Hello!

2017-09-20 21:30:42 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Just got through the channels. A nice small server so far, I hope to see it grow with good people :>

The scandinavian flag there is really an eyeburner and reminds me of the fast food joint "Hotdog On A Stick"

2017-09-20 22:49:15 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

(I actually don't mind the NWF flag, I'll be honest.)

2017-09-20 22:49:48 UTC [Cascade Front #recommended-reading]  

Took some caps of rec'd reading and infodumps from SIG, want me to post them here?

2017-09-20 22:51:48 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Not really, in all honesty. Especially up in the Pacific Northwest- excepting the major cities, it's already majority white. Great land, great climate, good hunting and the like...

2017-09-20 22:58:33 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Here's the difference. Shitskins don't like to work. If everyone has to work, and all the people are naturally hostile towards shitskins, they will not find jobs so easily, and they will not find women or charity. In the absence of things they like, they will either not come in the first place, or will leave rather quickly.

An ethnostate is the only way to preserve a true civilization. Just about everything we love and enjoy today comes from the effort and struggle of the White European people, from philosophical principles to the medical advancements that make our lives twice, thrice as long as the lesser people in the third-worlds. I am tired of seeing my people ground down under the barrage of political correctness that polices us, as White people, and keeps the majority of us from the truth of our own birthrights. I want a _home._ I want a place that is safe for me, for my dear little brother and sister, for my parents and the children I will have in the future. I want a _community,_ where I can feel safe hosting a pool party or digging in a garden, or field, with music on and pets around. I want a _future_ that isn't the slow extermination of my family, my friends, and my hopes and dreams too.
And I can give back whatever hard work will be required. I am a good teacher, with a strong grasp on the hard sciences and the ability to break down those sciences into manageable chunks. I am currently in the process of getting a Biomedical Engineering degree, and would be happy to put what I learn in this field to good use for good people. I am learning cooking, cleaning, preserving, home management, and the like in my spare time. My parents are preppers and have given me some limited experience with butchering and cleaning animals, along with plant identification and basic survival skills. And god damn if I'm not going to fight for anything I need to save myself and the things I love.

2017-09-21 03:15:44 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

I won't be surprised if it happens within ten, in all honesty, given this whole world seems to be getting exponentially more and more screwed.

2017-09-21 03:24:56 UTC [Cascade Front #recommended-reading]  

I would like to generally put forth three classic Sci-Fi books, if you haven't read them already:
George Orwell's _1984_, Aldous Huxley's _Brave New World_, and Ray Bradbury's _Fahrenheit 451_. In that order, given their relevance. If you must pick only one, do choose _1984_. I'll be working to find a PDF for everyone, in case you don't have the means to purchase it or it's banned/restricted.
And yes, I know it's likely most people here have read this, but given the impact these books have and the parallels there are, I find it important to make sure.

2017-09-21 03:26:40 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

I've been laughing, seeing as it's basically hitting the gross places in the world like power-washers.

2017-09-21 03:27:18 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Reefers.

2017-09-21 03:27:38 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

_Reefers all over my damn college campus. It's so degenerate. Help me._

2017-09-21 22:43:53 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

I'd say too, if we're planning to try and expand, an island isn't the place to start.

2017-09-21 23:35:29 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Finance is way more than that, man. It's why there's entire degrees for it. Crazy shit in the tax code.

2017-09-21 23:37:47 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

So here's the question. If, as a community, we all specialize in one area (one person is a shepherd, another orchardman, another wheat, etc) we'd be more dependent upon each other, but it'd probably be more efficient than everyone managing a little of everything. Is this a desirable outcome?

2017-09-21 23:39:45 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

The only issue is that might cause some grating, so it might be a good plan if we give that to the more senior (but not senile) folks, where they can't work as physically as the younger men but still should contribute.

2017-09-21 23:40:21 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

But there may or may not be any senior people who can do finances quite so well, which, of course, just brings us back to the same issue.

2017-09-21 23:44:26 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

We'd need to know the numbers and specializations of people beforehand, though, that way we're not setting a potato farmer on a mountainside.

2017-09-21 23:48:51 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

I'm going to be out hiking with my family. How long do you think it'll last?

2017-09-21 23:52:14 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Can I pop in for an overview of things after? We're usually out for a few hours.

