WEGAF Reviews: Top Ten Golden Age Western Heroes

Hi, everybodee!

Well, I guess it’s been a while. No, scratch that, I know it’s been a while, and for that, my apologies.

Why so long since a post? Well, you see, there was something causing me, shall we say, a sort of… creative constipation, video-wise. A project which I thought would be short, but wound up ballooning into a monster, a giant, galumphing monster, accompanied by technical failures and creative challenges a-plenty. It was one of those situations where every time I thought I was almost done, some new, unconsidered detail reared its ugly head and sent me hurtling back to the beginning again.

It was, without doubt, the longest, most difficult video I’ve ever made – so long, in fact, that I had to split it into two parts. But I persevered, and here it is at long last! View, ladles and germs, my exhausting but, at last, rewarding behemoth of a project – the Top Ten Golden Age Western Heroes, Parts One and Two!

As I’ve already said, it’s long – very long, over an hour in total. So you may want to space it out a bit. But I hope you’ll watch it, because despite all the sweat and frustration I had to go through to get this thing done, I honestly do think I came up with something worth watching here. There are a few characters that you may have heard of (I’ve mentioned a couple of them before), several that you probably haven’t, and a number of interesting details thrown in along the way.

(Incidentally, hope you like the title cards. I’ve decided I’m going to be making them for all future videos, just to give ’em that professional look – the old ones will get them too, eventually.)

And actually, I did make a few other videos since my last post – I just haven’t posted any of them here because, well, they’re fill-in things that vary in quality. But a few of them are decent, so here’s a link (again) to my YouTube channel if you’d like to check ’em out:

Right, that just about does it for now – but rest assured, I shall be posting more videos here, and soonish. I’m already hard at work on a new one, and things are going very nicely so far, so while I won’t jinx myself, stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy these two!
