Meeting of the Minds Q&A/FAQ

Alrighty! It's here: Clicky! Clicky! Clicky! Clicky!

It's over two hours (after editing out about 10 minutes of blarg) so it's going to take me a minute to cut it down and post it in YouTube videos (if I even do that). I was planning to edit out more but decided it was all just too funny and I had to leave it all in, so this is mostly un-cut.

Seriously, I'm really not wanting to do that. That's easily 20 videos...but then again I know it won't get seen as much if it's just on our blogs. Bah, I guess I'll do it.

Anyway, enjoy 2 hours of us ranting and trying (mostly without success) to stay on-topic.

P.S. While our videos do try to avoid swearing somewhat, this Q&A thing does not. So if you or your parents have strong opinions regarding certain 4 letter words then you have been warned. Though I did take one section where we all started swearing and added bleeps just cause it's so funny to hear it that way.

  1. I ain't downloading this shit, you fucking asswipe.
    Your mind series sucked balls and you can't do a decent april fools day video for shit.

    My younger brother could make better jokes anyday and his only twelve.

  2. Hah John owned you, funniest troll ever

    ReplyDelete
  3. john please do not piss ian off!! ian has been very nice to record the q and a and then post 20+ parts on youtube he has spent alot of time on this when he could have been doing paintball or the next vid!
    so ian thank you for all the work you put into this~banjo tooie

    ReplyDelete
  4. Well John, considering Ian has over 5500 subscribers, and the fact that he has over 1,000,000 upload views, I would say that his mind series did not "suck balls". Also, he never technically did an April Fools day video, he just started a new series that day. Go troll somewhere else, because you are not welcome here.

    Have a nice day.

  5. Wow, where did that come from? I won't ever bother responding.

    ReplyDelete
  6. That was actually more funny then it was insulting. xD

  7. hey guys since krimson has posted a new episode its time for me to review it.

    shephards mind episode 20
    score 8

    this episode had much better jokes in it than last episode the editing is good you ended the drug trip much better than i expected and the wrighting is better too.

    but this vid is not without some cons you once again missed a chance to switch it to the hd verson i would like to see shephard mind switch to the hd verson of opfor for its last few vids also i hope you use the displacer again (the telaporter gun)and finly this vid is 30secs too short i perfer mind vids too be 7mins or more but oh well this vid is much better than the last one.

    also thank you for making the "this is shephard" line funny

    score 8 out of 10

    ReplyDelete
  8. hey ian any progress on posting the first part on youtube?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Where's my cookie? And WTH is Tomoli? :O

    ReplyDelete
  10. ian will you post the first part soon?

    ReplyDelete
  11. A Tamali is a type of Chilly, Anon.

    ReplyDelete
  12. To the question you asked the people who listened to it:
    I'm in the younger age, 14. But I don't understand the "If there's more swearing, it's cool" mentality. At all. I mean, I don't mind it in doses, it even sometimes helps out a bit with the feeling of the reaction, but not the "If it has swearing, it HAS to be cool!"
    Oh, and to Cyh's question, not all young people can't spell! I usually do my best to use perfect grammar!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ah, Tamali, THAT's why i couldnt find it on google :P And now about the cookie... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hey, I thought the idea of redoing Mind episodes saying what the machine-transcribed captions say was an AWESOME idea! That would be hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  15. As to continue what Ella wrote, I'm also 14 and not thinking everything with swearing is awesome, but I still think it's appropriate in the correct situation. And I also do my best to get perfect grammar, I'm even a bit of a Grammar-Nazi as well.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ah, that was so entertaining to listen to... I really liked the use of the censor beeps! xD

    Me: That's a (beep)t load of (beep)ck!

    ReplyDelete
  17. ian i hope im not pestering you but when will you post part one on youtube?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Let me improve your review, Anonymous.

    "Hey, guys. Since Robin has posted a new episode, it's time for me to review it.

    Shephard's Mind: Episode 20
    Score: 8 out of 10

    This episode had much better jokes than the last episode. The editing is good and you ended the drug trip. It's much better than I expected and the writing was better too.

