More Lupa Crossovers!

I feel like Obscurus Lupa, more than anyone on the site, really lends herself well to crossovers.
When teamed up with someone more serious, like Oancitizen or Nostalgia Chick, she makes a good foil with her goofiness. And with more comical reviewers, like Linkara or Phelous, the back-and-forth is twice as funny as it normally would be!
So I say nuts to the haters, Lupa makes every review better!


I walnut let you down.

Playing in the Deep End

nashscribblings:

So recently lots of the female producers at TGWTG have been getting threatened by a shitwit what thinks threats of rape and murder are the height of wit.  I’m sure if Oscar Wilde were alive today, he’d chuck all that wordplay and nimble speech for a quick tweet about violating someone’s pets.

Lots of times the response to online abuse like this is about on par with getting called a stupidhead in grade school: ignore it and they’ll move on.  That sidesteps the level of escalation this presents.  There are insults that are within a certain threshold of “acceptable” in society.  They’re not encouraged, and they’re not exactly lauded, but calling someone a motherfucker or an asshole is pretty much okay.  When you jump up to threats, you’ve shot past that threshold.

Right now a criminal case is being put together.  It’s a trip to big-boy town and I don’t think our would-be Shakespeare quite gets the gravity of the situation.  This is a life-ruiner.  This is potentially legal fees, a criminal record, a straight-up slashing and burning of anyone’s future.  Jobs will be harder to come by.  The debt is usually crushing.  And that’s ignoring the possibility that actual incarceration might result.

There are jokes, and there are threats.  Saying “it was a joke!” does not absolve one of making a threat.  The intention of humor doesn’t make the awful, nasty venom in those kind of words go away.  It’s not an undo button.

I think the internet has divorced lots of people from the reality of this kind of behavior, as has spotty prosecution on the part of law enforcement.  But, y’know … some of us do have means.  If criminal court doesn’t suffice, there’s certainly grounds for a civil case; listen to the most recent “This American Life” if you don’t believe me.

We tolerate a lot in our current weird mish-mash of the physical and digital, but this shouldn’t and isn’t being overlooked anymore.  There’s a time to roll one’s eyes and ignore, usually when being told you suck or your work is shit or blah blah blah.  But when you gleefully, repeatedly promise physical harm to another human being and leave a fairly lengthy digital paper trail in the process … we’re not going to ignore that.

We’re not going to reply to you.  We’re not going to give you attention.  We’re not going to go back-and-forth in the comments with you.  We’re going to call the police and our lawyers and let the issue play out far from the audience you intended.

Stick to calling someone a poopiehead, kids.  It’s better for everybody.

Yea, I love critics, alot
like, they are my TV
but these two critics, are my favorites
Why? Because they have helped me so  much.
I have been through some shit in the past and right now. I pretty much lost every friend ever due to drama, awful things were said about me, people avoided me everywhere in school, people even made a little game out of me by asking me to touch one of them and passing it around school, the list goes on. Lately Ive been dealing with school and drama and feelings and stuff, i’m moving to a new school, my friends aren’t so happy (I feel like they don’t even care much about me anymore anyways, (the only real friends I feel are my online friends) a kid in my ‘friend group’ has been annoying us ALOT and we still keep him (I have mixed feelings about him) I just really want the year to end.
    The only way away from that all, was critics. I would have killed myself along time ago if it wasn’t for critics (also my online friends helped me) I watched mikeJ, Nostalgia critic (The king of  TGWTG, you can;t go with out watching him) some Linkara, Viga, and these two right up there. But before you say “Why did you only draw these two?!” I only drew these two because….I feel they helped me the most. Yea, I bet they barely know i’m there (I do fan art, they sometimes retweet is and that means a lot to me, reply to my tweets as well) And i’m going to keep in mind they might never see this post and that;s fine, because, they don’t need to. I am just saying my feelings. 
    Oh, I forgot to say, I have sleeping problems. I can’t sleep at night, the only way for me to, is to listen yo critics. yes, it’s sounds super creepy, but, that’s the only way I sleep. The only way I won’t get dreams of me getting murdered or getting it by a car again (I was hit by a car this winter) This is the only way I can wake up for school in the morning. (as much as I hate it) And yea, I bet sometimes I come off as a stalker to them (I wouldn’t be very shocked) and I bet this will not help! But, I’d only care a small bit, I still love em to bits. 
   This past summer, I got the Jill sandwitch t-shirt. I swore it to school, no one ever made remarks about it unless it was “why is there a creepy guy on your T-shirt?” or “what does that mean? “you almost became a Jill sandwitch?” I just replied with “He isn’t creepy, he just is super serious looking” and “It’s from a game.” but one day, I was being picked on as always, I just acted like the guys weren’t there, I had the shirt on and one yelled, “WHO’S THE RETARD ON THAT STUPID SHIRT YOU GOT ON?!” now, something ticked in my head, a small switch flicked on, this was the one thing he had to stab at, the guy who I enjoy so much, a guy who has helped me through a lot and a guy who has always made me laugh. Something flicked in my head, it was a like a bomb that had be lighten. I turned to the idiot, stared at him in the face and replied, “How about you shut up, this guy means a lot to me, he’s helped me deal with idiots like you.” I turned back, putting my headphones in to some music. The idiot kept trying to talk me but I kept on acting like he wasn’t there.
   Yea, I know, this is somewhat creepy, but i’m just telling the truth. 
these two have really helped
thank you to phelous and obscuruslupa
you two are amazing, never stop being amazing
-the person on twitter who does fan art of ducks

