First off: Yay! Nikki fixed the blog so I’ve spent the day reposting all the stuff I’ve done so far this year to the archives and I once again have some proof I’ve been doing this shit for coming up on five years now pretty regularly and so my enthusiasm for OTP has returned somewhat. It’s still muted a bit by the fact that we’re moving in like 2 weeks and our lives are crazy as woah but it’s actually seeming like a thing that’s worth the effort when I have any additional effort to expend.

I had a whole thing written up so it got kinda rambly and was going to need a lot of manual editing which seemed like a bad way to format this. So instead I decided to just kinda wing it based on the stuff I’d found and the general topic (the TV show Person of Interest and the machine vision VFX it does) I wanted to talk about. This was ALSO maybe a mistake but it’s the video you get now so there.
I talked too slow and this one lasted forever so if you don’t have 10 minutes to spare just read the transcript. Otherwise…Here’s a video of stuff.

Hey there! Been a while since you’ve seen me writing this many words but I’ve realized this week that swapping to a video format for OTP means I don’t actually have a regular exercise that forces me to write a lot of words so I’m actually more out of practice writing than I’ve been in almost half a decade which is super weird. I actually like doing the videos though (which will probably come as a surprise given how little I’ve been doing them) they feel more connected to what I’d like to be doing in a way OTP hasn’t in a while and so I’m going to try a solution where I actually end up doing more work but I think it’ll end up having way better results. I’m going to start scripting these out beforehand and reading that script in the video and then linking to the video. It’ll always be the first link in any given OTP. This should also give me a chance to link to some of the stuff youtube won’t let me grab by linking in the OTP text instead. I imagine this’ll probably result in even less people watching the videos but honestly I wasn’t exactly burning up the youtube charts already.

In today’s video. I discuss plans for next week and very little else.
Today in “what is this world even I kinda have no idea how to conceptualize that this is a thing” somebody made a full length World of Warcraft machinima movie and managed to get Brian Blessed and Joanna Lumley involved and it’s just generally really bizarre that this exists.
In today’s entry I discuss the modern nature of canonicity while slightly sick and slightly drunk and slightly too tired to do any editing. I’m great.
So I am still a little sick and I’m also a dude who’s got a lot of shit to do before he moves in a little over a month so 5 original videos a week seems like kinda an ambitious output schedule right now. Tuesdays and thursdays will probably end up being just regular OTP posts ABOUT videos like let’s say this one for the foreseeable future. Exact format may vary. Void where prohibited. Not valid in a state of paranoid delusion where you believe your inner rage is another human being you hang out with.
