HOLY BATMAN!

A observant fan just pointed out that I just got subscribed to by non other than the official machinima channel! Holy Batman and Robin on a iceberg this is crazy! What does this mean? Is it actually Ross Scott or is it just the machnima website people or what? So many questions.

Anyway, in other less exciting but I'm sure plenty interesting news I released the first minute of Barney's Mind - Episode 14 for you guys. I felt I wasn't getting enough e-mail from YouTube so I figured this would fix that until I release the real episode which should be fairly soon as I stayed up late last night and got over 50% of episode 14 done.

Might have some paintball videos this Sunday as I've rigged my cheap-o camera to my hopper on the gun so I can get in-game footage and such.

ummm...not much else to say. RAWR!

Waffle copter

So, things slowly calming back down. Both the paintball and the Left 4 Dead tournaments went well. I came in 2nd place in the paintball tournament and our team made it to the 2nd round in the l4d tournament (and then got curb stomped by a semi-pro l4d team).

Good times though, had lots of fun. Anyway, so I've gotten a little more work done on Episode 14 but not as much as I wanted to do by this point. I'm definitely going to get a bunch of work done tonight so I hope to have the episode at least half done by the end of the week. If I really push I may have this done early next week but no promises. Like I said earlier, this is a long episode.

Anyway, I'm probably going to release another funny episode sometime this weekend and I'll also release a section of the real episode 14 for you guys tonight.

CraZy with a capital Z!

So, episode 14...yeah...stuff.

Episode 14 (the real one) is gonna be a long one (20 minutes) as I mentioned in my last update. Consequently it's going to take me twice as long to make. However, I've recently run into some crazy.

I've suddenly gone from somewhat busy to monster muffins on a rampage busy. It still have enough time to get everything I want/need to do done, but I'm really pushing it. I've started playing regular weekend paintball so there goes almost all of Saturday and Sunday. On top of that I'm now in a semi-pro L4D tournament for the next two weeks so now I have to practice for that as much as I can (you really have to twist my arm to get me to play video games I'll tell you what :P). Our first game is Wednesday. Then there's TV, football season plus new episodes of House and Castle are eating my Mondays. So that leaves Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for my household chores and Barney's Mind.

Now, before you all panic, don't worry. I've got episode 14 about 1/4 of the way done and since I've taken a little break from it (haven't touched it in about a week) I'm brimming with Barney's Mind ideas and enthusiasm. So, I thoroughly "plan" on having it out sometime next week (even if it's Saturday night at 11:59 pm). It may take longer(or shorter) but that's when I hope/think it will come out.

This is probably good practice because after this is the finale and that's going to be a half hour long or more! Thankfully I already have about 1/4 of that done but, still, that's going to take a lot of time.

In the mean time, I've got another crazy episode saved up that I'll release soon to help out the wait (they're so fun and easy to make, totally doing a ton more when I'm done with Barney's Mind). Also, I'll release a trailer for episode 14 when I get within a few days of finishing it so that you guys don't have to keep wondering when it's going to come out.

Anyway, got a paintball tournament this Sunday and our first Left 4 Dead match tomorrow, wish me luck!

Update

So, I finished recording the footage for Episode 14 (the final one before the finale) and the total time came to 20 minutes. Blarg. So instead of doing two episodes I've decided to do one long two part episode for no good reason.

So, to help you guys wait here's something completely different: Barney's Mind - Not Episode 14

P.S. This was inspired by this video.
P.P.S. Yes, I know that was un-original of me and mine sucked in comparison but I don't give a crap. I was just dicking around and made this in one take and after making it thought you guys might find it funny.
P.P.P. I'm now going to go eat 20 throat lozenges...oww.
