Anybody knows this (http://thatguywiththeglasses.com)pearl of a site?


Well, for their one-year anniversary, they made a special video (http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/nostalgia-critic/6719-1-year-anniversary-video)condensed with awesome.


Still, it's a really fun site with some awesome contributors (one of them, The Spoony One has been discussed a few times here). Do check it out.

To dust off an old chestnut; that was awesome! I love TGWTG. I make it a routine weekly visit, and I find that most of his reviews are still funny the second time round. No wonder they took so long with this vid; this was epic! It's a shame That Guy in the Suede couldn't come, though. But he's still on his mission, so I guess there's nothing for it. Still, raw sweetness here. Especially loved the Big Lipped Alligator Moment.

I love this site. One of the best sources of humor currently on the net.

I watched that video last night at work. My co-workers thought I was insane, because I kept pumping my fist in the air every time a reviewer I love turned up.

Needless to say, it happened a lot.

In one year that site has gained a whole lot of ground. There are a ton of talented people on there, and it was really sweet to see them all in the same place.

GO AWAY!


I mean. Yesssss... I mean... Sure. They've got some really awesome dude/ettes for their site who specialize in making crap movies/games funny. Hell, Spoony has become one of the top Non-Something Awful Let's Players out there for his awesome runthrough of Phantasmagoria: A Puzzle of Flesh and SWAT 4.

That and I AM A MAN is one of those things that you should always find a reason to yell.

Believe me, I have. And nobody ever gets it.

I need to start hanging out with some dorkier people.

Red Sonja was one of NCs funniest reviews.

My favorites are definitely Spoony and Linkara. I like Linkara's reviews for originality.

Those two definitely are two of my preferred one. Psyweedle Linkara is certainly original if nothing else.

My favorites are the man himself and Nostalgia Chick, person'ly.

But yeah, at least 90% of what that guy touches turns to gold.

You could come to my college. I know a guy who quotes it. Problem is, he does it too much, explains the connotations of it, and it's never funny. =/

My suggestion: Don't hang out with dorkier people. At least, not extremely dorky people.

That aside, I like TGWTG myself. I've been watching Nostalgia Critic for a while, and I watch Nostalgia Chick, too. I'll likely venture to the other reviewers once I get my laptop back.

I visited the site, and I have to thank hanzo66 for introducing me to this wonderful site, where I can spend all that time that I should spend studing, watching the Nostalgia Guy ranting on old cartoons, Linkara going into a berseker rage (Adamantium Rage?) at the mere mention on "One More Day" and the Nostalgia Chick and PUPPIES!!.

Thank you, for ruining my life.

On a more serious note, I loved the site, I think I saw some of the old 5 second movies before, but I didn't know what happened to them. Good think to watch some of those back.

I even made a "Nostalgia Critic" OotS-style avatar that I just posted a few seconds ago in the Arts and Crafts forum.
