Hello! Thank you for using yiff.party!

We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!

Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.

Donation progress for August 2020

So far, approximately $0.00 has been raised out of our target of $250.00. We're about 0% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!

yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 31 August!

How to donate?

At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.

Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Litecoin (LTC)
Why can't I donate through other means (eg. PayPal)?

Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.

There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

Subscribers are a funny thing on YouTube. In practice, they don't do terribly much for most channels, but they're a little different for me. I never ask people to subscribe, and I never ask people to pledge to my Patreon, but you're all here anyways, and that makes both subscriber and Patreon milestones matter that much more. So thank you all, truly, for helping me make my weird interests into my career.

It's funny how asking for subs at the end of a video actually works for most Youtubers. I doubt it would work as well on 30+ minute videos anyway but your sub and patron amounts speak volumes regardless. You've earned each and every one.

Yet another brilliant video by an undisputed YouTube documentary master! The subject matter, while unexpected, is nonetheless unique and insightful. I actually somewhat connect with this video personally, as I have relatives who are involved in the German winemaking industry. I'm just a bit unsure if you'll be doing a Q&A regarding the scandal later on? I've also had the rather silly thought of you doing another Livestream chat series, where you drink wine instead of tea! Anyways, thank you for the new video, and your fantastic content in general. Looking forward to the next one!

Osho International has Removed my Rajneeshpuram Video 2020-04-19T17:41:13+00:00

Once again, Osho International has claimed old news footage as their own on YouTube and is using this to block my Rajneeshpuram video. It seems unlikely that they have bought the rights to this old footage, but rather are doing this to censor discussion about their failed commune and the brutal actions of some of their old members. I'm going to do what I can to bring it back online. So far, I've attempted to blur the section, but that doesn't seem like it will help. YouTube has offered to let me trim out the section completely, but I would be remiss to do so, as that section includes the fact that Sheela ordered a woman's uterus removed and people drugged until they agreed to stay. I'm going to spend a couple of hours looking into this, but if I can't bring it online quickly, then I may have to just finish my new video and then try to get the Rajneeshpuram video back up afterwards.

Man dmca is so ineffective if someone can claim to be the holder of some content without real proof. Seems like there is relatively no risk in lying on them because people rarely decide to go to court over it due to expenses.

good luck my man. They cant possibly organize an offense so you should hardline into keeping the content in the video and I do believe the video falls under fair use. If need be just trim it down to six seconds but still include it

+1 for LBRY because if you set it up to connect it can just clone all the videos from your account in the future without you doing any extra work.

User #14669425 - 19 Apr 20 20:35
You can also keep the video up on alternative video websites. Bitchute, Vlare, Minds, LBRY, Brighteon, all of these places can be used when you have videos taken down on Youtube. I have a music video that gets worldwide blocked on Youtube every time I try to publish it (because muh copyright even though I make no attempts to monetize it or claim the content as my own and give credit to every source), but it has successfully remained on all of these other sites that I use without any repercussions.

I Played Hurdy Gurdy for an EP 2020-04-02T18:10:04+00:00close

An EP for which I played the hurdy gurdy is now available, named "Answerer." This project is the brainchild of the composer for Down the Rabbit Hole, Ryan Probert, who took my improvisation and turned it into five experimental electronic pieces. The one exception is Track 3, in which he gave me sheet music to use. Still, on every track, the goal was to create an "organic" feeling, which was an interesting challenge given the mechanical nature of the instrument.

Progress Update: 3/2/20 2020-03-02T09:32:06+00:00

Basically nothing. I've essentially taken the week off as I wait for my research assistant to get through the book, which isn't a dig at them at all since it's quite thick and they're doing this in between their day job, but it has left me twiddling my thumbs a bit. It's been an absolute treasure trove of obscure information and totally worth the wait, and it should only take another day or two, but I'm bored, so I'm probably just going to start up on the script again which MIGHT be a waste of time since I might have to alter a ton of it later but whatever, I want to write and I'm getting antsy.

Arcaxon is making excellent progress on the graphic design front, creating quite a few new assets. They should be ready well before I'll need them.

The Q&A for the Purr Cat Cafe is coming out in the next few days.
I Need Your Feedback 2020-01-30T23:08:09+00:00

Right now, I'm facing a rather difficult decision, and I'd like to hear the opinions of my patrons, since you all are a large part of what allows me to make my videos full-time.

