Quote from: steelbot on December 27, 2013, 05:02:46 AMWere you drunk? Serious question, I know you brought up eggnog - but compared to other videos you my friend were tilted a bit.The 1 minute of sound effects before the show for your "intro" and then the rip on G.Nooray's ill fated mention of sugar suppliment on page 217. Then refer to your notes and forgot where you were going or what page he discusses sugar...I was grasping on your entire video here to give you benefit of doubt. Really blasting the book based on it's Alien overtures and conjecture that Nooray DID throw into the cook book was for the comedic value i'm sure and with keeping in the theme.The recipe that you bring up about strawberries or lamberries or whatever it was you said, you laughed cause Nooray says it's been lost in antiquity but then you say "I've never heard that before, I've got a whole slew of paranormal books back here" - paranormals not antiquity. Sorry.Then of your massive shelf collection of cookbooks, but you don't know how a cook book is supposed to be??, but you're reviewing one...and don't know if the recipes are genuine recipes or not...some expert =P I guess my last critic would be...maybe a little show prep and how about if you're gonna add sound effects you do them in post...since you obviously had to post edit your show to get it ready for youtube...a little voice sync too.overall and I'm unsure how the other 5 people that viewed your latest video feel...But this one wasn't up to par with the others. I did however find the constant drinking while talking to be a big distraction, and the magnet image of winston churchill falling to be classic falkie.PSEDIT*Buy a soundboard if you're going to mix in audio sound clips or get a better software solution.
Quote from: littlechris on December 27, 2013, 02:21:25 PMI also feel that 18 minutes is WAAY too long for a youtube video!!, and I told Falkie that myself. But, I guess that is where future editing skills will come in handy. Its really hard for most people to commit to an 18 minute video. I say make them no more than 4 minutes! This is where show prep and post production skills come in handy. I hope to see this improved upon.My major complaint, is that Falkie recommended that viewers NOT spend $10 on the book and then he throws the book away in the trash. I made sure to email Falkie and tell him that was a NO-NO!! Especially since he was going to try to collaborate with snoory and the other sci-fi authors in the book and promote it to raise money for the Pahrump S.P.C.A. I dont think George is too happy with the video now. Now if Falkie can get Mr. Arthur William Bell to autograph noory's cook book, then I think he could really get a pretty penny for it at auction.
Quote from: Falkie2013 on December 27, 2013, 02:41:58 PMLook, I have never been drunk during any video. There's not enough booze in one shot of egg nog to do that and I think I've only been drunk twice in my entire life.As to show prep, whom are you kidding ? I read the entire book, took notes on things in it that I thought were strange or funny and commented on them. I had said I would review/comment on the book when I got it and I did.As to a soundboard, I am still researching such things and like so many things, it takes MONEY. I am more interested in learning HOW to do stuff first, the peripherals will come later as I have the funds to do so. I know what a soundboard is & will have to see which ones are affordable and which ones will work with a Mac. Then its a matter of learning how to use it. The effects I use come out of Itunes. Once I get training in how to do it, I'll use Garage Band. Be patient. 2 short months ago, I was posting stuff using my Iphone.
Quote from: Falkie2013 on December 27, 2013, 02:41:58 PMAs for synching (sic) sounds, that's what I was planning to learn to do with a visit to the Genius Bar before our car accident. I will be taking the Mac down there after the first of the month to get some training. As to my drinking tea, I still have a sinus infection and my voice is NOT what it should be. If my voice is hoarse I'm going to drink something. I had promised to do this video and felt I had an obligation to do so and did it. The last time I had a sinus infection, antibiotics killed it in about a month. I'm prone to them and will always get them according to my doctors. Next winter, I will stay in more to attempt to not be as exposed to potential colds/flu, etc. I am now permanently asthmatic and prone to bronchitis due to allergies and my first sinus infection five years ago which made me so ill I almost died from it.
Quote from: tertiaryimam on December 27, 2013, 02:51:10 PMI think you should use your purple microphone on your videos, too. It will improve the sound quality dramatically.
Quote from: tertiaryimam on December 27, 2013, 03:01:57 PMAnother thing worth considering is utilizing your cats for background/mood music.cat playing pianoYou can get a fairly decent keyboard at a Salvation Army or Goodwill for around $20. Just make sure you have batteries on hand --- usually 4 double As. I once bought a keyboard at a Salvation Army without testing it and the notes sounded like toad farts. I tried to return it but they had a no return policy, so I got violently drunk and smashed it on the hood of a cop car. They detained me and apparently I was threatening suicide so they put me on a 72 hour old. Luckily I didn't do any time, but they made me do 700 hours of community service at the same fucking Salvation Army. I got 'em back though --- I managed to steal some shirts when no one was looking. I got a really cool Korn T Shirt that way. It had some deoderant stains around the armpits, but I cut them out with my butterfly knife later that day.
Quote from: Falkie2013 on December 27, 2013, 03:04:38 PMThe purple microphone is connected to my my Mac thru a usb port. It may be that the connection to the usb hub itself it not the best, I don't know. But I have tested it out in preferences and it is working. I'm going to get a second one next week so as to be ready to use it when I have the other computer or an Ipad if an external mike can be used with one, I don't know if you can or not. If I had a grand right now I'd go out and buy a Macbook, but I am looking to saving up for a second Mac and an Ipad as well.
Quote from: Yorkshire pud on December 27, 2013, 03:05:14 PMAfter your experiences with keyboards, maybe he won't. I can't see Falkie getting away with CS in the Sally Annes.
Quote from: Falkie2013 on December 27, 2013, 03:04:38 PMI am still trying to determine which way I want to go with the whole video thing as well. Make them shorter and not rely just on Noory videos, which isn't easy because doing them is so much fun. He's so much fun to skewer given that he provides his own ammunition to make light of.
Quote from: tertiaryimam on December 27, 2013, 03:18:31 PMI'd say try to concentrate the information a bit more. There's gaps of silence in your videos, sometimes. I know you can't edit them out, but maybe establish some "talking points", then go through them one by one, in rapid succession. I know Noory's a near endless source of material, but there's some other topics which could potentially get you even more video hits. Justin Bieber, for instance. What is up with that kid? Or Lamar Odom. How's he going to choose crack over a Kardashian? That's some weird stuff there. I'd like you to see a video on why you think the Roswell crash wasn't Joseph Stalin, too. I think there's a lot of room for in depth commentary on that. Your reply here on bellgab was far too brief.

