Because of the announcement that the Nostalgia Critic is to be at least semi-retired I just thought Id say something.
The first review I saw online was his Batman and Robin, That was back when the vids were on revver. I thought it was brilliant, something new and more than that something I would be able to do too.
Took me a while to get my show going because I was studying film technology and I
needed to finish that first. Before I started I saw other peoples shows (Linkara, The Nostalgia Chick, Marzgurl) and it made me all want to do my own vids all the more. It took me ages to get anywhere. I wasn’t even noticed on the forums until my 8th month and then it took another year to be picked up on TGWTG.
In the time I was on the forum, spending lots of time being ignored I made many precious friends among the reviewing community. One of them, Nash played some of my videos on his weekly show and one of his audience became a fan and contacted me. Next month I’m marrying her. For that alone, I can not thank Doug Walker enough. I’v never met the man and yet he has had more positive impact on my life than most people I have met.
He agreed to review Heavy Metal with me. The film I wanted to see the Critic review ever since the first time I saw any of his videos years earlier. It was like I was playing guitar alongside Jimi Hendrix. And like playing Jimi Hendrix is really showed up how much better he is at this than I am. Still, I will try to improve, to be worthy of keeping going this silly little net-thing that he helped found.
Thanks Doug. Who I hereby declare the patron saint of Haganistan.