As many of you have seen, I've begun to branch out just a little bit in my free time, experimenting with other forms of interaction with my viewing public. Shows like The Warrens and joining people like Jabroni Mike for livestreams have become something that I enjoy doing every so often. These are things that, barring some sort of catastrophic event, will never supplant or impinge upon the production of Down the Rabbit Hole; it is still very much my passion, and that passion has only grown with time.

However, I am afraid that these instances of more candid speech are betraying the expectations of conduct and behavior that my viewers have come to expect from me.

And so, I'm asking all of you: how does this extraneous content make you feel? I'm certainly not asking any of you to make the decision for me, but rather, I'm curious as to what your gut reaction might be as an individual viewer.

It’s actually way more interesting seeing you do all this different stuff, at least for me. Seeing you collab with channels like Internet Historian or DeadwingDork helps pass the time quite nicely as it can be quite a while before new DTRH videos release.
user avatar
User #7815848 - 30 Jan 20 23:11
I don't think I've ever quite minded those things with you involved because I just see it as different type of content to a DtRH video. Like, I think of it as an action movie star doing something say, a romcom once, its different content from the same person but on a different venue and frankly, I don't feel lits its gonna intrude on DtRH, with all of your previous videos concerned.

Honestly, I enjoy seeing the more candid side of you, as you put it. While I feel that the more neutral tone works well with DTRH, the more casual approach fits the side projects very well.

As I and my friends and fellow 'Knudseners' will tell you, we're totally here for whatever you wanna do.

You're not just a witty narrator, you're Fredrik Knudsen. And you're the best, my guy.

I also want to take the chance to say that your voicing of Sonic in IH's adaptation of Sonic High School was great, and you sounded like you had so much fun doing it. It's good to see you be a little silly from time to time, so keep up the good work. Looking fwd to the next Down the Rabbit hole! X

I’m perfectly fine with it. It’s nice to hear you loosened up a little and more candid. I can separate the two formats easily enough. I actually really am looking forward to hopefully seeing more Warrens content!
user avatar
User #13412368 - 30 Jan 20 23:11
I appreciate the consideration, but I feel like it's spun off enough that I could ignore it if I didn't enjoy it - that being said the care and respect you always seem to have for your subjects makes me have full faith that you can manage a more candid and open persona in some contexts a s a more professional one in your DtR content.

User #718269 - 30 Jan 20 23:12
The stream with Deadwing was the tipping point between being a patron and not for me. While it was indeed more candid, there is still a level of professionalism and ethics within the candidness that made me realIze that you were someone I wanted to support.

User #2361299 - 30 Jan 20 23:10
Fred, we love all of the additional content! It’s a good way to show some variety and in no way betrays your conduct on DTRH. Keep up the good work. 😊

Based on the experience you had making and researching this video, what would be your biggest piece of advice for new businesses looking to attract customers?

User #24741085 - 7 Jan 20 14:58
I was very concerned to hear that a cat died of medical neglect at Purr Cat Cafe. Have any charges ever been made against Diane in response?
user avatar
User #4049133 - 7 Jan 20 14:27
Did you attempt to directly contact any of the individuals involved for further information/clarification? Or was it deemed unnecessary since most all of this occurred over very easily accessible social media pages?
user avatar
User #2610320 - 7 Jan 20 14:01
Purr Cat Cafe seems like such a very local thing to the Boston area, how did you first hear about it and decide it was DTRH-Worthy?
user avatar
User #15271000 - 7 Jan 20 14:08
Judging from her writing style in her Facebook tirades, do you think her book will be of critical acclaim or will it be another Empress Theresa and be read with scathing criticism on your next live reading?
user avatar
User #27772891 - 7 Jan 20 15:30
I initially saw Diane as just greedy and manipulative. However, the references to her possible alcoholism have actually made me reconsider my position a little. Which side do you find yourself in? Do you think Diane has an inherently exploitative and careless personality, or was she genuinely passionate about the cafe, but disturbed and therefore easily provoked from criticism?
user avatar
User #619633 - 7 Jan 20 14:39
I feel so bad for not having a question for the Hurdy Gurdy, temple os and Jordie Jordan episodes, and I really have no good questions for this episode except What the hell was Diane thinking?

Be honest, how long did you work on perfecting the “Meow Meow PURR!” line?

