Final MakutaFest

Posted by Swert , Aug 05 2017 · 200 views

I can't believe it's been this long. MakutaFest started in 2010 as a side project established by The TTV Channel (then The Three Virtues podcast) and the BS01 Podcast (then the... BS01 Podcast. We kinda suck at naming stuff xD).

Does anybody remember the first livestream? I don't. Literally cannot remember it happened, or that it was even a thing until 2011 rolled around. But I honestly cannot imagine what life would have been like during 2010-2016 without MakutaFest. I'm not going to say we influenced the return of BIONICLE (we didn't) or that we kept the fanbase alive (it'd live on without MF) but, personally for myself, BIONICLE would not be the same without MakutaFest. It's what keeps me excited for everything.

With that said, this will be our finale. Our last blast, as it were. Why? Times change, we keep moving forward, and in order to do that we need to say goodbye in a proper venue. For me, that is MakutaFest. For others, they may have already come to terms, and wish to reminisce with the good ol' times of G1, or reflect on what was and could have been in G2. For even more others, they may still be looking for closure, and I do believe MF is the closure we all might be seeking.

So please, feel free to join us on Aug. 19th. It won't cost a dime to attend, it just requires you to go check out TTV's YouTube channel and watch the livestream. Couldn't be simpler.

... Also we're giving away one of BS01's artbooks. Should I have started with that? More info here.

Coordinating a Bionicle area... First time for anything, right?

Posted by Swert , Dec 04 2016 · 165 views

So I've been placed in charge of coordinating a (rather small-ish?) table area for a Lego art and play event in Tacoma, WA. I've already begun planning how it will form together, but the fun part still comes in that I need to build about 7-10 new items that go towards it being awesome, including a new display case for my masks.

In other news, if you happen to hear from the TTV Brickfeed podcast I was on, I actually left my job of six years recently. This is one of the contributing factors in letting me get a chance to plan such an area in the first place (otherwise I'd be planning -everything else- at that event.) With that said, it's going to be an interesting ride to see what I can pull off design-wise.

I'll try to post photos when I get it set up, if anybody's interested :P

BS01 Podcast and more

Posted by Swert , Jul 23 2016 · 173 views

BS01 Podcast and more Whew, editing videos can be challenging some days. I posted not one but two BS01 Podcast Interview episodes on our YouTube channel. I have to say, I came up with a very useful format that's very easy to edit and publish, but eventually I'm going to have to find a way to make it even faster. Also the fact I have a 40 minute video to edit next will likely notKill me :P

I also finally got my ticket for BrickCon 2016 (YAAAY I'M GOING THIS YEAR!) and I'm going full-force this time. I don't know what I will do officially, but maybe I'll bring my new Nuva Cube? That'll be fun.

Also I have a new Nuva Cube. It lights up. It's also tiled on the surface. You're welcome, Kayru!

Otherwise, it's been chaotic the past few weeks (boss went on vacation in Europe, I had to handle the entire shop, practically by myself. Not much fun.) and now I'm looking forward to just catching up.

Sooo yeah, that's that. Cheers, all.

... So what should I build in celebration of my return from a 2 year exile? XD

I'm a Video Maker Now.

Posted by Swert , May 01 2016 · 390 views

It has been about 10 years since I last had semi-permeant access to a decent video editing software. I cannot believe how much I missed doing videos until I opened the BS01 YT channel.

So now that I have this power, I promise not to abuse it.

Much.

... I should make that BS01 trailer I've always wanted TTV Podcast to make for me : O

BS01 Podcast Takes A Journey... To One.

Posted by Swert , Apr 11 2016 · 293 views
BS01, Podcast, SPIRIT, Is and 1 more...
I have to say, I am super proud of SPIRIT for getting us hooked up with Volta and the voice actors. Seriously, SPI does not get enough credit from us, and I want to fix that now.

Basically, praise SPI. He earned it.

... Also go listen to our interviews. :)

Life update 8/3

Posted by Swert , Aug 03 2015 · 350 views

Well, that was a rush.
We just completed Skull Week on BS01's Facebook and Twitter accounts. ​We posted our first wave of reviews of the 2015 Summer Sets (Wave 2) by Dorek, with a slightly modified system. We gained some feedback over the last few months while reviewing the first wave of sets, and took them all to heart. Now I think we are truly ready for the future of BIONICLE. In addition to that, we also gave away a couple of summer sets. We hope to do so again in the future.

In the other news of life, I'm patiently waiting for my shipment of Exploding Kittens (if you don't know what that is, I assure you it's NOT a bad thing... much.) to arrive. I bought the $35 bundle, which if you're in the know, you know what that means :) I intend to play as many rounds as possible until we all get sick of it. But, you never know when that might happen.

Otherwise, it's too hot to do much else, so I'm going to go back to not doing much else.
