Monster's on top of things. Actually, they knew about the openings before they even happened, according to the timestamps...

I'm really very excited by what we've got planned for this year. We've got an experienced team, good content, and fantastic production gear (Sony A7Rii FTW). Check out what we've already made at bit.ly/drakkvids and subscribe to see what's coming next at bit.ly/drakksubscribe
 
Hello Dear Followers,

(TL;DR - New amazing stuff coming, Please share everything!, and we love you)

I come to you today with a ramble. There is a great number of you who follow us, and our content and enjoy what we do. Some of those people out there even relish the idea of helping us do what we do. With that in mind, I want to tell you exactly what can help the most.

Over just the last year, despite a lull in content, we have grown as a group into a much stronger entity for you. Geeks of all kinds, no matter what, is what drives us to continue what we do, and expand our offerings. 2016 has so many exciting new things coming your way, I just can't wait to tell you about them, and to share them with you.

A little tidbit of info on some of what we have coming is this; we have a new show in production that I just know you will love, and we are going to start producing short films. With our new show we have teamed up with the team over at Why Haven't I Seen This? podcast, and the results are going to be just fantastic. As far as the short films? They are going to range from funny to thought provoking, educational to dramatic. It's just going to be a great time.

Getting us spread around the internet, and into the eyes and ears of as many as possible is the best bet in helping us grow as a community. The bigger we grow, the more we reach, the more effect we can have on the Geek community. So what can you do? Well, that's easy. If you see one of our posts during your scrolling through Facebook, Google+ or Twitter, just hit that share button! If you watched a show and have a thought, or maybe just enjoyed it, hit that Like button and comment! It's those interactions that help get us to more people.

We absolutely love you folks. We wouldn't be anywhere without our growing following. Stay tuned, as 2016 is going to be great!

-Andrew Risenhoover

Unfortunate ad placement is unfortunate.

Ouch. Unpleasantly accurate ouch.

The fact is that Trump is merely a symptom of something far more frightening to me. The frequency and openness with which I hear people talking about wanting to kill all the Muslims – from preachers in their pulpits, to politicians on the stand, to ordinary people in public places – speaks to an increasing normalization of this attitude, a sense that wanting to round up, tag, and murder people by the million is not beyond the pale.

News stories like this one [https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/11/27/man-who-led-armed-protest-at-texas-mosque-publishes-list-of-muslims-home-addresses/], and the steady stream of small-scale anti-Muslim violence, tell me of a persistent danger from what we call "lone wolves;" speeches like Trump's speak of a danger of organized mass action.

In a time like this, Muslims are far from the only ones at risk, in the same way that nobody is safe when their neighbor's house is on fire: the people behind the mass shooting at Planned Parenthood only a week ago have close ties to the people who prowl around mosques with guns or threaten their lives at city council meetings, to the people who enable and advocate for the killing of our black friends and neighbors.

Not to put too fine a point on it, there are increasingly many people who believe that everything could be made all right if we could just teach "those people" their place – and the definition of "those people" has a way of spreading over time.

If we enter a time when our cousins and our fellow countrymen are in profound danger – to whatever extent we don't already live in such a time – it will be a time when we all have to stand up and be counted. To allow these things to happen, to not fight to protect one another, is to be complicit in it.

I'm really happy with how this came out. I spent an embarrassing amount of time getting the animation right on the logo at the end, I mean, other than the half hour of standing in the snow to get the original pictures, but it was completely worth it. If you like this video please subscribe at http://bit.ly/drakksubscribe
 
Sure, this is what we are putting up for potential new subscribers to the channel, but John did an absolute fantastic job with this.  Check it out, and if you haven't subscribed to the YouTube channel yet please do!!

Capsule Review, the Force Awakens: The First Order continues the Empire's tradition of excellent engineering vision combined with slapdash execution. Among the problems which might have been addressed if the Imperial Navy had a robust postmortem culture:

(1) Once again, an Imperial superweapon project is crippled by poor attention to HVAC design and insufficient redundancy. Maybe install some grates?

(2) It doesn't matter how good your biometric scanners are if they can be bypassed by shooting them. Also, Han, are you sure it's a good idea to have an airlock to your cargo bay that opens when you shoot it?

(3) Bottomless pits are the most common cause of death among Sith Lords. Maybe you need one. But if you want to add flair to your lair, have you considered a water feature? Or maybe install a railing on the catwalk.

(4) Someone in the Imperial research corps said, "We thought Stormtroopers were too accurate, so we took away the eyeholes." Then they gave them flamethrowers. This man was an idiot.

(5) If you need to keep a star inside a planet, have you considered building two of the thing which keeps the star in there? It seems like it would be bad if it got out.

The Force Awakens spoiler free review.

This is the highest production value video I've ever made, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. We'll be posting a longer review that's just filled with spoilers later in the week.
