Episode 9 AngryJoe: it-my.com/watchvideo/video-yvQAQxSjzXk.html
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 IT-my owes a lot to guys like Doug Walker and James Rolfe for propelling many of the IT-my “celebrities” we see today. Channel Awesome also serves as decent folklore about the early days of IT-my. Also, since there wasn’t any other IT-my channel with an extensive compendium of these contributors; we thought it would be a fun project.
Today’s episode is on Linkara, one of the few comic book 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 IT-my channel as well to get the whole series.

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

    How the hell was she attempting to be edgy while making a video on her own personal experience with abortion? I'm pretty sure the content went right over your head, you simpleton

    The concept of writing about her own abortion was sick? This is a bizarre opinion, and obtuse. People can make art exploring emotional and personal topics - that’s kind of the whole thing with art. Weird hearing you deride her work when this video was such low quality in comparison

    I honesty think the channel awesome and new work of hers is reall entertaining. Sadly, people grow apart and theres always internal conflict in any workplace. Ill have to go and watch that abortion movie, but I think she has every right to talk about her abortion experience if thats what she wants to do.

    why is this video so disliked? i don't find anything discussed here offensive but then again i only found out about lindsay ellis through her standalone channel i had no idea about the nostalgia critic or any of those people. is it just the NobleAbsinthe dude? bc that guy DOES sounds kinda up his own ass

    I really like her but she's a typical overly privileged leftist who's 38 or 40 years old and ages lucky she ever met nostalgia critic . There's time of smart women out there, she is not remarkable at all if you knew us. Worse still, she's another conformist leftist and pro cancel culture. What amazes me is that people will admire and listen to her when a lot of women say the same things she dies, yet no one listed to us lol, cause we don't have a platform which got big from nostalgia critic and spoony , etc. But she's another 40 year old USA east coast liberal arts college leftist. How do you think.she met Nostalgia critic ? ... and Why are others still unaware of this?

      You repeatedly using the word “leftist” tells me all I need to know about the nature of your comment and you. You are SO much worse than what you’re describing for being unaware that you’re just as insufferable and politically obvious as you accuse her of being. Yikes!

    chez was pronounced shay and it means "at the home" so chez apocalypse meant "apocalypse at home." You could have Googled it instead of making yourself sound like a fool.

    • Marta Tarasiuk
      Marta Tarasiuk

      @Joe Jordan Well, judging from the fact that their official site described Chez Apocalypse as "a media criticism site with a deliberately vague name", I'll say that in this case there never was such thing as "a decent translation" and everyone was supposed to interpret the meaning in their own way.

    • Joe Jordan
      Joe Jordan

      No, a decent translation should go along the lines of "in the house of apocalypse" or something like that. Chez doesn't just mean "at the home" but "at the home of".

    She applied for the n chick job which had rules conditions and standards that she chose to be apart of If you get political and public on either side you are subject to critique from the public She made a short film and put it out there She is subject to critique Hell she has spent the majority of her career critiquing others and being political She shouldn't give what she can't take

  • Frances O'Darcy
    Frances O'Darcy

    In an analogy to Ellis's love for Lord Of The Ring, Nostalgia Chick is like The Hobbit where Lindsay's new content is like The Lord Of The Rings. Nostalgia Chick is simplistic but charming because they are fun videos while Lindsay Ellis is much more mature and philosophical.

    Her recent content is great! She's intelligent, funny, and can be silly without seeming pedantic. She expresses genuine joy over the books and movies she loves (like Lord of the Rings,) without dismissing objective criticism (The Hobbit.) Her humor is deadpan, and I guess that sarcastic delivery is what sounds 'monotone' or 'condescending' to ExtraMana. I'm not sure why anyone would dismiss her content entirely as 'white noise,' instead of just saying "she's not my cup of tea."

  • One third of a brain

    How was The A Word political? It was an emotional piece of how she dealt with a deeply personal experience that is rarely talked about, hence why making a film made sense. The fact people in the comments are angry over gamergate, a thing only morons care about - same with Anita like who cares if a woman said things you dont like about games? Sorry but everyone in the comments, and this video, just seems like you have a personal issue with her based on sexism.

