  1. Honestly outraged that pigeons are allowed to carry out this form of vandalism without consequence. The local authorities should lock these creatures away.

  2. Non-meme-focused post:

    Really like the footage you did on and about (of Barry) – (perhaps incorporating more real 'b-roll' could help the show feel more dynamic, even if the footage itself isn't that relevant to the story. I do feel like it will be hard to break from your identity as game-focused, but you have a good sense of humor. Perhaps it may have been better to start the video with something like "We interrupt this meme for a special news report" or have the news break in the middle of a breaking news gag in a meme video like "When you turn on notifications for everything in EU4" or some such. It was also a little unclear to me how much of the 'news' was real and how much was made up – segments like LRR's Checkpoint are all satirical interpretations of real stories that happened recently, which helps us understand the nature of the humor. Better defining the nature of the stories you cover, be them totally satirical like the Onion, or real and developing but also ridiculous could help this segment develop itself. Fan participation like you mentioned could also go a long way in helping it stand out, but I'm not sure exactly what you're planning for that. Looking forward to seeing where it goes, and also looking forward to the next Disney-EU4 meme! (Personally I'm hoping for "Tributaries to Ming" set to "Bring Honor to Us All" from Mulan)

  3. Hey Guys!
    This is meant to be a satirical news series that Tom and I have been working on. It needs polishing and so, any suggestions, or stories you want us to look at, that you have would be greatly appreciated! We are a bit nervous about deviating from Gaming, more specifically EU4, but this is something we wanted to try out. Next episode we will be including comments from this video as an audience participation section.

    This series is about mocking local stories. It's not serious at all. These are also sort of personas that we are donning, intentionally using 'absolutely' and such words in repetition.

    It was done in a bit of a rush, so please let us know what you think!
