So, the site update is finally coming.
Um, it's up. It looks like THIS.
You will see that it has a new address. The old site is going down soon. (I was told 2 weeks from now but I can't find an announcement.) They are not updating the old site, they are making a completely new site with a new domain name.
This means that, well, it's gonna disappear. Unless someone archived pages via the Wayback Machine (which I'm not sure would even work with this, but who knows) it's gonna be gone soon.
If you're like me and this makes you feel a little anxious, now is the time to go through and take MANY screenshots. PDF files. Whatever works for you. And do it now, and soon, because the site will be gone.
I know the comments sections were usually a site of horribleness, but some were not. Friends were made. Recommendations were suggested. Memes were circulated. There's a lot of history there. I'm going to be very sad to see it go. As much as we all joked about the site redesign being needed and never coming, thatguywiththeglasses.com has been in my bookmarks for six years now. For most of that time, I'd visit at least every day, or every other day, checking the new videos and seeing what was being posted.
I'm going to be sad to no longer see this site pop up. I'm going to miss it.
I guess you could say I'm soon going to be feeling ... nostalgic, for thatguywiththeglasses.com.
Seriously though, it's always sad to see a familiar place vanish, especially one that's been there for me, relatively unchanged, for a decent chunk of time.
I'm hopeful for this new site, even though I personally don't like the look of it and the design itself seems cumbersome. I've already been watching my favorites on their own websites though, so maybe I just won't be visiting the site itself as much as I did in high school, maybe I'll be watching everyone on blip or their personal blogs instead.
It's just ... it's very strange, thinking back, when I was on spring break as a 15 and a half year old, and followed a link from tvtropes to this girl called the Nostalgia Chick making jokes about David Bowie. And then I watched this thing called the Brawl, full of people I didn't know spouting catchphrases I'd never heard before, and ... well, if you know me you know what happened after that.
Anyways, basically, take screenshots while you can, because thatguywiththeglasses.com is going down soon and the new site will replace it.
