Early Years (2007 - 2008)Edit
Rethidus started using Youtube purely to watch videos. He had no subscribers until he uploaded his first video, "The Brawl That Killed Them All". Today, it has merely 348 views. But when it first came out, it was popular enough to get a decent rating and a few subscribers. At first, his intent was to make Spyro videos, then he drifted to overall gaming. He started uploading glitches from games such as Spyro and Crash Bandicoot, which was enough to get a subscription and friend invite from the famous user yearofthe.
Days with "The Gang"Edit
Rethidus didn't have many friends until he subscribed to fellow user fireguy1919's video. Then, the next day, this comment was found on his page.
"thanks for subscribing to my channel, which of my vids did you watch, the lego batman glitch?
Ya, i love Crash Bandicoot and overall video gamin as well rock on."
Him and fireguy1919 became fast friends, and started talking to each other on MSN almost every day. Then, one day, another comment on his channel from ERH1000 (now known as CompHelp20) said "you are cool". They became friends and then there were three. Fireguy1919 was good friends with famous Youtuber Thunderbirds101, and invited Rethidus to a chat with him. Rethidus thought Thunderbirds101 was too cool to be friends with, but they did become friends. The Gang was born. They talked every day and made videos with each other. Everything seemed perfect.
Battle with Halofreak32Edit
Somehow, Rethidus and Halofreak32 (now known as xXHalofreak34Xx, but inactive since December 6, 2009) became rivals. They hated each others guts. They simply couldn't STAND each other. It seemed everyone was against Halofreak, and surely enough, they were. Hatersfate2 came along one day, and starting harassing Rethidus and close friend Obbisol. One day, nobody could take any more, and multiple people had reported halofreak32 to Youtube, and soon enough, he was suspended. However, he has created a new account, xXhalofreak32Xx, and started making videos about Atheism. He has since stopped flaming Rethidus and friends but hasn't been active for 3 years.
Monty the MonkEdit
Rethidus uploaded the first Monty the Monk video on November 10th, 2008. It consisted of Monty asking Runescape users what they think of global warming. This was the plot for old MTM episodes, asking people about today's problems. It later drifted to a real storyline and actual plots.The series ended on June 15, 2009 due to the show being too old. A new series will be considered sometime in Summer 2012.
Meeting natlinxz and hielhutnerEdit
Years ago, Rethidus has met fellow teenagers natlinxz and hielhutner. He befriended natlinxz because of his love for video games, and befriended hielhutner for his love of World of Warcraft. He has had disputes with them (including a major but brief one with natlinxz), but they always stay friends.
Rethidus started new projects in 2009, including the resurrection of Roflcopter News Network, a pilot spinoff of Monty the Monk, and upcoming video "A Day in the Life of Rethidus". However, these were delayed as Youtube had disabled his uploading abilities for 6 months, and was at risk of suspension due to a copyright issue.
A new war was started in late 2009, involving nannerpuss09 and KingSamLopez. Rethidus didn't support this war at all, and both sides were trying to suck him in. He will never sided with anyone though.
Rethidus has moved on to a new channel, which features gaming videos done more professionally. He plans to release some Let's Plays in Summer 2012.
