The Skybike

Bored today. Play Minecraft? Nah. Make a video? Nah. I know! I'll go on Blender!
So I did. And I made something that's awesome in just 5-7 hours. THE SKYBIKE.
Pics or it didn't happen.
 This first one was back in early development. A lot was missing, like the windscreen, right engine, and shaping on the nose.
 A bit of an ad I put together with the other two images. The "Avon Class" just sounds fancy and awesome.
 Nice, plain view of the Skybike that shows just about all the details.
And finally, a dramatic low shot that captures the elegance of the Skybike.

Now, I'm not done with it yet. I've yet to add more detail, not to mention textures, but look for it in one of my future animations.

Video Update

I've got a lot of video footage saved to my computer, and I'm not even gonna bother checking, but here's some rough estimates at how much I have:

30 Minutes - 45 Minutes of Bryson's Mind

45 Minutes - 60 Minutes of Bryson's Unscripted Adventure

So I need to edit that up, upload it, write tags for them (which I try to put a message in), etc, etc, etc.

Much to my dismay... when I started up Portal 2, the menu seemed perfectly normal, just like on what happened for me in Left 4 Dead. But, when attempting to play the game, my face pulled a "D:". Most or all of the textures and shading were broken, EXACTLY like what happened for me in Left 4 Dead. So, in order to keep up with games that were made past 2007, I will try to scrounge together enough pennies to get a better computer. I doubt it'll happen soon, however.

My Internet Is Horrible.

A quick test on an internet connection site reveals my current speed to be exactly 57.4 KBps. That's horrible. I really need to get better internet, but it'll happen soon enough. Hopefully.

In the CooL-Psymon conflict, I have taken the side of President CooL, and built him a massive superweapon, codenamed Excalibur. Here are some pictures:

 The topmost portion of Excalibur.
A wide view, showing the top of Excalibur and the top of its focusing pillars.
 An ant's eye view of Excalibur. It's massive.
 Bird's Eye view of Excalibur. Just as massive. This was taken on Normal render distance, and the whole thing barely fits in the picture.
A slightly lower angle of the above picture.


Height - 64 M
Width/Length - 50 M (Base is 50 x 50)
Weaponry - Lava-fueled laser
Power Generators - Six dual Steve & Witney Afterburning Turbocarts
Security - Secure lever-controlled, iron double-doors
Firing Range - Can strike anywhere on the planet

I Went Flying in the Nether Again...

But this time I managed to shoot down 28 Ghasts before dying a horrible, fiery death by crashing into a wall and falling into a sea of lava. A few things I managed to do were:

Getting hit by Ghast fireballs without taking a hint of damage;
Fly with my plane on fire;
Crash surprisingly few times;
And remember to turn damage off at the start.

Mod Review #1

I did a mod review, flew around in The Nether, and shot some Ghasts.

I was only kidding :D But still, it may be a while before the next episode is out, for I have yet to even begin work on it.

Guess Wat :D

I've decided to stop doing Bryson's Mind and my animations completely because they take too much work and I'm lazy. Happy trails, y'all :D

Online Chatrooms Exist For a Reason

I was on (online game site, last resort when I'm bored with Minecraft) in a chatroom, and the following conversation occurred:

gamer24065: wat r u guys playin?
Sparky_2234: My Little Pony Xtreme
Sparky_2234: Blood and Gore version

I  love the internet.

Story Time With NotBryson

"Once upon a time, there was a man named Benjamin Turner. He made a popular mind series on YouTube called "Bryson's Mind". One day, while waiting for Jared O'Brien to write the script for Episode 2, Benjamin got bored and decided to screw around with Blender, making awesome, unvoiced, Minecraft-themed animations."


Until Jared finishes the script for Episode 2, or until I get tired of waiting and think of something else, I will release Minecraft-themed animations on a semi-regular basis. End of transmission.

Edit: Gah, now I know why it's called Blender, its camera is almost always tilted, and afterwards, it feels like your head's been put in a blender.