    But this video is not without some cons. You once again missed a chance to switch it to the high-definition version. I would like to see Shephard's Mind switch to the high-definition version of Opposing Force for the last few videos. Also, I hope you will still use the displacer again. Finally, the episode is 30 seconds too short. I prefer some Mind's videos to be 7 minutes or more, but whatever. This episode is much better than the last one.

    Also, thank you for making the "This is Shephard" line funny.

    Score: 8 out of 10"

    Alright, that's it, I improved your review. Improper spelling and no use of capital letters. But I do understand that you were not always a good speller.

    ReplyDelete
  19. lol, I hope to start uploading them tomorrow. It's to late tonight, just got back from watching Robin Hood.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Holy moly, 2 hours wow,this is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  21. What kind of cookie do i get and how big is it, and can it be the candy tamalles or however you spell it

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ian, you can stop choking the chicken on every subscriber you get for being such a dipshit on a series of videos that suck balls.

    Not to offend, in a way it's a very good strategy for assholes like you.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Haha! Wow, this guy is sad! xD

    ReplyDelete
  24. Tomoly. Or Tamaly or Tamoly or whatever...
    Where's my cookie? Or do I get another "price" like... I dunno. A guest-role in one of Pirates 'random game'-minds?

    ReplyDelete
  25. This is so much funnier than I remember! Thanks for doing all this work. I hope we're not holding up the next remake~! ^_^

    @John: May you fall into a fire and suffer first-degree burns over 90% of your body...followed by a car accident that paralyzes you from the neck down. Ian is badass, and if you can't handle it then outdo his work, rather than trolling like a noob.
    Have a nice day.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Do not feed ze troll. He is teh suck.

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Psymon: I just love death threats. XD

    ReplyDelete
  28. @John I think you have anger management,if you hate Ian than stop bloody commenting on this!

    Now go away.
    Have a nice day.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, sorry Cyhanide for offending Ian the ass kicker.
    Yeah, he kicks ass for being "inspired" by Ross Scott's mind series, and I'm sure he kicks a lot of ass because he plays paint ball.
    Oh wait...
    He also knows the Na'vi language, whoops! I totally forgot about that, now he is even more kick ass!
    This man is no more then a Star Trek geek.

    ReplyDelete
  30. @John: Muahahaha! Careful now--your envy is showing~!

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Cyh: Go, kill him. I bet, it's way more fun than a simple threat. Or torture him with your Pikachu - if that's possible in any way.

    ReplyDelete

  33. Wow John, for someone who thinks I'm a moron you seem to follow me around a lot.

    Now, I don't ask, require, or accept any compensation for people to watch my videos. I've also never disputed that my videos are crap, I don't think they're that funny and I don't understand why people like them. But they do, so I keep making them and I keep on working to make them better. So, I'm not sure what your problem is? If you don't like them, don't watch them. Is that such a hard concept?

    Heck, even as a troll you're failing. I mean, what's the point? I'm not mad, just confused. I mean, you haven't made one valid point, just thrown out insults. Heck, Ross Scott is just copying Mystery Science Theater 3000 and the only reason nobody is complaining is because he does a good job.

    So, whatever, if you continue to troll here I'll just start deleting your comments. Go back to 4chan, you're not welcome here (though at least you have better grammar then 90% of the trolls out there).

    ReplyDelete
  34. What exactly is Tamali anyway??

    ReplyDelete
  35. Im a bit disappointed that Krimsin said that much. I was curious what kind of guy is he. He was quiet and shy during the interview and doesnt comment too much on YT. So it's a shame that he fell asleep there and didnt contribute to the Q&A :(

    ReplyDelete
  36. Krimsin was in there a lot. I mean, he only left at the last 15 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah, but he wasnt talking much or at least it was my impression ^^. Like, sometimes he would add something or throw a pun like that one with free mp3s. He wasnt active :( [or maybe im wrong, ill check that out later :P ]

    ReplyDelete
  38. Well, he was answering questions.

