My friends, it's been a fun run. We've had our highs and we've had our lows, but even at our worst, it's been nothing but the best. And as cliché as it is, all good things really must come to an end.
Which is exactly what will be happening to SEXKITTENS in the next few weeks.
What, did you think I was talking about something else?
We've got two more episodes in the can and ready to post before our finale. And while we officially started taping the big final episode last night, it will probably take another two or three weekends before we'll be able to wrap shooting.
Did I mention that our final episode will be a full 20 some-odd minutes long? Yes, we're going full, half-hour format for the big finish and it will likely be too big for YouTube (although I might split up into parts). But I'm okay with it being too big for YouTube because--one--that was the plan all along and--two--YouTube is kinda being a little shit-tard lately, dontcha think?
Have you noticed how YouTube seems to allocate the lions share of their bandwidth to the big-time videos? If you have no idea what I'm talking about, try playing a video from a friend--anybody, really, who doesn't bank thousands of views in a day. Even for a short video (a minute and a half??) you pretty much have to walk away to let it load and then watch it later.
I'm sorry, but that sucks and it's pretty much a dick thing for YouTube to be doing. Even on low-quality, videos take too long to load. Is it just me? I don't think so. So, yeah, I'm a little disenfranchised when it comes to YouTube right now, so I'm not all that disappointed to phase it out as a primary distribution platform. The simple fact of the matter is that what I require of YouTube is streaming video--if they can't handle it, I've got about five other options that can, and can do it better than YouTube.
So that's where I'm at. We've got two new episodes of SEXKITTENS for this Wednesday and the following and then there'll be a short break until we can get the finale finished. In the meantime, we'll have Beanie Boy on Monday's and I'll be working up some previews for you guys shortly.
ALSO: once we finish production on SEXKITTENS, my group is ramping up for a new show called MISERY LOVES COMPANY. This show will have a 10 episode run, and all the scripts are written (and they are GOOOOOOD!). We're all pretty excited about this show, so hopefully we can get some previews to you soon.
Stay tuned and stay creative!
