    My alternate plan for this video was an interview with Matt Turk. Ended up deciding on this instead though. Maybe we'll have to do that at 2 million...

    I love your content so much I've been here since choco mountain! When the Minecraft RSG WR is sub 10 would you do a Minecraft speed run history?

  • CinderGD

    I'm definitetly a little late to this channel, but all of your videos always keep me from being bored out of my mind, and i've watched some like rainbow road world records, the quest to beat matt turk, or the world record perfection almost 5 times and they never get old, thanks for making such awesome videos!

  • KindaSus

    I think this is one of the only UZloadrs I am genuinely happy for, well done man!

    It's so refreshing seeing youtubers putting unheard of amounts of effort into their vids. These days, I see content creators dropping content that they wipped up in maybe half an hour and I m glad to say that Summoning Salt is not one of those people. Keep it up Double "S", We support you 1 Million percent.

  • prizefyter

    Being in my mid-40s, I grew up playing a lot of these games. Glad I stumbled on your channel while looking up speedruns. It's fun watching the speedrunning community absolutely dismantle games that defined my childhood lol

    Every time i watch your videos, i enjoy it but then get sad thinking about how all the games you can cover are dwindling down, and that those videos were so good. Makes me want to like erase my memory of those videos and watch them over

  • Empyreal

    I may have said this before but binge-watching your videos helped me a lot getting through the wee hours with my newborn foster son. One year later? *fade to black* This happened. [picture of me watching this video with his newborn brother]

    Bro I'm gonna get deep rq, ion know anything at all about speedrunning and have no interest in speedrunning/watching speedruns/getting into speedruns. WITH THAT SAID, your channel is probably my favorite thing ever. Something abt the way you edit and tell it like a story is therapeutic, beautiful how something as simple as playing a game fast can be an uplifting story of overcoming adversity and improvising in the face of roadblocks with just a touch of good narration, editing, and storytelling. keep doing what you do!!

  • deth2250

    Hey Mr salt You probably won't see this, but a vid of your editing process would be cool. Or I don't know if you'd be into this but a stream of you editing a video to see all the time and effort that goes into your process and craft. Editing probably takes days but even a small part of it would be interesting to see.

    Hey, you should keep an eye on what is going on with Wind Waker HD, they found a 3rd major glitch that promises to put the WR on sub 5 hours after 3-4 years on the 5:20 mark

    No matter what. Please take time for yourself. As much as i truly love your videos, please take time to relax. I never want to see a day when your content loses meaning to you. Your content. Your voice. Your topic. Your process. I cherish all of your videos, very much. I wish their were so many more. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart. From the days when i needed to dull my reality to make it through the day, your videos were there. The nights that i needed to rest, with my mind somewhere else entirely, your videos were there. Even in moments of my life in which their was nothing but energy, happy vibes and joy. I still enjoyed your videos. So don't thank us, at least don't thank me. I appreciate your existence. Thank you.

    Congrats. I'm a somewhat early sub, subbed right after the smb1 video dropped. You have a way of making the chase seem so heroic. I liken you to a sports documentarian. Might I suggest a long term project, an overall history of speed running. Perhaps rather than dropping it on UZload you go a step further and make a full movie on it the type that might be on Netflix. Perhaps you even do a GoFundMe or something because at that point you'll need an actual fair-use attorney. Something similar to what those guys whom were making the kyzoo documentary were doing. Anyway just some food for thought.

    As soon as I found this channel 2 weeks ago I fell in love, and I've binged every episode chronologically since. Such a perfect concept, and I'm glad the host is so good at what he does as well. It's rare to see someone with that much passion, but a speed run history channel run by someone that actually has an investment in speed running from a player's standpoint is truly special.

    Definitely deserving of that golden play button! Your content is so unique, you do the same thing over and over, but you also don't. And this video shows that you never take a generic response to pretty much anything. Your videos keep me awake at day, but help me sleep at night. This video formula is something to definitely expand upon in the future. It builds a much better understanding and relationship with the speedrunning community to whoever sees it. I have even started to consider dipping myself into the speedrunnibg community becauee of these videos. Although what game/games I will want to speedrun I hope will be on the 3ds or wii platform as they are my 2 most played on Nintendo consoles. Keep up the good work
