Shouldn't the Submit a secret be higher up on the list on the sidebar? Since it's a secret site, the main thing should be more prominent.

And fixed. Thank you for pointing that out. ^^

tgwtg hope wish want review submission

As terrifying as the prospect sounds, I do have an irrational hope that one day, someone on TGWTG or Chez Apocalypse will end up reviewing the horrifically written, awfully drawn, sexist, homophobic, ego-driven and downright disturbing abomination of a web-comic known as “Sonichu”. As long as the thing gets  torn to shreds, I’d be very happy indeed.

A Missed Opportunity


So I read the ask sent earlier about somebody not liking the Pinky and the Brain joke and finding it uncomfortable. While I don’t know if I agree about the uncomfortable aspect, the question did get me to thinking. And I wonder if Doug actually missed a fantastic opportunity to make the joke a lot funnier than it was.

See, it shouldn’t be Brain that finally loses it and goes into a diatribe of swearing. It should be Pinky.

Think about it: Pinky doesn’t want to take over the world. Hell, Pinky probably doesn’t even want to leave his comfy lab. It’s Brain who constantly forces him to go along with his hare-brained schemes, often going through Hell and at times risking life and limb all to help with Brain’s utterly insane plans of world domination. Pinky’s not a conqueror; he just wants to be nice to people and enjoy life! But he goes along with it anyway out of simple blind devotion to his crazy friend, who constantly subjects him to verbal and physical abuse and for the most part couldn’t give a damn what he wants.

We’ve all heard Brain’s point of view, is the thing. He has gone into long diatribes about what an idiotic boob Pinky is and how this or that plan could have worked if it weren’t for him and etc. The speech here doesn’t do anything that hasn’t been done in the show itself, other than tack on some swearing. Which…okay yeah, hearing Brain swear is sorta funny in a surreal sense, I guess. But what about that have fans been so desperate to see for years? We’ve practically already heard it! Pinky finally getting to say his piece…now THAT’S something I bet some fans would find satisfying.

It’s a pretty common theory…I think Cracked started it…that Brain was actually the insane one and Pinky was the one with all the smarts. And here Mr. Walker had a fantastic opportunity to actually bring that idea into fruition, to change up the formula instead of just re-hash it for Adult Swim, to really take advantage of the voice actors’ participation and make something absolutely brilliantly clever. No offense Doug, but as a comedian, you sorta dropped the ball on this one. In my opinion.

Rejected, but proud


Hello all. It is I Jerred, the creator of “Filmmaker Wannabes.” As the title of my post says, I was rejected by Channel Awesome but my email informed me that I was in the Semifinal Yes folder among the Elite 40 so I was this close to getting in. That’s extremely good odds! I’m darn proud of myself. This only proves to me that I need to work harder on my material and maybe next time when they hold another talent search, it could be my time. It could be all of our times. Never give up. Never get bitter. Practice makes perfect. I know with just a little elbow grease and some patience, our time will be worthwhile.

 - Jerred D. Adams

TGWTG Secrets Mod note Apology

Apology


I’d like to apologize on behalf of this secret in which Rocked Reviews was mentioned to not have been picked up. This secret had arrived in the inbox about a day before it was announced they had made it, but wasn’t published until today, when one of our other mods got back from vacation and made and sent it out. 

I should have went in and deleted it but have not really been on the blog for several days due to sudden medical problems.

I apologize for any hurt feelings that this may have caused.

Cheer Up!
I think people are overreacting about not being picked. As much as I love TGWTG, I wouldn’t say they are on some higher pedestal than the rest of us. I mean, I was rejected but so what? I can audition for other websites and keep running my show for fun.
Just because you’re not what Rob Walker is after, doesn’t automatically mean your show sucks! It simply means some bearded guy in Chicago isn’t interested in you and Rob’s opinions are just as valid as anyone else’s. He’s a human being, not a god. 
There’s no need to be so dependent on TGWTG to get your show noticed, just keep pushing forward and hope for the best. Even if the rejection makes you have doubts about your show’s quality, don’t see it as a dead end, look at your series and see how it can be improved! (Ask viewers, I’m sure they’ll   happily give constructive feedback).  Cheer up guys and don’t be afraid to gain success independently.

Am I the only one who thought the Pinky and the Brain scene at the end of the Purge review was kind of mean-spirited and not funny at all?

SF Debris entering Channel Awesome

So yesterday I heard the announcement that SF Debris is joining Channel Awesome. I am really happy for him and have been a fan ever since I decided to check him out after his cameo on Linkara’s 200th Episode (IIRC).

Due to the sheer amount of SF Debris references on the show I do hope we see a crossover between the two, as well as Diamanda Hagan for a Doctor Who special,

Congratulations to Welshy

I’ve just seen Welshy’s tweet where he says a festival in Austin, TX has asked him to submit his Dark Side of the Internet Documentary. Huge congratulations to Welshy for releasing a piece of work that has gotten that much notice even a year after it’s release.

tgwtg talent pickup sad submission

This is a different kind of confession. Unfortunately, this talent pick-up proved to me that I have no place in the film industry nor as a critic. People treat me like how I treat movies. No matter what I do, people just remind me that I suck. I realize that I have no place to judge anything because I’d be a hypocrite. It’s not just now either. After years of trying and trying, this was the final nail. I’m doing something else with my life, I’ve decided. Something that anyone can do.