2017-09-21 23:59:59 UTC [Cascade Front #philosophy-politics-faith]  

Some weird unnamed mix of like eight different things, none of which should be compatible with each other.

2017-09-22 00:02:10 UTC [Cascade Front #propaganda]  

Fashwave carries a very specific connotation that i don't believe is reflective of what I've seen in this group, but it isi certainly a nice aesthetic.

2017-09-22 00:35:14 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

Wool is good for fabrics, crafts, etc. It's also naturally more waterproof than many other fabrics, and is flame-resistant.

2017-09-22 00:36:53 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

Flame resistant. And no, water filters are better with sand and charcoal. Wool is much better in socks and heavy costs, especially in PNW.

2017-09-22 00:37:17 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

coats* stupid autocorrect

2017-09-22 00:38:06 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

Honestly, snow is its own insulator.

2017-09-22 00:39:10 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

Not to mention the houses should be sturdy to begin with. If you absolutely must have insulation, straw or pine needles work, or shredded bark.

2017-09-22 00:39:43 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

Really though, the best insulation is a well-made house. At least as far as I understand.

2017-09-22 01:12:40 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Nice to meet another engineer! /waves

2017-09-22 01:18:58 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

I'm gonna have to leave now, take over break's over, seeya!

2017-09-22 03:06:41 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

So! How'd everything go? Any important things I missed?

2017-09-22 03:09:11 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Alright! ^^

2017-09-22 19:29:42 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

It's interesting to see the professional versions of these as opposed to "yeah just pull the leg here and cut here and boom got yourself a pigeon"

2017-09-22 19:31:40 UTC [Cascade Front #propaganda]  

No, I like the black and white. Black has an interesting heraldic/flag significance, and, to quote, "Black often represents determination, ethnic heritage, and/or defeating one's enemies."

2017-09-22 19:32:11 UTC [Cascade Front #propaganda]  

Not to mention things being black and white indicates a strong counter against the moral grey-ness of the left.

2017-09-22 19:33:22 UTC [Cascade Front #propaganda]  

White is purity and innocence, green is fertility and agriculture and the earth.

2017-09-22 19:42:50 UTC [Cascade Front #propaganda]  

Not to mention you could much more easily wear it around in normal society-- it just looks like a boy scout patch when it's in that little circle, you could pass it off as rope tying or tree climbing or the sort. But the people who would know would _know._

2017-09-23 12:55:51 UTC [Cascade Front #propaganda]  

I would actually say pick one of the three-tiered ones, because three has a lot of interesting symbolic stuff

2017-09-23 12:57:51 UTC [Cascade Front #propaganda]  

Besides the deal with three governing areas, three stages of life, three domains, triple gods, mind/body/soul, begining/middle/end, and the like, the triangle is also the stablest shape, and the first possible 2-D image. I vote for a three tiered tree.

2017-09-24 01:29:11 UTC [Cascade Front #propaganda]  

I'm glad we liked the suggestion~ Three tiers really looks much cleaner, will be easier to stitch and all the sort. I like the one protected from rain for a server logo, and while I still vote for just the tree and background as a flag, the stripes are nice. Could potentially be territories' flags, each one a different hue. Who knows~

2017-09-24 01:38:42 UTC [Cascade Front #propaganda]  

I was talking about the trees, 3-tiered trees.

2017-09-24 01:49:58 UTC [Cascade Front #propaganda]  

3 or 4 for the field, depends how much tricolour similarity we want. I was just kinda trying to point out that a fancy pine tree will be hard to draw for normal people, while most people can divide a paper into 4 or 5 evenly.

2017-09-24 09:33:12 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

If you want some tips for studying, perhaps taking a 15-minute break once an hour will help, if you don't already. Also, whatever you study ~15 min before sleep will be what is best retained, so make sure you do your final Essential Points Review before going to bed, maybe when you're doing automatic stuff like brushing your teeth or washing your face. And if you're allowed to chew gum or have mints/tic-tacs/candies during tests, you could try to associate a class and study sort with a flavour and smell. Helps some people with recall. Hope this helps!

2017-09-25 01:30:21 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Dude, Spics and Nogs hate each other more than.. Pretty much anything

Arizona saw snow in the valley twice in my lifetime, it was great

2017-09-25 01:39:56 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Nobody came to school because they were all touching the cacti because _snow???_ and then getting prickers in their hands

2017-09-25 01:40:44 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

We went up to the grandparents' place with plastic boards and just slid down hills, don't think it counts as snowboarding.

