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 am finally ditching USlift because of censorship and manipulation. I will look for your videos, channels and content on other platforms.

Hey Salt, I don't know if you're aware, but I heard SmallAnt say multiple times that he uses your content to sleep at night. I thought that was pretty cool.

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!

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.

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!!

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.

You are THE BEST content creator I've ever seen, if anyone deserves millions of subscribers it's you! I'm already excited for your next video and for the future this channel holds! Thank you again for this amazing content, and I wish you the best!

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 USlift 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.
