I like to draw things and create fictional worlds that don't make a whole lot of sense. I draw webcomics. I created Fatal Expression and Crack Putty, and more projects are planned.

Vidlii

Vidme's down, and therefore, so is my last post's showcase video. This is the Death From Minecraft information page created by Vidme's software team after the suspension. It has a better description of what the cartoon was about and why I gave up on, and then posted, it. I am very happy with Vidme for keeping the stats and descriptions up, because it really proves that these things existed, and provides invaluable pieces of internet history.

So, Vidlii.
I was very sad when Vidme went down, and it was so much that it took me a while to consider that this similarly named successor could fill the gap. Eventually I decided to take a less blurry-eyed look at the new monolith of a website, and realized that, holy crap, it looks like the really really olden time days of YouTube.

This caught my attention really fast. Not only was it trying to look and be like the old YouTube was when I was too young to even understand YouTube, but it has star rating systems right now that show up alongside the thumbnails, and you can freaking change the colours and features of your channel. I took advantage of this at once, and made myself a black channel layout with dull lights in place of the default accents, with the banner image that I always wanted to get working on YouTube, but couldn't. It's called Wardhouse and Frack, and it's right here. It's based on a combination of two other majorly different channels I've had elsewhere, and has footage that is no longer viewable anywhere else.

I'm quite amazed at the lengths Vidlii's owners went to to make this site look and feel like our nostalgia's target. Not only do you have all these colourful NG-grade rectangles and bells and whistles, but the URLs for videos and channels are faithful to how YouTube's URLs used to be typed. They have the same syntax.

Unfortunately, there are still problems. I've read the community guidelines, which seem pretty hard to follow and nonspecific, leaving room for lots of paranoia that my videos might or might not be flagged, and a lot of video-makers - even on the front page - have set the bar for video quality pretty low. I'm hoping to help bring the five star MP4 rating back to greatness.

It's a new website, Morty, somebody's gotta bring a little culture.