Glad to’ve helped, and I hope things get better soon. In the long run, the people who matter to you will stay with you and school won’t mean too much. Life gets so much better. :)

When I opened the package to find six tiny, anemic patties, I should’ve known this was a regrettable purchase. The picture on the front of the delicious “restaurant style” country fried steak I was promised seemed to laugh at me. It came with gravy in tubes.
In tubes.
After thawing the gravy from its frozen, plastic prison, I was greeted with some sort of chunky, gelatinous substance, separated by oil and tasting of death. Pools of grease greeted me as I glimpsed into the afterlife.
0/10 would not recommend.

This, everyone, is Danny Lopez, aka “DannyWiiU”, “DannySNES”, “dannydsi”, and a bunch of other names involving Nintendo consoles. He’s a creep whose Twitter feed consists ENTIRELY of asking women to burp for him and make videos of them burping. Plus trying to get 15-year old actress Joey King to unblock him from Instagram and Vine. Make of THAT what you will.

Recently, he threatened to rape Lindsay Ellis, rape all female producers for Channel Awesome/Chez Apocalypse/TGWTG, and kill her boyfriend (ToddInTheShadows) and their dog Kali. He is currently under investigation by the NYPD for these threats, and Lindsay has blocked him on Twitter.

Danny is not very clever, since he thinks that someone blocking him means he can continue to make these threats. He is mistaken. I’ve screencapped these for the attention of lindsayetumbls, partly because I don’t know how to submit them to her, but also as a signal boost. If you see him make any threats to anyone, screencap them, post them to Lindsay, and move on. These are all being used in a case against him.

Thank you.

Oh! But wait! He hasn’t stopped there!

I have to assume at this point he’s doing it out of spite. Regardless, at this point, we treat this as an actual legitimate threat. Updating this so @lindsayetumbls has more material, but if obscuruslupa, marzgurl, nashscribblings, atopfourthwall, kylekallgren, or any other TGWTG producer can reblog this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Updated: new threats made against Kaylyn Dicksion, aka Marzgurl.

I have my own personal screenshots that I’ve kept and sent to Lindsay so that she can actually do something legal with them, but basically yes, he has also threatened to rape me and kill my fiance, Josh. So, you know, just to further show that it’s a pretty serious issue.

If you see this person around, don’t engage him, don’t give him any attention. Screen cap if you need to and block him, and that’s all need be said about him.

Do not, I repeat DO. NOT. ENGAGE. HIM.

Screencaps. Send them to Lindsay. Block him.

Friends, should you see any certain someones making threats of sexual violence against me, do *NOT* respond to him. Take a screencap, block him, send me the screencap. Just let him make his threats into the void. Every single one is being sent to the police. Don’t worry; he’ll get his.