User #5903227 - 7 Jan 20 14:02
Do you know if there are other businesses she's ever tried to get going or is that the only one?
user avatar
User #794668 - 7 Jan 20 18:45
Who exactly was “Turtleboy”? I went on to the group’s Facebook page after watching the video, and saw some pretty disturbing messages from Diane to someone named Turtleboy. Your video had some screenshots of them at the end, as well. I can’t check the Facebook group now it seems. Google turns up nothing, and the Purr Cat Cafe website has a link to the Facebook group that is broken.
user avatar
User #3797662 - 7 Jan 20 16:17
Do you ever hear from people who are featured in your videos - either in a positive or negative way -- or find out if they've watched them? you do such a good job remaining unbiased in your presentations, I'm curious to know if the subjects (many of whom seem a bit volatile) ever try to engage with you, and how you might handle that!
user avatar
User #323928 - 7 Jan 20 16:14
As amusing as the video it, it touches on some darker topics like the owner's apparent alcoholism, suicidal tendencies and mental health issues. Did you purposefully leave more of these details out to keep a more comedic tone, or was there simply not enough of that darker material to go on? I'm not accusing you of lying or anything, but I feel like Diana has a much more serious story to tell.
user avatar
User #6055004 - 7 Jan 20 14:39
Since your video aired, the Purr Cat Cafe Facebook has closed. The owner went on a rampage against someone named turtleboy and then shut it down. Typically, the subjects of your video are either still kicking years after the fact (such as DSP), or were defunct long before your documentation of them. Does knowing a recent subject imploded shortly after your videos change your feeling about your work? Would you have done the video differently or sat on it a little longer?
user avatar
User #17870486 - 7 Jan 20 18:01
I realized after watching this video that I live an 8 minute walk from this place, when I moved in to this neighborhood I think it already shut down. I took this story to be a parable of a person who does not have the ability to execute her ambition, but thinks she does. I have a fear of having a revelation like this, that something I sought out to do ended up causing damage that I was not aware of until a later, so much later that you can't atone for it. Do these stories ever bring out in you a fear, or a new perspective on your life?
user avatar
User #15383165 - 7 Jan 20 14:18
How’d you manage to read the “Meow. Meow. PURR” lines without immediately cracking up?
user avatar
User #19319328 - 7 Jan 20 14:40
Regardless of the owners incompetence in this instance what do you think of the broad concept of “cat cafes” as an enterprise. There was one in my city that was very popular for a time before it shut down due to increasing business rates. Keep up the great work.
user avatar
User #24687595 - 7 Jan 20 15:06
Does she continue to post on Facebook? What's her life?
user avatar
User #106302 - 7 Jan 20 17:30
Is she still trying to open the cafe or has she expressed and future plans for any other business endeavors?
user avatar
User #3019550 - 7 Jan 20 14:03
I'm mostly concerned about the cats that were at the cafe. Is there any clue of what may have happened to them after its closure?
user avatar
User #2918037 - 7 Jan 20 16:19
What do you think of the criticism levied at animal cafes in general? Cat Cafes are the most common, and usually the most ethical, but in Japan I've seen everything from snakes to owls and penguins being kept as entertainment in captivities that are severely under par for those animals. Do you think the conversation around that effected PURR at all? Or were the problems with PURR exclusive to their business practices?
Progress Update: 1/6/20 2020-01-06T18:44:03+00:00

Happy new year, everyone! I just got back from my holiday break, and I can't even begin to describe how much better I feel. 2019 was difficult in many different ways for me, but I'm reinvigorated and excited to get working in a way that I haven't felt in a long time.

This raises the question: what's coming next?

#1 on the list is catching up on Patreon audiobooks. I've been behind for a while, and I'm excited to be back and up-to-date on them.

#2 are the Patreon Q&As. Later today, I'll be posting the question collection for the Purr Cat Cafe video, and after the audiobooks, I'll be answering the questions in the Wings of Redemption Q&A in an Other Channel video.

#3 will then be the next video. I've got a weird bit of recent history lined up that I think most people don't know about, and I'm very curious to see what everyone thinks about it.

I'll also intermittently be working on a... rather strange project that I have lined up, which you all will hopefully get to see in a few months' time. The Warrens will also see its second episode recorded in the near future, which will be on Mobility Mary. Mike's been chomping at the bit to do this one, and I can't blame him for it.

