10 Jul

500posts

So, post 500. Since it’s inception back in 2012 it’s been quite a journey, and it’s changed quite a bit. Much has transpired, lives have changed and much material & ideas have been scribbled and typed, yes, it’s been an “interesting” time.

All I want to say is to all you who have come through this site, for whatever reason, Thank you all.

Thank you for supporting the site and reading my stuff. I promise that I’ll try and keep adding to the content here and try and make this site more useful and relevant to you all.

Lets raise a glass (or cuppa in my case) to the future and another 500 posts and 4 more years…

Cheers guys!!

4xD: Question?: To video, or not to video?

I’ve given this some time to think over. While I sit here writing the next Dungeons of doom article (Honestly, it’ll be coming in the next day or so!) Anyway, I digress, and I’ll get on with my point.

Up till now, I’ve been armed with this blog, my camera and my dry (and often shit) wit. However, this Chrimbo I got a decent enough video cam.

I reckoned it may have been time, at least to attempt to bring some extra dimension to this site from time to time, adding some video tutorials, some makes, tips and suggestions, and possibly a rant or two along the way.

But, it isn’t all without some trepidation. I have a solid style here on the website, and it is something that I would like to continue even in video form, matching in both visual and content, I just left me to wonder if I’m ready…

I mean, I’m pretty sure that given enough effort I could churn out some fine video content, all well integrated in terms of my desired style and fit, but to become a media star (albeit a z-lister at the most) I’m not so sure that I’m 100% ready for that kind of shit. To be perfectly honest, even though I have a bazillion ideas for Grinning Skull related video content, I’m convinced that even with all the best intentions, for now at least, that part of the interactivity here, won’t be for a while. I mean, would any of you even want to see it?

Can I not get across what I feel I need to articulate in a blog post, that I could in a video? I think until I’m fully committed to putting everything into such endeavors, I should remain as I am. I’m not going to rule out if I ever get any sudden inspiration to do it, hell, I even have some stuff done like a couple of vids and titles etc,  just don’t expect me to release anything yet, well not unless I’m really happy with the end result.

Plus my PC is not in the best of conditions to be rendering huge chunks of HD footage (trust me, it’s not good even with the most basic of tasks!)

Anyway, let me know your thoughts in the comments what do you think? Would you welcome the inclusion of video content here? Are you ready to hear the dulcet tones of my northern accent? Only the viewer can decide….

Catch you all later…
