After work yesterday, I came across this.

It made me only think one thing: This completely messes up my plans, as now I'll need to incorporate this into the Death Note review, which was the next video I was planning to do (after the one I'm currently working on)

Then, this morning I find this - so someone else has done it first, which apparently breaks some kind of unwritten law, though I'm not amongst these guys and I doubt they pay any attention to what I do.

Yes, the Dragonball review came after a group of them had already done it, but I had also been writing it for months before their video came out.

So, here I am, officially stating my intentions right here and now. This is my list of things I am intending to review:

  1. Dragonball Evolution (done)
  2. Blood: The Last Vampire
  3. Death Note, Death Note 2: The Last Name, Death Note: L: Change The WorLd
  4. Mushishi
  5. Guyver, Guyver: Dark Hero
  6. 20th Century Boys 1-3
  • The Last Airbender (though I'll need to wait in case any more are made)
  • Cowboy Bebop (when it's finally released)
  • Ghost In The Shell (when it's released)
  • Akira (when it's released)
  • Battle Angel Alita (when it's released)
  • Gantz
[edited to add Gantz to the list]

Ok, I'm making some progress on the video. I intend to finish it by the end of the month.

Other than that, I done went bought a domain!
I've fiddled with a few of the urls dotted around the place and everything seems to be working as intended.

Happy New Year

And so forth.

Video is coming along, though I am suffering through setback after setback after setback.

The main issue at the moment is that I'm re-recording selected audio chunks which I didn't think were that good the first time around.
However, these chunks sound different in terms of ambient noise, which is confusing because I'm recording under the same conditions and with the same equipment as before.

So, I'm presented with two choices:
1) Suck it up
2) Re-record all of the audio

I refuse to do number 2.

In the interests of getting something out at some point, I may split the video into a couple of parts and post the first while working on the second. The structure of the video allows for this somewhat, as there are a good few minutes of reviewing other things before I get to the actual film. This is a rather ambitious video this time around, you see.

[edit] Also, when viewing this post I notice that I am being prompted for a user-name and password, presumably for my sidebar, despite it not being in a password protected folder (it's just in the normal public_html folder)
I'll get that sorted asap.

[edit2] Jon got that sorted asap.