Thank you all for helping me make it through 2019. While I was in a bad place mentally, I feel like I produced some of the best content I've ever made in this time period in spite of that, and I have all of you to thank; the fact that I have a more stable revenue stream means that I can take my time with these videos and make them the best that they can be, and I can use my capabilities to their fullest. I love my job, so thank you all for helping make it possible.

Let's make some weird shit this year.

Recently I had some time to kill so i rewatched a couple DTRH vids. Calling them "YouTube videos" just doesn't fit, they really are genuine documentaries, I can't think of any other creator who does it better. Every time you release a video I instantly start waiting for the next one. I hope u keep it up you're obviously extremely talented!!

Hi everyone! Just a little progress update to let you all know I'm still alive. This last video was surprisingly exhausting so I decided to take a little bit of time off. Sort of. I'm catching up on Patreon content. I'll be all caught up this week which is exciting and then I'll be back to work on the next episode. I plan on it being a shorter one this time around, somewhere between 30 minutes to an hour. Thank you all for bearing with me!

And if you're new from the Wings video: welcome! Thanks a ton for supporting me; the stability that my patrons provide is fantastic and lets me take my time on Down the Rabbit Hole to make it what it is today.

Important Audiobook Annoucement 2019-08-24T22:30:17+00:00

I have officially dropped the price of the Audiobook tier from $10 to $5! This change is retroactive, so anyone who pledges this amount will get the 11 audiobooks previously published under that tier.

If you were at the $10 audiobook tier, it is now technically deleted; Patreon recently made some backend decisions and decided you have to declare what tier you want, so those already pledged at that tier will have to re-select the Audiophillic tier to get access to the audiobooks again.

Thoughts on a $5 Tier? 2019-08-20T02:17:26+00:00

Hello everyone! This is a public call to ask all of you what YOU would like to see in a $5 tier. It's something I've been putting off and I'd like to have it ready before the new video's out to provide people with something a little less extreme than the bump from $2 to $10.

Leave your ideas for a $5 tier in the comments!

Outtakes could be fun, but I assume they're usually scrapped simply because they're lower quality. As long as you wouldn't feel forced into putting out content you don't really like, something like a little blooper-reel could be fun.

This was my initial thought. I was thinking about streaming it and having a camera on me as I make tea in my itty bitty 1/2 cup-sized teapot. Call it "Teatime with Fredrik" or something.

Is it too much to ask/consider maybe "Fred Reads A Tweet?" The donor provides a short quote and you read it for them. This would bridge between a full on audiobook for the $10 donors and the $2 curious donors.

This comes down to if you think you have something to give that is worth someone paying $5 per month to support you. I was thinking that for that tier, you could so something like what Stephen M brought up, but more akin to Nick Nocturne's darkroom sessions. Another alternative is that they get to listen to the audio-book recordings each month, but they don't get to vote in the monthly poll. Regardless, hopefully you will be able to find a good option for a potential $5/month tier!

Bartimaeus' Song Sheet Music 2019-06-27T17:49:39+00:00close

As you might know, the composer for Down the Rabbit Hole, Ryan Probert, will write sheet music for my more musically-inclined patrons in case you want to try your hand at playing them yourself! This is the sheet music for the section in the Hurdy Gurdy episode speaking about the movement of the instrument to the beggar class, a gorgeous, slow piano piece. If you record yourself playing, PLEASE let me know! Enjoy!

Progress Update: 6/16/19 2019-06-16T13:39:21+00:00

Hello everyone! I am at long last mostly recovered and feeling human again. I mentioned this in the Patreon Discord as well, but I just returned from a trip to Austria to spend time with a friend where, ironically, I caught a cold exacerbated by my still-raw throat. It has been a bit of a brutal month.

However, work on the next video forges onward. Unfortunately, just before I left for Austria, my computer broke down (likely an issue with the power supply), and I'm taking the opportunity to just upgrade my slightly outdated desktop; working on the old one was becoming quite the pain.

While I wait for my new computer parts to arrive, I'm continuing research and beginning work on the script. One of the planned centerpieces of the new video is a section heavy in graphic design to help deconstruct a particularly important and interesting part of the narrative, and I think it will provide a unique dimension to the subject even to those already familiar with it. I'll admit a bit of schadenfreude on my part; as I mentioned, this next video is on the fall of a YouTuber, and this event is notable for the subject's incredible series of failures.