Quote from: Yorkshire pud on December 27, 2013, 03:07:08 PMSpend spend spend...That's the Falkie way.. If he had some foresight he'd wait to get a major sponsor..Sennheiser for instance.
Quote from: Laurakinch on December 27, 2013, 03:40:59 PMFor someone who is prone to sinus infections and asthma, why the hell do you keep a bunch of stuffed animals and other dust collectors in your apartment? If you got rid of all that crap I guarantee your health would improve dramatically. I happen to know this as my son suffers from the same ailments.
QuoteI wish someone would tell ME when you start getting paid. Is it based on number of overall views or number of views per videos ? I donâ€™t care if someone makes a lot of money doing this. Itâ€™s better than going to work 40 hours a week making someone else richer.
Quote from: aldousburbank on December 27, 2013, 03:51:31 PMWhy do you hate America and capitalism? Is it still with the Lexington/Concord thing? Btw, how's with the ice climbing amigo? I hear that the weather is nice in Kauai this time of year. Oh wait, always. So as I was saying, or do you just hate American ingenuity and/or Steve Jobs and/or American heroes and all for which they stand? Anyway, top of the day to you my good fellow!

Quote from: Falkie2013 on December 27, 2013, 04:16:40 PMI'm 61. Am I supposed to wait and do nothing while a major sponsor says " Sure, we'll spend our money to promote a guy with no track record, no views and no subscribers ! " ?YP is being an idiot. You get known first. And technically everything takes money to get the equipment to do better. If you start a band you get an instrument, learn to play it, get better at it, find like minded people and form a band. Then you have to get amplifiers, mikes and sound equipment and a sound board or mixer and go from there.Using a computer is no different. And places like Amazon and Fry's are not going to give you the stuff for free, are they ?Nor are the sellers on Amazon. I've been concentrating on buying books to learn the technical side of how to do stuff on my own so I can go further in what I'm doing.I know how to repair a car but couldn't do it because I am not skilled in that area.I know computers but much of my knowledge is either lacking because there was no reason for me to look at the technical side of using a Mac other than to post or look things up.Now there is. And I will do all I can to learn how to do stuff in any way I can.As for Jobs, if it weren't for him and Woz AND the talented people at Apple who helped developed the products so many of us use, we'd all be stuck trying to use lame products like the Zune and locked into a Microsoft only world. These aren't the days of the cp/m computers any more and if you don't keep up technically you're on a tech treadmill and you never catch up.And I still have a cp/m board in one of my Apple ][s and knew cp/m, basic and some other Apple programs as well as knowing the older versions of DOS back in the day.I could program stuff on THIS Mac if I went out and got the Basic software for it. C and C++ has eluded me but that's because of time and my always having had older obscelescent (sic ) Macs.Eventually I'll learn Freeway or some other Mac web design software. I liked Freeway because you can build a website with it in 10 minutes with no knowledge of html needed. If I worked at it I could learn HTML, I've got enough books on it around here.

Quote from: tertiaryimam on December 27, 2013, 03:12:12 PMI also stole a small picture of a cat. I gave it to this girl I liked at work. She was in her 40s but still smokin' hot. She has asperger's syndrome, too, I think. I have a thing for asperger milfs. Her fucking husband didn't treat her right, though. He'd always complain about her drinking. I told her she needed a man in her life who drank as much as her. Anyway, I eventually quit and moved away. I still think of her, though.
Quote from: steelbot on December 27, 2013, 05:30:40 PM lol - having known and dated women with drinking problems, I can assure you - this would not help most