    Lindsey is the best thing that came out of channelshit. I loved her lurch leftward and the fact that she doesn’t give a fuck about right wing dipshits. Her videos will only seem condescending to dimwits.

    Her time on CA was cringey, but admittedly not her fault. She clearly began to have her own voice once she had a fanbase, and Doug hated that. She didn't deserve to be treated like that, simply for wanting to be her own self. However, once she was given the reins, it was clear that she was rather... hypocritical. She began attacking other women. She began to infantalise YA authors, to the point of making up one of her own, using someone else's photo, as a joke. It was gross. And she still defends it. Then, she finally was set free from CA - and she continued to be up and down with her essays. One thing she never took seriously was sexual assault. Her favourite movie is Showgirls, and when she jumped onto the GoT ship, that rape-apologist in her grew larger and larger, and the irony grew grosser and grosser, into sickening hypocrisy. CA was rampant with sexual assault, and yes, she fought hard and at the risk of her career to do it - but she still has yet to apologise for her double-faced bullshit. Once she grows up, once she actually grows up, maybe I'll be able to stomach her, better. Maybe once she moves away from rape culture, stops consuming and defending it so much, I'll come back. If she simply stopped being a part of that culture, I'll come back. But for now, she's... too much. Too hypocritical. And I'm tired of it.

      I got mad when she made people who dislike film pentalogies like Twilight and Bayformers look like hypocritical haters. So yeah, I think it’s safe to say that while I like her roles in Todd in the Shadows videos and fee like her defence towards some films like The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Kirk Wise and Gary Triusdale are well-thought out along with her review on Rent starring a Frozen actor, I do feel like there are times when she can make people feel less than free to have their own opinions with her stern tone of voice.

      Stray7

      Whenever has taking a stance on abortion ever *not* been considered political? Even the most neutral take on the subject brings debate, vitriol, and cultural warfare. People's brains shut down when topics that touch on their core values come up as part of the discourse.

    This video seams to be watched by Lindsey haters only. Jeez. I like Lindsey. I think she's great in every way. Your not like Lindsey would be valid if you all gave a good reason and not just "oh I don't like her personality" common guys, be serious. You know, it's OK to not like someone. But give a reason. A real reason. Like, I like her cause she's not afraid to take risks and be in your face with details, and opinion.

  • Chris Hype
    Chris Hype

    I sorta lost interest in Lindsay Ellis when it seemed like every single review she did had a “Ive been to film school” tangent thrown in. As if she needed her words to have validity because they don’t stand on their own.

    • c17sam90
      c17sam90

      That’s because she came from a vantage point of film academia where you taught about script structure etc. And yes having that eduction makes it very hard watching a lot of commercial films because you know the flaws with them instantly

      Chris Hype

      Francesco Birsa Alessandri It’s not a bad thing until it becomes full on rants and your entire argument is based on going to film school. Did you ever see Lindsay’s “10 Guilty Pleasures” list? Almost every single choice was followed by “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t like this. I went to film school”. We get it, and we are proud of you seeking higher education. You don’t have to keep reminding us.

    • Francesco Birsa Alessandri
      Francesco Birsa Alessandri

      oh yeah, because giving actual context for your adfirmations and revealing what informed your deductions and opinions is a bad thing... Also, having been to school is bad, i guess.

  • Akihito007
    Akihito007

    Nope I don't respect someone who MURDERS her own unborn daughter with the excuse of "it conflicted with me going to film school" then makes a self indulgent movie about it in order to excuse her complete selfishness. I hate her leftist, sjw West Coast politics and that she CONTINUES to bash the South and East TN, where she grew up and where I was also born and still live. But funny how she got drunk, assaulted her family and got arrested over the holidays in her hometown of Kingsport, TN and when she was arrested tried to break the cop windows by continually kicking them and bashing her head against the cage. Guess she's a baby murderer AND a lousy drunk!

