Still here

Just want to let people know that Barney's Mind - Episode 15 is going along nicely. I almost have the script done and have 1/3 of the dialog recorded. Since I'm doing a full script the dialog will go a lot faster than usual and the video will probably not take too much time.

So, I still don't know exactly how close I am to finishing but I can guarantee it will be out before Christmas (probably well before). Aside from that, can't get much more accurate, I'll post here when I know more.

Anyway, I had a good Thanksgiving, visited my folks and helped them out, watched some movies, and did some other stuff. Finished DM'ing a Dungeon's and Dragons Campaign (I'm a nerd, shud'up :P). My car is finally fixed and inspected (like 5 months overdue, stupid car). I've been playing a lot of paintball and have been having a blast. We're going to try making a semi-scripted paintball movie for you YouTube guys so look for that in the near future.

Aside from that, not much else to report, things are going along fairly well without too much drama (but plenty of action).

So, how was your guys' holidays? Any ideas what you'll be getting for Christmas?

  2. I didn't go anywhere, but I totally enjoyed Thxgiving. Don't freak out when I say this, but I actually turned 15 years of my life on every holiday into a disaster-don't ask me why-but I made myself some guidelines to follow in order to avoid that happening again. Have you seen my Youtube channel? One of my videos has your name in it.

  7. Hey, man. It's good to know that you've been having a nice time.

    For Thanksgiving, our family went out to a Diner and I had a nice Crabcake on top on chicken, and as the menu called it, "Floating on a sea of Marinara sauce."

    Also, do you have an Xbox (360) because I'm getting Xbox LIVE for Christmas, and I'm hoping we could play sometime!

    Sincerely, John Freeman. (WHO NEEDS HIS WEPON!)

  11. oops sry on my post above it bad spelling forgot to correct it

    ReplyDelete
  12. @anon: Damn, you're right, I totally missed out on calling them mind flayers.

    I did do a small dnd reference in one of the later episodes in xen where I mentioned that I could really use a bag of holding but then decided that douchbag would be a much better than a bag of holding.

  20. the dnd game how was it?
    was it fun dming it?
    and what was the plot in it?

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Anon: Great, best one I've done in a while. Always fun DMing though I'm looking forward to just being a PC in our next campaign (I haven't played a PC in about 3 years). The plot was roughly the PC's are abducted from various places, wake up in cell, forced to mine for artifacts on a far away island, pc's then broke out, built a raft and escaped. PC's then found a merchant ship that was smuggling weapons but they got attacked by a ship from the island they escaped from. They escape again, this time with a very powerful artifact the evil dudes are looking for, use it to kill a dragon and escape. They find the 2nd piece to the artifact, take it to Elminster and he shows them how to use it, they then find the evil dudes are invading farun and they have to use the artifact to stop them with the help of an army. Evil dudes die, yay, campaign over.

  29. @Anon, periods and paragraphs are your friend.

    Dispite that, I read what you wrote, sounds cool

    ReplyDelete
  30. i was alot of the dm hinted that the story may branch depending if player three dies gets infected or escapes. anyway if your still going to remake the first 3 vids you could use the mindflayer refance.
    oh yes periods are my bests freinds ever lol

    ReplyDelete
  31. i ment to say fun at the beging sry

    ReplyDelete
  32. and i forgot to say what happend to the hired guns (npc) most of then got infected by player one or by some of the other infected some got killed. thare is one npc still alive thats not infected but hes hurt bad.the dm also hinted that if p3 gets infected or dies the storie may jump three months later when corpeation sends a new team to find us and the frighter.

    by the way im thinking of dming my own game any pointers i may need to know? im adapting the half-life game into d20 game form
