Off Topic / I have to make a short Film, HELP ME DECIDE!
« on: December 26, 2017, 04:03:54 PM »
Senior year of college as a film major. My final "capstone" project is to make some kind of short film 10-15 minutes in length.

I plan to do some variety of mockumentary (no, not like the office - more like Zileg or an actual investigative documentary)
but I don't know what topic I want to pursue. Got lots of ideas that could be fun, but who knows.

So yeah, you should vote on one of the idea above or write a suggestion in the comments.

If you want an idea of what kind of stuff I can/have done - look over yonder (this is a friend's channel, not mine.)

Off Topic / The debate of the century: help me settle an argument

Is it weird to start an online conversation with, "hello?" ?

I think so. Friend is convinced it's a normal thing to do. I need it proven mathematically

There's this dude who commented on one of my videos- obviously he just spamming people's videos at random trying to get support for his channel in the future or something like that. It got hit by my spam filter, of course, and it said this:

Hey! I love your video! Keep it up. :) I want to start making YouTube videos soon, too. It would be so great if you could support me with a dollar to get things started because I need equipment for my videos. There's no need to feel bad if you can't, I still think you're great and I wish you the best for you and your channel. This comment will be marked as spam because of the link, I'm sorry about that. Peace & Love, Dominik.

So out of curiosity I clicked on his channel and hit patron page.

37 patrons.

1,500 subscribers.

0 videos.

How? Does spamming random users actually work THAT well? How long would he have to do that for it to work?

Thought this could be an interesting idea to give a try- where the viewers come up with and vote on what should happen next.

Haven't been on these forums in a while, but it's always fun coming back.


Off Topic / Which Headphones are better?
« on: August 02, 2016, 01:09:59 PM »
So I'm trying to decide between these three headphones. In spite of the prices being shown, I can pretty much get any of the three for the same price.

So which ones are better? I've tried looking at it based on prices, specs, and different reviews, but I'm honestly still not really sure.

Headphones number 1

Headphones number 2

Headphones number 3

Off Topic / Should I even bother with this FB post?
« on: July 08, 2016, 11:28:08 AM »
So because of all the tragedy happening lately, of course Facebook is blowing up like crazy. Everyone's either saying stuff like "my heart goes out to blahblahblah" or "those people are scumbag pieces of blahblahblah" or "If you think blankety blank about this recent event then just delete me."

It's ridiculously stupid and I'm sick of it. I know I won't make an impact on anything, but I also really feel like venting about it. So I had one of those fun moments where you type out a big long dealio and then just delete because you feel like there's no point.

...Only this time I realized, "Hey! I can just go on the forums and post it first because, ironically, they're less judgy then my Facebook friends." Plus I don't know you guys as well. So if you think badly of me, I'll live. lol

So what do you guys think. Is this even worth posting?:
It's always the same. Everyday, it feels like, I check online to see how people are doing, and instead I'm greeted with news of some tragedy. If that was it, I'd be fine. Tragedies are sad and all, but it's good to be in the know. That's never the end of it, though. There's probably 20+ people who all decide that it's their duty to go online and scream at the universe for how this tragedy- sometimes hundreds of miles away- affect them emotionally, personally.

Don't get me wrong, I sympathize with the victims of tragedy just as much as anybody else; but when we go out of our way to turn it into a personal, divisive, conflict, or a means of pushing one's own political or moral agenda into everyone else's faces, it becomes a problem.

When we use social movements that are meant to unite people as an excuse to blatantly cause division because of differing opinions, it becomes a problem.

And when we decide that not only are those who cause death, worthy of death, but if anyone thinks otherwise, they should be excommunicated, it is a problem. Lacking communication, understanding, and empathy is the ROOT of most conflicts between people. Cutting off any chance for any of those three things to happen can never help solve the problem.

Off Topic / Different Video styles
« on: June 18, 2016, 12:17:19 PM »
So I've been doing some video projects lately, and I'm at an impasse.

These videos I'm doing are taking forever to edit because of their format. Basically, there's just one background image accompanied by a whole mess of edited-in visual illustrations like art, clips, photos, text, etc.

Basically, The Game Theory Format.
And if you happen to have a life and can't devote 5+ hours per day to editing, this format takes FOREVER.

