    These commentaries actually help me out a ridiculous amount.

    Nash I enjoy these a lot but can you make the difference in volumes a bit less severe? It's not as enjoyable when you can't really hear what you're commentating over. Not a lot just a tiny bit would make it perfect. Otherwise good work as usual.

    Also don't feel bad about the oven story some things like that just aren't funny but you know what? That totally fucking was and since the kid is ok its not that terrible really. Plus didn't the bitch mom go to jail or some shit? Good fucking job.

    I have this problem with almost every reviewer on this site; you have to keep turning the volume up & down, up & down between the actual review & the clips.

    Actually, it wouldn't be that difficult to fix: a compressor/limiter. While syncing audio, just run the audio through a compressor/limiter, so that overall audio levels match. You can even set the compression amount, so that the overall product still has some dynamic range, but isn't overwhelmingly loud or quiet at any given point. Most audio software either has this feature, or will allow for simple plug-ins to provide this effect.

    You know what would be really cool? Turn it up in the right speaker, and keep your voice mostly in the left speaker. That would match up with the visuals.

    @Linka: that's a different problem, but I agree it's annoying. You've got to match audio levels for clips.

    The problem here is figuring out how to be loud enough that you can hear it, but quiet enough that you can understand the commentary. My suggestion above should help with that problem, and as a bonus, people can mess with their speaker balance to make it match where they need it.

    (You can also try running it through an equalizer that pumps up the treble and cuts out the bass. That's how videos in videos sound on TV, and the bass is what interferes the most.)

    I didn't think the Dune clip ran too long at all. Could have something to do with the fact that I never saw Dune, but still, 20 seconds doesn't exactly strain the ol' attention span.

    The tips on making one's own videos are very appreciated!

    I like these commentary help videos.It would be interesting to see what kind of gear everybody else uses.

    So let's see here... Good camera? Check. Good mic? Check. Good premise idea that doesn't blatantly rip off someone else's idea? Um, well, CRAP! Hey Nash, could you cover that in the next commentary, please?

    That first story reminds me of a routine by comedian Glen "That Canadian Guy" Foster:

    "If I don't get my way, I will punish myself further! Let's see just how much of me I can take!"

    Remember kids; don't drink & run at drivers.

    A man holding his own family hostage over a Nintendo Wii vs a kid stabbed by a teenager over a Pokemon card.

    Cinematic Venom should stop using a web cam.

    Some of us are sadists; if it didn't happen to us, it's as harmless as cartoon violence.

    I love the style of commentary you do, with both of "you" in the picture, it's a nice change from the standard voice-over.
    Also, thanks for all these great tips you're giving, it's really helpful.

    Thanks Nashster.

    And a lot of this stuff is exactly what I need. I'll keep me eyes open for better quality camcorders.

    Bye now!

    It isn't funny. Let me guess. The psychopath that put her daughter in an oven isn't in jail, is she?

    The thing is, with the cooked kid, I'm not laughing at the fact that the kid was hurt. I'm laughing at how stupid the parent was. Plus, the way it was described, it sounds like the kid is fine.

    It's up to you, but I think that, while it straddled the line, didn't really cross it.
  • Kari
    I think it's a good thing the infamous story choice happened, because while I couldn't laugh at that story or the accompanying skit, some people evidently could, and while I thought it was more sad than anything, I didn't want to write an angry email berating you for your complete lack of class, or anything. So that's probably a good standard to go by. (Also, one of my major berzerk buttons is people failing to "pick on someone their own size." If children, animals, or the elderly are involved, we will have words.)

    I'm actually really glad to see anyone realizing there IS a limit on funny.

    Thanks for the advice on video making. I've been wanting to start my own videos, but I have no idea how to start (plus I'm terrible on camera, kind of a problem) so it's good to hear this: expect that parts about money (I am hard up) but I guess sometimes the truth hurts.

    All i have to say is that the prediction of the end of the world in 2012, was based off the I-ching aka dropping three coins on a table. advanced, i know.
    also the lemming isn't a suicidal creature, the nature film producers just scared them into doing it and filmed it. so suicide and murder is actually a human nature. one we never discuss and hide with other bullshit because we're to ashamed to admit it.
    shame is the worst feeling. one of guilt and vexation. murderer in prison type shit.

    I'm spade and It's all in the family.

    i wish people would go to schools and talk to kids about suicide and tendencies. and why life isn't bad and how to deal with depression. keeping in mind 60% of suicides involve people with depression and that suicide is the second leading cause of death. so lets count, every half an hour a murder happens in america. so if the suicide rate and natural causes rate is higher...lets think.
    oh yeah, don't forget those good old cigarettes and drug use. i swear i've seen a million presentations about vandalism and eating disorders in schools. but its all the same shit. also remember most of the school shootings end with suicide and heavy drug use causes brain damage.

    I'm spade and have a nice day!
  • spade75

    oh yeah and 75% of teen suicide involve alcohol consumption. as a bartender i know alcohol is a depressant and only feels happy at first then the depression sets in.
    then keep in mind there is no "anti-suicide gang" thats going to try and stop you. i sure wonder why.
    the parents are never home and always working. so kids don't know what love is, and cant depend on anything but money for the feeling of security and growth. no one ever talks about there childhood, even though your financial past is the key to your financial future.

    I'm spade and drink fucking responsibly.

    They've been saying that war never changes from the old days of Fallout, actually.

    pissed at barking dogs = smash $250 piece of electronic equipment, threaten own family, and threaten destruction of your home and the rest of your worldly possessions? was this guy on fucking METH or something? Though sticking a 4 year old in the oven actually trumps that, even if the burn trauma didn't kill the poor kid the TOXIC FUMES could easily do her in.

    Thanks for the video tips and like the video in video commentary. I have some of the equipment but need some advice on how to do a good video review. Don't want to come across as the next in line for ridicule. That's why we have the Irate Lamer. Good job Nash.
  • sabata2
    I was a little worried this video would get preachy because of the name of the video, but this was pretty damned good.

    And seeing as that's 3/3 of your things I've watched that I've enjoyed... you got yourself another faithful.

    These commentaries have been very helpful Nash and it was good to see your first videos. You've come a long way since then but even back then you were funny. Looking forward to episode 25.

    Indeed War never changes. Could have used some Fallout footage but that's just me.

    Still for an early video of yours,this is still entertaining.
