TWIT moves to the East Side
I don't do much TWIT coverage anymore mostly because I don't believe in beating a dead horse. On occasion, however, there are noteworthy events that require no context and no explanation.
Honestly, there's rarely much that comes out of the house the Leo built that's worth covering. I'll save the morbid voyeurism for sites like totaldrama.org.
Which leads me to the video below. If anything punctuates the sad state of TWIT it's watching the cadre of TWIT regulars ride an open air bus to a sad little office park. Listen closely and you'll hear unmistakable subtext of unhappiness.
The long last looks at the old studio, the constant jokes about the seedy neighbors of the new one and the apologetic tone for everything the new studio isn't once they arrive.
It's a capitulation brought about by a reality check even if the public face of TWIT denies the reality.
Still, it's the most lively broadcast to come out of TWIT in a long time. So whether you're fan, foe or like me indifferent to TWIT the following should provide entertainment nonetheless.
Kind of like the morbid curiosity one finds at staring at the aftermath of a car crash.
UPDATE! Recent events ( AKA Copyright Strike ) has removed my ability to provide video coverage of the event. Meaning I can only provide a link to TWIT instead of the video that was here before. This is due to the fact that apparently Lisa Laporte, conservative whip-cracker and all around dynamic personality has decided that nobody was allowed to watch or record an unedited, highly promoted TWIT event for posterity. Even if it was covered by Creative Commons.
Thanks for the copyright strike! Karma's a bitch and apparently so are you my dear.
In the immortal words of Han Solo I say this...."Laugh it up, Fuzzball.."
Sorry, but when faced with Donald Trump type tactics I lose my objectivity....
Here's the link to the "big" event. TWIT moves...