So I'm trying to think of another video format. For the subject matter, vlog format with some editing mixed in does not fit.

Some people use stills of characters mixed in with some editing, but then that requires a fitting character and a bunch of still to be drawn. Which- proobably won't work either.

There are timelapsed videos of drawings (draw my life)
Which could work, but is a little weird for the mood I'm going for.

I saw This video in which he kind of recorded his narration whilst bluring a video of himself as the background to some basic editing. Which, could also work, but could end up being weird looking.

So, what other video formats have you guys seen? I know Nostalgia Critic also does a sort of "skit" format of videos, which would probably take far longer than the format I'm doing now. ...Not preferable.

Sorry for posting this topic twice. I hit enter two early and couldn't change the number of votes after that. Blech

We had another project that I mentioned earlier this semester, but now we have this group project in which I have to poll people again. So yeah, you guys should totally help me save a ton of time I'd be taking to ask people in person.

We were assigned to do some project evaluating the correlation between working out and resting heart rate. So yeah, answer away

And by 'work out,' I just mean do you do any sort of physically active stuff
Test your resting heart rate by putting your thumb on your wrist and counting the number of beats in 15 seconds. Then x4

Blarg, hit the wrong button and now the poll is messed up. Locking to fix it

Off Topic / We suck at D&D
« on: February 29, 2016, 11:19:50 PM »
My friends and I started a D&D session. Long story short, I got in an arm wrestling match, lost, and may have bet some oxen that we didn't actually own. While we were arguing the dude decided that it wasn't worth his time and left, but upon seeing the oxen, took them anyway.

So the dude who owned them now wants 500 some gold for them. We ain't got that kind of money (well we do, but barely. And it took 5 gaming sessions to get that.) If he doesn't get the money in a week, he's putting a bounty on us. In a failed attempt to intimidate him at night (to get him off our backs) our agent we sent in to do so, forgot what the goal was and instead thought we were intimidating valuables out of him- to pay off the debt that we owe- to the same guy that we are currently intimidating. He finds that the owner is not where we thought he was, and decides to just rob everything from the store instead.

He isn't caught, but this dude wakes up, comes to work and finds that he is robbed. So I guess he put two and two together and the next thing we know, there's a flag put out- calling for a rank three bounty hunter. The three of us are level three, so I have no idea if we're up to that kinda challenge. We left town just as the owner began talking details with the bounty hunter guild representative.

We tried bargaining with this owner, we tried getting rid of the flag before the rep arrived, we considered killing the owner so he wouldn't give us a bounty (that didn't go over well), and now we're leaving to find a banshee who can hopefully revive our friend. The owner can no longer be persuaded as he's basically now talked over the details with this rep dude. I am running out of ideas guys.

Now, without spoiling how tough a rank three bounty hunter is or any info like that which I wouldn't already know, I need advice. WHAT DO WE DO

I was going through my old videos and I saw this one. It's one of my favorite videos that I made- and yeah I posted this on the gallery before, but I made this two or three years ago around the time of greenlight. By now we have a butt-ton more people and hey, why not. /shamelessRepost

Off Topic / Where's the Fair use? #WTFU
« on: February 19, 2016, 03:09:27 PM »

Someone was going to make a topic eventually

Nostalgia Critic made a video ranting about YouTube's bull-honkey copyright system. IHateEverything joined in mentioning how his channel was taken down. It's become a sort of movement of sorts- there's already a butt-ton of videos with #WTFU on YouTube.

Personally, due to stupid copyright strikes, YouTube has basically stolen what could have amounted to hundreds of dollars from me. They're impossible to fight and it needs to stop.

« on: February 15, 2016, 02:31:02 PM »
I have a project for my Biology class where I gotta list 24 people's phenotypes for physical characteristics. I don't feel like finding 24 people in real life, so I thought- HEY, why don't I just make a poll online?

So shabam. Tell people how cool looking you are.


Off Topic / What would you do? Hypothetical sitchy-ation
« on: February 13, 2016, 06:43:33 PM »
You are locked in a large building. You have to keep moving because you have a clone who does everything you did a minute ago. If you touch him, you die.
Your clone is basically the ghost you race in mario kart speed trials, only you die if you touch it.

The question is: how do you try to stop it/escape

The answer is: nothing. I just want to know how you guys would go about this
