Fun With Microwaves 3

As we return you to our site’s regularly scheduled blog updates (sorry, this month has been a little hectic) we also return TO you a series that has been dormant for a very long time. It’s Fun With Microwaves!

LoadingReadyRun: Fun With Microwaves 3
Unskippable: Sacred 2: Fallen Angel
Checkpoint: God of Gore
Feed Dump: Van Dump
Loading Time: BEES!

I was off having some grand adventure in the land of Vancouver during filming this week, so I leave it to Graham to say a few words about the video shoot:

The intro to this video is almost totally accurate. While I had been thinking recently of doing another Fun with Microwaves video, finding the package that Russell sent us (which I received probably two years ago, while I was still living with Matt) was the impetuous to actually do it. We had a couple new ideas, and wanted to revisit some old favourites with the benefit of better video quality, so it seemed like a fun way to spend a sunny afternoon.

As it happened, there were actually some hilariously frustrating setbacks, all of which will be detailed in a future episode of Loading Time, but it worked out in the end. The original progenitor of the idea, Ray, had even been hanging on to that “smile” lightbulb for just such an emergency as this. As you can tell from my child-like squealing, it was one of my favourite reactions. Also, really seriously, don’t microwave eggs. Yeesh.

Cheers til next week!

  2. Question about Fun With Microwaves 3:
    Was this all shot at full speed? If not, it would have been nice if sections that were sped up or slowed down had a notation on-screen of what speed they were being played at.

    Anyway, that was AWESOME! Started off slow, but talk about ending with a BANG!

  3. Silly me; I forgot that you had done so with the previous editions of Fun With Microwaves, so its exclusion here might suggest that you simply did not speed anything up. So why did the soap go so much more quickly this time? Was it just the addition of Cyborg Parts?!

  4. Slightly unrelated question due to what just popped up in my subscription box: Do you guys prefer we watch your stuff on Blip or on YouTube? I have no clue how it works out with ad revenue and audience building, so a little pointer would be nice. I totally don’t care which I watch, so I’d gladly leave it up to your preferences.

  5. Nice to see this return! Also, I am a terrible judge of marathon times, but I hope that was a good time for you Matt, and at the very least congratulations on completing the marathon! That is something I don’t think my body could do – I’m not great at endurance.

  6. OH NOES! You’ve spelled impetus incorrectly.
