totally dire - just me maybe but found it (like most TeeVee style crap) to be completely unwatchable, so so spastic

If you meant random, I think you're receiving what we intended on displaying.

Not to worry, Christmas Special is over. Steady shows coming up.

Perhaps you'd prefer a more normal (http://www.opposite-word.com/s/spastic) show like the Bitcoin Show by Bruce Wagner. lol

Criticism noted.

There is a way you can do this on your computer, but I forgot the simple steps. It was one of those YouTube tricks, one I've used a couple other times in the past for other non-YT videos. Given a few minutes of research, I could possible find that info and be able to rip it from his site and have a copy on my computer.

I think a clickable link would be much simpler and is likely trivial for Matthew to add to the site.

Thank you for working hard on this, and for delivering a great show, Matthew. The ending was a bit edgy. Not edgy enough for me, and likely too edgy for an average bitcoin-curious person. Can't make everyone happy, at least not at the same time. Once again: thanks, and keep up!

P.S. quality of sound is more important than visual quality in shows of this type. Allocate resources accordingly, from microphones to your time in production.

I appreciate all the comments, especially the criticisms since I was running blind with this. Here's what I'm doing to fix the issues that I am aware of:

1) Shows in the future will be as relaxed as possible without losing the point, but will not be ad libbed like this special was.

2) Sound was a huge concern but budget, resources and time were against us. A generous sponsor has pledged to provide proper wireless recording equipment that should allow us to keep mobility without sacrificing quality.

3) I'm in love with rendering special effects now. Vicente has got me hooked and since the stick figure animation alone took 2 hours to render, it's pretty clear our hardwar was ill prepared. A generous sponsor is providing a rendering machine for us to help is follow standards and cut time.

4) Comedy is what I live for. Without it, I'd have no energy to do any of this crap. I'll be channeling towards seperate skits instead of main features though to ensure that my particular tastes don't interfere with accessibility.

5) We are producing a digital magazine to go along with our series of programs. This should help those interested in the meat only to get more out of what we are doing.

6) If anyone has any suggestions, concerns, or if you have an idea for a show you'd like us to do or you'd like to create and host with us, I'm all ears.

7) The Christmas Special was a rushed, poorly thought out and even worsely executed concept with a very short window of time to complete. Future shows are planned, written and contributed to by our entire team not just me so the production value should improve as we find our ass from our heads.

Cool I like bacon.

9) yesterday in the shower I came up with an idea and three verses to a Silk Road nerd gangra rap song. Would anyone be interested in seeing this produced into a music video?

I think the shampoo at the end would have definitely turned my mom off to the video.  Comedy is great though.  Separation sounds good to me.

Good job on aspect ratios, mostly... What did poor Stefan do to deserve being squished in his interview? Do you charge the guests if they wish to avoid the aspect squishing?

I will admit that at least you only squished one guest... Bruce squishes everyone, including himself.

Did Mr Armitt pay the "non squished interview" fee?

Best part:

Pretty nice for the first one... keep it up.

The interviews were just a mess and the real reason the special was late. We're learning though.
