video critique


So, I watched “Rogue One” and liked it so much that I went straight to Walmart and picked up the best character of the movie: K-2SO (god, I love this sassy robot).

Check out my buddy Andy and I as we talk movies and review this exciting film on YouTube. We are “Randy At The Movies”

A Response To “RWBY Talk: The Divided Fandom. By JAC ONEMANBAND.”

So I stumbled upon a video the other night thanks to my sibling and it was entitled, “RWBY Talk: The Divided Fandom. By JAC ONEMANBAND.” Basically discussing the discourse and toxicity in the RWBY fandom.

I watched the entire video and honestly I thought that it wasn’t a well put together video. I wanted to share my thoughts on a few things that he had brought up in this discussion video.

every time I see someone make a video critiquing ugly Pokemon designs they always get fucking salty over Pokemon that were clearly purposefully meant to be ugly like wow buddie I wouldn’t have known that assforaface, the ugliness pokemon, was gross looking without your scathing critique on how it should instead be a generic anime wolf, thank you so much


Why did no one tell me about these incredibly clever videos critiquing the world today with Dylan Marron (known for his role as Carlos in WTNV) ?????

they deserve so many more views!!!

Ashley Mardell is actually such a wonderful person.
Like not only does she constantly talk about gender and sexuality on her channel, she devoted a series of videos to talking about it (the ABC’s of LGBT) she also accepts, and encourages people to point out any mistakes she may have unknowingly made in those videos and then devotes entire videos to showing the critique she receives and to acknowledge the fact that she was wrong. Like she makes sure to have people talk about their personal experiences because she know she as a cis person can’t talk about trans issues. And she always look for places to learn more and educate more people.

What I’m trying to say is Ashely Mardell is amazing and you should all subscribe to her on YouTube.

Post very few to no photos or videos of yourself while critiquing those who like to post how they are learning or growing…..

Hey, I've been recently getting into writing. I remembered a video of publishers critiquing work live? Or at least deciding which works they would throw away and which would be more likely to stand out. I'd really love to see it again, do you have any idea what it could be? Thanks in advance xx

I’ve looked around and I honestly can’t find anything like that.

If you’re talking about what agents and editors look for when looking at query letters and submissions, you can look at these three posts to see common problems:

I can also give you a list of faults commonly listed by agents and editors:

  • No salutation/Not personal: This is when you start your letter with “To whomever it may concern”, when you address your letter to the wrong person, or when you send mass emails instead of individual ones. This is unprofessional and a turn off. Remember, publishing is a business. They need to know you’re serious about publishing.
  • Wrong Genre: Apparently a lot of people submit to agents and editors who don’t take their genre. Always make sure the person you are contacting takes the genre you are writing. If an agent only takes romance and contemporary YA, why would they want to read your sci-fi story?
  • Lots of Mistakes: A lot of spelling and grammar mistakes in your initial submission is a sign that the rest of your manuscript is going to be filled with mistakes too. This gives away a lot about you. It says you don’t proofread, that you may not edit, that you may not be trying your best, and/or that you may not be taking this seriously.
  • Your Query Says Nothing About the Story: Look at the three links above for extended commentary on this.
  • Did Not Follow Directions: Follow the directions. Once again, publishing is a business. Take the time to follow the submission guidelines. Show them that you are professional and that you are serious about publishing.
  • Cliches: Queries that start with hypothetical or rhetorical questions, queries that are filled with cliche phrases, queries that describe a plot that has been done many times before, etc., are usually instant rejections or at least make agents and editors roll their eyes. These things are usually signs of inexperienced writers or people who had not done the proper research.
  • Cockiness or No Confidence: Don’t go write things like “it’s not that good…” or “this is an instant best seller”. If you’re overly humble and play the “sympathy” card, the people reading your submission aren’t going to be so confident in your submission either. If you’re cocky, they’re going to know what type of person you are. Trust me, the writers who show up at conferences thinking they know everything, the writers who are convinced they’re going to write the next great American novel, the writers who attack agents and editors for rejecting them are all are the writers no one wants to work with.
  • This is Basically a Resume: Treat the publishing journey like you’re applying for a job.
  • The Manuscript: The most important part of the submission is the manuscript, or, more commonly, the sample pages. This is the story. It’s the writing and the characters. The actual story is what makes an agent or an editor want your story. If the story doesn’t grab them, if the writing isn’t good, if it’s not what they’re looking for, or if they already have something similar to it, they’re going to reject it.

It’s time for a half-assed sexy girl drawing critique.

(EDIT: actually I meant to say: “half-assed critique of sexy girl drawing.”

You can tell the original artist really went all-out on this work.)

Mastery Is Not Literacy.

One of the greatest complexities affecting our ability to confront video games (and even board and card games) as artistic media is the matter of mastery as literacy. 

I want to be sure about what I mean. 

The video games media had a furor recently about whether a journalist (not even a journalist, most likely an intern) not being capable of playing a game perfectly for site footage capture is a sign that, as a result, reviewers aren’t knowledgeable enough to comment on a game. 

But, to me, by this logic asking people to play games in genres they’re unfamiliar with is asking people to not like the game anyway. 

What we need to get over at this point is that the notion of mastery is separate from the notion of literacy. It is possible for someone to not be good at the physical language of a genre and still be capably literate in it.

The topic for Week 5 of the Weekly Speaking Challenge is: “My Holiday Traditions

Practice speaking in your target language(s) by telling us about how you (and perhaps your family) celebrate during the holiday season!

As always, everyone is invited to participate, and native speakers are invited to critique videos (of those who wish to be critiqued) and create vocabulary lists. I think there are already a lot of Christmas vocabulary lists going around tumblr as is. Don’t forget to use the tags: “#wsc” “#wsc5 (language)” “wsc5 (language) vocabulary)” etc.!
