Fairy Godparent

This monday’s three fresh videos are:

Loading Ready Run: Fairy Godparent
Unskippable: The Witcher 2, Part 2
CheckPoint: Games for Windows, or Not 

For your additional viewing pleasure, the most recent Feed Dump and Loading Time are:

Feed Dump: The Leaning Henge of Rome
Loading Time: Put it on McDebit

I’d like to think that even if Labyrinth style Goblin King abductions were a possibility (they are not, due to budgetary reasons) Jareth would be pretty unimpressed with the main character of this video.

“Maybe just leaver her in the oubliette,” he would say.

As always, if you have questions about this week’s LRR video, leave them in the comments so I can make sure they get covered in this week’s Loading Time article!



  1. What’s the really distracting bright green reflection in Kathleen’s glasses on Checkpoint every week?

  2. It’s because, I believe, they shoot in front of a green screen. The process of removing the green screen, and replacing it with graphics, apparently has issues with the reflection in Kathleen’s glasses. It’s not really a reflection, but a refraction, from the green screen behind her. The distortion causes issues with their software, I’m guessing. If they had some mega expensive, professional use din Hollywood studios software, they could possibly fix that. Then again, I’m not sure any software could fix it, not without having things look very weird, at the least.

    Love the video. James was great, the role suited him well. Kathleen also makes a disturbingly good 17 year old…

  3. It is a reflection of their green screen wall, which is in the same room as the news desk set, though in checkpoint it is only used during some of the interviews/monologues they cut to.

  4. How much was the script consciously/subconsciously inspired by the ‘entitled’ culture reflected in the shows of ‘My Sweet Sixteen’ and other distorted views of reality from MTV?
