Hey guys! Short update post today because I have not been sleeping well lately and my brain is all blaehlehbflhfbblh
The video I am currently working on (halloween-themed movie review collab) has faced a couple of really big setbacks. I’m still super stoked for it, I think it’s going to be a great video, but I must admit that I planned for it to be done by last weekend and I’m only just now starting the editing process. I haven’t done a collab video in literally years, and my rustiness led to me make some critical mistakes while my collaborator and I were collaborating that really set me back. Not exciting mistakes, more like “the camera didn’t record” kind of mistakes. The end result is that I’ve spent all month working on a video that I chose to make specifically because the format seemed like it offered a simple, quick, yet high-quality turnaround. I still think it’ll be a high-quality video, but it has been anything but quick.
This video has to be posted by next week, so I need to direct all of my attention towards it. Unfortunately that means I have to take a break from the M/W/F streaming schedule I’ve been trying to stick to. I toughed it out during my last stream, but honestly when I get behind on a video like this and start nearing the end of the month, it’s all I can think about. I really don’t want to be distracted by that while I’m ripping into Ripper, I don’t think it’d be fun for me or those watching.
So my plan is to hunker in the editing bunker and just chop away until this video is done, and then I’ll return to stream with a clear head for Ripper. Despite the setbacks I’m still planning on starting the stream series this month! I hope to only miss 2-3 streams and then be back for some timely Ripping and Haunted Gingerhouse making.
Also after this video is done I’ll start working on new Mystery Tapes, as well as the new format that I’m dying to try.
In conclusion: Still really stoked about all of the stuff I talked about in my last update, it’s just taking way longer to get this collab done than it should have, which has both gummed up the works, and bummed out the me. Streams are on a brief hold, but I’ll be returning for Ripper once this video is done.
So that’s the plan. I’m sorry for the delay, but rest assured that it is only a delay! I’ll return with video and streams very soon.
Even if I don’t get a Mystery Tapes during my favorite month Halloween Month it would be nice to get it during my typically least favorite month, Thanksgiving is not a day I particurally enjoy I barely enjoy any of the food that isn’t dessert and typically I tend to get really depressed on Thanksgiving maybe because of the cold weather a Mystery Tapes would really brighten my spirits
Usually my holiday specials run a month late, so technically Mystery Tapes in November would be on time for me for October…
Here’s hoping for a holly jolly Mystery Tapes Novembertober.
Feel free to hunker in the bunker, I hope you’re okay and that the work goes smoothly without too much frustration.
No worries, we’ve all been there. See you soon! Good luck with your editing sprint.
You’re doing great with the new schedule, get your rest . We can wait for your greatness!
I appreciate the update and completely understand; it’s hard for me to focus on other things when I know I have something looming over me to get done (especially when underestimate the process and mess up a ton).
I look forward to seeing what you have! Keep doin you, dude
Take whatever time you need away from streams!! VODs will take time to be caught up on regardless, and collaborate must be made!!
Thanks for keeping us in the loop, Ian! I appreciate that you want to be fully present for the streams, and if this vid is preventing that, you do whatcha gotta.
No worries. These things happen. Can’t wait to see the collab video!
good luck in the bunker
Love your videos Ian, I also love your dedication to quality videos. Absolutely stoked to hear we have a collab, Mystery Tapes (!!!!!), and a mystery format coming. BTW, I remember you had a blast reviewing Next. May I introduce you to… Parental Control?…
Cheers Ian, huge fan of you and your work.
This is actually awesome news. I’m interested in your new video, and everything afterwards that you have planned.
No sense streaming if it’s just going to add to the stress, we’ll all be here when you have time to jump back in! Looking forward to the collab vid, fingers crossed you don’t have to deal with any more mistakes, exciting or otherwise 🙂
Man, I’m sorry to hear that! Any time I lose a video project or have a major setback, I find it so hard to push through and do the work again. Mad props for pushing through. I can’t wait to see the new vid whenever it’s done!
Take your time and enjoy the hunker in the bunker! Good luck Ian!

I blame the Ripper and Christopher Walken. Don’t fret. This month has been an Ian renaissance with content that I’m still working my way through — and there is always the obligatory rewatch of past Brutalmoose horror reviews. Happy we are getting at least something a little extra on Halloween.
This made me think of you
