I personally don’t think Spoony should have been asked to leave TGWTG.

I think he should have taken a sabbatical for the sake of his mental health but I think they were over reacting slightly by asking him to leave. 


Since this pops up every few months or so, I guess it’s time to explain it again.

Spoony was not asked to leave nor did he get fired. He did get suspended for four weeks but during that time, decided that it was better for him to move on. He quit of his own accord due to reasons that he explained in his To Boldly Flee Part 1 Commentary. 


Whether if there were other things involved, this is Noah’s official word on the matter. It’s over and done with. He’s moved on and so have the rest of Channel Awesome.


I feel I need to say this and I know some people aren’t going to like it.  

About the whole “Cas is Dean’s Colette” thing.  I think people (in general) have focused WAY too much on this as a potential ongoing storyline.  The Destiel “B” plot was told through Cas’ POV last year, and it was told through tragedy of someone not being able to leave behind an old life (old teachings) and this produced a romantic partner left to grieve over their death.  Sound familiar?  I just described 9x23 through Cas’ POV…

Brief interruption in your Fairy Tail needs:

Am I the only one fucking tired of seeing Naruto ship wars on my dash?

No?  Didn’t think so.

Apparently it’s a very unpopular opinion to like Coldplay amongst some of the TGWTG producers.

Last year when Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys died, Nash on Radio Dead Air played a video of Chris Martin of Coldplay paying tribute to Adam by performing Fight For Your Right To Party on piano at a Coldplay concert. It was a very sweet tribute, and I said so in the chat, as did a few other people.

And we were all raked over the coals, and Mr. Martin himself rather pettily insulted for “ruining a great song” by, in order, multiple times over the course of the video, JesuOtaku, Oancitizen, and Todd in the Shadows. All three of them were incredibly rude about it in fact. So yeah, if I ever meet any of them at a con, and they ask me if I like Coldplay, I’m pleading the Fifth.

I always head cannoned movie!Obi-Wan was asexual. He’s fairly opaque over all in the OT, but as a young man in the PT he just seems sort of confused and embarrassed by Anakin’s interest in Padme.  It might have been because Anakin failed so hard at flirting, but it could be that, like me, he just didn’t get this attraction stuff.

Then the Clone Wars happened and Obi-Wan was a total flirt who apparently had an old flame and I was kind of upset.  I mean, flirty Obi-Wan was fun and didn’t mean he couldn’t be an ace, but the whole Satine thing really bothered me. It wasn’t that I thought that an ace man couldn’t date (I have an ex-boyfriend I’m still really close with after all), but that the creators specifically introduced Satine to make Obi-Wan more relatable. They were basically saying that being ace wasn’t relatable.  That it wasn’t valid. That I wasn’t valid. Well, f that.  My Obi-Wan will forever be an asexual flirt and Dave Filoni et. al. can take their relatable Casanova man-pain and shove it.

And while I’m on the subject of rants about the whole Obi-Wan gets an ex-girlfriend arc, it was clearly designed to make him look better in comparison to Anakin.  Obi-Wan could let go of love and Anakin couldn’t and that’s why he’s so much better, even if he does end up disobeying orders to go and rescue her.  Whatever. It all goes back to the idea that sex is inherently wrong and abstaining makes you better or purer or whatever.  As someone who has been fetishized and placed on a somewhat creepy pedestal specifically because I’m not interested in sex, I find that exceptionally problematic.

Unpopular Opinion Time...

I’m a straight Steven Universe fan and I didn’t read Vidalia and Amethyst as having romantic feelings. I read their relationship to each other as an awesome and enriching friendship. At this point in time, with what we know about the characters, I think my reading of things is just as valid as those who are shipping the two. For reference, this is what I believe: Garnet: obviously a lesbian relationship. Pearl’s feelings for Rose: obviously romantic. Amethyst and Vidalia: could easily be either. I’d rather my opinion not be dismissed as more “gals being pals” nonsense. I don’t think their bond being “merely” a friendship diminishes the clear admiration and love they share for each other. 

unpopular opinion of the week: trans women (Male to Female) are not women. you’ve felt this–you’re not a bigot for thinking this.

is biology destiny? no. should you be rude to MTF trans people for no reason? no.

but think about this….I was vehemently anti-”transphobia” once. I ate that rhetoric up.

but notice how all the people you read about in the media are men transitioning to become women, NOT the other way around. men are invading female spaces.

we can’t talk about our periods, our vaginas, our uteruses, our experiences with menses and childbirth and menopause without being called transphobic. yet these are things that make us women–have always made us women.

and ask yourself this, as an exercise. if our anatomy doesn’t make us women, what does? is it the way we are raised? MTF trans people do not have uteruses, nor are they raised as girls. they simply believe they are women. why? there is significant scientific evidence that the feeling of being trans may be linked to psychological causes. (link)

and many of these MTF trans people seem to take pride in embracing the gender roles that have oppressed women for centuries. emphasizing (for themselves): lots of makeup, shaping their bodies, being flirty, “feminine,” housewifely and down to submit to men. why is this? maybe because–ask a man–would a straight man want to have sex with someone who is not biologically female?

no. a man who is interested in women does not desire sex with MTF trans people. and despite what some “activists” might say, this doesn’t make him “transphobic.” it makes him a heterosexual man.

in fact, i was first converted to being a so-called “TERF” (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist) by reading the experiences of many lesbians, who reject trans MTF people as love or sex partners and are then threatened and ridiculed by those same trans people. and it made me think: we need to protect lesbians at all costs. lesbians are women who are into women, aka what the patriarchy HATES most of all. feminism is for women, but it is especially for lesbians. and if lesbians are questioning the legitimacy of MTF trans people coming into women’s spaces, then we ALL need to be questioning this movement, too.

probably an unpopular opinion after this weeks chapter but…

I don’t know about you guys but I was left completely satisfied with this weeks magi spoilers, everyone now hates Sinbad hes adding fuel to the fire and digging his own grave yet I can’t help but admire him and what hes done, sure a lot of the characters where upset ect. but I wasn’t I love my shady asshole of a husbando and I thought what he did was actually rather clever, giving Alibaba false hope and using his own words against him was a dick move but it was a clever one

Long live Sinbad!

Also I didn’t see any mention of Ja’far and we haven’t seen him in a while I hope hes okay :/

The first unpopular opinion that comes to mind is probably pretty tame, but I don't hate Keffer. Yeah, yeah, I know he was foisted on JMS as a more "traditional" character, and it's silly that he just shows up in the credits out of nowhere, but he doesn't bug me at all. I actually get into is Shadow obsession (hey, I'm a sucker for the Cassandra characters), and think he ends up playing a pretty important role, plus he has some cute interactions with the rest of the cast.

Unpopular Opinions

I don’t think Claudia Christian is a good actress, and it ruined the character of Ivanova for me. I don’t even think I can articulate why I don’t like her, it just always seemed to be a pacing thing with her delivery of the lines. Like a lot of the lines seemed like after thoughts, or forced, and her voice was really monotone. I don’t really get the whole IVANOVA IS GOD thing. She was a good officer, I liked the way she got things done, but that was it.

I also felt like it was a lot of “tell, not show,” with her characteristics. She’s Russian…(because she tells us she is). She’s Jewish…(it only shows up in one episode). And so on. 

So yeah, probably one of the most unpopular opinions there is. (Well, and also I hate the G'Kar/Londo ship.)