2017-09-25 01:42:15 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Yeah. We rarely had the time to really go out, parents couldn't ever get time off work. Would've liked to try once, though.

2017-09-25 01:47:02 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

There is, but I have nobody to go with and no car bc poorfag rn. Jewniversity is eating up all my funding. It sucks, big time.

2017-09-25 01:50:53 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

I have a scholarship, it takes care of most of it, so it'll only be about $10k debt for a bachelor's in Biomedical Engineering.

2017-09-25 01:52:07 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

I figure the 10k is worth it for a good job, seeing base salary for a bachelor's is generally around 80k, and it's a useful thing to have. Medicine and engineering, good stuff for any area.

2017-09-26 10:43:58 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

I find warm showers at first helps get the oil and dirt out, opens the pores, and then cold shower closes em up again, so warm while washing and a cold finish is πŸ‘Œ

2017-09-27 22:10:17 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

Looks... Very floury.

2017-09-27 22:10:53 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

Ahhhh. Well, tell us how it turns out!

2017-09-27 22:11:05 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

Why's it outside, though?

2017-09-27 22:11:44 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

Can't you do that indoors? Just cover the bowl with a damp handtowel.

2017-09-27 22:12:12 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

Hm. Well, alright.

2017-09-27 22:12:41 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

I just stick mine near the window, or by an open convection oven.

2017-09-27 22:14:25 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

Depends how much you open it, and in winter I turn off the heater when I make bread, use the convection oven and bread oven to make the house smell nice and be warm. In summer I can just leave it by the window.

2017-09-27 22:14:56 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

I'm talking one of those lil toaster ovens you make fish sticks and stuff in. Not the full-size oven.

2017-09-27 22:15:46 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

Winter's the best time to bake. Makes the whole house smell like a home, and there's nothing like warm bread and good butter.

2017-09-27 22:16:05 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

And yeah, I can see that. My state's just so warm, I hardly ever need to bother more with that.

2017-09-27 22:43:08 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

You don't double-rise your bread? Interesting.

2017-09-28 21:39:42 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Well, my mom started making bread with us when I was really little. The only thing you really have to watch for is making sure it's all cooked through, it can be hard to tell when you're first learning.

2017-10-02 20:03:48 UTC [Cascade Front #philosophy-politics-faith]  

Well that was a ride.

2017-10-23 11:54:10 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

As someone who has rabbits, I can tell you they're honestly the best option for fur and lean protein. Breed and grow quickly (obviously), and depending on which you breed, you can actually make some remarkably fat rabbits, or some very nice furs. Havanas are generally the best for non-wool furs (they don't shed so much after death, uniform fur length and texture, easier to skin without damaging the pelt) and are fairly decently sized. If you want meat rabbits, I'd say New Zealand Lops, or the Giant Chinchilla. Again, decent fur (though not as much as Havanas), but it's better for non-sale furs. So our own furs.
And, you're a fucking moron if you think quality fur comes from mistreated animals. Beating the animal prior to death causes swelling, hematomas, etc., all of which will both weaken the skin (and therefore cause weak points in the coat and potential holes while skinning) and risk matting and dirtying the fur.

2017-10-23 11:56:04 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

Spaced so as to not spam.

2017-10-23 12:04:08 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

Generally duck or goose is better for down, but yeah. I honestly only have a problem with it when it's wasteful, but- Rabbit is edible, and good, and sustainable. They can't eat _all_ the things that might otherwise go in a rubbishpile or compost bin (rhubarb leaves come to mind), but they're great to give peelings and the sort to. I would just say to stay away from angoras, as they're honestly more trouble than they're worth and a very inbred... breed. Lots of troubles for them, since they had such a small pool.

2017-10-23 12:05:49 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

And on the issue of rabbit-lean, generally that's a problem with wild rabbits more than kept ones. Kept rabbits, while lean, can be roasted in their own fat, or paired with birds like quail or chicken to compensate. Or, you know. Olive oil, butter, etc etc...

2017-10-23 13:47:44 UTC [Cascade Front #shit-posting]  

... I want that just so I can see if anyone I know needs to be dropped.

2017-10-23 13:47:57 UTC [Cascade Front #shit-posting]  

~~On their heads. From a tall building.~~

2017-10-23 14:23:51 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

When prepared correctly.

