So, important news, I'll be going to the Dutch Comic con! Jup! So you can see me there! I'll be there in, err, 2 weeks ago. So for those who have a time machine, go look me up and let me borrow the machine for a while we meet, that'd be great.
But yeah, so for those who were at the con, if you picked up a fat ebarded Mii with top hat and saying "Heyy kids!", you got me. Now you can use my Mii representative as pawn in your horribly violent street pass games, aren't you lucky?

April fools over with.
Seems the real Weird al favved a tweet from my girlfriend about the fake interview. So yay, he's aware of a person who knows the cartoon.
Sweet, now I'm as cool as the guys from his song "lame claim to fame". Of course it's from the Youtube version where the audio sync is screwed up as always. So I'm kinda happy it didn't get promoted.

Seems the videogame review was a failure.
Probably gonna drop that for last year, it was already near impossible to find something on the level of Tintin and the Smurfs.
As usual only the dissected got a lot of attention.
Not that I only want to do things that generate the most attention, but the reviews cost me the most stress and work anyway.

And man, last week's Sonic Boom episode was the perfect follow up to that "Sonic Boom represents life as a senior" theory bit. Knuckles having backpains, Eggman complaining all days start to look alike and he's losing sense of time.
Sure they weren't in the context of them being old, but damn.
There's no other Sonic incarnation that keeps reminding me of my old grandparents.

Speaking of Sonic Dissected, can I ask you guys your top 5 favorite things from the classic Sonic games?
It's for a little experiment.
Not sure when I'll bring it up in Dissected, despite April fools ruining it, I still wanted a Sonic break until I got at least 2 other projects done.

But yeah, bleh, I had an semi profesional animation project, then april fools and straight after a second semi profesional task, so as usual I barely have time for my own projects, so everything's still taking time.
This is my slowest year ever. bleh.

But hey, project's over in a week and then I'm back at my own projects, well I would if :iconluke-the-f0x: wasn't coming over to visit for a couple days.
It'll be great fun, but bad for my work.
Ah well, at least if we film some Dissected bits that'll save me animation time.

Hey, Rog. Guess what? It's my 20th birthday! :D

You know, after seeing your Plothole buster show (I don't really know if it's your show or if you just work in it but whatever.) I've been thinking about plotholes and... The big problem with plotholes is... It's really easy to come up with any weird explanation for them.
For example, the whole why did Eggman had a rocket in his base, your explanation made sense, but I could just as easily say it's because it was simply there before Eggman made the base since Egiptians had to use it in order to speak with aliens to aid them into building the pyramids.
Yeah, it's farfetched, yeah, yours is more reasonable but... Thing is... Explaning plotholes with story elements that were never brought up in the story itself... Well, they still kinda are plotholes.

Don't get me wrong, these explanations can make it easier for people to enjoy the story and I guess it's even fun to try and find explanations for plotholes. But still, doesn't justify the plothole being there.

I don't know, I'm not against you making the show or giving these arguments, it's just that I've already seen other people trying to defend a show or a movie by explaning a plothole with arguments they completely made up (Even though the plothole wasn't even the main problem with said show/movie) and it kind of irks me the wrong way.

It's also the fact that it kind of incites newer writters to just leave things as if they were granted in their stories rather than trying to make people understand.
And no, I don't mean leaving things up to interpretation, I mean, leaving something unexplained because they think readers/viewers will just catch up to it.

Still, I'm not trying to convince to stop it, far from it, you can keep it up and I'll probably keep watching it anyway. I just wanted to express my opinion on the whole thing, that's all.
Rogerregorroger Featured By Owner May 15, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Fair enough.
Which is why I introduced the third point, does it matter on the story?
If it does hugely matteron the story and it contradicts important rules, even IF there's an explanation possible, it's problematic.
So far with both Sonic and Shadow's confusion and Eggman's rocket, the plothole ends up working in the story's favor.
SpeedComics Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Student Artist
Oh... I guessed I missed that part... Sorry.

Gotta admit though, I never saw the Shadow confusion thing as a plothole.
The plot doesn't state that both Sonic and Shadow look alike (They kind of do anyway), it's just saying that people's confusing them. which never gets contradicted by anything.
It's pretty much like complaining about cartoon logic, honestly. It seems like people are trying to judge the story as a serious plot when it's just meant to be a fun little story.
It's even funny, people complain about 06 and Shadow for being too serious yet forget that SA2 works precisly for not being serious!
Rogerregorroger Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Hobbyist Filmographer
Well that's kinda the point of this show, to analys popular plotholes for being plotholes.
When  bring them in it doens't mean *I* think their a plothole, just that they have the reputation for being one and I do tests.

And yeah, Sonic adventure 2's dark bits are more implied and in the background then full front.

hey so huuh... i was bored then i decided to just comment something, so hey in that kingdom hearts story thingy there's that  abstrat concept that darkness is evil, but in final fantasy IV(II) people talk about darkness as something that just happened to exist, is not like darkness itself is bad, is what people do with it, and the prophecy even says that the one born with the power of light and darkness(cecil) shall defeat the final boss, so there, the coclusion is, light and darkness dont actually mean anything, they're just things that are pretty much against each other , so it only depends on who is stronger, the dude with light or the dude with darkness, because only darkness can defeat light and only light can defeat darkness, so yay take that sora in your face, but the game its still fun anyway, i dont even play mario for the story why would i do this with kingdom hearts? hahahahaha
Rogerregorroger Featured By Owner May 15, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Fair enough.
Dream Drop Distance plays great even tough the story is just the writer throwing endless new concepts in your face with little to no narrative flow.

yesterday i was watching that final fantasy dissidia parody you made a long time ago, and i watched again today but in youtube, and that animation when jecht is killing the emperor is kinda diffrent, what happened?
Rogerregorroger Featured By Owner May 3, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Dunno, either changed it up to fit the diffrent ratio or I vaguely remember I mirrored some shots to make them work better.

greetings, Mr. VanDerWeide! I've been a fan of your work since I saw "Sonic Movie Madness" back in YouTube. (it's among my list of Likes there!) I write to you with an idea for a parody= Sonic.EXE, that old CreepyPasta about the Demon Sonic who goes around torturing and murdering his friends and psychologically scarring those who play it. if you've noticed, it has, sadly, NOT withstood the test of time nor the rules to good writing; if anything it was removed from CreepyPasta Wiki, ironically due to not following the guidelines despite being one of the original videogame CPs out there, alongside BEN Drowned and the countless Pokemon CPs. that could be the parody: how he once was the object of fear but now he's an object of ridicule... like a former movie star who's now a wash-up. (mind you, I'm a die-hard fan of the concept and the character in itself, but as a writer I set aside my fanboy tendencies and call it as it is!) hope this idea would see fruition soon, or at least would be taken to consideration. keep up the great work!
