"I meant to post something here before the show tonight, but as you can imagine, ever since the meeting Monday night where I found out the DWP was closing down, i've been scrambling to figure out what to do, and how to go about, well.. just about everything. First. I want to say, THANK YOU. To everyone one of you, good comments, bad, they all were read and I appreciated all of them. I like feedback and feel like a grew tremendously over the past few months, and a lot of that was from your comments. Second. I have to say, THANK YOU, to Yogscast. They are an incredible group of creators, artists and well, just damn good people. When I first brought this up to them, I got some really kind words, and was surprised that I was given the option to stay since I feel a lot of what got me added to Yogscast was the synergy of our group dynamic. I really wanted to stay, but after having a lot of thinking time and looking back over what content I've produced over the past few months since eric was gone, I just don't feel like I fit. Add to that my wife is starting school and my recording time will be limited to the hours between when UK records, and US records for yogscast. I believe that a lot of being Yogscast is about playing together, cross overs and what not, and honestly feel that I'd just be using the Yogscast brand to get subs that in the end would be disappointed they were not getting yogscast group content. It's probably the stupidest move I've ever made, but it just didn't feel right to stay under the circumstances. I just want to reiterate. I love everyone at Yogscast. Not just the content, but the people behind the content. If my life was different, my decision would be completely different. I'm going to miss everyone at Yogscast. I'm going to miss all the incredible yognaughts who watched my videos. Thank you so much, I truly hope that I have enriched your lives at least a 100th of how much you've enriched mine. I'll be around, and if my circumstances change, who knows, maybe I haven't dropped the server enough to be forever banned from yogscast ;) Seriously.. Much <3 and thank you everyone."
