"I never read books, they're just Latin and Greek"
Sorry, another lyric-based title.
of course about Latin and in Latin. The reason for the wooden
delivery, and particularly the horribly poorly acted second-to-last
line, is mainly that it's being read. I'm also sure the quality of the
language is quite poor, being ungrammatical and poorly pronounced.
Having said that, this and its twin on the other channel have been
deliberately made at low-quality to save upload time. I was
experimenting with a new format which reduced vertical resolution to 480
pixels and audio sampling to 44.1 kHz. The lighting is also horrible
in this one - it's from a non-"solar" compact fluorescent tube. There
have long been problems with videos made in the living room due to the
low lighting conditions, which interestingly are not noticeable to the
naked eye. A TV documentary crew once removed the light bulb while
filming without telling me, so it has a track record of association with
Yesterday's video on the
Other Channel may have been disappointing to viewers there. It was a
round-up of news about the ebook, its print version (nowt so queer as
folk), the hypnosis script slideshow plans and also the main channel. I
always feel i'm pushing things too hard and coming across as desperate
when i promote something and that will naturally communicate itself in
the tone of the video in a manner which seems beyond my control.
However, i did publicise the main channel and ask people to take a look
at it and consider subscribing.
It's a matter of some
concern that the first video the people coming over from the other
channel were confronted with, unless they simply followed the links to
individual vids likely to appeal to them, would've been that poorly lit
subtitled offering in a foreign language. Therefore, today's plan is to
make a livelier video about "having a life", which is in fact imminent.
