Japan Crate — June 2015 Unboxing and DIY Videos!

Hey everybody! Here’s the videos for my third Japan Crate! I’m getting kinda tired of making these, and I’m not really getting any kind of response to them, so this will be the last month I’m doing them. I actually just got the July Japan Crate, and it’s got a lot of fun stuff in it… including a super-cool Kid’s Beer! Yes, you read that right! Anyway, I highly recommend Japan Crate!

First up is the June unboxing video:

Year 5 Status Update

Doing an update post has become a yearly tradition, and while I don’t think anyone else really cares about them, it helps me process what I’ve done and what I’m wanting to do in the coming year. I usually post these on or very close to the good ol’ anniversary date, but since I was doing my blowout giveaway extravaganza I thought I’d let it slide a little. Anyway, here it is! Bet you’re glad you didn’t hold your breath waitin’ for it!

Looking back at last year, I did a lot of stepping away from the site. The fairly hectic and generally dependable weekly schedule I set up for myself was thrown in the trash, and I found myself just struggling to keep things afloat. This was for many reasons, with the main ones being my general stress level and the increasingly more demanding caregiving I do for my lovely partner. I can happily report that this move towards not caring as much about the site has definitely helped. I’m still a neurotic, obsessive bundle of anger, but I try my best to not worry about these little things like Silver Emulsion. It’s only a fun hobby, after all.

This update comes on the heels of FINALLY finishing my first long-running, ongoing series: my ever-expanding look at the work of writer/director Sam Fuller. I’m very excited to be done with it, because that means that everything else will be moving just a little bit quicker without any specific speed-up on my part. That basically boils down to posting about Jackie Chan and Arnold movies about twice as often as I have been over the past year or so. Yay! I’ve also recently figured a schedule out that may make it possible for me to increase my speed even further, but I haven’t tried it out yet so no guarantees. Just keep your eyes peeled and if you notice more than two reviews a week going up with any kind of regularity, you’ll know I have been successful. Of course, these hopeful words of “speeding things up” are all dependent on everything at home continuing as it has for a little while, so if things slip here and there that’s probably why.

As for where I think I’ll be next year in regards to my ongoing series: I’ll say that Arnold will be done (outside of a cameo or two, maybe), which will in turn further speed up the Jackie Chan reviews (which most likely won’t be done), as well as the neverending Full Moon and Shaw Brothers series. I will note that if I were able to get the Full Moon series back to once a week, I could likely be done by next year… but that’s not gonna happen.

I think that’s all I have to sort out this year, but I thought it might be fun to post a poll about these ongoing series that I’m spending so much time on, just to see if anyone actually cares. So… do you? 🙂 Select all answers that apply, and feel free to write in suggestions in the comments!

Japan Crate — April 2015 Unboxing Video!

I found out about Japan Crate a few weeks back, and I couldn’t resist getting one! The idea of crazy Japanese candies arriving in the mail is quite the exciting proposition! And I gotta say, it’s as fun as it sounds. Upon further research it seems that there’s quite a few of these services, but after perusing them all I decided that Japan Crate was the way to go. It runs $30 a month with shipping included, and they ship from CA via Priority Mail so you get your stuff really quickly. They also have smaller size boxes available for $12 & $25 if you’re so inclined.

In addition to the always exciting unboxing video, I also shot a video of me making my first DIY candy! Enjoy your vicarious sugar rush! I always appreciate any feedback or suggestions about the videos, too, so sound off in the comments if you’ve got a thought or two. Thanks!

It’s something I’ve thought about doing for a long time, and I think I’m ready for the spotlight! Hahahaha, in any case, I always appreciate any feedback or suggestions about the videos, so let me know in the comments. Thanks!
