A Quick Update and Pondering (FINAL)

By the time you read this, you might have already seen the teaser video I posted today.

Yes, I GOTS ZE MODS!

I have big plans for the end of the year, and this next machinima is one of them. My next film will take me in a direction that I have been fascinated with for some time now. Honestly, when was the last time you saw a Smash Bros. machinima in the horror genre? I know of one director who has dabbled in this sort of thing, and she's only recently returned to making Brawl machinima.

This may be my final machinima project for the year, considering my bad luck when it comes to the winter months, I'm not even gonna try do to start anything new this year. Instead, my mind has been preoccupied with ghosts frommy past. I've said in a previous update that I was thinking of a way to give Reycralibur some proper closure, and I think I've finally got it!

After I finish my next machinima project, I'm going to start work on a Reycrailbur retrospective video. This film will…

ANGST ALERT! ANGST ALERT! | Why I've Been Purging

As I mentioned in previous updates, I'm going through a bit of mid-youth crisis. Deleting old videos has become quite therapeutic for me.

Only in the last two years have I begun to take this YouTube thing seriously. Right now, I could either move to one of my backup accounts and start over from scratch or I could stay on Speedy149U and continue to make machinima for the very few people that subscribed to that channel for nothing else.

On one hand, almost all of my old videos are now on Dailymotion, there's not much to stop me from hitting the reboot button, wiping out all of the content from all three of my channels, and staring over from either one of them. On the other hand, I'm a spotlight stealer. As long as I'm getting views for something, why get rid of it? The answer is: because I came to YouTube in 2009 to make Smash Bros. machinima, and I have completely strayed from that path.

I'm getting views and mild attention for content that I don't even make on …

September 2017 Update

Image
It's been a year since I've released it, but The Smash Sisters Series trailer has become one of my most popular videos and viewers still want me to do a full version of "2 Femme 2 Furious".














Who am I to ignore them, especially when nobody else watches my videos anyways? So, by popular demand, the next installment of "The Series" (working title) will take us back to the reality depicted in "2 Femme 2 Furious"! I've also finished the script for another episode in the "main continuity" that I will produce after I finish this. As I mentioned before, the Great Mission mini-series is more of a standalone prequel, so don't expect the actual series to be anything like that or "2 Femme 2 Furious".

Call it a midlife crisis, but I've deleted almost all episodes of Typhoon School and Reycralibur from my main channel. As I mentioned in a previous update, I'm deleting low-performing videos from my main channel; expect to see a…

Has My Little Pony Become Bigger Than Transformers?

It's bad enough that the third season of Transformers: Robots in Disguise is still getting such lousy treatment from Cartoon Network, but Combiner Force has so far failed to address all the problems that have been present since the show's first season. Namely, an overreliance on filler episodes despite this season having TWO major antagonists and a cool-looking gimmick that has only barely been touched upon since the season premiere.

Machinima.com's Prime Wars Trilogy also deserves a mention due to the backlash that its first installment, Combiner Wars, received, and due to me not being able to find the show on YouTube despite the fact that Machinima produced it. Turns out, Machinima made the series private, perhaps in response to the series poor reception. The only way to watch it is through go90, and all you need to know about go90 is that it's not available in Canada and Warren Zenna of Havas Media called it "YouTube, but not as good".

Back to Robots in Di…

Summer Update 2017

I hope to have the conclusion to Super Smash Sisters' Great Mission finished by the end of the summer. I was lucky enough to get one-third of the finale filmed and recorded before I came to a creative road block. Now I have to rewrite the rest of the film and record new dialog to match.

Meanwhile, I have begun revamping the archival Dailymotion channel to make it more accessible to viewers. Dailymotion is already a pain in the ass to navigate as it is, so I want to make it easier for anyone who actually uses Dailymotion to find my videos. As I mentioned in my last update, I'm deleting all low-performing videos on my main channel (and back-up channels). So if you can't find a video on Speedy149U, check out my Dailymotion page. I've unlisted all Reycralibur-related videos, since nobody was watching. If you want to see the series for yourself, check out the playlists on YouTube and Dailymotion.

As I am sorting through all the videos I've made over the past decade or s…

Sorry, But I'm Not Dead Yet | Quick Update

My mental health is deteriorating; I don't think I have much time left. ...But, since I've said that out loud, that means I'm going to be doing this stupid YouTube video thing forever and ever until I become an internet meme.

Tell Ed Wood I'll be seeing him.

You've probably noticed that I've been deleting some of my newer videos from my main channel and banishing them to SpeedyCXLIX or keeping them exclusive to my Dailymotion channel. The truth is that the seven years I've been on YouTube has got me feeling inadequate and jealous of other creators on this site, because after all this time I still can't get more than twenty views in twenty-four hours for a single video.

I'm seriously considering retiring from YouTube. Surly, there must be some other website out there where I can get a following by doing machinima and making the videos I want, instead of pandering to the bottom-feeders like every other "popular" YouTuber.

In the meantime, I&…

This is... Final Girl

Gwen Stacy is to be the latest in a long line of victims of an evil acapella group, consisting of Jimmy Fallon, the Fonz (or was it Danny?), Norman Bates, and the milkshake-stealing psychopath Chad Dillon Cooper. They lure in unsuspecting girls to the woods where they hunt them down and kill them. After Gwen charms the boys by breaking some mailboxes and sharing some drinks, an ice breaking game turns south and the guys show their true colors. Gwen is given a five minute head start before she is hunted down like wolves and a rabbit.

Unbeknownst to the boys, however, Gwen was counting on this.

If you let the trailers fool you, Final Girl looks like a thriller with a twist. The "final girl" isn't the one being hunted, she is the real killer! This would have been a great movie for those who enjoyed Hard Candy or the music video for First of the Year by Skrillex. But in reality, the film suffers from a flaw that is so annoyingly common in movies good and bad: the film tries …