    ReplyDelete
  39. if i was considering making a mind series would you guys have any suggestions on what game to do it on?

    ReplyDelete
  41. No Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II? Shame. :P

    ReplyDelete
  42. wow thanks im strongly considering F.E.A.R., Doom 3, and maybe ghost recon

    ReplyDelete
  43. ian i love dark forces 2 but the main charichter in dark for 1 is the same guy in dark for 2 so if some guy did a dark for\jedi knight mind he would have to start with dark for 1

    ReplyDelete
  44. but then again he could do what corkey did and have flashbacks

    ReplyDelete
  45. or flash forwards into Jedi Knight II...

    damn, now I want to do that, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh god, it would be full of so many "I have a bad feeling about this..." lines :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I really need to make the funny video for all you people who say "Tamale" that I had planned. I should do that tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  48. i could see now barney the jedi in training or barney the SITH lord hahahaha

    acutly ian i think that would be cool to have you do the jedi knight series you could do both harrisons mind and a kyal ryner mind

    ReplyDelete
  49. "Left bat of Pong"'s Mind anyone? :P
    (Could be a two-person "mind" - one left bat, one right bat)

    Ian, you have so fucking to that, even it's just a 30-second-episode. Maybe use random games, which acutally can't have a mind and make a montage of them with 30 seonds to 2 minutes.

    Or "Sims Mind" - on simlish (or Na'vi, most people wouldn't hear a difference anyway)

    ReplyDelete
  50. also ian i hate being a pest but today is the 24th so when will the q and a part 1 be posted your probly thinking well he probly all redy heard it on the mp3 link well i tride it and it did not work so i have not seen any of the q and a.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Well, I must admit, I've been planning to use the "Ian's Mind" to do a quick bit with the Dark Forces games. I have them all (my first great PC gaming love).

    As for the Q&A, it should be up tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  52. TAMALES! Man that was chalk full of goodness.

    Hey thanks for answering my question, the one about what your favorite scenes in each other series.

    ReplyDelete
  53. @higgins: Ah, you can't do FEAR! Rooster Teeth already made PANICS and I adore Frank!

    ReplyDelete
  54. well feal free to do a mind series on it sometime maby after avp2.

    ReplyDelete
  55. hey higgins why not do system shock 2 its fun and scary and a good mind series on it would be awsome

    ReplyDelete
  56. Cinnamon Schnapps...now I wanna try! Cinnamon's my favorite flavor ever...well, spice-wise. Otherwise it's caramel.

    Speaking of which, that reward video? Caramel Dansen. XD I'd make it into my desktop wallpaper!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. FEAR would be a really hard one anyway, I'd try something a little easier.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I could do one for FEAR. Although my voice is shit...

    I'll try to fit the secret word into a normal sentence. Here's an attempt: Who ran over my Tamali with their truck?! I wanted that!

    ReplyDelete
  59. ill figure it out
    what about bioshock, it looks interesting

    ReplyDelete
  60. bioshock could be fun but you will have to know alot about the game and its lore

  62. I actually just played a little bit of Dark Forces 2. It didn't really run so well on my computer, but WOW. It's A LOT different then from what I remember.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I watched the Q&A. As a response to one of the question, I will deliver my own "Top 10 Favorite Ross Scott's Line":

    10:
    Freeman's Mind - Episode 2
    *opens locker* What the hell? Whose stuff is this? There's my name, but here's a bowling certificate, baby pictures, blue poncho...WHERE'S ALL MY STUFF? WHERE'S MY STASH? This is freaking me out."

    9:
    Freeman's Mind - Episode 19
    "If you can't take the heat, get out of the rocket propulsion test chamber! Hahaha, BURN! BURN! BURN! Physics rule."

    8:
    Freeman's Mind - Episode 18
    "It's not like I went to the wrong corridor, like I always do. No, it's-WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! - it's worse than that."

    7:
    Freeman's Mind - Episode 10.5
    "HUGASAKA HUGASAKA HU-Oh shit! Oh, shit! Oh, sh-*dies*

    6:
    Freeman's Mind - Episode 4
    "I am a matador! I am fearless! *headcrab attacks* Ahh, JESUS SHIT FUCK PISS! This things bite!"