Bryson's Brain Teaser

There's a chicken, a fox, a sack of grain, and a bridge. You must get them all to the other side of the bridge, but you can only carry one at a time. If left alone with the grain, the chicken will eat the grain. If left alone with the fox, the fox will eat the chicken. How do you get them all across the bridge without anybody or anything getting eaten?

Beta 1.3_01 is out (Woot!) and all my mods are broken (Fawk), but on the bright side, the first episode of Bryson's Mind is being uploaded! Current Youtube Estimate: 35 hours (Double Fawk) *EDIT* 45 hours (Triple Fawk) *EDIT 2* 50+ hours (Infinite Fawk) *EDIT 3* 1 1/2 Hours (Infinite Anti-Fawk) *EDIT 4* Accidentally saved it as a sound file (Triple Fawk) *EDIT 5* Re-rendered, uploading (135-150 mins. left). Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to screaming into a headset mic.

The Possibly Best Comic Ever

           THIS Is why I love Cyanide and Happiness.

Episode 1 Status

I have my microphone and episode 1 is all edited and such, but I've just been too damn lazy to do the voice acting. Oh, and I got a few mods for Minecraft that I may or may not put to use in the series:

Aperture Science Advanced Knee Replacements
Flaming, explosive, ice, and egg arrows

Since it's too early to make a new poll, tell me whether or not I should use them.

Minecraft and Mind Meetings

CptCooL2 and I were playing Minecraft. We began our search for Lapis Lazuli, which we refer to as "Blue Shit". Then he said there is a "Mind the Gap" tonight. That is all.

New Mic Has Arrived!

Pretty fancy, eh? It works great, I tested it out on a Skype chat with CtpCooL2 yesterday, so I hope to get back to voice acting pretty soon.

Well, This is Nice

I got the "#22 Most Subscribed This Week (Comedians)" thing on YouTube. That must mean I'm fairly awesome.

Current Upload Status

The video will be 100% done (Processing... ugh...) in 11.56 hours. UPLOADING will be done in 9.86 hours. I still haven't received my microphone, however.

(Tell me if I'm being a little absurd with all these posts, posting too many)

Let The Uploading Begin!

Uploading for the first 11 minutes of the first episode of Bryson's Mind has begun! At the time of posting, it has around 1507 minutes left, which comes out to be... 25.111111111... hours. MORE THAN A DAY. Looks like I'm going to be not doing anything complicated on the internet for a while. It should be out sometime tomorrow. Maybe.

Renderation Fail

I had my video 94% rendered, when I looked at it, saw a part I hadn't voiced yet, and thought to myself, "Shit, I only cut out a tiny bit" So now I get to re-render the whole eleven minutes, which will take at least another hour.

I'm an idiot.

What's Not Done is Not Done.

While waiting for my microphone, I'm sitting with about eleven minutes of Bryson's Mind: Episode 1, with full dialogue and editing, and nothing to do with it. So, in the week(s) before my microphone arrives, I've decided to put up what I have finished on to YouTube. Note that when the full episode comes out, this third of the episode will be taken down. As of now, the Sony Vegas rendering time is up to one hour and forty-seven minutes. Judging by how long the one minute took to upload (Two Hours), this will take approximately twenty-two hours to upload. Jesus Christ, this is going to be annoying.

Microphone Issues

While doing the voice acting for the first third of Bryson's Mind: Episode 1, my microphone was being really annoying, but at least it worked. I had to start recording, squeeze the cable just right, then it would actually record something more than static. But now, the microphone's absolutely shot, and no amount of cable-squeezing will make it work. I've ordered a new headset microphone from Wal-Mart, and it'll arrive in 1-2 weeks, so no voice acting until then.

My Blog is Up!

Woohoo! I'll put up monthly polls for new content in the episodes, and I will give other information and estimated release dates. I will also use this for news about the episodes, the current amount I have finished, and if something went horribly wrong, like my goddamned microphone breaking on me...
