Hello, friends. I hope you're well.
This month of May I've been releasing new director's commentaries on my Arby 'n' the Chief season seven episodes weekly for my Gosu subscribers on YouTube, Patreon and SubscribeStar, as well as four video tutorials on my production process exclusively for my Hax0r subscribers ranging from brainstorming, outlining and writing to live action recording and machinima staging and performance. The tutorials released so far amount to several hours of material that intercuts between myself and desktop and console footage capture.
I need some more time to finish the rest of the tutorials.
Based on previous updates of mine on Twitter you may have expected all the tutorials to be done this month. I'm sorry about that. They turned out a bit longer than expected.
As always, if any of my Patreon subscribers would like to be refunded for a month's subscription please let me know via direct messaging on the Patreon platform, it's easily done and I'm happy to do it.
Once my tutorials are done I'll be resuming work on my typical public uploads. Likely upcoming ones currently include a Mediabyss episode on the movie Jack and Jill or Timecop, Professional Reviews episodes on The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Resident Evil 4 and others -- whatever I've thought of reviewing from a comedic or satirical angle I've found -- and an Arby episode that's a parody of the movie Akira.
I came close to finishing development of a big two-part Arby episode involving a dildo but I've halted that, perhaps only temporarily, upon realizing I could put my channel in jeopardy on the basis of nude depiction, even though my approach would be ridiculous and make it obvious that the dildo isn't real. It's a shame, I think the episode would be really funny. What bothers me about the situation the most is that releasing it on YouTube seems to be a roll of the dice regarding penalization (no pun intended).
I'm still picking away at writing Hard Justice in between everything else, it's a big project. I'm also 35 years old today. That's almost 40. That's practically 50. I might as well be 100. That makes me literally over 100 years old. Time sure flies. Hard to believe 1988 was over 10,000 years ago.
Regardless, I continue to film myself playing with toys, but I think that's okay. It's been my favorite job, and I hope you still enjoy watching. Thank you all for your continued viewership, encouragement and generous support and I hope you stay tuned.
Hello, generous subscribers.
My next big upload is Arby 'n' the Chief: The Reboot, an absurd, self-contained episode like in early seasons, about the toys recreating the web series "for modern audiences" with the help of Hollywood executive Skyler Loveheart, a character from the Arby 'n' the Chief movie I did many years ago.
I've been working on it for a while. It's been fun but I got stuck on it. I didn't know how to end it in a funny way, I think partly because I was a bit exhausted creatively after the season eight finale. I also got sick this month and was in bed for almost a week. I had to sleep it off to be able to concentrate, and get my voice back for recording lines. I'm good now, and I've now finished the script.
It's currently getting broken down, punched up and prop-shopped for. I think it's pretty funny in an insane way, I made myself laugh a lot writing it and hope it does the same for you when it's done. I expect the episode to be between twenty-to-thirty minutes.
I'm sorry I couldn't get it out before March. I don't take your financial support lightly, it's a lot of money and I'll always try to deliver something substantial per month, but I need a bit more time with this one. For what it's worth, I'm very happy with the script.
I've also at least been uploading commentaries weekly for my Gosu-and-up patrons and aim to maintain weekly bonus content uploads. They'll usually be commentaries but I'm open to suggestions for other types of bonus material.
Although I believe I'm done with serious story seasons, I have ideas for many more self-contained Arby 'n' the Chief episodes that are just gag-focused. A number of them are largely developed already, some near finalized, but I wanted to get this Reboot episode out first because it uses the end of season eight as a direct jumping-off point, and the finale's the last time we saw the toys.
Hard Justice, Mediabyss, Professional Reviews, music production and a currently unnamed live action sketch show are all temporarily on pause, but I've also been working on new material for each of those projects for some time. Not sure what will come after The Reboot yet, whatever I feel creatively inclined towards.
I'm incredibly grateful as always for all your patience and the tremendous support via crowdfunding, memberships, and merchandise and music purchases despite my post-finale sluggishness. Thank you so much, and for sticking with me despite season eight being done. I hope you're looking forward to more content from me. I will continue to make the coolest or funniest stuff I can.
