This one was a dream for me to write.  It’s a relief to have this one off my chest, although the comment section is upstaging me right now in terms of inside knowledge haha.

I wrote a story about healing last year called It Gets Easier that features Williams as a character.  You should check it out if you have time!

Shut Up and #ChangeTheChannel

Bee

The Nostalgia Critic’s talent aggregate website, Channel Awesome, has been under fire for the past few days due its horrific treatment of their past employees. Things like refusing to pay anyone for their work yet forcing insane deadlines, firing their HR Director the day after she had surgery, telling some of the staff that no one will ever watch their content, and much, much more.

If you want to read up on the highlights of what went down, go here:

The reality of the whole situation is that this isn’t new and the contributors have been saying some pretty wretched things about the site for a very long time now.  Yet, these whistle-blowers have all gone on to create bigger and better things while Channel Awesome continues to linger in an age of internet comedy long since past.

I am not here to talk about the terrible work conditions of Channel Awesome, but rather to examine Doug Walker (aka The Nostalgia Critic) and analyze his “artistry,” and how that lead to this blatant disregard for the lives of others.

Newsletter Announcement!

Hey gang!  I’m excited to share with you guys that I’m starting my own newsletter!  Click here if you are interested.

I am starting it because I took my own advice for once, and I am taking myself seriously.  I have started working as a freelance writer in addition to my Barista job and honestly, it’s been going really well so far!

I have three different publishers interested in drafts for essays from me, and I actually signed a contract a few days ago for one essay.  Which is weird.  It’s weird getting paid for this sort of thing right out of the gate.  Especially when it’s an essay on my high school bully.

No one tell him, okay?  Oy.
