I forgot to mention in The Time Meddler post that it was the end of Season 2. Season 2 was a mixed bag, with some awful stories but some pretty good ones as well. Best story is either The Dalek Invasion of Earth or The Romans, the worst The Web Planet or The Space Museum.
So. Onto Season 3.

First things first. My name is Richard, I'm a former Coastie and current Chef.
Although I have all the training and knowledge to make healthy choices and to prepare meals that please not only the palate but also the eye...I don't always do it. Sometimes it's a result of too little time, others it's a lack of inspiration, Sometimes it is just plain apathy (I'll admit it, the last thing I want to do after a long day of cooking for pay, is cooking to feed my food hole). However, most of the time it's none of the above. All too often I just like to indulge my love of all the weird, wonderful, and sometimes down right awful items that turn up in our fast food chains, grocery stores, and even gas stations.
It is this love of the "Sometimes Food" (as our current health conscious world likes to describe things that are delicious...and bad for you) that I would like to share with you... Whether you take that as an invitation or a threat is all up to you, but bear with me.
The following are the ground rules I'm going to try and follow.
- I'll give everything a fair chance to impress or disappoint on its own merits. I know we all like to make fun of Taco Bell for destroying your innards, or that Arby's is non-food. But really this is all just easy laughs and also, I'm saying it now, if everytime you eat Taco Bell, you're on the toilet praying to any god that will listen...the problem is with you not the food.
- I'll try anything at least once. But let's get one thing straight, there a certain things I will not try. I will not try things that are known to be disgusting such as 1000 year old eggs, or Norwegian rotting fish whatevers... We all know they're not good, you don't need me confirming what you already know.
- I am not going to use "Does it look like the picture" as a critique of fast food items. Why not? Because of course it doesn't! The item on the menu is made by what is known as a food stylist, it is often made of non-food (seriously read up about advertising images for food, most of that stuff could kill you) and is primped, prodded, and airbrushed like your average supermodel on the cover of Vogue. (Is Vogue still around? I have no idea.) When you order it at your local fast food burger joint, it is being made by some bored underpaid line cook, who has been standing there assembling burgers all day, and really are not overly worried about presentation. So, no, I don't go into McDonald's and expect my quarter pounder to look like a magazine picture, and neither should you...stop it.
Other than that (though I may think up a few other ground rules as we go
on.), I'm going to try and have fun with this and I hope you will too.
Now with all the boring stuff out of the way I hope you'll come back later this week as I intend to get this truly started in a festive fall style with the first "Pumpkin Spice Round Up" where for the next few weeks we're going to take a look at some of the odder things out there that have had the delicious flavor of pumpkin pie (the best pie. If you disagree, you're doing it wrong) wedged in... whether it should have or not.
Hello, everbody there's a few neat things about video-editing i want to share with you.
1. Add sound accents
Many times the motion on the video requires additional saturation via sound effect. For example, if something is placed on surface you expect to make it a sound and you can play with it, faking the expectation: a wet sound with a hard object, heavy sound with a light one....