Thank you, everyone, for sticking with me. Taking time to recover from such severe and debilitating illness has been an indescribable boon, and I have you all to thank for being able to do such. My voice is intact and my energy is returning; I'm ready to crank this next video out. Let's do this.

Progress Update: 5/28/19 2019-05-29T01:05:41+00:00

Hey everyone, I know this progress update is coming a bit early, but some things have occurred that I think merit an update. I've been hit by a string of bad luck recently: I contracted a particularly aggressive and debilitating strain of strep throat that had me in a bad way, and the first round of antibiotics were unsuccessful in treating it. I since have been put on new antibiotics and these seem to be working, but for the past week I've been trying to recover and my throat is still not healthy enough to record this month's audiobook, so it's going to have to come later.

Which brings me to my second piece of bad luck. Even if my throat were well enough to record, my desktop has broken down. Since I've been meaning to upgrade it for some time anyways, I'm going to get new parts that will make editing faster and easier. I've been working on a semi-budget computer for a while, and it only makes sense to acquire a more powerful rig at this point. In the meantime, I'll be able to perform research on my laptop, even if it's a bit more laborious.

I'm sorry that the productions of the last two videos have been so troubled, it's been a strange few months. Thank you all for supporting me through it; the consistency of Patreon has given me the opportunity to address issues that otherwise would make it much more difficult to continue in the long-term. To better health and a new video.

Hi everyone! I'm sorry I've been so absent, I meant to get you guys updated earlier this week but I came down with strep throat. The new video is well underway, and research is going well. It's definitely been a bit brutal emotionally, but the research is not nearly so difficult to perform as the videos such as TempleOS because it's been catalogued so much better. I wouldn't be surprised if this was another longer one, between 40 minutes and an hour, but we'll see when it's time for scripting. I plan on using a lot of original footage for this one, like the TempleOS video, because the subject is very self-explanatory in a lot of instances and I prefer to let it speak for itself whenever I can.

Thank you again everyone for your support, and I'm looking forward to returning to the internet with this video in a way that I haven't for over a year now. It definitely will be a return to form. See you all soon!

user avatar
fredrikknudsen - 27 Apr 19 21:03
I hope you enjoy it! The history of this instrument is bonkers and gets pretty dark. As for speed, there isn't really a limit as long as your form is good; the keys need to be pressed with just the right firmness to get the proper tone, since if you press too hard, you can send the note sharp and if you press too softly, the string will just rattle against the tangent.

User #10713185 - 28 Apr 19 19:37
Your passion for the instrument comes through very clearly. I didn't expect to have any interest in the topic but your knowledge and passion had me completely intrigued. Can't wait for the full vid.
Progress Update: 3/29/19 2019-03-30T01:40:44+00:00

Sorry this one's text again, this should be the last text one before going back to the audio updates.

My instrument is now finished! I'm going to be making the trek in the next few days to retrieve it and record the final segment for the new video. After that, it should be just a few more days of editing before the new episode is finished. However, I do also still need to order lighting equipment, so it may be a couple of weeks before the video is ready if my current lighting situation isn't able to capture the detail I need. If I do have to wait, I'll begin research on the episode after this one.

Thank you so much everyone for being patient as I undergo some significant personal upheavals.

Progress Update: 3/25/19 2019-03-26T01:01:04+00:00

Hey everyone, sorry I've been so bad at keeping up on progress updates. This last week wasn't terribly productive, but this hasn't delayed the release of the video at all, as I'm still yet to receive the instrument I'm going to use as a demonstration. Ryan is finishing up the music for the episode, with just one last track to go. Arcaxon also is well underway with the graphics, and they're looking quite good so far.

Without going into too much detail, my mental health has been less than good due to personal issues, and it's made it difficult to focus on work. (This has nothing to do with burnout of DtRH) Nevertheless, I'll do my best to push through and get this out to you as soon as I can.

TempleOS Closing Credits: Sheet Music 2019-01-16T00:37:49+00:00

As you might know, composer Ryan Probert has been lending his immense talent to the Down the Rabbit Hole series, providing original tracks to accompany the videos, and the solo piano piece at the end was especially moving to many. He has requested that I make the sheet music available to my patrons, and I'm more than happy to oblige. Attached to this post is a PDF of the sheet music to this gorgeous piece. If you decide to record yourself playing, please let me know so I can listen and share it! I'm absolutely certain that Ryan would love it, too.

