“This video has been removed because it is too long” YouTube

Hey Stumps,

The LJ site gives a “too long” message, no video.
For God’s sake get the movie going, my popcorn is getting cold. :-)

Stumpy, what kind of accent are you trying to achieve? Sorry, I really tried but all I could get through was 3 minutes.

bentlyl- Thanks, that’s exactly why I posted it, to get opinions. What do you mean by “lacks personality”? Was it too long simply because you weren’t interested in the topics, or was it too long because it was really that bad?

I am aiming for a bit on the “cheesy” side. There are enough serious videos out there.

Sorry Stumps, I didn’t know it was real. I thought you were trying to make yourself sound different. I guess I should try again and just be a little patience.

Jahness- Actually, there are several regional accents in the State of Michigan particularly the more isolated and therefore inbred portions of the “U.P.”, one of which sounds exactly like that- very cheesy with a touch of hick. It grows on you. However, there’s no need to feel bad, it’s not my native accent (although I am a fifth generation Michiganian- an unbroken line of Stumpys here in Mi since 1853). We save such accents for when we want to sound like the beer swilling, buck shooting, moose riding woodspeople we truely are at heart. For the rest of the world we can clean up pretty nice, and talk any way you like.

Skarp- Which two are you referring to? There are a lot of video blogs on this site. I’m not sure which ones you mean when you say your appetite is already more than satisfied.

I thought the accent was real for the first minute, but then you kinda went overboard on it. The laugh track has got to go. I like the concept of a show all about setting up and maintaining a shop, but you added in too many gimmicks that just distract from the content. Personality should embellish the content, not overpower it.
I would suggest just strip it down to the basic concept and let the feel of the show emerge naturally over the first few episodes.
(I only made it to about the three minute mark also…)

Don’t give up!

I like the concept, but the video would not play, I’m getting ‘undefined video’ and ‘undefined audio’ on a Mac OS 10.5 (god how much I don’t like Flash….)

So, in leu of actually being able to watch it – here’s another tip – make whatever media you are trying to broadcast compatible with everything out there. Windows, Mac, and Linux (web equivalents – explorer, safari, firefox, chrome)

I also enjoy the Mere Mortals videos- he’s a great guy and his blog is nice and light. But it’s an entirely different concept than mine. Roy Underhill has more talent in his suspenders than I will ever have. But I never cared much for his show, a bit too homespun. I do LOVE his most recent book! I’ll have to check out the other guy you mentioned…

Sorry, it was unwatchable for me, also. Mckenzie Brothers in the workshop, eh? Take off, hoser (meant in the best way possible). I agree about the canned audience, it’s got to go. Try the simple way, just be yourself (without the hat, which you would lose first time you turned on the TS anyway) and then ask us what we think. Most woodworkers or wannabes are looking for knowledge or cool tools. To tell you the truth, I don’t think I could watch Steveinmarin for an entire half hour. But, his videos aren’t that long, and he still gets the info out there. At the very most, 20-23 min. will do. That will leave you time for commercials when you get big and famous!

Nailbanger- The McKenzie Brothers were Canadian. I am not Canadian. I do, however, like my hat.

I do think the “be yourself” thing is a bit excessive, though. That’s exactly what I was doing. I wonder if the Mere Mortals guy is that hyper in real life?...Doesn’t matter, does it? Because he’s being his creative and exuberant self by making his videos. It’s a personality that’s not for everybody, and I admit to not skipping some episodes. But, as a carefully crafted and well practiced wisenheimer, I can assure you I am being nobody but myself- and CERTAINLY not the McKenzie brothers…

But, the fact remains that you aren’t the only one who didn’t like it. I am glad you were honest and forthright in your opinion. And that was exactly the kind of information I needed to get so that I can make the changes required…
