There were some more or less popular reviewers/videomakers on the website "That Guy With The Glasses" (TGWTG). Years ago, before it simply became "Channel Awesome".
Reviewers like That Aussie Guy (Dan Rizzo), who got into such a HUGE falling-out with TGWTG that he was fired, his page on the Channel Awesome Wiki was deleted, and very little of his videos can be found. This was around 2007-2009. One of his shows was Riz's Rave Reviews, a video game review series.

And then there is Iron Liz, who was mostly known for being Linkara's girlfriend. She started a review series called Pen n Paper Corner, where she'd review tabletop RPGs. Those videos were hosted on Blip, and after it was shut down, she didn't bother to reupload/keep them, since she didn't think they were good.*
One episode managed to be mirrored:

I remember when I first found TGWTG/Channel Awesome, and there was a lot there then that isn't their now, considering it was at a time when there was an abundance of reviewers that were trying to be the next Doug Walker or James Rolfe. I remember watching the "Nostalgia Chick Winner" video, and one reviewer I never heard of called "That Chick with the Goggles" was present as well as Lindsay and Marzgurl, who I was more familiar with. Her time on the site was short lived, and it was obvious she left before I started frequenting the site around 2010-2011.
One should also discuss the reviewers on TGWTG's ill-fated and short-lived sister site Blistered Thumbs, which was where most of the game reviewers were, and was basically like a hybrid between TGWTG and ScrewAttack. Some reviewers like Angry Joe and Guru Larry are still around, but a lot of the Blistered Thumbs reviewers are pretty much forgotten now, especially since the site wasn't paid attention to that much in comparison to it's parent site.
Sorry to bump this thread, but I feel this would be an interesting topic to cover if it did have relevancy (i.e. people actively searching for obscure former TGWTG reviewers' videos after they got fired/retired from the site).
Out of all the former reviewers for TGWTG, there are only about four reviewers that I still know about today and continue to make videos on their own channels are Lindsay Ellis as the Nostalgia Chick, Noah Antwiler as Spoony, Phelan Porteous as Phelous, and Allison Pregler as Obscurus Lupa.
Despite the frustrations of normal day life we go through, the best thing to do about it is still being happy for our friends and family.
