MAN!!! What an ordeal!

If it wasn't for bad luck, Id have no luck at all!!! First my laptop breaks down, and then the family computer gets a virus, which I had to fix by restoring the damn thing to normal.

Maybe god or karma or whatever is punishing me for the way I acted on a certain trip. Well, lesson learned. Now I just need to fix my laptop and all will (hopefully) be well.

My thoughts on Chou Den-O and Franchise Milking

This was made just recently. My laptop just broke down and I barely finished editing this before it went bye bye on me. Needless to say my Dekaranger review is going to be put on the back burner. In the meantime I may make some more 5 second Toku movies and other segments but trust me, Dekaranger will come. You have my word on that. Enjoy this in the meantime, and the ending *winkwink*

5 Second Toku Movies - KR: Den-O: Ore, Tanjou

Doug Walker, if you are reading this I am totally paying homage to your creation, not ripping it off. Please don't sue!

The Top 10 Super Sentai Theme Songs

My "first" Toku review, well, the first one filmed anyway. It's more of a countdown as opposed to review. Enjoy.

Off to a Good Start

Well, here I am. I have to say that my first countdown video actually got some good comments and kudos on TGWTG forums. I didn't know I had it in me. I heard a LOT of people write me and say my set resembles Nostalgia Critics too much, and I agree, but it was not my first choice. I tried a couch, but then I thought "wait, Linkara does this" then I tried in my room, with all my DVD's and stuff behind me, but wait, AVGN does that!

(NEW SEGMENT) And another thing, what the hell do you WEAR during a review. I can't pick just one thing to wear all the time, like James and Doug and Lewis does. Those guys have a style they make their own. I think I have an idea but I don't want to come off as a douche. I guess my wristband morpher IS my thing. I guess it doesn't matter what shirt or coat I have on.

(END SEGMENT)It's very hard not to come off like you are ripping off the big shots who already made it to the top. My current set is tacky at best, but rest assured I am not "ripping off" anyone here. It is the best I can do on my largely limited budget.

This has been a real rotten week for me. First my router goes haywire, then I get stranded with family, no TV, no Internet. I felt like Jack in the Shining, slowly sinking into dementia. I think the only thing keeping me alive was my will to make more videos. When I FINALLY got back to civilization, my laptop quits on me. The damn thing won't even start now. Thank god I completed my last video before that happened. What else could go wrong? That is right. I tempt fate by saying that forbidden phrase. Come hell or high water, I am going to complete my DEKARNAGER review. I've got some great ideas for future videos. Countdowns, comparisons, rants, etc. So, if you are a fan of my work, tell me how I am doing, because this is only the beginning. Later.

P.S Taking wristband morpher donations! Thanks to anyone who gave me theirs!

A Long Way to the Top

EDIT: This is an older post from back in May, so this is not new.

Well, where to start. I'm trying to start running with the big boys now. I finally got my hands on a camcorder and now I'm about to set up my first filmed review. I thought I could avoid having to show the world my ugly mug while reviewing the best that Japan has to offer but I can't. My last review is proof.

My last review video is being panned on YouTube and well I've decided to go the extra mile for my future reviews. I know Doug (NC) and James (AVGN) did not become popular overnight, but I'll be lucky if I can even be half as good as them. But enough of my whining. Don't you hate it when you shop from Best Buy and the clerks in there DO NOT have any idea what they are selling you. You ask legitimate questions about the camcorder your interested in, like, does it come with a fire wire? Their repsonse "Oh yea, sure. Totally" God that pisses me off.

Long story short, I had to buy a wire off ebay, but at least I don't need to buy a DV adapter, those things are hella expensive.

I may work up the fortitude to post my next review here. Maybe someone will throw me a good comment here and there and I can get the ball rolling.

On a side note, my kudos go out to TGWTG and the whole gang for a one year anniversary vid of epic proportions. I can't wait for more. Maybe I'll be with you for the two year anniversary video. Thanks for the hard work put i

Peace out.
