So, in efforts to support all my YouTubing & Twitch things, I’ve started a Patreon campaign. All donations appreciated. Everything will go towards getting better equipment to allow me to provide better quality content.
With this recent purchase & arrival of my Sony Bloggie, I will officially be finally starting on a vlog series for the UTubes. I admit it isn’t the best video camera with the bestest video quality, but it’ll get the job done for what I want it to do.
A vlog series you say? Why?
Well, ever since some recent events it pushed me more towards making the necessary preparations for a vlog series. I’ve always wanted to do a vlog & have been wanting to do one for a while now, but never got around to it/didn’t have the necessary equipment. With the needed equipment obtained, I will begin work on this series very soon.
What’s it about?
Basically, it’s getting back to the roots of this blog. This blog was originally meant to be a rant blog where I’ll go on & on about various topics, some “regular life” & others geek culture related. Since this blog has more or less been taken over by my con life, panelist adventures, & cosplay hobbying, I wanted to do something where I still rant & get ‘back to the basics’ of this blog, but also gives me a platform that’s easier to work with (on the free version) than WordPress. Of course, there is no ‘paid version’ of Youtube, but is the case with WordPress & I would probably run out of space before long anyway & I rather avoid that issue as much as possible.
Anyway, there will be 2 ‘sections’ to this rant vlog series, one about regular life issues (like stupidity in social networking, people being immature & callous, etc.) & then the other about geek culture related things (hating fandoms, stupidity of newer anime fans, idiots with gaming, etc.); granted, there will also be a 3rd with info. about the channel, like episode 0, as well as giveaways, if I ever get popular enough to merit that. I’ll try to keep both sections balanced, but I can’t make any promises because I’m pretty much going to be winging it as I go unless I get popular enough & enough feedback to focus the episodes more; i.e., suggestions on topics, etc., otherwise, I do what I want!
What’s it going to be called?
I plan to name this vlog series Hate All the Things! ’cause I haven’t banked off that meme enough, with the name, like with panelist’s stuff, DJ Date Masamune. So, if you’re on Youtube, definitely subscribe! Of course, like with my (long remiss) podcast series, I’ll have a page on this blog that links to my Youtube videos & I plan to have an ‘episode 0’ that explains all the ins & outs of the series. I plan to keep the episodes around 30 minutes or shorter (less editing & uploading the videos would take forever to do) with lots of captions/annotations only to be topped off with segues & tangents galore. Trust me, if you already like this blog, you’ll like the vlog, so give it a look!
As soon as this is posted, I’ll add the page that will list all the episodes with links to them. Backwards, I know, but whatever.
Nothing’s more fun -a.k.a. annoying- as friends who are perpetually showing you some irksome thing or another on YouTube.
“But I do that?!” you might say, but are you constantly badgering your friends to watch something they specifically told you repeatedly that they didn’t want to see ever again? Probably not, and I personally don’t count posts on your Facebook; that’s not forcing people to watch videos you find ‘interesting.’ This is especially annoying if your friend insists you watch fairly long video clips of what is essentially the same thing over, and over, and over, ad infinitum; it’s unbearable.
So, if you do this, stop; it’s pain staking for your friends to suffer through and completely unnecessary, especially when your friends beg you to not show them videos in the first place ~.~