  • Bridget McConaughy

    Eh, I'm in the base who hated her channel awesome work, but love her post CA content. Turns out her heart wasn't in the CA stuff, and she didn't understand that she was expected to into a 5 year role that frankly was envisioned as a female version of somebody else's I.P. So it makes sense that she lacked passion for it. Her new stuff seems like the content she should always have been making. Her video essays typically don't go the route of thing bad because politics. The interviews she conducted for her hobbit interview took the politically charged nature of the New Zealand union colloapse, and brought out the human side of the issue. If ya'll can't watch her because of her voice or you find her condescending, I mean you're good. There's some superficial things that keep me away from other creators. But I don't think that her more recent content gets a fair shake in these comments. Overall, I'd say her content is the most improved out of all the CA contributors.

      @Bakamatsu - GojiFan1993 Archive The only issue I have is when ungrateful ppl like her bites the hand that fed them, and then pretends that they became a success on their own, when the proof is all over the internet that they didn't. And what is your problem with Doug? You've mentioned him several times, but hardly anyone who have left CA has said a negative word about him specifically. The worst thing I heard said about him was that he didn't feed ppl who were on the set of one of his parody films. That's it. Doug is hardly the reason why ppl left.

      Bakamatsu - GojiFan1993 Archive

      @Kool Keith Productions lmao you have too many issues with someone leaving behind a dumpster fire. C.A. doesn't deserve mentioning. Doug is going down the shitter and everyone else that associates themselves with him will too unless they wise up like Lindsey did. Also she chose that job because she was a young and naive fangirl. Good on her for stretching creatively

    • Kool Keith Productions
      Kool Keith Productions

      @Bakamatsu - GojiFan1993 Archive I'm sure if someone's first job was at Mcdonald's and they later became a billionaire, they would mention it ALL the time for 2 reasons. 1, to show others there right now that they don't have to be ashamed of a hard days work, even if it's not exactly the type of work you wanna be doing. And 2, to TRULY show how ppl can grow and evolve. The fact that she can't even mention their name doesn't show that she has grown. It shows she's childish, petty and immature, which judging by the criticism C.A. gets, would ironically make her a perfect candidate to work with them. Maybe that's why she was chosen as the Chick to begin with.

    • Bakamatsu - GojiFan1993 Archive
      Bakamatsu - GojiFan1993 Archive

      @Kool Keith Productions it's in the past. She's becoming more professional and has moved well beyond the lowbrow nature of Channel Awesome. Theres no point in bringing it up anymore and why would she? The environment behind the scenes of Channel Awesome was toxic and run by an autistic man-child (Doug Walker) she's making a name for herself on her own and not by being a dickless Nostalgia Critic. You don't see people bragging about McDonald's being their start because its all about what you're up to now.

    • Kool Keith Productions
      Kool Keith Productions

      @Bakamatsu - GojiFan1993 Archive That's right, ppl do grow. But do they have to grow into azzholes? She won't even mention their name anymore, but C.A. MADE her. Everything she has is thanks to them, so despite things not working out, would it kill her to show some class and just acknowledge what they did for her career?

  • Crazelord91
    Crazelord91

    Didn't care for her much as NC, and especially after her strong support of Anita Sarkisian (not because I'm anti feminist but bc Anita specifically is an oportunist who knows nothing about the mediums she covers) but I love her content as Lindsay Ellis now. Besides for the video quaility and writing, I think she has really found a way to speak about feminist theory in a more informative and less condescending way, and it's good to have someone besrable on that side just to offer differentiating opinions. She has made some mistakes publically back in the day but she's seemed to mature exponentially and makes some of the best researched and critically written analysis videos on IT-my now.

  • ggn3

    It wasn't until Lindsay started shifting from being a female clone of the Nostalgia Critic to her snarky and detailed critiques and observations on media that I started warming up to her videos. I felt it was a breath of fresh air from the typical "comedic review" format that many TGWTG reviewers adapted for their video series as it worked to her strengths with being analytical on those topics, while also tossing in occasions of snarky humor on the absurdity of a number of mainstream media elements. Could this come off as condescending and elitist? Maybe to those who are fans of the TGWTG video formula or any movie she critiques (most noticeably Disney movies). But for someone with Lindsay's credentials, her review format works great to her strengths as I always got the impression she seemed nailed down by the Nostalgia Chick act before finally deciding to establish her own identity outside of it.

