Okay, confession time. Remember when I said that I wouldn't update you guys on my videos? Well, I'm still not going to do so, but I'm also not going to keep uploaded videos a secret. It wouldn't be fair to you guys and it wouldn't be fair to me because I like to surprise visitors with what I have created. Ironically, they're not getting much attention, but then again, I'm still new to the scene and it's going to take some time for the views to come on in.
Speaking of videos, I'm a little reluctant on getting my videos promoted because I'm not sure if the moderator(s) would hold their end of the deal. I wouldn't mind, but I'm also a little uneasy about this whole process.
One more thing: I moved the links to the homepage so that you can find them much easier. I'll probably redo my intro video from scratch in the near future.
And I also posted two more videos on the homepage.
While it may not come as a surprise that I have a Google+ site (actually, two), this isn't what this blog is about. What this is about is that my Google+ sites has MORE views in one month than this site has in 18 months! This whole thing is all wrong! I've made this site for the people to see. My Google+, however, seems to be getting more attention. My YouTube channel's Google+ site has also garnered more attention, but not from the videos. It seems rather odd that my videos aren't getting the views, but the sites are?! Am I missing something? This whole thing doesn't make sense. I may be no AVGN, but you guys should check out the videos (you'd be surprised at how good (at least based on feedback) they are).
Alright, it seems that Weebly is having a fit about me uploading my videos via a file. So I have decided to actually upload the YouTube video itself to the website. It's easier and less troublesome for me. I apologize in advanced for this mishap.
I have decided to do some alterations with my videos. I will be placing them on the front page, but the videos themselves will have their own page. I decided on this because it'll be easier for you to find them and you'll spend less time digging through the website. I believe this will draw more attention to the videos.
It's been too long since I've done a DVD review (more specifically, one from the SummerSlam anthology set). And so, for old time's sake, here is my "long time no see" unbiased review of SummerSlam 1990.
SummerSlam 1990 took place on August 27th at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Now I've got to be honest; out of the SummerSlams I've reviewed thus far, this has got to be the worst.
Now where do I begin my tyraid? Let's see...how about we start with both Queen Sherri vs Sapphire and Dusty Rhodes vs "Macho King" Randy Savage. For starters, both matches were really weak. The first of the two matches didn't even happen, and the other was executed really poorly. Those two matches left a really bad taste in my mouth. Nikolai Volkoff and Jim Duggan vs. the Orient Express is another example of a really bad match. The tag team of Volkoff and Duggan was supposed to reflect on the relationship between the US and the United Russian Federation. While that concept worked, the match itself, however, didn't. It shouldn't even have happened on Pay Per View.
My next gripe is the opening match between the Rockers and Power & Glory. It really wasn't a tag match; it was a handicap match. Yep, it was Jannetty vs Power & Glory. If Jannetty had won the match, I'd be surprised. But sadly, that didn't happen. I felt that match wasn't entertaining to watch. My final gripe was Hogan vs. Earthquake. I'm not say it wasn't bad (clearly, it was a lot better than the other matches), but what I'm saying is that the match shouldn't have ended in a count out. I wanted to see a pinfall.
Is there anything good about SummerSlam 1990? Yes, there is. ALL of the title matches were entertaining to watch. My personal favorite was the InterContinental match, and I'm not just saying that because Mr. Perfect is from Minnesota, or that Kerry Von Erich was a little too green for an opportunity like this. The two out of three falls tag team title match was also fun, but one thing sort of spoiled it; and that was the switcheroo that took place in the 3rd match. While the steel cage match for the WWF title ranked last, it certainly wasn't that bad of a match. I would've wondered what it would've been like if Rick Rude won the belt.
Overall, the only redeeming things about SummerSlam 1990 were the title matches. On a scale of 1 to 5, this gets a 1.25 (new format alert) out of 5. Well, that made me feel better.
I would like to say thank you to those who got a chance to watch my Commander Keen episode 1 video. I also got some really good feedback (which was positive) and I plan on making more in the future. Like I've said, I can't be making videos left and right, I have a very busy schedule, I can only do videos during my off time and most importantly, I won't be filling you in on the status of each video. To me, each comment is just something that you have to be really patient for. My co-worker Gary asked if I'm going to do console games; and the answer is yes, but that's down the road. For now it's DOS games only. Once my YouTube channel gets noticed, I'll add videos there, but for now, it's just the website. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
I have an extremely important update to announce: it appears that my production team wants me to put the videos made onto my website first AND my YouTube channel as a second resort. When I asked them why, it was because people are more likely to see the videos (now on its own subpage). It is true that my YouTube channel is slow to start, but I'm hoping traffic will get going soon. But then again, it's all up to me to make them and post. I also hope you're enjoying them.
Well, finally. I got two videos uploaded onto my channel. While I did add some keywords to help (hopefully they'll work) the best and fastest way of finding my videos is just type in UnBiasedStudios. From what I understand, it's going to take between 24 and 48 hours before my videos appear in search engines. That's not really a huge problem because I can just get to work on upcoming videos. The only drag is that YouTube takes forever to upload.
While I do understand that the team has to do a check for anything they don't approve of, but what I don't get is why so many companies get so uptight about their content. It's rather harsh that the people who like a company (i.e Warner Bros.) would get upset that their content is uploaded onto someone's channel. In my eyes, I'd be flattered to have someone upload, say for example, a Bugs Bunny short. It would mean that someone supports Warner Bros. in a way. I'm not saying to encourage piracy (believe me, I'm on the other side of the fence for that topic) but what I'm getting at is just make sure that the uploader isn't violating any copyright laws and not making a profit from it.
