    WOW! This episode is awesome! MDT, you have a great voice! Nice debut ;) And everyone, great job! Man, we've got an ambitious cast. I nearly forgot siebert! That line you did as the president was hilarious :D Nice work!

    To the rest of you lurkers (jk) and anyone who cares, PLEASE provide FEEDBACK!
    (I'm voicing Max and The Bug btw)

    This is now episode 4. Surely there's something you'd like to comment on @___@
    Comments are greatly appreciated!

    You need a voice for The Internet? I'll totally do her voice. I'm quite good at speaking professionally while talking about how Reality 2.0 is so good that nobody will ever want to leave. Ever.

    Also, I may be jumping the gun here, but if you should want to lampoon Papierwaite's effeminate character by casting a female for that part, let me know. Since you have males doing female voices (or at least Sybil) it might be fun to have a female do a male's voice. And which male is a better candidate than the one with the "hairless, ladylike torso?"

    You into Portal? I'm thinking of making The Internet kind of like Glados from that game, giving her classic lines such as "There will be cake".

    Been a while since I played that game, though...

    Okay, we need Voices for the following People:

    Bob Bell
    Curt 386
    Bluster Blaster
    The Internet

    If queen of the lobsters is taking the internet, then I'll provide voices for all of the computers, if no one else minds.

    Oh my god , will you people stop, LittleKuriboh did something great and continues to, but now every tom dick and skeletor try to do the same.

    You cant take something that was originally intentionally funny and try to make it ... funny.

    Says Who?

    *Raises hand*

    It's not impossible, per se, but it is incredibly difficult to do. And you guys don't quite have that caliber.

    Admittedly, there were a couple of times I chuckled, but the writing of the series just isn't that great. Gohaku's pretty much the only decent VA on this team. And ultimately, the jokes don't seem to flow. Not a lot of things seem to work.

    This is fun for you guys, though. I can tell that you're enjoying yourselves making this series - and I honestly can't complain about that.

    I'm just not really a fan. And I don't expect this to get much bigger. Sorry. :/

    Congratulations, Dage. You've just given me an idea of a joke that I'll use in Episode 5. :p

    Well why does any abridger do what they do and keep doing it? Fun.

    Simply put, this is fun. Up until Rebeca showed up in Yu-Gi-Oh abridged Little Kuriboh voiced every character, and after that He still voiced most of them up until Team Fourstar joined in as the big 5.

    If you watch the early episodes and a new one you will hear the change so much, he wasn't too good as a VA either. His accent even slipped a few times. He's made fun of that fact.

    I can tell you that stuff for this is like my second voice roll, and the first that ever got put anywhere, and I'm having fun with it. I don't care if other people like it, as long as the cast likes it it's okay. Anyone else is a bonus.

    I now want to try to do an overly serious version of Bo-BoBo Bo BoBo-Bo because I say that's the only way you can abridge that total festival of Random nonsense.

    Also, The Tom Dick and Skeletor remark was kinda funny, even if I don't like the message.

    Sorry, dude. D: Just trying to be honest.

    By all means, though, continue. Could get better. :)

    I could probably do Bob Bell as it's not too much of a stretch from my announcer. Is Curt 386 the one that sounds like Stephen Hawking's type-talk program? Maybe those lines should just be typed.

    As for comments about "Guys stop, you suck" and what not, I'm kind of indifferent about the whole thing. I'm not entirely attached to the series, but people seem to like it so I don't see any point in hating it or rallying for it to stop. It has moments and I don't mind contributing to it if I can. Then again, I don't think I've ever really been a fan of too many of the abridged series...es... in the first place, as most of them center around anime and I don't like a lot of anime to begin with.

    Still, in the world of "this guy did it first, stop copying him", that whole argument is pretty moot since the whole overdubbed-parody concept entails using someone else's work to make your own content in the first place. So without someone ripping off another person's work in the first place, you wouldn't have your "original," and I'm sure there were butthurt fanboys that wished they would've stopped tampering in things they have no business meddling with. If you don't like it, don't watch it - that's the easiest way you can remove something you don't like from your life, just don't pay attention to it. I don't recall ever being hounded or begged to watch any of these videos.

    Points taken. If someone's really enjoying what they're doing, and not really hurting anything while they're doing it, there's no reason that they should stop.

    Sorry about that past remark, guys. Maybe I oughtta just keep my mouth shut.

    Never played the game, but I can do GLaDOS. I can even sign a little "Still Alive" if need be. I don't have Autotune though, nor do I know how to use it, but I take it you usually do the voice editing and whatnot before each episode anyhow.

    Anyway do what you will .. a portal joke.. has that been done yet?

    Abriding 101 and my first pet peev is the audio levels, before you even attempt to make a contrived abridged series you MUST watch this video

    I actually think there was a reason for that - something like his original account was banned and he came back with another account. If you keep reading the thread, they talk about it.
    lattsam wrote: »
    Okay, it's me. I only did this because I didn't appreciate being banned the first time around.

    Either way, keep on wasting your time against something you have no interest in. Keep on trolling in the free world, Dage.

    As I'm pursuing VA professionally, I must say that I'm more than happy to add this project to my demo reel. I'm grateful to lattsam for letting me dub Max's voice and I'm having fun while doing it. I like the enthusiasm and energy of the crew and I think everyone's doing a nice job so far. Things have only gotten better since this abridged parody got started. Again, feedback helps with improvements... We'll weed out the non-constructive criticisms :p
    @ 1nky your honesty is still appreciated; everyone's a critic, as they say. I appreciate the feedback :)

    Paula Deen Riding Things? I haven't seen THAT meme before!

    But, yeah, maybe I'll change one of my lines to include a PD reference.

    Seibert, you're voice will likely be filtered anyway so you don't have to worry.
