There is a reason we call it "Taco Hell" -_- I was expecting Wilfred to call it that too to be honest for some reason.

P.S. I highly enjoyed the interplay between the "two" of you, but I support your decision. I look forward to seeing new material from you besides just the Week in Review. ^_^

Okay two thoughts.

First thought is I'm really digging your animated Wilfred J. Pemberley, although I will miss the plushie talking if you make a permanent switch. So it's up to you 'cause I like the character very much. There are pros and cons to going either way. Using the plushie is easy, simple, and with the right puppetry techniques you can convey a lot but you miss out personalizing the character in a way that is truly unique that stands out from the other plushies like it. I don't know, maybe you could depending on how willing you are to modify the plushie and your sewing skills - not to mention is the plushie a collectible, etc. Animation is a ton of work and time consuming but you can personalize the character a great deal in ways you can't with a plushie. Anyway that's my chain of thought regarding the Wilfred.

My second thought is that this week I noticed that the feel of the written blog and the video blog felt closely the same. In some places they were word for word the same. Not exactly a bad thing, but not exactly a good thing either. Not sure what your aim is here. If "Gray" is one persona that gives critical, intellectual reviews of people's work then I when I sit down to read the written review I expect a different tone then when I sit down to watch "Wilfred" who is grumpy, snarky, and delivers his own brand of humor as he presents people's work. I guess my question is, are you trying to make "Gray" and "Wilfred" two different personas that run these reviews or have I made the mistake in my own head by designating "Gray" and "Wilfred" as two separate personas? I ask because to me Wilfred clearly comes across as his own person with his own opinions without apology while Gray will take the time to explain his reasoning. The other reason I bring this up is because I enjoy both versions of the review for different reasons. Since having been introduced to Wilfred I now read the review to see what Gray has to say and to learn from it, and then I watch Wilfred to enjoy the show.

The plushie is not a personal invention of mine. If you're so inclined, he's available for purchase here. xD

As for the persona, I really wish that I had come up with the WJPemberley character before I started making Youtube videos. If I had, my channel probably would be named after him, and that would be the only persona you ever saw. As a content creator, I'm constantly trying to come up with a brand that people like, and it appears (at least based on the viewing figures) that Wilfred is a far more effective entertainer than I am.

Having said that, the problem with separating the content in the video and the blog is that it requires a lot of extra effort on my part. A week ago, I could handle it. But now that I'm committing to the new animation style, I have to direct most of my attention to that, rather than writing the two separate reviews. In the future, probably after this year's episode of Year in Review, I'll probably drop the blog altogether and commit fully to the video version. I've always wanted to drop one of them, and commit all of my time and effort to one, but I haven't really figured out which one to stick with. Having Wilfred around makes me more comfortable with making WiR video-exclusive, whereas before I was more comfortable with the written format. Time will tell.

I hope I didn't come across cranky with any of what I said because it wasn't my intent. The work load is an incredibly valid point. Two blogs with two different content tones IS a lot of work - and you are trying to get them out on a weekly basis. I was just wondering if it was experimental or intentional and I don't think I made myself clear on that part of my question. Sorry about that. I hope you get it figured out because on some level blogging should be enjoyable and at the moment I'm sensing some stress. I didn't want to add to that stress. :( Even though I hardly write anymore a part of me still enjoys discussing the process of writing and creating.

As for buying the plushie... it would not, and could not, be the same as Wilfred. ;)

Oh, everything is experimental at this juncture. At the end of the day, I've never wanted the video and the blog to be separate experiences. I would love for them to both be posted in the same project, but the PMC moderators won't let me. So, unfortunately, I have no choice in making them separate entities. If it were up to me, both the video and the blog would be told from the same point of view and incorporate the same feel and ethos.

I may not understand why they must be separate, but at least I understand now what's going on. Do what you need to do to keep your sanity. Like I said, there still needs to be a level of fun in blogging.

He wanted to post a video link for the blog, and the mods wouldn't allow that because it isn't written content. Correct me if I'm wrong :)

This is the first week I've ever watched the videos. Normally I don't because my hearing comes and goes and YouTube's closed captioning is sketchy at best. But last night my hearing was doing pretty good. No ringing! ^_^

I must say that Wilfred J. Pemberley just became one of my favorite mascots and got quite a reaction from my sons too.

"What's that you're watching Mama?"
"I'm watching a Ghast talk about cool projects."
"Why is he so grumpy about it?"
"I don't know, maybe he is secretly jealous?"
"Maybe."

Must have been a lot of fun making the video. I need to share the link with my sister. lol <3

What is this madness? Gray? Gray I told you about putting your eyes on before you make a video. And wait until you've finished until you suck the colour from a room to restore your power. Get your act together once more. And good video I suppose. Good show