2017-10-23 14:28:08 UTC [Cascade Front #shit-posting]  

You mean the annual Great Commie Chimpout of November 4th?

2017-10-23 14:33:06 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

No, not at all. You apparently didn't read what I said. To quote:
`you're a fucking moron if you think quality fur comes from mistreated animals`
No quality fur supplier would beat or otherwise torment their animals. The people who actually produce quality goods-- read, NOT the Chinese-- treat their animals with care and respect. A sick, ill-kept, or otherwise poor animal produces poor fur. Minks are not _beaten_ to death in the wild, either. They are caught by foot or neck snares, or in cages, so as to best preserve the quality of their fur.

2017-10-23 14:41:22 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

Oh, you can make simple snares from twine and a sapling. They're not very advanced at all.
Yeah. I am glad we can agree that rabbits are a higher utility, and don't let decade-old peta videos give you the impression that's at all the norm. Most modern people who deal with utility animals do try to be humane, even if it's not always compassionate.

2017-10-23 15:02:20 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

Oh, it always is, which is why people farm animals instead of hunt them, most of the time.
True, and I see what you mean on that count, but at the same time we wouldn't necessarily need to use the rabbits for sale to city people. Fur is an amazing insulator, (hats, gloves, etc etc); and the rabbit itself is good to eat and easy to maintain. But, humanely sourced fur is always going to be a commodity, and rabbit's paws and fur caps will generally sell fairly well, even as just novelty items.

2017-10-23 15:19:27 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

I am actually attempting to learn to stitch furs and leathers. As far as I understand, it depends greatly on the variety of fur you use-- a deerskin jacket/pants/etc will be very different from rabbit mittens or hats. I know certain varieties need leather-and-leather, or you have to use industrial grade needles and thread, while some need awls... But, as it is, I am only learning and am no expert there. Keeping rabbits? Great! I can answer lots. Using furs? Ehm... Working on it. But the degree comes first.

2017-10-23 15:19:53 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

But with a hat, a liner would make it easier to wash, knowing that just from other sewing items.

2017-10-23 15:21:13 UTC [Cascade Front #shit-posting]  

Ahh, that one.

2017-10-23 15:21:58 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Fun thing I learned today: The average woman would have 7-8 kids, if we went as fertility focused as the Amish.

2017-10-23 15:25:44 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

Well, a growing population is the key to a growing industry, and if we're going to be real, birthing under replacement rate is what's killing the white race.

2017-10-23 15:30:12 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

That can all be fixed with a good doctrine and a true community that doesn't put them down for being white, cis, potentially male, etc..

2017-10-23 16:05:07 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

So I checked my phone in lab, not expecting anything like this, and nearly jumped out my damn seat,

2017-10-23 16:05:37 UTC [Cascade Front #plans-and-ideas]  

No, because nigs on crack is potentially the only thing worse than regular nigs.

2017-10-23 16:13:35 UTC [Cascade Front #plans-and-ideas]  

Greenhouses and white ingenuity, clearly. Point is I don't much like the idea of other human species on drugs.

2017-10-23 16:14:08 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

For a moment

2017-10-23 16:14:10 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

I had hope

2017-10-23 16:14:12 UTC [Cascade Front #general]  

You bastards

2017-10-23 16:17:53 UTC [Cascade Front #plans-and-ideas]  

They're separate species, my man, but you wouldn't want pit bulls on drugs so you don't want other dangerous animals on drugs.

2017-10-23 16:20:37 UTC [Cascade Front #plans-and-ideas]  

We don't want subjects, we want a separate place where non whites aren't encouraged to go.

2017-10-23 16:21:09 UTC [Cascade Front #plans-and-ideas]  

And we're not betting on US collapse, not now, and _not_ over a server that can be easily monitored. We just want a little place to ourselves.

2017-10-23 16:26:26 UTC [Cascade Front #plans-and-ideas]  

Yes, but it is in the planning phase, and I am straight saying it's a bad plan to give the lesser species drugs.

2017-10-23 16:42:37 UTC [Cascade Front #plans-and-ideas]  

Our own people could get them, for one.

2017-10-23 17:09:32 UTC [Cascade Front #shit-posting]  

i believe in the nap... i believe a 20 minute nap around 3pm does a person wonders

2017-10-23 19:58:15 UTC [Cascade Front #homesteading-general]  

They're also absolutely delicious.

