Along with trying to get back into a Youtube groove, I also need to start posting more actual blog and photo entries on here. D:
I just got ahold of this big boat dude, and am working on the coverage now!
Hey everybody~ I was at MAGFest X for the last week of my holiday (the first week of which I was dead sick with a flash flu). Video production is resuming and stuff should be back in the saddle like a superhero cowboy real soon.
I’m also doing this blog post to show a classmate of mine how WordPress works!
I hate doing this but to make myself accountable, I’m working on these videos at the moment:
TF Prime Cliffjumper
I’ve also made a few more pages for my Youtube backlog, including the somewhat embarrassing Hi Price of the Final Def! I might do some blog posts about old videos sometime to reminisce on them.
The Nerdsphere recently posted their 2011 Nerdsphere Network Awards! Many thanks to my overseas compadres for the kind words in two categories~
I spent the first 3 and a half hours of 2012 playing Skyrim for the first time~
This will be an interesting year. I’ll be heading into the heart of the snap-decision I made in the 3rd quarter of 2011, and come the fall I have no idea what I will be doing next.
If I had any web-relevant resolutions it would be to not post videos as soon as they’re completed as a habit, but try to build up a small backlog of finished projects and release them at a less erratic pace. But another resolution is to make sure I put school first, since I’m finally enjoying it. There’s also a good chance I’ll be dabbling a lot in filming on a DSLR (Canon 7D), which may change things up a bit for me yet again.
And maybe I’ll finally finish making pages for the existing backlog!
By the time the summer is over, I’ll also have written scripts and taken part in actual film production, if all goes well.
And at some point there will probably be a pitched battle with the Mayan supergods, returning to take back what they believe to be their own.
Happy 2012! 2011 felt like a thing that gave me a good hard push in a positive direction. We’ll see what the next 365ish bring to the table.
Hopefully I can figure out interviews on the fly while I’m there! Just haven’t had time to make contact in advance. ;_;
Anyway, here’s my list of booths I want to visit for buying things, filming footage, and attempting quick interviews:
Activision (738) – Matt Tieger/Fall of Cybertron
Bluefin Tamashii (1612)
Entertainment Earth (644)
Muteki Sales (149)
Toy Tokyo (976)
Probably missing some important ones, subject to alteration~

I will probably share this to see if anyone has suggestions to changes/additions/etc.
I will be moving to Toronto for a while on September 28th, in an excitingly uncertain and risky situation that I could probably better describe in a devoted blog post someday in the future.
As a result, I will be making it to the now Greyhound-able New York Comic Con! I’m really excited since it may well be the biggest convention I’ve attended to date.
Adding to that excitement is the fact that I have been approved for my first-ever press badge. I recently acquired a Zoom H4n audio recorder for the purposes of upping my audio quality in videos that aren’t toy reviews and streamlining my mobile audio recording set-up, which means I am going to try and put together some coverage of the NYCC that will hopefully not be as amateurly-made as my usual fare. I intend to make good on the press badge and try to at least give some worthy coverage of the independent toy company exhibitors who have, in particular, drawn my attention to the show. This perhaps means the NYCC will be a bit more work than play on my end, but I’m still really pumped. Hoping to record several Vaudiosonic podcasts, as well as a vlog and a couple of interviews.
So if you’re going to the show, I hope to see you there! Right now I suspect I will do a lot of loitering around any booth related to Glyos. Also, I got a ticket to see Jay & Silent Bob Get Old at the show, so live podcast audiencing times lie ahead!
First and foremost, be sure to check out the full listing of Battlegrip’s Glyos Week if you have any interest whatsoever in this stuff!
Anyway, many thanks to Phil Reed for doing a couple posts that linked back here!
He is a very cool guy, I met him at PAX and he totally was able to bounce giant Cthulu dice like basketballs. And he’s partly responsible for the Wing variation on the Glyos Rig!
