!" and he laughed and smiled. I was so incredibly nervous to talk to him, but after 10 seconds, it literally felt like we knew each other for years. I told him I was huge fan of his work and we also talked about how excited we were for Ducktales Remastered. I felt comfortable enough to give him a Battle Geek Plus business card and we went our separate ways. Thanks to Justin, I was able to feel more comfortable around the convention and was able to meet more people I was a fan of.
Justin had a true, genuine, friendliness in a way where he talked to you like he was your friend for years rather than just a fan. When I heard the terrible news that he took his own life, I literally felt like I lost a good friend who I had known for years. We may never know the real reason why things happened the way they did, but the fact is that Justin left behind a legacy that inspired and entertained people.
Justin Carmical, a well-liked contributor on renowned website That Guy With The Glasses known as JewWario, died this past Thursday. While I did not watch many of his personal videos, I saw him in other people’s works and he seemed like a very fun and likable person. Many of the site’s other contributors talk about what a joy he was to work with. But this past Thursday, for whatever reason,he shot himself at age 42 in his bathroom.
I cannot judge Justin because I don’t know what kind of pain he was going through. At my very core, though, I feel that if I had gotten famous on the internet and had been picked up by That Guy With The Glasses, I could have done something, talked to him maybe. I know what it’s like to wrestle with thoughts of not going on and even though I don’t like them, those thoughts are hard to truly banish as you go forward in life. So perhaps, if I had gotten to know him earlier, I might have been able to help his wife talk him down, maybe even give him a perspective on what it’s like to stand at the edge, looking down into the abyss and thinking of jumping. But I can’t know for sure.
In truth, it hits close to home because this is another example of a person on the internet that I’ve respected falling into a dark place and I can’t help but wonder if it could happen to me too. I don’t know what it is to be famous outside of a small community, so I don’t know what all that exposure does to a person. I imagined that as long as I knew there were people that cared about me and fans that loved me, I would be fine and happy. But Justin was one of the most beloved people on the site and that didn’t help him. I honestly don’t know how I would cope if the world just came crashing down on me....
