What do you think of the video blogs?

Post by MichaelM » Thu 28th Jun 2007

Colfer has posted 3 video blogs on his site so far. What do you think of them? ^_^

I'm liking them. He mentions different comments etc. that people have left on the site, so he must be reading them. Very impressed. :D

The only downside is that the sound is dodgy at best... XD

I love the fact that he goes to the whole extent of vblogging. :P [All I wished for was a blog; he went beyond that. :)] It just shows that his fans are very dear to him.

And yeah, his vblogs have really bad audio, though. :( He should get a new mic or perhaps get somebody to fix the audio before he posts his videos. XD And also, there is this weird electronic buzz in the background of his videos. :?

I don;t like them.

1) They're hard to load.

2) If you miss things, it's harder to go back

3) I can usually not hear ANYTHING. And what I do hear, I have trouble with because of his accent.

4) If something is unclear, chances are I'll never get it, no matter how many times I play it, which is timeconsuming anyway.

I miss plain text.

I enjoyed the V-blogs, allthough I had to turn the volume up insanely high.
I think it's cool he's doing a V-blog for us fans :D .

After watching that latest videoblog, I can say that the sound has improved dramatically. :D

It was crystal-clear! :D

Anyone else notice the difference? :P

I did! I noticed that the sound was better.

I like his video blogs. Before, I had to put on head phones and turn the volume up just to hear it. :lol:

Ha-ha, yeah, I noticed it too.

Ohmigosh-I-love-his-accent! I don't care if I don't understand what he's saying. It's just fun listening to him talk. :P
I wonder what Artemis sounds like with his accent. *ponder*

I love them, it really helps the fans to feel more connected to the author, not just the books. +I love his accent, it's so calming.