    I never liked Lindsay, tbh. I found her a unnecessary and unfunny knock off of the original when she was Nostalgia Chick. Then she became completely insufferable as her own channel. Just the most obnoxious hyper aggressive feminist nonsense i've ever seen. Also the abortion thing really left a bad taste in my mouth about her as a human being.

    I don't think it's fair to compare what Lindsay is currently doing to the works of Doug, Spoony or Linkara. She's not doing movie reviews where the entire plot is recited to the viewer with short skits and jokes inter-cut throughout, what she does now leans much more towards the academic. Delving into the subtextual theory, philosophy and historical aspects of the media we consume, they're about educating people to be more critical about the media they consume rather than simply trying to make a jokes about bad or popular films and television.

      Lindsay Ellis is a legitimate film critic who does actual, respectable analysis. Her content is LEAGUES above the garbage that hack Doug Walker & all the other Channel Awesome fucks do, and it always has been. Lindsay Ellis, Todd in the Shadows, Brows Held High, and Allison Pregler are basically the only people associated with CA who are even remotely respectable.

    Lindsay Ellis looked set to tumble down the extreme left rabbit hole, but seemingly clawed her way back out. She does discuss those "pesky liberal" subjects, but she makes an honest effort to do it in a way that's neutral and not belligerent.

    • HyrumHiggins
      HyrumHiggins

      She's still still very left wing, but her video essays aren't always super political. Her feminism has some overlap with right wing talking points like being opposed to the "badass bitch" cliche and wanting there to be more representation and empowerment of traditionally feminine characters

      @ReloadPsi Woah woah woah, I'm sorry, I did not mean no offense! I used to be a big fan of hers, defending her when some friends of mine were badmouthing her, but with time she started to resemble the person that my friends accused her of being, and I decided to stop following her. I do not mind if someone watches her, doesn't see the issues that I see, it's all fine, and I don't mean to say that my fairly issues with her are objective nor that everyone should follow my example. I am sorry if I have that impression

      Wow, and shortly after making this comment I discover that her latest video has her explaining the difference between saying that something exists and saying that something is bad - of which she tries to do the former. Go figure. No doubt she'll be accused of being condescending just for having to explain that to people who refuse to have that explained to them.

      @FarelForever If that's your attitude, you're probably always going to believe she's in it. Unfortunately far worse people than her have poisoned the well so that these topics can't be discussed without being associated with them. I know I can't talk about my own mental health or sexuality any more without some dumbass either yelling "snowflake" or some other idiot telling me I should "check my privilege you white man," and that's largely actually the fault of people in the latter category turning the subjects so toxic. Either way, I can't stand talking to people in either category, and apparently if some of this video is believed then neither can Lindsay. Lindsay does neither of these things, or certainly not in her more recent videos. She just tries to explain the topics without being an arsehole about it - she brought up cultural appropriation in one video and then had to rush to explain that it's not actually a bad thing and obliquely implied that fat skanks on Tumblr need to stop assuming it is. That's what I call having clawed her way out. SJWs tell you how to feel about a subject without explaining it. Lindsay explains the subjects then leaves you to make to your mind. If that latter qualifies you as an SJW in your mind (didn't help she called herself one before, I admit that) then you are already lost. I don't know, maybe it's because I'm British and we have a less black and white political system that I can appreciate that; in the UK centrist or atheist aren't the swearwords they're treated as in the States, where only having two major political parties means everybody seems to feel forced to pick a side.

    I've always had a weird thing with Lindsay Ellis. She used to be one of my favourite producers on tgwtg and to this day I still think she makes very interesting content but I have never liked her as a person. Not even in the early days. I used to say that I respected her as a content creator but I would never want to be in the same room as her because her personality is repulsive to me. I will say though that I think she's gotten less obnoxious with age but I also don't follow her as closely as I used to.

      silja lin The only weird thing I have about Lindsay "Wet Brain" Ellis is she finds new ways for me to find her repulsive.
