I just got around to watching this video. I did want to point out that on the original SNES game, you could see everyone all the time anyway. The name tags may not hurt the game too much. I can't wait to see it in action.

I just recently got into watching these LP videos, and I've got to say your videos are some of the best I've seen. It normally takes me a few episodes to decide whether I like a series or not, but I subbed to yours after 2 videos. Excellent job. I also wanted to point out that I think one of your major "selling points" is that you create massive builds. I saw your Iron Trench, Iron Foundry, and Iron Titan tutorials and was completely amazed. Although I don't record myself, I am also planning to eventually implement a smaller version of your Synchronized Furnace build in our LAN world. Keep up the excellent work on the videos.

As far as your Hermit Thrills sign goes, maybe the text would stand out more if it had a border or even a 3D feature around it. You could possibly run some darker clay around the text to offset it from the background a little and make the yellow stand out better.

I watched this particular video about 12:00 PM CST, by the way. There was a query about it somewhere in the video. ;-)

I know I'm behind on these videos, but I had some input on the "cactus farm". Since you are using cactus to kill the iron golems anyway, you could let your cactus grow, chop it down, grab the 3 cactus blocks, and simply plant 1 cactus block back. They grow back to 3 high on their own and it should allow your iron golem farm to keep functioning as long as you do 1 cactus stack at a time.

That's pretty sweet right there. That'd be really useful for TangoTek's Boom Box game. ;-)

It'd be pretty cool if you could find a way to get Sarc to actually follow you around and help you out. Creeper defense perhaps? :-)

Dude, the armor stand bit is absolutely epic. I'm totally about to open a creative world and mess with it. Keep up the awesome work on the videos, sir. I can't wait for the next one.

Maybe one day. I'm not a very technical builder, but I do like learning new things. For example, I'd like to see if it's possible to have the armor stand follow me around and help me out. Maybe stand there with a sword and defend me while I build or mine? ;-)

These videos are the best. The designs are always very compact and simple to set up.

So, I decided to go download the Skyblock map after seeing these videos, and I must say, it is quite terrifying to play. I had a thought to, hopefully, keep the lava from repeatedly catching the grass on fire. Keep in mind that I am not sure if this will affect the lava. On my map, I took a half slab and placed it next to the lava block (mine looks like yours did, by the way). I then took another half slab and placed it over top of the lava block. Finally, I destroyed the first half slab. The lava seems to be unscathed thus far.

Eh... The associates are still pretty friendly, but the gas has become pretty crappy since BP lost ownership here. The overall selection and service is still pretty decent. The parking lot setup is not great either. It's not bad, mind you, it just isn't great.

My wife and I went to this particular IHOP as a random treat, as we don't eat out much. The food came out hot as it should and tasted as amazing as I remember from previous experiences. The decor was slightly bland though. The main redeeming factor was the ceiling, which was interesting to say the least. As comedian Brian Regan pointed out in his Comedy Central Presents special, it looks like a cathedral. The service there was really good. All of the staff was quick to respond when asked for something. I rated very good because of that fact, but they missed excellence because I had to ask people other than my server for things. In short, the server could've been a bit more hands on. That is their job after all.

I went for a tux to get married in. I went 3 times total and this review is the overview from all 3 visits. The overall quality seemed very good to me. The building was kinda blah and parking was horrible, especially coming from the east, which is why I gave appeal a good rating. The service was excellent. I walked in the door (they have an annoying door chime, by the way) and was greeted by 3 people almost immediately. After I noticed the tux I liked, the staff showed me all of the colors available, all of the styles available, and the was willing to dress the dummy in all of them (I told them they didn't have to do all that). After colors were chosen, we figured out my sizes, and I told them I would be back to pick it up. When I returned, the staff immediately attended to me again and pulled retrieved the tux I ordered. They let me fit it right then and there to make sure everything was right. The tux itself fit like a glove. I paid them and left again. On the return date, we ended up forgetting to bring the tux back. It was the honeymoon after all. ;-) In any event, I returned it the morning after fully expecting to pay the late fee, and they took the tux, wrote in that I returned it, waived the late fee, and sent me on my way! Needless to say, I was thoroughly impressed. Its not often that people will give you little things that make all the difference.
