Entry #78

A few months into 2018...

Greetings, everyone.

It has been a while since I've visibly done anything, but contrary to what many would expect, I'm still kicking. Life itself keeps beating me up in many terms, including time, but nontheless, work had been continued throughout most of the time.

First and foremost, the Dokuroshima Reboot is still worked on; now that both script and static storyboarding are done a long time ago, I'm well over halfway past the animatic stage of production. Of course I don't have the intention to spoil everything, but what I can say, the reboot pilot episode itself won't have the trio from the original Dokuroshima due to it being set "Long time ago". The three protagonists, like pretty much anything, will be renamed in order to slightly deviate from the 'weeb' style visible all over the original series. More will be said eventually, but so far, this is as much as I would like to mention about the project.

As for other projects, I'm thinking of doing another meme-based Madness animation alongside, so I guess you may expect that to come out eventually.

Also, Vid.me has unfortunately been shut down, but there now is yet another YouTube alternative called "Viuly.io". Supposedly, this is another attempt to counter the censorship issues using the Etherium blockchain technology, and it even has its own cryptocurrency circulated within the network; upon registration, you're already given 10 VIU. I don't know much about it myself, but I would rather have a backup video channel of sorts based outside YouTube.

Here's my new channel (under construction): https://viuly.io/channel/65479

Here's my referral link; my account was made through a similar one: https://viuly.io/r/K7432505a8a0987d

And here's a random draft of a guy jumping away, because why not :P

where is big smoke vs the rest of the hood?

With a name like Viuly.io (most notabley no .com) I'm wondering if it'll ever become a true contender to YT... but maybe alternative .ext's really are the future! I do hope. YT could use some competition. Plus decentralization and such good things, it sounds interesting...

Bout to sign up just so I have signed up, just in case... curious though. what do you get for a referral?

AoiShinigami responds:

Not entirely sure myself considering there doesn't seem to be anything given to me for the referral, so far. Either it's because you have to add a channel (which is kinda separate thing from just registering an account), or it's just that the whole thing is a public alpha in development, or I didn't read deep enough into material about the stuff.

I did, however, know initially that you'd get a bit of the VIU thing for not skipping the preroll ads, and as expected, a tiny amount was gained from viewing an ad. So, that's about as much as I know so far.

Aha, alright, promising prospects at least. It's certainly still better than what you get from YT (nothing, as far as I know?). Hope it garners a good base of users...

AoiShinigami responds:

I hope so too, because the way the alpha is working already looks rather promising
