Dailymotion page has been vandalized

Every video I posted on there is now gone.
I Don't know the specifics yet--I'm waiting for a reply from their service division--but obviously the older blog links are going to be down for a bit.
I was going to do an administration week after I finished with my next production block next week to sort them out (and switch them back over to blip links), but until them I'll remind you all that the blip page has every scripted episode but my first 4.
I've likely lost the early Vlogs and my let's plays, but everything else has a backup.

So I didn't get on That Guy with the Glasses

And I’m Bummed, and a few other emotions I’d rather not get into.

But that’s okay.

'Cause inevitably? I gotta do this for me.  Me, and for all of those that DO watch.
And not because It’s the only thing that’s earned me money while I’ve spent the last 3 freaking years constantly applying Thousands of times for entry-level and temp work.
Oddly, TGWTG is the first company to send me a rejection letter and not just leave me entirely hanging.  Ironic, No?

I don’t have a lot of friends, I don’t have a lot of Fans. Or Viewers. But those I do, I’m thankful for.
Besides, I’m working with and have connected with some fun people.

But from what I’ve seen from this talent pickup?
The people that got on did so by being known personalities in their own right already even before being chosen, having long networked in most of their cases.
While it puts it even harder for the newbies trying to get in the door—especially if they do something that’s not part of the mainstream—or the vets still struggling with the same, it shows I need to network more as well.
A Lot more.
Far, Far more than I am comfortable with.
I have Extreme (ridiculously extreme) social anxiety, and while doing this show has helped a lot with that, I can’t have that keep me back from trying to connect with other people.
I also need to try and be funnier, more entertaining; not just nitpick and show ways how a narrative could have been improved. Don’t just be angry at idiocy, do more skits (as much as I can with 0 budget), stretch for the jokes that I might not find funny, but someone else could.
And try to do more short material. While I like looking at series and longer narratives, it wears on you; you know?
…Well, that’s something for next year. I’m editing my September/October episodes right now, and Have rough’s for everything through December right now.

Yes, I work that far in advance. I have for a LONG time now.  It’s how I consistently release video’s that can at times run upwards of 40 minutes in length on a weekly schedule for two years.

Anyways, thanks for everyone that watches, thanks to my cohorts on Manic Expression and ROTC/Independent Mayhem, and Peers on RVT, Geekvision, RTGomerProductions and other reviewer sites I haven’t discovered.

Hi, I’m Davis. On the Internet, I go by Des Shinta. I’m 25, and live in the Midwest.
I review Tokusatsu, Role-playing video games, and media and Franchises that have impacted my life.
Nice to meet you.

Oh, and if you guys wouldn’t mind? A few shameless plugs would be nice. I’ll return the favor when I can.

Cameo: The literary lair "the Road not taken"

In a new short film, Michael becomes disillusioned by the show and thinks about ending it.

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
~Robert Frost

Michael asked for cameo's, and wanted to return a favor for some of the unused stuff I had left over from the lightning returns.
Check him out, he does a scripted-Vlog style book reviews (a subject material lacking in reviewers for obvious reasons--lack of visual media to put in the video) and a series on how problematic shows and movies could have been fixed.

Shinta's Take on: Outlaw Star

Yeah, when I said no new episode this week?  I lied.
Still recovering from last month, Shinta reminisces on one of his old anime favorites.
