Sadly, his channel has been more-or-less abandoned since 2015, as Husky has shifted his focus to various business ventures: he is one of the founders of Creator/{{Polaris}}, and has also become the manager to [[CreatorCouple his girlfriend]] [[https://www.youtube.com/rosannapansino Rosanna Pansino]], a baking celebrity with over 5 million subscribers. As of late 2018, Husky's channel has been closed down, [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes taking all of his Starcraft content with it.]]

* CareerEndingInjury: During his [[www.youtube.com/watch?v=zV4MpE_FH_k first livestream in 4 years]], Husky explained that he had begun to strain his vocal cords after years of enthusiastic casting. He would sometimes lose the ability to speak after only a couple hours of vocalizing. After assistance from vocal coaches, he recovered, but with clearly revised habits; in his videos on Ro's channel, he speaks in a more measured cadence and uses his BadassBaritone instead of straining himself with TenorBoy production.

The channel can be seen [[https://www.youtube.com/user/HuskyStarcraft here]]. He is a co-founder and prominent member of Creator/TheGameStation, frequently appearing in skits. He also has a [[https://www.youtube.com/user/husky second channel]], which he uses to post non-''VideoGame/StarCraft'' videos and unedited livesteam footage (including ''VideoGame/StarCraft''-related ones). Finally, his main channel has several sub-features, all dedicated to showing players in uncomfortable settings. One is "Ladder Anxiety," in which he showcases [[SelfDeprecation his own adventures]] in ranked play. One is "Bronze-League[[note]]The absolute lowest tier of ''SC2'' skill, consisting of the worst 8% of players[[/note]] Heroes," showcasing gameplay of the SoBadItsGood variety. And finally, there's "[[GameBreaker Imba]] League," in which professional players are subjected to new and unusual rules, such as all units having a FlashStep teleport, a GrapplingHookGun or a permanent InvisibilityCloak, and requiring said players to adapt on the fly. Husky's stated goal in ''all'' of these features is to encourage people to play the game by letting them see into the awkward, not-always-successful realities of daily play, but they're also good [[HilarityEnsues for the lulz]].

* TheStoic: Seems to have ''no'' emotion outside of ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' casts. It's seriously like a switch was flicked and all the energy was turned off. Watch the second episode of TheGameStation podcast, where he plays up the "emotionless man" haircut he recently got to absurd levels.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Acts this way in the second TheGameStation podcast, with [[WebVideo/OMFGCata Jesse]] as the Wise Guy.
* TheUnfunny: Going with TheStoic outside of ''VideoGame/StarCraft''; during the second TheGameStation podcast, [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit]] and [[WebVideo/PressHeartToContinue Dodger]] are cracking up over [[WebVideo/OMFGCata Jesse Cox's]] jokes, while Husky stares straight on. Apparently, Husky had sworn to brace himself against Website/DayNine's humor, and has become immune to Jesse's.

Compared to other commentators, he is considered the most energetic and "fun", with his casts appealing to many fans of ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' who previously have never heard of it, and many people who enjoy watching ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' without owning the game. Unlike other commentators, he also avoids swearing in his casts. Most prominent is his new band, Nerd Alert, which he started with KurtHugoSchneider and {{ivyleaguepunk}}, which makes parodies and original songs based on ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}''; their "Banelings" song garnered more than 4 million views by the end of the first week.

** Husky and Kurt were also, weirdly enough, fans of ''each other'' before they knew each other personally; Kurt just sent Husky an email one day asking if he wanted to create ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}''-based music together, and a few months later Husky remembered the email and wrote in the draft for "Banelings".

[=HuskyStarcraft=] is a Website/YouTube channel starring Mike "Husky" Lamond, who casts ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'' matches. Originating from Oregon, he gained his first 10,000 subscribers on a now-defunct Website/YouTube channel called "[[http://www.youtube.com/user/EsportsReport EsportsReport]]", covering ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft|I}} Brood War'' professional games. Afterwards, he created the "[=HuskyStarcraft=]" account, covering exclusively ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'', which has since then exploded in popularity and fueled his own rise to prominence.

* CripplingOverspecialization: Among his internet commentator colleagues at Polaris, Husky is by far the most specialized in Blizzard games (Starcraft in particular, obviously)... which makes him ill-qualified to speak about basically anything else. This was telling during the podcast he was a guest host on, where he spoke the least compared to every single guest to date.
