I originally intended to upload this video yesterday. Unfortunately I just couldn’t finish this video in one single day. However I hope you still enjoy this little retrospective and before you say anything: I’m aware of all the controversy of the Irate Gamer. Keep in mind that what I’m saying in this video is just my opinion. So please keep your commentaries as constructive as possible.

Jack Skyblue Reviews: Krypton – 2017 Teaser Trailer

This is the first video where I’ve recorded my audio from the new home I’m living in. In this episode I’ve decided to sort of return an old root premise of mine and take a look at the trailer for the upcoming Syfy series Krypton, which is a prequel series to Man of Steel, so let’s just say that I’m already excited!

Why I won’t continue with Low Metal anymore

You know guys if you read the title then you know what I’m about to write will disappoint alot of people but I won’t continue working on Low Metal anymore. Let me say first that the decision I took here hurts me alot more than most of you. For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a little history: Back in 2015 I tried to think of a second anniversary special for the reviewer website Team Night Saturn. So at some point I decided that I would love to make a rock musical since outside of movies like Rock of Ages, Repo! The Genetic Opera or Kings of Rock – Tenacious D there weren’t all that many movie made rock musicals out there. I even bought a music program called MAGIX Music Maker Rock Edition by a foreign company called Magix for a very low price for my birthday back in 2016. I already finished the script for the musical short film back in 2015, wrote about four musical numbers and gave this movie the name “Guitar Leads”. However I decided to actually proofread the script again sometime in mid 2016 and discovered alot of errors within the plotline so I decided to rewrite the storyline again while leaving most the lyrics in the songs mostly unchanged. I renamed this movie from “Guitar Leads” to “Low Metal” since I felt that this name was much better and also chose to turn this one single movie into a duology film in order to make up the fact that I wasn’t able to get this movie out back in 2015 as originally planned. However: There were alot of productional issues I had to deal with. First of all the aforementioned music program that I’ve bought had little to no variety to it. The virtual electro guitar was already installed in the software but even that could only play about 10 to 15 (if not even less!) tabs with most of the other tones sounding like a person who never hold guitar tabs with his fingers. I wanted to use the program also to play virtual drums, e-bass and so on to it, for the, well you know, music I planned to work on. But there was one huge problem. You had to buy the other virtual instruments one by one and each of them costs about 30 to 32 dollars which with all due respect is a complete and utter ripoff. I mean seriously: You can save all that money combined to buy some actual instruments. Even if I would’ve bought them all (I made the mistake to buy the virtual drum to this program) there was also the problem that the tone playing just like with the virtual e-guitar was very limited. It was slightly better but there wasn’ really much that you could to tone wise with drums at least from my small experience I had. But again people: Should I really waste that much money for VI’s with limitations? Maybe I’ll do a video taking about the humongous problem with Magix Music Maker but it’s time to get back to the story. At some point I finally figured out that I wouldn’t go anywhere with MMM. So I decided to get rid of that software in favor of Sony ACID Music Studio which had a more expensive price (about 50 to 60 Dollars) but it was definitely worth the price! I was more customer friendly. It has more variety for playing music with my keyboard since ACID would actually allow me to play every sound on all my keyboard keys and I could actually add virtual instruments for free. Granted not all virtual instruments would work on this software but the number of vst plugins is pretty much endless on the internet. So what happened then? The other problem that I had was time because I had little to nothing of it. I always have to go to work from monday to friday with dates between the working days and only two free ones left for weekend which simply isn’t enough for me to work on the music. Next to that was that I simply don’t have enough passion within me to work on the music at weekend or even at days where I didn’t need to work. I really love to do music but it’s something that requires both love and dedication and if you don’t have either of those two demands within your soul then I’m not gonna beat around the bush here: I can’t do it. Working on this project that barely began production just felt like I’ve wasted two years for absolutely nothing. I could’ve spent my time working on several Movie Rehab episodes which for the record I will plan on doing soon again. I will not completely abandon this project however. The other members are still allowed to play their roles and I plan to use the main storyline for either a yet again rewritten short film or dedicate one or two episodes of this storyline in one of my webshows. The idea of the rock musical itself also still has a strong place in my heart which is why I will save my plans for a rock musical for a time where I can actually afford to fulfill this among other dreamprojects of mine. On the bright side: After I’m done with that storyline I will completely focus on doing more episodes for Movie Rehab, SaXtras, Nudie Rehab since I got plenty of ideas in my head that I finally want to live up to their potential. That is all I have to say and I wish you all a great day.

Jack Skyblue Reviews: The Best Moments of 2016

This is the extended version of all the good news I’ve talked about this year. I kept it short in the Holiday video so that it wouldn’t overshadow the other people too much. However I also didn’t want to delete the good chunk of great news I’ve looked up for and considering how bad this has been: Yeah! So I hope you enjoy the good news of 2016 because believe me: With all it’s faults there were still plenty of awesome moments that happened this year. With that said I wish you all Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

Happy 3rd Birthday to Team Night Saturn!

Congratulations. Team Night Saturn is now 3 years old. Can you believe it? It all just began 3 years ago with just me, Jack Skyblue, posting some of my earlier reviews on the site with the intention to create a reviewer portal where reviewers could post their work but also work with each other. It is rather unfortunate that alot of the past reviewers from 2013 to 2016 had decided to part ways with Team Night Saturn, but there will always be new reviewers who would love to be a part of this site. That’s pretty much what Team Night Saturn stands for: That we are working together as a team. I also want to thank all the fans and supporters of the site who stuck around the site since the very beginning. We haven’t had alot of reviews posted on here, but I’m pretty sure that there’s more to come. If you would love to join Team Night Saturn, you’re always allowed to contact me via Twitter or via Facebook. Anyway: I’m really looking forward to more great years and Low Metal will be on it’s way. I have to apologize that it takes too long for this special yet again but after I’m finished with it, I’ll be stopping with the anniversary short films for a while, since they’ve always prevented me from doing more reviews, but to cheer you up. I will probably dedicate new Movie Rehab episodes to each new anniversary. With that said I hope you all have a great day and I wish even greater years for Team Night Saturn.