I had a moment like that. I was watching a video of him to see what the fuss was about while he was still alive, I looked behind him and I said to myself, "Wait a minute, I know that street..." I looked at other videos and sure enough, there was Portland architecture. That sort of freaked me out knowing how close he was.

Mini-Progress Update: 12/10/18 2018-12-11T04:43:21+00:00

The script for the next Down the Rabbit Hole is finished. For reference, the Furries video was about 6,700 words long, and this script is just barely shy of 10,000 words long. However, this doesn't include all of the time that will be dedicated to archival footage, which will likely push the video to at LEAST 1:10:00, if not 1:20:00. Thank you all for being so patient with me. I'm taking a break tomorrow, maybe just going to give it a final edit, so I have plenty of energy to record the narration.

This isn't really a question I can ask on a Q & A since it's not a question about a subject, but about the show. Where do you get your music?
user avatar

The music used to be done by Kevin MacLeod, but now it's done entirely by a composer named Ryan Probert, so it's all original as of the GameLife episode.

Progress Update: 11/8/18 2018-11-09T03:27:06+00:00

Hello, everyone! I'm not sure how much time I'm going to have tomorrow, since I'm SCUBA diving, so I'm doing the progress update a day early.

Right now, I'm with family on a trip, but I brought my laptop along so I could continue to do work and research while I'm gone. I was expecting this last phase of research to take a bit longer, but things are going quite quickly, and I plan on starting the script before I return home (before the next progress update). I'm tentatively scheduling this video for early December, though I could see it coming out significantly earlier than that. Surprise surprise, I suspect it's going to be another long one, around 30-40 minutes long. There will be plenty of source footage being used to help illustrate the events, as well; the vast majority of research time spent on this has been spent skimming over the utterly massive amount of video available, but I've found some fantastic gems I can't wait to share with you all.

I apologize for not cutting together the Q&A video for the GameLife episode earlier; my time has been largely spoken for recently, and I wanted to spend as much time as I could before this trip researching for the next Down the Rabbit Hole. I'll cut it together as soon as I get home.

See you all next week!

Sheet Music for Down the Rabbit Hole: Owlin' Wolf 2018-11-07T05:02:53+00:00close

Hello everyone! You might have noticed that there was an extra name in the credits of the last Down the Rabbit Hole. Ryan Probert has begun composing original pieces specifically for the show, and he's given me permission to share the sheet music for some of the tracks with all of you. This one is Owlin' Wolf, which made an appearance in the Furries episode.

Hey guys! As I was gone for much of the last week, there's not a ton to report. Got a little bit of research done for the next episode. I'm going to be flying out again next week (schedules lined up super weird for me) but I'll be working while I'm gone, so I should be able to provide another progress report next week, though it'll be in text by necessity. I'll see you all soon!

The Distended Eye, my old book 2018-10-18T01:10:07+00:00close

Largely for archival purposes, I'm making my book The Distended Eye available to the public. While I'm not terribly proud of it anymore, it goes against my archival instinct to bar it entirely from the scrutiny of readers, and so I'm offering it for free as a PDF. It's definitely a sophomoric effort in my eyes, but people have told me they enjoy it.

user avatar
User #542372 - 18 Oct 18 01:33
Speaking as an author myself, as early of an effort as it might be (dunno, haven't read it yet, though I will), it should be something to be proud of. Most people say they'll write a book, but they don't finish. That carry-through is the first step to actually being a creator of any kind, so be proud of it, warts and all.
user avatar
User #6684910 - 18 Oct 18 09:36
I consider myself to be a "creative type", at least whenever I get the urge to create something. I play a couple of instruments, I build electronic stuff, got a few chapters of a novella that I'm kinda sorta satisfied with. The only problem is that I never finish about 90% of the "projects" that I start. I've dragged boxes of electronics/computer gear, music equipment, automotive stuff, piles of reference material/books/magazines related to all these various projects, around with me through six house moves over the last decade, at great expense in time and labour. Maybe I'll get that book finished first though. One of these days. And that's why I'm a technician, not a creator. Be proud of everything that you create... if nothing else, sharing your early work offers the opportunity to receive new and constructive criticism that makes you a better artist/creator. Some of it will be useful and some less so, but it's all fuel to the fire right?

