"I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'what if life were fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?' Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." — Marcus Cole, Babylon 5 — A Late Delivery from Avalon
It would seem so. Soon, Captain Shark shall be cemented in no-budget video glory.
In other news, don't expect the daily schedule to continue. Now I know what I'm doing, Star Dub switches to a 'when I feel like it' schedule, which is how it should be. It is actually therapeutic to try to talk about why the TF toy hobby is fun, which I find helpful in my current unhappy circumstances. I honestly couldn't give a toss how many hits the vids get on youtube. There are after all lots and lots of very competant video reviewers on youtube. Have a surf and check them out. I tend to find folk who take the time to put together wee videos are positive about their hobby, rather than the terribly tiresome 'that suXXor5' attitude you see on some message boards. I like watching the reviews on the Kalel Prime, CobraCommanderTFW, peaugh and thecollector75 channels. Oh, and that blueshift2k5 chap. And whoever that Ken chap is.
Excellent to hear that Captain Shark will soon be immortalised in all his glory. Can mere video hope to contain his magnificence?
You are taking a healthy attitude to this - the important thing is to do it when you want to, and for your reasons. If other people like it then that is a bonus, first and foremost fan stuff should always be for the purpose of bringing pleasure to its creator I feel.
Love the Blot one! Brings back memories, Blot was one of my childhood faves. I always had trouble transforming his robot head. I found that tilting the monsters head up, and then back down whilst the legs are extended, sometimes pops the robot head up. I'm a big supporter of the Terrorcons. I finally found myself a Rippersnapper last year and completed Abominus.
Brilliant work on the vid, Doc'. The 'What' s at the end made me laugh!
I was the one who let you know, I was your sorry ever after, '84, '85. Give me new toys and I'll decide, but I'm really only after, '84, '85.
I often find myself enjoying the less well known toys to a greater extent than the famous ones as there is more for my imagination to work on, so the likes of Blot is great. The Terrorcons are fab. I'd love to have a full set some day. I would dance a happy dance if they were re-issued.
Nick and I did a Bulletbike review a while ago which may or may not end up on another channel. Something strange happened on the way to my computer though and the sound was very distorted. So, ah, some creative editing was required. Behold! The Adventures of Bulletbike: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DL9ED6q71g
Phew, I had a few to catch up on there. All really good, fun videos Ralph. Y'ever need a 'special guest'...... ahem.....okay maybe not.
Also after watching your videos, i lost another hour watching TF adverts. An hour of sheer joy!
Best quote of the last hour:
"action masters and pretenders were all stupid toys... micro masters had potential but was not well used... as for prime asking who would give up transforming hability to become more powerful, I wouldn't have followed, like Jazz did..." - random Youtube commenter.