2017-10-23 21:27:03 UTC [Cascade Front #plans-and-ideas]  

I hate weed as well. All it does is normalize that shit.

2017-10-24 18:00:26 UTC [Cascade Front #recommended-reading]  

White Fang and The Call of the Wild were probably two of my favorite novels as a kid. So much nostalgia there. Moby Dick isn't all high seas and adventure, so I would watch out there, but 20,000 Leagues definitely is. Treasure Island is also a decent one, make sure you get an older version or you might get censored stuff. Also, first edition, unedited Lovecraft is good if you're looking for horror-of-the-unknown, but those are generally a good bit longer and harder to wander through. Dante's Inferno is worth a read, even if you don't believe, and the fact it's in poetic forms helps get through it quickly. Usually you can get it along with Purgatorio and Paradisio. I also personally liked The Island of Dr. Moreau, which is sci-fi and darwinist ~~racist cough~~ ideas.

2017-10-24 21:17:10 UTC [Cascade Front #skills-trades-careers]  

Currently a no here, but I am working on getting the education for one.

2017-10-24 21:57:14 UTC [Cascade Front #skills-trades-careers]  

Biomedical Engineering. Miss me with that libshit.

2017-10-24 22:44:25 UTC [Cascade Front #recommended-reading]  

Island of Dr. Moreau, if you've not read that already, and Brave New World. I'll have to wander through the collection again, but those pop to mind.

2017-10-24 22:48:58 UTC [Cascade Front #skills-trades-careers]  

In my second year.

2017-10-24 22:53:49 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

I mean, engineering requires logic and reason, and so does this stuff..... Only makes sense that the sensible people are drawn to sensible ideas.

2017-10-24 22:57:59 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

Disaster island, that England

2017-10-24 23:00:06 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

Well, if you're white, it might be difficult...

2017-10-25 01:18:55 UTC [Cascade Front #skills-trades-careers]  

???

I personally find Huxley got it more right. Take the heart out of sex, make it all solely for the pleasure, and you control people by the basest part of their animal heritage without them ever knowing something was wrong. After all, most people just want to be happy, right?

No joke but I went to the ostrich farm here in az and it was nuts. You don't realize how big those birds are until you're right by them. Dinosaurs are real, and they make amazing jerky.

I am proud of myself today. Started dieting and adding in some cardio last month, and have been sticking to my plan like a damn limpet... And I went from 155 to 149 lb. It's the first time I've been under 150 since 13ish and honestly, it is so cool to see. I've still got 10 more to go before I'm comfortable, and I know the holidays are coming up, but I really think I can be 140 by Christmas Break. Dunno how much y'all care, but I'm really happy, so.

That's actually a really great place for maths help.

2017-10-30 18:55:42 UTC [Cascade Front #recommended-reading]  

The calculus stuff is really well-done.

Don't worry! I'm quite stubborn when I put my mind to something, and the smaller portions have been great for me just not being capable of eating so much. 5foot 5 inches, which is just about average for my demographic.

I stayed up to see it roll around, but now I must sleep because test tomorrow.

Well, so long as you didn't miss an important class, you should be fine, no? I'm guessing the class isn't a no-absence-policy class, or somehow I doubt you'd be that calm about it. And good for getting back on that! As someone in the biological sciences I can confirm, mind and body are in no way separate. The health of your heart, lungs, and the ability of your body to balance and create the cerebrospinal fluid all is a factor of main-body health. Fat activists are full of shit.

At the same time, you have to get her to really like you, and sharing the same views helps in getting them to like you.

Happy medium-- only eating lunch.

2017-11-01 01:21:08 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

I just like the taste of it. What're the supposed benefits?

2017-11-01 20:29:40 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

I'm making sure to be with my s/o, and I'll be bringing my mini bug out bag with me. Both of us have been really on edge, and I don't know how much stock y'all put in this but half the family has been having really weird dreams about armed takeovers... And they don't even know about the Antifa shit. It's very strange and unsettling.

@StaysafeTV - 191 lb Muscle Man So I just watched your video posted in self improvement, would you like my thoughts on it as far as editing and the like goes?

2017-11-02 06:40:14 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

Sorry! Late-ish dinner for me. Let me get on this...
So, please do keep in mind I'm no professional? These are just mostly things I noticed.

