I’m sorry everyone. I can’t keep COOLERNOW123 STUDIOS running. The combination of schoolwork overload, my own changing interests, and peer pressure of other people giving up Gogo’s Crazy Bones on their YouTube channels has pushed me to finally pull the plug today. It was a long and amazing run, closing in at an impressive 3-and-a-half years, 662 subscribers, 500k+ video views, and lots of impressions on people.
When I uploaded my first film, Accidental Demolition, via gogosland.com, I had no idea that this would become a huge thing for me. I opened a YouTube channel after making a few videos on March 1, 2012. That’s when things started to change. I kept making videos, and subscribers kept coming in. I had tons of regular fans, some who even decided to take up stopmotion animation with Gogo’s Crazy Bones themselves. I had created a community, and now, I hope that it lives on.
In the end of this video, when Angiru asks Fist where they are going, it is a message to the fans that you should not stop making Gogo’s Crazy Bones stopmotions so you can keep this whole community alive. I really don’t want something amazing like this to collapse even though I’m leaving.
Before I say my final good-bye, I need to tell you what’s going to happen to the channel. The channel (and its videos) will stay up for people to watch and browse as an archive. I will disable comments and ratings on all my videos, however, except for this one. The website will also be converted into a video-browsing archive. As for my Twitter, @coolernow123, I have decided to abandon it and change it to @robotunderscore. If you ever want to reach out to me again, go tweet to me.
Thank you all for making this an amazing and unexpected 3-and-a-half years. The world of Angiru has gone far, and it shouldn’t end here. I will remember this channel all the way to my deathbed.
See you sometime maybe,
P.S. The song is Blind Spots by C418. http://c418.bandcamp.com/track/blind-spots