    5:
    Freeman's Mind - Episode 9
    "Oh, what the-*headcrab attacks* OK CHILDREN, CLASS IS IN SESSION! EVERYONE TAKE YOUR SEAT! I SAID EVERYONE TAKE YOUR SEAT! DAMNIT, BILLY, THAT MEANS YOU TOO! TAKE YOUR SEAT! Now today's lesson is on- Wait, what am I doing? I don't know."


    4:
    Freeman's Mind - Episode 6
    "Whoa, trains leaving the station! All aboard, no not you, you don't have a ticket!

    Hey, what was that? Facehuggers! Strike one, strike two! Ahh, it's raining men...I mean aliens!"

    3:
    Freeman's Mind Episode 4
    "I am Captain Gordon Freeman of the intergalactic house of pancakes, ordering you to open!"

    2:
    Freeman's Mind - Episode 2
    "Am I hearing things? *gets in the room* TURN DOWN THE MUSIC, YOU FRIGGIN' BASEHEADS! IT'S LIKE A STRIP CLUB IN HERE! GODDAMN, JUST GET SOME DANCING GIRLS IN CAGES, WHY DON'T YA!"

    1 and my all-time favorite line in Freeman's Mind:
    *puts the crystal on the experiment* Oh God, what did I do, what did I do? NO NO NO, this is not good? LET ME OUT OF HERE! OPEN UP THE DOOR! OPEN THE DOOR YOU BASTARD! Ngh, I HATE YOU! THIS IS A BAD EXPERIMENT! WE ARE BAD PEOPLE! WHY DO WE USHER FORTH THE GREEN APOCALYPSE! *teleports* What happen? What is this? Am I dead? I don't feel dead. But how do I know? If this is like to be dead, then being dead sucks? *teleports back* Oh shit, that's the ceiling! Where's my helmet? *teleports to Xen* What the fuck? *teleports* Who are you? No, I don't want to be a schizophrenic."

    As for @higgins: I think Bioshock would be a good idea though. F.E.A.R, Doom 3 and any other FPS.

    im sorry ian i know 20 parts is hard work but is thare something keeping you from posting it on youtube already? is the video conponit giveing you troble? what gives?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Ah, well, honestly, I've been lazy/busy. However, my laziness is at an end (though I'm still busy).

    I posted it as soon as I had it all edited and that only took so long because I had other stuff getting in the way. I would have had some of it posted last night but it take FOREVER to render the videos and upload them so last night I just said screw it, I'll do it tomorrow. Expect videos tonight. I might not get the whole 2 hours up but I should have at least an hour up.

    ReplyDelete
  73. (posted the audio here that is, obviously not the video)

    ReplyDelete
  74. thank you for the quick reply ian i look forward for the vids (i havent heard the q&a yet)=)

  86. ...

    The porn bot is back. *laugh*

    ReplyDelete
  87. Well, I love it about as much as I love The Jonas Brothers.

    ReplyDelete
  88. @IRAMightyPirate It's easy. There's a "Captions" button wherever you see your video. Just go to that, select the file to upload, and tell it whether it's captions or a transcript. It'll be captions.

    @unkas9 Make sure you format the captions correctly (the Spanish ones for Barney's Mind were *not* correctly formatted). YouTube only accepts SRT and its own format (similar to SRT) for captions, and they have to be encoded in UTF-8; no formatting other than line breaks is honored, AFAIK.

    ReplyDelete
  89. @danielcdawson Yeah, I've been reading up on it. I'll format the ones unkas9 sent me and give him a copy so he/she can see how I formatted it.

    ReplyDelete
  91. hey, did you know that the download is no longer working? and if so, could you tell me where else i could get it? I REALLY don't feel like ripping the audio off the videos and combining them.

    That's not a pirating threat, i just don't want to do it. WAAAY too much effort.

  92. Updated the link, not sure why it changed.
