It's been quite the hiatus for me. I had to dig deep for my PW. I came back online because of this new show I've been hearing about called NLBS.
It sparked my interest immediately. It hit me harder than the jumping cactus on my last hike..
I also listened to the ATS Live Radio show on Monday. Many good points were discussed about NLBS. I'd like to state a general comment first. I was
gone for awhile due to work & family. Life gets busy sometimes and we need to help each other out, and even if that means helping ourselves.
Personally, I am a very vocal and visual human. I enjoy reading and writing but I feel it takes longer to get my point across and/or understand
anything unless its an audio or video feed. Ok, back on topic, here are my notes having watched all 3 beta test episodes..
BETA 3 notes
1 - I see a glare in the bottom TV, it shows Joe's arm, back of the studio when the bottom screen shows a darker image throughout the entire video.
It's tough to see but once you see it, you don't NOT see it. Maybe a fix here is differ lightning techniques, idk?!
2 - I still see a light that shines but it might be the computer in the room as your flipping thru images to put on the TV screen.
3 - I like the BS Guy MEME. He seems like a good choice for when you call BS on a topic. (I call him the BS poster child)
4 - the new BS Meter - oh you so fancy! Good work! It's simple, clean, easy to understand and effective.
5 - longer episodes (10min) versus (5min)
I enjoy both formats, only comment here is it doesn't feel like 10min just went by. That's a good thing.
6 - I enjoyed the "thought/word" bubbles over Obama's face as if he was thinking that same thought. This is classic and super fun! A great way to
punch the point home.
7 - the "moo" sound. I initially liked it but in this beta it does seem very loud. I would tone it down a fraction and then you got a winning
"cow bell" that's ready to yelp when you drop a steamy turd on us, the viewers/audience. Maybe you make it louder the more BS a topic is... But
still tone it down just a hair..
8 - I originally enjoyed seeing the scroll on the bottom even though it didn't do much for me. During the episode, I pay attention to 3 things..
1. The Topic
2. The Images
3. The Host
Now that the "news scroll" is gone, it's not missed. One more note about it - it did seem to give you a more legit show, but then again, I'm
brainwashed as this is what MSM has done for years. They have trained us viewers to see this scroll as "breaking news" or more like "bullsh*t
When I think about it more, NLBS is anything but MSM so goodbye "news scroll" ..your death is already out of the obituaries
9 - Host Style/Presentation
Your style and presentation is getting much better Joe but slow down when speaking to some points as it may go over other's heads.. And remember to
pause, take a breath (under your breath) and go into the next topic.
EX: the bit about NSA iCreach seemed unnatural/manufactured at the beginning of the segment.
-As having been a host before this is just something you will become a pro at in no time. Relax and have fun with it dude.
10 - I really enjoy the "one take" raw production aspect of the show. This makes it much easier to create the video (less post production work) and
it gives you a real authentic feel as a viewer and I believe you. Like you said in your first beta, what you see is what you get. I dig that about
11 - The final video @ the end - the Ebola video
It looks as if one of the doctors who is dressed in yellow is flung out of the "beat up truck/ambulance" as it speeds away. It's around 8min and
38 seconds in the video. Am I alone in this thought here? Just want to make sure my eyes still work.
All in all, great job! I'm proud to say I'm a member of ATS and I look forward to more NLBS videos.