Would it be possible to make a re-edited version without Larry Bundy? I still enjoyed the video, but would like to hear it without as much of Larry Bundy’s personality.

User #11912099 - 7 Oct 18 07:27
Caught you misspelling my name in the credits, but other than that, great work as ever! Maybe I'm a bit prejudiced, since I'm a fan of Bundy, but I didn't mind his contribution. For the most part, he seemed to be in charge of the more quirky and fun parts, in which his personality gave a more uplifting sort of retelling as opposed to your more grounded reading for the more mundane/tragic bits. Personally liked the juxtaposition there, but I could see it being off-putting to those who prefer the pacing and tone of your solo reads.

Q&As on earlier videos would be great!
Audiobooks are Coming! (And I Want YOUR Input) 2018-09-05T02:13:38+00:00

As you all have probably noticed, my reward tiers are remarkably sparse. The chief reason for this is because I haven't wanted to take time away from working on videos to produce things outside of my core content.

However, I think that the time has finally come for a change (and yes, I'm aware that change out of me comes at a glacial pace). It's exactly as the title says: I want to start producing audiobooks again. I used to do so waaaaaaaay back in the day, but I was doing them far more frequently than I could sustain, and they were exhausting to do. Those old ones, as of this evening, will be available for ALL patrons, though I believe that my performance then is not even close to what I can deliver now.

So what's changed? As some of you might recall, I used to have bloopers as a $2 reward tier, but phased those out when I realized I wasn't making quite so many mistakes. I was recording lines at twice the rate that I once had, and I was making fewer major mistakes. And so, I think I've grown efficient enough now that I could record and cut together audiobooks at a reasonable rate.

The secondary reason for this is that I believe my weakest aspect is my narration, and recording audiobooks would be a good way for me to practice.

Audiobooks will be released monthly, and will likely be 20-30 minutes long apiece. While my process has gotten faster, I still don't want to take TOO much time away from producing videos to record these. After all, you're supporting me to make my core content, right?

I'm thinking of setting these as a $10 reward tier. The time and effort required to make these is still considerable, and will probably eat up a full work day for each of them (I'm a one-man show, after all), and so that tier seems reasonable. I want this to be a way to reward my higher-tier patrons for their continued support.

Each month, I will put out a small poll with a number of public domain works to choose from which I think would make good audiobooks, I'm thinking four each time. $10 patrons will be able to vote for as many titles as they like. The one on top will be recorded later that month, while second and third place will be recycled for voting the next month. The one with the least votes will be removed from polling entirely, at least for some time, and replaced with another potential work. Suggestions for poll options can be put in the comments of any audiobook-related post.

Thoughts and opinions on this are absolutely welcome. If the majority of people are happy with this, then I'll put up the poll for the first audiobook very soon. I already have a few works in mind, but I'd love to hear your thoughts.

-Fredrik

Just got back from a week-long vacation, so not a ton of progress to talk about.

Working on a story delivered entirely through Twitter, will likely have a contract signed tomorrow with the company. More details next week.

Next DtRH will be my second crossover ever.

He's done much of the research already, so the production time for this video should be shorter.

Mini progress update now, full progress update tomorrow! 2018-08-29T03:16:59+00:00

Hey everyone! I know I'm a day late, but I was mega tired after getting home from my trip to Canada. (A 7 hour drive on the highway with one of the windows stuck open will take a lot out of you) I just wanted to assure you all that I hadn't forgotten about the progress update. Now that I'm more settled in my apartment, I want to start doing them as video updates again, which I'll film tomorrow. While I didn't get any work on the next DtRH done, I did get some work done on something else during my vacation, and I'm excited to share it with you. This is gonna be super cool. I'll also be discussing the return of audiobooks!

See you all tomorrow!

It's pretty intense they will make porn out of anything.

True. But Rule 34/35 also applies to the entire internet, not just the furry fandom.

The additional graphics during the MUD sidenote and other areas were really helpful and added a lot of professionalism.

Subscribed Groups: alt.music.jethro-tull alt.fan.furry Hahaha... as an old Jethro Tull fan (but not a furry), I found that screenshot amusingly fascinating and appropriate. Great work on the video Fred. And excellent work by Arcaxon on the graphics!

Such a good video! I had no idea what the furry community was about, besides the taboo furry sex parties they used to talk about on TV. Thanks again for the great content, it was worth the wait. ??
