This update is major to me, and probably minor to everyone else. Thanks to all of your gracious votes I won Best Video of 2003 at The Buffinator! I sincerely appreciate all of the support I've received from everyone. It was very kind of you to take the time to go and cast a lot my direction. And a special thanks to those I threatened with bodily harm if they didn't make the wish that I win; Thanks for not telling D'Hoffryn! ^_~
It's just so pretty... : grins : In any case, I am hard at work on a new video for everyone. It should be released sometime in the next 2 weeks. Apparently some mortal wiccan cursed me and I'm doomed to attend college until I get a law degree. OH WHY??? WHY must I be a LAWYER?? Isn't a demon close enough????

New layout time! It matches my logo. This one is going to be around for a while. So yay! ^_^ Also, new vid is up! My Immortal by Evanescence. I combined the two versions of the song to create the ultimate version. So enjoy that. More details in (you'll be shocked) the Details section!
A big thanks to the listers who gave their advice! And all of you should STILL all go vote for my Going Under vid here under the 'Best Video of 2003' category.

Happy New Year and stuff! Well, it is very happy for me cuz check it out:
I'VE BEEN AWARDED! Gotta love that! ^__^ Further more, I am up for another one, so all of you should go and vote for me here under the 'Best Video of 2003' category. I'd send you money for doing so, but D'Hoffryn keeps me on a tight budget. : grumble grumble :
Thank you to those who have joined my mailing list! I got some excellent suggestions on how to improve my next video, and I should be uploading the final product within the next day or so.

All of my videos have been transitioned to MPG format. The file sizes are slightly larger for the time being while I work out the kinks in my conversion system. Please do note that the low quality versions have remained in RealMedia format simply because, as I said, I am trying to figure out how to cut the file size down when converting. It's an uphill road, but at least I can teleport. ^_~
A new vid is coming very soon. Those of you who have subscribed to the mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org, you will be given the opportunity to preview the video should you so desire. Any suggestions you have to improve the vid will be welcomed at that time.
I also want to thank all of you who have taken the time to write to me about my vids (particularly 'Going Under'). I love feedback, criticism, and encouragement. And to those of you who DON'T write to me; well, you suck. But not as badly as the people who just plain don't watch my vids. They're REALLY the bottom of the barrel people.

At last! SUCCESS! My most challenging video ever has been created! Read the description there, I don't feel like re-writing it. Sorry, you'll have to deal.
Big changes are about to happen. I have FINALLY found an MPG converter that works!! My videos will now be offered in the wonderfully cross-platform format of MPG, rather than .rm. For those of you who wrote to me requesting the AVI's, I SINCERELY apologize for not getting back to you!! I will be sending you all detailed explanations as to why I suck within the next day or so.
A not on the MPG change... I am NOT sure why, but my converter doesn't seem thrilled with the prospect of low quality versions. It gives me absolutely lovely crappy video, but there is no sound. The program errors. ^^;; So for now? My low quality versions will remain in the .rm format until I can figure out wtf is going on.
And as always, thank you Anya for your amazing feedback!
