Ask Me Anything (Answers Video!)

2014-03-17 00:23:16 by Back-From-Purgatory

Some of you may recall the newspost I put up a couple weeks ago where I told you guys to ask me anything... Well, I've finally finished editing the video for it (Save one hiccup that I'm not willing to rerender for 4 hours to fix, just a small visualizer issue), and it is now live and ready for your watching/listening enjoyment.

As I say in the video, if you have any more questions for me, feel free to ask, and I'll throw an answer your way.

:3 are you sexy hehehee

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

No, I'm a monstrosity and should be avoided like the plague.


2014-03-17 11:04:42

Yay having my questions answers. :D Hugs are great, thanks for answering my questions. :)

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

You're very welcome.


2014-03-17 15:27:06

And yet, still shrouded in secret...:P haha.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

You...struck me with a trollface.

Thank you for answering my questions, BFP, and for pronouncing my name right!
The music at that part of the video was enchanting, I should have discovered that sooner.

Anyway, it was really interesting to hear your responses and to hear a crisper voice-over quality this time around. :D


Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Glad you enjoyed it.

This is off-topic, but, where is the girl on your pic from?

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I'm not sure which picture you're referring to, so I'll just name off all the ones I believe you could be asking about.

NG Profile picture:
Hatsune Miku (Vocaloid)

NG icon:
Remilia Scarlet (Touhou)

Youtube profile picture:
Black Rock Shooter (Vocaloid song by the same name)

Left a review on your vídeo, by the way.
NIce work!

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I've never really thought of the comments section on youtube as a review thing, but thanks.

Glad you liked it.

Nice work, Purgy- you were really more confident while speaking in this vid!

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I don't really lack confidence in speaking really... I'm just... not a talker.

In reality, I sound more "confident" in this video cause I recorded it in the middle of the day and I didn't have to speak under my breath... Granted... I kinda do that all the time anyways, just not always to the same extent.

I never really speak at full volume, no matter the situation. Soft spoken I guess you could say.

Good stuff, Purgy/BFP! Your answers were really informal, and the video graphics and witty text were a nice touch. Video editing can be a lot of painstaking work, believe me, I know. Yet truth be told, I'm really happy to see what you've produced with its flaws and all.

Best of luck on mastering the use of your mic. If it doesn't work out for you, there may be others of better quality and less maintenance you can afford to acquire.


Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Yeah, I actually had to push back the release of the video a week cause editing took a hell of a lot longer than I thought it would... Sped up considerably when I figured out a few keyboard shortcuts for functions I was using every 3 seconds though... Still took a hell of a lot longer than I should have though.

Also... I'm not really the formal type.... sooo... yeah...

There's nothing wrong with being soft-spoken, Purgy. ^_^

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Good to know. Cause I'm soft spoken even when I try to be loud it seems.


2014-03-19 20:19:01

Thanks for answering my question! I chose Ernie Ball slinkies.

(Updated ) Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Oh... Strings... Derp.

I use Ernie Ball strings as well... Hybrid Slinkies.

I can't recall what I put on my 7 string guitar, cause I only change the strings on that thing once in a blue moon (Changing strings with a floyd rose is a fucking nightmare).


2014-03-28 23:14:44

Do you have any projects going on?

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I have a ton of projects going on, I just can't find the time to work on them all.


2014-03-30 06:56:24

I enjoyed the video, it was great as I could listen it many times to be sure I understood what you said, the fact you've putted a playlist in background helped me not to get bored of listening again and again x) And I mostly understood the whole AKA
Also, you'll have a gift for your birthday, I'll even try to make it usefull this time.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Yay presents.


2014-04-18 20:53:49

We want Miku! We want Miku!

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Miku is coming...

... in fact, she's in the next thing I'm working on.


... But it might be a little while longer til it's out... cause I just started overtime, and I have very, very little personal time for the next month.


2014-05-04 20:42:48

I would've particpated in this if I weren't banned at the time

Im still gonna ask a late something though :3

How've you been?

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I don't believe I've banned you from my newspost.. so I'm not sure what would've prevented you from asking a question.

Regardless, I've been tired... I'm on day 9 of my 12 day week of 12 hour night shifts.

3 more shifts and I finally get a couple days off.


2014-05-05 15:32:05

I meant banned on ng lol

How much sleep have you gotten?

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

What... like... IP Banned? Cause that's really the only way you wouldn't have been able to comment on my newspost.


2014-05-05 20:14:11

Yeah Im an idiot who decided to ban evade... Wade unbanned me though so its all good.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Tsk tsk.


2014-05-09 22:17:10

So Purgy, how busy are you?

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I'm actually on 4 days off now... My overtime hours are done, I'm just winding down now. Back to my usual schedule on Monday.

Meaning I'll have more time for things... Like... working on music... which I've been doing the last couple days. Before the end of the weekend I should have something to post.

...Not Miku yet... soz... This post will be an update to an already existing song. However, Miku is coming, the project is progressing. I promise.


2014-05-09 23:21:22

Have you at least gotten a chance to mess around with miku? Sounds like it would be fun

Also have you watched any anime lately?

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Yeah, I've messed around with her a fair bit. To be completely honest, she's a nightmare to work with compared to Gumi... But I'll get what I want out of her.

And yeah, while I was on overtime, all I really had time for after/before work was a single episode of anime while I was eating.

Notably, I watched World Conquest Zvezda Plot over the time I was working overtime. Cute anime, I quite enjoyed it.