2017-11-02 06:42:31 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

One, the music was a biiit loud. Especially when the violins would start to get faster&louder (crescendo?), they could be distracting, and a few times in the video I was more focused on the music than what you were saying. Not to say I didn't like the music-- certainly a nice change from the other rap/electric of a lot of other similar channels, but it could be distracting. Perhaps use a sort of sound equalizer, or move the peaks of music to the more activity-focused parts?

2017-11-02 06:45:49 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

Two, and on a similar note, when you weren't talking and instead had just shots of (I mean, I should assume) you working out, it was a little weird for me. I'm much more used to swelling outtro music, or music to fill the gaps between talking, but it seemed a bit uncoordinated. So, assuming you still go with the classical stuff, perhaps time the crescendoes with the working-out footage. It'll give the activity a more, uh, dramatic? Epic? feel, while still keeping the focus on you, both talking and performing the activity. I know it'll probably be hard to find music that matches up _perfectly_ with that, but there should be something to match them a little closer.

2017-11-02 06:49:00 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

And, if that's not a thing that works, perhaps try putting voiceover on the workout vids. As it stands, it's something between vloggy and fitblog, which while the vlog would be fine for intro/outtro, it again seems somewhat disjointed to have there be face/notface segments in such a short video. I know you mentioned it was a shorter-than-others video, but usually cuts between face is used for steps, or distinct segments. Perhaps that'll change in the longer videos, but as a first impression from the first video I've seen of yours, that's just how it came off.

2017-11-02 06:49:57 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

Editing, sound/camera quality, etc was all nice for a small channel, not much to say on that other than it works.

2017-11-02 06:50:55 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

I did notice the camera wobbled while you were at the gym-- was someone holding that for you? Perhaps invest in a small tripod, that way if a gym buddy can't make it, there's still a setup, and it'll also seem more stable and professional.

2017-11-02 06:52:45 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

The last thing would be the script. I don't know if you chose it as the "style", but another reason it came off as an odd mix of vlog and fitvid was how it seemed semi-scripted. There was human error, not edited out, and it seemed very genuine, but the "I have thought a whole ton about this" style of genuine. It's charming, in its own way. Not sure if that's what you're going for, but it's how it seemed.

2017-11-02 06:55:52 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

Overall, I liked it! You seemed to have a lot of passion and interest in what you talked about, and gave a nice, simple overview of everything, which I liked, especially as someone who doesn't go around a lot of fitness sites/boards/etc. You've got a good camera presence, and spoke, for the most part, quite clearly and articulately. But again, just my impressions, and I don't do a whole lot of video editing so I am not entirely sure how much of this is "person who has no clue what they're talking about tries to give advice to pro" versus "hey I noticed (x)". But I hope you find it helpful!

2017-11-02 07:20:00 UTC [Cascade Front #off-topic]  

I try to do things thoroughly, no sense in halfassing analyses.
Interesting that classical can be copyright flagged-- not sure what all YouTube will take, and what all you like, but a quick search does show some potential options. I'm no lawyer, can't help much with that. Hopefully it'll be resolved easily...
I can see where you're coming from with that-- I'll agree, it is a lot more clinical, and I'm not saying your girlfriend does a poor job of it, at least not in that video. That is your aesthetic choice, and honestly, it didn't bother me, I just vaguely noticed it, felt you should know.
Not a problem! πŸ‘ Link the next one, when it's out, and I'll go through the video again, if you'd like. And best of luck with your cuts, man! Or, should I say, best of willpower?

2017-11-02 17:02:41 UTC [Cascade Front #self-improvement-general]  

I had a similar problem at the start. I can tell you the smaller portion size does absolutely suck at the beginning, and you will feel hungry. However, I can tell you hunger is a physiological reaction triggered in good part by the weight and tautness of the stomach ("stretch" of the stomach) and that your stomach can and will acclimate to differing norms in relation to that stretch. So after a couple weeks of eating less overall, you will feel the hunger less as your stomach acclimates to a different stretch.

The other option, if you find it's a boredom reaction and it's missing chewing, is to chew cinnamon or mint toothpicks, or celery. I prefer celery, because one stick offers a lot of those little celery fibers that you can just crunch on, and there's decent-enough hydration (as far as snacks go) and good fiber, provided you actually eat the fiber glob at the end. And yes, it's kind of gross to think about, but so is being a wild hambeast.
