The Mistakes of Doug Walker – The Channel Awesome Legacy | TRO

The Right Opinion: The Mistakes of Doug Walker – The Channel Awesome Legacy | TRO

 

Another view behind the curtain of CA, including some lessons and the Legacy.

Ok… Let’s Talk About The Channel

The COUNCIL OF GEEKS speaks. They really didn’t want to talk about this, and to be fair nobody asked them to. But it’s been weighing on their mind and they kind of need to just vent it out.

#ChangeTheChannel: What Happened with Channel Awesome?

Here’s what’s going down with Channel Awesome, why the Google Doc was made, and a little bit about what’s happened since.

Apologies for turning the comments off, but it’s a bit crazy and overwhelming right now. Thanks for understanding.

Channel Awesome Retrospective #3| Jesu Otaku ft: NobleAbsinthe

✔️Discord (be chill): https://discord.gg/Zy9GQ2H
Channel Awesome Retrospective Episode 4 Bennet The Sage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzshjxNuBIk
NobleAbsinthe’s Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/boxedego

NobleAbsinthe and I are collabing to bring to you a retrospective series on every contributor at Channel Awesome (formerly known as TGWTG.com). The reviewing community on YouTube owes a lot to guys like Doug Walker and James Rolfe for propelling many of the YouTube “celebrities” we see today. Channel Awesome also serves as decent folklore about the early days of YouTube. Also, since there wasn’t any other YouTube channel with an extensive compendium of these contributors; we thought it would be a fun project.

Today’s episode is on Jesu Otaku, one of the few anime producers on Channel Awesome.

May god have mercy on his soul…

Our uploads will alternate between our two channels, so please feel free to subscribe to Extramana’s Youtube channel as well to get the whole series.

*The videos may not be in true chronological order, but aim to cover all contributors.

The Ballad of Mike Michaud and Channel Awesome || Hamilton Parody (You’ll Be Back)

Apologies for having to dampen some of the backing track near the beginning to avoid copyright, despite parody being fair use. Please check out the Soundcloud download of this track for the fully unaltered version.
https://soundcloud.com/marzgurlproductions/the-ballad-of-mike-michaud-and-channel-awesome-hamilton-parody-youll-be-back

If you haven’t heard the original song from Hamilton that this is parodying (You’ll Be Back), you should listen to that first. The song is a “love letter” from King George to the United States just before going into the battle for America’s independence. After you’ve heard that song, come back and listen to this one.

And also @arkle on Twitter, who suggested they were able to picture Mike Michaud singing “You’ll Be Back”.

For anyone who doesn’t understand what’s going on, check out our document detailing a slew of things that we as ex-Channel Awesome producers experienced from management during our time with Channel Awesome:
